You go to your favorite sandwich shop for months, years whatever. You eat Pringles, Doritos, or whatever your favorite snack is for weeks on end. Then you say, I'm done with that for a bit.
Do you feel the same about this game from time to time? I sure do. I look at the forums and i see the same thread for weeks on end, they haven't left the first page. I am pondered by this. The game is good, that's why we come back everyday.
I don't know, I'm just rambling on now. You get my point.
Sometimes I lose interest in the game but always end up back here somehow. The competitions and updates are good for bringing players back but with the lack of good ones for a few months now, the game is definitely becoming more of a routine but still I continue to play.
Torn feels very routine and monotonous to me right now. I still like the game, I just haven't been warring or doing really anything interesting in months. Nothing but training and crimes and flower running. It feels stale. I'm ready for something besides flower running to be the thing to do for good cash.
When they remove on of the most fun part of the game like warring because of something stupid like a "respect cap" which nobody even knew existed. Add more faction specials to spend respect on already you lazy developers.
I routinely get bored of specific parts of the game, but have yet to get bored in general. If I wasn't running a faction and actively trading on the item market i could see how it would get boring just logging in to train/crime every few hours. I also find that setting long term goals for myself is an important aspect of why i log in every day.
The game does get boring. Then it gets fun for a bit. Then it gets boring again.
It's not really a game of skill like an xbox game for example so it is more difficult to keep your full attention. Every so often it gets interesting but a lot of the time it's just the same old boring crap you do on the game everyday.
Comparing to the old days updates are more frequent which I like a lot of it....but I hate the idea of changing certain things like new crimes how will it effect my nerve or will my current nerve be worth 15-20 and OCs. my battle stats with attacking busting drug use, will our stats be less valuable in attacks or busting?
I feel fear and excitement but I'm scare 2.0 maybe to much in such a short time.
I'm sure we will be taken care of I shouldn't worry
