This is a pretty simple suggestion, one that I believe has the potential to benefit the site as a whole, increasing overall activity and providing a tangible incentive for general site interaction.

The premise is pretty simple: For every 10 Trainerlevels a player achieves, they receive one Egg Storage slot added to their Storage Boxes. We all know that Egg Storage gets expensive after just a few slots, and that's a separate discussion entirely, but I think providing a second way to get them occasionally via Trainerlevel milestones would help not only with the pricing issue at least a little bit for newer users, but would also reward players, new and old, for their overall activity on Pokéheroes.

These hypothetical Trainerlevel Egg Storage slots would not affect Egg Storage prices at all, and players would still be able to purchase them using the existing system of progressive pricing; I believe it would be relatively simple to add a background function for the site to keep track of which Egg Storage slots are purchased vs. earned, and therefore know what to charge for a new Egg Storage slot.

This hypothetical feature would immediately have, in my opinion, pretty solid balancing to not overthrow the existing system of increasing Egg Storage slots, because Trainerlevels become harder to achieve the higher you go. Players who have been active for years would have somewhere between 5 and 15 extra slots added for the most part, despite being on site for most of a decade.

Take myself as a quick example; after Riako adjusted Trainerlevel points a few years ago, I have been slowly inching my way back towards Trainerlevel 100 after being dropped to Trainerlevel 89, and I am still only Trainerlevel 98. Currently, for 7 years and some change under my belt on Pokéheroes, I'd be eligible for 9 Egg Storage slots from this hypothetical system.

With that said, I think that's everything. Let me know your thoughts or further suggestions? I'll edit this post occasionally to add any compelling suggestions you guys have to share. Thanks for reading!

EDIT #1: March 17th 2023 - A couple of users so far have suggested lowering the amount of Trainerlevels needed for another Egg Storage slot once you reach certain thresholds, to mitigate the exponential jump in points needed to level up at higher levels.

One player suggested the example of changing the amount of levels per milestone from 10 to 5, once a player reaches level 80 or 90. The milestones for each Egg Storage slot with this suggestion would look something like this: 10 -> 20 -> 30 -> 40 -> 50 -> 60 -> 70 -> 80 -> 85 -> 90 -> 95 -> 100 ->...

I thought of this possibility when drafting the suggestion originally. However, my logic was that the higher you go in Trainerlevel and the more Egg Storage milestones you reach, the harder it should be to reach the next one, to keep balance with the existing system. This edited portion is for the sake of open discussion, to see what people have to say about it.

support! Lots of egg storages are mostly a late game thing (event hunts, lati@s, non-summon legend hunts) so this would definitely help older players!

Maybe some kind of scaling where the higher your trainerlevel, the fewer levels you need to get the next storage, since higher levels are significantly slower

Egg-Storage belongs to the most expensive stuff on pokeheroes.

This would help everyone, users without much storage or without storage at all could save themselves when adopting a wrong egg and older users get rewarded for being active and keeping ph running :D

Oh my god please! I would love this feature and would actually make me become more of a regular player back when the levels were lower because I need more egg storages so much! Like yes yes and every 7/10 levels would be just the right amount to keep earning more without making it feel like such a slog! It also gives those who are a lower level to try it out without having to spend so much money too! because they are just that expensive :sob: xD

Yes Yes Yes is my answer though!!

I really like this idea, it would be a nice incentive for people to work on their Trainerlevel, but not something that gives crazy game advantages over lower levels either.

I also support this. It can take so long to get trainer levels up, and the egg storage is so expensive. Increase activity perhaps by making getting trainer levels up more rewarding. Have it hard coded in so like said, every 10 levels or so, get a free egg storage slot. You can still buy them. But get rewarded for being active and upping trainer levels.

I would love this to be implemented. I very rarely breed anymore except for event pokemon. Heavens forbid I start shiny hunting right now, I'm not ready for it and still only have I think one egg Slot storage open.

Great support! A motivator to level up and a way of balancing out the ridiculously high prices it takes to get 40 or even 100 egg storage places!

