There’s been a lot of discussion in the #pu movement about how whales and big spenders can impact Scopely’s bottom line until change is implemented.
I’d like to start a discussion on what low spenders and f2p players can do.
For starters, we need to boycott offers. Scopely and Tapjoy don’t give gold out of the goodness of their hearts. How it works is this:
Game of War Clone XV pays $5 per referral to download and player conversion.
Tapjoy keeps $2, Scopely gets $3, and you get 2000 gold.
Anime Girl Softcore Game pays $.04 per ad view. You watch the ad. Tapjoy gets a penny, scopely gets 3 cents, and you get 3 gold. This sounds like nothing, until you realize thousands of players were watch a dozen ads a day for years.
The point is, if we’re really trying to vote with our wallets, we need to stop generating referral income for these clowns too.
