How NG can make more money and make us happy as well

Next Games, you are losing money! You want to earn more and make the players happier at the same time? Then here is how to do it!

Consider the following dramatized scenario: A player wants to get challenge stars to bring honor and glory to his guild. Unfortunately he has a real life and is only able to play two hours per day. As the gas storage is too small to cover continues playing for two hours, he is willing to spend gold for gas. But after six missions he realizes that the mission cooldown prevents him from playing, so he won't spend gold and has to wait. After the challenge ends he realizes that he can't deliver enough stars for his guild and has to leave. Out of frustration he stops playing at all.

Isn't the solution obvious? Remove the mission cooldown! Give us more flexibility and a lot of players will spend more money! What is the purpose of the cooldown anyway? I can only think of preventing players from getting too many stars in a mission. But you don't need a cooldown for that. Just block a mission if the star count exceeds a given limit, maybe 120 stars.

Now consider another scenario: Again we have a player with a real life. He plays during his lunch break at work and has enough time for one more mission. He would like to play, but he has not enough gas. He is willing to spend gold for gas, but he realizes that he would have to pay for a full tank! He wonders why he should pay more than 30 gold to fill his tank, even though he only needs a few gas to play the mission. Most of the gold would be wasted as he would have a full tank anyway after work. So he doesn't spend the gold and is bored for the rest of his lunch break.

Isn't the solution obvious again? Allow us to buy only the amount of gas that we need for the next mission! Players will hesitate less to spend gold for gas if the total amount is lower and no gas is wasted. In the aftermath players will spend more gold! You allow us to upgrade a building with gold without buying full supplies. You allow us to upgrade a survivor with gold without buying full XP. Why don't you allow us to buy gas for a mission without buying a full tank?

    Boy! Do I ever agree with that! I had a RL issue, was sick all day on last chlg, first day. Was trying to catch up, & that's exactly my thoughts! Why an hour cool down ? If they put it back to 30 min, ppl would definitely buy more gas! They r morons! TY ! I have wondered this same thing so many times! ;) ( but do they ever listen? ) Noooooooo!

    I made few threads weeks ago about possibility to buy desire amount of gas and still don't understand why it isn't in game yet...
    Cooldown is stupid and I don't understand purpose of it. It's like shoot in foot. You only can make a profit when ppl playing.. Waiting 1hr isn't playing...

    I wish to clarify my vote: I agree with the concept & points you have proposed. But, realistically I don't think the powers-that-be will just eliminate cooldown-timers under assumption it'll guarantee more revenue. Instead, I think it may potentially be more persuasive to propose that cooldowns are still in effect, BUT, allowing players the option to spend gold to rid the cooldown timers for each mission if they want. The option to purchase how much fuel at pro-rated price would be good too, rather than auto full-tank for gold.

    Total agreement here! I never understood the purpose of the cool down, Im curious to what the reason is? I know I would buy the pay only for the gas you need constantly to finish a round in challenge.

    How about a shortened cool-down period? For some reason I thought that the cool-down period was to encourage people to "forget" the map. If they played it again right away, they would know where all of the fatties are hiding. We know anyway . . .

    30 min was perfect cooldown in my opinion....
