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.

Lowlander2;4866628 said:Not true, RB World has one such leaderboard.
GNFfhqwhgads;4866612 said:So what you're saying is the reward for Gold Starring Stronger, The Wicker Man, and Cult of Personality should be Coins, even though going for those means you're good AND grinding?That doesn't make sense. With your 'compromise', every CHALLENGING Goal is worthless to everyone, and every Goal is worthless to those who are the hardcore enough to do most of the Goals with their gametime.
hodayathink;4866652 said:Also, I don't think you should get your coins back for choosing to restart a song. No reason I can clearly state at the moment as to why I think that way, but I do. All you have to do is finish the song to get some (if not most) of your coins back. Is that really that hard? Are you really that pressed for time?
hakko504;4866708 said:the early powerups should maybe only cost 50 or 10 coins to use where the late (better ones) should cost more than today, maybe 500 coins.
GNFfhqwhgads;4866710 said:Better is entirely relative to what you're doing and how you play. Flame Notes is worthless if you lock yourself on a lane, level it up all the way, change lanes. Meanwhile, it becomes absolutely destructive if you pair it off with Jackpot and can switch efficiently on a whim.
