    Alright, so in the Prison Focus group earlier today, we were discussing about arccash and then Loki told me to post my thoughts on forums for community feedback, so here I am.

    Below is a list of what I believe should be on the web store and my justifications for thinking so;

    Ranks

    Currently all ranks have been purchasable with Arccash on the store and Loki plans to remove than in order to generate more revenue in order to allow Arcadian to run - completely fine. He has proposed allowing the bottom rank on each server to be bought using Arccash but that's it. (Miner on prison, Trainee on Skyblock). My personal thoughts are that this is pretty stupid as these ranks tend to be worthless which is essentially proved by the fact that they are rarely bought with real money. I believe that Arccash should allow you to buy the greatest value-for-money rank on any one server of choice. This means you can buy the following ranks with arccash on one server only (Lord, Phantom & Deity (I know Deity is top rank but it is the best value for money for real)).

    Prison Items

    Going to only mention prison for the rest of this thread, simply as its the only server which I have enough knowledge to discuss about.

    In short I think you should be able to buy the following;

    - All keys
    - All carepackages
    - Relics (but make them more than IRL price)
    - Black market items
    - Small & Medium backpacks
    - Small pmines OR only Gold and Diamond ones but in large sizes too
    - Chat Colors
    - Pouches

    Let me know your thoughts :D

    Great ideas, really think your suggestion about ranks could really benefit the server! :)

    -Rusty keys (ONLY because if we add enchanted then nobody will buy them on store anymore.)
    -All care packages yes
    - No relics
    - All black market items
    - Small & Medium backpack
    - Small and large plotmines of all choosing
    - All chat colors including the custom ones
    - pouches

    - Rusty keys only
    - All carepackages
    - No relic
    - Black market items
    - Small & Medium backpacks
    - All chat colours apart from the special ones
    - Small pouches only

    Thats my opinion on your list, didn't comment on pmines cause I have no opinion. Pouches to me sort of seem like the instance with keys which is why I personally think Large should be store only.

    Good ideas but I think arccash should be heavily nerfed or tradeable for in game money

    Honestly imo they should just remove arcash until the server can sustain itself properly. I know a lot of players will be bummed out by this but the arccash system will be too overpowered no matter what anybody thinks. Store items are meant to keep the server alive and they don't need to be something every player experiences.

    Arccash is the most unique thing Arcadian has and its an amazing thing for advertising

    I agree with most of your ideas, however having all keys and all black market items available is a no-go for me. That's overpowered in my opinion. The second ArcCash is enabled, players will take advantage of this easily.

    The fact the server ran better without it should prove a point, crystal system was better and you know it.
