Today I was born into my 4th life. I am currently pre-genesis by obvious reasons (read last sentence...), and there is quite a problem... All my 3 Reborns have rewarded me with Quantum Ore Cleaners. As many know, only one can be used one ores unless you have a Tesla Resetter.
My friend complained about being born into his 4th life and all he had received were Industrial Firecrystal Mines. He's now on his 6th life the last time I checked up on him (past genesis) and it still seems that he has only firecrystals.
Before you reach Genesis, you are restricted to what reborn items you can get because some are powerful (Take Newtonium Mine for example; it's a Genesis-Exclusive and powerful) or others are just restricted. Thus, there are such not many items you can get. It's all random but the less variety there is, the more common you'll roll something you already have. It's not major mathematics to understand, but more of common sense.
To be born into another life, it takes 25Qn for the first life. After that, it goes up by 25Qn. The problem is that it generally gets harder. It's not too bad if you got good reborn items, but if you got 3 Quantum Ore Cleaners like me, getting to 100Qn is going to take awhile while someone could farm Firecrystal on Nature's Grip... Someone with a more variety of reborns would typically make Genesis faster, or should I say more efficient, than someone with duplicates of 1 item.
Preposal: Pre-Genesis Handicap
Now that we have introduced the problem, it's time to consider the proposal. "Pre-Genesis Handicap". Pre-Genesis Handicap is an idea I've invented that's supposed to somewhat help players with passing Genesis. It's nothing much, but I think it is nice.
Pre-Genesis Handicap introduces a system that either prevents duplicates all entirely or makes it not likely. That means if you are born into your 2nd life and get a Frozen Justice, you are less likely to get another one when you are born into your 3rd life. This allows for more of a variety for players to make entricate setups or start to see how Reborn Items are a massive game-changer in Miner's Haven.
Though this does generate the problem like, "will it affect my earnings after Genesis?" The answer is no. The prefix, "pre' means before. If it means before-genesis, then that means it only effects players before genesis. Here are some more problems with a solution.
- Q: What if I want to get another _____?
- A: There is a possibility to get it after Genesis. Also, you could possibly get one before Genesis (Pre-Genesis), but as I provided it makes it highly unlikely. After Genesis, this handicap should be removed so that you can still get dupes.
MORE TO COME. PLEASE PROPOSE SOME
