Boosters?

Postby Tilts on Fri Jan 12, 2018 4:42 am

Hello!
To start, this is my first post on this forum so expect the worst.

Anyway, I've recently seen a popular concept in games known primarily as "boosters". These so called boosters allow a user to temporarily boost the effectiveness of a certain task (usually drop rates, exp gain, item gain, etc.).
I was wondering if this concept could possibly be implemented into rocket league? Here are my thoughts:

- Boosters would be dropped in a similar fashion to crates, however would be somewhat rarer.

- Said boosters would appear in the manage inventory dialogue and would show the following upon being hovered over:
Length
Short description of effect

- You may only have 1 booster active at a time to prevent insane stacking or "strategic" use.

- These boosters would simply increase the chances of dropping items or crates from online play.

- Boosters may be traded with other players.

If I'm being honest I rather just have certain weekends/dates where Psyonix increases the drop rate for a few days or so, for special occasions - which is basically what they've been doing already.

While the concept is cool, I feel like the whole process of adding boosters is unnecessary and more of a hassle than anything else.

When boosters come around you'll definitely see a lot more crate farmers so giving out boosters just wont work because of these farmers

such boosters would serve no purpose at all...

so what do you expect would happen? Everybody just uses boosters while they open crates, lowering the price of every item, and therefore making crates just as useless as before. You gotta understand how a completely open economy works. You can't just make things worth less or more artificially without affecting the rest of the market.

It could work if they only boost droprates for post-match drops, stay active for 1 hour (maybe 2 tops) and can't be used during double drop weekends.

I may not have explained this correctly, but I never stated that you have a higher item chance when opening crates. It simply increases the postgame drop rate. Also, the boosters wouldn't stack onto double drop weekends so you wouldn't gain an advantage from using them on those days.

Also, if every item was cheaper, how would that make a difference? They're all relative...

Keys don't get cheaper.

I agree, but the game should say clearly that double drop weekend is going to happen or is happening.

It does, albeit a little late with the announcement.
