Traditional maintainance day in Istaria, therefore had little time to play.
Crafting went wrong since the very begining. My tactic usually is simple:to find Massive tree, cut it to fill some half silo and then search forn re-born Massive tree thus repeating the circle untill I have some 3 or even 4 silos.
This time Massive tree was nowhere to be found. Well, I thought I would go for Yew trees. But once again, no Massive trees in sight and folks in chat told there was one, just over-guarded.
Tried to chop single Yew tree...and got 50 logs from it, while normal maple gives me about 150 logs. And I managed to make boards with the bad ratio 4:1 (the worst is 5:1 and the best is 2:1). Advancement was too slow to level up.
To make things more difficult, there were some problems with silos (could not access some for a while) and - our Guil house in Bristugo. It showed it was empty, with all my trophy tokens gone. At the end it was available and the trophies were not gone.
Of course, folks in the chat began to report new levels achieved. Only I from all crafters failed to achieve anything at all. Felt sad because of this. Everyone levels up, it is just me with this maple that gives little experience and yew is very ineffective.
Folks tried to cheer me up (it's Universal soldiers chat after all), but I feel it is more to self-confidence. I made my weaponsmtih...and its skills are not required by anyone except me. And eveyrone is jet-levelling...just not me. I was given one advice though and will try it today.
Went offline for a bit to calm down. Later, when returned, I finally found that unlucky Massive tree. When I finished it, I was asked by Player S. to help with crafting. Finally, I found something usefull and the rest of the day harvested slate. I hope Player S. advanced at least by one level.
Such was the day. Maybe today's crafting would be better one.
