    Suggestion:
    Fix lotto boosters so they can't be abused
    Reason:
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Don't deny that this is not being abused. People can easily buy the booster when barely anyone else is on and get rich easily off lotto. Now this user can go buy multiple ranks instantly. I know you could sell features before or buy ECD directly but it involved more work with a much lower exchange rate.
    Any Other Information:

    It pi**** me off when servers have pay-to-win. I was ok with buying some features that helped you on the server but this is just letting people who are rich IRL cash out on the server.
    Link To This Plugin/Is this a custom addition?:

    Tweaks to fix this:
    either
    Remove the auto draw so other people actually have a chance at winning
    or increase the prices of the boosters so you can't win as much.

    It's not pay to win at all. It adds money to the lotto pot and draws instantly. I don't see how it's abused.

    How do you not see this? When barely anyone else is on, maybe only one person has tickets. If 1 person has 1 ticket and they buy a booster they have a 100% chance of winning the money.

    If anything the auto draw needs to be removed. Then other people will have more time to buy tickets.

    No. If you want to have a chance, use a macro that buys you 1 ticket every lotto such. @priMELval uses this macro. It's not their fault.

    Yes and I'm pretty sure mel has plenty of money to blow on lotto. I don't have that kind of money at all (most people don't).

    I can see your point but it is to a point down to luck.
    I've seen a few people add 100k to the pot and lose.

    I am fine with it on peak hours when you actually can lose, but times like an hour ago with a whopping 20 people on and no other ticket buyers, there's no "chance" to it.

    Yeah but a lot of it's not luck. I don't mind the booster that much but I think it needs balancing. 1 mil for 80 is insane. Needs to be like 500k for 80. People sold features for less than this so I'm sure they'll buy money for it.

    1 mill for 80 is like 12k per USD
    500k for 80 is like 6k per USD

    :)

    That would be better. Still I think the auto draw thing should be removed.

    (This isn't abusing lotto boosters, abusing would imply this wasn't meant or foreseen).

    When you make it harder to win, people are less willing to actually support the server.

    What's the harm here anyway? Tbh it doesn't affect me in any way that people have more money. In fact, let them, more money for them to spend in my shop :p

    This is literally the point of these lotto boosters. LITERALLY. You think anyone wants to pay $80 when they have a good chance at losing? Because people aren't going to put real money into something like that. It needs to provide very good odds of winning.

    If anything, this makes lottery active because people buy a few tickets every lotto just to get a shot at a booster.


    Though, I must say, I think $80/1m is a bit of a large exchange rate. It's way more than you could get pre-EULA.

    These are global boosters and anyone has a chance of winning when buying them as long as they have tickets in the pot. Many users even use macros to purchase a ticket every single draw.

    This is the exact same argument you can make with any boosters on any servers.
    "It's not fair people can participate in this global boss fight booster, I don't have the awesome Armour and Weapons they do so I'll just get killed and won't get the rewards"

    Etc.

    Many users have purchased SEVERAL boosters and lost to others who are online.
    Some have even lost two 1 Million ECD boosters in a row!

    We are absolutely confirmed compliant by our legal department and Mojang.
    This suggestion is denied.

    PS: If you'd like a better chance at lotto, buy more tickets, purchase a ticket every draw, and spend a bit more time getting rich in game.
