# 1 Energy Credit Sink NEEDED
02-05-2010, 04:53 PM
OK, so people want a death penalty, and the exchange is going to explode once more people hit admiral because there is no sink for credits... they will just keep accumulating... so why not make it cost 1k per tier (IE, 1k at 1-11, 2k at 12-21, 3k at 22-31, 4k at 32-41, and 5k at 41+) every time you die? Kill two birds with one stone... or hell start the death penalty at lvl 21, give people a break? I am lvl 21 and I have 400k....

Nope. Lack of energy credit sink = no gold farmer business.

And yet there is STOGold every time you, me, and everyone else logs on.

It may discourage them, but it won't stop them.

Besides, I would rather have a game that requires thought which is loaded with RMT''s than a game which requires NO thought and has slightly fewer RMT's.

Well, there is a credit sink in the form of buying tabs for the fleet bank. But I agree that the game needs more than this.

But Cryptic is not known for giving players stuff to spend money on. As long as I can remember, City of Heroes never had any real purpose for Influence. It just accumulated and accumulated.

Honestly I'm surprised Cryptic didn't have anti-spam measures in place already. The volume of spamming some of these accounts do is silly.

Of course they might be just fishing for suckers. What was it, something like 100 bucks US to be power leveled from 1-10? Someone could do that casually over a weekend or two. Or 20 bucks US for 100k of energy credits? After you hit Lt. Cmdr, they start coming very easy to get. More than a monthly subscription fee for something that would take a few hours to get from normal play.

Once people figure that out, the gold farmers will eventually go away. That, and when only the paying accounts are allowed on, when the grace period ends for the pre-order.

I must agree with this. I have like 400k and nothing to spend it on. Credits seem worthless ATM.

WHAT! are you stupid......I don't want my hard earned credits going down the drain beacuse I die in combat, just because you want a fricken death penalty don't come on here and with some stupid lame ass idea.

Come up something better, and who cares, once everyone starts to hit 45 they will open up content, the orignal lvl was 50, I am sure they got plans month or so down the road......

come back with good ideas jack not lame ass ones

they always keep accumulating ... its a game. Money sinks dont mean anything to anybody...it only makes things tough on new players.

Some people take imaginary gold way to seriously,

And, until they did, you never saw a gold farmer spamming in there. It wasn't worth it.
