this is the kind of shit that is hit or miss with me on MMOs. like if they aren't going to be respectful of your time then its not really interesting to play
like hand gathering 2 pieces of some item in Guild Wars 2 by finding the node over and over in a large map vs just like planting the crop you want in a garden plot and waiting an hour to get a fat stack of it based on plant conditions and irrigation..
@geesehoward yeah like the thing that keeps me in BDO is the fact that it can be as much or as little of an idle game as i want.
and every time i do some dry dick infrastructure or alchemy research i discover a new cool fact about the game world, like what truffle mushrooms are used for and why they're so rare and expensive
@geesehoward also every mmo has alchemy. but not every mmo obfuscates and organizes information in exactly the right way to let me unironically say "i did alchemy research this weekend"
@galaxgal yeah, just from like playing last night and this morning, i learned a bit of the game world while trying to figure out how to do some game shit and i feel like they handle this aspect really well
@geesehoward yeah like everything about the game world feels weirdly consistent. like i can literally tell people about in-game trade routes because the geography is straight up designed around that aspect
