Thread: A change to the Magplant function

  1. #1

    Default A change to the Magplant function

    Hi, I would like to suggest making Magplants provide only one remote. Afterall, it does not make sense for Magplants to be remote-making machines... they should be a farming tool, not a remote factory!

    This way, all of the other functions of the magplant will still remain, so there's no harmful changes and it will still be useful.

    This may cause the price of Magplants to dip a bit as BFGs close down and also make it difficult for auto-farmers.

    I mean, BFG is kinda game breaking. The part of Growtopia is to grow our own money, not rely on others' resources. This may also reduce BFG scams (pay room for farm).

    I hope that the ubi-team will put this into consideration.

    I don't get your point.

    As in only one person can have the remote at a time.

    Currently, the Magplants give unlimited remotes to anyone.

    except you ain't gonna have much resources when you play for the first time. What are you gonna do, beg?
    Most lower class massing items have supply>demand ratio.
    Most sustainable, time-worthy farmables are 40+ rarity
    Working as a breaker has a potential of being scammed
    Growtopia is hard already on noobs, I don't think we need to gatekeep new people from the game by limiting their game experience
    Can't find motivation to life. Ugh.

    First of all, it is a harmful change. The unlimited remote is part of the intended magplant feature in the first place, same goes to BFG. The magplant price will drop drastically, not a bit. Yes we grow our own money but by relying on other player’s sources too. Otherwise how else are we gonna get farmables if we shouldn’t rely on others to farm them and sell the excess right?

    BOI, if this happens then a HUGE part of the economy will be ruined! People who run Free BFG would be SCREWED, You expect a human to Break four full farms of pepper in ONE DAY? NO!

    So you'd like BFG worlds to close down with this kind of change? I don't get what you're trying to accomplish since the positives of magplants to the lower class players weigh more than the negatives. It provides them a chance to earn gems and wls just by breaking the farmables provided by BFG worlds.

    No harmful changes? You're not only affecting BFG worlds, you're also affecting the thousands of new players or lower class players who rely on BFGs to get their gems.

    I strongly disagree on your suggestion of nerfing the magplant. The effect the magplant has in the farming community is quite huge. Making the magplant only usable to one person will bring down the economy a lot, not only affecting its own price but also rayman and farmables may rise/drop since owners usually don’t farm it themselves. In my time being involved with BFG I’ve seen little to none scams of it as both breakers and owners seem respectful towards eachother. Many new players doing BFG will benefit a lot from these worlds and get a better start. There’s a lot more issues within Growtopia at the moment so changing the magplant’s function would be the least of Ubisoft’s worries.

    They're just bots anyway, they can just set up in 7 different worlds and run 7 bots at once. Or just one bot, it doesn't matter how long it takes because they're not there anyway.

    Chill guys... this is just a suggestion and your opinions are greatly appreciated.
    If you think about who in the world breaks their farmables by themselves, then what about who breaks other people's farmables that they don't even own?
    This is slavery!
    It's way better to own your own farmables, at your own pace, and farm them.

    Unless if you say the goal of Growtopia is to farm all day... then we should change our slogan to Break, Place, Plant: a replica of your boring cycle of life.

    How did the poor get rich? Did Ubimumu go to BFGs to prosper in-game? What are the chances for new players to find a BFG world? What impression does it leave on new players when they hear about needing to break things montonously?

    This suggestion will balance out Magplants to be more in-level of what an IOTM should be, not super over-powered.
    This way items like the Unstable Tesseract can catch up, if not make a new item that works like the Magplant now, so that BFG does not die and you can still produce more of such machines. This also allows Growtopians to be more motivated in the role quests.

    For those that said that as a BFG owner, there were no scams - you can simply search up YouTube for BFG trolls where people lose their gems they work hard to break for.
    Isn't that a waste of other people's time?

    This update should not also be immediate, an advanced announcement should be given for BFG owners to be more prepared for the update. I mean, a couple of remotes less shouldn't hurt Growtopia.

    Remember, the part of Growtopia is to explore - research on what the economy needs, mass farm them and get rich even quicker... it does not have to be BFGs.

    If this current Magplant continues, in the long run, IOTM will not meet the standards of the Magplant and people will question about Ubisoft's ability to balance out the updates.

    I mean, just look at the more recent IOTMs. If not, the Growscan. People compare them with the Magplant and IOTM becomes extremely unbalanced in terms of price and the expectations for IOTM will rise, causing much more disappointment when something super cool, but "useless" comes out.

    Magplants will be extremely difficult to obtain too and eventually be wiped out of the economy as more BFGs are set-up, making it more restricted for newer players to enjoy such luxury.

    I know that there will be disagreements but afterall, this is a discussion. No hard feelings

    They will run out of farmables without the remote.

    Ehh. I stopped reading here. Lol what, Slavery? Some people even pay rent just to break better farmables. I don't know if you've ever experienced owning a BFG or renting or breaking for free but you didn't see the fine print in our points that IT IS AN EFFICIENT WAY FOR NOOBS TO EARN THEIR WAY OUT OF POVERTY, IT'S A GOOD START FOR THEM

    BFG makes things easier since noobs get to buy farmables when they earn enough out of BFGs. It's a win-win situation for both the owner and the renter.

    Must it be strictly such farming to get anywhere far?
    How about mass farm? They are great in starting to go anywhere and to grow your money. It also helps the community and vend worlds.

    Investments can also be part of it.

    Why only BFG? And the point here is not killing BFG, but address the issue of auto-farmers.

    This nerf will encourage people to learn about the current economy and meet the supply and demands. This nerf also encourages trading and socialising, rather than being kept in a tiny space, farming. Also encourages owners to play Growtopia more rather than go offline while the BFGs are running.

    I do agree that BFG is helpful to a certain extent, but it may be harmful to Magplants in the long run when BFG owners quit and the price for Magplants becomes extremely pricey, especially with the fact that the supply is already very limited. Then nobody would be selling Magplants anymore and the market for Magplants will suffer. The players in the future will suffer.
    The price of farmables are already dropping because not much people needs to own farmables anymore. Inflation is already happening. This is why you don't really profit from selling farmables during Harvest Fest as well last year.
    The nerf to the Magplant still remains the purpose it should serve - collect blocks straight from the Magplant and place/plant them, and collect items dropped from trees/blocks.
