    So, we used to get suggestions like "enable voting for non-premiums"! Now, we all know that that won't be added, because that would scam premiums. So I have a suggestion that would balance both the wishes of premiums and non-premiums.

    Basically what would happen in a game with voting is that if there are no premium players, the game will choose a random setting (chests, and daytime). This will be disabled if there is a premium in the lobby.

    Benefits for premiums: doesn't give non-premiums any priviledges; therefore will not feel scammed or anything.
    Benefits for non-premiums: the ability to play OP or basic without having to purchase a rank or wait for a premium.



    Also, please don't just say "buy a rank", because we all know that many cannot do this, and that is not a real reason too deny this suggestion. Plus, it's just annoying.

    I don't like this idea because it would drop rank buyers by 30 - 50%.
    Simple as that.
    If you have the ability to play OP, a lot of people will just game-hop until they find an OP game.
    And don't tell me this is inconvenient, because it waaayy more convenient than buying a rank.

    But I personally don't like playing op and making it random would make normal not normal :p This would also take away one of the big reasons to get donator: to play your favorite mode. Now if it was random all you would have to do is retry to get your favorite mode making it so you don't need a rank as much

    i dont like this idea as for it pretty much takes the Rank ability down percentage and it can be abused by others Game Hopping tell they find a game they want to play so its a -1 from me

    It really isn't random. Just find an OP game.
    I sure as hell would feel scammed, considering that perk is basically gone.
