Skyblock Economy (Repost)

SkyBlock is one of the most popular gamemodes ever created. The concept behind the map is very simple; you spawn on a floating island and must survive and complete challenges with the resources available to you.

Note: I have recently posted this in the suggestions tab, this is a re-post in Skyblock so players who only look at Skyblock will see it.

The Skyblock economy is massively broken right now, and it is starting to ruin the game for players like me, and I am sure there are others who think the same about this situation.

Skyblock has been open for two weeks and everything is so easy to get, there isn't a challenge really anymore. The first solution I have to this problem is to remove the insanely op sale that is on the store right now. I know you guys may not want to do this, but it is for the best, considering Iron golem spawners are 2 euros EACH. Players who are "Pay To Win" can easily take control over this and buy 200igs, like iAnwar. Igs were used to be the hardest thing to get and people would play weeks or even a month to get one if they weren't lucky in vote crates. There are also countless other items on the store for 70% off that ruin the economy (i.e. kit spawneggs, nexus rank).

I also have a second solution to this horrible problem that has disrupted the game. This fix revolves around the quests. Quest keys are extremely easy to get for the prizes they can give. I know the chances for the resource pets are low, but lucky people can get them in under 10 keys. I think resource pets should be only added to vote crates and legendary crates, instead of the (right now) quest crates. People will buy quest keys that can easily be gained for $500,000. This makes new players rich instantly, removing the task for hard work to be involved. If resource pets were in vote keys at a very low chance, (maybe .03 or something) I don't believe things won't be as bad, because everyone gets the same number of them everyday and they're already sold for a pretty high price with a good reward.

I also think skyblock should be roll-backed a few days, possibly even the reset day, with everyone who had purchased a one time item (spawners, money, NOT kits, etc.) should be refunded in a buycraft gift card. This is optional, I don't really care about the 5$ I spent on two iron golem spawners, but possibly people like iAnwar, who have spent over 100 euro on iron golem spawners may care, perhaps 50% how much they spent, I'm not sure.

Please pay attention to this, as me and many others have contemplated leaving extremecraft again, as I've said the economy is broken. I have been told countless times that "extremecraft staff won't do anything about this situation", "they only care about money", "no one will fix it", but the old extremecraft I know would probably help the community, and I do count on the staff and others to solve this situation!

tldr: EC's economy is broken. Remove 70% off and move resource pets to higher crates or remove them all together. Possibly a roll-back needed.

Thanks for reading!

Agreed, There is no decent Economy in Skyblock. It pretty much went to pay to win since the 70% off discounts. which is really unfortunate...
