Hello fellow Groupees, it’s your friendly Slug. Last week, we started to use the Reserve this bundle function or preorder if you will. I have read what people are writing, so while many of you folks seems to like it, there are some folks out there who do not, and I think there is some misconception to this idea as well, so I wanted to share with everyone what our thinking is.
First off, one of the biggest motivations for us in doing this is to create something fun. The idea is to provide an element of surprise and discovery. Amidst all the noise and haste of life, how often do we even have the time and attention to experience a surprise? Certainly, with all the other bundles out there, it seems to us that the whole experience has become rather ho-hum, and we REALLY don’t want to be simply purveyors of cheap games.
Next, if you don’t want to do this, please don’t. You will still have an opportunity to get our bundles at a great price and earn all the bonuses. While it is true that we discount the bundle to those willing to buy during preorder, we do understand that many folks may not wish to take a leap of faith, so please only buy if the deal is right for you. As an aside, we will continue to use our build a bundle option on most bundles, which is to say we’re all about choice!
Finally, we have chosen to do away with the Dollar Day concept, and so the Preorder idea is, in part, a different way to offer our bundles at an even better price, for those interested in the concept. Based on our data, the Dollar Days concept was not used in the way intended, and that is the reason we are discontinuing it. We like Preorder much better and are excited, too, for our Trading Coin concept, which we’ll be rolling out more fully in the coming weeks.
We do want to reward our loyal community members and do not worry if Preorder is not for you, we have other ways to keep you engaged and happy!
