I'm in the process of designing a Minecraft server, wondering if daily rewards work.
Login rewards, quick daily tasks, repeatable daily quest chains. They seem extremely popular with developers, to the point where almost every MMO has a 'calendar' which rewards you with daily gifts.
Do these actually really work? Do they boost player retention so well that it's a must have?
For me personally, I feel like games can often become a chore. You learn to log in for the 'errands', losing meaningful interest in the long term.
