Actually we would be collecting that granite anyways in the game but the quest would have to be on-hold for almost 24hrs for a next-to-nothing reward and that I do not think most of the players would be willing to wait for ... Most of them would rather decline that quest and go on about doing easier to finish quests to gain other main resources ...thereby increasing the frequency in declining quests which the dev's i guess are trying to bring under control.it is not that bad, we would have collected the granite anyhow;
I call this "sleeper quests" : quests like "gain x coins and get y supplies"
all these quests that reward us for something we would have done even if the quest was not there
A quest asking to Gain 8000 Granite offering just 20 Copper??? 20 Copper for almost 24hrs of granite collection with 7-8 level-2 Granite mines in the city ?? ...And the dev's feel that we should not be declining quests regularly?? Who would even think of trying to do this type of quest ?
