If you can't play a game, don't make the designer adapt the game for your inferior level of proficiency. Everyone will hate you for this.
Instead adapt or leave.
It's really sad that the vast majority of gamers of today cannot cope with defeat, and therefore drive the industry into ruin.
Thats a terrible mindset. This mindset is the reason why fonline 2238 eventually shut down: they left instead of whining.
If people leave, the servers are empty, if the servers are empty, no one pays for the server --> server shuts down.
The game has a lot of mechanics that are awesome, and then a lot of mechanics that force you to grind with the risk of being unforgiving at the same time, those are the kind of mechanics that make people leave the server.
One example of such a mechanic:
Someone farms resources for 2-3 hours, which is already tedious as fuck, but he goes along with it because he needs the resources to craft the gear he needs.
Then he creates alloys, high quality alloys, etc etc with those farmed resources, and heads over to the advanced workbench in one of the towns.
He gets killed inside of the town and gets looted. All of his 2-3 hour work is gone. Gathering resources was not fun. Losing all them means you had NO FUN for 2-3 hours.
There are plenty of very, very discouraging mechanics in this game, and having that mindset of "deal with it or leave", will eventually also kill off fonline reloaded.
We should rather focus on making things less tedious and less unforgiving, in order to make the game less tedious to play, and thus more appealing to everyone, which in return will ensure that the server will stay up for a long time.
If you call this mindset "whining", then keep on repeating that "deal with it or leave" until this server shuts down aswell.
Again, a situation that can be easily avoided:
- use Adv. workbench in Gunrunners factory which is relatively safe (unless you get bursted or blown up, which is unlikely considering you need 900 rep to get in)
- if for some reason you have to use the unsafe locations - don't go with all of the resources at once, take some, craft some, then if its safe come again with similar amount, if you die you won't lose that much and will know to come back some other time.
If you're looking for another mindless grinding game look some other way, this one requires some wit and care.
The fact the majority of players disagree with you proves that the game mechanics are the way they should be. Wastelands kick in the nuts from time to time, learn to live with by learning from your mistakes, eventually it becomes a walk in the park.
There's no fun without a challenge.
It doesnt matter whether what you said is possible or not. Fact is i just killed someones cow with 1400 ore and over 2000 minerals, just because i can, and im sure he is pissed off as fuck right now, probably about to ragequit. In order to prevent this he has to play tedious, going back after gathering some resources to unload cow, in order to prevent douches like me from killing a fully packed cow.
This makes it so that he needs to farm 2 hours instead of 1 hour to gain the same amount of resources, since he has to travel all the time.
In order to not be taken advantage of in very basic scenarios, people have to do tedious shit. Awesome gameplay.
Fact of the matter is that the developer of this iteration of fonline already has changed a lot of tedious/grind mechanics, proving my point and completely shitting on your "most players disagree with you" argument.
This time we got a smart dev that is willing to change the game for the better, in order to not run into the same problems fonline 2238 ran into: having no players left.
You can talk all day long and repeat your "everyone disagrees with you" mantra for the 1000th time, fact of the matter is that fonline never had a big community exactly due to the shitty game mechanics that made it so grindy and unfriendly, favoring No Lifers over regular people.
Fonline reloaded will surpass all of those shitty fonline iterations because we finally have a smart dev that realized how shitty some of the mechanics were, and he already went ahead and changed some of them, including the slow cap spawn on merchants (which idiots like you tried to defend on fonline 2238, until it shut down).
The fact that fonline 2238 had to shut down due to lack of players, completely shits on your "everyone disagrees with you" argument.
The majority just left the game, leaving you trash minority to play on an empty server until it closed down. You are just too stupid to realize this.
Fortunately for you the dev is smart and already patched in soo many things that you guys would consider "whine patches", that i dont actually have to listen to you anyways.
