You probably noticed recently that Zynga has come up with a new idea to make things a bit more challenging for us: there are item limits for the number of mission items that we can have at a time in our inventory. For example, we can only have 15 Shelf Brackets or 20 Blue Pigment, to mention just a few of the most recent ones.
As you can imagine, the item limit in FrontierVille / Pioneer Trail is starting to get some players upset because, they say, there should be no such limit. And thee are some points to make this valid.
The most important problem with the item limits, at least when it comes to items that we need to ask from our friends, is that we have limited requests too and we can only send them every 12 hours (while many send them once per day). This means that even if we get more, we can’t hold them and this is a bit outrageous.
Also, maybe it would be a little easier to accept if we knew exactly how many of which items we can hold before starting to send the requests to plan ahead a little and make things easier. And finally, the item limit in FrontierVille makes little sense for a mission that requires us 70 items (for example) and we’re only allowed to hold 15 at a time.
On the other hand, it is the item limits that make things more challenging and probably most of the non-hardcore players won’t really get upset by that because they won’t hit that upper limit anyway. But the missions lately have been challenging enough, so this extra challenge might be a bit too much.
I also believe that the item limit has been introduced to Pioneer Trail / FrontierVille to keep the game as secure and smooth as possible – even though we still have problems now and then, probably if we were allowed to hold more, the problems would be bigger.
But what do you think about this? Is this item limit in FrontierVille a good or a bad thing? Sound off in the comment section below!
