Level 69 Troll

Trying to create drama to drum up the ratings by any means necessary!

Today we got the first Hacker item, with the following stats:

* Max Processing Power +52
* Offense +8
* Defense +8
* Luck +5

Unfortunately, it’s a special item, much less powerful than either of the balls. The odds of a hacker buying this, if they can afford either of the others, is slim.

The stats also would make for an interesting decision for hackers IMO: Discared the extra offense/defense/luck from a Beast0r in exchange for the extra PP? Do it more than once? As is, it’s not a choice. You take it if you don’t have a better special item, end of decision.

Special items should be special and relatively unique, and not ubiquitous. Request removal of that category in itembuildr.

I think the same goes for the Death Clock, it was supposed to be a piercing/tattoo but was clbumified as a Special Item.

Yeah, I have the other special items, so I see no reason that I would buy this.

Request removal of special items from builder as well.

I agree. Special Items should be manually created by ET/JB, not randomly introduced.

Good idea imo. Wouldn’t buy it. Besides, 50something PP isn’t that much anyway. I would like to see something that significantly increases my PP. Maybe a picture file or something.

I’ll actually be buying the item (even if my suggestion doesn’t win), if only for the luck boost. I already rotate a good portion of my equipment for charisma and luck, why not the Special slot too?

Beyond that mediocre luck bump… I don’t know. I won’t be using it for forums.

I think right now, there’s no competing with Master Balls (or Headsets, if you can manage to buy them), for that Special slot. If, on the other hand, Itembuildr crossbreeds more Special items, there might eventually be more choices to think about in that slot. IIRC, the new algorithm crossbreeds items, so one day there might be a weakened MB that also boosts PP/what-have-you by enough to give you pause. If that happens for each clbum, eventually that might cease to be the MasterBall/Headset Slot. If Special Items are kicked out of rotation, though, the situation will pretty much stagnate. I thought the whole point of Itembuildr was to create some interesting options beyond the current “best build”, eventually.

Let’s face it – most of the items Itembuildr churns out are going to be worse than something pre-existing for the same slot, and most of them are going to be skipped by everyone but collectors, completists, and the shortsighted. If we want to retool itembuildr overall, I’d be behind that, but I don’t think locking down Special Items is where it’s at.

As I usually point out when talking seriously, though, I am a mbumive noob, so my opinions are to be taken with a grain of salt.

Agreed. To be totally honest, all of the itembuildr items are pretty worthless… if you have the high end of all of the tiems, you pretty much have no need for these. And any of the special items gives way too huge of a boost for their price.

Herbaceous, biennial, dicotyledonous , and flowering.

I think that special items really ought to be, well, special, and shouldn’t pop up in itembuildr nearly as often as they do currently.

The odds of spawning a special item should be less than the odds of spawning glbumes, a piercing, lingerie, a tattoo, a fetish, a book, or a piece of hardware IMO. We’re getting way too many special items, and nobody is going to use any of them so long as dragon and master balls are relatively easy to come by.

IMO itembuildr “special items” should show up ~1-2 times a month, disappear from the co-op after a couple of weeks, and not appear in the ppwn rotation. That would make them significantly more special

Although I see your point about Special Items, I do feel that particular item does have one potential use:

For people who trying to stack as much luck as humanly possible, that Conficker item could be a useful thing to equip before logging off for the night, or for people who just like having as much luck as possible.

As I hacker I have no desire to buy this item. Even if it were hardware. I have 4 beastor and a Master Ball.

It does not make any sense to buy such a useless item.

Admins should be the only ones who can put up Special Items. I’m personally tired of seeing only the headset, where no normal user can buy only the current person who is whoring the Flezz Leader board

Sure, if you were THERE for the Master Ball.

Mind you, I was, but I didn’t have enough on my hacker to purchase it.

So he has the Conficker virus.

anti-signed* the damage has already been done with the special items, removing them now is useless if your trying to pitch the idea that everything but the mouse should be limited. And so what if a item comes out no one will ever buy, that was the point of item buildr, it creates something completely random. It can be down right trash, or it can be something like master balls that everyone has to buy, just the luck of the draw.

if item buildr was every item buildr was every item that came out has to be better then it’s predecessor then 90% of the items would be useless anyway.

Unsigned. This idea is pretty silly. We all know that the itembuildr items are removed from the co-op sooner or lated, and it might be more viable to get special items other than the balls.

Plus, they’re great for collectors

A lot of people will buy something like the conflictor virus to for the extra luck boost rather then just offense and defense stats.
