TOPIC: [Pointshop Servers] Title price suggestion

[Pointshop Servers] Title price suggestion 3 months 2 weeks ago #1307463

Server Name: Pointshop servers Title Store

Suggestion Title: Lower the prices

How would it benefit the server: Depending on what server you're playing the amount of each item can be rather difficult to get, Lowering prices would suit the new economy more and is more reasonable for a cosmetic item that floats around your player, When it comes to getting diamonds to my knowledge it only takes a couple hours to get 10,000 but then that couple hours isn't so bad, It's then getting to the 500,000 for the custom might that take a couple weeks, then usually if you're spending that much you'd also want an animation that's then upto 100,000 for the animation, Maybe you also want rainbow text an additional 25,000, your total cost now being upto 625,000 diamonds, That is a lot and is not easy to get without some very boring and extensive grinding.

Potential Issues/Exploits: N/A

Additional notes: I believe that the prices should still be quite a bit for the custom title and animations however less than it currently is.

I'm going to take a swing and a miss and try to suggest some better prices.

Titles

Poor $1000
Unloved $2000
Abuser £3000
EGirl $5000
Legend $10000
God $50000
Pimp $100000
Custom Title $200000

Animations

Wiggle $10000
Rotate Left-Right $10000
Glitch $25000
TypeWriter $25000
Bouncing $30000
Wave $30000
Pulsing $50000
Orbit $50000
Halo $50000

As for rainbow/spin they are probably fine.

Also some of the fonts don't make a difference yet cost multiple thousand more. :(

I think this is a great suggestion.
Considering the only pointshop server i play is Surf,
diamonds can be hard to obtain once you played all the maps other players want to play on.

The prices are high to keep them very exclusive and to give something for players to grind for beyond the cheaper cosmetic options (skins)

There isn't a problem with title prices being high, I like the idea of it being a special thing that not many should have. But there needs to be a line drawn of when grinding for something becomes unfun and more of a chore, than an actual achievement. In my opinion, the prices Box has suggested are much more reasonable than the current ones.

The prices set were a way to reset the economy back with the old PS system to fight the inflation of currency. Now, everything is different and I feel like the current prices for titles are absolutely ridiculous and should be fixed to fit the current system. :plussp:

You have to have VIP to get the custom title so wouldn't it still be exclusive? Besides we were promised more VIP benefits on ttt ages ago and to my knowledge nothing has changed so maybe a rework could give us one of those benefits?

This basically.

I expect a grind to get the better tags however a 500k grind (+ extra for animations, fonts, rainbow & spin) the grind ends up being in my opinion extensively long and thus the interest in doing so runs low as it simply takes such a long period of time, I understand that you'll want to keep them exclusive and with the custom tag that is already going to be rather exclusive as it requires VIP, and with the economy now being a lot less than it was, less people can afford the tags and then less people care to achieve a good tag, It's like when you're playing a game and a very boring and long mission comes up, but you know after that mission something good that you want to achieve is there, sometimes no matter how much you wish to achieve that goal it's such a boring and long thing that you can't bring yourself to do it.

Note: My example in the end is absolutely horrible and completely irrelevant to the scenario but you get what I'm trying to say I hope? :)
