Not a Hater LOL

I see alot of 'security updates' lately due to bugs that people have found and exploited (intentionally and not). I also see it being said that one person cannot do it all, or if they can it is a huge job and burden. It is too much. I agree.

It seems to me that a solution should be fairly obvious. A game of this size, that brings in the kind of revenue it does, should have a team of employees to test things BEFORE they are released. If 'the company' would be willing to pay employees, and yes, reduce profit a little in the process, they could be more confident of strong, bug free products. The other solution would be to slow down, and stop releasing new products, until the old ones have been thoroughly tested.

We see people still having issues with things that came out a long time ago (shubbies, potions, farms, etc...), that have not been fixed, but the rush is always on to release the next 'big thing'.

Wili, do yourself a favor. Hire some people you trust and learn to delegate. Slow down on the new stuff, and fix the old stuff. You will be less stressed and take less crap from the 'haters'. LOL

The bug with the farming wasn't easy to test.  I noticed it while I was getting help with the farms.  It's something that was so random and not even meant to happen.  It's not always easy to be bug free with testing.  Some wouldn't even know what to look for when it comes to finding every single bug.

I'm glad you found the bug, and were honest and reported it. Worm prices have led some of us to believe there was a bug people were exploiting but didnt know what it was to try to report or resolve it.

My point in my post though.... was not only about the farm bug. It was about Fish Hunt in general. Wili has been heard to say MANY times in lgh chat, in blogs and in group notices how overworked he is and what a burden trying to do the majority of everything alone is. He says 'he doesnt have the luxury' of a team, but that is not true. It is his choice.

I'm a bit of a control freak, so I get it. Sometimes it seems that the only way to get things done right is to do it ourselves. Maybe this is part of Wili's thinking. But Fish Hunt has grown alot, and continues to. I think it unrealistic to for one person to try and do so much. At some point, you have to be willing to pay talented people you trust to help. And, again I think the speed with which all of the Second Ads stuff has grown and diversified doesnt help. New stuff is released before the old stuff is fully tested and at least relatively bug free. No, you cant catch them all, but.... c'mon.... lol

Anyways, as I've said, I enjoy Fish Hunt and have participated for a long time. I'm no 'Wili Hater'. I do however see room for improvement.

Sorry Dayz, I definately did not mean he didnt trust you guys but that he needs more help to develop, test, and run the number of projects, and projects of the size he is trying to create.

The things that WIli can not delegate are those which require access to the core of his work . Everyhting else is delegated . :)
