Have you heard about Player points on Roblox? You may have heard about it and even you heard that it can be changed with Robux. Is it true? Well, player points were a non-usable currency on Roblox and it was implemented on Roblox for the first time on April 15th, 2014. This points was intended to display gaming skill. You were able to get points while playing certain games where it was scripted to give you points by winning a round or getting something.
In the past, player points were displayed on the profile of the users and there was a leaderboard page that ranked players and clans by the amount of player or clan points. Roblox applied this player point by developing a system that permits games to gain points to give to players through sales from Developer Products, Paid Access and Game Passes. How did it work? In the player points, there was a tax which is put on the Developer Products, Paid Access and also Game Passes. At that time, the tax was 90% for ex- BC and 30% for BC which means that if you sold a Game Pass for 10 Robux, you would get 7 out of those 10 Robux and the other 3 Robux would go to Roblox. But, with Player Points, those Robux got turned into 3 Player Points that the game creator could use to give to players in-game.
However now, the player points has been removed completely since June 14th, 2018. Even in November 2017, the “All Time” leaderboard section was deleted and it caused some confusing among users. So, now you are not able to use Player Points anymore on Roblox.
