Hey everybody. Obviously a lot of major changes have been happening to the game lately, those of which I am quite pleased with. But something that I feel like has gone under the radar yet again is the redundancy of Guild Fame. Added over 8 years ago, the only use it has ever had is to upgrade the guild hall to make it a bit bigger along with a few neat little things (like the training targets or secret room). The problem is, once the guild hall is fully upgraded (which doesn’t take long at all), guild fame is essentially useless.
I feel like the best implementation for guild fame would be to have guild keys be obtainable through guild fame. I understand that DECA wishes to incentivize more guild teamwork, and guild-only keys have been used in the past before, just not with guild-fame. I don’t think that they should spawn the little chest (unless of course there’s an event going on like what originally happened with them), but should simply be purchasable with guild fame and only be usable in the guild hall.
Now the biggest concern that comes with this is the fact that people in active guilds could simply buy the keys and essentially have free dungeons earned from other people’s dedication to the game. This can easily be combated however, by making it so there needs to be a certain amount of people currently inside the guild hall in order to use the key. Maybe 5 people for smaller dungeons, like Davys or OTs, and 10-15 people for bigger ones, like Shatters or Lost Halls.
With this concept, essentially 2 birds are killed with 1 stone, in the sense that not only does guild fame have an actual permanent use now, but guilds have more reason to plan activities with each other and farm dungeons together, forming more of a bond in the process. As for prices, that is not for me to decide, as I am not a developer and simply just a long time player giving a mild suggestion.
As always, thoughts and feedback is appreciated, along with other suggestions for guild fame use. I notice that there have been a few threads covering this topic in the past, but the most recent one was over 3 years ago, and seeing how the situation is still the same, clearly it might be worth talking about again
