What turns me off playing Boundless now? Nearing on 800 hrs in game. Honestly? Just the lack of players really. Plenty of red squares on the radar compass, but never really seem to run into too many people along my routes. Hardly anyone outside of towns.
Other than that, everything else that is possibly and subjectively negatively affecting the game, truly doesn’t bother me.
Death penalty? Oh well, I died. It happens. Id take the xp grind, over being ■■■■■ deep in vulpto whacking away looking for rubies and accidentally sliding into the lava and losing up to 75% of my gear durability. (Yeah, that’s when I started building bridges to rubies instead. haha sigh)
Footfall? I really don’t care about this one either. I look at it as coin that just magically appears. Cool. Free coin! Not much footfall coming in, and short of change for that awesome aoe hammer from Crete or skylight forging? I go hunt and sell them my trophies. They gets 20k of mine, and I get a few thousand of theirs. Successfully dropping the price of the hammer since I worked for it.
Working to obtain something you want, opposed to need, feels more satisfying to me. Feels worth it. Feels like I need to go buy some persisting pies with the money I made off crete or from skylight forging. thanks! You guys rock!
The devs are up late working their butts off for their baby, and for us. Even on weekends they’ll pop up on here or in game. So what’s a little ingame work for us while things get smoothed out, if they’re the ones truly working here?
Thank you @james and everyone else over there! I truly appreciate your perserverance and passion for this game!
There are other ways of looking at a problem like I explained about footfall. Don’t focus on a problem we don’t have complete control over, but instead, figure out a way to alleviate that in game untill it’s taken care of.
There’s a saying I heard a while ago that I sat and pondered for a while that I feel holds true to allot of these posts:
(my honest sincere apologies if this possibly offends anyone. Let me know if it does, and I’ll delete it off here. No questions asked.)
Here’s the saying:
"A lightbulb goes out, people fix it and get a new one. Lightbulb goes out for a Catholic, he stands in the dark and says, “what did I do wrong”?
Which one are you?
Edited to add: @james and to thank everyone there! Hopefully this will put a smile on one of their faces. Instead of being tagged mostly for negative feedback.
