what a really big turn off for me is the coin system. the way to generate “raw coin” is by completing feasts i dont even pay attention to (random pop ups) or generate traffic in your town. the income feels wrong to me.
for me as a player i dont want to be rewarded by random pop ups for breaking 100 blocks or crafting 10 axes( it feels like:“oh ok, i take that”).it doesn´t feel rewarding. i want to find/generate coin myself. i want to mine the coin, sell items or kill mobs.
to make the quest system more attractive i would make it more active for the player to have a better overview what is happening. for example crafting a new item like the dashboard where players can interact with it and choose what quest they want to track. maybe also introducing group quests. (like clearing 20 meteoroids) this way it becomes ACTIVE quests.
I dont know where the game is heading. there are no long term goals from the devs that i could find. Boundless has a little bit of everything (fighting, trading, crafting…) but nothing i can dedicate my time to, to become the ultimate fighter,trader,crafter etc… because everyone can become on the same level in 1-2 weeks.
there could be more variety for each section to make it a CHALLENGE to achieve so each player has an IDENTITY like" x player crafts the best hammers", " y player can tank mobs for ages" , " z player is the coinmaker"
right now i play the game for 2 weeks and i feel like i´ve done and seen everything.
What i really like is the building. It generates more prestige the higher tier your blocks are. you have a prestige ranking between towns and players inside towns. it makes me want continue to contribute to the town. the town with the most prestige is declared as the capital of the planet and becomes globaly visable.
At the moment it feels like they just finished the foundation of each part and din´t add enough content to each of it yet.
maybe Boundless is designed to be super casual and focused around social building.
i wish the devs would make some sort of devtalk or trailer of what are the long term goals are.
