Crescent Store & Ranks Improvements
Amazon ain't got nothing on us.


Hi, Crescent!

It took a while to complete, but at last: the long-due Crescent Store update has arrived! With a completely rewritten back-end and a lot of new features, the store is now easier, faster, and nicer to use overall.
But that's not all: alongside the store update arrive a series of changes and improvements to our premium ranks offerings. Now more than ever, it's worth getting yourself a rank, boosting your experience with some great perks - and support the development of Project Crescent too. It's a win-win, really!

Let's go over the new treats...




Crescent Store Update
The Crescent Store had a major upgrade end-to-end, with a completely rewritten back-end that utilizes XenForo's powerful 'Service' module, a ton of bug fixes, and an overall better architecture. This, in turn, allowed us to finally introduce some long-anticipated features.

Buying items in quantity

Stack 'em up!
No longer will you have to continuously buy the same item over and over to get it multiple times. You can now buy up to 20 units of the same item in one transaction! They will arrive at your in-game mail as always

Multi-Month Rank Purchasing

Buy more for less!
You can now buy any of our non-permanent ranks for 1, 3, 6, or 12 months in advance, and even get a decent discount! From 10% off for 3 months up to 30% off for a whole year, supporting Crescent in the long run is now worthier than ever. Committing to something has it's benefits for sure.

Rank Color & Frame Change

Update your look with ease!
Need a new look? Tired of that old color? Now you can change these directly for a significantly low cost rather than extend your rank. Finally, you can easily change your look without thinking too much, nor spending too much!

______________________________

Improved Buying Experience & Flow


Go with the flow!
We improved the buying flow to be faster and sleeker overall, too! The entire process is now done in the same page, which means you can now quickly purchase multiple items without ever leaving the page. Not only that, but the back-end improvements also mean the processing of your order is almost three times faster than before - almost instantly, pretty much! Lastly, we improved the prompts and phrasing across the UI to make it easier to locate what you're after quickly, and fixed any inconsistencies.

Discord Rank & Color Sync Improvements

Bugs, begone!
To wrap up the technical improvements, we rewrote OpalBot's rank & color sync system to work with the new store back-end, too. This means crushing all the bugs and weird issues the old system suffered from, and ensure ranks are always up to date. Beep boop!



Indeed, the upgraded Crescent Store is an overall improvement across the board, and will certainly serve you better as a player. We hope you will enjoy these updates!




Ranks & Perks Changes
Alongside the technical changes to the store, we also made some significant changes to the actual content we offer through it - and we're sure you're going to like them! New features, awesome perks, and improved pricing: there's no better time to support Crescent than now.

______________________________

Loading Screen Quotes



Loading screens are boring - so why not spice them up with a little bit of memes? All rank owners in CTTT can now set their very own quote that will be randomly shown in the loading screen of our servers! Dad jokes, market advertises, or serious matters - this is your space to say what you have to say for the rest of the community!
Please note: personal quotes are still subject to our community and game rules. Inappropriate or malicious quotes will be removed without warning. Don't ruin it for everyone.

New Perks and Benefits

We have loaded our ranks with brand new perks and benefits that'll make your experience better than ever.
For example:
Even more inventory slots than before!
Additional daily, weekly, and even monthly tasks!
Increased low/high population rewards!
Higher weapon EXP gain!
Free access to all Emoji!
...and more!


But that's not all for our ranks...

Rank Simplification & Price Reduction

Your feedback is valuable to us, as always. We listened to what you have to say on our rank offerings, and today we're happy to introduce a simpler, cheaper, and overall better rank roster for CTTT.
First: we are retiring Crescent Lite, our permanent rank, and replacing it with Crescent Plus which is now a permanent, one-time-purchase rank. This means that you can now enjoy permanent access to even more perks for the same price! And don't worry: all existing owners of Crescent Lite will be upgraded to Crescent Plus for absolutely free - it's a straight-up upgrade at no additional cost. We spoil you, don't we?

In addition, we are reducing the price of our two remaining ranks, Ultra and Infinity, in hope of making them more affordable and valuable for our players. Yes, this includes all the new perks mentioned above! More for less - what's not to like, really?

Discord Nitro Boosters Reward

Finally, we have one last treat - this time for our Discord members. Have an extra Nitro boost to spend? You can get a rank in return!
Boosting our Discord server will now reward you with Crescent Plus - for free! As long as you maintain your boost, you will have unlimited access to all the perks and goods that come with the rank, all while supporting our server as well. A single boost is all you need, so you can still use the second one you get with your Nitro subscription elsewhere. All you need to do is make sure your forum account is linked, and the rest will happen on its own.

If you run into any problem with redeeming this promotion, please contact me through Discord or the forums.




Whew. That's a lot of treats for sure.
We hope you will enjoy our newly upgraded store, as well as all the new new features and goods it provides. This update is the direct result of your feedback on the experience as a whole - and the results are all for you to enjoy.

Remember: your purchases at the Crescent Store are what allows us to continue developing and hosting Project Crescent! As much as we'd love to, running a community as complex and varied as ours isn't cheap at all, and we need your help. Your generous support will help us secure the future of Crescent for the many months and years to come. Thank you for your support!

As with everything new - and especially with such a large-scale rewrite, it's not unlikely that there are still some bugs that sneaked past our tests. Should you encounter any problems with the new store or its features, please let us know! We will fix it ASAP.
If you have any questions or concerns about the store or something you purchased, please don't hesitate to contact us through the contact form. Make sure to include important information such as your transaction ID so we can help you quickly!




That's it for this one. Thanks for reading, and many thanks for your support and kind words, as always.
Cheers! 🧡
