So here it goes.
I have played this since the beginning as a lot of you have. When The official launch happened I played like crazy because it seemed to have mostly come of age and was quite frankly a lot of fun. It was a totaly new game from in the beginning. I looked forward to new content and my daily chore grinds and all the things that are expected from a survival game. Then real life reared its ugly head and I had to step away for awhile. I came back to having what I had on at the time and many many many hours of playing gone.
My first thought was to cuss out the game but then I began to really think about it and it turned into a play ability excercise to make up for the lack of content because I got to/had to rebuild everything. Not so bad, but then the first DLC came out and it occured to me that this game is a lot like ordering a jaguar from the dealer who then delivers you a KIA. You can still get around in the KIA, it does what cars are advertised to do and hell you can even find ways to have fun with it but just when you settle in and accept the fact, the dealer sends you new wheels for the jaguar that you ordered and says buy these because it will make your KIA much better!!
With that I will equate the new thrall system, pet system, fishing system, and dlc’s to forcing those jaguar wheels onto your new KIA, it doesn’t work and it makes your KIA basically non drive able.
With all that being said I have found ways to have fun. I don’t build bases anymore, I build what I need and then traverse the map Conan style eating,slaying and whatever else…there are always new supplies on my victims. So now this game that had such promise has been relegated to my steam library’s basement where i only go when I’m bored. The point of all of this is, As much as I hate what is going on with this game its not fair to berate the Dev’s and make threats about how you will or will not punish them, instead just post bugs you may find if you are so inclined and move along with whatever and however you manage your game time and understand that the dealer is never going to take the KIA back but at some point they will try to sell you a new motor…Its up to you at that point if you buy it or not on the hope that the jaguar motor will make your KIA go faster…
