    You suffer what most suffer sadly
    investment insecurity
    one day you can invest 6 digits and over night turns to 5 digits cos MA wants to do so and can do so

    Even tho you bought it long ago, its yours and MA shouldnt do that just out of their damn will
    However most item owners got screwed over time aswell with 0 compensation for the devaluation "forced" by MA's gear change or intruduction

    I can see iron logic in OP numbers and reasoning.
    Can I also see the same in other posts trying to come up with possible other reasons and/or solutions for the problem?
    Meh, not really.

    Should MA pay for the damage they (and nobody else) inflicted? Ideally, yes, they should.
    Will this happen in the real world? Nope, not likely.

    Is it hard to establish a good communication between the player base and the game design/management team?
    They can't tell you what changes they will implement, when and what consequences you should be expecting from all this. Which is exactly what the people are asking them.
    You tell me, is it easy to establish communication between two sides under those conditions? It's borderline mission: impossible, it's an art, it's a technology rooted in black magic and I have never really understood it.
    But I'm a big admirer. We had people who pulled it off. It was damn entertaining, and it was part of the game.

    Would absolutely love it if we somehow could get it back...

    Regardless of whether people want to hunt ambus, and other factors that may be affecting the land income, MA should never mess about with anyone's land area (or other estates) without a very good reason (e.g. fixing trapping exploits) and/or agreement from the owner. Never. Ever.

    I'm still pissed off that my apartment building was moved much further away from the TP with VU10.

    Designers should be required to do 20 hours of hunting and 20 hours of mining before being let anywhere near terrain tools.

    (At least I'm glad to learn that the guy who plants trees at my sleipnir spawning spots isn't after me personally )
    There are many ways to skin a cat but just one way to boil a frog.

    Doesn´t really matter if the changes is the impact for decreased income or not.

    It is about safety of investments in gerneral.

    If you going to buy an LA, you check how that LA is. You calculate what it will be worth, how attractive it is to hunters or miners, and then decide to invest or not.

    Nea´s was mostly flat, what is perfect for hunters using long/medium range rifles, so they can kill mob befor even reaching them.
    Now its hill, even with steep hills you cant even climb, bad for rifle hunters as you have to go a lot closer to tag a mob behind a hill, speak it will reach you, do hits which results in armor decay and fap decay.

    LA42 and Royal have not been overworked, still flat, still perfect for rifle hunters.

    The change surely has an impact on the value of the LA.

    Why at all change the scape of a player owned land, he actually bought how it is/was ????

    Once a area is bought by a player, it should not be changed, easy as that.

    Once more mindark fucked up one of their big investors, as they did with Deathifyer in the past (TI rework).

    Now what will happen if Akoz decides to do the same and go into protest, no longer fertilizing the LAs and let them run dry of Mobs.

    Its not only Nea´s Place owned by Akoz there is some other LAs too, f.e. New Swizerland.

    I am totally with Akoz here and I am also with any other LA owner who suffers from random changes to their LAs made by MA without comunication with the owner befor doing changes.

    Would you like if MA decides to reduce the heal/click of your ModFAP from 160 to 140 ??
    Would you like if MA reduce the range of your gun by 20% ??
    Would you like if MA increase the decay of your gun, so it goes from 3 dpp down to 2.8 dpp ???

    Changing LAs is the same as changing items, and that is a no go if you ask me.

    As said, you buy the LA how it is, and don´t want it changed later, same as you do with items.

    Changing LAs after comunicating with the owners, and both sides agree to the change to make it a better place, then ok, but not fucking up players investments and then not even comunicating with them.

    I hunt in Neas last couple month and yea its not very popular and sweaters are gone

    Just a thought, maybe it was a desperate measure from MA to rid the land area of sweat bots.

    Just going to leave this here, maybe anyone considering "investing" a lot of peds into a land area or something else consider reading the EULA from time to time:

    More like: "Here, take my money, I like your daily f#cking service." 10 years later: "I found a bigger instrument, I don't like yours anymore, please give me all my money back"


    But bottom line is, we really lack communication on that (and any) level of gameplay... it's not normal
