Let's talk about monetization
It is funny that no one has yet made a question about it here. So Let me start this discussion and therefore I have two questions for you:
- What would you pay for? (for example Skins)
- How much would you pay for this content at most?
The reason I started this discussion is that I have been watching a lot of videos about mym and a question that surfaced often was how and what will be monetized.
Now I wouldn't mind paying for skins and accessories but I also know that not everyone is of that opinion which made me want to start a discussion about it. (Be careful to not breach any of the NDA points.)
Some examples of, pay shops that allow you to unlock pay shop items for "free", include League of Legends with loot boxes, Dead by daylight with shards, and some MMOs via marketplaces where pay shop items can be sold.
Sadly all of them have their flaws, dbd locks some skins so they can't be bought with shards, Loot boxes are random, and can be considered gambling, and lastly, the marketplace is dependent on the community and whales.
The best thing probably would be to make skins/dlcs take a long time to unlock, here for we can take the example of DBDs unlocking killers/survivors via shards.
One last thing I am scared about is that pay shop content will not just pertain to skins, but just like dbd does it, also playable characters or in mym case traps and weapons. There is no proof yet of this which makes me a bit less worried.
And yes I know that it probably will be similar to dbds monetization still, but I have hope.
Now to get to my second point how much would I pay for skins/dlcs, well this heavily depends on what kind it is there are things I would pay 10-15 dollars for or others I would only want to spend 5 dollars max on.
But we also need to look at the economical growth of mym, so that it is worth it for bhrv to invest time, people, and money in it.
The maximum for me would be 20 dollars but then I would expect to get the same out of it as I get from buying one new game.
My lowest would be the 5 dollars maybe that would be then a not to integrate designed skin.
