Ok. Im not a big chainer or anything.. but i think i can understand enough about the subject to post this idea.
And I'm hoping the majority of Torn players like it.
So here it goes...
The idea is basically to benefit the player more than the faction.
When a faction chains the people actually chaining gain rep for that faction. But nothing special for themselfs.
My idea is in a few parts. Some you may like. Some you may not. Hopfully you like it all
This is the main part of the idea. (Personal Respect)
For each time you attack in a chain you gain 1 "Personal Respect" point for yourself.
This won't mean your losing 1 respect for your faction. It will be simple gaining one extra one for yourself.
With your personal respect you may spend it, just as a faction can spend thier respect. But more about that later on...
Personal respect can not be lost at all. Unless you spend it.
You can see someones current personal respect on thier profile
Age: 944 days
Rank: #15 Professional
Faction: The Mental Institute Personal Respect: 48
or by clicking [View stats] on thier profile.
So once again, 1 chain attack = 1 personal respect
This is the place where you can spend your personal respect.
It can be found in the east side of the city near the pawn shop.
Torn City Docks
Pawn Shop Respect Shop
Once in the shop you can pick what you want to buy or upgrade, or simply save up more respect for better rewards.
Everything below will be able to be bought/upgraded in the shop. Be warned, the rewards list is just an example of what rewards you can get.
5 Respect: 1 Ecstasy
10 Respect: Nerve Refill
25 Respect: 1 Xanax
50 Respect: Happiness Refill
75 Respect: Reduce Education Time By 24 hours
75 Respect: Energy Refill
75 Respect: Reduce Bank Investment Time by 24 hours
100 Respect: Remove 25% Drug Addiction
125 Respect: 75 Casino Tokens
150 Respect: Clear Drug Effect
150 Respect: Clear Cooldown Effect
200 Respect: 7 Donator Days
500 Respect: 2 Special Items
500 Respect: 250 Points
750 Respect: 31 Donator Days
1,000 Respect: Unlock New Attack (Headbutt maybe?)
1,000 Respect: One Merit
1,000 Respect: 1% Extra Gym Gains (Permanent & Stackable)
1,500 Respect: Random Stat Enchanter
2,500 Respect: Fully Upgraded Castle
5,000 Respect: Increase Strength By 2-5% Random
5,000 Respect: Increase Speed By 2-5% Random
5,000 Respect Increase Defence By 2-5% Random
5,000 Respect Increase Dexterity By 2-5% Random
5,000 Respect: Fully Upgraded Private Island
10,000 Respect: Two Of Each Stat Enchanters
20,000 Respect: Dirty Bomb
This new rewards list is more beneficial to the game and to the players.
As it won't be introducing more money into the economy. But some points.
Most players would prefer these types of rewards also.
There are 5 upgrades for each bonus.
The first upgrade in each bonus will cost 200 Personal Respect.
The second upgrade in each bonus will cost 400 Personal Respect.
The third upgrade in each bonus will cost 600 Personal Respect.
The fourth upgrade in each bonus will cost 800 Personal Respect.
The final upgrade in each bonus will cost 1000 Personal Respect.
The bonus shop will be a separate part of the Respect shop.
But will look just like the use merits page.
Each [ ] Is the upgrade button.
Luggage - Each upgrade allows you to take one extra item back from abroad. [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ]
Flight Time - Each upgrade will reduce flight times by 2% [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] (This will stack with Air Strip)
Tax - Each upgrade will reduce total upkeep cost by 5% [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ]
Working Stats - Each upgrade will give you an extra 5% working stats everyday [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] (Starter job and Companies)
Sales - Each upgrade will allow you to add one extra item to the market at the same time [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ]
I will be adding more and more as I think of them.
Remember, these rewards are just examples. If this is ever put into the game. Staff would probably make their own rewards.
Respect For Respect
This would be quite simple, basically you would be able to trade your Personal Respect for Faction respect.
When you go to "Donate to Faction" there would be a section at the top for respect.
You have 330 Personal Respect
How much do you want to Donate:
The trade ratio would be 3:1
So lets say you put 330 in the type box.
The confirmation screen would come up as.
Click confirm to donate 330 Personal Respect to your faction
This will be converted into 110 Faction Respest.
Please note: You will need to be a member of the faction you're donating to for 31 days to do this.
This is to try and prevent people selling respect off to random factions.
Personal Respect HoF
This is for those who want their the glory of being the best chainers out there.
It will show the top 20 players with the current most personal respect.
all the way down to Position 20.
And of course if you spend some of your respect you may go down in the HoF
Personal Respect Gained Merits/Honors
This part I was not sure if I should add it or not. But I did for now. Will see how it goes and what comments I get.
Anyways this would be a Total Personal Respect Gained honor you can unlock.
250 Respect - Getting Started
500 Respect - Warming Up
750 Respect - Team Player
1,000 Respect - Chainee
2,500 Respect - Bone Brusher
5,000 Respect - Respected!
10,000 Respect - Chained!
25,000 Respect - King of The Chains
Anyways thats the whole idea for now.
I will be more than happy if anyone wants to help me add new stuff to the idea. Just post or even send me a mail
Please comment and let me know what you all think so i can improve this suggestion as much as possible.
Personal Respect Gained Rank Trigers/Ranks
This oviously is for those who want to show off even more.
Something to aim for if you dont care about the HoF or rewards.
The total respect gained rank triggers would be:
500 Personal Respect Gained
2,500 Personal Respect Gained
5,000 Personal Respect Gained
10,000 Personal Respect Gained
Rank #26 Heroic
Rank #27 Mythic
Rank #28 Godlike
Rank #29 Ultimate Being
For the rank names. I will be happy to change them and add new ones as we progress this suggestion.
Special thanks to a few people that have helped me.
Tenshi: Helped make the rewards ratio more realistic.
MadameButterfly: Gave me the idea for Respect for Respect part of the idea.
Lukas: Helped with part of the new rewards list.
good ideas but, in the HoF, why dont you count the total PR of a player as well as the current, cosotherwise if people buy stuff they will go down the HoF, but if u count the ultimate total... could be ok and btw, why just chaining for PR, instead because it is (personal respect) why not u gain the respect for every attack you make yourself, or maybe extend it into not just attacking but other areasof the game where u may gain PR for doing things, woulddevelop the idea accross the game, and make more available to a bigger range of players, instead of just those in factions, but amazing ideai like it
