Before anything, I do not own a boat as title says, if they nerf sea monsters now, the huge gap between sea hunters and other players will keep existing As only people with sailboat and frigate on a limited time were able to make huge amounts of profit... If they nerf it, it would actually **** us all people without boat because inflation will decrease/turn back to normal and the gap would never be filled So I propose that they instead buff grinding or other activities to make it to the same profit as sea hunting, this way people will eventually catch up doing other activities without being limited by owning a sailboat or frigate and depending on the guild payouts. Now, how big is this gap created by sea hunters ? To state clear numbers and stop spreading exaggerated information like 7b a week, The real max payout are about 2.5b a week, if we consider that the boom of sea monsters hunting was around 4 weeks, the gap would be 10b that is considering only ONE MONTH of sea hunting payout. ( There are guild that did around 6 to 9 months now) So there are two big problems: - sea hunting excessive profit per hour compared to other much more harder and boring things (gathering, grinding, etc) - huge gap created by it since sea hunting it’s really easy We must not strive to solve only one but both and nerfing sea monster will only solve the first, leaving sea hunters with huge amounts of profits. Therefore, buffing other activities which are harder to at least the level of sea hunt will eventually close the gap created by sea hunting. Now some people will say, “yea lets have everyone run in pen gear and ruin economy”, which actually will not be the case, soon they will implement caphras pen +20 which require an absourd amount of money,( seriously ) So softcap will eventually increase no matter what, the point here is -DO NOT MAKE SEA HUNTING A MUST TO BE ABLE TO COMPETE. -MAKE OTHER ACTIVITIES GIVES AROUND SAME PROFIT TO CLOSE GEAR GAP CREATED BY SEA HUNTING SINCE ITS SO EASY - PEOPLE, DO NOT THINK IN SHORT TERM, NERFING WILL ACTUALLY BENEFIT SEA HUNTERS SINCE THEY ALREADY HAVE 10b or more STACKED ON THEIR STORANGES SO A DEFLATION WILL ONLY BENEFIT THEM.
