Premium Membership Preview/Feedback

Postby NiteHawk » Wed Sep 12, 2018 6:35 pm

I'm working on finalizing premium membership. Most of you have already seen the page here at this point:

https://ember-online.com/premium/ (doesn't look good on mobile yet/sizing issues, still fixing this sorry.)

Premium Memberships
-Bronze will be priced at $3, the price of a cup of coffee and just a way to help donate if you can't do much but want to as best you can.
-Silver will be priced at $6. I expect most people will want this package the most as it gives the most bang for the buck.
-Gold will be priced at $10. It's more of a 'I want to help the game!' package. It gives a little more still though!


On top of that there are a couple extra options:
-Character renaming: Priced at $8. Rename your character to any valid character name available. This isn't the only way to obtain this, as you can potentially get a scroll via the premium wheel spin, though rare.
-Item renaming: Priced at $20. I figured that there would be a way to help the game a great deal (aka people who want to support the game) and this would be a good way of supporting it. I wasn't sure if $20 was too low, but honestly I don't want to go lower then $20 also as I still do want it to be a fairly rare/harder thing to do. The item itself is still visible via look over, (I.E. might say something like 'Name is wearing his Superarmor (Leather Armor).') so it's still possible to know what the item is. Item names will have to be unique however, and certain names might be blocked out (i.e. Ember named items I'll probably not include.)

I'm not sure if there's anything else people have in mind. I want to leave character images to the masks though as I think it's more of a fun system that way at the moment. If anyone has any other ideas that doesn't involve P2W for combat/etc then feel free to throw it up.

I am hoping at least to keep the server going ($70 a month) and domain ($1.5 a month). Then eventually a proper license for the game which is probably another $20 a month so we can shut up antiviral programs, etc.

To clarify, these prices for the levels of premium are monthly?

I think the prices are more than fair, even monthly. I'd pay 10 bucks a month just for the storage amounts the gold level provides, but I'm also somewhat irresponsible financially so that opinion may not be widely shared.

Do you have any plans to release higher priced options for a one-time fee to do things like a permanent increase to global storage, or is that getting too close to something that could be considered pay to win?

If at all possible a yearly donation would be better for those of us who don't like to keep track of monthly dues.

Not sure yet, it's something I'll think about and might be OK with. It won't occur before release of premium but I'll have to decide on it once I see how it works out. It would probably be a one time though on Gold, and would have to be worth it in terms of myself (I.E. if everyone just does it, and then there is a problem.) There is also the issue with if one day (10y down the road) we decide to shut down the game, people who pay for unlimited might get upset, etc.

I appreciate that, but IMO if you want to donate more feel free. That or go make some neato renames. I don't think it's worth that much. :P I'm honestly not sure of the price for method to rename your item (20? 25? 30?) though atm I think it's alright.

I think renaming could go up to 10 bucks but I think an option for 3,6, and 12 months would be nice you could also offer rewards for purchasing that many months at a time for example 12 months of silver could be a free name change, or 6 months of gold and then 12 months of gold could be one free item rename.

I'll probably throw in a potential gender change and image change long as its an image from the character creation page. Yeah we'll see about 'rewards' too.
