Thread: Why has the subscriber monthly item name changed?

  1. #1

    Angry Why has the subscriber monthly item name changed?

    As of yesterday the name of the item was "Maskie Hoodie". You could see this in the news as well as on the wiki. Two worlds were locked by a mod, "Buymaskie" as well as "Buymaskiehood". Seeing this in the news I thought like any good growtopian lets go get a buy+ world. So I ended up buying the world "Buymaskies" for 20 diamond locks. Even if you don't think this was a good purchase the point is that the mods changed the name of the item. So... item names can change now? Now that the item has a new name there is absolutely no reason for anyone to come to my world. The name is no longer valuable and my DLS gone. I know I will not be refunded or anything because GT doesn't do that i'm just hoping this doesn't happen in the future so someone like me who buys a world innocently is backstabbed by GT.

    Yes and they always have a risk of changing. This isn’t the first time that this is happening, it happened last month with the Traxy Scraf which later got changed into Scarfy Scarf

    Though I definitely understand your frustration, I would be mad too, I don’t think the growtopia team will do anything to change the situation you’ve been put in :/

    That's kind of a bad move by the developers. They get a whole month to think of a name, and i don't see what's wrong with the name "Maskie hood". Sorry devs, but that's trashy.

    The thing is one of the previous winners took advantage of this and made a huge profit. We created this contest to give subscribers a chance to design their item in the game however it is still against the game rules to profit from it.

    And like I said in another thread:

    We made a deal with the SUBSCRIBER ITEM DESIGNER that we will not give him a chance to name his item so he can't own the BUY WORLD and profit from it. He agreed to this term. It is unfair to the SUBSCRIBER ITEM WINNER (Placental) if the others will profit from his item design because their BUY WORLD has the same name as his designed item. He won the contest fair and square and we did not give him a chance to own the WORLD NAME of his item.
