I have logged 2,930 hours on this game. I purchased it several alphas ago and it has been my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE for years.
But this new linear loot system is killing me with bland boredom. I know precisely what I am getting from loot crates early game. Nothing of worth.
I loot an entire Shotgun Messiah factory to get nothing but a high level blunderbuss. After blunderbuss. After blunderbuss. After blunderbuss.
There is no point to breaking open safes. I am able to craft better weapons that I can every find in a gun safe or loot crate for weeks in gameplay.
Zero randomness to loot. No exciting surprises. Bland, boring, GRINDY. It does not matter if I take the Lucky Looter perk. Bland repeats of the same low level gear. There is no joy for taking the risk of raiding facilities.
It this rate, I have no desire to GRIND, GRIND, GRIND for days on end before I can get a piece of decent hardware of ANY type.
I am beyond disappointed. Doubt I'll bother getting to 3,000 hours. It's just a grindy snoozefest now, no matter how pretty you made the graphics.
This has not been my experience with A19.
Granted I started playing the week before the beta broke.
But I have started several games and in almost all of them I have gotten AK 47's and pistols in the first few days. In a couple of the games I was even surprised to find pistols in the toilets LOL
