    I feel like we should reduce the chance of cobble in all the voting crates at spawn. Currently cobble is so abundant and that you could build a cobble gen to get all the cobble. Lets not forget that the price for cobble is really low, like you can get 2 (sometimes 3, rarely a lot depending on the seller) stacks for like 1 grass. Sometimes they can give it for free, if you ask.

    Besides a lot of people drop cobble at drop parties so earning cobble at vote crates is practically pointless cause you can easily obtain it from other people. :)


    Feel free to comment on your thoughts guys! :D <3

    I dont think we should make it little bit harder haha, just like reduce the amount of cobble coming from vote crate, like at this point is so abundant because of how many donors we have.

    Lol cobble 3 stacks to 1. Crazy world. I remember 8 stackd to 1. It could be replaced with the same amount of stone to make it more interesting for greynies.

    For some players the vote crate is a reliable source of cobblestone. For the amount of vote keys they’re likely to be using at once, the amount of cobble recieved makes sense for them.

    Even if the price for cobble is really low, these players aren’t likely to have a lot of grass - so having to spend it on cobble would remove the main focus on enjoying building your island. Cobble prices would also rise at the point that there’s a demand for it, making this problem worse.

    I'm neutral on this, I see the frustration of getting only cobble from multiple crate keys. I feel like cobble prices are meant to be low, everyone can use it to build on their island and obtain is easily. If cobble was to become a block worth more (the price wouldn't be huge, but it'd go up a bit) then there wouldn't be another cheap block that everyone can use to build, expand etc.

    Neutral on this. Like most people here, I understand that for many new players, cobblestone from crates is extremely useful, however they don't have a benefit for the people with larger Skyblocks. I feel that a system that changes the contents of the crate according to the player's island level could work for the crates and solve this issue, so that the crates can be more appropriate to the level of the player opening it. Only small changes over time, maybe with every 500 levels or so, but simply changing cobblestone with stone for players with an island level over 500 would be a much more appropriate win from the crate. It could also restore some value and competition to the /leaderboards, as players would be encouraged to place higher level blocks recieved from vote crates.

    The only con I can think of (at this time) is having already high-level players be able to skyrocket their islands using better rewards given free to them by a few voting websites. I'm not sure how this would be able to be resolved, though. :confused:

    I can understand, but getting cobble is like an 80-85% chance and that there's so much cobble in circulation. Plus new players would need about 2-3 stacks average to expand their island to get what they need.

    Back on classic, cobble was worth a little bit more and that people would often sell cobble for 2-3 grass for couple stacks, but now it's gone down by a lot, and now it's 2 stacks for one grass or so. Besides there are cobble generators and building an auto cobble generator isn't that hard (yes it can be a bit tricky, with the circuit).

    I don't know about changing the crate contents for a specific island level, as it would be too complicated and that too not that useful

    For the most part, receiving cobble has a high change, somewhere around 80-85% chance from my guess. Plus there are some people who are willing to give some cobble for the greenies :p

    Support. I almost always get cobblestone from vote crates. Now I probably have 2-3 DCs of Cobblestone that I can't use for anything.

    It's very annoying for donors who have kits, who recieve stacks of cobble every couple days, but for non-donors, it may make the server more boring because they'd have to spend more time at a cobble generator. Neutral

    Also remove that I don't fully support this anymore

    Your new position is confusing to me, you said support saying something similar to that and now you're neutral? o_O

    Neutral, as much as it is annoying to get a bunch of cobblestone mostly from the vote crates, I think it's useful especially to new players who join the server and build their island mostly out of cobblestone.

    Neutral, while it is incredibly annoying to receive a lot of cobblestone from the crates, it's really just there for those who need it. It won't ruin the economy if it was removed or kept, cobblestone will always be cheap because donors get a very large sum of cobblestone in their kits, every couple of days, if not every day. Defaults like cobblestone to build with, they don't get kits, meaning they don't earn grass or diamonds from them, so when they receive keys from voting they use it and get cobblestone and they're happy.

    I wouldn't say it's annoying but rather so much. Im saying that we shouldn't remove the cobble from the crate, just reduce the amount that we get. Let's say if it's around 85% to get a stack, We could reduce it to 70-60% or so. That way people get cobble, but just enough for them to use. :)

    Neutral. New players rely on these vote crates to get the materials they need. Besides, thats where I get most of my cobble, instead of manually mining it lol.

    Some players, like defaults, find this an advantage and rely on the crates to gain a great amount of materials, like cobblestone. Cobblestone will always remain cheap and useful for many players to build/expand their island.

    I feel like most of us are kind of missing my point here .-.

    Basically when I mean I want to reduce the number of cobblestone from vote crates, I mean like not eliminate it if that makes it clear :/

    Now I don't know the exact percentage of getting cobble (I'd say 80%) but I mean yo reduce the output of cobble by like a 10-20% points. And maybe increase the percentage chances of the other loot.

    If a default gets more loot, they can always sell it for a good amount of grass, that too buy more cobble at cheap prices.


    Hopefully my point came across, and wasn't a turbulent one to fly through :p

    I don't think we can do that as if that would require a lot of work it seems. I may be wrong because I am not into coding but it might be that way.

    Also it would be at an disadvantage for the greenies because they are going to realize that donors are getting more loot than they are which would be at an unfair advantage. Also more loot would drop the prices down even further.

    Like literally the cost for one emerald is 3 grass and isn't obtainable at all. Its just crazy! :p
