As a active member of the basing community, the feedback across everyone is appalling. We are aware imagic made these changes, he's WRONG.
He already f***** up with the spar changes he tried to do, he obviously doesn't have a clue what he's doing. Listen son, this isn't era, and we wont let you mess with our game.
You haven't made it easier for gangs to base, you've made it harder. TS and MH are the only bases currently able to go past 500+ hours, no gang with 500 hours will be able to take from psycho or everlasting as their families are so large. They're going to get to 500 hours and be stuck, because they can't progress to 1.5k to get their gang hat!!
The basing system was absolutely fine, you could've made changes in a different way. For instance here's a better approach:
bank 0-1.5k hours
bw, mh and ts with their own milestones too blah blah.
We ask you revert these changes, or do something more acceptable, you will only kill basing. Basing is one of the largest interactive things about Ol' West! We need someone who involves themselves with the game/basing to understand how to make changes to it. You have absolutely NO idea what you've done/what you're doing. Have a lovely day
