I'm fairly new here and I'm slowly getting the hang of the site. That being said I have several Ideas for the expansion, possible improvement and more leveled field of play.
Concerning the latter, first I must let out this rant however.
The current Claim Waifu/Husbando system is broken and as it is, less and less people will eventually stay on the site. Why you may ask... it is really simple!
First, this mechanics are lazy, you can basically just go steal and resteal a waifu ad infinite, which is boring, and as I said promote laziness in RL.
Basically, the one with 'no life' (used as an understandable term, not to insult) no job and lots of free time wins??? Sorry but that's just crap! Should I quit my job to be Waifu hunting here? I am a foreman in a wood processing plant, where I have to monitor people operating dangerous machinery. Imagine someone get hurt IRL because I NTR'd someones Waifu on the Internet instead of checking, idk, the parameters on the hidraulic cutter? Seems ludicrous as you put it that way, no? I'm only 31 btw, not that old to have Waifus, so hush everyone
Then waifu claiming just to spite someone and NTR him ad infinite would drop significantly, trolls would run out of food very quickly. And let's be honest,people gets mad and really overprotective of their Waifus (I'm guilty of that too) and sometimes it bring out the worst in us forgetting we are roasting REAL people for IMAGINARY characters.
Not to bash or anything, but I played many games in my younger days with a lot more balanced playing field. The Idea behind the Waifu claiming/stealing is amazing and very unique and I tip you my hat into the ground using my Waifu's Jigen-tou!
I'll try to explain the mechanics this could work the best I can, as English is my third language.
First, just like the games I used to compete in for the weekly TPK (top player killer) here could be TWS (top waifu stealer or something...) BUT, only the ones competing would get the NTR status, the others would have Safe for the same Waifus, as they just want to 'hang out' with them not to get frustrated with NTR's every 30 seconds knowing they have no chance to accumulate any significant amount of time with them, and seeing that, new players will get discouraged to even try once enough of the 'Main Guns' will eventually become 'Overclaimed. That and those who would be quite temperamental because God forbid you love the same character and how you dare claim her and steal her from me.
Now, how to fix it? Quite easy!
First, you make a competition where anyone interested can pay a entrance fee, same as the guild that can assemble a Waifu hunting team. That way you get players to bond and all that jazz and you can implement both Solo TWS and Guild TWS. Not to mention it would make a great jewel sink.
The rules would be simple, since it is a weekly (you can make it monthly or whatever) competition, the entries are limited untill let's say Sunday noon server time and the competition itself starts at the first Sunday to Monday Server reset untill the next reset.
From there on the game begins for the one engaged in the WW and they would duke it between themselves and the rest of us common Ningens can enjoy our Waifus/Husbandos in peace. Think of it as having switched PvP on! You can run simultaneously a Solo Waifu and Husbano weekly competition as well as the Guild one for both! Massive cash sink right there!
What would factor the winner?
The time gathered with the Waifu as well as NTR points for each claim of someones Waifu.
This is when it get interesting, as Happiness could factor how many points you get per 'kill'. Let's say from 0-25% Happiness you get 2 NTR Points (NTRP), for 26-50% 4 NTRP, 51-75% 6 and 76-99% gets 8. 100% gets10 NTRP as to reward the one that keeps his waifu happy. Happiness would of course deteriorate much faster in this 'PvP mode' to make it more challenging and entertaining.
Let's say Time works for 1 hour with Waifu 1 NTR point (just an example). Now what would make it interesting is to either limit the times one can NTR a specific player or have a limit to how many times a Waifu can be Claimed in that day. This way it will be more tactical, as you wont rush to click like a maniac but youll think and make a long term plan.
Example: Player A NTR'd Player B 2 times already, but if C claims Waifu in the meantime then A is free to NTR him without the worry not to be able to retake it later if B claims again, see tactics, strategy... It is much more fun. The three Random bonus Items would prove to be most valuable here, as they are excluded from the max NTR per day.
As for Waifus/Husbandos, at the entry one will have to give in a list of, let's say 25 waifus he will enter the competition with (this is an example and it would deter cheaters to claim from the side or the competitors List get 'locked' for the duration of the competition.
Finally the Winner/Winning Guild would be unable to partecipate for a period 3-4 weeks after their win, as to not abuse the system and cock block others, so they too can try their luck at it if they wish.
The level of preparation that would be needed to enter (funds, cards...) would make people work hard for it, and you could always find one week to burn for fun, no?
Obviously, at the start of the competition, the points and Waifu Timer for all selected Waifus would be reset. (that's why I said better to enter with some, so you can protect your very special ones from being reset, but I'm sure this could be worked with).
Whooa, what a wall of text. I apologize for it.
Anyways, what do you think about it? As always, details coud most likelly be worked out fixed, as well as the rules and such, in case there is possible exploit one could abuse.
Also, sorry for my bad English again.
