    Default Confused by Ubisoft's choices

    How was adding console exclusive items okay? Having Ubisoft rewards for console but not PC/mobile??? It's making the game unfair for everyone NOT on console. I just want to know what they're thinking because they've barely explained anything that we want to know. In my eyes, they want money and having 2 NEW servers along with paid ubisoft rewards is a giant money grab to people both with and without consoles.

    Well the Ubisoft Club Rewards won’t transfer over to PC/Mobile so I think it’s balanced. I don’t think the items are too good but the 9,000 gems reward is necessary for new players and a growing economy.

    That's what I'm saying; console exclusive items aren't fair at all. People that want those items can't have them because they aren't using the right device?? The items don't have to be good, it's still not fair all around.

    And it seems unfair to Nintendo Switch players because Xbox One players get 800 gems every day.

    Saying Sony doesn't allow crossplay was a bad excuse because PS4 version was going to have its own server anyway. Xbox and Switch version should use PC/Mobile servers.

    The main servers can't handle two other consoles.

    Xbox and Switch should be cross platform with mobile/pc servers. Ps4 honestly shouldn't even be included since they're so keen on not allowing cross platform, but what do I know.

    That's why they should've gone back to the basics and fixed the one thing people have BEEN complaining about on pc/mobile; the servers. This is a mess and extremely disappointing. Ubisoft is slowly ruining this game.

    I personally see the console exclusive items as an incentive to try out the console servers. As of right now, console Growtopia is a straight downgrade from PC/Mobile Growtopia (Literally, the last update console Growtopia is on is Block Party 2 (April 2019)), so it makes sense for them to have exclusive rewards as an incentive.

    Plus, nothing's stopping them from implementing Ubisoft Club to the main server so people on the main can get the items as well in the future.

    Sure, they could easily implement the ubisoft club to pc/mobile, but they haven't given any incentive on doing so. I personally just don't see console growtopia as a good idea unless Switch and Xbox use same server as mobile/pc, along with Ps4 version not existing as Playstation isn't keen on crossplay.

    Maybe the reason they added new items for the 3 console platforms is because they want to encourage people to try playing on consoles? Just a thought.

    But it would’ve been a much cheaper option to upgrade their servers. Mobile players are now capped at 45k I guess forever. Now that they have 2 separate servers maybe more including alternate servers, they have more jobs to do. Maybe they have a whole seperate team for the console version but I think a combined server is a much better option.

    I do however like that everything’s freshly new for the console players but they should’ve named it a different version of Growtopia like Growtopia Lite so they could increase more popularity for the mobile version.

    There are like 1,000 console players or less than that right now. I don't think the server won't be able to handle some more amount of players.

    I generally think it's a unfair advantage to players that k own what they are doing and new players that don't.
    Also unfair on players that have played a long time.
    What happens to our grow IDs? Can they be used?
    What if Xbox and switch users want to cross platform to mobile?

    The real question is will mobile and pc ever be allowed onto this new server?
    Loads of people have asked for a new server and they give it to Xbox and switch.

    I don't know just seems silly, 1k players on there I bet 90% are old players from mobile I'd love to see the statistics of the new players vrs old players on there because I bet there isn't that many new and the old will be locking world's and the new ones like what the hell!

    There are exclusive items such as Unicorn and Energy Drink. You can redeem some items with Ubisoft Club units.
    New console players can redeem 9,000 gems for free via Ubisoft Club.

    While it's true that these items make the Console version a little unique but take into account that the PC & Mobile version has plenty that remains unique also! For instance, the IOTMs that probably will not make a come back in the console version.
