    Lightbulb Update idea

    I've noticed that Ubisoft doesn't make a lot of ingame features and they're
    better in community stuff like the economy and balancing items (just set aside the support coz it always sucked)

    An Idea I had in my mind was something that players could compete with each other and an important item ( which u can buy with gems)to join that competition is called "Arcade machine" or "Arcade Station", hence "Arcade Update" (or something within that line)

    How this would work is that when we wrench the Arcade machine/Station, we could play mini-games and we will be required to aim a high score and whoever gets the highest score wins tokens (just like daily challenges but with mini-games and tokens as prizes), and this can be biweekly or daily (depends).

    Also to spice it up, you need a "Flipping Coin" to play a single game just like how arcades do it

    Those tokens can be used to buy items from a person called "Arcademaster", that person is also a traveling salesman just like locke.

    Just a fun little idea I thought of...



    Edits:

    Items and their uses (Visuals Soon)
    "Arcade tokens": can be earned from winning the biweekly/daily challenges and tournaments given by the Arcade Master (50 Daily, 500 for biweekly, 1500 for tournaments)

    "Tournament Ticket" (Untradable): Earned by doing 2 biweekly challenges and is used to join the tournament

    "Arcade Pack" (25,000 Gems),includes:

    -1 Arcade Machine: Is used to play mini-games the "Arcade master" required you to play (has a 30% chance of breaking)

    -3 "Play Coins" (Bronze, Silver, and Gold): Bronze allows you to play 1 game, Silver allows you to play 3 games, Gold allows you to play 5 games. These coins are used to "recharge" your Arcade Machine

    -1 "Gamer glasses": Used to protect your eyes! (Vanity Item)

    -0-1"Life coin": Allows you to continue the game whenever you lose. (50% chance of getting it in the pack)

    -5"Electrical Components": Used when your Arcade Machine breaks

    -0-1 "Personalized Computer": The Arcade Master's rare gift! It allows you to buy prizes from the Arcade Master through the internet! 0.025% of getting it in the pack and can't be used by other players because it's personalized...

    Prizes from the Arcade Master:

    -Modified Joystick (2500 tokens): Gives you double the score whenever you play a game!
    -RGB Lights (1 Token each): Rainbow Lights!!
    -The Arcade Master's lucky coin (500 tokens): Doubles the amount of tokens you earn when winning a tournament (must be used before one, and if you lose the tournament you lose the coin too, so be careful when using one)
    -Gaming Headsets(150 tokens): Look cool and look professional! (Vanity Item)

    (I cant think of more rn but there will be more soon)

    Additional Info:

    Daily challenges are challenges by the Arcade Master like "get a *specific* high score" or "beat this *specific* level"(These challenges are meant to be easy)

    Biweekly Challenges are like doing some goals required by the Arcade master like "Play Growch Kong for 50 times"
    or "Defeat the boss EYE OF GROWGANOTH in the game Monster Invaders 3 times" (These challenges are meant to be hard)

    In the Tournaments (monthly), you need to Finnish 2 biweekly challenges to get the Tournament Ticket and you need to go to the Arcade Master's lounge/world named ARCADETOURNAMENT (world) and players will be competing there, there will be 10 winners and they will be given 1500 Arcade Tokens which they can use to buy items from the arcade master himself or the Personalized Computer. The Top Three will be given 2 life coins, top two 5 life coins, and top 1 ten life coins but they will still get the 1500 tokens.

    yes and no

    sound like a cool concept, but more info required
    at least information with some thought put into it not like 'nerf farmables' (magplant thread)

    what minigames do you have in mind? like parkour? teleports to a world where we have to do blah blah


    also
    will this machine be one time use? or just purchased then you can no life and get best prize etc.

    re-read,
    need to add something besides flipping coin? maybe some type of new currency 'coin'
    like an arcade coin or something

    That my friend is what im working on, im trying to make some visuals for ya'll to understand better, and no those mini-games will not teleport you to a world but into a in-game screen with 8-bit mini games like Pac-man/Super Mario/Donkey-kong but with growtopia impressions, but if the problems are copyright issues then just do something unique.

    25k gems? or 2.5k gems? (you put 25,00)

    joystick is much in favor of rich, will let them dominate early on (ik there is a limit daily but they will 'probably' get max/day and get it before anyone else
    also its just op double the score (basically if you want to get a 'high' score you need it

    cosmetics are eh. rgb lights sounds cool but idk how they would work because gt doesn't really use lights (theyre just yellow eg. street light/ table lamp)

    tournament ticket is already an item, used for grand tournament (pet battles).

    also daily challenges aren't meant to be easy..

    idk how theyd make original games, I'm pretty sure they wont be able to copy games like donkey kong because of copyright (nyan cat hat too)

    Yeah, you're right about the prizes and how unbalanced it is but let's just stick to the concept for now and then do the drops and unbalances/flaws.

    -The joystick could be rebalanced in any ways, remember this is just a concept, Ubisoft can manipulate this in any way
    -Cosmetics/Vanity items, yeah they are just there for, well, fashion.
    -RBG lights would just be like the Neon Light but with the rainbow effect, would be good as a background design for finishing builds AND for a cool looking arcade world.
    -Tournament tickets, well that could be renamed
    -Daily challenges, as I said this is just a concept PLUS my examples is already costly due to the fact that you need coins to play a single game
    -Yeah its 25k sorry for typo

    And yeah about the mini-games, they can easily make something out of their other games like an obstacle side-scroller which Ezio or Altair is the main character or an 8-bit simplified version of Rayman legends.

    It’s a cool idea, but I feel as if this would be abused just like the roulette wheel and casinos. Do you have a plan to avoid your idea being abused by other players?
