I think this is a beautiful game, the intent behind what it is ment to be is very unique. To have people playing together and try to mimic real life by having every new player that joins become a kid to another in an endless cycle of rebirth and death.
That was the idea behind this originally and I like to think that the many months dueldecade has spent developing this game on mobile had really made it their own game in their own right.
However ever since the mess with Jason I couldn’t help but notice that people have been forcibly tieing this into his work OHOL at every chance they get. I think this has ultimately been reducing the number of players that play YAH and has split both fan bases apart so much so that no one has any idea how to communicate with one another anymore without blasting our opinions at one another.
I have my own opinion on this, I think Jason was in the wrong. That is all I’m going to say however. It was all a huge mess, I think everyone can agree with that.
Both games are now unique enough in their own ways that I think they can no longer be designated as one just being better than the other.
I believe that there is an inherent issue across both games that may never be able to be worked out.
There is never any true reward. You may build up any area that you wish to but ultimately if that servers gone, if that areas erased, if people steal vital resources or actively attempt to waste others time. It will all amount to next to nothing but a bunch of wasted time. All I can really say I’ve gained throughout my few years of playing. Is that I memorized a majority of the basic recipes and how to set up everything efficiently.
To find a good area to settle in and get as quickly to a horse cart as possible and set up a large maple tree farm while designating an areas for farming, a cow pen and a sheeps pen.
I think the biggest draw for solo play is that everything you make is ultimately your own. Everyone wants to own something that they worked for. Otherwise it just becomes work. That’s not fun.
What I think both games lack is some currency, $$$ mullah dinero cash money. I want something to invest into other than investing my time. I want to be able to do ridiculous stuff. Unlock a trait that let’s me shoot 3 arrows at once with a bow and instant kill a bear. Spend some soul coins to even give me a mild advantage over others. SOMETHING! I walk twice as fast! Horses I ride move twice as fast! Where the heck are guns? Give me an old revolver and I’ll put 6 bullets into a griefer. Give me a noose and a jail cell so I can pretend to be a sheriff and lock up a criminal and when they’re time has come I put them up in the town’s square. Give me a reason to interact with others, a skill they have that I cant get. I want a reason to be dependent on others in this game. So I dont have to be alone, so I can know who I’m playing with, so I can actually make friends. I want a base town to live in that no one can destroy and I can always rely on to give me the basic necessitys.
Maybe I went a little too far as to suggest scrapping the game and starting over, I would miss this if it was gone honestly.
And with that I do have to say, this is another goodbye to this game for now. I hope you all do well!
