The price of uniqueness...

ViperHoundzViperHoundz glendale, AZPosts: 46Member

I had a little idea floating araound in my head, that could potentially increase box sales and add a little uniqueness to the MMO players. I will try to use Starwars and naruto as a starting point.

Say in "star wars galaxies" 1 out of every 10 boxes sold the purchasees' acct is flagged for the "force" Meaning any character on this acct has "force" powers..

In Naruto 1 out of 10 boxes sold, the acct might have tailed beast sealed in side every character made.

I hope you kind of understand where I was trying to go with this, would you as a mmo gamer pay for a chance of uniqueness?

 It is basically a lottery system for uniqueness and unique abilites.

    No. Then I would have to buy the game over and over until I got it.

    Don't think it would work for a mainstream themepark MMO. Look what happened to SWG when it tried to cater to the mainstream crowd. They made Jedi a selectable class.

    Want to be unique? Mix match armour instead of relying on the dungeon ones.

    I got a mesmer that looks like a swordsman.

    I got a work in progress elementalist that will look like a winged monster.

    And currently a work in progress caveman with bone weapons.

    The last thing we need is more cash gambling on games.

    I have an entitlement delusion - because I have this strange idea that my 50$ should have the same value as anyone else's 50$
    "Your account is not entitled to the same value as a new account. Just saying you are entitled to the same as someone else because you said so is exactly what expresses your entitlement issues."

    Or go the other direction and every 1/10 copies gives you only gimped characters that are unique because you are missing ablities everyone else has.  Wouldn't that be sweet!  :p

    The Idea is good but sadly it sucks if you can't obtain the same thing ingame.

    If it's not broken, you are not innovating.
