    Angry iotm is 1 item why make 4 items

    IOTM is item of the month. Not items of the month so why you make 4 colors. Plz stop making 4 colors or if u want 4 colors make it like will of the wild u tap to equip again and get another color dont make 4 items its 1 item. When you saw the preview of Riding Worldlock you thought hmmm if they do the 4 item colors thing again maybe they make riding worldlock diamondlock emeraldlock rubylock but noooo its trails different colors ***? that iotm would be much better as just 1 item, why you drag and make 4 different items for different trails, just 1 item + + stop making 4

    More colours = Increased sales.

    Increased sales = less gems

    The rest is common sense.



    Also I prefer having more colours, it gives me a wider range of choice as a consumer.

    Why do we have different colours of T- shirts in real life?


    Also were the emojis at the end really necessary?

    The reason why this is a part of the game is "Currency Void", which helps with infaltion.
    People throw gems to the store, making gems less and less, etc.

    makes the item more universal, one might have a red set so they'd want a red version of the item, but if there was only one version of it, they'd not get that choice

    Agree, 4 colors of iotm is a bad idea also nowadays the iotm just common effects, nothing special like royal lock, magplant, or growscan

    that is what iotm for, you can see how all the items you mentioned breaks the game economy right

    IOTM is actually for cosmetic purposes, and not for breaking the game economy in terms of usefulness.

    Local stores like Walmart do not have spinning russian roulette wheels with different colors on the "barrel" pointed toward your head and we both know that. This is called gambling, and in the gaming community "loot boxing". Which is illegal in certain areas btw.

    How is it gambling when the IOTM system has already been changed to equal chances of getting the 4 colors

    Because it's still random as to which one you get. Yeah the chances are equal, but that doesn't remove the random factor.

    Suppose we load our russian roulette "wheel" with 3 blanks, 3 goodies. Somebody's still going to get the goodies, and somebody's still going to get the blanks.

    Back in my day we didn't even have IOTM. You should be glad it exists at all. You don't want variety hop in a time machine and go back in time.

    I hope they make every IOTM pink or yellow just to spite you.

    I fail to see a valid argument in this. What is your point?

    If your point is that gambling should be illegal, it's growtopia's game, not ours. It's clearly a game designed to make money on their part, and it's perfectly fine on their part.

    And no one is telling you to buy the ITOM for gems, you can alternatively buy it for wls.

    Also, please do share from which areas in the world it's illegal to buy stuff from games. I'd love to hear all about this.

    If we are going the “loot box method” then growtopia as a game is illegal lol, (Valentines, ghost packs, blue Ances farming, acctualls wait farming in general in some situations, fossils, school packs (The new school boy/girl outfits), Halloween) My point is that if you complain about one aspect like the IOTM being randomized you have to complain about everything else not just that one aspect... And currently I think the new 4color system is fine since it stops absurd amounts of gems staying in the economy and it makes Ubisoft money which keeps the servers up...

    First off, gambling IS "illegal" inside the game.

    Second off, the term is LOOT BOXING.

    Third, it's not "illegal", it's ILLEGAL, as in it doesn't matter WHOSE game it is, it's still beeping illegal. Loot boxing has been a big controversy lately and we're not going to pretend it's the same thing as leisurely "buying stuff from games".

    In different areas, loot boxing is either banned, or highly frowned upon. If not banned, companies are being pressured into displaying the odds of "winning". Now, we can be fair and say the odds for each color is 1/4, but the company would still be at fault for not directly displaying the odds.
