    I've seen a lot of people complain about everyone having to pay 1,000 points for a plot and some people praise it. I have a neutral stance on this and have a compromise for both sides. For every rank, there is a 15% price reduction from the previous rank, except obsidian which has a 30% reduction. These would be the prices:
    Stone: 1,000
    Iron: 850
    Lapiz: 723
    Gold: 614
    Diamond: 522
    Emerald: 444
    Obsidian: 311

    Let me know what you think!

    seems a bit... unfair...
    it would look more like stone ranks have to pay the most because they're not premium

    Some people have been suggesting that ranks should have free plots... this is a balance.

    This was given to donators over a year after the EULA was implemented. I don't think this is as it's not giving anything extra.

    Yeah its not

    The point prices may be cheaper but anyone can get a rank, so it is eula compliant now if say only youtuber rank had this then it be antieula in addition, points are SO easy to get so its not a big deal

    I'd like to see the numbers get rounded to a more appealing looking number. I'd also like the lessening of upgrade prices too.
    But I support this idea 100%

    The EULA applies indefinitely. Yes, it is giving donors extra. Reducing prices causes gameplay unbalance.
    The EULA specifically says you are not allowed to charge for game changing items. Giving features to YouTubers only is in no way against the EULA.

    If this is Eula compliant it is just barely. This is technically an in game advantage and let's take this to the extreme. A factions server sells op swords for an unobtainable amount of money but if you get a rank this extremely op sword now costs $1. That would obviously be against Eula and I think this fits under the same category. Anyway points are very easy to get I earned about 10k just from blockband. Survival games can also give you 1k points in 2 hours if you are good :p

    The EULA is against a "Pay-to-Win" format. This would be "Pay-to-Boost"

    making things cheaper in creative based on rank isnt a game changer because CREATIVE HAS NO ADVANTAGES simple as that

    Still against the eula? Technically a stone rank can get a plot faster than an obi rank if he plays more

    I will leave this thread now a eula argument will turn into an eternal fight if it includes me and i mean eternal as in forever

    personal effects that affect gameplay like personal coin boosters or price reductions are not permitted by the eula.
