Wow, lighten up...
You don’t have to be an optimist if you’re not a pessimist.
Pipeworks can now make internet posts without having the comments all be asking when the terraria update is coming out. Godspeed, and thanks for all the fish.
Pipeworks other projects slowed them down to the point where I rarely play the game, and only come here for the state of the game posts, hoping that there might be some news. Taking 6+ moths for a bug fix isn't a reasonable time for me. Tbh though, a lot of this is just the bitter aftertaste that still lingers in me after the many many delays that came during the 1.3 development. By the time it came out for PS4, and us Xbox people had to wait 2-3 more moths, I just... Sigh. I hope that the new studio doesn't fall into that pit of setting up expectations, and then failing to meet them. That's ultimately why I'm happy to see Pipeworks go. Still, I must say that they at least have good effort in their work, and they brought console to 1.3.5, despite the long struggle to get there. Perhaps the problem is my expectations of them were just too high going in.
Not the Hotline Fishing Pole, the Lavaproof Fishing Hook found in Obsidian Crates. It's actually extremely common and generally painless to get (it's a 20% chance and Obsidian Crates are extremely common when lava fishing, as well as lava bait being very common as well.)People have been saying #10 is the Hotline Fishing Pole, which I can see, but I really don’t like the idea of more Angler quests. For my own sanity, I’m going to assume it’s just to obtain any fishing rod, because there aren’t any achievements for that and I think achievements are now meant to help guide the player.
