    Upgraded Thatched Farmhouses are USELESS

    Dear Trion,

    Please contact XLGames on our complete dissatisfaction with the upgraded Thatched Farmhouses, because they are, quite honestly, absolutely (and horrendously) useless.

    Here are the most crucial issues:

    1) Upgraded Thatched for Gathering/Farming verdict: Useless. You give up land footprint around the original Thatched farmhouse for its upgraded counterpart, and in exchange, you obtain 3 beds of dirt that allow you to plant 50 seeds (each). There is no proc'ing on those beds of dirt, and there is no by-product from them (meaning, if you plant a grain that would normally yield hay, it no longer yields hay - or worm - for that matter).

    2) Upgraded Thatched for Mining verdict: Useless. You give up land, and in exchange you obtain 2 beds of dirt and a mining drill that gives you roughly 15-30 stone per hour. If you spent 10 hours (patiently clicking at every hour), you'll end up spending over 1k labor and have roughly 300 stones. I don't know about you, but my idea of fun is NOT having to click a god damn button every hour for a reward.

    3) Upgraded Thatched for Husbandry verdict: UDDERLY useless (Haha - get it? Husbandry? Udder? hardy har). Seriously though, this one is painful. 9 hours cool down after putting 5 cows in the pen, and 35 milk as reward. Best caveat? No fertilizer.

    I'm not one to complain without suggesting alternatives that are reasonable though.

    SOLUTIONS TO THE ABOVE:

    1) Thatched for Gathering/Farming: Please include the by-product? If you sow rice, you receive rice, worm bait, and hay. Otherwise, what the hell is the point?

    2) Thatched for Mining: Please, PLEASE make it so our fellow miners don't have to diligently babysit their farmer toons by clicking on them every hour. One harvest - 12 hour cooldown, 60-70 stones, 60-80 iron, (15-20 ore for rarer minerals and 3-5 gems in procs) in exchange for 500 labor per harvest. Not a negligible harvest in its reward, and not enough mats to throw the market off its track. The labor is reasonable (based on 120 points recovery per hour). This would allow for farming WHILE having mining as an actual plus.

    3) Thatched for Husbandry: Okay, work with me here. One dairy pen takes 3 cows, yields over 40 milk and nearly 10 fertilizer every 6 hours.

    I can't, for the life of me understand why the Thatched with 5 cows in it yields less than 40 milk, no fertilizer, and over 9 hours of cool down.

    Solution: 50 milk - 15 fertilizer - 6 hour cooldown. Want to make the cooldown 9 hours instead? Fine.

    65 milk - 20 fertilizer - 9 hour cooldown.

    Please pass this along to XLgames. Right now, every person in this game knows that upgrading a thatched is NOT worth it. Thanks.

    You pay for convenience.

    But yeh... pretty much sucks all around. Trade-off too high, especially for what you pay

    Sounds like pay to have your farming skillz removed.

    Thanks for info, I will not be upgrading farmhouse at this time.

    Your solutions to the three thatched upgrades is wonderful. Trion should definitely pass this up to XL, maybe they will consider something.

    This whole patch/mini expansion sucks.. they screwed up their own anniversary event, screwed people out of 3 days of play time, took peoples land away, the house upgrade cost WAY to much to upgrade, the upgraded houses are more hassle then they are worth. Nothing really good came out of this patch thing but a ♥♥♥♥ ton of headaches, anger, frustration, and last but not least the loss of many many paying customers. It was stupid and a waste of everyone's time

    You're forgetting the introduction of a lot more bugs! Graphical and otherwise.

    100% agree, for the huge costs of upgrading they are totally underwhelming. Wish I didn't.

    Aaaaand this post immediately committed a salty suicide lol. XL definitely has their own opinion on how the game should change from RU/KR, but feedback can still be constructive, guys. >_>
