    Price vs Limitibility Survey

    When it comes to PVP puzzles like, Swordfighting, Rumble, Drinking, Treasure Drop. If everyone had a bot, then their would be little advantage of having a bot for those Puzzles (plus it could kill the puzzle ofcourse).

    So that raises the question - what is the best way to limit the distribution of these? Should it be limited?

    Ways to possibly limit them:
    Monthly subscription to only that bot and only x amount of subscribers for the bot per month. Not allowed to subscribe twice in a row.
    Make it expensive (like $50+ or $100+)
    Auction auths each month for the next month is also a good and considerable idea. Have a start bit of x and then 24 / 7 days / 1 month of bidding. (flash's idea)

    Please post your ideas/opinions.

    I guess people could sub two months in a row - but maybe give priority over people who haven't had it before or something - so it doesn't get hogged. But yeah, I guess you are right, you pay for it, you get it.

    Every bot is profitable, just depends on how big the profit margin is.

    I think auctioning off the auths each month for the next month is also a good and considerable idea. Have a start bit of x and then 24h / 7 days / 1 month of bidding.

    Are these things in addition to it being kept at a somewhat lower level of performance so as not to break the game?
    Limiting the number of subscriptions per month sounds like the best idea out of the options presented.

    I personally don't like limiting the performance level of the bot.

    Once performance passes a certain point it starts killing the game, people lost interest in playing because they know the bots will always come out on top. I dont know where the performance level is at the moment, but if it is breaking the top 15 then it can begin to create serious problems.
