Yeah, sounds legit!
If this were introduced it would annoy me...
I had a cool idea that for HoN's monetization scheme:
What if they sold packages that for different time spans allowed you to earn gold coins instead of silver for playing? One thing i don't like about the gold coin system it is much more rewarding for me to earn a new avatar then to buy one and I think this could be a fun way to alleviate this problem.
They could sell packages that for a day, a week, or for the next month, would reward all your games with gold instead of silver. If they sold them at a price where you'd have to play a decent amount for it to be cheaper then buying a package but to make it possible to do so, it would provide some element of gaming to how you buy items and not discourage the sale of their regular packages.
This system encourages more playing and is much more rewarding then simply buying the gold coins straight up. It also allows you to just buy the day package if you only need a few gold coins so you can earn all you need for the item you want or to buy a big package and try to play hard to earn your monies worth.
I'm not entirely sure this was the right place to post this but it seemed most appropriate sorry if it was wrong.
