This week, UGC limiteds launched and a few of them were set at the price of free as a promotion. Users were able to claim these limiteds upwards of 10+ times, preventing many people from claiming one. Free limiteds should be 1 per user and checked with funcaptcha to prevent alt bot accounts from claiming all of them, so that UGC creators can more easily spread free limiteds among users, rather than have them scalped.
This seems like an oversight of the feature, as old limiteds were 1 per person, and the new ones having multiple purchases seems to be so people can spend more robux on them, which is good, but when they are free it doesn’t make sense to allow.
Functionally taking as many as you want makes the most sense. But both as a creator and as a user, I think it could be more engaging to have them limited at initial sale in some way to prevent this. Maybe some kind of setting for the creator. It would also be awesome if creators could hand out assets from their experience in a way that the experience can control the distribution, and that the user can accept without it being jammed into their inventory.
With free UGC limiteds it makes sense to be limited to 1 per person to not reward malicious activity (macro/bot using), spam filling pages in inventory with one item and denying other people from also taking the item because of too many purchase requests.
Heck why not give the UGC creators the option to set a purchase quantity limit?
More people lose out on these free UGC items then those who gain something by allowing multiple free item copies per user. Why? Because so many people are simply not quick enough or are just unlucky due to factors out of their control.
Also please fix the “Invalid arguments” error too!
But also, there not normal Limited’s these are limited u so there are a limited amount and as such there should be no limit to how many should be owned because of such things as collectors like myself.
i have changed my opinion on this matter. I was just trying to purchase a limited U and it was saying “invalid argument” I didn’t get limited u so Maby 5 or so per person wouldn’t be such a bad thing but 1 per person would cause people to make alts to attempt to get more than 1 so that shouldn’t be a option.
I’ve never understood why you were able to price UGC limiteds as free to begin with.
I like the concept, but on paper if you make something free and allow ANY user to purchase it with a limited timeframe or some sort of stock, the issue of bots will arise.
I believe they should allow UGC creators to make normal, non-limited UGC items, free.
If roblox doesn’t want to provide free options for the younger audience of roblox, they should atleast allow them to do it.
I’m also shocked that they haven’t allowed UGC creators to reward players with hats for getting badges as well. It’d be cool to see what people would do with this feature.
It seems that people will make alt with or without these changes. I myself was tempted to make a alt to make profit from these “free Limited’s”. In fact, I made the alt I had decided to not use it for the reason that i would be no Beter than people stealing from others.
I think the real solution here is implementing a price floor on UGC limiteds. Will it be controversial? Probably. But it does not make any sense that limiteds can be made free yet regular items cannot be priced below 15 Robux. Almost all of the free limiteds are being claimed by nonpremium users, meaning they will likely never be resold. Free limiteds are ruining the entire concept of UGC limiteds.
Agreed i’m about to renew my premium so i can resell limiteds and limited u. But the problem with reselling free things for like idk 15 robux would be like a scam cuz people had the option to buy it for free.
I agree with this, What’s the point to making it free in hopes users get to hear about you as a creator when one bot account buys X copies for itself and scalps it one month later when people are able to sell them.
Yes but if u take into account that the last egg hunt has free thing that r now limiteds u still had to work to get the eggs. Unlike these were people r just boting limited for selfish reasons to make profit.
