I have an irresistible urge to tell you guys how I feel about frequency of Deals on IGS.

I don't like them being every four days, I would like much more every three and half (3½) days.

That would make deals regular on weekly period. I could easily remember when the new deals are (and also my OCD part would feel satisfied :D ).


What do you guys think? Is it just me or you feel the same?

Well, you just need to realize it's on a 7 week cycle instead of a 7 day cycle. Every 7 weeks the sequence of days repeats. Stick that in your OCD. :)

I think it's fine the way it is. If you did it every 3 1/2 days then you would have to remember that the starting time is not always the same (which imo is more convenient than differing days).

If I hadn't cured myself of OCD with $20k in payments to Dr. Heap, I'd probably concur. As is, I feel most people would find it inconvenient to have every other deal start at a different time of day. One thing I learned as someone with OCD, is every brand of OCD is a bit differently. We just like to think that our brand is the 'right' one. In all honestly, it doesn't always make sense to other people and we have to learn to live with that.

You know, now that I think about it I would actually prefer to see this:

- Instead of every 4 days, do a week-long promotion featuring 2 different deals/games. Same time, same day, every week & problem solved for the OCD 8-)

Bearing everyone's best interests in mind, we're going to be switching to a more convenient, new-game-every-3.65-days schedule, so that we can feature exactly 100 games per year.

My only complaint with the 4 days timed deals is that they always start at 5 AM for me, so if IGS has been hinting towards that feature I get all hyped at night but I can only see what's the deal next day. It's not like I won't be checking the website on those 4 days but yeah, I think you get the point :P
