Ok we all know what happened and I dont believe it needs anymore attention than it has already received. I just want to say this raises the issue of where we go from now. We are all worried about the economy but that is only a small part of this game. In my time I've seen some amazing builds and love the aspect of mining and crafting. A lot of effort time and commitment has been put in by this development team to create such a wonderful experience for us all, and also shows that they are actively protecting us. I love the fact that the crafting side of things is soo realistic as far as what materials are used for what items.
I get upset when I see players soo desperately want the rarest items that are soo far out of their budget for whatever reason. I know I say it a lot but its important, I had a massive collection room early in the game with no cubit purchases I crafted materials builders wanted and found when I wanted and needed an item such as chests or decorative items I created lots and sold the ones I didn't need. This also went for the materials that I didn't use but had overload of. I used to spend a few days mining as its fun and a sense of accomplishment basically getting it all not only for free but get cubits and xp from doing so. I consider myself somewhat observant and question the players who never level up that spend their entire game time asking for items and don't think they realise that with some hard work and dedication they can achieve soo much more than the items they were asking for without the rejection that goes with asking.
This all being said yes I buy cubits and I feel it is more to support the app and ensure it continues and doesn't die like soo many games have in the past, and yes I like to give away items but find it increasingly hard finding the players that truly deserve it and not taking advantage of my good nature as it can generally be the reason I go offline and lock my realms. This effects my game play as I don't get to mine build and craft and also limits me from doing giveaways and events.
I'm was recently working on making a maze and trying to work out a way I can incorporate that into an event to reward players and give them something fun in game to do. Unfortunately this is now on hold as recently while i was overloaded with players with a variety of problems and issues they wanted my help with, I had a friend come and ask if I wanted to be part of a video and to escape the crowd of begging and requests I said yes and unfortunately couldn't see my screen and assume i threw the items just off my donation/sorting table ultimately loosing thousands of deco clan stones which i spent the next day frantically searching for with no luck. I will recover from this in time but that build is officially on hold.
Now I have decided that I will be building a room where I am going to make some low budget costume ideas that players may hopefully find one that suits their style or mood whatever they choose to dress by. The plan is to show people that even though the items may be "cheap" they still look cool and stylish as there is lots and lots of hats accessories and clothing that aren't the normal. Trust me if we all walked around in a krampus mask we would probably scare half the kids playing lol and it wouldn't be individual. Please be proud of who you are an the position in the game you currently are at, no one came into this game as a pro they all worked at somewhat to get to where they are. As you progress through you will remember the outfits you once wore and it will show your progression and give you a sense of accomplishment.
I'm sorry for the long post but I feel it needs to be said now more than ever. Thank you for taking the time to read and hope this clears up any questions anyone has about my recent thoughts of leaving the game on the discord channels. We’re qbees you may be able to kill us but we respawn.
