Holy Gold!

   Posted by: Mag_Trillini   in Mags Mansion

What a great way to come back after 2 weeks of holidays. And my bank turns into nearly 10b gold! Many new changes like Bank Taxing, which obviously, SUCKS! I mean, with the amount of gold I have, I would be losing 200m gold each DAY! I mean, that is RIDICULOUS!

This would be a great time to have a Fair, don’t you guys think so? *wink*

Anyway, I have this tonne of gold which is just lying in my bank, waiting to be spent. Question is, on what? The markets have skyrocketed so I don’t think I’ll be visiting that for a while. And damn, potions get more and more expensive each time. All I can see is that I will try and protect my gold from bank taxes and thieves until a Fair comes. Hopefully, that will be soon!

SO many new updates. I had to read 1000 + posts this morning! Guess that’s my punishment for being away so long. Oh well. Just a few things I want to say about the new updates.

First of all, I absolutely LOATHE the new lumbermill update. It’s terrible. Not lumberming for a week and POOF! Months of blood and sweat and hours put into lumbering, lost … FOREVER. Now that downright SUCKS. That feature should be removed, ASAP.

Now, about the potion shop prices. Come on, just LEAVE them ALONE! Although you say (you know who you are) that it is EASY to earn gold. It actually isn’t, for MOST. Although gold can be earnt easily, perhaps not TONNES of gold. I mean, it may be easy to earn 100k gold in less than a day, but not 100m gold. And to think you get TAXED for having just over 10m gold! Seriously, if you want to get rid of gold, give us a fair! Or create something HELPFUL that we would ALL want to spend on. Remember when ores were big? Perhaps a PCC. Or maybe, special AUCTIONS with special equipment!

In my opinion, the taxes will just ruin the game, especially for the non-spenders. These updates are just creating a bigger gap between those who spend and those who don’t. Aren’t we trying to create a more equal society instead of a more divided one? I can live with a tax, but perhaps a once a month one, not once a day! I mean, in reality, you get taxed, say once a fortnight, but once a day is just RIDICULOUS.

And last of all, the clan vault tax. Why limit it to 1b gold? That is MUCH too small considering the fact that people like to donate to HELP the clan grow which benefits everyone. And not every clan has the time or resources to earn medals to rent cities, let alone, increase their clan vault storage space. So how about make it 3b limit instead of 1b? That would sound more reasonable.

In all honesty, I don’t see any positive things with these updates. There should not have been a way to get UBER FAST endless amounts of gold in the first place. On that day with that update, a passageway to ENDLESS AMOUNTS OF GOLD lay for those with high strength and luck and time on their hands. Thus, causing an imbalance in the economy. But, I do not blame those who took this to their advantage. I would say, it’s the fault of the person who created this said update. I am just stating fact.

All I want, is a better game, like the rest of you. But I do not believe that these updates are the way to go. Many others have put suggestions out there that are better alternatives to reap gold out of the game. My idea is to, if you have not picked up my hints yet, ARRANGE A FAIR! Lots of potions, stews, little goodie bags, the whole lot! Whenever it’s time for fair, those 7 days are fun and joy! Just be careful of those pesky thieves! :P When I experienced my first fair, I was not wealthy, but I had fun, nonetheless! Seeing the markets crash and so many players with gold on hand was great fun. I think DW is overdue for a funtime of thieving, stat boosting and gold losing and of course, lots of other things!

Of course, that’s just one idea. Many others have put out their ideas and opinions on this matter. And I think their idea’s are worthwhile, just take a peek at Game Discussion and you will see what I am talking about. :)

Well, I think that’s enough typing for today. Glad to be back from my long vacation. Good to be back!

Excellent post Mags, let’s hope Tom takes note of your idea for a Fair. That would indeed get rid of a lot of gold.
The Lumbermill idea is tragic also, get rid! Or make it a month or so at least.

Thanks for an interesting read.

So for all your complaining about the bank tax have you actually been taxed yet? All I can say is close down the current loophole and let’s tax gold in hand as well…
