In the light of players exploiting the progression points system, I would like to:

1. be told what precise steps will be taken in the future to fix exploiting/afk farming progression points and
2. be told how penalties will be employed to put restrictions on having a "jack of all trades" character

Also, I do advocate a wipe with the next patch because this has simply gotten out of hand, and I don't believe there is any other way to fix this, other than to put said restrictions in place, take what players exploited away from them, and let them farm it all over again.

Some evidence:



Especially the second video. I don't believe this is part of the game design and I understand that the build is still an Alpha build, but damn. At least get some basic progression into place. You know shit just got real when you see people producing videos publicly teaching you how to exploit.

Cheers

Thereby penalizing those of us who just worked, and worked and worked for weeks to upgrade our armor and weapons. We pay for doing it honestly because others didn't. Thanks so bleeping much.

You paid for helping the development process, and you surely knew that wipe is possible. No one is penalized, all are under the same conditions.

Please keep in mind this is an alpha stage game that is not yet finished its hard to say how many resets there will be but until late beta testing or release you should expect resets from time to time it is necessary for the development process.

That's part of development, would you rather not have a wipe, and new content come, potentially bricking your account completely because your character(s) progression messes up and bugs out, OR, would you prefer to start over with a cleaner slate, with a lesser chance of a wipe.

@OP:

I fail to see how players should be penalized for "afk farming" their armor just to be a "jack of all trades" considering the sheer amount of time it takes to get all armors up to lvl 10 !!

Just because you wish to specialize, doesn't mean others can't go for all the armor.
I myself am a "completionist" and enjoy maxing out all I can, and I don't care how long it takes, but it's rather selfish of you to wish to impose on others a penalty just because you don't want to be a jack of all trades (once more consider the extra time it takes).

Furthermore, being a "Joat" is another way to avoid having to create a new character and do all the quests all over again and such.


The system is very good as it is, and imo fair.
If you wish to specialize, you'll blaze through the levels of what you are specializing in, all the good for you.
If you wish to develop all the trees and be malleable, be able to equip other stuff, then good too, just know it will take ages.

And considering one pays for this game (Hell, I'm gold avalon) I should be allowed to afk farm if I want, seeing as my afking does not and will not affect you ... you'll actually advance much quicker than me, get better weapons and armor faster, as well as level up faster.

not sure on my level, but have access to a couple types of armour and that is my lot

could not find easy guides on what armor is best for what trades and even what the specialisations are

recall it was hard to find out what all the gun trees did and then someone mentioned that most of the trees have no in game effect

did spot some high level (to me) players standing in a spawn and not being killed by the mobs attacking them

thanks for the video links, spotted "scanning location, please wait", do not recall ever seeing this, so how is it done ?

still on foot as missions / quests all jumbled up

loading pts.....
