[April Fools] Introducing the Tango Token
« on: April 01, 2017, 12:19:52 am »
Today is the first day of Quarter 2. Are you excited?  We're here today bringing brand new changes and innovations from our administration to keep TangoWorldWide on top and continuously expanding. Over the last several months we sat down and analyzed TangoWorldWide... where we saw positive reinforcement, and where we needed to generate improvement. We've had two major takeaways where we need to improve: marketing and financial stability.


The Background
Through extensive analysis of our network we have decided to take marketing and financial stability head on. Today, we will introduce the Tango Token. We have determined that the more servers we add into our ecosystem the more the cost per player (CPP) drives up. This makes our generous donors have to contribute a higher dollar amount to support the same community. We have found this to be unfair in some ways... as the cost drives up, we need to find smarter solutions to bring in income to help combat the ever growing fees. If we leave the entire network up to only donations, we leave the fees to a select few users. The Tango Token will introduce a fluctuation compensation to battle the rising costs in an incentivized manner. Every user will be contributing to the big pot that pays for TangoWorldWide.


Desired CPP, using a donation:cost ratio as a fixed percentage
Here's a breakdown of the Cost Per Player (CPP).

Take the following equation:
n = 40, where n is the amount of current Official Servers
x = 10, where x is the number of server boxes we own
p = 350, where p is the number of average nightly users at peak
q = 1613, where q is the number of maximum potential server slots
v = ratio of donations to server costs in that month
d = v*.25, where d is the variable change in monthly donations

[(n * x) / 350] * .1613 - d *.1613

Using the statistical data over the last few months, we have a variation of the following amounts:
Code: [Select]
December    .0848309210857532034
January     .1301923093487553422
February    .1123983298581032949
March       .1030920994723650921

This allows us to drill down the cost and arrive at a desired Cost-Per-Player of about $.10 per day. Moving towards $.20 for the community to make profit and continuously expand. With this money we would be able to do country expansions once more at a regular pace and scale the network tremendously. Now it's about obtaining the money to fund such projects.

The Tango Token

Tango Tokens solve this issue! The Tango Token allows all users who actively play our servers to help pay for our servers. This spreads the cost across the network and doesn't leave the bill coming out of a select few's pockets.

How will it work?
Once the Tango Token is finally approved in the coming weeks, starting May 1st, 2017 you will need to purchase or earn Tango Tokens to play TangoWorldWide servers. Being a first time user, you will get 50 Tango Tokens. Each time you die you die in game, to spawn again it will cost you 1 token. This will help generate a new income stream for TangoWorldWide and successfully spread the cost over the entirety of the network.

How do I get tokens?
Getting tokens is EASY! Once this update goes live you can head over to the purchase page and buy a token stash for only $1. This will get you 250 tokens, or 250 lives in game. We estimate this will last users about 5 days, bringing your daily contribution to $.20 per day!

What if I cannot afford $1, or don't want to pay?
We thought of this... and have decided an alternative to earning Tango Tokens. We will be implementing an ad and survey venue option. Once you run out of tokens in game you will go into "limbo" where you cannot spawn until you get your next token, but you can still talk to users, etc. In this time you can type !earntokens in ANY server (CSGO, GMOD, ARK, TF2, etc) and either click through a survey on a product of your choice... (Coke, Pepsi, Laptop brands, cars, geographic location survey) or you can watch a 2 minute advertisement!



Please provide feedback!

As you SHOULD have noticed, this thread is a poll. Please vote if you like the idea, or hate it on the poll. Also, head over to the feedback form found here:
Should we add the Tango Token or keep things how they are? This is a community poll but right now we are set to live this update May 1st, 2017. If you do not like the update, it's your time to speak!

Very excited to see what the community says about the TangoToken.

It was very fun working on this with you and Alex. Looking forward to working on more projects like this in the future!

Im going to be straight up here and say this idea sounds awful.

I would never want to be limited to how long i can play on a server based on if i payed or not.

Also, will this affect bhop? You dont really die too much or at all on that server.

Each time you join it'd cost you 1 Tango Token.

Please make sure that you use the give feedback form to have your opinion counted.

Thanks!

This sounds like an awesome idea. Better people contribute by bringing skill to the server, while worse ones contribute by donations. Can't wait to see it in action!

Yeah I agree with Stalin, This is IMO not the anwser to making money especailly for Jailbreak where you die every round, you get 50 rounds for free and thats it? Not my favorite, quite honestly id stop playing after I ran out

Thought balon was crazy when he came up to me with this idea. But the pitch that he gave me really turned my head. I see a lot of potential here and I am ecstatic to see what the Tango Token will do to improve Tango!

I really dislike the idea personally coming from somebody who cannot donate and who does not wish to spend time doing tedious surveys to do something I could do for free somewhere else,  and I think it would negatively impact the server populations greatly because people do not want to pay to play community servers right when they join.

I think this would just turn off everyone who cannot donate and they will find a different community, personal opinion

I'm going to ignore the purchasing of the tokens, as that's not an option I'm going to consider. I've donated to TangoWorldWide in the past, but I will never endorse or participate in paying to play the servers.

The alternative methods (survey & ad) are an extreme turn-off, though I'm not going to dismiss them. I feel the implementation would decrease population, that is almost guaranteed. Especially considering such a long-term player, donator, and staff member (me!) would quit playing the servers. Maybe you'll see an increase in donations, but the stigma and reaction from everyone who isn't financially privileged or willing to commit extra time and effort to play will be negative.

I'll most likely give my opinion more in-depth on the feedback page, but it's summarized above. A better solution needs to be created to resolve this issue you've all found. This is likely not the best one.

:)

Turn away current and future members.

I get on to moderate the servers and make sure everything's going good. Guess I'm going to be taxed for helping the server by wasting 2 minutes of my life (multiple times). It'd be better to just have ads run in the background. The day this update comes out is the day I only sit in TS and watch movies with @miK :). That'd be the only thing keeping me in Tango honestly.

P.S. I voted "no" because I figured I'd just watch the ad and it's whatever. However, after thinking a little more, I'd stop playing. This is a disaster waiting to happen.
