Donation perks

Post by Jaffakeik on Sat Feb 21, 2015 7:06 pm

One more addition for supporting this mod as donating, Developer could give option to donators based how many they donated,option to make some ingame item names or stats or something like that,what would encourage ppl to support this mod so it never dies Smile

I doubt that would be a good idea. You see the amount of Unique/set items in MXL is not as huge as in other games, and the general "rule" is each tier has 1 unique version of each item, while for sets there's just one per class (excluding secret/mp only items etc) so imagine marco wants to make, say, patch XX, where he decides to add another tier of unique items and he needs names. Now there are two problems:
First of all, too many people would go crazy and start selecting names for multiple items and in the end there would be more name options than items that are supposed to be made.
Secondly, what if a donor chooses a name, but a non-donor chooses a ten times better name for that item. For example: you would expect a spear based on lightning damage to be named "Thunderstrike" rather than "Deathkiller of the fallen demon"

The idea doesn't fit at all IMO. But nice try Smile don't be afraid to post more ideas but remember you need to logically think what could and couldn't turn out from this idea.

What happens to people FG or TG, whatever it's called on this site, during the new site transfer? Will it also transfer to the user accounts, as well as badges?

@taem

All is from the beginning as I know, but not sure about TG.

IMO ordinary badges should be wiped but contest badges and TG should be transferred, but that's not for me to decide Sad
Anyway I think we derailed a bit.
Jaffakeik, I know what you mean but, until you or someone posts a new idea we can only agree or disagree with previous ideas that were posted. I think there was a talk long ago about how cosmetic stuff (like a special aura) should be awarded to donors. That's something I'd agree with, as I see no harm at all in it. Pets would be cool, basically you donate, you get a charm which teaches you an oskill which summons a pet that is untargetable and does no damage, just follows you around... Maybe instead of getting it WHEN you donate, there will be a "marketplace" where you can choose what to buy of those cosmetic items for some big amount of TG, and then marco spawns it for you (or maybe it could be automatized)
Only problem I can see with this is what will happen when ladder resets? Would you lose it, or gain it again, or lose it and have a discount for it etc etc..

the only thing that will be transfered to new forum is TG, although cookies might be transfered too (hard to give up on my almost 1k cookies Razz )

You know that with Zeta, or Sigma you will get a lot of cookies.

Even with new forum of course.

If you don't transfer cookies, I will give you one (or if you change this), or max amount of cookies every day for exactly 1 year, and that is already 365.

He's not serious about cookies, it's probably the least imp thing with the new forum on it's way.

Only perk i can think is to have some donor badges with the signet of gold graphic or something like that. I don't feel the mod itself should be influenced with money.

the idea in the new forums is that there will be more you can do with TG. The idea with TG is and has always been a forum currency, not strictly an in-game trading one.
