Day 1,974, 02:43 by schofeild

Hello all,

As you may have noticed, we have another sale on our hands. The most effective way to use this opportunity is to upgrade your training grounds.
Your strengh will increase faster, and you will gain more gold through the super soldier, battle hero and true patriot achievments.

Now you may find yourself saying: "Well that all sounds fine and dandy, but gee, I just don't have the gold"
If this is you I'm glad your reading this.



I released a previous article which detailed a loan system that would encourage older players to lend newer players gold for this very reason.

However, the one major response I recieved from that article, was that the older players weren't sure that they would have the money paid back - interest or not.
This is where you newer players step in. I need you to convince the players that you know that you are in it for the long haul. Do what you must, provide contact outside the game - just prove that you are trustworthy.

Older players, dont get me wrong. I am not encouraging you to just loan your gold away willy nilly. Be discerning, but if someone does convince you they are in for a while, then I encourage you to take that step and help the other player out. It can mean a huge boost from an early stage.

As Aussies we have an issue with player retention. We need to be doing what we can to keep new players interested and giving them a hope. Communicate with them - partner with them.
NaN members too, we all suffer from the same issues. Encourage your younger players and show your support (but get them to put in the effort to prove themselves)

I believe that this is important and so I would ask that you let as many new players see this as possible. If you agree with this, or think others may benifit from this, shout the article and considder whether you can afford to help another out.

If you feel like you might be able to lend gold, please post below so that people can get in touch with you

TTFN,
The Scar

It depends what you concider a new player. Many players follow the missions and upgrade factories. The ROI of factories is poor right now.

Upgrading the free training ground 1 times gets a player 5 extra gold in 50 days. = .1 gold extra per day = $23 per day.

You can dissolve everything but the base food factory. I just dissolved my 3 grain farms for $750 each. That is about 9 gold. Each farm was making about $2 per day. Right there players can turn $6 a day from raw food into $23 per day in extra SS.

Use the market to trade AUD for gold. Current rate is 242 aud for one gold. You can buy 10 gold per day.
