Yeah, I agree that it's not "exciting" at the moment and I also agree with Ched, as that's basically what I've been doing. The downtime has been great to get some merits I didn't have yet, finally train my stats to a less embarassing figure for my level and take a step back as the bugs are being fixed, instead of getting too annoyed.
I am however looking forward to the more exciting aspects of Torn coming back, especially in regards to attacking, but the mention of a new crime system sounds intriguing too.
So yeah, I'm using the time to train and get myself prepped for the further changes to Torn. And also have more time for things outside of Torn which is important too and my energy goes to those kind of things.
