Greetings Dudes and Dudettes! Since there´s a new stretch goal, some people started to complain about it, and the game as well. So I´ve thought, how could you make "Starting Pets" way more interesting, and came up with "Pet fights" (Players Pet vs Players Pet). I don´t know if someone mentioned that before, but I couldn´t find anything about it, so I´ll write my ideas down, now. As mentioned anywhere else, you´ll start with a pet, which only functionality is to follow you everywhere you go. That´s not that what many of us expected from the 1.000.000$ stretch goal. So I´ve thought about "Pet fights", in terms of a mini-game. You have to feed, train and play with your little pet. If you don´t feed it, it will die (no worries, it´s not dead forever. There could be something like a respawn time of 10 minutes). If you don´t train it, it won´t get stronger and won´t grow. And if you don´t play with it, it will be unhappy, which could decrease the stats of the pet. (Thought about extra stats just like "Strength", "Endurance" and a percentage chance to dodge an attack) First you have to figure out, which kind of food your pet likes the most. If you have a cat, you have to catch a mouse, fish or a bird for it. (There could be new crafting recipes, to do so). Everytime you feed and play with your pet will increase it´s happiness, which could also affect the other stats a bit. So if the bar is full, the pet will be pretty motivated to fight against other player pets. Compared to, if the bar isn´t full the pet will be unmotivated. There could be new crafting recipes just for pets, like a hamster wheel or a cat tree, to train them. It will increase "Strength" and "Endurance" if the pet is doing his/her work out. But be careful: The pet will be worn out after that, so be ready that it will be pretty hungry! And the dodging chance could also get increased by fighting against other players pet. So that´s it! What do you think about it? Feel free to add your ideas! PS: Sorry for my English. I know it isn´t the best, but it´s not my mother tongue, so I hope you guys can forgive me!
