    Default Stop Selecting Pixel Art WOTDs.

    It has been expressed by multiple players for months now, and it is in fact becoming ridiculous, but stop selecting pixel art WOTDs. Despite hearing from certain Ubisoft staff their dislike to pixel art worlds and their wish for the WOTD system to be changed, they continue to select them! By doing so, they have ultimately caused a few things to occur:

    1. Every world now includes pixel art as people feel it is a requirement OR place it to fill space in order to win.
    2. People easily win WOTD, usually being a profit method.
    3. The concept of WOTD becoming ruined by these horrible worlds.
    4. The belief that it is “ok” to copy work from either the internet or others and put it in their world.

    I realize there isn’t much to select from, but as a staff member with at least some power, they can simply not select pixel art WOTDs. I’d much rather go three days with a non-pixel art WOTD than ever see another pixel art. They are almost always copied, atrociously made in-game, and provide no aspect of “fun”. I also realize that WOTDs have become less prestigious, and there is the argument by another developer about how “children work hard to produce these worlds”, but it is usually abused. Simple solution, stop promoting pixel art worlds by selecting them in the first place.

    Edit directly to the staff choosing WOTDs: many players have reached out to you asking to help you select WOTDs, take them up on that, it’ll make your life easier. And yes, I get there is a lack of power, but you’re still a valued staff member, try to force some change in the office please.

    Couldn't agree more. They even said they don't choose plain pixel art worlds but sometimes they did.

    How about letting people vote for WOTDs?

    Seems like a great idea but it wouldn't work well. People would vote for their favorite YouTubers.

    Yeah but Ubistaff could see the top 10 most voted worlds and decide themselves which is the best?

    Well i get that pixel art is very unfair but it is also just because not all good builders can build a quality world constantly, plus there arent that many good or least decent builders who doesnt effortlessly build a world for the sake of trophy.

    Blocks, well the building material gave a boost thanks to the new machine but yeah, the number of people who build worlds is just, yeah. And remember, they said that they dont pick a world with the same owner. They give it a cooldown of a 1-4 weeks before that same dude can get wotd again.

    Voting systems almost always fail in being fair and legitimate.

    Back in the 2018 kyderby poll, people are not happy about the chosen worlds and so does the votings, in which all selected by the community. Completely flawed.

    IMO some pixel art is fine, but if it fills up the entire world it probably shouldn't be WOTD. (Or course there are some exceptions)

    So pretty much every pixel art WOTD. It is very rare these days to find an original pixel art. Everything is either taken directly from google images, resized, and pixelated or copied.

    From past, i doubt with their argument when saying this fact " We will decrease picking the mostly un-pixelated world ". But, they still repeat.


    Bluragon's can go anywhere, if i will on there, don't get surprised.

    Well, the hope is that these worlds are actually ignored, and there is at least a little effort in finding worlds that don’t copy pixel art.

    Maybe actual non copied pixel art could be considered
    If you feel like you got banned without a reason, then contact Growtopia Support, be sure to provide as many details as possible to make it easier for them to understand the issue, so they could help you.
