Unpopular opinion: new world gathering system is far superior to AOC

Now having played AOC and new world, one thing stands out, exploring the world is far more engaging in new world then ashes. Primarily because of their approach to gathering, let me explain.

In new world everything is harvestable from the biggest tree to the smallest shrub. If bored there is always something for the player to do.

Oposed to ashes where gatherables are all spread out. meaning there are large stretches of time with little to do, making traversing the world far less engaging.

But won't making everything gatherable diminish the reward the player feels when harvesting?

No, new world dots Rare gatherables and animals around the map to still give the player that jackpot feeling. The common resources feel less rewarding but are great at plugging gaps in game play.

This may be controversial but I think ashes should have a look at how new world has done gathering and take some notes.

I wouldn’t say this thread is controversial. Much of what you see in Alpha One is bare implementation. We will refine, flesh out and polish in time for A2 and Betas ❤️💪

AOC's End User License Agreement is actually great

Seriously, who came up with this:

>Neither we nor our licensors or distributors shall be liable for any disruptions, delays or other omissions in any connection, data exchange or other interaction that you may experience when you use the platform or game, regardless of cause (I.E., any system failure, server access loss, or data breach resulting from any cause, including, without limitation, acts of god, nature or other causes (by way of example, but by no means a limitation of the foregoing, events such as war, embargo, disturbance in the force, hostile domination by unknown sentient or borg life forms, or any bacteria, virus, or other unknown infection or pathogen that results in any communicable disease that causes life termination and the subsequent reanimation of bodily function accompanied by limited brain activity, as well as an insatiable urge for human flesh).
>
>Neither we nor our licensors or distributors shall be responsible for the conduct of any users or computers that connect (including those infected by the above referenced disease), exchange data, or otherwise interact with you or your computer as a result of your use of the games.

Thank you Intrepid. I had a nice laugh while procrastinating from my homework.
