hodayathink;4866188 said:It's not that hard to figure out how it would play without the coins. You'd be able to play with all three power-ups every time no question as long as you've unlocked them with cred. Goals and score wars would probably just have a console-based achievement/trophy attached to them instead of coin bonuses.
MemoDLSG;4866244 said:Can anyone who likes coins specify why? (Concisely, and without snark; I gave up halfway through the other thread). Also, let me first anticipate the following reasons:"I have enough coins because I have a large DLC library/like to play different songs."Nice, but still, you'd be able to play like that even if there were no coins."I like to play without powerups.""I like the Facebook integration (Score Duels and Goals)."To both, I answer: great, but you could still enjoy that even if there were no coins."I'd like to get a reward for Score Duels and Goals."Now this is valid; I'd say, however, that coins are not needed. You could be rewarded in Blitz Cred and there wouldn't be any problem then.If there is any other valid reason for keeping coins (when their negative side has already been well established) I'd love to hear it, cause I haven't seen/can't think of any. I'll admit as I don't like the coin system I could be biased and therefore can't think of something obviously positive for coins, which is why I ask.

jibjqrkl;4866311 said:and you should also consider that with a few tweaks to the system the "dont want coins" would fall in the don't care category
Hairy_Cabbage;4866314 said:well then heres to hoping these "tweaks" happen.
jibjqrkl;4866259 said:just saw a Tweet from John Drakehttps://twitter.com/johntdrake/status/242387277274288128at least they seem to be willing to tweak it.Which i agree on that that might be a bit necessary

hodayathink;4866611 said:This is why I think the best compromise is to make high scores at least coin-neutral (i.e. gold starring [or even 5* if they're being generous] any song nets you 750 coins). So if you're good enough and going for a high score, you don't have to worry about it. And the goals from coins could/would then be primarily for the people who aren't good enough to consistently do that well, which would probably be most people that play the game.
