First off, I have no idea if this has been suggested. If it has, please ignore this.Ok, so I was looking at IceCreamCow's post about the 100th in the Vault being accessible in the wild. I was like "Oh great! Awesome idea!" but then I saw someone else post which reminded me that only Diamond supporters could have 100 slots. This made me think about how it could be more... fair? I guess that's the word I'll use.I've played a lot of games on the internet, and being a supporter/member hasn't ever been a problem for me. I've always been able to pay myself when I wanted. The more I've played though, the more that I've seen that this isn't the case for everybody. A lot of the time, people who want to become a supporter/member can't pay because it's either A) Not economically feasible - basically this means that the money can be spent better elsewhere or B) They literally aren't able to spend the money - Parents restricting the use? When I didn't have my own card, I would have to go through mommy, and a lot of the time, even if I said "I have the money here, you won't lose a cent" she has disagreed so I went without.I never stopped playing a game because I didn't get the same features or bonuses, but I did feel overlooked. The cool thing about EMC is to become wealthy, you don't NEED to have a membership. It's a little easier, but if you work hard, the extra thousand a day from Diamond isn't that much.I came up with what I personally thought was fair. I don't see paying with rupees as being an equal alternative though since it doesn't support the site as much. Instead of EMC's 30 rupees a cent: http://empireminecraft.com/rupees/ - Donation link - I think it would be better at 100 rupees a cent. The donate version would be $1 to 300 rupees, whereas the opposite conversion is 10,000 rupees > $1.More expensive? Oh by far, but this is so people see paying with rupees as a less attractive alternative. It's there for people who want membership but can't pay with real-world money.My conversions would be this:Iron - 50,000 rupees. Grants you access to any server no matter how filled up and allows you the /map hide option. I personally find this a fair price, but my brother thinks it is low.Gold - 100,000 rupees. Grants you the above options along with more lots (Could be in Utopia) and Utopian wild access. This one seems a bit low to me, but still this is just a conceptual idea.Diamond - 250,000 rupees. Grants the same as above, Utopian flying, more lots, and the main reason I created this: The ability to get Wild Vault access.Now with these prices being a bit low, I was looking at EMC's conversion rating more, and notice for every $10 there was a +10% bonus. I think that that would be a wise thing to do here as well, but I changed it a little also. Instead of a +10% bonus every $10, it is a +25% flat fee. This would make it as follows:Iron - 50,000 rupees + 25%, is 62,500 rupees.Gold - 100,000 rupees + 25% is 125,000 rupees.Diamond - 250,000 rupees + 25% is 312,500 rupees.This is a price that I think is accurate for each option. This is my idea and if it were to be implemented could be changed in any way the staff choose. It's much better then having a bunch of rupees with no way to spend them.Now the way this would work really depends on what the staff think would work the best.Option 1: The user contacts one of the admins (Or people able to grant supporter rank) and says "I would like to purchase --- membership with --- rupees." The staff says "Ok cool." Then you /r pay the staff member, they take the money out of circulation, and they give you a month of the membership.Option 2: A place in empire shop. It would be a sign that says "Diamond Membership - 312,500" just as an example. That would take a lot more coding/scripting in my opinion.Option 3: ???I personally think option 1 is the best. The admins may have receive a lot of messages though, so the feedback on this may determine which way this would go. You can also feel free to add an option you think would work.Now I don't know if you guys may want to nerf the abilities of each supporter type, or just make new ones in the place altogether. I tried making it so people would still choose to pay with cash instead of rupees. Basically this will just allow active members with some money a chance to spend it for some member only benefits. This would be beneficial with the new vault update especially.Well I'm basically done typing now, but I guess I should make a quick "perks" list of how this could help.- This would take a lot of rupees out of circulation (potentially.) For people concerned about the economy (Please refrain from Aikar jokes. They're getting old) this would help balance it out a bit.- This would give active members a chance to become supporters. It's not designed to make you the daily bonus. I made the prices like this so you were basically paying for the features, not the daily income.- This would *potentially* increase member activity - specifically Utopian activity. A lot of Utopia is still beautiful pretty close to the spawn at each outpost (Roughly 3,000-5,000 out). Lovely.- It's another unique feature! I've never come across a game that does this, but I wish I had.- Players would be more determined in voting daily to get 700 rupees closer to their goal.- New Vault System: Any pages you purchase are yours to keep forever even if you downgrade supporter rank. - Maxarias This would give many players the ability to get more pages.- It would be difficult to maintain the membership, so it would encourage more activity. Earning 312,500 a month is kind of hard. I would really like to see large shop or "Mega-mall" owners post here whether they think that this is possible. I don't think it is. I've been saying that this is kind of an alternative, but I guess it isn't. It's not easy to maintain Diamond or Gold. Iron is possible, but it's still a lot to spend. This would allow users an extra lot or two and a taste of EMC supportership.So please, any feedback is nice. I don't want this to be a replacement for real money, but only an option for those less capable of paying.
