I was a sub until just recently and I really believe something like this would work. Subscribing is definitely worth it for those who can and I think an extra game tournament or access to one siege board or whatever would definitely add some incentive... I didn't think those tournaments would be any fun until I played one... it's amazing.
Like I said earlier, incentives are nice... but number of moves has nothing to do with it. If you can get someone to join and pay, now we're talking.
This user talks of loyalty to the site, but where is the loyalty when you play so many games but never pay? Loyalty is drumming up new users who are willing to pay if you are unable to pay to play.
There is absolutely no business sense in giving features to players who don't pay just because they play more games. Non-paying members could play each other in a rush to build their move counts up and get something others pay to have. If anything, it would hurt business.
Non-subs used to get 10 games, that was dropped back to 6. I don't think the admins are willing to have non-paying members who have 10 games or more, or they would have left it at 10.
