    Due to the fact that the ranks purchased are lifetime ranks, I think allowing players to purchase temporary ranks with their in game points would be a wise economical choice. Say spending 1,000 points gives you diamond for a day, or next 10 games (I don't have specifics, just the general idea).

    They could receive cubelets and an XP multiplier for the duration of their rank, and get to vote for different maps and item types, as well as having a temporary rank in chat. Of course the friends and weekly bonuses wouldn't be available.

    This would give players a glimpse into what owning a rank would be like, and I believe it'd be enough incentive to persuade more than a few players into purchasing lifetime ranks.

    1000 points is way to little, it costs more than 1000 points to get some kits.

    That's why I put in parenthesis that it was just the idea, not specific data on it. That can be figured out if the idea is liked.

    I really like the idea! But I should make the points a little bit higher then!
    Iron = 2000 points
    Gold = 2500 points
    Lapis = 3500 points
    Diamond = 5000 points
    Emerald = 7000 points
    Obsidian = 10000 points

    Thanks! I like the set up! But I do have one question. Isn't gold higher than Lapis?:p

    The idea is actually not bad. This would probably get more people to buy ranks after testing them :)

    Yes, it is.
    I do kind of like this too actually, you just never know how glitchy it will be.

    I'm always confused between those 2, but if it is, you just change the points. :D

    And we never will unless we try;)

    So Lapis would be 2500 and Gold would be 3500! I do like the system by Cyna:)

    I should say you can play somewhere between 4-8 hours with the rank, but not real life time but the time you are only on cubecraft

    I put the 24 hours as it would be by server time. People who would spend that kind of currency on it I'm sure play anywhere from 4-8 hours per day (especially the day they buy their rank), so I think it would work out either way.

    Maybe 24 hours isn't that bad like you said!
    Sometimes it costs more then 1 month to get 10 000 points so you don't waste your coins.

    I'm not a huge fan of the idea. Personally, I think that people already know what comes with the donor ranks and I don't really think they need to try it out.

    Sure the information is readily available, but if a player really enjoys OP and rarely gets to play it, being able to temporarily use the rank and enjoy the incentive of every game being OP may be enough to get them to purchase the rank!

    Not really...
    By them not having the rank, they would want the rank more and they would want the perks more.

    I like the idea

    but maybe the points are like the money irl and than take the halve of it
    so Iron is 15$ = 7.50$ so it would cost 7500 Points?
    and maybe u can buy how long the rank needs to be.
    so like 1 day 2k and 1 week 15k?
    we just need to sort out how much it would cost :p

    +1 From me! :D

    The grocery industry spends millions of dollars every year passing out samples of foods in their store hoping you'll enjoy it enough to purchase it. Sure, you can see it from a distance. Heck, you can even smell it. But tasting it is what matters, and it's a proven idea. If we give the people the possibility to taste the ranks, it will hook them into buying it.;)

    Thanks!
    I like that idea! Figuring out the costs will take tweaking and of course approval from the staff, so ideas on that are greatly appreciated! Thanks!
