    Default How to fix the 4-color RNG IOTM

    How to fix the 4-color RNG IOTM:

    Easy, make all 4 colors have equal chances of obtaining. No more rare, and less rare.

    Actually i like current rng system, because if we check the One colour Items, for example Go-Go-Growformer! It's just 40 World Locks(The others are the same price)

    But with current rng system, At least we have a chance to get something expensive.

    See, you only care about the profit. Think about the people who actually want the IOTM because they think it looks cool or whatever, but their favourite colour happens to be the rare variant.

    What People nowadays think :
    Can't be a profit = Bad IOTM

    I think IOTM going to cheaper and cheaper is normal. Just look at Hovernator Drone - Golden & Dragon Warrior's Shield - Diamond, that two items now is dropping a little bit even though it's RNG IOTM.

    I really miss iotm without RNG. I can accept the iotm without overpower mod. But for RNG, i don't like it.

    I wonder how you came to this conclusion, i just care other player hardworks. Almost all common iotms are 30 or 50wls, but rarest one can increase to 300-600wls. So, i want to ask you. Would you spend your 200k gems for 30wls common item? No, right? There is rarest iotms to increase purchase.

    The multi-color system will appeal to more people. Like, if we get only one colour, probably it would be red one, but what if you don't like red colour?
    But with current system i have 4 different colours to choose from Item of the Month.

    And... For Ubisoft, Please... Make IOTM with good design specially for the rarest one. You make RNG IOTM, and make 1 color be a rarest, but that rarest color item have nothing special? That's not good.

    I rather have it so we could choose the colour we would want to buy or make an item like hair dye which I could apply on my iotm to change the colour of. If the whole point of the iotm is to have a cool item randomizing the colours is not fun and the ethics behinds it is a whole nother story.

    Ubisoft honestly should know better with all these other BIG companies getting busted and shamed for Loot Boxery. How to fix it? Just don't do it.

    The RNG encourages players to buy more gems, they won’t get the rare varient, they’ll want to try it one more time, and then ubisoft will get money. You need to consider marketing too.

    I didn’t say I support them. I merely said that you need to understand what they’re doing before suggesting something that they’ll barely consider because of their loss.

    The goal of iotm is not to profit pal, its made to have a "cool" item every month added to the game. Magplant,rayman,dhorn,zephyr and much more !

    Nonono buddy we want an iotm not 2iotms as 1 is uncompleted and the other one is completed. Promoting gamble should be illegal but beacuse the game does it its now legal.

    When ray and mag comes : Ubisoft,why you add an overpowered IOTM?They break the game, REMOVE THEM !!!

    When they stop making OP IOTM : Why? The IOTM is trash and useless,they only worth less than a DL. Please add more cool item like ray fist!!!!

    When RNG appear in IOTM : Why theres a RNG in the IOTM, i love the red colour but its the rarest one and its cost more than 4DLs. And gambling is illegal. Please remove RNG from IOTM.

    When they remove the RNG : Where is the red colour? Why theres only blue colour? I dont like it. Please add red colour!!!

    It is definitely not 25% chance, that would mean that there is same ammount of all iotms because all have same chance to get, which is definitely not right, I would say that the rare iotm have 1-5% chance.

    What you are saying it completely right, but this 'problem' (idk if it's problem for ubisoft) could be fixed easily, just have the same system but without the rare one, all same % drop chance, or just let us choose what colour to buy from the shop, or better (unlikely to happen) have few colours in one item, unequipping and equipping the item chances the colour (same as Diamond Horns).

    i kinda agree with your idea, but i think ubisoft's marketing definitely already calculate what will happen to their in-game purchase if they do that

    Lightbulb I've got an idea...

    What about making an IOTM with 4 coloured variants but the rarest one has a Better Design plus an useful mod?

    For example:

    Astro Shades - Red should have a different design from the other astro shades AND it's Enhanced Digging effect will stack with other Enhanced Diggings OR It could give a buff regarding Startopia, since it's "Astro"-related.

    (Yea stacking mods could be too Overpowered )

    What's your opinion on this idea?

    Thanks for reading!

    Well, a correction here.
    x = percentage of getting rare IOTM.
    x < 25.
