Turn Frequency and Pricing
#24
An update as to where we are. First, a note - the playtest is going well. We've made many enhancements in presentation we think our players will like, and more work on that is still underway. We believe the first two "real" games will be ready to go sometime in March. We'd like to start two games simultaneously with 30 different players. After three turns to make sure we have no hiccups in those two games, we'll start additional games.

On turnaround, based on the poll and conversation, right now it looks like the first games will be with a max 4 day turnaround. Experienced Alamaze players are comfortable with a shorter turnaround, but newer players seem to like the additional time. So we'll start with the 4 day and consider other alternatives down the road, although I want to avoid too many alternatives here delaying the forming of new games.

We'll do a subscription plan for a number of reasons. We feel not paying by turn means players are less likely to drop. We believe with a start-up fee with new games joined, Valhalla focusing more on Honor, a more robust community and player aids, and credits for completing games, we can decrease drops significantly, and of course we'll have standby positions. We can offer better value with lower overhead with a subscription.

We have six different service levels in mind - meaning a different monthly price affording different numbers of games and game types. We'll have full details later, but most likely, we'll start with just one or two service levels. Right now, we have the Warrior Service Level in mind for our first 30 players as they begin their Alamaze Classic experience. Warrior Level Service will allow for two Alamaze and two Fall of Rome games at a time.
