I feel like we should find other ways to monetize the game without having Gleam Club affect guilds.
Maybe one free 2x1 portal that only works at max 5 blinksecs?
Anyone have other suggestions?
I don’t know. The problem is you’ve created a game with an economy as a focal point of the game, it’s literally one of the only ways to assert dominance in this game, so anything a developer might usually add to Gleam Club (Like a bonus in resources harvested, or inventory space) is going to get complaints.
Charging 40$ (30$ on sale) and in-game microtransactions just doesn’t look good, and you aren’t likely to get much lenience from the gaming community. If the game was free-to-play, these complaints wouldn’t likely have been nearly as prevalent.
