Polar Bear

Postby Ludante » February 12th, 2016, 11:28 am

Like the new feature in WRR, I think it is very cool..


Update quote:
"However, naturally, we had some major concerns about introducing this animal to the game, given our stance on ethical and responsible hunting, and a Polar Bear is a vulnerable animal, the hunting of which is highly restricted in real life. We wanted to do it right. So, we tried to simulate real life conditions for hunting the Polar Bear as much as possible and the result has become the event-based game design which will be unique for this species at this point. According to the design, a handful of Polar Bears will spawn in Whiterime Ridge reserve, which you will not be permitted to shoot unless they attack you. Polar Bears killed in self-defense will not yield any score, nor will there be a harvest screen. Our good old Doc will of course send you an educational message on the matter too.

From time to time there will be special events in the EHR during which the Polar Bear population will increase due to various natural influences and animal control. During such an event the aforementioned restrictions will be lifted and players will be permitted to hunt Polar Bears like any other animal. Those events will run for long enough for players with not so much time on their hands to take part in and they of course will be announced well in advance. I am sure that you all have a lot of questions about this game design, so please ask away in the forum and we will try to address them all."

I like it too, or another possibility would have been something like you can kill 3 or 4 bears/real week, but the way they choose is good too

Sorry for my english

it is funny how most people in the status update (the posts made) are disappointed with this new feature while the people in this thread are quite happy with it thus far :mrgreen:

So there is no score awarded if you kill one in self defense? Scoring will be allowed only during special events?
Will there be skills and achievements for them? Those special events need to have a kill limit or only those hunters that can devote endless hours of hunting during the special events will get any real achievements out it.

I applaud the effort in making a new game play design but this needs some serious thought.

It makes no sense to me, but then, you can't please everyone. I can wait until the next animal. I'm sure it won't be long
