"Renting" Hunters/Monster with keys for some time


#1

Getting a chance to test a character before you buy him would be great. Especially for newer players, who don’t even know the abilities of a specific character. They would just end up buying the one that looks the coolest.

My suggestion is a Trial/Renting system. You spend like 1/5th of the full price for a character and then you will have him unlocked for one week (or so).

The first few days/weeks are the most important ones when we’re trying to get new players to play the game and keep playing it. A renting system would allow exactly that, by giving (teasing) them more characters early on, without taking away the grinding aspect later when you want to fully unlock a character after the trial.

+1, good idea, works really well in Smite (and no doubt other games)

HotS has an interesting mode too - you can try out any character in the game on a custom, minimalistic map with one ally, one enemy and some targets with DPS/HPS counters. A mode like this could be very useful for testing and comparison of characters.
