    Default Ubisoft, you can’t pick WOTDs and it feels awful.

    Your decision making is so poor that a toddler can do it. WOTDs hardly feels like a community factor but more of a Developer-side preferance. The worlds you pick are uninspiring and trash. They are all the same and show the true problem with world building.

    Nobody cares about an irrelevant trophy that does nothing and proves nothing since around 2000 has been given away. They provide no worth and are usually sold off for the world’s cost.

    As an avid world builder and knowledge in this area, please listen to me so the fate of world building is not dismal, you do care about your game’s health? Then listen.

    Picking an inspiring, interesting and beautiful world every day is hard because demand exceeds production. These quality, award-worthy worlds take time to craft and thus cannot be made so quickly and proficiently. You need to understand this. Picking a world of the day every single day is unhealthy as these poor worlds you have to choose since nothing can top the standard is damaging the reputation of building and causing players to build cheap, ugly and typical worlds that reply old aspects: copied pixel art, race worlds, monotonous parkour, monochromatic worlds, poor story telling, etc. It is uninviting to go to a world to see poor grammar, boring play aspects and the same design over and over again.

    A majority of the player base don’t invest time practising world building, or even care about how their worlds look. This is because you don’t capitalise on it and let the idea die. You update the game with wonderful blocks and mechanics yet they are overshined by the whole idea of the new gameplay feature. Even worse, you reward the blocks so greedily that they become really expensive and undesirable to the lower class players, who coincidentally are the most likely to be intrigued in building for WOTDs where they are limited to building blocks by the cost factor. Similarly, blocks like the howler, high level cyblocks and more are all very expensive and thus hardly used. This way you go about things is so distasteful it really does ask if you actually want players to use the blocks you offer them since they all have disgusting price tags. Not a lot of players are rich, and sadly, most would rather spend their world locks on looking over-the-top ‘pretty’ instead of wasting their time making a world, or WOTDS where nobody actually acknowledges WOTDs.

    The fact games like Minecraft and other build-heavy games are so successful and inspiring to consider their crafting of blocks n’ such an art form is that they allow the players to be freely creative via easy access to amassed building through unlimited items, or due to a generous supply.

    I doubt you’ll take action on anything I proposed since you’re too busy getting hacked again, and the fact I’ve said this so many times I can recite it off by heart. Fix your game instead of layering it with sugarcoated updates that are retextures of old features and become obsolete after a few weeks.

    World of the day could be straight around turned into world-that-we-highly-advertise-of-however-many-days-we-feel-like-to, being supported with a tiny showcase video on the YouTube channel, super broadcasts and other stuff made by a group of devs. Aaaaaaand yeah, the trophy selling bastards have driven it far enough to make the whole thing untradeable.

    If WOTDs which used to be packed only get 4 people at a time in it, they're obviously doing something wrong.

    ubisoft does choose good worlds too, but once in a blue moon.
    anyway I'm sure back then expectations were low and the building blocks weren't out of question for people generally, whereas today making a world out of old blocks is trite and builders must come up with worlds using new blocks, which are badly priced.

    the choosing is the same, seth or ubi. It's just ubi killed the wotd mechanics with expensive blocks and the daily nature of wotd resulting less and less good nominees.

    suggestion would be to choose the worlds less often-once a week or so to increase both the quantity and the quality of the worlds being nominated, and increase accessibility to the building blocks.
    I crave for attention so don't give me any

    I should make a crap WOTD and then give the trophy back to Ubisoft to hand them a fat L.

    Honestly I used to visit WOTDs back in the day when they were good.

    By that I mean a few years ago.

    The thing is we're getting very few submissions recently and perhaps not a lot of them are as good as from the years back. It's hard to select when there are hardly any other choices in the official WOTD Forum Thread.

    However, do submit your nominations to me or if you find a good one encourage them to nominate their world so we could discover them too!

    then you could probably expand the duration between the winners? Like once/twice every week or so. Would help greatly and solve the problems you just listed.

    I do know that you're just choosing off a limited list of nominees with new submission once every few days or so, and that would make the quality drop drastically.

    I really respect that you guys are active and are adapt to changes, now if only you could implement some of these suggestions: either to choose a world every few days or to change how people get building blocks.

    (one example is Tournament blocks - you guys are wasting your hard labor! All the work to design those beautiful blocks goes into oblivion because they're practically impossible to be obtained in large enough quantities)

    (a good example of easy accessibility is the dimension blocks! Good price to sustain the rarity AND large quantities for desirable buildings at a time, great mechanics)

    If you would actually read the whole thread you’d discuss about the issues I outline, this just proves you read the title and not the whole thread. I said make it World of the week or so, improve access to blocks and make winning more desirable with a new reward system. Building is a core aspect to Growtopia yet it is ignored because of its fashion.

    I swear every time I offer feedback you ignore everything and don’t discuss your views on my views. This is why we get nowhere.
