Haven’t played realm in months now. I’ve been mainly playing a private server atm, because rotmg is becoming more p2w and I’m a poor starving high school boi. So I had a simple suggestion.
I feel most people are quitting because of lack of character slots and vault chests. A lot of people do not spend money on the game (I think), and when they do, buying something like a char slot is kinda expensive (not really). It’s like 5 dollars (not really sure) for a char slot.
So I had a simple suggestion. Every month or so, you would be given a quest. The quest would be pretty annoying/hard to complete. The rewards would be either a vault chest or char slot.
I feel like this would be good addition to the game because with the addition of this quest, non p2w players could have a chance at getting a char slot and vault chest, 2 of the most important things about realm by far. By making it a quest that you could complete once a month or so, I believe it wouldn’t really mess up the buying char slots and vault chests aspect of the game (I think). But at the same time, more f2p players would stay. I myself have been a f2p player for 1 year, then I quit. The main reason I quit was because once you die, you have to completely restart. There are no backups, and there are no ways to rebuild other than doing the hours of regrinding pots. After a while, this can get really annoying. Which is why I ended up moving to a pserver.
There are things that you can pay for which can make playing easier, but the main thing is that you can buy char slots and vault chests with fame. By doing this, you don’t have to spend hours grinding pots to max a character, you would have a backup. But ofc, if you make char slots and vault chests buyable with fame, basically no one will spend money on those 2 items. Also, with vault chests, you could store more things rather than having to be forced to drop them like I used to have to do. On the pserver I play on, I asked some of my guildies why they quit, and most said because the game was becoming too p2w. (Though I don’t have pictures, so if I ever need pictures, then I’ll get some.)
Although Deca is money hungry (not really. Also pls don’t flag me ) I feel like something as small as a monthly quest could be good to add if they want to maintain a decent sized player base. When I play rotmg, I don’t really see any new players which I will assume is because of the fact that dying and spending hours grinding pots is tedious. Though I only looked for like 10 minutes, and they probably just quit cause they keep dying and can’t maintain a regular 0/8 character. I myself know that I would definitely play rotmg if they somehow added a way to get a char slot and vault chest without spending money. (Like the daily login rewards and the last day had the char slot and vault chest. That was pretty cool).
This was just a small suggestion that I had on my mind for the past 2 weeks. If this was already suggested, then mb, I didn’t take the time to look for anything like this. Also, I know someone is going to say something like “just use money.” Please don’t? Idk it’s your choice
Also hell yeah, long post. Also there are probably grammar and spelling errors, but oh well. I don’t really wanna reread everything cause I’m really tired. jk, I’m just lazy
