Please remember that what we are doing right now is a test.
Some people have been requesting a statement on our plan for this, but there is none. Our plan is to run this test and see how it works out before thinking what this could mean for the future.
This thread is also getting a bit too long and things are starting to go in circles a bit, so please prioritize using agree and disagree on previous posts rather than repeating what has already been said. This way your feedback will be much easier to process. Thank you!
And as always. We appreciate your passion for this 7 year old game, it's invaluable to us. But please try to keep a constructive tone, thank you!
I wrote a post couple hours ago but since you are running a test, here is a basic free telemetry for you
- I purchased EU IV on 7 Apr, 2017 @ 10:14am PDT. I have 37 hours of play time.
- Crusader Kings II was part of the purchase. I have 13 hours of play time
- I had no interest on CK II those days so it was laying down on my Steam backlog.
Like a month ago i had an urge to give CK II a chance. Damn i have so much fun and decided to give some $$$ or £££ on DLC's. Just my luck, you decided a 2020 Lunar New Year Sale discount on DLC's.
Let's have a look:
White ones are in my wishlist. Total value is 154,50 TL (~26.02 USD / ~23.54 €)
I can and will afford those DLC's. If these were included on a monthly subscription, i would never ever think about giving a dime.
We evolved from "hunter-gatherer" human societies in terms of antropology. So we hunt for ideal things and gather them.
- In this screenshot, my brain says: "I hunt for ideal price, these are ideal prices. I'm going to gather them. Even i play it or not".
- If these were on your desired subscription model, my brain would say: "These are not yours, you just borrowed them. So why are you paying monthly for a game you play occasionally?"
Long story short: just listen to your core human user base alongside your fancy and trendy telemetry stuff.
