Hey guys! We have been discussing a restructure on our current pricing models. We have widdled it down to two different options which I think you guys might be excited about. Let me break down the two different options.
Beginner is the baseline plan currently known to most of you as “pay-as-you-go.” No monthly commitment and SkyCredits purchased this way would not expire. If you are on the Beginner package, SkyCredits would be used 2x faster than normal. 2 SkyCredits/min for Gamer and 4 SkyCredits/min for Pro. To offset this, you would receive twice as many SkyCredits when you purchase (3,000 instead of 1,500).
Prestige is the base monthly plan similar to what we have today. The main difference is an added 20 hours of gaming included. Prestige + is a new subscription plan billed annually. It ends up being cheaper per month with even more hours. Both Prestige and Prestige + would burn SkyCredits at the regular rate of 1 SkyCredit/min for Gamer and 2 SkyCredits/min for Pro. There would be no rollover SkyCredits on either of these monthly plans, but you would keep and be able to use any and all SkyCredits earned up until we make any change. New SkyCredits purchased would be used before any SkyCredits that would be grandfathered in.
Option B would introduce unlimited plans which many of you have asked for. The structure of these plans would be very different from what we have currently. All three options shown above are subscriptions.
Gamer plan would have 200 GB of storage, unlimited game time, but be limited to only being able to access the Gamer hardware package.
Pro plan would have 500 GB of storage, unlimited game time and be able to access both Pro and Gamer hardware packages.
Founders Club would be billed annually (whereas Gamer and Pro are monthly) and have 750 GB of storage, unlimited game time, and access to Pro and Gamer. We have toyed with the idea of reintroducing access to elite for these users if possible, but we’d have to drum up enough interest from you guys to see if it’s feasible. We haven’t tested as of yet, but throwing it out there for your feedback. The Founders Club members would also get additional perks beyond that of the VIP Gamer Club such as flair and closer access to the team.
In the case of both Option A and Option B, your current plans would be grandfathered in as long as you maintain your billing. The purpose of this post is to see what your feelings are on the matter and which of these two options would be most appealing.
Please vote on one of the options below and leave a comment with your thoughts. We really need your feedback!
- Option A
- Option B
