@falling_silence @madscienced
I agree with all of you. I support rereleases. But when a rerelease happens, the rarities of the rare and sought after species will drop down dramatically. For instance, let us take the Balrogipuwet. The Balrogipuwet used to be only available for completing the The Mystery of Ghosty Plot, which was nearly impossible to complete. Therefore, only those who comlpeted The Mystery of Ghosty Plot were eligible of claiming a Balrogipuwet, so only 251 Balrogipuwet's were released in 2009. But then, It was later re-released in the Cash Shop Park in July of 2011. I know it wasn't that far away, but still. Balrogipuwet's rarities dropped down dramatically, they weren't as rare as they used to be.

@firedawn Dropping its rarity down to a value that's affordable is something I'd like to see.

If anything, I think this will help what balance the value.

Rarity and value are also somewhat different (imo, and they may have a small correlation).

Rarity might drop because there will be more creatures.

Values might be affected, but if it's a popular creature, it will still be wanted.

The Christmas Rerelease, based on what I heard, caused a panic scare in values. However, Foos are still wanted and valuable.

Moreover, the rerelease does not mean that Ian will be putting many creatures into the cave or easily available, etc, but giving us a chance to give the creature.

Quiet honestly, I don't really care about the value drop (let my creatures value drop).

On a bigger note, creature values are just going to go up. There will be more creatures available and old creatures will slowly become impossible to get.

What about a raffle? xD Every once in a while, 5 or so active people will be chosen to be able to obtain a retired (not a CSP) creature from some options. ^-^ It's a nice way to help the users build up to their dream cove or whatever.

PS: This wasn't really thought out, it was kind of just an idea. Don't hate please. c:

I still think there should be a special shop which has all the retired creatures available at all times, but you'd only be able to buy them using special points you accumulate by visiting the website every day.

Creature prices would be based on how old the creature is and how it was released. The prices would also be high, it should take some effort to get retired creatures. This would keep rarities both from dropping enormously on rerelease and from rising so far creatures become unattainable.

This would allow players to get any creature, but not all creatures. It would be utterly impossible to save up for a full set, so there'd still be plenty of incentive to trade. I just think everyone should be able to get their dream pets...

We've talked about a raffle before, and yeah, I like the idea. I just wish some users wouldn't be so....closed to the idea. Like there's a way to make it fair for everyone.

A thought inspired by @dionaea 's post:

The rare creature shop's currency -(could be a special egg coin)- could be received from clicking in the Click Exchange, with a very low drop rate. I recall a system like this from the click critters website.

This incentive could motivate more people to use the Click Exchange too.

I like that idea, it would help people's creatures evolve/immortalize faster at the same time which would be super helpful to a lot of users

Like falling_silence said, that would be helpful in evolving creatures but it may also tempt users to break the "clicking from only one IP" rule.

I really like this idea, I think it would be a fair way for people to achieve their dream pets by putting in enough work to get them^^

mrsgiggles Here's a big rude gesture to the cave. I give up. This is stupid.

The rarest pets belong to people who will never trade them, although they may be tempted to do so if you cough up an unhealthily large amount of real life money. The majority of Doovoo, in fact, belong to a single account, so good luck getting one.

I don't see why EC can't re-release retired pets that are 5 years old or more.

metaphor Just realized I have two creatures named after Elton John songs.

Yes, that is just the thing! It makes no sense to fret over a lot of these scarce creatures "flooding the market" because 1. a lot of people who will buy them will probably keep them for themselves and not trade anyway, 2. If the creatures stay in as high demand as they are now, they will quickly be traded (see Christmas re-release).

Anyway, I look forward to seeing what the future holds.
