    I agree that some people have gone a bit overboard with what they have and what they bring out. That said, a lot of complaints I have heard come from people who were holding on to pets to sell at a high price and that has been destroyed with all of them being common now. So they are ticked that they didn't sell earlier. Not everything has to be snatched up and hoarded away, it has been nice to get the couple of minipets I actually wanted. Hell, was looking for the stupid chipmunk for many decades in the game.

    The tradein seems like a good solution.

    As for the one person that said you can't get them out of your inventory, you can but you need a house and a room upgrade to store them, its the stable under help housing upgrades. Not a perfect solution for everyone but it is an option.

    I always assumed cranking out minipets (and bazaar items) was a celani promotion test

    I could kinda go a couple of months without new things being released every 10 days. I feel like the admin seem to be slipping a bit in quality with the need to churn out quantity. No offense meant, but have a break, have a kitkat, take another week to brainstorm ideas. Maybe cut back from having to release three batches of new things each month and chill at two or one. 
     
    Except the new class, you can release that shit whenever you want.



    Also, anyone else feel like they've released the Mayasween items a month early? Shoes, rubber balls, clown vials... all creepy as hell and I refused to believe the next class is a clown class :(

    There are 2 corpses of a skeletal kitten here. 

    Shattered fragments of bone lie in a pile.
    He weighs 7 ounce(s).
    He is loyal to Halos.
    You see nothing in it.

    You can definitely use ISSUE ME to request a minipet be removed. It has to be your minipet, and you just need to include the creature's ID.

    Making them tradein like the promo minipets at 5cr per would make sense would it not? It's not worth so much it's going to be a game changer but it gives players an instant opt out option. Saves admin time from issues as well.

    The other thing I've noticed and I'm sure other have is people don't pick up their minipets after death. Hunting catacombs and there's that random fluffy bunny x6 family watching you kill a lich. Small pet death caches seem to be everywhere. It's almost like a pet store gravestone marking your last death.

    This kind of diminishes the perceived value of the beanie babies though

    I have about twenty crates from the Death promotion, and I don't see why Zulah going absolutely nuts on this particular promotion makes the minipets from it so special that they alone get to be traded in. Kind of annoying that whether or not I can convert something useless into something with actual value (credits) is dependent on which promotion I spent money on the game during.

    I just realized that the title of this thread could have been "minipets or minipests". Dislike for lost opportunity.

    My site will remain up, but will not be maintained. The repository will continue to have scripts added to it if I decide to play another game. Maybe I'll see you around in Starmourn!

    I do feel like that minipets hit quantity over quality Ages ago. I think we could stand to take a break on them and focus on things like city direction and work or stuff but one of those things makes money and the other just causes me endless consternation

    @Annwyl This command is only for the new mounts/minipets available this month, not the minipets you might gain from opening a collections cache.

    I personally would hate to have a minipet just deleted. Right now you get them from purchased spins, so that's a 25 credit value at the very least. Getting pets and not wanting the crates (which never sell) or the pets and just asking for them to be deleted is a huge waste of money for the players. That seems like a serious logical disconnect to me.

    Due to the over-saturation in every promo like this where it's chance based to get an item (and the percentage of certain items is undoubtedly higher than others) it would really be amazing if the minipets were valued at no less than the price of the spin/globe/etc. Yes, players would still be taking a hit because the trade in value would be less than the 25 credits, but at least it'd be something. Of course, it'd be nice if it were higher because past promos had them valued around 50 credits (globes).

    I can only imagine it'd help the game as well to get rid of the sheer amount of crated (or uncrated) pets. It's kind of like a shower with a clogged drain right now. :(

    Edit: Forgot about collections caches... those can go too. Neat in theory to help the few that want a very specific pet, but it's Just another way to get -more- mini pets.

    Speaking of, I've got twenty more or so to throw at people :)

    Been handing minipets out to novices that go out of their way to help others, or just be amazing in general (not those who are obvious seconds). They seem to really enjoy them :D
    Huh. Neat.

    I can happily say that I have 0 mini-pets. I've won a fair few on the promo's over the past year but have either managed to sell or regift them.

    It's kind of a point of pride for me now.
