I’ve read some of this thread (there is quite a lot to read) and I believe that all we are doing is having a huge discussion about what the end result of scaling should be. Not to say we shouldn’t keep talking about this, outlining exactly what we want to be fixed and how is rather necessary, I personally have decided to show exactly WHY PG should care about this issue.
From what we know, pg pretty much cares solely about the $$$ they get from the game, and while I don’t like this anymore than anyone else, I’ve seen it from a few other companies, so I wouldn’t say the game is at a worse state than some of the other mobile games I’ve seen out there. Anyway, getting off topic here. So PG cares about money, and for that reason, they pretty much couldn’t give a shit if Odin took down all his vids. This is the problem, and the solution is outlining why they should care.
These are ideas I have given myself, as always these are forums and open for free discussion, meaning I would like for others to critique my ideas and present some of their own.
Odin knows quite a few people, as greatly shown by the number of subs he has and the number of posts on this thread. I could easily see about 1/5-1/10 of his dedicated watchers to quit the game over this, and pretty much all his watchers that arent insane spenders to boycott PG, and could probably get most of their clan to do so as well. These strikes would be extensive throughout the community, and would cause an absolutely enourmous loss of revenue for PG. This is why they should care, because most of us see no reason to spend money on a game if a heavy spender quit because he was progressively getting less and less for his money. And if you could convince most of your clan the same, that is a large loss of $$$ being spent on the games.
Another quick point: many players who spend money make it to the 300 wall, and because scaling isn’t a thing, they have to progressively spend more and more money on the game, more and more revenue for PG. However, most of them do quit around the 300 wall, and PG looses revenue from that. They would also loose revenue from the reasons I stated above, and while scaling would make it so higher levels only have to spend the same as lower levels (less $$$), it would keep these players from quitting, a huge gain in revenue.
Both of these points in perspective prove that PG would do better to increase their revenue and introduce scaling rather than have mass boycotts and an exiting of players.
As always, these forums are open for discussion and I would love to see anyone critique my points, or show their own. Also, I would like to say this wonderful discussion about what exactly scaling should be as an end product should not end simply because I stated why PG cares about scaling, because if we win and this is implemented, we want it to be exactly what we want, right?
