READ PLZ ------------>> Easier plat. <<------------ READ PLZ (it's not what you think)
Okay, so before I start I just say that this game is awesome and you're doing a really good job. Continue the good work.
Now as you may have seen in the title, this idea is about plat. Now, before you ragequit and stop reading this, I must tell you that this is not the often suggested "free plat" idea. I know you need to charge for plat so you can pay your rent and can keep working on the project and keep providing updates with new features, content, and bug fixes. This idea isn't free plat. It's "easier plat". What I was simply thinking at first was a way to exchange gold for plat. Say 1 plat = 1000g. I mean, You wouldn't go bankrupt or anyhting because it's still hard to get gold and people would still buy some gold/plat packs.
But then, I read some suggestions and some of your comments on these suggestions and I can see that you might not want to make this idea come true. So then, I thought of something different. Let me explain first. In the shop there are many items that cost plat. I , personnally, would really like to be able to buy one of these items one day, but clearly I won't be able to. I could buy gold/plat packs but I don't have a credit card (I'm only a kid -.-) and my parents don't trust online payments and stuff. So... instead of buying plat and then buying these items, I thought maybe just set a price in gold for plat items. For example : 10 000g for lawyercat spawner that usally cost 10 plat.
AND THEN, I thought of a problem that might happen. If this problem came to your mind too, don't worry, I've got it covered. The problem would be an overload of new towns and dungeons created by players. The solution would be simply make the world larger OR make town stones cost 50 plat (50 000g) instead of the usual 10 plat (10 000g).
Anyways, all I really want is to get plat items without having to pay. You could at least try to think of a way yourself if my ideas don't suit you.
I hope you will consider this and I understand if you can't make it happen.
It’s possible I might eventually support an auction house as suggested elsewhere so it’s easier for players to trade gold for someone else’s plat, but I’m not going to offer free plat myself. I am looking at alternate payment mechanisms, including cash cards you can buy in grocery stores, or even BitCoin.
