Please make things actions. Afk fishing/mining/pet leveling is bad design. If its macro easy, needs to be changed. Content should be in depth and rewarding. leaving pc to run 24 horas a day is waste, not good play.
But I mostly agree. I'm all for dedication and putting effort in over macros, afk wait times, NPC automation and repetitive grind.
It's not even just about afk macroing etc, it's also about player control, there need to be more reward for engaging with in-game features and being able to do the things manually. For example breeding and leveling creatures, farming fields and much more.
