Sorry for the huge read, it just took that much to get my point across. Maybe everyone else disagrees, but this is my 2 cents, and I'd be interested to hear yours.It seems like several veteran players, some who I know better than others, have decided to move to another server. Personally, I recently took a month break from minecraft, and thought I would share a few views / lessons. I'm not really sure what use this will have, since the players that have made the choice to leave won't be persuaded by some post of mine for sure, but maybe it will give some insight to new players and promote a different way of thinking.I agree the game has shifted to be more about the rupees. Daily people ask how many rupees people have, and people build on their lots strictly for what kind of money they will generate. There’s some interesting economical fluxes going on, with new players scraping by, many hovering around 50k rupees and dozens of players with 200k or more consistently.A friend of mine and my month long break brought me to this realization, and what I’d guess is the jist of this post. Why worry about rupees? The wonderful part of minecraft is that you can walk into the wild and literally get any of the resources you need. Why be so concerned about buying what you can mine?I feel like before I was constantly worried about my rupees balance. Many players that’s all they talk about. Why does it matter? Minecraft is a game, and it should be about building and having fun. I’ve spent so much of my time renting hotel rooms and restocking shops, and it took the break and my friends comment to make me realize what a waste it is. It felt like work, not fun, getting the materials for the shop, or advertising / setting up rooms in the hotel, just so my rupees balance would go up that notch. Krysyyjane9191 will tell you now that I won’t come near her shop, I don’t have one of my own, and she stands a better chance of getting good help from the cat than me regarding it.And I think this is where the “top / veteran” players get burned out. Most of your time online is spent worrying about restocking or managing your rupees balance. Finally, the balance gets high enough that rupees don’t really matter to you, and then you lose interest. It happened to me.On top of that, much of the enjoyment of minecraft comes from the work you put into building. Creative mode isn’t as exciting to me (and many other players) because it doesn’t require as much effort to build. Once you’ve hit that upper echelon, the game shifts to creative mode. I put 100 diamond blocks into the floor of my third res, and at 50r per diamond, that’s 45000r. For a majority of the players 45000r is a huge sum, but for many veterans it’s a drop in the barrel.So I guess in sum, my hope is that maybe I could inspire players to start building what they would build if they were in single player, and don’t let the rupees balance get in the way of having fun.
