I currently have 15 BP – it seems like only yesterday it was just 1. Log in to see images!

Happy fifth anniversary, Forumwarz! :pumpaul:

Yeah, we’d probably expect a minimum of 15 BP for a Big Give E-Peen™ or something like that. I guess we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Streaks are really important :sarc:

Evil Trout Posted:

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!

You already complain that the game is horrible all the time. Log in to see images! I agree it would be horrible if it was introduced without opening the economy. Then it would simply be a donor game and that drives people away. Allowing people to trade for things in Kyoubai would very much be the equivalent of the mall in KoL. I have two characters over there, one has donated plenty, one has earned the in game currency and purchased all specialty items from the mall. Both characters are fully capable of anything. As long as I had options the specialty items did absolutely nothing to give one character an advantage over the other.

MC Banhammer Posted:

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

No, you misunderstand. Catt means the players are the only ones who sell BP at auction. Any BPs sold would have been purchased by players, not put up by CZ. The only way for sales to be maintained is to keep CZ from introducing extra random BPs into the economy, it must be player driven.

scully, I think you know what I meant but I’m gonna talk a bit about it. I hate those games where people who simply give out the money need no skill on the said game to be on the “top”. I think CZ has already talked about this that they do not want to turn forumwarz into that and that’s the reason for the joke app ET did a while ago.
Maybe if it’s some kind of decorative item or gives cheater status or something along the lines.
I’d totally buy something like a 0off 0def helmet for keyboard bashing for example.

some good stuff.

I do know what you meant, but not every game with buyable things turns to crap. A lot depends on how the game itself functions and whether the game designers behave responsibly when they release things.

This is what scares me the most though. That we could make a mistake and ruin the fun of the game for everyone.

I absolutely do not want our game to become one of those Zynga pieces of **** where people just buy their way to the top. So while we do want BP earnable in game, we have to be SUPER careful about how we do it.

Hmm…

Given that, I think you should wait until Dom is overhauled before doing this. Because really, what else can you buy your way to the top with other than a competitive advantage in Dom? The storyline game is a solo affair you could cheat your way through anyway if you really wanted to.

Maybe leaderboards, because buying ads increases your ability to go for Flamebate fodder and the other “click here and do something to give me +1”-type things. But that’s about it, no?
