Red face Wad's Purchasing Idea!

After playing a various amount of games, I have noticed a new type of purchasing system that is quite popular now. This new method is, paying money for points which you can buy stuff with. Graal is almost like this but you can only buy gelats in large amounts. You should be able to buy 10gelats = 1$ USD.

- The price of gold would decrease to about 100gelats rather than 300gelats - 30$. Servers can also release a LARGE variety of new npcs players can purchase with gelats.
- With gelats, you can also change your account name (can be thought through), transfer them from account to account etc.
- Players can also rent a playerworld for 6months (500gelats - 50$) or 12months (1000gelats - 100$).
- Classic would also be lifetime again but for a cost of 250points - 25$, or you can get it monthly for 50points - 5$.
Advantage of having lifetime classic is your account name will be what it is, if you rent than you will have a community name!

If anything; with this new plan, players would rather spend more money on Graal than now. I mean, MANY people will buy lifetime classic accounts, this will roll in large gamer bucks!

All in all, players should be able to buy gelats in smaller packages (1$=10gelats, 5$ = 50gelats, 10$=100gelats, 25$ = 250points, 50$ = 500points, 100$ = 1000points), reduce the gold price to 100gelats - 10$ and release more items which you can purchase with gelats.



Tell me what y'a think!

give players a discount for purchasing a higher amount of gelats.

example
$5 for 50 gelats
$8.50 for 100 gelats

etc etc.

Yeah, that's good..

I just hope Stefan does some changes to the gelat system, perhaps one that is similar to this one.

Yes, it might give them more money... but I highly doubt that that will increase Graals population.

I stand by my point; We need to get rid of the Gold/P2P thing.
Stefan would get his bucks trough more people starting their own server.

I doubt that Stefan will make changes >.>

Correct me if I am wrong but unixmad controls the prices, right?

Or they could just let people purchase the shop items directly with USD instead of jumping these gralat hoops.

You can buy smaller packages of gelats with SMS text messages or phone, and get bigger packages with credit card.

Texting is like...10x's more expensive too. So not worth it.
To buy 1 month of gold worth of gelat, you would have to pay 9 dollars in the US.

Versus 30 dollars for 8 months....does that seem right to you?

has the idea of a free to play game where players can buy cosmetic modifiers or perhaps slight edges (triple EXP rate, increased money gain, etc) can be purchased been thought of? It seems to be becoming a popular format (FreeRealms, Battlefield Heroes)

I would think the biggest problem with implementation would be having things that work across all servers but it may prove profitable if coupled with advertisements.
