Reward Credits (RC) are the digital currency used here at Cheat Happens that can be spent on a variety of different things around the site. On the 1st of each month, all active premium members (including monthly, yearly, lifetime and lifetime plus) receive a set amount of Reward Credits (RC) based on their membership level. Reward Credits are also given out randomly throughout the year to Lifetime PLUS subscribers. Lifetime users may transfer any number of their credits to any other premium member. Reward Credits are distributed monthly by membership type as follows:
Trainer Request System
Our request system is used to determine which games receive new trainers. Each game will have a reward credit goal assigned based on the number of unspent credits in the system, game popularity, difficulty in training and history of updates from the game developer. Premium members may assign any number of their available Reward Credits (RC) to any game or use them to request games not yet on the list. Once the game reaches the requirement, it will be evaluated and a trainer created if possible. If a trainer is not possible, the request will be denied and all credits refunded.
Trainer Option Request System
Similar to our new trainer request system, this is used to request additional options be added to existing trainers. A Lifetime PLUS membership, plus 1000 Reward Credits (RC) are required in order to submit a NEW option request which will then be reviewed by a site admin. Once approved, it will be given a credit goal and then ANY member with unspent Reward Credits may vote and help fund any of the requested options. Once the goal is met it will be evaluated by our trainer programmers and then added to the next trainer update or rejected and all credits refunded if the option is not possible. In order to prevent the trainer programmers being overloaded with option requests by a single user, each option will require partial funding by 5 different users (not counting the user that originally submitted the request). Each vote will also require a specific amount of credits, split evenly among the overall RC goal of that option.
Boost Trainer Priority
Lifetime PLUS subscribers may use their Reward Credits to boost the priority of any new trainer or update that is currently on our worklist. There are limitations on the number of titles that can be boosted at one time.
Cheat Happens Prize Wheel
At the Cheat Happens Prize Wheel users that have earned spins may spin the wheel and win one of nine possible prizes. Wheel spins are typically earned by being a Lifetime PLUS member but may be given out to any user as a result of a contest or other event held at the site. Wheel spins may not traded. Once a wheel spin is used, the prize chosen is final and only the Free Game and Cheat Happens T-Shirt may be traded for Reward Credits immediately after the spin. Non RC-based prizes may be deferred and claimed at a later date through the User Settings menu. As of right now, prizes have no expiration date but this could change in the future.
Cheat Happens Reward Credits (RC) Store
Welcome to the Cheat Happens RC Store where users can spend Reward Credits (RC) on both in-site and real-world items. Reward Credits are earned monthly by all of our membership levels and may also be traded and purchased. Our Lifetime PLUS members earn the most credits each month and are also given random free credit packages throughout the year ranging up to 100K free RC. Reward Credits may also be won as a prize from the CH Prize Wheel.
The prices for items in the store are based on multiple factors including the number of unspent RC held by users (currently over 750 MILLION), the average number of RC held by each user, number of Lifetime PLUS subscribers, etc.
