agree with Simmen

the only thing we can do now is to make more events for the games, like Zombie, Kashira, or things on F4, to make people play and boost more.

As well as encourage new players to learn about the game through Wiki and AANC

Just wanna be clear here. Yes, we are in a slight downturn. Its not horrible yet, but if it doesn't turn around, it could be down the road.

As for tokens, I doubt we will be changing the prices, but we are considering added incentives. We have a few ideas how we are going to do this, but as of now nothing is concrete yet, and I am not at liberty to say more.

As for how we can actively address this (aside from what Michael announced obviously), I am pushing for CPA-lead type marketing again, only this time I am going to keep pushing until we can make it a reality.

CPA lead marketing is basically where we have a company come in with a specialized tool which allows you to complete surveys, or offers from corporations. We would share the profits from these surveys and offers with the company whom we sign on with in this program, and you as players would earn red tokens for completing them.

This allows free players who cannot or would not otherwise support, to also obtain red tokens in addition to those who can outright buy them, although the reds will be earned in small increments based on the value of the surveys & offers they complete. I believe this will be beneficial to all of us in that allowing non-paying players a way to get access to red tokens will give a way to sort of close the gap a little, as well as ensuring that the game stays free to play, and alive.

As I said, of course there will still likely be added incentives for those who buy tokens outright. They have kept the game alive to this point, and if we are to continue to thrive, of course we will rely on them as we move forward. The least we can do is make sure that they still get exclusive perks.

Anyway, have faith. Yes, there is a downturn, but we are not in danger of shutting down at this time, and with your help we can keep ourselves from having to suffer such woes!

Thank you to the supporters. We appreciate you, and will continue to improve on the game and our methods in all areas. We are still a relatively young company and many of us are still learning this market as we go, so of course there will be ups and downs. Thank you further, for weathering hard times with us and pulling together to help us when we need it!

I just gotta say, I like this:

Quote:
A) adding new features based on community requests.
B) finish spy system mechanics to be clear for all.
C) close some worlds to increase competition in existing worlds and to increase population of players per world.
D) re-assign some admins to different worlds to keep our admins fresh and more responsive.
E) Build an all-time achievement system (Career page) to record your victories and ranking automatically of each Era (instead of hall of fame screenshots)


Sounds very good :)

That might be the greatest thing I've ever heard. +500 for Seth.

More contests & events were already something we were considering. As a matter of fact, Mod Jake and I have been working to put together a static event team that could be on hand for any admin which may have need for them should they decide to host an event on their world.

I personally would love to see more events across the board. I believe it was a trend I started when I first signed on as an admin back on the old client, and have seen first hand how doing such things can be breath of fresh air for you guys as well as for us admins. More to come, dont fret ;)

Thanks for the +500. I love this idea too, and always have. I initially started pushing for these programs last year this month, but there were many other critical issues which needed addressed at the time, so it was shelved. Now, in light of a slight downturn in revenue, the benefits of such a thing for all of us are that much more apparent. I promise I will push as hard as I can to get this program brought online as soon as possible.

It should come to one as a surprise that revnue has droppd recently. The updates regarding boosting were obviously going to do this and unless the updates are reversed, I fear the revenue will continue to go down.

Humph. I hope new boosters come around, for BD is a game too great to be shutdown and I would LOVE to see it stay in the hands of it's founder company, Tacticsoft.. The CPA marketing sounds great, I can imagine the entire alliance on at the same time during war time trying to muster those last couple of tokens for a large E boost.. :lol: As long as the company we would be signing the contract with's idea of 'marketing' is not
Quote:
'Text BOOB to 192888 and receive BOOBs on your mobile (for the low cost of $7.80 / day ofc)'
and have more legit, 'safe' marketing strategies I think it could go well! :)

Michael, I wish you and the rest of Tacticsoft the very BEST of luck and really hope you can pull through and turn this game into a money maker.. Although, IF the worst case scenario does arise and Tacticsoft IS forced to closure, I request to Michael that he open sources the game, allowing it to continue in another's hands.. Again, good luck.. =/
