I have ample evidence that ET is a weedy little twerp.

On November 17, 2009, we changed the value of Brownie Points.

When we did this, we multiplied everyone’s balances by the same amount so that everything is fair and nobody’s money was lost.

We did this for a few reasons:

  • We wanted to be able to fine-tune our prices and the previous amounts weren’t flexible enough. For example: we wanted to make some products cheaper than 1 Brownie Point, but we couldn’t without making them free.
  • At some point in the future, we want it to be possible to earn Brownie Points by completing in-game tasks, and we wanted smaller increments to reward players more frequently.
  • We want players to be able to run contests in Flamebate with more winners without having to waste a ton of money.

If you are running a contest for BP values, please edit your posts to adjust the prices accordingly. You should make it an even swap with the new conversion rate (15:1).

We’ve also adjusted some of our prices for products. The majority of the prices have gone downwards, but most things are more or less the same.

If you have any more questions or think your balance is wrong, mods/admins will be willing to help you sort it out. Just contact us Log in to see images!

Thanks!

Are mods going to update all the active contests being run by people who don’t visit the site regularly anymore?

I hope so! If someone sees one that needs updating we can handle that for you. Report it!

I'd build a road in gold just to have some dreaming...

Interesting.

Would still recommend opening the economy and allowing people to sell BPs for flezz (along with moving flezz freely.) People think it would skew things, but really I’ve watched the system work beautifully on KoL for years now.

This is something we’re considering. We’re not sure yet how we want BP to be obtainable in-game, but a large Flezz conversion might work.

For now the goal was to allow us to give them out in smaller increments. We wanted to do this before pre-orders for E3 so that people would have some time to get used to it.

Hi, I'm an adult whos into anime. ALSO male reproductive organS!

Just so I can understand, the reason you’ve made these such HUGE amounts, is because you plan to start giving players a way to earn BP without donating, right?

I forgot:

GameDolphin

Can’t remember if it was 2 or 3 bp. Pretty sure it was 3, so GD got cheaper too.

Game Dolphin was 3 according to the wiki.

Also Access to Ep2 is now 100, keeping it at buying Full Body Release.

The first one was intentional, but the second was a mistake. I’ve changed it to be 180 now.

That is one of the main reasons, but I have three in the post.

That’s just one reason, although there are two other important reasons listed in the OP.

Ummm… An unintentional consequence of this is probably that it devalues the Big Give peen requirements by an order of 15. Now if you run a contest for 1 BP, you can still get that peen.

Divide the peen size by 15?

Just to repeat myself from the podcast thread – I suggest being able to put BPs on Kyoubai. As long as BPs cannot be bought from the house (you guys) but only from other players, it should only help the demand for buying them for cash, by having more of them used. I’m also going to suggest again having in-game items that can be bought for BP.

That would be a kewl way to do it, yeah. They’d need to set the min price p high though.
