Link please. I remember at one point, I was like, "OMG Nerf the whole Foundry!" and most authors were like "Whoa that's crazy." BranFlakes even immediately locked my thread. I then kind of calmed down and changed my mind.
I have never, that I recall, singled out FMs as the source of the problem.
"Remove all rewards from Foundry missions, at least until a better means of sifting through the missions is found. I consider this to be a fairly draconian solution to the problem, but may lead to less hatred after the initial storm blows over. "
"There is serious wisdom in this as a short term solution."
And you may find this familiar from the second page
"Both systems of rewards worked against the story-tellers, while working for players who needed stuffz in the least amount of time for the most amount of stuffz.
If there is no alternative to that trap, then I say remove the trap."
Point taken Izdubar, I can't speak on that since I actively returned to playing only 12 days ago, but I get the gist. I also want to take a moment to thank you because your boff ground missions certainly helped me get accolades that when I previously played I had a lot of trouble getting.
I greatly appreciate that, and hope you'll accept my gratitude. I had my captain in there pew pewing with my Boffs, it was awesome mowing down those Jemmies.
