Dear SMURFERS,

Server do need more donations to pay monthly bills. This is for our own sake. If we can't pay the itakpro antihack server will go back to tom's antihack then boom! hackers will come and play(not play the game but play our database and in-game manipulations). I dont wrote this for myself, I as the admin of FlyForSmurf still cares of what's happening to the server. We should take this serious before our happiness ends. This is not compulsory or required, I'm just reminding you guys before it's too late. Just give me some few tips. Thank you.


By the way, If you want to donate just contact me @ livechat in SmurfGaming Website - How to Donate? As much as possible we need paypal donations so i can directly pay the bills. Thankyou.

Tell you what..
I will give you atleast 10$ a month.
How much does the VPS cost? I know it's powerful, so it might cost a bit?

You should make Event Packages. Every month you have a package which is cheap and offers some great deals. You could also advertise the package ingame.
For example:
CoM + Chaotic weapon + 3x 400%'s for 10$ would be this months Event Package.

Or you can have lotteries. Tickets cost $0.50 each? A random ticket is picked and the winner gets something.

Limit the NDGS on the server.. I can't see the point of donating if there are more non-donor sieges because donors can't use donated items..

4 hmmmm.. on Thu Jul 07, 2011 3:30 pm

hmmm... do more MIXED GS.. wherein donors and non donors may join.. those non donors that wanted to be strong will be more motivated to donate.

DO NOT put donation stuffs on events such as awakes, COM, CS sets, Behe wands etc. That should be a part of the donations. affraid

You wanna increase donation? Well it's simple...improve the community

1. GMs should only use English as a language when using the system chat. Lets say a new foreign player comes in our server, give him a couple of days and he will quit. Why? It's simple, "Wtf is this GM saying?! I aint Filipino! I cant understand anything, i cant even join events", you get the picture.

2. Currency! Where else can you find a server that trades LOAD for an item? I call this BULLSHIT! I see shouts like "S: this item for your LOAD". You might as well change monsters penya drop to load.

3. Abusive Gms! Here is a story, i was at saint morning the other day and there was this duel between 2 players...ill name then P1 and P2, so P2 looses the match then.. (i'll translate it in english)
P1: weak, weak!
P2: Go ahead and call me weak again.
P1: weak, weak!
P2 loggs off then suddenly in system chat: "Who are you calling weak now?". Now thats what i call professional, way to go GM!
Another story is when i joined a NDGS and used my donor cloak - yea i know its NDGS, i cant do donor sieges cuz i live in canada, and every time im online there are only 10-30 people - so the Gm caught me and froze me, after the siege he embarrassed my character using system chat. I didnt get any warning at all. Is this a good way to treat a donor? Ive donated $40 and i regret doing it, i cant use it in siege!

4. Donation page! Ok ok, its says "manyakol cloak, Imba weapon etc..". Come on man, just the names? Its not enough you should also include the stats that it gives. You dont expect everyone to know it right?

Please... PLEASE, only don't put cloaks/awakenings/cs/weap/cs whit status + 654987987654321649832165487 for donators, this is ridiculous.

•I suggest a VIP cloak a little better than normal (normal +100 VIP +125)not very strong, but that's actually worth spending.

•Remove lots os cs sets in game, add all in webshop.

•Drastically reduce the DROP (50 ~ 100) and add the sets and weapons in the webshop, FARM or BUY Smile (please² do not create weapons and sets OP to the webshop).

•PVP balance - is what differentiates the servers, and attracts more players. (more players, more donators)

Hi there is a one very good way to get much more money, i think of all players playing this server.

I see if more games use this system now (like Soul of the Ultimate Nation or Cabal Online - atm. its closed, dont know why) i mean SponsoryPay.

Overview
SponsorPay lets you earn virtual currency or premium services for your favorite games, virtual worlds and online services by participating in offers from our advertising partners.

We have a team of scouts from more than 25 countries who are constantly searching for the best deals for you. You can earn currency with SponsorPay in many different ways such as shopping online, watching videos, completing surveys or signing up for services.

SponsorPay only works with trusted advertising partners to provide you with transparent, risk-free offers. All our offers are tested to ensure the highest quality.

Check it.. i think everybody want some free cash points just for register on other web page or do some questionnairies.

Also u should make able to donate by SMS from all countries.. just while r u doing, remember if 10 USD = about 40 PLN, so balance prices. And u should make easy guides how to donate.

