It's all so tiresome

The only thing the game needs is a raid update and quality of life changes. I don’t mind loosing a base due to a raid, don’t get me wrong, it sucks but so much of the fun for me is the pain of loosing my ****. Once I built my brick walls with braziers and torch’s I had nothing to fear but my own boredom. My base became a unraidable fortress of agonizing horribly dull chores. Log on harvest my Cotten, sell my cotton which took forever to harvest, to pay for a bell, then feed and slaughter a bunch of animals who’s food quality was **** compared to Bageals and fruits. Made an army of raid and pvp alts, only
To slam my head against a wall till I either died of boredom or killed in the stocks.

Salem could learn something from HnH and it’s not the wipe aspect. HnH has vastly better quality of life mechanics, like making piles of anything and moving it with a wheelbarrow. Or making more than one wall segment at a time. Just to name a few.

I mostly agree with TheDuke86 here, for a lot of competitive orientated players there literally is no incentive to play after reaching a a certain point and that point could be achieved within a few months of casually playing.

You usually do something with an end-goal on mind, in the current state there is no PvP, no raiding and no massive town communities and interaction. It provides you with mostly meaningless base building and character progression which in itself has little value. After reaching a few hundred biles, you do not need blood/yellowbile/phlegm anymore on main characters. Same goes for your hunter alts, you basically only need YB/Blood. As for your skills, besides a few skills which are OP such as L&L and H&S, you do not need much higher skills. Some things can improve your effectiveness a little, investing tons of resources and time into appropriated sets and such but in the end it seems awfully meaningless to me due to the curve effectiveness.

It literally is no different from a carebear game such as farmville in the current case, it always used to be a hilarious joke but as for the last few years it has sadly been very true. No-1 in its right mind is seriously putting in the effort and infinite time to change it and with a dying game it is more likely that the upcoming years are significantly worse. Anyhow if you're into a carebear game, there are plenty better games around and there has been for many years.

If I knew how to code I was make my own game with the same core concepts just less carebear loving. To bad they don’t have a Classic Salem server lol

Actually someone who was working on this for quite a while in his spare time.

Sadly I believe that the effort died down due to various reasons.
