What's up dreamers!

 

Wanted to hit you with the second of our brand new development blogs! We are trying to become more transparent and open about our development as well as working more with you the players to design content that you want to see!

 

The coming update deals with donator ranks in game! With something new added for every rank, from new boosts and perks, to new areas and bosses! We like to think of this as the Oprah Winfrey update where every rank gets something!

 

We are hoping to hit you with the next update in the coming week or two

(however these things are hard to give an exact ETA)

Donator Update

The coming update has delved deep into the donator ranks and promises to offer something for every rank! I thought it would be nice to open the door on this process and show a little bit about why and how we add things in the way we do!

We started this update with a big picture idea, adding something new for every donator! From here we went through every rank and looked at what benefits they attained for their relative donations! We wanted to make sure that while we would add benefits for every rank we ensured that it was still balanced.

 

Somethings stuck out as glaringly obvious, such as sponsor+ getting static drop rates (Sponsor 5%, Executive 10% and Platinum Partners getting 15%) but there was no static changes for other donation ranks. We added these but kept them scaling at a similar rate for each rank. Somethings however we found by trying the perks out for ourselves, thinking about new ideas for perks and listening to your suggestions. We trailed the forums to read your ideas and were very grateful that a number of ideas for crazy new content came from you guys!

When we reviewed we found that some of the donator zones leaved a little to be desired and were very outdated. We had a good time going through them all and revamping them. Some zones will have new bosses. Some zones will have more bosses. Some zones will become customisable.

 

One of the things that dates the most quickly is shops. Shops on Dreamscape are a difficult thing to produce as with price fluctuations it can be difficult to make the rewards offered by the donator zones juicy without thereby driving the price down. We have revamped 4 of the donator zone shops and added in new items that we are hopeful will make killing in the zones more worthwhile! Including some juicy new customs that are only obtainable through the donator shops!

 

One of the things we hear time and time again is the desire for more donator rank based bosses! Gio's Hoe or the donator boss is a very popular utility boss for donator + and the platinum dragon a similar juicy perk of Platinum Partnership however other ranks do not have access to relevant bosses at each rank. As such we decided to add in 4 tiers of bosses for Extreme donator-Platinum Partner that scales in drops with the rank (Don't worry, super donators are getting access to 5 brand new npc's and donators are getting a new PVM area too).

 

When looking for a new boss, we try to look at what is already popular and how we can make it even better. It is clear to see that the average Dreamers favourite animal is... the Penguin and so we have made 4 new custom penguin themed bosses!