And last thing, u will have more donators if donate items will be not avaliable to trade in game (but u can move it to your other char).

Check it on net bc i cant show link on forum for 7 days.

At least u shoul show ppls if its not noobie to donate, for example give to new players a little amount of cash to try cash shop and they would have more and more Razz


@@ And more.. ;p

Dont ever give any donate items as event price, make some special things only for event what will sell event npc for special event valut for example something rare for 5 Surfers (what will be event valut) 1 event win = 1 smurfer. And dont give event special items in donate shop.. let donators have fun too. There in shop can be secial event weapon what will be a bit better than the best non-donate weapon but weakness than donate.

Sorry for my english.

Here's my suggestion, as we all know, to get more donors, we need more players. So I suggest that you guys find ways to make flyff smurfs more popular, more popular=more players=more donors=more smiles to you and us.

Here are some ways I know.
*make blogs
*make a trailer about the game and make it EPIC and show the whole world
*be famous in facebook

Hope I Helped and I Hope that some of you guys know some better ways. Very Happy

lol this is an imba server so expect more imba features!!!!

the features are good the way it is. If there are players who find fun in balanced I'm quite sure there are more people who find more enjoyment in imba gaming.

If you want balanced then you should play grouchy not here in Vanity.

you need a donation GM/Manager because a lot of people are donating and not receiving items because none of GM's are very active

Here are my two cents:
1) Make donation weapons tradeable. This increases a demand in the market, as not every player is able to donate, but every player is able to acquire these extremely powerful weapons. Most players, wanting to keep up in PvP, will purchase these items from donators. There may only be a few donators pumping these items and awakes into the market, but they will be spending hundreds of dollars to further themselves in-game.

2) Add powerful cash shop items. The Scroll of Unbinding (which is already present in eFlyFF) is a great tool for players who want to sell their soul-linked items. Also, the Font Editor (another cool item in eFlyFF) gives players the ability to change the color of their shouts, which is invaluable when marketing. A bright blue shout among light red shouts really stands out. Again, in eFlyFF, there is an item that spawns monsters like Red Meteonyker and Clockworks (only available in one of the Alchemy events). I'm sure that the devs could crank out items like this that spawns rare bosses like the Basilisk of the Great Maw, and put these items in the cash shop. In addition, if the server diversifies to have unique items and scrolls that no other server has thought of rolling out, then more players will be attracted here, bringing in more possible revenue.

3) More events. In my time on Fly for Smurf, I've only ever seen an event happen once. In comparison to some other servers, which have a few invasions a day, this server seems very dull. Events that spawn rare, high-in-demand monsters like the Basilisk of the Great Maw would bolster the population to be more active, and lowers the prices of alarmingly expensive items, which scare away new players very quickly. The server should, of course, do other events, like Hide and Seek, bringing a GM a certain number of items, Simon Says, and the like.

4) Custom mobs. I'm not saying to completely redesign new mobs, but instead to take some old ones and tweak their levels a bit. For instance, the Desert Spirit of the Sage is level 146, which makes leveling past that level very hard. Increasing the levels of monsters in the Bahara Desert, or in Traseia, would make leveling past 145 easier. Most people who siege or PvP are level 150, so this

5) Fixing lag. In Flarine, the lag is so bad (for me) that, even on the lowest settings, it takes around five seconds for the server to register that I have bought, sold, or moved an item. By lowering, or even removing the spawns of mobs that no one visits, such as places on Flaris (everything from Mushpangs to Feferns), Saint Morning (just tweaking the spawns a little), and Darkon 2 and 3 (with Darkon 2, mainly just the stuff past Clocks, and basically getting rid of most stuff in Darkon 3), the server can become a little more lag-free, as it will not have to make calculations for them anymore. Practically no one battles those mobs. This will help to make the starting town less intimidating to newcomers (possible donators), and, by having less lag, gives them the impression that the server is of extremely high quality.

And that's it, for now. If anyone has any reasons why these suggestions wouldn't work, feel free to post. Honestly, this is my favorite server for a while, which is really saying something, and I would love to see it succeed.

That's a good one. A lot of people are getting turned-off donating because of the hassles of the donation procedure here. The ones that experienced too much problems or still haven't received their donor items yet, will surely talk about the problems they have been thru in donating and especially getting their donor items.
