The whole idea of gaming the system and comparing it to a cash machine is very revealing. Inno wants to be a casino, not a game. That's why every new feature is a gamble not a simple "do x, win y". If I wanted to gamble there are thousands of betting sites that don't pretend to be anything else. I have played this game for 3 years. I have spent a reasonable amount of money in that time for my fun, probably around £300. In the last year I feel every decision I am offered is trying to manipulate me to gamble and spend. Its not fun anymore, I feel like I am being taken advantage of by someone who has read too much amateur psychology and is trying to manipulate me, and I am smarter than their pop psychology. Many players in my live world FS feel the same way. Its last straw time. I have good friends in this game, and I used to enjoy it. Please please please rein in the rapaciousness. The real reason for endless quest we all know and Inno will never admit. Its because the manipulators in chief believe it will milk more money out of their player base. I think they are right, at least in the short run. Look back a year from now with a much smaller player base after mass desertion and it won't look so smart.
