Cutting the BS, here’s my initial idea/concept: Make coin shop games have a set timer so they don’t stay around forever until someone buys the key and rotate what’s available on a regular basis, more so than “every 2 weeks”.
This way it doesn’t feel like forever until something actually decent comes along and we’re also not stuck for two weeks looking at the same uninteresting gubbins. If a game doesn’t get all of its keys “sold” off by the time it rotates, just keep it in rotation. Make it come back a little while later and advertise it as limited stock. Sure it’ll look daft when it’s something no-one really wants, but it ensures that you can still sell off all the keys without letting them just sit there for ages like a sad puppy going “please buy me”.
That, and introduce a new format of adding games. A couple of cheapo games, a couple of mid price games, and one big price games. So, to use previous games as an example, one batch of games could be One Finger Death Punch & Reigns, Tower of Guns & Mini Metro and finally Dead Cells. More concrete tier based pricing would work in its favour I feel. Obviously, it creates an imbalance where certain ones will expire more quicker and thus it’ll be left in a situation where there’s like one game that no one wants - in that case, slap a timer on that bad boy and say it’ll go back into rotation in 3 days unless you hurry and get it now.
Obviously, the actual posting time frame is inaccurate since pobody’s nerfect etc, and that’s fine. I have no actual qualms with when you post them. I just feel like a combo of more frequent rotation + a wider choice/selection of games to choose from would make it actually worth bothering to collect all these coins in order to get something real nice from the store.
I’m fully prepared for someone to shoot me down on several different parts of this, pick away at this as much as you feel like. I’m not good at business stuff so the feasibility of this idea is not entirely in my realm of expertise. I just ask that you be gentle and explain to me why X idea wouldn’t work. Ta for reading
