MarpTarpton wrote:You have no idea the hassle, the art investment, the hours animating, the coding and its hourly worth that went into the entire livestock industry. But I do. And if you aren't willing to even make one solid attempt to liberate the animals from Darwoth's grasp, to topple him as the unfair overlord he's being in covetously spooning insufficient dollops of livestock as he feels like it, then you don't deserve them.
Besides the fact that we don't even know which town he has the animals at. Besides the fact that he probably has them at his main town and like Heff said it would take 20 people a week to break in there. Besides the fact that Juda's right and we'd have to torch the barn to get into it and thus kill all the animals. What's stopping Darwoth from just moving the animals or for that matter having a second pair of animals at a different town of his. Because you guys have maintained the idiotic unbalanced tax system which has fed him literally hundreds of thousands of silver so he has the ability to just maintain multiple huge towns with no effort besides having a huge town.
So if we guess right and raid the right town, and spend a full week with 20 people raiding it, losing plenty of our characters and he could just endlessly stockade us with the hundreds of thousands of silver you've fed him through the tax system, if we burn the locked barn just to kill all the animals AND if he didn't move the animals to another town or simply have a second pair of each at a different town
THEN AND ONLY THEN AFTER WE'VE BURNED HIS BARN, WOULD YOU RELEASE THE ANIMALS IN ANOTHER WAY?
Sounds like a really, really big waste of your time Marp. All these players asking, begging to use your dev'd mechanic and you insult us by saying "GO RAID DARWOTH" just to get animals as if it was that simple.
There is zero way to get the animals from Darwoth. Like Juda said they'd die in a locked barn or he'd just move them to another town. So what are you saying "GO RAID DARWOTH" FOR MARP?
I hope your realize that you spent literally months on that mechanic and art to just let it die in Darwoth's barn, Marp. Nobody's going to raid him and next fall we'll be in the same place. No animals, no dev's and a mechanic that Marp wasted all that time on.
And to think. The mechanic is actually pretty good. The mechanic is fun to play with and all these noobs keep asking me "When are animals coming?", "Are animals going to be sold?". They'd LOVE to play the game with animals but they can't get them. They'd probably play more. Maybe the game would grow. Maybe they'd spend some money in the store. It is so stupid that you don't allow your player base to play something that you literally spent months dev'ing and creating.
Find another way to release them or the mechanic is wasted.
TLDR/ So the answer to my question is "NO", animals will not be released. Thanks for answering Marp.
For those new to the forums and those asking me about this topic in game. I don't want "free" animals. I don't want everyone to have an animal. I want it to be hard, or expensive or difficult to get them. The problem is that it's not those things. It's literally impossible to get live animals by raiding Darwoth.
Why am I mad? I am mad at how the dev's have ***** up this release of animals. I am mad at how they ***** up the ending of Popham. I am mad that it has taken them months to address this. This game has such potential and is/was fun to play but it's amazing how much noob dev's can ***** stuff up in a game like this.
I am mad because if they had done the ending of Popham right and done the release of animals right it would have helped the game grow. They're being stubborn because they know they ***** up and it's hurting the game. The happiest month of my playing Salem was when we had 2000 people playing when Popham opened. The town was alive. Popham was alive. There were tons of new players. I'd love to see 5000 players on Providence. That's my dream, but the dev's keep ***** it up with stuff like this release of animals.
Such a waste of their time and talent.
