its PA's respect toward its playerbase, 350 CP is the soft cap already, majority playerbase way above it, majority of forum warriors/social media posters below 350, you can clearly see for who this new quests - nobody, because players can't do them, and those who below 350 CP won't do them anyway.

It doesn't matter anyway because above 425 CP, the next lvl requires so much exp that there's no point in wasting time on it anyway.

Also the entire CP system should be changed, all "link" nodes eg. heidel pass reduced from 3 CP to 1 CP. Fence reduced to 3-5 CP from the current 10 CP (or even better, fences should be obtained from quests (we only have one from quest) and crafting). And most importantly: the city house system should only require you to pay in silver, without having to use CP. Unfortunately, PA will never change that because they earns a lot from slots in warehouses. Game is getting bigger and requires more CP, someone who is interested in alchemy, for example, must have a huge network of production nodes.

Currently I have about 60CP free (from 423) but I don't have any fence, I don't have container, I don't have any workshop, and I bought a lot warehouse slots from IS, and soon we will get a new area where Port Ratt was and again another CP to spend.

Yes! I'm so disappointed.

They keep adding area and nodes and workshops, but there's no way to get the Contribution Points you'd need to actually use them to their full potential. If you play at a certain level, it's not as if you can do without the storage slots in the cities. Shuffling around CPs to try out the new nodes or workshops isn't really feasible as a result.

I absolutely agree that the fence system needs to be revamped so it needs less CP or no CP. Connection nodes definitely shouldn't cost more than production nodes. And oh yes, the city system needs an overhaul! I like the idea of silver for city housing. I'd be fine with various conditions for it, like level, amity, quest chains for each city... that could be made really fresh and fun.

As it is, I feel you reach the soft cap too quickly. And then al that is left is frustration, with new and intriguing options just out of reach because you'll never get the CPs you need to try them out...

I think PA thinks imp cooking is too good already, they cant raise 421 cap or we will get "too much" free silver
