MMOs Are Ruining Kongregate...
Facebook game =/= Mmo lol
Browserbased Mmos are rare and hard to make cause a true good game needs a good team of developers/lots of players/lots of servers plus mmo is a different type of game – people dedicate months/years to.
Subscribtion is the other alternative but it doesn’t work out as well as it takes longer for the user to decide to pay. (I played Runescape for 5 months before paying)
Demo mode but then that wouldn’t have as much badge possibility
#of plays and add revenue. With energy system it inflates the number of plays so high. I mean i may play a tower defense game 3 hrs or more in one sitting and then not really add to the number of plays til another 3hr session. But I probably added many plays to Legacy of a Thousand suns playing 2-5 minutes at a time trying to get the badge still have 2m more damage to go lol….
Anyway look up kongregate virtual goods strategy- yes they are pay 2 win but the statistics says less than 2% and in many cases less than .5% of users pay but the ones that do pay are puttin lots of money in some 100+ dollars.
Though I wish some games didn’t have auto 1/5 because they have kreds or are featured. -Runespell Saga is a pro game but I bet people rate it down because it sells faster exp and silver (or maybe im just wierd. Poker+solitare+levelingup+combat+3 star system)
But yea mafia wars types games are all over fb and they require logging in every day! I prefer playing whenever I want and as long as I want. Maybe 1hr one day 12hrs other days lol.
