Why don't donors have one-time purchase items?

    I purchased Mobster a while back before the server was even close to dying / reset. Today I logged in for the first time after the reset, but I don't have 20k, nor an M11. I was told this is intentional. Is this? Why? Can we have at least have what we paid for? It seems kind of unfair if new donors get more things than old donors for the same price.

    Totally fair to give new people who buy ranks M11 then? As well as refunding our ranks? x_x

    Even if it’s refunded, I recommend they give it like 3-4 months after the beta was over, just to not make the pvp screwed.

    Mango is right, you just want to have an M11 and 20k, so that you would be able to have an advantage over new players.

    Alright, I can see the Administration's side on why they won't give the ranked players the stuff from rank rewards...


    See, once this server starts to gain a population, they do not want it to be ruined because of a hundred or so people running around the map with (maybe) the most powerful weapon in the game, demolishing new players that could potentially come on regularly. They want it to be fair for everyone just starting out, so everyone has a chance to survive.

    But, I see your point, however you need to think of the greater good of the server. Sorry :/ At least you have your rank.

    Can't have a bunch of the best gun put into the game instantly. Also, the huge influx of money would break the economy for a little while.

    Another reason is that they would have to re-issue everyone's rank again, in order to trigger the one-time rewards. I don't think they want to do that.

    However, if someone bought Mobster right now for $100, what would happen?

    But that would be too op, right? Wouldn’t the pvp be unbalanced?

    So you would want it to be even more unbalanced?

    Why should the new mobsters get their one time purchase items but not the older ones? In reality, it's not op at all since most of those mobsters bought cheatcodes which make the pvp unfair. Also, being a donor makes the pvp unfair since donating is supposed to give the player an advantage while helping the server.

    We are not getting them for two simple reasons:

    A) Too overpowered. A huge amount of returning players have ranks, but we are only going to be looking at Mobster here, because the Jumper doesn't exist anymore, and therefore the ranks under Mobster wouldn't even get anything in the first place. The server just reset and is finalized; there will be no more resets and the economy is consistent and we're all figuring prices and such out. If they suddenly introduced tens, if not a hundred or more Model 11s (Tier 5 shotgun) into the server, it would become extremely unbalanced. Tier 5s are supposed to be rare, and they are harder to find now too. Giving tens of people 20k would also wreck the economy for a little while.

    B) They would have to reissue everyone's rank again if they wanted to give us back our one-time benefits. This means going through all of the BuyCraft records and putting through the ranks we bought. For everyone. It would take an absurd amount of time and if you read my first reason, it would definitely not be worth the time doing so, even if it would please the community, or at least please the players who have Mobster.

    /buy in game says you’ll get the jumper, m11, etc if you buy mobster. I would change that before some rich white child spends his weekly allowance on it and threatens to ddos the server when he doesn’t get what was listed

    You do get it if you purchase it.
    You don't get it if you already had Mobster before the server reopened.

    I think he meant the jumper.

    I didn’t know that new mobster gets one time purchases. Now I fully agree it’s bs, old mobsters should get those one time purchases. I’m not even mobster and I think it’s stupid lmao
