Me and a friend were excited for the multiplayer beta, and during our brief session I noticed something. As the Farming skill isn't shared between players, despite gold being shared, this will inevitably cause one or more players to fall behind in that particular area, especially if you and your friends share crops, as my friend and I did. The only reason why I think this is a big problem is that the Farming skill unlocks significant benefits to the player, like fertilizer recipes, etc. Ultimately, the farming aspect, as a result of the shared gold, is a team effort, and the Farming skill that comes along with progress in that aspect should be rewarded as a group, or at the very least the option should be made available. I understand wanting to keep skills separate among players is important toward the balance and overall performance of the multiplayer experience, but this is something that both of us felt during the time that we tested it out. The only other option that I could see working would be to make the players have individual gold, rather than a collective. Please feel free to discuss this, as I would love to see if anyone else has had similar issues, or if anyone can give some insight.
