Builders Club is Coming…

A watershed release is due out soon. I’m not one to hype an upcoming release with a vortex of hyperbole that becomes a maelstrom which threatens to consume this entire community in such frenzied excitement that it is all that they can do to break out into spontaneous episodes of dancing the Macarena while wearing buckets with eye-hole cut-outs as hats in order to keep their heads from exploding, but ladies and gentlemen, I must tell you, this next release is going to be awesome (I mean “awesome” in the purest, most heart-breakingly beautiful sense of the word, you know “.a.w.e.s.o.m.e.”). I think it’s fair to say human civilization may never be the same.

Builders Club

We will release Builders Club to the general public sometime in the coming week or two! Builders Club is a premium subscription service designed to enhance the ROBLOX experience for enthusiastic players. Players will not be required to upgrade to Builders Club in order to enjoy the full-featured online building experience that they enjoy today. Revenue from BC subscriptions will be cycled back into product development to further improve and expand ROBLOX.

Advantages of joining Builders Club include:

  • You can create up to five places on one account.
  • You will not see any ads on Roblox.com for external sites.
  • You receive the exclusive Builder’s Club construction hard hat.
  • You will get a shiny BC badge on your profile page.
  • You can sell stuff (just shirts for now) to other users.
  • You get a daily allowance of 15 ROBUX (~450 R$ per month).

Membership can be purchased for a month, 6 months, or a year. Our initial rates will be:

  • $5.95 for a month
  • $29.95 for 6 months
  • $57.95 for a year

When your membership expires, you keep your five places and the exclusive hat. All other benefits disappear at that time.

ROBUX, Tickets, and the Economy

We are introducing a new type of money called “Tickets” and are moving to a dual currency economy. Items in the Catalog will be sold for Tickets, ROBUX, or both. We are increasing the daily login bonus. The login bonus and the traffic bonus will both be awarded in tickets.

Tickets

  • Earn 10 per day by logging in to your Roblox account
  • Earn 1 whenever someone visits your place
  • Earn Tickets when people buy your items
  • Spend Tickets to buy items in the Catalog

ROBUX

  • Earn 15 per day with a Builder’s Club allowance (no login required)
  • Earn ROBUX when people buy your items
  • Spend ROBUX to buy items in the Catalog

Clockwork and Stoecker have been working on some exciting new items that will be sold for tickets only. Check these out:

The Future of Roblox

We will carefully balance new features as we roll them out to keep the free ROBLOX fun and challenging, while offering great additions for members of Builders Club. We expect many ROBLOX users to play for a long time without ever joining Builders Club. The money we collect from Builders Club dues will cycle directly back into product development, increasing the quality and scope of ROBLOX! We are excited by the prospect of growing a solid business while simultaneously offering the only “kid safe, free-to-play, physically-simulated virtual world” on the Internet.
