VIP Discounts...

Hi,

VIP is currently worth it for a little while until you collect everything then there is little reason to keep it going.
And it is also frustrating to spend so much on VIP and then be asked to pay a _lot_ extra for things like new planeswalkers or the Nantuko Monastery.

What I would like is that the levels of VIP add an extra discount to EVERYTHING including money prices.

The first 2 types of VIP could give 5% discount plus your tier. (which is always 1 for the first one) so someone with the 2nd VIP sub who'd gotten to tier 4 would have a 9% discount off everything.
The highest VIP should give 10% discount plus your tier. Yes, at it's highest, after 1 full year of subscribing that'd be 22% off everything including cash prices, but think about how much guaranteed money you are getting for that year.

This would encourage people to stay subscribed even when they aren't getting an immediate benefit. (Like me right now. I have VIP but haven't been able to afford some of the current deals even though I wanted them too. I could afford Ayula but not Nantuko or Wrenn.)

I think this would help both the company and the players in the long run.


Thanks,
Kinesia

    Currently (for a while) I've been in the position where VIP isn't giving me much, I have over 40 boosters that aren't worth opening till new sets rotate for example.

    Meanwhile new planeswalkers and exclusives get released and cost the full amount and I could be spending my money on that instead of VIP. I have only this _limited_ amount I can spend on the game, but I'm forced into a decision of how to spend it.

    What _you_ really want is for VIP to be a no-brainer and the exclusives and PWs to want me to stretch (just a little bit!) to put slightly more money in.

    So... My suggestion to keep people on VIP and to keep a bit of money coming in on top is...

    At VIP tier 5+ you get a 20% discount on ALL items in the store of all currency types including real money.
    At VIP tier 10+ this becomes a 50% discount.

    This becomes a real driver to get to VIP tier 10 which guarantees you longterm income, but drops the prices of extra stuff enough to tempt me to buy them still.

    I think it's better for both customers _and_ the company than the current arrangement.

    My current choice situation of keep VIP _or_ buy PWs is very bad for everyone in the longrun.

    @Brigby ; this is an older post so I wanted to draw your attention to it directly so it doesn't get lost behind the scenes.


    Thanks,
