Worried that I’m wasting my time here. I’m 5 months and nearly 400 hours in and with every update and developer announcement I think more and more that the game is going in a different direction than I and others had anticipated, and I so desperately want to be wrong. I love this game and community so much it hurts to feel like I’m drifting away from it. This is my conundrum, people want to be creative, I want to be creative! But I can’t when I have to stop and grind for units. Condos are in my opinion single-handedly keeping this game alive for me and many others. I’m almost 400 hours deep into this game and I stopped caring about the plaza and mini-games before I even hit 50. To even build something remotely interesting you have to spend millions of units and anything truly big would require tens of millions, right now the best way to get them is to farm the Casino while you do something else on your PC. I had a conversation with the user AshGe who as many of you know has many a great project and I asked him how he could afford to build such massive things and he told me he hit a jackpot. This left me dumbfounded, to imagine that if he had not been lucky enough to hit the jackpot none of his amazing creations would exist and once Steam Workshop support is added more creators like AshGe will want to make awesome things that will undoubtedly to the fullest extent of the word draw players to the game no questions but as long as the game stifles creativity behind its malformed “economy” Tower Unite may never fulfill its true potential and its sad to even write this. I honestly believe that with the right tools this game could rival similar games in the genre (i.e. Roblox / Minecraft etc.). But until then I’ll just keep grinding and building, and hope one day everyone will be able to contribute to this great game. Please don’t let me down.
Yours Respectfully, Mr. W
