Thread: Have more than one "Extra" task available in Regattas

  1. #1

    Have more than one "Extra" task available in Regattas

    We should be able to purchase more than one extra task during the regatta. This can be handled exactly as it is now: a button "Purchase T$10". After that task, instead of "all tasks have been completed", display the button again. Perhaps the second extra task could be more than T$10. for example,

    First extra task = T$10 (as it is now)
    Second = T$15
    Third = T$20
    Fourth = T$25
    Fifth = T$30

    etc.

    There could be no limit to the additional tasks a player could purchase. This would result in a huge income for Playrix as the more competitive players would spend huge amounts to keep playing the Regatta that week. All of the results calculations, buoy levels, and reward crate levels can remain the same as they are now.

    This would have the additional benefit to the players, because if a player messes up (accidentally choosing the wrong task, or a task expires by accident) they could compensate for it by purchasing extra task(s).

    It should be a lot higher than what we got, i've been in other teams that half of them inc leader don't race, so the other half that is racing can't get very far in the race because of the others doing nothing. So if we had more tasks to do we could carry on with the team that is racing to get the points up.

    It would also tempt a lot of players to spend money that would be better used in the real world. As it stands, all co-ops have an equal opportunity to win if the group is playing as a team. If non-racing players don't opt out, then that needs addressing by the leaders.

    I agree. The regatta, like everything, requires a bit of thought and planning. Allowing people to buy more tasks to overcome mistakes , or so they can do more lower point tasks, seems to take away from this.

    I agree! Letting people buy more tasks hands the victory to those willing to pay the most for it. Keep it the way it is!

    I don't like this idea either. Plus, some players might find the weekly 10 Tcash expense we already have to be a hardship. Not all players are sitting around with piles of Tcash to spend.

    Ideas That Cannot Be Implemented At This Time (Or Ever)

    Keep it fair. Not everyone wants to spend real money to play a free game! There was an idea I read in another thread a few days ago that I liked tho! Sharing your "tasks left" with other team members that have finished theirs already. Some people have Fulltime jobs (or in some case several jobs)... Some just aren't good at multitasking... Some just have a life in the real world (husbands, kids, hobbies...) and want this to be a relaxing get away not just one more challenge to overcome! But if we could give some of our tasks say to leader to divvy up amongst the others that have the time or interest, well it would actually make it more fair because the rest would stand a better chance at keeping up with the other teams in the race!

    Now that sounds REALLY good!
