@Jiivita I certainly love the house you have and your videos but I am not aware of what other builds you did beyond the one in Pixelgate for your portal. Your videos helped me a lot and I respect your view. But, honestly I have no idea how you could say that you don’t know what the issue is when I have been pretty darn clear in my examples and the need I see. Even more importantly the experience I am having.
It gets pretty frustrating when you try to explain something but I keep getting responses that people don’t understand. It’s like they don’t take much time to actually put themselves in your situation especially when they have spent more money for plot bonuses or been here for grandfathered plots or were already 50 (or close) and earning 20, 30, 40 plots a level.
Let’s me be clear in another way… A basic users starting around the time I did that did not pay for plot bonuses – @reapa11 was level 42 before patch and had about 480 plots.
Before the patch I was 28 and had about 130-60ish. I am now level 40 and have 254 plots (230 in use). In the recent patch I went from level 28 to 38 and received the plots you get from that. I have a 47 plot build in Therka for moebius’ plaza. Across the other planets I have a couple small shops, a few plot reservations to help people, and a few plots to help run a community portal hub. In Berlyn the community I am building has 131 plots – a couple for a workshop/house, and tons allocated to the rest roads, courtyard, preserving trees and landscape, etc.
Eden is not big so I have no idea how people keep thinking it is a big build and something I shouldn’t be able to support or do in this game? That I am not allowed to found my own community just because PixelGate, Therka, and other cities are ghost towns. Or that landscape isn’t an issue and just let it get destroyed by people cause you don’t need a nice area around your house/town…
I have no idea how anyone who actually comes and sees what I am trying to do be against fixing the ratio I get for leveling. Because when I talk about the other core builders that are trying to bring simple beauty and nice experinces to the game and started somewhat recently, they completely agree that 100 plots or 320 at 50 isn’t right. It doesn’t matter what you get forever… it is what you have now when you spend the first couple hundred hours on the game.
So either I stop helping the community, give up trying to protect some of the landscape in Eden, remove a Therka build for the community or continue to try to get you all and developers to remember that there were those of us that started this game recently and the plot count we get and now continue to get is low and now what you experienced. We had no benefit of 20 plot bonuses that are grandfathered in, etc.
I get people feel differently and I do respect their views but I don’t see many of them starting a character from scratch and trying to play in the same game experience as I am having. I guess I just shouldn’t have said anything because even if something is done I will never get all those free 20,30,40 plots you all got… and who knows if I even want to play the game at 1.0 after some of the experiences and lack of understanding the “builder” concerns by the community.
