Remember when you first read about this game?
Remember when it said this was going to be the Prelude time, where things would change according to feedback from players and what could be done with the technology?
Remember where they said that nothing is in it's final state, and that as the game developed we would be a big part of what the game finally was?
Remember any of that???
If not that's partly the problem. Expectations are out of whack.
What we need is the patience to wait.
Wait till the very small team at NG is able to finish the work they are doing.
Wait till the recipe tweaks can be done... ( done right )
Wait till the loot tables are put where they need to be.
Wait till the game is in a state where lots of folks will be entertained better.
We have all developed an inflated sense of entitlement. NOBODY made any player here buy this game. It was a choice made by US. So if there is anyone to be upset with if we don't like something here... it is US. Yes, ME included.
And I know a few will retort, "It's on the feature page!! They lied to us!!!"
No they didn't ... not they didn't. NO, they didn't.
These were not promises, just features they were shooting for.
So let us ALL take a deep breath, remember it's a game and have fun with what you CAN do and have patience to wait for the cool things you will be able to do next.
