urm for the whole post i'm just curious about 1 thing.Originally posted by Rentzusuken+--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE(Rentzusuken)</div><!--QuoteBegin-InfinitemadnessPriestish is correct, that post is just drama. Not "baby-mama drama", but "romeo, romeo, wherefore art thou romeo?" drama. You may not even be aware of it, but you are using misdirection. Sure someone's being raped not even five feet away from us, but look at this cute little bunny! :rollseyes:Ahh priestish, it wasnt Drama. But thanks for the tear!
As you began this thread, you mentioned people hitting the XP cap and thus no longer needing the XP boost granted by the Gold level of premium. You then provided a case that although the zenith of XPing has been reached, there may still be more to be done within the game. You use this reasoning to launch a discussion on ways that K2 can provide "more" in order to keep people paying more, i.e. invest in gold premium instead of dropping to silver or bronze or even dumping premium all together. As I said in my previous post, it is about diminishing returns. Somewhere along the line you were made aware of people hitting the 70 cap and no longer investing in gold premium and it got the "creativity juices" flowing for you and here we find ourselves today.
The post that Priestish called Drama essentially states "we know there are problems and that the customers want X, Y, and Z, but let's move beyond that and see what else you want". It was a heart-rending story about hard work done in the past(you), a splash of tragedy(devile), and even the "good guy" getting kicked yet perservering(you again)...but of course the bad guy(James) gets it in the end. Bravo. If only it had a catchy phrase, it could have beaten Brokeback Mountain at the awards ceremonies. Perhaps it could use a line from the movie and we just apply it to the game: "I wish I could quit you".
Your point for this thread is obviously to gain investors into your gold premium offering. You mentioned marketing and a business standpoint in your post and expect people not to pick up on that? Sure, some of us have "picked up on what you wanted to achieve", and it's those of us who see this as an opportunity to generate more money. Whether you know that's how this post is geared or not does not matter; it is what it is. It's certainly nice of you to step forward and ask the customers what "extras" they want for their service, but don't expect the reception to be all flowers if you can't even deliver the basics of said service. Who cares about extra KC or upgrade scrolls or abyss gems if you don't get an answer about a hacked account? Who cares about not losing any percentage of XP when others macro entire levels without recourse? Who cares about increased upgrade percentage when dupers have 100% chances of getting their desired items?
Adding new benefits to premium may give you a slight boost in sales initially, but it will not continue over time. Then again, that's all K2 has really cared about anyways, isn't it? Pardon me, I had forgotten, they do their damndest to keep the cheaters that pay for premium.[/b]
