Turn Frequency and Pricing
#34
My thoughts:

Pricing: matters very little to me! If I like the game I will pay whatever I must - no matter what my wife says. Per turn or subscription are both acceptable to me. Of course, players dropping a game is the very worst part of any turn based strategy game. Have we considered a per game start-up price on top of a very low subscription price? The subscription price would allow unlimited games for a monthly fee, but each game a player was placed in would have a fee attached. Then players could play in as many games as they wanted and there would be no incentive to drop any position. Additionally, the more games a player was involved in the less likely he would be to stop his subscription. Finally, the more games a player is involved in, the less problematic a lengthier turn around becomes.

Turn around time: I prefer a set 24 hour turn around time. Every night at midnight central time, or whatever, all the turns will process. If I recall correctly, there are standing orders in Alamaze. I suggest we allow players to complete a generic 10 orders or so that will automatically be issued if a turn is missed. I certainly understand that people want time to plan and plot with allies. Nevertheless, the longer turns take to process the more patience is required and if the goal is to increase the player base there is nothing better than the excitement of getting the next turn's results. [BTW, this is another good reason to allow unlimited gaming with a per game charge.] I understand that the chance of missing turns and issuing less than our most fervently thought out orders reduces the player's effectiveness, but that is counter-balanced by not having to wait three months to see our devious plots come to fruition.

Just my two cents...
