YESSSSS!!!! FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS NOT COMPLETELY IDIOTIC, YESSS!!! START SOMEWHERE!!!!Laurel wrote:I vote for stat-cap at the level of 400 (for each stat) - I wonder why none of you would be satisfied
There are different people who want different kinds of stat caps, but there is NO intelligent reason that anyone has ever presented for not setting a stat cap that no one has reached yet. OBVIOUSLY, the ideal would be to set it to where the biggest player is to minimize the current damage, but with the improbably of the whole of Genesis de-petrifying their unimpressive configuration of neural pathways, I'm happy with any progress whatsoever.
This is not an economy. Economics is used to create incentives for work that people would not normally do out of pure pleasure. Genesis should be out of pure pleasure!!! It's supposed to be FUN NOT WORK. The for-profit model of many big MMOs are about using effective reward systems to get people addicted and then economic principles to keep them competing endlessly. They do it for money, governments do it for control, you're trying to do it to feed your own addiction. Genesis should be appealing as a release from such things, as it already is when such elements are removed, not an addiction that creates more of the same.Tarax wrote:No cap. Diminishing returns.
Here's another hint... working at a job for a couple decades to watch a number go up in your bank account merely to have a house, car, job title, and spouse that enjoys finding ways to make that number go down is NOT fun and will NOT make you happy. Anyone who thinks that is imagining a future happiness that they are working toward but once they get there, look around, and see they are not happy and have what is often called a midlife crisis. It's not too different with Genesis, but some of you are pushing to keep things the way they are because you've worked to achieve upper- or middle-management and don't want to admit to yourself that you wasted a bunch of time working for something that wasn't necessary for the reward. Some of us, like myself, see and try to enjoy the reward to be had now, but are still being compelled to compete, don't enjoy that aspect of it, and want it to go away so we can show and share the joy that Genesis can bring. At the moment, I do not recommend this as a new game to ANYONE. If it were actually still a good game, we would still have many players. Stop deluding yourselves into thinking there is anything to blame but the quality of the game itself. And then realize the quality could be improved drastically just by removing a few stupid incentives. Tada.
