So, I was going to post this in response to a post in the Slappy Scrunt thread, but I realized it might deserve its own topic.
I honestly thought it was just kind of a given that pricing and item stat budgeting were more or less arbtrary. I mean, take a look at the troll store – would anyone here ever buy a Segway with sidecar over an MC Banhammer Memorial Love Doll? Yeah, it’s a little douchebaggery and defense better, but you lose a huge chunk of offense. And somewhere in the emo kid store there’s a piece of equipment that’s a straight-up downgrade from another, but costs more. Hacker equipment seems to be a little better about this, with items dedicated to a single stat giving more of it then “all-around” items at the same price level, but not to the extent where I found most equipment to be useful. I went straight from Holy Water Cooling Systems and Alan Turing’s Brains to Transformer Modifications, with no desire for the items in between them in prices, although my good luck in farming a certain .moar file probably pushed me to the most expensive option a little faster than I would have taken it otherwise.
I don’t intend this to be a FIX ITEM STATS fabulous person ADMINS DO IT DO IT post, I’m just wondering if there’s anything I’m missing, or any upcoming plans I don’t know about. Is there any unseen benefit to the single-stat items?
(EDIT: Fixed typo)
(EDIT EDIT: In retrospect, this probably would’ve gone better in Game Discussion than here, seeing as it’s not new to Ep3 or anything. Could someone this there, please?)
