We would love to reward members that conbribute to WarLight. As you know we are a member funded indie game. So we are looking at creating features that members might want that go beyond free accounts. Of course, no advantanges in the game. :)

How about Execlusive Username with Membership?
If a user wanted GoldFinger as their username then the game would move all other users that have the username of GoldFinger to an alternate username, example GoldFinger2. Now when GoldFinger2 logs in next, he will be prompted to keep his new username or pick a new one for free.

Execlusive Forums for Members only?

See the last 10 past games of any WarLight player?

Promote Ladders on the promoted game section?

Third Type of Sound Notifications - Highly Critical Sounds?

Any other ideas?

Let us develop our own apps for Warlight (also, a windows phone app would be great). But a 3v3 ladder for members wouldn't hurt. Perhaps give them a few maps, or make the M less ugly. And make it red, because it looks like its from the 90's.

Exclusive username is a nice start...

I'll add some ideas to this post when I think of them.

Exclusive username: Imagine your name is Bob. Like 500 people would have to change their name. What if five of them are members?

Exclusive forums: I think forum blacklists would suit this better. Who would use the member-only forum? What is the need for a separate forum?

Last 10 games: No. Some players make 1v1 games to chat about real-life issues. We need some privacy.

Promote ladders: I like that idea. Especially for RT ladder.

Third type of sound notifications: That should be a feature for everyone.

Other ideas from me:

- Design your own Member logo.

- Make your own custom color (primary and secondary) (Red Blue Green 0-255 thing)

- Tieriary & Quadranary colors

- Comes with a 50 coin starter pack (Not the best idea but they are paying 35 dollars so giving them 50 cents isn't that bad)

- 50 player games

If members get 4-5 new perks, I will buy one for sure,

These are some great ideas, Mercer.

As far as some ideas, I've often thought about members getting things like a small monthly coin package. Maybe just 10 coins or something so that you can play 1-2 coin games.

Edit :

Holy crap Benjamin must be the hammer cuz he just nailed it!

Wait, did I get that right? If you actually do this, then a member can just steal your name, and you are forced to change your name then?
All other things sound great but the exclusive names would just suck.

You would get to rename yourself for free. And for your case, you could just do Cata.cauda.

My biggest issue is 2 people with the same name that are both members. How would that be decided, if at all? What's the point of exclusive usernames if they aren't exclusive?

Also, there would be that jerk that would change his name to Benjamin628 to tick me off.

umm. well maybe they will all get the option to change their name for free but they don't have to and they will all still be named Bob. (only the member ones though)

Thomas wouldn't add free gaming just get rid of that?

Thomas please stay on topic. Here's more I thought of:

- Different levels of members with more perks costing more money. Everything suggested this far is worth about the current cost of membership.

- YouTube integration for members only (Could be a decent thing to give to all of us)

- Special settings for members (Like Bomb card) one example would be the deployment limits suggested in a popular user voice.

- Customizable profile page (different colors and stuff)

- Name changes every 2 levels

- Ability to block last seen time (Incognito mode to an extent, I don't really like this one, just throwing it out)

- Level up faster (not that levels matter when you are member). A 150% modifier would not hurt.

When thinking of ideas, Quantity > Quality

for the highest lvl moderator for the forums? (but it would be like lvl 4 or 5 though.)

and cooler icons (preferably user made and voted for) ((a different one for each lvl of Membership))

What about a member ladder?

Something to the effect of:

Bronze - 15$ Current Member advantages.

Silver - 25$ low-mid tier things like YouTube intergrstion and customizable profile page.

Gold - 40$ Everything I suggested.

Giving away forum moderator is not related to membership and should not be. Fizzer can trust a non-member and distrust a member.

Cooler icons? Why don't you get to design your own?

Member ladder - 3v3 Europe should be a ladder everyone has access to. Here's my idea:

A member ladder should have a TON of templates, members can a Rate the template 1-10, and the template has to have a 6/10 to stay active. You can also deploy your own templates, but it has to be approved by a handful of moderators.

No, too much trouble and trolling potential. Plus what benjamin said.

+1 for this.

+1 to this too.

Third Type of Sound Notifications - Highly Critical Sounds?


Indifferent.

---

My suggestions:

-Boost in points (something like +10% or +20% if you are a member - it is reasonable)
-Making public tournaments with no coin prices nor rewards (meaning: tournaments anyone can easily join through the public tournament option, and without being specifically a coin tourney)
-.gifs for profile pictures
-Mail threads with more than 20 people (30 or 40 maybe?)
-Customisable/reasonable profile link*
-Being able to click more than one territory/bonus at a time when making custom scenarios for convenience (example: I want all of Africa to be given to a specific player on Medium Earth - make it so I can shift-click every bonus and then just add in the slot)
-Capacity to pick a slot when joining custom scenarios rather than having to decline and rejoin all the time

*Example: Mine is "https://www.warlight.net/Profile?p=8638136582?" - if such feature is added, I can change to "https://www.warlight.net/Profile?p=Zephyrum" or something like "https://www.warlight.net/Profile?p=Praise_Your_Lord".

I do not like the "layered membership" suggested by Ben, but good suggestions there. I particularly liked the faster name change and extra profile customization.

YouTube integration idea:

In the community tab, there is a sub-tab titled videos. There you can register your channel and people browsing (not just members can see the videos) can see the videos posted like the YouTube subscription feed.

@Zeph I don't like the idea of free public tournaments, those should be exculsive to live streams. Other than that I like all of your things, some should be for non-members though like slot selection and shift clicking territories for fasting scenario making

well. one thin about the Leveled membership is that some ppl who don't really want to pay $30 might be willing to pay $15.

also if you gave every member access to make public tournaments the open tournaments page would be Hectic again. but if you only gave it to like Gold or higher members there wouldn't be as many 600 players crappy tournaments.

oh and that Youtube thing +1

@Zeph I don't like the idea of free public tournaments, those should be exculsive to live streams.


I think it would be interesting, since basically at any time I only see one public tournament up and it takes ages to fill. This would be specially amazing for RT tournaments. Having to invite is a hassle.

some should be for non-members though like slot selection and shift clicking territories for fasting scenario making


Agreed to the shift click part, not much for the slot though. If you're into diplomacies you'd see that allowing people to just pick their slots would likely end in important players booted. Members are way less likely to get booted (after all, they are playing a game they love to the point of paying money for better enjoyment).

Last ten games -1

Last 10 games -1 as well


Why not? o.O

Nice solution Speck. It should be like the "games played with this player" feature.

Zeph, I think it is a + 1 with Specks solution. Players need their privacy.

I don't like Custom Membership icons. I feel that too many ppl would just have the same one anyway. and it wouldn't give whoever made that icon feel special also that would take a lot of space.

well i guess he would be proud he made a cool icon but People wouldn't be like "Look at that Icon!" they would be like "that one again?"

Anyone can see any match through the link, and in mighty's method people can still know what you play and such. Either way is fine by me, I'm indifferent about this.

As for custom icons, sounds fun, but that might be a hassle to make/come up with. >_<

@Speck maybe you can choose one of like 50 availible icons? Kind of like North Korean men can have one of 8 haircuts :P. Custom icons might take up too much space is probably correct.
