Its been years since i've ever had a negative opinion about game content, even longer since ive actually felt the need to give feed back on it. This update kind of stinks. I am 120 farming, and i still do it because i like to. I will agree, the rate of xp is decently high and i can see it being reduced a little, but by 50%? That seems a little much. Plus the other changes to pof dont seem necessary. Mostly this update, in my opinion sucks because we have been enjoying pof since it came out and we're used to the xp rates, and the food, and the breeding times. Yup, maybe we did get spoiled a little on this one. But to make changes on this scale,, now, is not cool.

It's kind of like... giving your kid an allowance every week for a year or 2, and then having the neighbor's kid complain that he thinks its too much - so you decide to cut it in half and add extra after school chores to his list. Who does that?

Im not sure about others, I might well be in the minority when it comes to what i think. but if i was still after farming gains, this update would really make me sour. I feel bad for those who enjoyed it. We've already got painfully boring skills like div and rc (yes there some that like these no doubt), so why not let members have ONE skill thats fun, and has fun xp rates. Would it be so bad?

Just sharing my thoughts.

Sure, this example would work if the nerf was done due to player complaints, but they didn't nerf PoF because players complained about it, they did it to increase MTX sales. Now, in order to get the pre-nerf rates, you gotta pay extra.

So to give a more fitting example, it's like a drug dealer giving their customer a free taste or several of them, whatever it takes to get the customer addicted, and then starting to charge money for it because they grew used to it and can't live without it anymore. Now replace the dealer with Jagex and players with the customer and you get the situation of PoF nerf.

yup, get that.
So you need to get it from TH keys. which also means they hope that ppl buy the keys too. And that is fine, this game is a business so i cant argue trying to increase profits. But at the same time... i think its lousy that it be changed NOW. That doesnt seem right to me.

blackwing would be right except its not.

my th spins dont yield 4 more ado dragons to fill the raptors quota of 6.
nerfing breed rates rigs the pump and dump fraud for friends of mods (j mods or p mods) who met girls chatting in farm oriented clans or friend chats.
they get a humongous boost to sales of their sock puppet shilled army of dummy accounts ageing 10 dragons each, and they will all be visible using autotyper bots at w2 hawking ados all week.

to fight back we have to report all the autotypers at w2, beg them to close the honeypot trap, and either fix the problem re-enabling breed rates or NUCLEAR BOMB the quota from raptor to 2 dragons sold ea 3 days which will yank the sales right back out from under the w2 cabal.

so no. not rigged for th. rigged for billions of dollars of fraud that benefit interested parties.

jagex dont care i think beacuse mottible people complained about this but just do the nerf anyways and later they gonna wonder why not many people use it anymore tbh i wouldnt be suprised if pof ends up being dead content and the have the nerves to call this shit update a improvment pleasee this is only the second time in like 12 years i complain about something on the forum but this is just dumb iam also with you on all small xp nerf wouldnt be bad but 50% is to much would be nice at least someone from jagex would say why they nerfed it so hard and the breeding rate asswell its to much and in my eyes almost not worth my time anymore to check everyday zygo's take to long to breed but spiders and scheeps are like zero xp now the only way i can see why pof is ussefull now is because of magic beans woody the only time i complained before was because boss drop tables where like 70% stone spirits this is almost as bad as that one

You'll get it when you deserve it.

Glad to see im not the only person livid enough to come to the forums. This is is utter bs Jagex and you know it. Lowering breeding rates and xp for zygos in example will kill zygo growing, shrooms are going to become way overpriced and then prlly crash because nobody wants to pay 5k a shroom and just stops with medium pens because spiders and sheep arent worth shit. We wont be able to maintain dragon quotas personally being forced to buy from people. I dont agree with the xp, as it wont get any more mtx out of me because key purchasing is a rip off but I do play multiple accts using bonds for membs. But to also nerf the playability of POF is just asking for more dead content. Thought yall put together a team to revive the game and dead content, nah just trying to jagex more stuff into death... alright I got u, time to think about quitting before Jagex takes this greed to far. Smithing and spirits are already killing the game, t60 and t70 smith doesnt sell for shit, takes to dam long to smith so making to d/a is dead, no good or decent amount of spirits is ever dropped killing combat in a lot of areas, what's next Jagex?! I know, let's list our favorite activities and see how long it takes for jagex to come up with a MTX plan of action to ruin them as well..... will say 5min afk mining and butterfly hunting are dope, kudos for those.
