Server Currency

Post  Admin on Wed Apr 15, 2009 5:00 pm

Hi everyone,

Back in the old server, we use to have a server currency system to allow players to buy things that normally not available/very difficult to obtain. I used [BlackCat Badge] for TBC content and [BlackCat Token] for the old content. For instance, these tokens then could be used to buy Ashes of Al'ar, it won't be cheap but at least it's doable now..

I want to get some opinion from players from balance point of view because I'm hesitating to bring this back as this has caused great distraction for player in the old server and I don't want that to happen again, lest I'll be forced to close down the server - again.

What happened was players turned into farmers so they can get the required amount of token and badges to buy the stuff they need, they neglected raid invites, etc..

Remember that this supposed to be done when you're not raiding, it gives you something to do..

The current idea is, to have a custom vendor that sells [BlackCat Badge] for the price of 1000 gold. Selling price of this token is 250g.
There will be a vendor that sells ashes of al'ar for 175 badge (equivalent of 175k in gold). However farming for gold is not exactly fun as it's repetitious so I propose to insert these badges into bosses in TBC as an incentive to do raids. Which boss and how many badges per boss is still yet to be discussed..

Please let me know what you all think about this.. if I receive little to no response then I'll assume that you're not interested..

Cheers..

ide yang bagus boss
masukin ke 25-man dungeons aja
biar pada rajin ikut
1 badge per boss
2 badges untuk boss terakhir

untuk boss yang lom pernah di bunuh drop badge lebih banyak...3-5 badges??
ntar kalo udah pernah first kill turun jadi 1 badge
tujuannya sih biar tambah semangat clear content

tapi harganya turunin dikit lah.. 150 is very reasonable i think...

just my 0.02

What i am afraid later will turn all players into farmers, as you have said, mut...But as long they will remember the raid, should be no problem, i guess...My suggestion is to put the badges in 25-man raid only, as Zure said, this will encourage them to clear the content faster...This is just my opinion, though XD

Inserting custom items is not easy and adjusting the amount of badges drop requires a bit of work. This means I need to redo this every time we progress, that's a fair bit amount of work..

We need to decide the correct amount from the start, for 10 man content I'm thinking of putting 1 badge in Hexx and Zuljin, Curator and prince so the amount is not enough to turn people into farmer but a nice bonus when running these instances.

Cheers..

Well..putting the badge in curator, prince, hexx, and zul jin for 10 man is a good starting idea, IMO...Just see how others feel and hear their opinion about it...But i assume, players will want to know some of the item sold in the custom vendor (one of the starting idea is the flying mount)..but where you'll put the vendor..I guess it will be in Shattrath City?

Putting it in Shattrath city is a good idea so I don't have to create 2 NPCs (Ally/Horde). I want to get more opinions on this so please encourage other players to read this put in their 2 cents..

Thanks..

IMHO...

I agree to put the badges in the 25 main raid (like zure and shelf said)...
besides to encourage people to clear the content ASAP... it cant be farmed unless the minimum player for 25 man raid are online Very Happy (20 people I guess)...

also I do agree with putting the badges in hexx, zuljin, curator and prince...
but put just one or two badges in there...
if you put too many, the chance to farm badges in there is high... because I think kara and ZA already too easy (or it's because of the choice of the party Razz)...

In my opinion put the badges ONLY on 25-man content of raids.. so people will be more focused on progressing to the 25-man content raids!

Since now KARA and ZA on Farm Mode for gear like aiz said "it's tooo easyy".. Twisted Evil

And yeah more worthy items on the vendor will certainly passionate the players Smile

Basically it's better than nothing.. i guess..

I agree to introduce the badge only on 25 man raid because kara and ZA are just the 1st step into the real content of BC and we do not want people to start farming kara and ZA.

For the amount of badges each boss I reckon just make it the same as BoJ dropped by the bosses. because with limited people we may be having difficulties to do 25 man raids regularly so why don't reward those who actually attending the raids generously and hopefully people will start showing up for raids. Surprised

Although I think it's a good idea to give incentive to people to show up to raid. I slightly dislike the fact that people have to be bribed to turn up to raids but anyway since the majority seem to like the idea of badge, I might implement it this weekend, when I have the mood.. doing this thing is tedious >_<

So the conclusion is to insert badges into 25 man bosses, cannot be bought by money, at the same amount as BoJ? For the amount of badges, I have to sit down and calculate this to make sure it's balance, it's not easy but not impossible either.. or maybe someone wants to help me calculate this?

How about [BlackCat Token] that cannot be used to buy anything but can be sold to vendor, let's say, 100g each?

Cheers..

So you are saying you will put 2 kinds, the BC Badge to buy the item in custom vendor and the BC token to sell them for money?

Well, yes, that's the thought but need other people to put their 2 cents into it, especially around balance issue..

I think it's a great idea, since majority of the player in this server need a lot of amount of money (for buying stuff from AH Very Happy)
