New to Chrono.gg (as a whole, never used the site to buy games) and new to the community as well. I’ve been fumbling around the actual website and looking around some post in the forums (specifically the feedback category) and if it is okay, I would like to give my own two cents
Before I actually go to the feedback, I would just like to say thank you for implementing the coins system, and that it is a very good idea
So the (actual feedback):
Show “My Account” instead of Account Email - Now call me a paranoid but I think that aside from the actual security features of the site, not showing the email of the user on the upper right corner is very good first line of defense. This is because the assumption that your Chrono.gg email account is the one that you also use for social networking sites like Facebook or Twitter can be a correct one. We don’t necessarily want to give people who shoulder surf are quick peek at our email even if it isn’t the one we use for anything that is linked with personal information. The best “solution” that I cant think of is changing the email to “My Account” and put the email as one of the dropdown items when you hover on the “My Account” text.
Better Description in the Question Mark of Daily Rewards - Now call me an idiot but on the first glance, the description that is put on the question mark for Daily Rewards didn’t really help explain stuff. Now, I’m not a web developer (front-end or back-end) but I’m assuming that the question mark is for the user to know something. I was thinking along the lines of “Below shows the amount of coins you can earn for the next upcoming sales. Sales end every day at 9AM Pacific”. What I’ve put, can of course, be written and formatted better into a more concise state.
EVERYTHING UNDER THIS IS PURELY SUBJECTIVE AND CAN BE OR NOT BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY
Displaying an Actual Countdown Timer - I’m assuming this isn’t being done because the website has it’s own text for sales that have ended (eg. This sale has ended 2 minutes ago - I’m sorry if this isn’t the exact thing, I accidentally refreshed the site and as of this post, I’m currently looking at the next sale which is “Screeps”) however for people like me who doesn’t use Pacific Time most of the time, I assume most of us have to do a quick google search and convert the time after said search. I think it would be easier if a countdown timer is shown instead/
More Information for the Game on Sale (Instead of Linking to the Steam Website) - Now I’m not a marketing guy but I think it would be better if you;ve put some more information about the game WHILE linking to the Steam Page. This is so that the user doesn’t have to do an extra click just to see information about the game. I believe this isn’t being done because I think I’ve read somewhere that it’s believed that the Steam Page will probably do a better job explaining the game while showcasing videos and pictures better. This could be a good thing though.
More Game Screenshots - Same as above.
Show the Amount of Keys Left in the Coin Shop - Now I assume this isn’t being done due to reasons that can’t be disclosed to the public but this could be a really good thing for end users. If ever that this would be implemented, I proposed an “X out of Y keys remaining” format.
More Information About the Games in the Coin Shop - Currently, when you check on a game in the Coin Shop, it gives a very very brief description of the game (that personally, I believe is lacking). My reasons are the same with point 2.
Add a “How Long the Games in the Coin Shop will be for Sale” - I’ve been searching around the forums and I’ve failed to see a post explaining how long games will be on the coin shop. If there is one, please feel free to link it to me since it will be a good read. This is mostly a UI think for the coin shop since I’m assuming that if the games on the Coin Shop are about to be changed for a new set, you guys will be announcing the change here in the forums. The UI info could be a good thing though.
I hope you find the feedback (and even the very very very subjective ones) useful!
EDIT: These are all front-end feedback. I have yet to buy a game through Chrono.gg so I don’t know how the site looks or works from those end.
