    Default Item of the Months.

    What is with all these RNG IOTM's? Like, trying to get the rarest one is basically gambling away your gems, and it clearly says in the games rules that, "Gambling is not allowed." But then Ubisoft turns around and breaks their own rules. It's pretty stupid if you ask me.

    Reply to this thread if you want, I'd love to hear other people's opinions on this.

    I didn't like it since the February iotm. This is absurd. The rarest colour also has an unstable price. There's no difference with rayman or magplant. Take the golden drone for example. It rose up to 20+ dls at one point. But people are still complaining how rayman is 20dls. It doesn't make sense. Since its purpose is to lower down iotm prices and it isn't working. Remove the feature already. (I'm using too many full stops)

    Yes the item of the month items that has the colors are based on luck. There is a change to get the rarest ones But here is the thing. They are 200k gems each and average growtopian doesnt have more than that, alot less. So people can buy maybe 1 or 2 but They cannot get more from store, they still can get profit by selling the item immediately even if the color was bad because the prices are very high when they come out so you can't lose that much.

    Many activities in Growtopia are a gamble, just that they don't cost a lot for you to gain some back (Unlike in casinos you could lose your entire networth in a snap)

    I think the reason they banned Casinos from Growtopia is because of the fact that some people get really disappointed after losing their wls

    If you really want a IOTM with the color you desire, just buy it for some world locks, they usually go down by a lot as time goes

    By the way, Seth and Ham also made a ton of gambling features too, just because Ubisoft took over doesn't mean you should throw them any unnecessary hate lol
    I LOVE GROWTOPIA

    Sis im just speak what Im believe in its not like im giving information on negative things. And I believe they changed the iotm to rng colour instead since they dont want to make same mistake like Rayman and Magplant.

    We didn't want item of the months to be unique and special, thus this happened.

    If you don't get what I mean, sometime back before the multiple items thing iotms were all made to be unique items with a unique feature. GRazor wings had the slash and the expanding effect, dracoscarf had strong break on a scarf, sorcerers tunic gave the colour change plus punch, growformer gave the transforming, Shadow spirit gave the head and pet in one, and others like wotw and growscan are self explanatory. Arnd last year when people started to notice the insane rise of magplant and Rayman, people started to complain, saying how iotms shouldn't be this good/special. Thus, starting from next year with the release of the golden drone, iotms became pretty normal items with 4 versions.

    I agree, but similarly to most of growtopia’s limited item packs, they are rng and only the lucky make a nice profit off of buying them, and even if you don’t do it for profit, you lose wls anyways. They gotta make money somehow, even if it’s by players buying gems to test their rng luck

    Life is a gamble,we don’t always get what we want.
    Some people are lucky,some people arent.
    Some become jealous,some become pleasant.
    In the end,life is just a game.

    Seriously,things are only expensive because it’s rare and people desire to have it.The RNG system in iotm I say merely a boost to attract players.Its also laughable that I’m seeing people call iotms “ugly”,”lazily designed”,simply due to the fact they don’t like it or it doesn't looks like some fancy ass ****.
    But well,this is the internet,not like my opinion is even comparable to them,right?

    Would be fine if they just removed the rare color. It makes all the other colors pretty much worthless. Except for this iotm, would be nice to have one of those but yellow and huge.

    People often get confused with comparing rules and features (or whatever). You gamble your wls, your stuff goes to another person. You buy stuff from the store, your gems doesn't exist anymore and it's sacrificed, that's not gambling at all hence there's nobody will acquire what you spent.

    Yup. You’re totally right. They should’ve released raymen and magplants in 4 different colours too.

    Pretty sure the game itself revolves around gambling even if they try their best to distance themselves from that. I mean, think about it, you're basically using let's say, a summer surprise or a Super firework. You're basically giving your trust into RNGesus to hope to get a very rare prize, then you just got a sandcastle, which then you'll feel bad about it, since you bought it for some amount of currency. What I'm trying to say is, gambling is basically unavoidable even if you try and distance yourself from it.

    Would try to help whenever possible,except for trying to be social,of course.
