Why the Fantage Developers are Stupid
Allow me to rant for a second here.
So if you checked out Fantage on March 17 2016 you’ll notice that there are some new FANTASTIC updates! Here we got a greedy money maker company who pays their workers minimum wage, who decides that they need more money in a stupid manner!
They essentially made it so only premium members, the people who spend at least five dollars a month to have a higher level than anyone else and can be a total cheapskate because they can wear starred items which are worth much less than their coined counterparts can purchase permission!
Now you could argue that non members can still obtain permission from the daily attendance and Luckybot, but when you think about it, doesn’t that make no sense? So people can get permission for FREE, but they can’t pay for it? I’m pretty sure they intended to remove the entire feature for nons! Eventually free permission will be removed too! They most likely overlooked the idea.
Anyways, Fantage does want more kids to steal their parents’ credit card, but this is an IDIOTIC way to go around it! LET ME TELL YOU WHY!
REASON 1: MOST PEOPLE ON FANTAGE SPEND THEIR TIME IN MYMALL.
Now that there’s no intensive for non members to play unless they are rich, there’s no reason to go on Fantage anymore! Not everyone is interested in investing real money into a virtual world! Not everyone is going to go that far!
Besides, if they wanted membership, they would have gotten it in the first place! Sure you might drive 1 or 2 people to purchase one, but you’ll have more people quitting than spending some cash monthly!
REASON 2: IT COSTS MONEY FOR PERMISSION ANYWAYS!
For one day it costed 300. 800 for 3 days. And it was around 1400 for a week. It isn’t just small pocket money, it’s quite a lot! So… What’s the point of making it only for members, considering that most people buy gold in the first place? They’re still making profits this way, no need to remove it!
REASON 3: THERE ARE MORE WAYS YOU COULD HAVE PROMOTED MEMBERSHIP!
I believe that members do not have many rights. They can buy items with stars in shops, wear starred items, have cheaper MyMall permissions, can post 5 items in MyMall, buy SOME limited items, and they can level up more. That’s it. BUT C’MON MAKING IT SO NONS DON’T HAVE PERMISSION IS SUCH A HUGGEEE DIFFERENCE!
HERE ARE OTHER WAYS YOU COULD HAVE PROMOTED MEMBERSHIP, BUT NOT REMOVE THE RIGHTS OF NON MEMBERS:
- ACTUALLY GIVE MORE THINGS IN THE DAILY ATTENDANCE. LIKE MAYBE HAVE DOUBLE THE REWARDS!
- DISCOUNTS WHEN BUYING SHOP ITEMS WITH ECOINS! (AND GOLD, I GUESS.)
- INCREASE THE MONTHLY STAR ALLOWANCE. BY A LOT. 5000 STARS IS LIKE NOTHING NOWADAYS. WHY NOT MAKE IT 100,000? (After all, it just saves time for people to play those childish games over and over again.)
- PROVIDE A ECOIN ALLOWANCE AS WELL, CONSIDERING THAT THEY’RE BASICALLY OBSOLETE. 5,000 ECOINS A MONTH?
- MORE OF A DISCOUNT ON MYMALL TAX?
Anyways, the point is, you can add more features without removing features that non members used to have. I mean what is Fantage now, Club Penguin?
