It seems Mindark has extended the time between each VU from 8 weeks to only 3 this year(3 months a VU). I'm alright with it as long as they are able to solve the critical problems in mini-patches. But as you see the post exists now is because THEY DIDN't. I don't understand why such simple things like adjusting the droprate of Ark-rares and animal parts take so much time for mindark to do it. This problem delaying the economy of Arkadia from growing by at least 6 months(March>October). They has the tool to adjusting the droprate on the air right after the mini-patches of June 26th, I don't understand why they don't do it on March? And also the bugged mentor system now, newbies are having a extremely steep learning-curve already, and now they make those new blood to wait for 3 months to just get the graduation gifts. I know this post is full of complain but that's because the new timeframe of Vu is a totally fail because mindark can't do things right. My suggestion is it would be much better if we get a mini-patches after the VU, and anotehr mini-patches in 1.5 months. So it gives enough time for PP and Mindark to solve most of bugs in last VU. So BS replies like "we have solved this problem but can only implement it in next VU" would be much less, and I think this way would give a better and more enjoyable universe than the current timeframe. I hope David can bring it to Mindark for some possible changes since the new VU timeframe is seriously holding back the growth of Arkadia. Thanks.
