[GAME] Coven Expansion - Frequently Asked Questions

Postby shelboo » Tue Jun 06, 2017 6:49 pm

On June 6th of 2017, The Coven expansion was released for Steam. On July 20th, the game was released for the browser version. This expansion includes 15 new roles (plus 1 mystery role), a new faction known as the Coven, and new rotating game modes.


Frequently Asked Questions

1) How can I purchase the Coven expansion and how much does it cost?

Steam

Players may purchase the expansion for $5.00 USD on Steam. Players must own the base game on Steam in order to be able to play the Coven expansion. Once the player owns both, has synced their account to Steam, and has logged into the Steam version of the game, the player will be able to freely play the Coven expansion on Steam and also on the browser.

Browser

Players may purchase the expansion for $5.00 USD on for the browser version. Players must own Web Premium in order to be able to purchase and play the Coven expansion.

How to purchase the browser version:

  • Log into the game with the account you wish to own the expansion
  • Enter the game's "Shop"
  • Select the "ACCOUNT" tab
  • Select "Info" for the Coven Expansion
  • A menu will display "UPGRADE YOUR ACCOUNT"
  • Under "WEB PREMIUM", select "MORE INFO"
  • Select "WEB PREMIUM + COVEN EXPANSION", unless you already own Web Premium, in which you'd select "COVEN EXPANSION" instead
  • You will be re-directed to a site with payment options
  • Complete the payment


Mobile
  • Log into the game with the account you wish to own the expansion.
  • On the first slide, there's a Mobile Premium + Coven Expansion. If you don't already own Mobile Premium, but have a full account, you can buy both for $9.99 USD, or just Coven for $4.99 USD.
  • You will be asked to put in your mobile app-store information. Please confirm the purchase, and you'll be all set.
NOTE: If you do not own the full game on another platform (meaning you're a new user), in order to get Coven you will have to purchase both Mobile Premium and Coven in order to play Coven (the $9.99 USD option) you will not be able to play Coven if you don't own Mobile Premium.

2) Can I play as or with these new roles if I don't own the expansion?

These new roles are only playable in the expansion and cannot be played with in the traditional version of Town of Salem.


3) When do the rotating game modes switch out?

These game modes usually swap out every Thursday at 1:00am CST. There may sometimes be a delay.


4) Will players be able to try out the Coven for free?

5) Why isn't this expansion free?
Achilles wrote:None of the Coven roles (meaning all 15 roles in the expansion) are going to be added to classic. Coven will have a ranked mode so you aren't going to be missing out on anything. I think there will be little reason to continue playing classic unless you want to remain F2P or you are playing with friends that don't own Coven. We are trying to move away from F2P (microtransactions) and focus more on a freemium model (free version and paid version). With a freemium model we can spend a majority of our focus on just creating the best play experience possible and hoping a decent percentage of users pickup the Coven. With F2P we were forced to spend too much of our focus on cosmetics, sales and analytics. If there is a positive reaction to the Coven (15-20% conversion would be awesome) you can expect to see a big shift. We will pull back on promotion popups and microtransaction systems. We would much rather be spending our time making a great game that is worth $10.

Another big change you can expect to see is in the player base. Banning toxic users and multi-accounters is an unwinnable battle in F2P unless you force new accounts to go through a boring early leveling experience which of course hurts your new user experience and retention. With a freemium model everything changes. Multi-accounters will have to pay $10 per account and then have all of them banned in one swoop. You won't see much of that in the Coven. Additionally toxic users are going to get suspended or banned and realize that they need to play nice or lose all of the value in their account and wallet. We already have plans in place to bring on more judges for the trial system and to prioritize Coven reports. We hope to suspend/ban toxic players within 24 hours or less. Word will quickly spread through the Coven community that your account won't last long if you aren't respectful of other players.

6) What new roles are available in the expansion?

Please note that these roles cannot be played in the classic version and may only be played in the Coven expansion itself.
