March 1st, 2011 Notice

Today, Next Jump decided to make the Mastercard OO system suck a LOT worse by integrating it into the same network as yahoo, borders, dell, etc using a CHECK-IN OO system. This system SUCKS because it's MUCH harder to earn stars on MM OO than on other Next Jump sites, so you're at a disadvantage if you've been a loyal Mastercard user if you continue to use the MC OO site. There's really no point to the WOWBoosters unless there's some details yet to be revealed that makes the MC OO system seperate and special from other Next Jump sites (I don't think there is). I'll play it by ear, but it seems like this may be the functional end of WOWBoosters.




UPDATE 3-4-2011
With the amazing job Next Jump did March 1st nerfing the star advantage and points we all achieved on the Mastercard OO site, there's really no point to WOWBoosters any more. We've been thrown into a MUCH larger pool of Corporate Perks sites like yahoo, borders, dell, etc, that all are vying for the same prizes with much smaller quantities, and with MUCH easier star systems on their side. Therefore, while WOWBoosters have had to fight to get a 1-3 star advantage, virtually ALL the other sites we now compete against have 5 stars because they are so easy to get there. So, deals on the new system sell out in 0 seconds (5 seconds - 5 second star advantage).

Because that means there's now no point to continue doing what we've done here, I'm calling an end to WOWBoosters. If things change in the holiday OOs for 2011, I'll bring it back, but for now, Next Jump has just made it a huge time-wasting exercise in frustration.

With the 10x and 15x WOWpoints specials, you can spend as little as ~$5,000 over the year to get to the top level ($3,300 if you do JUST 15x offers). I think it's definitely do-able without too much pain.

The plan right now is to add the users from the 2010 WOWBoosters in based on final rank and then begin adding new users. That way the most dedicated users (that wrote the most reviews and ended ranked highest) will be in first. Just as with the 2010 WOWBoosters, if you're actively writing your own reviews, I'll work hard to make sure you hit God rank in 2010, and if you're an existing user and write lots of reviews it will help you get or retain Mayorships unless you're in a hotly contested one.

Should start in a day or so, and I'll update the OP with users and more info when it does.

Looks like credits through 1/31, then back to instant points.

To those who don't want to wait (gaijin has said he will add 10-20 people every so often to the 2011 list, which means you could be in for a VERY long wait), PM me with your Marketplace name and Follow/helpful me on Marketplace. Mine is blastingcap. I am **very active** (don't you hate following people who don't follow you back and helpful you back? if you PM me, I will 100% for sure follow/help you back).

My goal is to get everyone in within 10 days. I'm still working on some kind of formula to make it fair, but I'm thinking a daily add of 25 2010 WOWBoosters (there were 296 at the end, counting spammers and the deadpool - take them out and you're at about 250) and then add in the new users. Using that formula, we should have everyone in and active, old and new within 2 weeks, and it won't overwhelm people with too many to helpful.

I'm afraid if we do a free for all in the thread body it will be a lot of activity without an orderly ascension for everyone, and it will help the spammer problem we saw at the end of the 2010 WOWBoosters, and I don't think anyone wants that.

If someone has a better idea about how to do it so everyone benefits, I'm all ears. I don't have the answers to everything, I'm just trying to find a fair way to do this that doesn't overwhelm the people who want to continue with it.
