Let’s talk about the impact of the loss of the Egg Token Bonus. Note that all the below is based on the 100% bonus… 125% bonus people should get 1.25 everything listed.
The way I see it, there are several distinct areas that are affected:
A) The timer based bonus - Affected players only got the base values for every mission completed during the outage. Absolute max value would be 24 x 20, 6 x 40, and roughly 100, so 820 tokens per day, but that would involve no sleep, so I throw it out as unrealistic. It is however likely that those who invested in the bonus are those who expect to get a lot out of their purchase, so let’s say 12 x 20 for the hourly missions, 5 x 40 for the four hour missions, plus 80 for the daily mission. So, ~500 tokens per day. Now, multiply that by 2 if you have Elite, and then multiply by the balloon level bonus and you get the amount that each player is owed. So personally, with Elite plus a Garnet balloon bonus and affected for 5 days, anything under 6500 tokens for this particular category is pretty much wrong. It’s really hard to argue with this category as it’s straight losses from gameplay… No purchases involved, no adjustment for changes in playstyle because the bonus wasn’t available.
B) Lost opportunity to grind - This is one of the biggest perks of the bonus, but it’s also harder to quantify. Yes, people regularly grind tens of thousands of tokens, but they pay both 30 rubies per 40 or 80 tokens and time to finish the missions to do so. My proposal for this part is to allow each affected player to flat out buy some quantity of tokens for rubies for the 30 to (40 or 80) ratio. I leave it to PG to evaluate whether they want to cap the number of purchases each player can make, but killing the bonus killed this opportunity for us. And no, selling egg tokens for actual money does NOT make up for this, as players spend their in-game currency earned through events on progression, and it’s pretty awful that we had to skip that during a breeding event. This helps make up for this.
C) Prizes for the breeding event - Not sure how to quantify this, as players and teams missed out on prizes for THAT particular event. Maybe assume the next prize for all players/teams? Or just throw gold chests at it.
D) Prizes downstream - Again, really hard to quantify. If someone didn’t get the next evolution because they were affected, that means they potentially got fewer points in Kingdom Wars because their dragons were weaker than they should have been, or maybe they missed eggs for a builder hut upgrade and couldn’t score as well in Fort. This is, unfortunately, likely best handled through a “here’s some chests” solution.
