In order for GUNROX to be worth advertising and driving new players in we have to do something about toxicity level in the community. Many new players won't stay when they will see insults right from the start. We have tried different solutions - appointing moderators, giving silences, but some trolls and toxic players simply won't stop. Therefore we have to take more radical measures which proved to be very helpful in our other online game.
New Common Chat
In this update common chat from all locations joined into one, but writing to it is limited and requires special Megaphone
ability. On this update all players above level 1 receive 5 of these abilities for free. Also each level-up awards 5 of such items as well. Chance to get megaphone has been added to recycling. Finally, megaphones are sold on cash shop for 1000E per 10 items, but we don't expect people to buy it. It was intentionally added to the shop at such a high price so players would value those items and use them wisely (to call for mega, etc.). Hopefully players would flood less and play more now.
All other messages (in-game, private, clan, lobby) do not require megaphone and can be used just like before.
You can send message into trade channel once per 15 minutes now. Moderation of trade channel would be strict now. All unrelated messages there would be punished with long silence.
- Confirmation popup when sending message to the common chat (can be switched on/off in options)
- Level 1 players cannot send messages into common chat at all
- Small Ammunition Box reward slightly improved
- Fixed bug when someone buys your art and you are playing the game, location chat tab was open
