In response to some feedback, I feel it's time we run a poll to see how players feel about making the larger backpack more accessible. My fear with adding them to the speciality tab of the black market is that it eliminates the economy from players who buy in bulk when they're in rotation on the shop, or from players who get lucky enough to loot one.

There are currently two options we can use to make them more obtainable:

A) Add them to the specialty tab (which would eliminate all economy)
B) Add them to the donation store (would keep some economy as a good portion of players prefer not to spend)

Of course, option B sounds based (it is), but players have been able to create a nice economy around selling donation store items in-game, so this would somewhat hold on to the value of large backpacks. Either way, this is up to you.

EZ store all the way!! Because of donations would help you out with all the server and service that you have made for everyone that plays on your server. Not only that you can still run around finding them if you don't want to pay / donate. Having it on specialty tab will just make it to easy! and the economy will be dying. Death i hope they go with option B!!!!

100% agree with MiniRED, donation store would be my choice.  This way you can grab one if you like and get the rest via regular game play.  Specialty tab would be too damaging to economy in my opinion.

Store only. If it’s going to be in the BM buy tab, it may as well be in the specialty items because the player economy around it sinks as soon as it appears. I think the player economy would benefit most from it only being available via EZ store and as a natural, rare in-game find.

The issue I find with it being a EZ Store red light special is that $2 is a bit much for one backpack. If it was a special backpack with a very large storage capacity I could justify it but if its the standard large back pack it wouldnt be the bang for the buck worth buying it.

Rust's Backpack update has been into the game for couple of months now and currently, the way this server uses them, i don't think it impacted anything at all and just merged in-game well. Choosing options besides "Leave it as it is", i'm afraid it will impact the players individual perspectives and gameplay in their own different ways.

EZ Store.

Let me articulate this a bit better. My game style does not lend itself to finding large backpacks. I have yet to find a large backpack on the server in a crate as I don’t frequent the monuments apparently the large backpack are found on the Oil rigs. I don’t go to those as my game play is not about killing everything or getting killed by everything. I enjoy banging things with rocks and sticks and growing stuff. I’m not fast enough and my hand eye coordination does not let me be particularly good at hitting stuff in a rapid succession.

I let the guys that only have a few hours of game play take the monuments and try and have a good time when they are here. I don’t have any problems purchasing backpacks from other players. Its not about the digital currency its about enjoying myself and the community when I’m here.

OR if people are afraid it will break the economy of rust by adding it to the store for 2 dollars why not make it 5 dollars each and have a nother option of 3 backpacks for 14 dollars. It could be like you could buy one for 5 dollars or 3 for 14 dollars and save 1 dollar. I see no difference between how the pumpjacks effect the economy compaired to the backpacks. In all honesty i think the vips should get a one time claim of a large backpack per wipe, to replace the old /backpack command. This might in term lead to more people buying vip again resulting in more money going to the server and death.
