    Default R.i.p. Ezcookoven's Robotic Tentacle

    Just some backround info before getting to the main topic.

    When startopia first began, there were/are 2 items that cost 10,000 buckazoids from the Salesman(53785). They were the "Magtron Lightcycle" and "Startopia Empire - Force Shield & Phase Blaster". The Magtron being around 3 dls at the time, Shield and phase blaster being a bit more than 1 dl.

    Now, currently, the Magtron is 12-15 wls, and phase blaster $ shield being 4-8 wls.

    Now lets go to EZCookOven's tentacles. They are currently 10+ dls(I'm basically saying they are over ten). That means they are gonna, no matter how popular, drop faster than my mom dropped m-*COUGH COUGH COUGH*- I mean...uh... really fast. With that being said, lets have a momment of silence for this screenshot.

    If it's just a cosmetic item and it is available all the time, it will really come close to a point where less people demand it and a lot of people have it.

    But, correct me if I'm wrong, sponsored items were meant to be available for everyone, so EzCookOven's sponsored item will be available for average Growtopians in some point in time. And I think these EPIC people want a sponsored item either to put a mark in the game or they just want it .

    So 'RIP Ezcook's item' isn't really necessary true because it is not a Mod item which is to be limited to only a person but for everyone.

    Ignore anything that may or may not be typed there.

    Anyway, it was just added when the Roots update came out. I was just commenting on how the price in buckazoids doesn't seem right when compared to the cost in wls. It is also still a fairly new item, I feel like it is correct to discuss it here. Overall, many threads in Update Discussion are just suggestions at heart. If you don't see it, take a closer look. Besides of the threads asking for teasers or new item recipes, they are all suggestions, bugs, or anything else.

    Well, not really....

    Sponsored items are just meant for the individual person, not specifically for everyone to have.

    True, people like EZCook may want lots of people to have it so he is famous, but I thought that he may want it to of been rarer or something.

    I forgot who sponsored it, but if you take a look at those sponsored wings in balloon wars, those things are hella expensive.





    Edit: Darn it, moved to Value Discussion anyway.

    One of.the sponsored wing is Overoll's Wing and it cost around 80 DLS now. Why? Cuz it's only can be obained on balloon wars event. You can say that this item is limited.
    Different with this tentacle item. It's obtainable whenever you want it if you have enough buckazoids either way this item isn't limited

    Why would an item be more expensive if it's sponsored?

    This is the part I disagree with. In looking at past previously sponsored items, they've all been pretty generally available and almost the entire point is to have players obtain an item that you specifically created. These are not like mod items which are exclusive to the singular player only (excluding ex-mod items)

    Ok, I didn't know how to word it before and I even knew that part you qutoed was sounded wrong/not what I meant exactly.



    If you see the quote I was replying to, that person says the sponsored item is "meant for everyone". I am trying to say that they are not "meant for everyone" but to congratulate EZcook.

    I don't mean that the item should be like a mod's item.

    Don't be sad, robotic tentacle will not drop too much (maybe for 1 year) Still Ripper Wings & Wizard's Staff is the cheapest sponsored item forever.

    Yeah, I did misinterpret it a bit. As for the actual way it is obtained, well I think it's fine. Compared to items like ripper wings, fedora, barky's mask, etc which are also sponsored, I think the ways to obtain it are okay

    Anyway, I don't get the purpose of setting the price to 9000 bucks. After all, Robotic Tentacles drop at a lower rate than Magtron + Shield iirc (I did a lotta growlactuses)
