As many of you know, the mystery boxes completely crashed the economy. Plat items aren't worth anything and rare items aren't rare anymore. Please vote on this poll to help Sim9 decide what to do.

I still go for a combination of raising the price and making a limit per day, but if I had to pick one I'd go for rarer plat items.

I think it should be left how it currently is.

Plat will get cheaper and more players will be able to build their own dungeons/quests.

1. They cannot give eggs (/tele egg  forever!)

2. Kjh will still be rich, he is refocusing his area to selling plat items and expands that you cannot get in the shop.

3. You can get wildepads at a VERY low chance from mysboxes. They are the new super rare item.


I think it should be left how it currently is.

Plat will get cheaper and more players will be able to build their own dungeons/quests.

It doesn't mean they can make quests necessarily, as rewardblocks cannot be recieved through mysboxes. If you went in game, you would see how much it is screwing up the economy. It was a great idea on paper, but it is really just ruining everything.

Don't. This NEEDS to change. It looks good on paper, but honestly it's screwing over the economy. eg. People capitalizing on plat items that you can't get in boxes. Plat items will each have really messed up prices... IF anyone actually sells them.

 

Random elements never end well.

beyond the economy crash,free to play players can make dungeons and awesome stuff,things i could never get i won them in these boxes. 1 per day with x2 original price would be a better solution,or 1 each week.

but dont remove them...

Just make them more expensive so the plat doens't get devalued.

I think this would be better as just a special event thing. Maybe just for bitmas. Where you can open a mysbox once a day for a certain amount of days (12?) Leading up to bitmas.

Then I say raise the price and one per day

If Sim just raises prices and stuff, it should be fine.

What Meep says, put a limit on it and increase the price. Doesn't have to be one per day, 3 per day would work out. Remember that you also increased the amount of gold gained, so at least 2500g per box would be reasonable.

 

As for the rare items, you really need to decrease the chance. Right now it looks like there is a 1/15 chance to get a rare. You want to keep the rare items to be actually rare :)

 

Don't get me wrong, this is a great update because new players have easier access to plat items and they don't have to spend real money on the game initially because there is plenty to build now. A free Pocket Town where you can build your own dungeon with dungeon items that you can get from boxes. If they enjoy the game after a while they might want to actually buy plat for telepads, townexpands and stuff to make their town even greater :)

BUT I think you went a little overboard on this update :)

 

A lot of players are complaining because they see the value of their own items are dropping. It is a bit selfish imo. Also I've seen players complaining when they got a safe or a turret from their mystery box, which makes me kinda sad.
