Impulse Donations



AuthorImpulse Donations
If you want to make .com start getting lots of donations follow this advice. Step one make diamond convert rate 1 diamond equals 10,000 gold. Why should you do this, because you have just turned a diamond into something worth buying. People will spend 1-10 euros or $13 dollars on the game every so often if it got them 100k gold to help pay for pvp, records, and etc. The first rule of sales is if you are selling something super expensive you don't show the people the price until the end. A majority of the things you can buy with diamonds are too expensive to spend on the game every day basis. You can supplement this by making cheap things worth slightly more without breaking the game economy, and still making money for yourselves. Admins if you do this I promise your income for this server will go up!

the threshold to buy for people who never bought diamonds would be lower...

but on the flipside: the people who already bought diamonds won't be too happy about this idea...

p.s.
dude! what happened to your 'enter'-key? ;)

i only donate for upgraded units, but if my money was worth more in-game gold, i would definitly purchase more diamonds :)

-1 It will increase the power of paying players by a long shot and the game will remain free for all just for name sake. The current conversion is just right.

i agree with Vlaer

i played Tr@vian for years
until the day i found this game :)
the same thing happened to that game
you can play without money, but it makes you "lower league"
and that is frustrating, so many people quit fast

i would say that the biggest problem is total absence of advertising this game
i found this almoust totaly by coincidence
if i knew about this i would start playing years ago
and i buy diamonds, for upgrades mostly
but you dont have to buy it if you dont want to
and you can still compete with equals of your lvl
you can advance slower, but that actually makes you even stronger

anyway, admins if you can do this, legaly, start advertising for gods sake :(
this game has a lot of potential players, i would bet on this
you just have to tell them you exist :)
and they will spend
and you will have s stronger, stable gaming community

everyone wins :)

you have made a great game
dont be so shy ;)
I understand the idea behind this suggestion, increase the value of a diamond four-fold.

Now the question is, Would this be a benefit or drawback ? the number of euros donated is the key...the number donated at the moment is low, increasing the amount of their worth would greatly increase the number of people buying, increasing profit

however, if the amount of euros donated is high then profits will decrease, if I was to buy 250k now it would cost me 100 euros, but with your suggestion, only 25, so they lose out on sales.

Debeljucko makes a valid point, but this idea will not make the number of unit upgrades bought, it will increase the amount of diamonds transferred into gold. This gives all players a choice, invest many hours enrolling, or spend a less daunting amount of your hard earned cash to get the amount of gold you desire. either way will benefit players and the admins
I think so many players have donated so much for this game .. :)

So advertising is not good, and this server is not like .ru that is more attractive .. :)
Why not increase the amount of diamonds worth, but less than suggested.

Make each diamond cost "only" 1$ instead of 1. I still would not buy any more Diamonds, due to admins permanent absence, but maybe some people might waste more money on it then.
Aswell this way the conversion-rate is not increased so much that the people who already bought diamonds won't get too frustrated (even though the fact of investing more than 1 into this game is absurd).

and what about those who work everyday in lg etc ?
doesnt sound fair for me.
I dont like the increase rate for diamonds , 2500 goald each is fine.
But maybe do something like the posibility of purchase arts with diamonds.
This way diamonds will be more usefull.

i.e. :
A defender shield cost 3120 gold + 1 wood = aprox 3300 gold
1 diamond = 2500 gold
So buy defender shield with diamonds should be : 1,32 diamonds

To do this a bit more attractive could be done a little discount ( 10% ? ) to the total amount of diamonds if you buy this way.

So the final price could be 1,32 - 10% = 1,18 Diamonds.

Dont like this idea too much but better than a 10000 or 5000 gold ratio for diamonds.

for Apocalyptum:
yeah i totally agree you enroll whole day thats why you have lg4 LOL :)
think about it people... if the admins raise the gold exchange for each diamond, they become more worthwhile to buy, meaning more money for admins, meaning more attention from them (kind of skeptical myself but might happen), and if we get more attention from admins, we might get new updates/events, and then this server would no longer be dead and pretty much a waste of time for many people. (I am addicted to this game and the only fun i have from it is pvp/tourneis. otherwise it is not very good because hunting and mg get boring fast.)

Buying item with Diamonds should be
Diamond exchange rate is fine ,
But For the case of buying items with diamond, The diamond should worth 1= 5k +
Like you all said, a high advantage to paying players is the sole reason I left Travian. The current diamond to gold exchange ratio is just perfect. This gives motivation to some people to donate, but doesn't make the game too much disadvantageous for non-paying players. one more thing. If the game becomes more of a paid game, more and more players will leave the game. Already, there are a bit less people here. In this case, the active accounts will decrease to such an extent that even playing players will have no fun in playing and leave the game. This would further decrease the income and popularity of the game.

The current exchange rate is the perfect one. I can see that the admins have pt up a lot of effort to come up to this exchange rate which is highly satisfactory, concerning both sides, the donators as well as the non-donator players. this is what makes this game stand out from other useless games which gives too a high advantage to paying players. And like merlin36 said, increase in the exchange ratio would also disrupt game economy.

This will surely create an imbalance on gameplay.
