Don’t do this. Ever. I know it sucks…but just, don’t. Corporations give precisely zero [redacted] as long as the bottom line grows.
It’s never enough. F2P is literally uncapped earnings potential and investors expect profit year-over-year. It will never be enough. This is why at some point the F2P bubble will burst. There simply won’t be any more customers to milk. Monetization efforts will become more desperate. Shareholders will hold corporations’ feet to the fire.
It might not be in the near future, but the customer pool is finite in size. Even if some company is eventually able to bring in every single person on planet Earth that is still a finite number. The uncapped earnings will eventually stop increasing, and these houses of cards will start to buckle. I seriously hope I’m still around to see it. The rampant greed makes me sick.
If they ultimately get your $10/25, the objections don’t matter. Players’ objections, no matter how well thought out or how respectfully written, are the equivalent of flies buzzing around the corporate head. As long as the number at the bottom of the balance sheet is bigger than the one at the bottom of the last balance sheet, they’ll happily spray fly killer before laughing all the way to the bank.
Corporations understand money. That’s it.
People who love the game and want to support it should do so, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be educated on the fact that unless they are whales/super whales, their opinions mean precisely diddly squat to the decision-makers. (I may even be wrong on the bit about whales’/super whales’ opinions mattering, but based on what I’ve seen in other games, there is a level of spending at which the company will at least pretend to care what you think in order to keep you spending.)
