I worry that the LP system change will speed up the game too much (it already takes what, only a month to get to endgame?) but I will give it a chance :D

New LP system doesnt seem very good. Vitality is basically useless. Those that have high vitality nodes/crops will cry.
Also what you do when you have tons of good curios but theyre not studying because of hig hwear used. You just throw used ones to river?

I'm not sure it is, but it seemed worthwhile to try, at least. I'm not thrilled about how the curiosity system works fundamentally, so I don't mind experimenting with it.

When a curiosity finishes one cycle, will it begin another even if i'm logged off?


Yes, quite simply.


Will lessen the tedium but unless there is a lower limit for lp at low wear people will still choose more developed autocurios to remove low wear ones and put in fresh stuff. This is more fair since they have to work for new curios but far from efficient not to do it. So we're back to botland.

Free to play over the holidays is probably a good move to bring in new potential players coupled with the quest system if it's any good.

Targeting arrow is a good step but a lot more needs to be done to more easily change targets too and not attack friendlies.

That's just a prop in Valhalla.

That's the one in the Valhalla, quite simply. It's not presently buildable.

A great step towards making the curio system less of a grindy pain/botville. I always felt like the curio system provided zero gameplay value, but this sure helps lessen the pain.

To be fair, this lowers the gap between casuals and autostudy bots tremendously. Bots programmed to toss curios after a couple ticks of wear and put in fresh ones will have some small advantage, but no longer the 5x LP per hour over casuals.
