Are you a fan or a hater of the Beauty Coupon System? Now, I know we all love the models, so hold on a second. What I'm asking is your viewpoint of what should be done to change or improve this system. Most of us know that Beauty Coupons are only found in the Gachapon, but is it really as popular as the devs think it is?[Problem #1]
So who here is afraid to genderbend because they love their current face? Not only do Beauty Coupons make the Pons system obsolete, they remove key features of Mabinogi that kept it slightly modern. The rebirth system and exchanging NX for Pons. (Beauty Coupons prevent genderbending by turning it into an undesirable feature due to problems 3 and 4.)There are so many ways to fix this problem and bring back the player investments into Mabinogi. [Problem #2]
To be honest, the Dressing Room needs a revamp of it's own. Newbies and oldies HATE the old hairstyles. They lack the upgrades that Tir NPCs received and are hideous to even think about. [Problem #3]
Beauty Coupons create a pay to get the look you want via gambling, which is highly unappealing. [Problem #4]
The cost from Problem #3 to get and keep the look you want is far too high for the normal player. This is also very unappealing.[Solution #1]
The solution is simple, all Beauty Coupon options are the new Premium Options, while all the old Premium Option are free to anyone to use. After all, the current premium hair and eyes styles aren't all up to par with the artwork of competing MMOs and the recently added hairstyles. This way players can still rebirth the way they like, and the rebirth system won't seem like a barrier. [Solution #2]
Working with the Maplestory team to create a UI to save and use face, eye, and hair styles for Mabinogi characters is highly demanded and recommended. Just make sure you leave at least two slots open for free and the rest cost pons to unlock. Wouldn't want players to be upset by a complete pon system, now would you?[Solution #3]
The Unlock Option, widely discussed by players on having Beauty Coupons serve as a permanent unlock as opposed to one time use and many times a loss.[Solution #4]
Beauty Coupons as an alternative to buying a Pon option without having to spend any Pon[Solution #5]
The Aeria Games solution, making all the player appearance options in the Dressing Room and on Rebirth completely free for a seamless and flawless genderbend at no cost to the player, aside from the Cash Shop purchases of clothing for the next race or gender.
