FEEDBACK: Next Campaign Announcement: Caregivers!

DaevDaev ✭✭
I usually just lurk around here but I'd like to give some feedback on this please.

I gotta say it hits a bit of a sour note personally. Given everything going on in the world, there are a lot of games - including Timelines - giving away some free stuff. Some little boosts and such things. That's great, it's a reasonably minor nice thing to do for people in tough times and probably doesn't cost the various companies much (especially when we are talking virtual goods).

BUT.... I'm a little surprised see an event run themed around Caregivers which is monetised and not see an announcement that some of the proceeds are going to support an organisation/charity in the field.

Now, I think this is just badly named. It's actually about "parents" and "parental figures", I think WR/TP could have found a better name and thought this through just a little better.

Having it as "Caregivers" and making money from it at the moment... as I say hits a bit of a sour note for me.

:(

    I am not sure that expecting them to donate to charity is really relevant to the campaign announcement.

    Honestly, if you feel that way you should send your money direct to charity and skip the skimming from the middle man.

    But since this is a feedback thread on the campaign announcement, its a joke to put such pitiful crew as the campaign premium track 5*. I mean seriously, a tier 6 on its way to tier irrelevant. Make your arguments about the other rewards still being worth $10 if you want, but honestly the premium reward should always be tier 4 minimum, tier 3 maximum.

    Just another poor offer from a stream of poor offers over the past two months.

    Linking back to the op, if they said premium campaign purchase proceeds would go to charity, made the 5* dark empath troi, and charged 19.99, they would sell like hotcakes.

    I do agree they are not caregivers in the true sense of the word. Perhaps a new 4 or 5 star Nurse Ogawa or something along those lines would have fit the title better. To up the price and expect people to pay more with some of it donated to charity is a bit presumptuous on where people’s money is going but if they said hey, you have the option to pay $15 of $20 with that extra going to charity that would be more diplomatic. I personally don’t like to be forced into giving to charity as I am very specific on what I donate to. To force me to pony up versus being asked would leave a sour taste in my mouth.

    There's a bit of hate for the Bashirs on discord. While I'm meh on them as a character at 4* they'll be the 5th best DIP base I have so I'm happy enough.

    I don't really get the theme. When I think of a Caregiver I think of someone caring, or a Doctor. Maybe the Bashits were Doctors but they didn't seem very caring to me. I should really rewatch the episode.

    I would even be ok with being "forced" but only if I can choose the charity my money goes to which would for example for me never be an American organization, but this would be likely with an American company. So I am glad they did not come up with such an idea.
