Please Remove the Useless Fatigue System
I am highly active in-game and on Discord, so I get to see a lot of players join the game, play until they run out of fatigue, get confused, then ultimately quit. The fatigue system is not properly explained at all in-game, so when new players end up getting limited by it they get (rightfully) upset because the fatigue system has impeded their ability to play the game freely, and the negative effects come out of nowhere as far as they're concerned.
At the same time, if you look at the marketplace, it's clear that it has done almost nothing to stop the bots. If you just camp the damascus steel listing, you'll see a new bot listing every 5-10 minutes at a significantly below-average price on NA. The market for Legendary Ores has been completely destroyed, to the point where weapon ores are at scrap price now. Only smooth ores have some value now, and probably not for long.
The only thing fatigue does is harm the game. Bots still bot, but players can't farm nearly as well as they used to which makes it harder to compete with the bots. It's trivial for a bot to make an army of new accounts to work around fatigue since they can cheat and instantly kill any monster anyway. It's a huge time investment for a legitimate player to do the same and it's just not worth it for most.
