WitA Launch + Premium credit scheme LIVE NOW

Postby super_dipsy » 22 Jul 2019, 19:12

We will shortly be making War in the Americas available for general play. The rules and map can be seen here https://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=566&t=59957. This 10 player game looks really fun :D

As usual of course WitA is premium only, but if you aren't premium and want to play then there is a way....

...we are also introducing a purchase scheme for Premium Credits which allow you to play in a premium game even if you are not premium yourself. Credits will be available on the Go Premium page for $5 each, or you can buy a block of 7 for $15. So in other words if you are non-premium and you and your non-premium friends want to play 1900 or Versailles, for $15 you get 7 premium credits and off you go! (Remember to gift them to the other players using the My Account page) But if you want to play WitA, you'll need 10 credits of course, which will be one block of 7 plus 3 individual ones.


I will post again when the changes are up.

One further note. In the past we have restricted new variants to unranked until they had had a good few games go OK. However, this time we will make it available for ranked as well, on the basis that if a game is hit by a bug we can always unrank it if we have to.

One question about this. If I purchase 7 credits can I use them to play 7 different Premium games or is it only for 7 people to play one game?

Yuo can use them however you like. It is just a bulk buy discount. You could give them to 6 friends or use them yourself.

I've been waiting for the credit purchasing feature for a long time! As someone who wants to get friends into Versailles and/or 1900, this is incredible.

NOW LIVE!

If you have trouble with the credits, let me know. It is difficult to test because of the Paypal link, but we believe it is OK.
