Another season of prisons, another half of the the planet quitting because they are bored of doing the same thing every day. Holding down left click mining some emerald gens while watching youtube on a smaller window or second monitor. Sure there’s a koth once in a while but why lose your precious momentum? Outpost? Forget it, not worth the time. Ill make more money from my gens. Because that’s the way to get to the top right? Not pvping, not capturing outposts, just sitting there mining for hours upon hours. Sure it’s nice for a while, you grind all the way up to emeralds to make fat stacks of cash, but then what? Once you have lots of emerald gens you are going to be making the same amount of money for the rest of the season. Meanwhile everyone else who took longer to get to the point you’re at is catching up, and all of the sudden you aren’t so rich, you’re back to being the same as everybody else with nothing you can do about it. There’s nothing to work towards... if you want to hit level 103 go for it but whats the point of having /fly in the warzone if there’s not really a point to hunt people in the warzone anyways... and what’s the point of getting double the money for ores if you can just have one of your gang members sell for you. On factions there is really no limit to making money, keep stacking up spawners and you can get more and more money every day, with prisons once you get enough emmy gens there is no longer a goal. Adding more and more emmy gens isn’t going to make you more money unless you are mining them every day, and since your pick stops getting faster after a certain level it is impossible to mine all your emmy gens at a certain point. On factions there is also a lot more pvp. Why? Because they dont have to sit in their base for the spawners to work they can go out and do dungeons, koth, outposts, whatever they feel like doing because they aren’t losing any money. If there was a way to automate money making on prisons instead of having to constantly mine gens the amount of pvp would skyrocket and the server would be more enjoyable. I used to think that prisons was dying at the end of every season because of lack of late game content but I have come to realize that isn’t the case; because no matter how much content is added one thing remains the same... to get to the top you need money, and you don’t get money by capturing koth, or outposts, or even dungeons if they were added. You get money on prisons by mining gens, and you can only do that for so long before it becomes unbearably boring. As a member of the Nightfall truceship who has seen a lot of my gang quit because they are just bored of the server and am considering completely quitting myself it’s safe to say that something needs to change. Obviously i’m sure there will be a lot of controversy about this and I would love to hear everyone’s opinions.
