I think that changing the sell value of plushies caught in the arcade from units to tickets would make the process of getting a large amount of tickets a little more interesting. The sell value in units was recently nerfed so they wouldn’t be such a strong source of units. It’s still good if you can catch rare plushies consistently but giving players a new way to earn tickets would be a fun addition and at least make the ticket grind a bit more varied. Being able to sell for units or tickets could be interesting too.
A wowazela needs to be earned with suffering. I’m happy I earned bank with plushies while I could. Maybe an NPC where you can trade some items for tickets. Some weird guy under the stairs.
