It's no secret the addition of Immortal, Mineplex's rebranding of Power Play Club, is a controversial choice. What I've found since its implementation, however, is that the majority of people aren't against the fundamental idea of it. It's the perks that people raise questions and criticism about. EULA violations, perks that everyone previously had access to, and so on. People aren't happy with the perks. With that being said, sales have proven to LT that Immortal is something to stay, something they need to move forward. And I agree. Immortal should stay. Mineplex has to make money. Even so, the way it makes money should be reasonable, wouldn't you say? Devoid of controversy? There is a middle ground to be had between insulting non-consumers of Immortal and pleasing the consumers of it. So here I am to suggest what should change with Immortal's perks. As always, I'm open to feedback on everything here, and I'd love if LT contributed to the discussion so we can arrive at something beneficial to everyone hopefully- a mutually pleasing conclusion. I'm only gonna be touching on perks unique to Immortal, not those that it inherits from other ranks. Perks that should stay: Skin change system, ignore velocity, flight, monthly bonus (not including exp boost), 300% shard bonus, exclusive monthly cosmetics, Metal Man morph, Rainbow Road diamond sword name, Excalibur diamond sword name, and icon prefix. Perks that should be made available to everyone: First-person spectating and stacker (also add /pref). Perks that should either be limited or removed (if removed, also replaced): Color chat and join message. Perks that should be removed and replaced by other things: 2x gem bonus and exp boost (both are EULA violations). Even if Mineplex talked to Mojang beforehand, it's a better idea to just stay within the law and set a good example. Perks I'm unsure of and will need feedback on: Bypass Clans queue and priority map voting. ~~~ So if we go by this breakdown, which I find pretty reasonable, at most there are 6 perks that need to be replaced, not counting the ones I'm unsure of because I don't know what people think of them. So bear with me while I brainstorm some hopefully interesting replacements. There should be more than enough new perks here to replace the ones I suggest get removed and enough for new things to get added later down the line. If it has a question mark, it means I'm not entirely sure on if that's a good idea or not (or simply that it would make more sense for everyone, not just Immortal). 1. Duplicate shard increase: Immortals get more shards back from duplicates found in chests. 2. Gifs in banners on your wall. 3. Username particles on the website (like what Enjin used to have). 4. Increased wall post character limit? 5. Hoisted Discord role (the only premium role there). 6. Greater MPS capacity. 7. Access to unique games in the MPS roster (solo CW, for instance). 8. Access to more customization options in the MPS (grace period, OP items, etc.) 9. More MPS/Community themes. I imagine the Build Team should be able to handle this quickly as it's just one island. 10. More customization options for Communities. 11. Higher chance to find high-quality cosmetics in chests. In other words, better luck. 12. Custom, potentially animated title. 13. Ability to use taunts in lobbies. 14. Ability to double-jump and use cosmetics that affect velocity in game lobbies. 15. More daily uses of /report. 16. Unique emotes. 17. Endgame loot is added back for everyone, but Immortals have a higher chance for good endgame loot. The pool is more diversified than it was before with more than just low-tier stuff. 18. Better Carl spinner luck. Daily allowance of one spinner token. 19. Can bulk-bye non-holiday gadgets. 20. Can directly purchase non-holiday cosmetics? 21. Can redeem illuminated chests for shards? 22. Discount for purchasing chests in-game. 23. New icon prefixes. 24. Stacking benefits (For instance, if you purchased Eternal beforehand, and you then buy Immortal, you get some kind of bonus as a thank you). Maybe in addition to the Immortal monthly bonus, you can also claim the bonus of whatever rank you bought beforehand, meaning you would get more than if you just bought Immortal. 25. Exclusive events hosted by Event Squad? 26. Greater friend list capacity. 27. Continuing patron benefit (More perks the longer you keep your Immortal subscription going. Hopefully wouldn't be the same as the monthly exclusive cosmetics.). 28. Long-term patron benefit (A little different than continuing- if you buy for a year or for some time period other than for a month, you get some kind of benefit.). 29. Animated forum profile picture. 30. Can own 3 Communities. Any ideas of your own? Let me know down below! Thanks for reading! Leave thoughts below, so we can have a productive discussion.
