    Cosmetic Committee - There’s a map committee, why not an item committee? Give it a Discord channel/role where feedback can be given on items that could be added? We could come up with themes or collection ideas; Season 14 could be a collaborative effort with the community, or there could be a summer crate? I’m interested in this because Season 13 items are soo stale. I’m also kinda interested in modeling some items? Overall, some standards for suggesting items to be added would be cool. I know it’s tricky with the different playermodels and some things just don’t work, but it’s worth gathering a bunch of suggestions until a few good ones work.

    Item Revisions - Items are inconsistent with restrictions and some icons are duplicated. I don’t keep holiday items in my inventory because of hidden restrictions. There are many Halloween items that someone forgot to put the holiday restricted tag in the description (and they are still halloween only). On occasion, players will sell those on the playermarket, and someone will unknowingly purchase them. During my first holidays with BB I got items like that and expected to be able to use them after the event, but they were restricted. The bubble bucket has the same icon as the regular bucket, … I suggest an icon like this for the bubble bucket.

    Remove Holiday Items From The Crafting Pool - It shouldn’t be possible to craft holiday exclusive cosmetics. Nobody wants to spend the time crafting a hat they can only wear for a couple of weeks of the year; it's bad. Remove holiday items from the crafting system.

    Flashlight Preview - Flashlight previews will help people know what they’re buying. I don’t want to use emotes to preview them; I’m not even sure if all the flashlight noises have emotes?

    Unusual Flashlight - A flashlight that plays a 1x unusual effect. Give the effect a cooldown so it isn’t spammed. It would be quite neat to use it for celebrating PB’s and PR’s. Effects like balloons/confetti or snow? More for fun, and if it's not included as an item, maybe add it to the Anniversary/Christmas mode instead?

    Act Items - Make items that play an act once, have no sound, and don't affect others. Imagine completing a lap and the character automatically does the act cheer or dance. Originally I considered it for the surf race rewards/achievement item tho; perfect cheer item tbh.

    Vanquisher Crown - A special item that only the vanquisher gets; when that player loses vanquisher rank, they also lose access to the item, and the new #1 gets it. I don’t think there’s any reward for vanquisher besides the rank, so this would be fun. I like how The Dueler from TF2 looks. Give it a nice unusual effect, or maybe have the effect change every day? This could be extended to the top 10 players and give them The Philateler. I hope to add incentives for players to reach the upper ranks, maybe to increase competition, but mainly because cosmetics earned through skill are way cooler.

    Unusual Recycling -
    Unusuals could be traded up into jars. I like this concept for how this would work; we have the same idea. Put 5-6 unusuals in, and get a jar based on what effects the unusuals had, by chance. This will open up some nice crafting opportunities since most old effect jars are locked in player inventories (not returning or not willing to trade), old crates (untradable), consumed, or hit the market overpriced, and nobody can afford it.

    Crate Revision - Is there any progress on crate revision? Season 13 drop rates suck compared to the old crates. Going forward, more transparency about the crate outcomes would be appreciated. I can’t find any information on the current loot pool, and when I asked Teddi the info he gave me was incorrect. A forum post with all the possible items in a crate and their chances would be excellent.


    PR Leaderboard - Separate leaderboard only for Perfect Runs.

    Cube Increase - Climb should also have midweek bonus cubes like surf. PR’s should give more than a typical completion.

    Freespec - Very useful in climb for figuring out the route and skips.

    Climb Achievement Item -
    Edmund Hillary - Egypt is actually beatable so I suggest unusual legwear with particles & mini trails + a climb god title could be a nice reward for that pain.


    The achievement system would be better if they were all obtainable. Also, I think some have aged very badly. Cones and Buckets don’t drop from current crates, so it’d cost me ~7,605,000 cubes to buy them and then I gotta destroy them all? why ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) A way to hide the legacy/unobtainable/duplicate achievements would be good. Are these admins still active to get this achievement?


    Random Map Option - This hasn’t been declined yet. Is this still being considered??

    Donations - An option to get legacy platinum benefits for ~250$. No expiration date, one-time purchase.There are players interested in permanent platinum.

    Loadouts - This would be very convenient, I hope there’s a way it can be added in the future, with an unequip all button to go with it.

    Unlockable Playermodel - All of the playermodels are donor only. Trails make sense because if everyone had one it’d be a mess. But there could be at least one new playermodel unlockable through an achievement.

    Seasonal Rewards - Increase the chance of unusuals in winner crates; it seems low.

    Trail and Aura - I really want to see the suggested trails and Pluto's sunset aura be added. Here’s screenshots of the trail I want compared to the trail already available, it is different.

    Bugs & Typos

    Race Typo - The command !racequit works fine, the typo is just visual in /grouphelp options. "!racequite"

    Race Bug - Invite anyone to start a group; they do not have to accept. Start a race. Now, anytime the invited players reset themselves, you will get the DNF message as if they were part of the race. Here’s a demo.

    Not as Easy as They Say Achievement - "Complete all the the easy server maps" typo.

    Verge, Scarlet, Antimatter2 - On the map lists, they are named surf_verge, surf_scarlet, and surf_antimatter2; remove the surf_

    Platinum Freeze Bug - Chaco reported this bug in 2020, and it’s still affecting the freeze function. Basically, bb_surf_freeze yourself, reset, and you’ll still be frozen.. It happened a lot to me because I used the freeze command & savestates, so it would be nice to get that fixed.

    Platinum Icons Not Appearing - If I’m not platinum, usually it doesn't show the platinum badges on the tab-leaderboards, only in chat. It always works if I have platinum, and I see everyone's platinum badge. Many others have this issue too; can this be fixed?

    Holiday Items Don’t Trigger Achievements Outside of Holiday - If a player gets a holiday item outside of the holiday, it won't trigger the achievement. Players are unboxing holiday crates all the time still, so it should be fixed to work as intended.

    Discord Platinum Roles Don’t Get Removed - The Discord bot isn’t working to check who isn’t platinum anymore… we could keep it like this tho ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    Out Of Date Info In The Menus - The rewards are not being updated for the season in the F1 menu and the link to view reward scaling is out of date.
