Title: Subscription Changes - January 23rd, 2008
Post by: Dragoon on January 24, 2008, 04:24:47 am
The following changes will be made to subscriptions:

- Bronze Subscriptions ($5.00) no longer give 10 dust and a Royal Rhodes every three months. Instead they receive 25 Subscription Coins every WEEK.

- Gold Subscriptions ($8.99) no longer give a Royal Rhodes every couple months. Instead they receive 65 Subscription Coins every WEEK

These subscription coins can be used to trade for items at: http://www.toadwater.com/TWeb/CoinStore.php

The prices may fluctuate due to demand, but we find this change to be a great value to those who have a subscription.  Now they can choose the items they want. Additionally, new items will be added in the future. Many UNIQUE to subscribers.

Note: Current Bronze Subscribers have received 100 free coins. (4 weeks worth)
Note: Current Gold Subscribers have received 250 free coins. (5 weeks worth)

If you have a subscription and you did not recieve the default coins, please PM or create a ticket.

Coins are added every Monday or Tuesday.

Are these coins tracked in-game, and if so will we be required to have room in our inventory?

Typo?

Maybe it mean you get your 50 a week plus an additional 50 a month

Quite frankly, I'm a bit pissed. Not only have you made me wait two months now, but on top of it you made that special statue that was valuable purely because it was rare abundant. So not only did you still not pay me, you actually went and made my price worth less, by artificially creating more of it. Nice.

You can now trade coins to any player, even those who don't receive coins weekly.

The amount of coins given every month for Gold Subscribers has increased by 15 to 65 a week. The default amounts for this whole ordeal has not changed, however.

It seems to me that previous subscribers should be able to get the same thing with coins as they were getting before this change, but if I buy 10 dust a month assuming 4 weeks in a month i only have 25 coins left and it would take me 4 months to buy a royal rhodes instead of only 2 months as before.

Or said another way with less rounding, if I buy a royal rhodes every 2 months, in 6 months I would have 3 statues costing 300 coins from the 750 I would get in 26 weeks.  I'm using 6 months because it is easy to make half a year or 26 weeks.The problem is that I would only be able to buy dust for 4.66_ of those months as before we would get 10 dust each month and now I can't afford it.

Was this an intended nerf to our subscriptions?

Although that was considered as a possibility -- not exactly. If you still wanted the same amount of ashes and statues, you would, yes, be 25 coins (a week behind) short over a period of three months.  However, with the addition of alternate trade-ins, especially a shorter wait on Royal Rhodes, I was hoping that it would replace that gap. Additionally, just like all subscribers recieved free coins at the start of this, this will happen at random times in the future at well, making it well over the old system of prizes should you choose to recieve the same thing as before.

I hope this answers your question.

Hey, just FYI, I only got 50 coins with my gold subscription this week.

That was the default I tossed for the subscription. The 'trip' was activated moments before.
