Sam and Dan Games: Fundraiser! Phase 4



Help us keep making games and earn awesome prizes like Shiny Rayquaza, Cosmoid Starters for PTD 2, Shiny Heatran and Shiny Pokemon X and Y Legendaries!  

Our Goal: $50,000

Birthday Legendary!
Every year on my the week of my birthday I like to give out a very special Legendary Pokemon as the Mystery Gift. So the time has come again (my birthday is on November 26) and it so happens that this week the Mystery Gift type is Dragon. So I present to you the Mystery Gift for this week.....
Kyurem!
The Mystery Gift will be a regular/shadow Kyurem and the Giveaway will be a Shiny Kyurem! I hope you guys enjoy this special gift!

Double Gym Battle (This part of the update has been pushed to the next one due to my birthday and the Thanks Giving Holiday)
This week we arrive in Olivine City and find that there is something happening in the city. Both Chuck (the Cianwood City Gym Leader) and Jasmine (the Olivine City Gym Leader) will be there. Will you be able to defeat both of them battling you at the same time?

Old Data Wipe 
In about 6 months from now we will be doing a data wipe to any accounts that aren't used in 6 months. If you are a regular player then you will be fine just make sure you log in every once in a while so you don't lose your accounts. There is a lot of old data in the system that is just sitting there collecting dust and slowing everything down. Your data will only be wiped if you do not log in for a whole 6 months or more. If you log in every 3 months or every 5 months you will be fine.

Sam and Dan Games Subscriber
Next year we will be coming out with a subscriber service. The service will cost about 1.99 a month with special discounts if you pay for a whole year in advance. The service will bring many benefits to the subscribers with more being added over time. Some of the benefits will include a higher shiny encounter rate, more breeding spots for breeding, better breeding items, a subscriber only server to ensure that subscribers have no problems playing at even the busiest times, automatically receive giveaway pokemon without having to be on at the right time and more! Future games will also give out benefits to subscribers and like I said we will be adding more and more over time.

What will change with the Subscriber service? Is the game no longer free?
The game will ALWAYS be free! You can do everything you can do now for free. The subscriber feature is just for players that want to support us plus get some great EXTRA perks. The game will stay just how it is now for free players.

So will non subscribers still get a chance at giveaways? What if you have over 500 subscribers?
The subscribers will automatically receive the giveaway pokemon without entering a code. This means that the 500 that I giveaway will still be available to non subscribers and only non-subscribers. Subscribers will not be able to enter the code into their account since they already get them automatically.

If you like our games and want to support us this will be a great way for you to get many benefits from it! Stay Tuned!

    Sam and Dan Games: Fundraiser! Phase 4

    Our Goal: $50,000

    Phase 4 of the Fundraiser!
    Phase 4 of the Fundraiser starts this week. This will be the last phase of the fundraiser which will end on January. If you want to obtain these legendaries and cosmoid for your account make sure you get them before then. I'm happy to announce the new prizes for the new tiers of funding. They will be shiny Yveltal and Xerneas from Pokemon X and Y! If you donated 20 or more you will get to pick one of them and get 3 of the one that you pick (very useful for trading). If you donated 25 or more you will get another 3 of the one that you pick. For reaching 25 you get 6 total and potentially 3 of each.

    Fairy Type Arrives!
    Because of the new Fundraiser tier and adding Xerneas I will introduce the Fairy type into PTD 2. I will add the type to all pokemon that now fall under it (ex. Togepi, Jigglypuff, etc) but I won't be giving them all their attacks this week. Only the ones that they share with Xerneas. Also I'll be changing other types that changed in generation 6.

    Saving problems
    With more people playing the game the server sometimes has trouble keeping up which causes save files not to work. This week I will make it so if your save file works you can still save without it telling you that you saved somewhere else.

    Ecruteak City
    In an effort to push the story along we have made it to Ecruteak City rather quickly with 3 routes being created last week. This week I'm bringing the Gym match versus Morty. Morty encounters Shadow Pokemon that were brought by Mewthree's destruction. What will happen next?!

    Mystery Gift
    This week we will have the final type, Normal. So we will go straight into voting for it.
