    This, I don't mind them, but don't make them too often.


    Part of Gamescampus RF's problem was constant spenders.

    Once a month seems fair, every month has a theme to base it on, like easter, Halloween, Valentine's, etc.

    Twice a month, 1 with each update. Gives people incentive for buying the new shop items.
    As long as they make some carats then this will be good.

    Yes , I want a weekly spender.
    People don't have to participate in them but the real people who actually spend do.

    Honestly, having obe eith each update just makes them less special.

    Part of the appeal to spenders should be the unknown time frame, it's like a surprise present.

    It's like having Christmas every week, it gets old

    Also two weeks seems too short a duration for the event, not enough time to spend.

    Yas Gourdy. Finally a reason to spend money and easy profit for Redfox.

    How Often Should Spenders Occur?
    Bi-weekly and only on the week of updates.

    Who Are The Spender Events For?
    Everyone. Don't forget to include the carat spenders as well. Anything over 50k+ should warrant at least 2 permanent items.

    Remember that we're spending our money.
    We don't want timed items.


    Here are some threads to check out.

    Finally an end to the repetitive asking...

    Do not put everything good that was suggested here all at once. One at a time please.

    If you're going to do spenders, ALWAYS include a carat one as well.

    Prizes should be no higher than $50 (75000 carats) for individual items, $100 (150000 carats) for set prizes.

    ----

    EDIT :

    Change it up as well. Sometimes make it for the weekend, sometimes a week, two weeks, month.. etc.

    Two spenders a month is fine. Anything more is excessive. Seems the most wanted items right now are from pieces of the RaVeN set. I think players want spenders so much because there really hasn't been a more efficient way of getting rare / event items in the past. So if you could think of something outside the box that would be cool too. You have to be careful with spenders. After a while you'll have nothing to give out that hasn't been given already.

    Yes. Spender events are great for your business and us players alike. Make sure to allow time between each, though. As previously stated, GamesCampus would hold them every weekend. This was a mistake. They also constantly threw in the same rares, rares that had nothing to do with the current seasons (ie: Black Friday item for Independence Day), and priced them horribly. Please, do your research and learn from GamesCampus' mistakes.

    @Yusuke and I put together a list of tiers you can base your spender events off of. This can be found here.

    Personal Requests
    • W11 Cleats (All colors)
    • Sinister Hair (Male) [Was a M/F hair for 6 years and for some reason was changed to F only 3 years ago]
    • Keep tournament/special event prizes out (Gladiator Set, Fashionista Title, Scroll Master titles, Director Set)
    • Great Thief Gloves/Mask (Permanent)
    • Lollipop (Permanent)
