…and I bet a ton of others would, too.
This is secondarily a joke thread as I know the devs have stated that cosmetics will never happen but is primary commentary on recent events.
I know that this is a topic that comes up all the time, but it is mind boggling why it has not been implemented when it would generate revenue in a way that does not antagonize players but rather they would absolutely love. (Unlike a certain new event that you might have heard about.)
Creating cosmetics such troop modifications would require significant work, both to implement and design, but there are already two existing systems that would allow for simple expansion of cosmetic options:
- Hero style
Both of these already exist in the game. Creating more options at palatable prices* would allow monetization of non-whales who would otherwise never spend money on this game because the premium shop is a hilariously bad value. But fighting elder gods with a top hat? That’s priceless.
*There are already premium cosmetic pets (the platform exclusive ones), but there’s only a handful of them and they cost $50. Similarly, there’s only two hero styles available and they’re also horrible values at $10 despite including some other items.
I just remembered Tacet’s stream mentioned selling the ability to select festive themes whenever you like . Those assets already exists so the only work necessary would be programming the functionality.
The following is from below posts, but it is important include in this thread’s introduction.
The counterargument to the cost of creating cosmetic items is the following:
I’m going out on a limb here, but I don’t think the devs broke even on the cost of creating this asset.
