Sputt Time: The Necessary Evil

Good afternoon. There are those on DiamondFire from both sides on the matter of whether or not Sputt Time is bad. I, for one, think it's bad and don't understand people who play it. However, I will tell you why it's good that it exists. Sputt Time, though created to be a fun experience for hundreds of players, has become a pastime for many trolls. I mean, just look at the messages that some players send while on Sputt Time. I won't name names, of course.
However, it needs to exist. Look at the most severe of these trolls. How often do they leave Sputt Time? Not very often. I actually messaged to Sputt- and he said, to paraphrase, that Sputt Time was a good thing to keep trolls in. And you can see these psychological bits of Sputt Time that contribute to it being a troll heaven. The incremental points system, for example. You gain them so slowly, yet you lose them all and have to start over when you die. Yet, there's one place, one specific place where you can get more. The trolls love guarding that, and they love the feel of making somebody lose everything. Or what about the distinct power dynamic between a player at the end of upgrades and a new player? A new player is in no position to bargain with the veteran player, and the veteran will probably kill them for the miniscule amount of money just to make them lose everything. You find all of that on few other plots, which is why trolls play Sputt Time more than anything. Basically, all of that is why Sputt Time is a necessary evil. Perhaps, one day, somebody can make a plot that mimics the psychology that Sputt Time employs, and the server will be even safer due to the smaller amount of trolls outside Sputt Time and this hypothetical plot.

As a sputt time player, I consider myself to be one of the kindest people on sputt time, and I can confirm there are far too many trolls in this game... If sputt is a jail for trolls than I consider myself a warden, allowing myself to be trolled upon to keep the evils sealed inside the game that is sputt time. Also I wish there was a version of sputt time that was only fighting against monsters instead of ppl bc I really love the fishing, farming, and class mechanics!

I really like the classes and would love a version of the game that is just a sandbox version where u can mess around without a point system, or at least without losing them on death

The only reason everyone thinks Sputt Time is bad is because of the community.

I'm just joking around bro
I just don't like how people go around saying "Sputt time is bad" when its just because they don't like PvP games/are not good at them. It's like a star trek fan saying "star wars sucks." when its just because they like a different show more. People have to stop digging on a game because of the element of the game. I do acknowledge Sputt time is toxic game but I will say that for at least me personally I have never been legitimately upset due to it. It's just a block game. I don't know how many people are like me in this, but I just assume all of the "toxic" people (other than the ones who say actually bad things in chat) are just playing along with the act.
