This week was the first one back to classes for my family, which means a LOT less time for gold making because I’m homeschooling my 6 year old son. He was diagnosed with autism and global developmental delay when he was 3, so after looking into the resources available, my husband and I decided that the best course of action would be to homeschool. Moving on..
A grand total of 52k gained on one server (thanks to making some hefty purchases), and only 22k gained on my second server. While technically I am still ahead of where I need to be in order to reach gold cap in 365 days, it is a far cry from what I had hoped to be making. The truth of the matter is you get out of gold making what you put into it. If you don’t put any / put very little effort into it – that is going to reflect in your numbers.
It doesn’t bother me, I understand the situation and what I need to do if I want to rectify it, but it is a bit frustrating to have to micromanage life to this degree. If I don’t make gold cap that’s perfectly OK, it is just a dream for this casual player since I haven’t had gold cap since I bought my brutosaurus.
It also doesn’t help that lately I’ve been spending more and more time on a medium/high population server where sales actually happen (gasp). My stuff might not be selling for as much as it does on my low pop, but they do move, which is (quite frankly) a really nice feeling. So much so that I’m debating just setting up shop there permanently. I made 400k this week on that server, something I can only pull off when I really dedicate myself to gold making on the low pop ones I play on.
Of course as always the main point to any challenge is to have fun – which I am still doing, even if it is in a roundabout way. I love making gold, I love seeing progress. I just wish I were seeing more of a forward momentum than I have been.
As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
