      Re: Sub perks?

      It was recently my anniversary on one of my accounts and I got something small sent to me. I do think, that they should have something coming soon.

      I do think we are due for some new perks.

      Looks like they'll be as limited as Lost Pages and BOXES. I'm also betting they'll be so short in duration that there will be outrage from members who missed out. I will have little sympathy even though I went and membered up.

      You also forget we've now got three member exclusive emotes so people can lord it over their fellow wizards that they're a privileged member with fancy dance moves.

      Re: Sub perks?

      Crowns players have a perk too!

      You get to keep the areas that you have bought. Subs players stop paying their subs and they are relegated to Wizard City. Crowns players stop buying crowns and they can still access all the areas that they could before.

      We can get energy by buying it and instantaneous hatching timers by buying a potion... maybe there should be a potion for crafting timers too? Or is there one already? PVP and Derby are already purchasable.

      I agree though that it would be great if we could buy extra backpack space and more room on our friends' list.

      These and possibly the crafting, appear to be the only actual exclusive membership perks at the moment.

      I think they will advertise the arrival of the 'promised' perks in advance, as part of a massive subs advertising campaign. I hope they don't just sneak them in, as a tweet, for half an hour.

      Re: Sub perks?

      Could we please not turn this into an "us vs. them" thread yet again?

      I'm afraid that, if and when they do come out with some limited time perks, it will just cause more hard feelings and animosity. As a subscriber, I don't feel that they need to do any more to keep my business. I get what I get because I chose to subscribe.

      BUT -- if they are trying to turn Crowns players into subscribers, only current Crowns players can say what treats would entice them to switch. So many Crowns players think they deserve benefits just for having already bought a bunch of areas. I saw a lot of posts saying they would NEVER switch after having spent so much money. We do know that the current member benefits are NOT sufficient to cause them to buy subscription.

      They got a LOT of feedback while the Member Benefits were in the Test Realm, and I am not surprised that they need some time to consider how to proceed, considering the backlash that happened.

      Exactly.

      I'm a subscriber myself and even I had some things to say about these insane and crazy benefits. They made practically everything free and the doubled EVERYTHING was insanity. I have never in my life seen such greater divides between "benefits" of players in my life.

      I'll be more than happy to not see these come to live anytime soon. Yes, I am 100% a subscriber, rarely buy crowns, and usually only use them on tournaments, stitching, and energy elixirs. That's it. And those elixirs are rarely since I never have many pet projects to work on.

      The amount of animosity that occurred between players and people on this forum during the test realm when these benefits were allowed was so distasteful I almost wanted to flee Central, so I'm very much grateful they haven't occurred yet.

      Re: Sub perks?

      Member Benefits is not a new concept. Many companies offer member benefits to their members. And some offer even more benefits depending on which tier you are.

      Example, my AAA membership allows me certain things. However, were I to pay a little bit higher in the annual fee, I would get even MORE benefits. That's how benefits work. I have never thought of AAA as dividing people in to haves and have nots. We each have a choice. If a company wants to give members benefits, or more benefits, we can decide at that time if we want to be a member if those benefits are to our liking.

      Many games have member benefits. Airlines have member benefits. Stores have member benefits. All kinds of companies have member benefits. Everyone CAN have them, there is no separation, unless one chooses not to participate.

      The greatest thing since sliced green bread.

      Re: Sub perks?

      I could see making a 2nd tier Super Account for subscriptions. With a larger monthly price...


      If so, maybe KI could make a "Perks Only" account for Crowns Players, without access to areas? If KI can clean up the bad language, and level the playing field in the arena, I would have to give a "Perks Only" account some serious consideration.


      Or, maybe just a "Super Perks" account that all could use?

      Sorry, did not mean to start anything. Was just feeling a bit irked at a couple of the comments and wanted to point out that there were positives for both sides. Did not mean to fan the flames.

      Still cannot help thinking though, that if they advertise in advance when the new Membership Benefits will be happening that they WILL be available to everyone, for, given enough warning, Crowns players can purchase them for 5,000 Crowns (and get a month's membership thrown in.)

      Was that fanning the flames again? Ugh, hope not.
