This is not how I understood it. It sounded like the Dolyaks still enable (or at least speed up) the building of upgrades. They've just decoupled objective upgrades from the supply resource.

Yeah, but that makes guarding dolyaks much less valuable. You will get the upgrade eventually anyways, so you can just focus on something else instead. In the old system you won't get the upgrade. The benefit from guarding dolyaks is much weaker in the new system.

I'm glad I'm not playing anymore. Why do you even want to defend things that you have invested nothing in to be upgraded? Again, anet is confusing cause and effect.

Maybe I'm weird, but I like to defend towers, keeps, and escort dolyaks. I'm down with what they are trying to do.

I did enjoy this a lot, too. But it was way more fun to build up your defenses in a strategic way. The feeling when you reached T3 after hours upon hours of securing dolyak routes/camps - glorious. But now you don't need dolyaks escorts aren't needed anymore because you get each upgrade for free, it only costs time. You can't really do anything about it that you couldn't do before. They just reduced to possiblities to only defending the keep. meh

Seems like anet is on a road of taking even more decisions off of the player. Nice. I'm questioning when the game will play itself on its own.

Shows how little you actually know about game development politics. The publisher has final say in everything, and claiming it was your idea and defending their stupid decisions is in the developer's contract. They HAVE to say that, regardless if it's true or not. Taking a bullet for EA is in Hudson's job description.

And here I thought Raspberry worked in the game development branch.

Not all the videogame companies are similar but all of them have one thing in common - they need us, the players. They want our money and the easiest way to do that is to conform to what the people want.

Yes and no. I think the easiest way of making money is false advertisement and generated hype. Pretty much used by every major company in the gaming industry (Blizzard, Anet/NCSoft, Ubisoft, EA, Activision). Publishers these days like to spend their money on advertisement around seemingly groundbreaking features, visuals or buying licenses of of known franchises. Then they cut the budget of the project and restrain it by time to rake in more money. In the end, everyone is dissatisfied but the publisher. The problem is: the gamers as a whole aren't mature enough to don't buy games from companies that will disappoint them. They will just go ahead and buy the 55th game of that company on release and cry out loud when it's bad.

As for I post stuff: What you said about boredom is true. But it's a completely different topic; a problem that coexists with the one above.
