Hi everyone, hope you all are doing fantastic!
This is something I have been thinking about for a while, and I am curious to know what your thoughts are, I am not sure how this Topic will be received, but as long as I get this out there, I am content, later in this post, I will suggest an alternative that I feel could be good.
So, I think the wheels should be scrapped, serious amounts of coins and real currency are splashed on these wheels just for a chance to get a particular character. They aren’t guaranteed to get that character, but simply a small chance to obtain them.
This is pretty much gambling, as with gambling, you give away something of value that you possess, in the games case, coins, in hopes of getting a payout, which is in this case, a specific character.
This game may be targeted for mature audiences, but we all know that children and people under 18 can access the game, and with the game basically being one big slot machine, it introduces them to gambling, and makes them spend hard earned coins, or even hard earned real life currency, on a chance to get something they want, and whether or not they succeed, it will only drive them to spend more money.
I believe that a good alternative could be to introduce a “Market”. It could be updated every week or so, and have a range of characters that are available to buy with coins, at a fair price, with promo’s being slightly more expensive due to being brand new.
The key point I want to mention in that suggestion is fair pricing, don’t be selling a Gator or something for 2,000 coins. If it is an older character, make them cheaper, if it is a recent character, like Ryan that recently released, then have him be more expensive, but not out of this world expensive. Have character prices gradually decrease overtime so they are eventually obtainable for everyone.
With this, people can save up to buy the character they wish to buy, and not be in fear of spending coins they have been saving for months just to have a chance of obtaining a character.
Anyways, let me know what you think, I believe this could work and would be cool, but I am just a single person, I am curious to know what you all think, have a great day!
