Monthly Champion


 Posted 9 days ago More by Randy I.

Playing the games are a big deal for a lot of people and as an attraction to new players something to fuel the competitive juices, or it COULD be. When one looks at the Leaderboard you know instantly that it is NOT competitive. There is NO incentive to compete hard on a monthly basis. I don't begrudge those that have been playing for years for having and easily maintaining their leads. However, from a business perspective, it is not realistic to think a new player can come in and compete on a month to month basis. No new game player will look at the leaderboard and not see the odds stacked heavily against them. As an example, in my 21 days in Poker I rank #3269. I was always in or near the Top 10. Cutting points in half every 30 days simply does not level the field. There is no incentive to buy more credits for higher scores. I propose: MONTHLY LEADERBOARD that resets at zero on the first day of the month. MONTHLY CHAMPIONSHIP BADGE for each game Expected Results: Incentive to compete on a level playing field. This will generate more revenue for SFI as players will be able to compete for the coveted MONTHLY CHAMPION BADGE! Validation Question to game players: [b]Would you likely buy more credits if it meant you had equal opportunity to be a monthly champion in your favorite game(s)? Yes or No[/b] [img]https://smallbiztrends.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/project-champion-850x476.jpg[/img] You could still keep the All-Time Leaderboard to reward those that have been playing for years.

Someone has been trying to lose a badge for years? It's not a solution. In Uber, for example, RT gets placement, the winner is upgraded. A monthly contest can be introduced, but not adding or changing existing characters that someone has acquired for years. Introduce such a competition, not endanger someone who built it for months. There are games that are being reset monthly, right? I agree with the maps that this can be done because there is a huge number of points, but not for other games

Hi Randy: I hope admin will seriously consider your suggestion. I have been here for 15 months and I see no reason to waste time, effort, and money on something that is so far out of reach. If there was a monthly badge, I would relish the chance to compete in it. Dog gone, you still have some good ideas left in you. Al Martens

When I think why not to suggest you. It would be interesting to see if the revenue would be bigger in order to make it all ... why not ... if they are the majority of this idea, and if the SFI team approves it, it's great. Sounds interesting when you think about it.

I would agree that SFI/TC could create some kind of a MONTHLY contest... like we have for Poker and Zackjack...Daily and Weekly Challenge.... But, those badges are without points... And I don't think that is what you want... quote: "You could still keep the All-Time Leaderboard to reward those that have been playing for years." Would like to understand how the "old players" could be rewarded for YEARS of using TCredits to play UBER, for example? Or PTP...or some other games... Leaderboard is just a LIST.... it might be just a " NOTHING" other than bragging... and, to be honest, I have spent years to GAIN my badges...so, please, forgive me if I am a little bit sensitive about them. Do you mean that the old players can still have the badges they have earned with BQ points attached to them?
