Suggestion - Port to Facebook

  • Suggestion - Port to Facebook

    I've been thinking about the game a lot lately and in that I have been thinking about how to get new players involved while solidifying the existing base. Best proposal I can come up with is a Facebook port - here's why:

    -Right now, users are limited to a bind to a platform. Facebook login would allow users to cross-platform play if their device needs changed. This would fix the whole toon swap in one big swoop.

    -Backup play system. People lose/break devices every day. An alternate method to play (even if only when at home near a computer) would give those users an outlet to remain active.

    -Revenue/Visibility. There are people who live in Facebook. Almost quite literally. The numbers of reach from there could be massive and the revenue from Facebucks would likely pay for the port all by itself. Yes there are already similar games there, but if the potentially new players discovered they could also play this one on their mobile, I could see adoption going through the roof. As of writing, I see 1M Downloads on Google Play. Other games I play that are cross-platform often have 15M downloads. (*cough*King*cough*) That is a big infusion of potential players and revenue.

    Please consider it. As I see it, this game has the potential to print money if certain things are handled the right way moving forward. Old players may even grudgingly return because now all their friends would keep sending social media invites. People who have voiced a distaste for the game recently don't have many options as far as clones of the game style to choose from on a mobile device. If you can clinch the game style and have the best platform available across multiple devices, I only see things getting better moving forward.

    UE Community - please share your feedback on this idea!

    Re: Suggestion - Port to Facebook

    This has been suggested before and I dont think they are interested in it, for me its would have me playing the game alot more than I already do as like already said lots live on facebook, I spoke to some players of another similar game which is dying and tried getting them to come over to this game and none wanted to, because of the reason already mentioned, they want it on a decent sized screen and dont like playing games on small screens and devices but were more than happy to join if it ever happened on a facebook platform, they really need to look at it again, even the old bragging posts where what I clicked on which got me to join this game in the first place otherwise I wouldn't of known about this game. It wouldn't surprise me if its purely on monetary reasons cause they want 100 percent of the cut on favor point sales and facebook do take a large chunk of the profit if favor points are being bought.

      Just to counter point - from a different game experience - facebook also open the doors for scripting and automation....
      While I know this exists currently, the capability for it to proliferate is exponentially larger when you expose the game as a web app.

      I am not saying I am against it - but do we really want thousands of accounts running scripts?

        This is why it was turned down in the past and never implemented ( and i hope will stay that way ).

          Not so bad - with bots being against ToS, and a detection system in play on web platform, this could be nipped in the bud at the first signs of trouble. I've gone over that type of code in the past. You can usually tell a script by either how quick they try to do things, or by the timing of the automation. A few million more players vs. some extra code to detect cheats wouldn't be a bad thing imo.

          If there were a cheat bounty in play to report working exploits (fp for a confirmed find of a new tool in the wild.) the numbers of potential abusers would go down to those who were coding their own private exploits. Over time though even the best will trip a flag in the log and with a zero tolerance approach I don't see cheaters getting very far.

            Then I shall pose this question to you - got a better idea to draw large numbers into the game?

            The community could really stand an infusion into the player base and if done correctly, the suggestion on the table has risk but is countered with a potential for a huge reward.

              I've played for a fairly long time now and from what I have seen, there hasn't been a very good record of enforcing the ToS.

              Estimating from past dramas, it would take years for them to acknowledge bots existed in game.

                CA ( PA's other game ) players know this story to well and it's happening till date unfortunately. This was one of the reasons some of us quit CA for UE.

                  I wish I knew the numbers on the games a bit better. I've known many to mention abandoned CA accounts in UE here. Perhaps if they closed that one down, offered UE credits for it (ala MU) and focused all dev on the one app, we might see some resources stretched less thin to make cheat policing possible. The flood of CA players might help boost UE too.

                  It all depends upon how much CA still pull in, really. But you're not the first to allude to issues causing attrition there.
