Relaxing Costs due to Covid 19

Good day

I would like to suggest that Elvenar relax their cost of packages, coins and any other item(s) for the month of June by 50%. Since the world has been in turmoil with

Covid 19 a lot of people have come to Elvenar for comfort where they can de stress and not have to worry about being sick or getting sick. So if you do this I am sure

people will buy your goods. Appreciate any support or comments

A nice idea, given that many of us are struggling a little under the current lockdown's and would make me consider a purchase once in a while.

We all want that fellas, definitely... but I humbly think it is not right to use the COVID-19 issue for this. If someone is in financial stress, I assure you the last thing they will think is buying diamonds. Or even keeping the internet playing this game. I am lucky my business did not suffer a bit, but I know some distressed people, that are trying to buy bread (the one you eat, not the one you craft in your WSs).

I thought they would release something, but at the same time, they do not have to, it is not an essential need. In fact, I suspect the May event came due to the confinement, as it came super fast following valentine's and its FA.

Maybe they could give us "Quarantine Unicorn", 2x1 as usual, and maybe with double the stats than the Dark Unicorn. Make it a Legendary Summonable building, and a 2x1 must-have hehe due efficiency per square. Making it an awesome non-road 2x1 high culture pop building (still INNO might win as it will pull off some RRs as people will want to keep it.)

And maybe make it move... so much drill with the Unicorns around Enar, but they are all as solid and dead as tombstones. Honor your own unicorns INNO hehe.

Good day AstralSoul

I have read your reply, the suggestion is for those people who can buy diamonds, it NOT about people who are financially strapped. It was never about anyone who cannot afford to buy diamonds but for the many that do, it is about getting some relief for this group of folks. This comment is NOT about taking away anyone's meals or bread, etc. just for those who can afford to buy diamonds. As for using Covid-19 many people around the world are using Covid for fund raising or other issues, I just want to use it to try to help others get some discounts. Hopefully with enough comments, Inno will give us a break

hello @ukman, It is a good thing to put suggestions forward, some may appeal to one person and not to another. All ideas & suggestions are welcome in this game. But that does not mean all are implemented or implementable. Do not get into fisticuffs over this, gentlemen.

@ukman the game itself is a relief, without the need of diamonds.

It helped me to overcome anxiety due to over-working myself... I needed no diamonds, as I did not even know how to use them. People with be relieved, and happy to play the game, they will worry for diamonds in several weeks.

Maybe, as I type this, they could gift that free building, but without buying diamonds, but then, a lot of people will complain because they had to pay for it.

In my business, I do not use the word COVID-19 nor coronavirus, and I have a way for people to receive free help, and relief, totally independent of all. Maybe INNO did not want to look like they make a business out of the COVID-19, idk, it is not my business, I am a client/player.

It is complicated, I understand. We have the classic of getting players to like premium and buy in the future, but we do not know INNO's numbers. I would think that something special in the game would be nice, but they have to code that, and that takes a lot of time, especially if there is a conflict in the code... a single ";" missing can steal hours from you. Even with all the colors, and all (if you code you know). It is not fair for INNO neither to do extra work.

Do you know what could have INNO actually done nicely? Maybe make an "I-can-say-the-name-of-the-game Day" That day, there were massive buffs.

I saw the buff that is coming due the anniversary in this game in beta. Maybe for the entire confinement, they could have boosted 200% of all our manufacturers. And maybe "accelerate" the times (1h instead of 3), building times reduced 20% for example, etc. That is fairly easy to code, and it can be recycled.

It will mean a faster building, faster building waiting time, faster scouting, and faster all. More playtime and it could be fairly easy. Another option is to make (it might be easy to change, depending on the code of this game) to make a "speedrun server", where everything is accelerated like 500%, productions are tripled, and (army as it had war), was more powerful, etc. Maybe the server lasted four months. Something like that maybe was a good idea, but maybe it is also out of INNOs possibilities, we do not know that.

This is such a good idea we have been with this game through some bad times maybe Inno could recognise this and give us something back????????

I thought they would.

I can't agree with the diamond thing, but indeed they could have added something like that, if specially as you say @Timneh , they have the code already:

- 300% times faster construction times.
- 200% production T1-T6, portals.
- Reduce 50% wait times (spire, tournament, AW productions, and culture buildings that produce stuff.)
- One-hour option. That will be excellent, especially for the new players trying to find relief joining this game :)

A package like this would cost nothing to INNO, everybody wins here, and it would help with the relief as @ukman said.

As i said it is a long time since we saw those boosts. They had them for both WS and manufactories and all productions were reduced by 2/3 for 1 day. I'm not sure if they didn't also have a boost to increase production amounts on standard production times as well.
 
seems like a very selfish request to me--using a pandemic to beg for free boosts for a game that you don't need to play when the folks at Inno have families to feed.
sounds like socialists trying to exploit capitalism.

Thank you, finally one that agrees with me, and does not hate me/ignore me hehehe.

As I said, people worries about buying real-life bread, versus making it in the game faster :)

I agree that covid should not be a reason to reduce prices, prices should decrease for buisness reasons.
Inno-games is also struggling with covid just like many other companies.

I am not sure that slashing there income is a wise decision unless there is a way to make up for that loss of income.
On (i think) beta they have also noted that the covid makes Q&A more difficult and as a result there are more problems in game than they would like. and communication lines are a lot longer atm as everyone works from home. possibly increasing costs or limit production as a result

So I am no fan of reducing the prices of diamonds.

I see no point in this request.
If you spend more time on the game now because of covid, I suggest you use the time productively and learn a couple new tricks rather than spending your now lower income on diamonds. That will give you a higher boost in efficiency and serve you better for the future.
If you have the cash to support the game, do it, no need to use a real life crisis as an excuse to get a benefit.
 
I really do take peoples point about not using the Pandemic to get freebies I think Ukmans point wasn't really like that but maybe I am just seeing the good in people and getting it wrong.
