Well, I'm new and only have a little over a month under my belt of gameplay to speak of so my this is going to be very simple post.

Highs:
1.Trophy Lodges (This was the make or break feature for me and the tipping point of why I was willing to get into the game.
2. Bobcats. I Love them. They're not my favorite animal to hunt but I Love that kitties are in the game and that I have some in my lodge and that I can find them when I am in the mood for hunting them.
2. The beautiful resurves and the game in general.

Lows: Well I can say a lot here but it mostly has to do not with the game but with being charged for features that shouldn't cost me extra like loadouts. It's the feeling of being 'sold' even after I pay a lot of money for the poduct. I don't like people 'selling me poopoo' and it utterly sucks to feel like someone is selling me something even after I payed more than enough for a game. I resent that deeply and it taints my feelings about playing The Hunter. It doesn't warm my heart as my favorite games do. It taints my experience with anger and discomfort. And no amount of others 'accepting' this sleazy way of selling a game is going to cause me to 'normalize' and aclimate to what I don't accept. There are a great deal many things in this game I have no interest in paying extra for and if another game comes along that comes close to this that I can puchase and actually own...i'm off this train for sure.

Too many fun devs leaving - Luna left, Alena left (temporarily!), Johanna left, Stefan got taken by the army. Sad times.

Luna left? Bummer! I was always very impressed with her work. In that case I'm not going to extend my membership in February with 1 year, but 3 months.

TT was released in October 2016. Yes, time is flying! ;)

I also feel it is pretty sad that Luna left. She was my hope for more website development. I know she was more back end but still, someone needs to make sure the nice features seen in the front also work in the back.

It's really sad that Luna left. :cry:

But I understand that she is really good in what she's doing and naturally she will be looking for a new challenge in her career. EW and th:C might be wonderful projects to work for, but it's likely not the best paid job if you're a programmer - and Stockholm is way too expensive! :roll:

Good luck for your future, Luna! :)

The best thing about this year's Christmas is that, despite most of the team being on holidays, the Kiwi will always be here for us. He's an addict! I wonder if they even pay him or if he pays them for being allowed to work there. :lol:

1) What were your three highs in 2017? (In case you have more, pick your favourite ones)

- Piccabeen Bay, i love this reserve, some things to fix again but great release.

- The bait and refill system.

2) What were your three lows in 2017? (Same here - pick three biggest disappointments for you personally)

- Shooting tripod Rest : i buy it but don’t use it, too long to put in place.

- Hunterscore 2.0, the idea is not bad but the rules changed for players like me who spend time to made achievment since years.

- Event leaderboard based on Jolly points and the thing we see actually : players who spend 200 camping supplies per day to spawn mash, playing 16 hours to be in top 3.
I saw in a thread ( don’t remember where ) someone who propose few simple things to do an event something fairly for all, it looked something like that :
- Event Competition : 20 points to 1 for the Top 20 players. 1 or 2 attempts max per day or 1 or 2 result submission.
- Event mission : 1 or 2 points.
- No jolly points.


3) Which year was better in theHunter, in your opinion, 2017 or 2016? Hint: you can check the same thread for 2016

- 2017 definitively : Since Alena is a producer, the community is more listen, many bugs were fixed. TH Classic as a future.

4) What are your main two hopes for theHunter for 2018?

1 - Team competition : a good way to boost TH Classic players and to convince new players to come.
David ( Caledonianblues ) and Tod1d worked hard to put this possibility in non official competitions. This format works fine. EW should add these Team comps in addition to daily competitions. The possibility to hunt with a friend ( or 2, 3, 4 players max ) and compete against other teams for a trophy and Em$.
We could buy ticket book to participate or a few amount of Em$. Rewards should be more interesting than actual daily comps rewards.

2 - The possibility to put a treestand, blind, tripod in another player game. The stuff would be removed at the end of the hunt.
