    Obsidian
    Ohai!

    So, I've been looking at the rank obsidian in the shop, and the same goes for the emerald rank. And even though this MAY have been suggested before, I'd still like to make my own statement on this one.

    So basically there's an actual difference in price between obsidian and emerald, and not a few pounts no no no, 50 pounds to be exact with you.

    Which I believe is a ridiculous amount of money for the few extra things you get. These are the exclusive things you get when purchasing an obsidian rank:

    • 100 friend slots (instead of 70)
    • Up to 15 people in a party (Instead of 10)
    • 52+ exclusive items (Instead of 46)
    • Gamemode (Tower defence voting)
    • Wing Rush (Arcade voting)
    So this is litterly it. 50 pounds is way too much for only these features.

    Friend slots: Okay, having 30 more people in your friend list seems much, which it is but it's not that special to be honest. Like who's ever gonna have 100 friends who they ALL know. Most of the time, when I check my friend list, there are so many people I don't know anymore. And I have only like 40 friends at the moment.

    15 party people:
    So this gives you the ability to have 5 more people in your party, which is nice and all. Not gonna say it's unnecessary because it's a nice feature to have but I haven't had a party with more than 8 people to be honest. And this is obviously not the reason why it's so expensive.


    52+ exclusive items:
    Thise one looks great when reading it, but to be honest those are all vanity items (and I'm aware of the fact that there's an update incoming, but still) which are pretty worthless. Like having them is nice, but they're not worth that much in real money.

    Gamemode:
    So this is an extra voting option and I don't even know what it does. That's why I don't play this game at all, like many other people I know. Maybe you've played it once or twice but this isn't a game like sky or eggwars. It's just not that popular and not worth that much money.

    Wing Rush:
    So here you can vote for wingrush, which is nice really. But it's just really that much to have, this may be one of the best features emerald doesn't own, but be honest all obsidian rankers out there, how much have you used this?

    So here is my question: Why is there a 50 pound difference in emerald and obsidian? I really don't understand and it's ridiculous in my opinion. So what can we do about it?
    • Give obsidian rank more permissions
    • Lower the price of obsidian
    • Increase the price of emerald
    EDIT: Most people agree with the more perks idea, which is my favorite too. Doesn't mean it needs to be done in a rush but it'd be nice to have more perks.

    But be honest, these are litterly 5 more features, and at least 3 of them are worth a maximum of 3 pounds (for example). Is it worth so much more because it is in fact the highest rank? Because that'd be an invalid reason for the money you're paying. And for the record, this would mean that it's 10 pound per permission, which is really absurd.

    So there are three things I didn't add, which are these:

    • OBSIDIAN Tag on your Profile and Posts.
    • Purple colored name in tab list
    • [Obsidian] Chat prefix

    This is because these doesn't have any value but the color and name, but for those who still thinks this counts, here it is.


    If you think I've missed something, go look for yourself here: https://store.cubecraft.net/

    • Fly in lobbies
    • Colored chat
    • At least 70 friend slots
    • At least up to 10 people in a party
    • At least 46 exclusive items
    • 1v1 kit selection (PvP)
    • Map selection (SkyWars)
    • Vote for time (SkyWars)
    • Vote for projectiles (SkyWars)
    • Vote for chest type (SkyWars)
    • Map selection (EggWars)
    • Vote for health boost (EggWars)
    • Vote for item types (EggWars)
    • Map selection (Tower Defence)
    • Armageddon (Tower Defence)
    • Pricing (Tower Defence)
    • Map selection (BlockWars)
    • Vote modifiers (BlockWars)
    • Map selection (Lucky Islands)
    • Vote for time (Lucky Islands)
    • Game option (Lucky Islands)
    • Map selection (Survival Games)
    • Vote for time (Survival Games)
    • Vote for chests type (Survival Games)
    • Slime survival (Arcade ames)
    • Quake Craft (Arcade ames)
    • Layer spleef (Arcade ames)
    • Paintball (Arcade ames)
    • Line Dash (Arcade ames)
    • Barn Ball (Arcade ames)
    • Map selection (MinerWare)
    • Difficulty voting (MinerWare)
    • Time of day (Infection)
    • Board voting (Bingo)

    Leave your opinions here if you want to (I'd appreciate it a lot).

    NOTE: Checked grammar/spelling mistakes here, could be edited when I find some though.

    NOTE: If this has even been suggested before I apologize, just wanted to make my own statements.

    It's a scam to reduce the prices.
    They should just add more permissions

    I do say it's quite expensive, but it keeps the server up and running.
    I would like there to be more stuff you actually get...
    And if this was implemented, the people who already have said obsidian rank also get it.

    Not really, the prices have been changed a lot of times in the past due to a higher playerbase.

    How would that help
    People pay money for an emerald rank to get certain features
    So how would it help to remove the features?
    If anything you are pretty much just scamming people
    If it were a scam people
    I mean there is such thing as sales
    People who payed full price currently wouldn’t have to pay full price if they bought it while on sale this would just mean they buy it on sale
    This would just be like a sale
    A never-ending sale but still a sale nonetheless



    Anyways I disagree
    Features for obsidian should just be added overtime like they would be reguardless
    Rushing to add other things in wouldn’t help

    Never said it must be done in a rush. I’m just saying that the price is ridiculous and should be changed, and i gave 3 solutions for it (The other one you mentioned has been deleted due to the fact it was a mistake).

    Yeah, the upgrade price isn't close to worth it when you upgrade from emerald to obsidian

    A 4th option could be adding an in between, maybe a theorhetical name could be redstone? Replace lapis with redstone, replace gold with lapis, replace diamond with gold, replace emerald with diamond then sneak emerald in some half point between obsidian and emerald, maybe 110 pounds?

    If the upgrade to Obsidian is as pointless as you make it out to be, I'm confused as to why you went through with the purchase.
    Instead of looking at it like a buy, think about it as a donation (ik its not but it sounds better). Yes, obviously lowering the price or creating more perks will make it more enticing, but I'm glad the team is focusing on projects that benefit the majority of the community. And if there is a vanity update coming, it might solve your problems (maybe not all your grievances, but it'll be a start).

    And if you do want specific privileges, maybe list them to give some idea of what you want.
    Not following the forum super closely, but I don't see this as a huge priority?

    Right now, is better to have emerald than obsidian. With emerald you can vote in almost every game, and you have lots of vanity items. They should add more vanity for obsidian ranks.

    I wanted to make a long reply, but that’d make it too complicated, since I simply agree!

    Because discount.

    It's officially donating yes. But you're giving money, and you get something back for it, sounds like a purchase to me.

    So ofcourse there are way more important things they should be developing, but I never said this must be done in a rush, they can add it in 2019 if they want, I'm just saying it's a lot of money for what you're getting which is the main reason for me to make this thread.

    You've totally forgotten the most important thing you get more than emerald!!
    It's the 500 vanity points!!! How can you forget it

    Honestly though, it is true where obsidian should have more permissions etc than emerald as shown it's 50 bucks more.
