It seems that everyone has an opinion about bounties and how to fix them or what to do, I wanted to make this thread to listen to everyone's feedback.
To "fix" bounties,a couple of things need to be achieved, players need to have a way to earn IC and it must be linked to game play without encouraging meta gaming.
Also, I'm not saying anything will be done yet, this is just for discussion lol.
The current issue:
People think that bounties makes the economy "inflated"
This could be an underlying issue with the price check system where people can't actually adjust their prices based on the economy, causing them to mis-price items and making everyone else freak out because they demand such a high price.
Bounties reward people that play 24/7 exponentially compared to people that don't have as much time to play (School, work, etc.)
This is inherent with the way the bounties system works since there's 70+ bounties that people can complete and they each take a different amount of time
People not having enough time to play also means that it would be harder for them to earn IC "quickly" if bounties were gone
If there was a new system, it would need to fix all of these. It would ideally be a system that rewards people on the amount of time that they play, but that doesn't do it in an exponential way.
If you're planning on replying please keep it to constructive discussion only.
