[WIP] Daily Deals - Discussion and Critique

Alright, time for a new thread!

This thread is dedicated to discussion, feedback, and data collection on the new Daily Deals feature implemented in version 4.9.0.

WORK IN PROGRESS

General Info
  • Upon logging in, players can click the Offers button on the right side to see three daily deals. These deals are customized for them and targeted towards what they need, are replaced with daily reset, and cost Gems to purchase.
  • There are three types of Daily Deals:
    • Player Level Offers provide rewards whose focus varies on the player’s general level and experience.
    • Kingdom Offers provide rewards specifically targeted towards helping players increase their Kingdom Level.
    • VIP Offers provide rarer rewards or deeper discounts than other offers, but require VIP Level 6 (Effective Value: $210) to purchase.
      • Many VIP offers are the same as an existing offer, but with a 25% Gem cost discount (so a 300 Gem offer becomes 225).

Here are my daily deals for today. The class XP one is particularly intriguing.

(300 value, 25% discount means a total price of 225)

1 out of 3 ain’t bad.

Here’s my constructive feedback for the dev team, after thinking it over for a couple hours:

I thought the point of the update was to provide a tempting daily gem sink that would slowly drain gem reserves. This would increase the versatility (value) of gems, and players would eventually need to spend money if they wanted to keep up with the daily deals and buy tier 4 in all events. I totally support this; it’s a decent way to increase monetization without making any specific part of the game P2W. You choose where to spend your gems, or you make occasional purchases so that you can “do everything.”

The current array of daily deals doesn’t achieve this. Most offer resources that are worthless to lategame players, and many seem to offer very poor gem value. I might buy a Yasmine medal or some deeds, but I need to wait to be randomly offered them. If they’re locked behind VIP 6, I can’t purchase them - which is nuts, because the way to convince me to earn VIP 6 is to drain my gems so that I need to spend money on the game. (Or start selling retroactive Death Knight armor, with scaling gold/souls based on your current level.)

One solution might be to allow players to veto a small number of deal categories. Not enough to guarantee daily deed purchases, but 2-3 would be reasonable. I will never want to buy jewels through a daily deal (I have tens of thousands), so please offer me something else that I might spend gems on. That way I get resources I care about, and you get my gems.

I hope that the team can work out a way to make the game more profitable. A lot of people want to spend small amounts of real money on the game, but it’s hard to find anything worth buying.

Maybe the daily deals are more attractive for early-midgame players, but they seem to miss the mark for endgame players.

Nice find. I hadnt seen a new one in 4+ hours :grimacing: Glad to break the dry streak.

We can probably infer a 400 cost and 2,500 Souls for the Epic Medal Offer as well.

EDIT - Just got confirmation.

All useless to me. :man_shrugging:




Is anyone really going to spend 200 gems for 5 gem keys, 4,000 souls, and 20,000 gold?..

Day 1



Pinged Kafka in the 4.9 thread but I assume this is a bug. No VIP Discount for the Orb Bounty. If anyone else sees it let me know please.

No discount on Wisdom Orbs either

Interesting. We will need to track these VIP only offers as well I guess.

Edit - It appears all 4 orb deals I have info on are VIP only.

I can confirm Orb Cache, Clan Offer, Orb Supply, and Orb Bounty are VIP only and not discounted at the moment.

Oh, that is some fantastic math right there. Lmao

Do anyone outside of the first month or so of play actually need more ingots?

My deals yesterday:


(trash)

(trash)

(I purchased this because of the sheer number of deeds needed to fully upgrade kingdoms)

My deals today:


(trash)

(intriguing actually, given that I need 1 more to get this pet to mythic and pets are becoming more and more rare as people play less PvP – and as more pets come out, pets become diluted – I’ll probably grab this one, even though I only need ONE of him since I have 15 and need 16 to upgrade to level 20, and I already have 151 blue pet food… but it also allowed me to upgrade Darkstone to power level 17)

(trash, it’s the most common medal I get at Difficulty 12 Explore)

Thanks to Angi at Hoguns for sharing that.
