    Hey all,

    In my earlier post, I had commented on that we had hit a hiccup with the "Skip for coins" but I didn't get into specifics, so I will do that now.

    Main issue with current campaign is the unlock strategy and our desire to release partial campaigns (aka. 5 action tracks, 5 fantasy and then add 5 more action and 5 more fantasy). Currently campaigns unlock when you complete or soon to be skip tracks in order, this creates a big issue when we start to push out incomplete campaigns and add to them over time to hit our magical 10 track campaign #.

    What I am proposing and now leaning heavily towards is changing each campaign to have it's own requirements for unlocking for example with our current set:
    - Learning the Ropes is unlocked for everyone when you sign up
    - Training Wheels Off is unlocked after say 4 Gold Medals

    For future Campaigns, they can be a mix of Gold Medals but even other aspects of the game like: Race 5 Friends, Rate 5 Tracks, Create a track, Earn 5000 coins, etc....

    This sets up in my opinion a much more interesting unlock strategy where players can follow multiple paths.

    Inside a campaign you would still only get 1 free track unlocked, if you hit a road block that is where skip for coins would come in.

    Now the not so good part, since this is a deviation from the current unlock strategy this will require a bit more dev work but we should be able to get it out next week. It seems like this is the way to go and will set up a lot more interesting unlock strategies for future campaigns, what do you think?

    I have always thought this defeats the purpose of campaigns; try,lose,try again,lose, try again, succeed, hence making you better.

    But I suppose this would be nice for new players, and they are the ones who would use this, so I guess that my opinion should not be weighed as heavily, as say, JacobCahoon's!

    JK! Some other noob person

    I think the cost to skip a track is a good idea. I'm fine with the wait until next week, game performance comes first :thumbsup:

    Yeah that unlock system would be cool. The trial campaign for example is very hard compared to the other ones, so you could have that unlock when you get gold for every track in the first 2 campaigns. Then for the dirt jump one you could unlock it by racing your friends. Sounds fun to me!

    I'm anxious to see whether I got campaign or not. There's a .000000000001% chance I did, but i still have that feeling in my gut.

    I'm pretty psyched to see if I get in too. But if you don't, don't whine and moan about it, just accept that you didn't get it and move on.

    I think your tracks are good enough! ;)
    Yeah, I'm not a sore loser, especially when I keep losing when I play singles in tennis but I'm getting better! YAY! It's the same with FR. Practice, practice and practice. :)

    OMG!! I think you should enter them in action...my opinion! I hope mountains fit it! One of the gravity mania's would fit in caves. :)
