      Unhappy Timed Rewards bundle is being retired

      I just received this email:



      In December 2020 or January 2021, you purchased a special Timed Rewards bundle which included a 12-Month Membership and 5,000 Crowns every 30 days. Unfortunately, this bundle is being retired and changes have been made to your account as a result.

      Effective today, 11/17/2021, your account has automatically transitioned to a 25% off discounted 12-Month Membership with no recurring Crowns bonus.

      Don’t fret, you’ll still be receiving all the Crowns you would’ve gotten by the end of your original subscription period, we’ve just paid it out all at once now.

      To view the changes to your Membership, please go to the “My Accounts” section at Wizard101.com.

      To view your Crowns payout, go to the “Crowns History” tab within “My Accounts.”

      See you in the Spiral,
      The KingsIsle Team


      I am VERY disappointed by this decision. This was one of the very few bundles that was actually worth its price, and $90 a year is a lot to ask from a person. A discounted yearly membership is still worth it when compared to not having a discount on yearly membership, but it is only a savings of $30 per year ($2.50/month). Without a small supplement of Crowns every month, useful for Energy Elixirs and expanding backpack space, it feels more and more like it isn't worth having a membership at all. I'm hoping that @Sparck can tell the rest of the KI team that this bundle should NOT be retired.

      Re: Timed Rewards bundle is being retired

      I always wondered how many players took advantage of this timed-reward membership bundle. I don't think it can have been popular enough, if they are deciding to retire the concept so soon. Either that, or the purchase by Gamigo is now affecting this area of the company and the bundle doesn't meet new standards being applied.

      Membership PLUS Crowns purchases seems to be best for the company, and they have never actually raised the prices (yet). Current inflation rates in the United States may yet affect this, we don't know.

      Re: Timed Rewards bundle is being retired

      Also kind of disappointed to hear that.

      I've always been on the side that members should receive a small monthly crown allowance and this is the only model that kind of played into that idea. Most premium games give out a tiny bit via loyalty programs/to subscribers in general so this seems pretty stingy to even remove it from a paid subscription sale

      At the very least they should/could add a discount to reoccurring crown purchases or something, say someone does buy once a month, give them 25% off each consecutive purchase then on unless they lose their streak.

      That particular one had to be retired do to a change in the system that will make everything better. I do plan on having something similar out soon. Don't worry too much.

      I do hope that this similar thing will be as good, if not even better, than the Timed Rewards that were discontinued today. But it's good that something is in the works.

      Re: Timed Rewards bundle is being retired

      A new membership system is coming. There are already spoilers out there on it. Essentially, the longer you are a member, the more rewards you get. I'm sure there is a technical reason why they couldn't/wouldn't "double dip" of off the same monthly membership. In other words, they are replacing the Crowns rewards in the timed monthly package with in-game items (instead of providing both).

      Expect this new system to launch in December (late December most likely).

      Well, the replacement for the Timed Rewards bundle was shown off today. It's $60 for 60k Crowns spaced out over the course of 12 months. It's only available for players who have a 12-month membership. But the problem is that the 12-month membership already costs between $60 and $80, depending on if you get it on sale or not. This means that the Timed Reward bundle is back, but more expensive.

      This deal was good when it cost $90, but now it's well over a hundred dollars. I don't see how this is a better deal at all.

      I agree completely. I take from this offer that crowns sales will be even fewer throughout the year, and they are already scarce. KI is raising the bar for people who want to buy crowns - either buy them at full price or go without.

      Yeah, this is definitely a worse deal than last year.

      The system I was previously referring to is still on the way. In the last KI Live, they indicated it was suppose to be unveiled with the Lemuria launch, but that new membership "loyalty" system was delayed until next year some time.

      So, there is still something new to look forward to regarding memberships, but this "deal" is just two normal sales offered at the same exact time.
