Marston's Law

Recommended Posts

This day, November, 16, 2018 I am establishing Marston's Law, which states: Items that seem ridiculously overabundant and plentiful shall always become sparse, infrequent, even rare once you begin searching for them specifically and in earnest.

At the beginning of the game I saw so many Pronghorn Sheep that they seemed like vermin. The first thing I dragged into camp was a Pronghorn Buck, and I was a little ashamed. I thought to myself that the game was a bit "pronghorny." Now that I'm trying to find one to tick off my camp improvements, I can't find one for love or money. They've evaporated. I see what seems to be a juicy, perfect pronghorn or 5 on the horizon, get out my binocs, and sure enough they are mangy White Tail's, of which I need none. Where were they when I needed them?

An so it goes with rabbits, squirrels, boars etc. To the point where I'm wondering if they coded it into the game just to laugh at my sorry ass.

I just shake my head and say... it's Marston's Law.

Give me a shout if this has happened to you, just to know I'm not crazy.

i think it's just coincidence.  But yeah it seems like they thin out when you need to hunt them.  

Spoiler

Coming out of Annesburg last night i ran across a ton of pronghorn between Elysian Pool and Hearland overflow. 

They seem to like to run with the deer, makes them sometimes hard to spot.  I had 3 or 4 perfect hides and a couple perfect buck hides from them, till i died running into a mob of lawmen.  Never eat dinner and ride your horse at the same time when you have a high bounty lol

I have often suspected that the game 'knows' what stage you are on with quests/challenegscollectibles etc, and when you are hunting using eagle eye, bow etc, and adjusts accordingly.

It sees you when you're sleeping
It knows when you're awake
It knows if you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake …

It does adjust certain events and behaviors based on your actions, so who knows?

LOL It's got the jump on us! How do you beat a game like that??? Some b*tch at camp keeps gettin on me about not doing my chores. A video game that sees into your soul, this is how Skynet starts!  😂
