    The question for this issue is: What’s your favorite job perk and why?

    The winner to last week’s Meeptimes question was @Vexmae , who loved the teamwork involved in playing /warp cmobs!

    The Project: The Jobs Revamp
    [​IMG]
    What is the Jobs Revamp?
    The Jobs Revamp is a complete makeover for the previous jobs system that adds dozens of new features, balances, and benefits to make it worthwhile for any player to try their hand at. Read more about the thinking behind the system here.

    Who was involved in this project?
    Let’s talk!
    We interviewed a few avid players to get their thoughts on the new system.

    What are the biggest changes with the new jobs system?
    Way more money is the first thing, and also the perks. - @Magnoot

    Well I found the old jobs system was more about “here join them all and see how much money you can make going about your day”. Now we have rewards and incentives and a reason to actually try leveling up and grinding jobs. - @zsuzsu

    It’s creating a more competitive dynamic and people are noticeably enjoying earning meebles. It’s also fueling Klutz’s sneakily implemented clay monopoly. - @Achmed

    Well, for starters, there are a few different jobs that pay for a larger range of things than old jobs. Like artist for example, I can smelt thousands of clay and get paid for it. The cooperation aspect is also fun. I could hire diggers to get me clay, smelt the clay, then sell the smelted clay to builders. While a blacksmith makes the tools for the digger and the miner, and a miner gets me coal. They all work together fluidly. - @_Peero_

    How is it impacting Meep?
    Inflating the economy and bringing back more players. - @Magnoot

    Well, in my opinion it has already started to impact Meepcraft for the better. We have seen more players active and I would attribute that to the new jobs. As far as future I believe it holds a lot of positive growth. - @Philippians

    New jobs will make me really rich unless Clue changes it. Also the noobs that have no idea what they’re doing are going to suffer. - @LargeUnit

    I feel like it’s devaluing meebles. But at the same time allowing new players to gain substantial worth of their own. - @Epixaid

    More meebles for Achmed. I can make as much money at as great a rate as when I was duping. Just without the duping. It also seems very popular among players and is helpful in keeping new players. - @Achmed


    Definitely extremely positive. Player count has been up dramatically the past few days, and I’ve seen a lot of old players returning to play with the jobs. The economy is stimulated, cause new pwarps are beginning to open revolving around jobs, like mine and Clue’s clay pwarps. And overall it’s a new competitiveness with gtop to see who can be the best. Not to mention the perks that bring back a lot of old features everyone enjoyed, like silk mining spawners. - @_Peero_

    What’s your favorite job so far?
    I don’t have a favorite job really, just grinding out money and levels. Personally, I’ve been only using the builders job cause I want to get to level 100 before Alexxx. But after that I’ll be using the digging and mining jobs. - @Magnoot

    Both Hunter and Mystic go very well together. You need to acquire experience points to enchant your items for Mystic and you get the xp by grinding mobs and killing them which is good for Hunter. If I had to choose one to be my favorite, I would have to say mystic. I enjoy grinding for xp and then enchanting items. It is fun to see what I get and to then combine objects to create a better object that has more use to me. I suppose I kept it because I enjoy enchanting and grinding. - @Philippians

    Woodcutter! Woodcutter is my favorite job because I enjoy breaking logs. I also enjoy woodcutter because I make lots of money! - @LargeUnit

    I like blacksmith the most because I enjoy crafting items. Jobs now allowing stacked crafting is a great fix/addition. - @Epixaid

    Hunter and farmer because I like spawners a lot and cause I can capture random stuff by just shooting at it. - @zsuzsu

    Digger because I can make 2k every 10 seconds. And because I like gravel. - @Achmed

    That’s hard to choose, but I’d have to go with Artist. I can pretty much afk for a while and make money just from letting clay smelt. I have people sell me clay, which I just throw into the smelter. Then I make 9+ meebles per block, and each level it goes up. Me and Clue are having a bit of a competition over it as well. Though Clue has blacksmith level 50, so he is allowed to use 50 furnaces for artist, as opposed to my 25. Still a blast though. - @_Peero_

    What’s your overall opinion of the new system?
    I personally believe that it brings forth much opportunity. I would like to say it is much better than the old system of jobs. I like the concept of working for the perks as well. - @Philippians

    The new jobs system is very good! I think the new jobs system is going to break the economy! New jobs system is going to make rich people richer! Evil! - @LargeUnit

    8/10. It gud. It’s interesting. I like the perks. So it gud. - @Epixaid

    Well at first I was annoyed about some of the perks but after the first hour of being annoyed I eventually forgot about it. By then I had pretty much looked through all the jobs to find which I liked the best and settled on farmer and hunter. Sometimes it’s a bit tedious but overall it gives me something to do rather than endlessly random for raids. - @zsuzsu

    It is quite lit. But it’s great. Lots of money and I can feel the eco tearing at the seams. It allows me to buy all sorts of things I don’t need. - @Achmed

    It’s amazing. I love grinding the levels and the money I’ve made so far is a lot more than with the last jobs. It’s actually a lot of fun to level up. I prefer the leveling to the money in all honesty. - @_Peero_

    Tyler enjoying a nice walk in his personal rain in front of his pwarp, /pwarp iron.

    You’re a relatively new player. How and when did you find out about Meep?
    I found it on the servers website about a week ago.

    What’s been your favorite thing to do so far?
    Well I mean everything’s great but the thing I like the most is the meebles and shops system. It’s like real life but in a game with blocks so it’s kinda like real life.

    I hear you have a pwarp. How’s that going?
    Not very well. Not many people have been there, so I’m thinking of closing it soon.

    Oh no, that’s not good. Think we could get it some light in this Meeptimes issue?
    Yea.

    So, what do you do other than Meep?
    Play on my playstation 3. But now school started and it’s not going well either.

    What are your favorite games on that console?
    Battlefield 3, Minecraft, Grand Theft Auto 5, Hitman, and Call of Duty.

    I see you have batman posters on the wall of your house.
    Yes, and my blanket on my bed.

    You like superheros then?
    A few. #1 is batman.

    Why is he your favorite?
    It’s because he’s sneaky and hidden in the dark, he’s stealthy.

    If you were given 1 million meebles right now, what would you do with it?
    Give my friends some of it and what I have left buy something nice. Probably a nice house or a town if I still have enough for that.

    Anything else you’d like to add?
    Well I’m selling lots of stuff - iron, coal, food, and more at /pwarp iron.

    Even though I've not unlocked it yet, I'd say that my favourite perk would be the free /hdb heads, and ofc (once it comes out) /ast, I'm such an avid interior decorator, and I use the heads so much and it'd be nice to not pay for something that you'd pay 3k per on, and /ast is great for, well, anything, shops, houses, town spawns, you name it
