New Demi unlock methods
« on: January 25, 2015, 08:11:00 AM »
Heres 5 possible ways the Demis could be obtained.

1.  Have a Developer Rate your World 5 Stars
2. Receive at least 1000 Rates
3. Have a Developer visit your map for 15 minutes.
4. Win a forum contest.(Gives a choice. Robo or Demi)
5. Have a Server of 24 people. (Quite easy though :/)

These are just Ideas. I understand you may not agree. Feel free to comment your Ideas.

Problem with theese, Having anything with a dev is a no, it will have the exact same reason why the current method was removed.

Haveing people choose between the two means the demi's will have to be reset and only a few people will get it a year, And seeming they have no powers like robotic it makes it a easy choice to choose robotic,
And not to mention you will have to wait for the updates in order to use them.

The have people in the game or rates are a more reasonable, However we already have unlocks for similar method.

I would have to say rates and favourites are the way to go, if the requirement was something like 1000 rates and 15 favourites then their is no doubt that the host has put a good amount of effort into their map.
Their could also be something completely new added for the soul purpose of unlocking demi's, for example their could be a new button to press called something along the lines of 'commend for demi's" and a player would need an X amount of commends to unlock them.

Lots of begging and spawn traps, The best methods i have seen/come up with are using the average rating, so 1k with a 4.0 that would still show the map is above average slightly,

Howevery i think the new unlock method should come along with a new feature or boss, not something so easily corrupted as map stats.

1.  Have a Developer Rate your World 5 Stars
I believe that since the original unlock method was similar, this would have the same results, and therefore nullify the reasoning of changing the unlock method.

2. Receive at least 1000 Rates
Personally, if possible, I would want the new Unlock Method to be something completely independent and not pertaining to World Visitors or Ratings, simply because those numbers do not necessarily speak for the quality of the world, and rather the amount of time the world has been hosted.

3. Have a Developer visit your map for 15 minutes.
I give the same reasoning as #1.

4. Win a forum contest.(Gives a choice. Robo or Demi)
This may not be a terrible idea, but I believe that the Robotic and the DemiGods should be completely separate, essentially for the reasons that Clerical stated.

5. Have a Server of 24 people. (Quite easy though :/)
This would be an unfair requirement simply because many people's Internet Connection cannot support 24 players in their session at once.

These are just Ideas. I understand you may not agree. Feel free to comment your Ideas.

Hmm.... New Mob. Kill Zeus in DD. Could make an awesome boss and good fight. His stats could be diablo times 2. Only 1 would Spawn per world. Killing it is hard and time consuming but once accomplished its a great reward. Now theres 2 issues with this... a new mob means new lag and how would he fit in the TM World.