Please Yes. I love the idea. We definitely need more ways to get them. And this seems like a very good and balanced option.

Full support!<3
I can only agree with all user who commented before me. It's something really rewarding for just being active and it a good motivation.
I think new users run the risk of adopting the wrong egg more quickly than older ones and can then 'save' themselves well, on the other hand they get a little foretaste of what it's like to be able to collect eggs for the upcoming hunt, what they then tempted to buy more slots themselfs.
While I think the reward effect is greater for small players than for older ones, it still feels very balanced. I would also agree that from trainer level X (e.g. 80 or 90) 5 levels are enough to get the next slot, because it takes a lot longer to level up at all.

Bump, added an edit to the post regarding changing the number of levels required at higher levels.

This would be a great addition imo! Egg storages are a big goal for players despite being extremely expensive - to have a 2nd way to achieve them would give users the ability/freedom to earn them in whichever way they deem suits them best.

Additionally newer players will be able to get one or two of them pretty quickly which may help in the event someone Adopts an egg that would break their chain, they don't have to worry about having the money immediately for a first or even second oopsie, wrong egg grab situation

To add on, i was imagining a gentler curve (so 10 levels to 7 levels to 5 levels?) something like:

eggstorage levels : points needed from previous milestone
10: 891
20: 6690
30: 18490
40: 36290
50: 60090
60: 89890
69: 111339 (70 is 125690 from 60)
78: 126748
85: 138480
92: 163317
97: 133035 (woops, steep drop)
102: 147535

realistically, many of of the users who especially want this have been here for over half a decade; time is a kind of difficulty in and of itself.

some uses for egg storages for anyone still on the fence:
- If you have too many eggs to adopt, you can keep some in storage
- Hoarding eggs for fountain shiny/mega able boost day. You can even wait for them to gain EHP then store them so they'll hatch faster on the day itself
- Hoarding event eggs while you hunt the regular form (this is me, my storages are currently filled with Kitema)
- If you're stuck in a slow hunt, for the advent task that needs you to hatch 3 eggs, you can hoard concentration eggs from some other days to hatch on that day

Greatly support. Egg storage is way too expensive. - hopefully it's retroactive.

Absolutely support this, especially the graduated curve. As someone fairly low-level, I don't have too much to look forward to trainer point wise. While higher level obviously matters, there are no tangible rewards. This is a great built in reward for experienced and dedicated users :)

I think that if lv50, lv80 and lv100 gave an additional bonus slot or two, that would be nice
i think lv50 is a pretty general half-way milestone, as it's half-way to triple digits
lv80, or whenever they start going to every 5 levels, is another noteworthy milestone imo
and then lv100 is the big triple digits, and definitely something that a little bonus isn't hurting anyone
the middle one could be removed as well, as i think at least every 50 levels giving more of a bonus is neat, but i think there is a huge drop-off point in earning levels around there specifically, so one right before the longhaul is something that would be appreciated, in my opinion

Full support.
Currently i have only about 4 egg storages and it's much costly. But with this system (if it gets implemented, that is) I would be eligible for 3 more and going on to my 4th storage.

Question (doesn't change how I view this) but I was wondering if this is a whole storage with one egg space and like 100 or 99 other slots for reg pokemon or if it you get another box at level 10 with the capacity for 1 egg or pokemon and add another space at each interval? Idk if this is a stupid question but I'm just curious if it would be the same egg storage you can get from the storage box man or if it is something different....
Hi, nice to meet you!
Just so you know, I'm 5 hours behind game time.
I'm aiming for all the plushies so missing ones will be much appreciated. This part is mainly aimed at the plushie exchange contest!
Also, I don't have a battle team so, plz, no battle requests!
I'm aiming for ditto so any normal gem offers or letting me borrow your ditto once I have enough gems would be very appreciated! I'm always buying them!

full support, new trainers have so many places to spend money on so egg storages are like dreams to them, adding this feature will atleast encourage to increase their trainerlevel,
and high level trainers get a lot of benefits from this
Im actually depending on this suggestion for egg storages
