Since the use of BC seems to cost MT some money in server upgrades and maintenance (and moreover the downtimes affect their reputation in terms of quality of their services), I was just wondering how could MT benefit from the huge success of mybrute without losing its base of users and without penalizing the players that do not make use of BC. One route would be based on the level of addiction of BC players.

Since it rather unlikely for any brute to gain e.g. 1'000 pupils without the use of BC, one idea would be that if someone wants his brute to have more than 1'000 pupils (and therefore continue to use BC or any such tool to create new pupils) he would have to pay for unlocking this ability for a given brute.
For example, my brute SuperBrute has now 1'000 pupils, and I pay 1 EUR for being able to create X new pupils for SuperBrute up to a threshold of 1'000+X pupils.

I was just curious about your level of addiction in pecuniary terms, hence this poll...

I think you're asking the wrong question. Right now, full BC users get all that for free with little effort after setup. Why would they pay anything? You can get all that and more just by turning on BC and leaving it running for the day. Furthermore, if you didn't have BC, how exactly would you create even 1,000 brutes, one at a time by hand? Do you know how long that would take? If you could make one pupil per minute, it would take you 17 hours, which is a long time to sit in front of the computer clicking over and over again and thinking up names.

If you want a real model of pay for addiction, look at the iPhone game. You buy fights, not pupils, in blocks of 100. Suppose you could buy 100 fights for your brute for 1 EUR, would you pay?

@Teethymo: yes, you are right, but my point was just to see how to make pay the people who are at the (probable) source of the pretty hefty and costly hardware requirements. I don't think these people are iPhone players though ;-)

The only way to make the botters pay is to first take away their ability to make pupils for free. Then they will pay for pupils, or quit. And yes, a few of them are iPhone players!

Oops, my fault for just reading the title Laughing

Anyway paying to be allowed for an amount of pupils would be stupid, the service should be free, MT would prohibit players from actually playing mybrute and just scare 'em away overtime.
