Well, good morning/afternoon/evening for you all.

Well, I wanted to open a thread touching a harsh topic, but I would like to hear some suggestions. When you get into a low mode and put aside PixPet, how did you recovered interest on playing as you used to, or even higher?

My arrogance made me staying away from the game abruptly, when I used to play 3-4 hours/day (no joke), but now... I'm trying to come back, but I can't just even do something without getting quickly bored.

So I would like to hear some suggestions from you, those fellow members what could give me a hand in this topic. I mean: I want to come back, but I'm desperately trying to find that interest I used to have

I like to set new goals for myself, usually decor goals because that's what this game has plenty of xD I also like to build pet teams for specific purposes, like for example I have one team that I use to find Dianthus flowers, another team for money-making, and so on.

If setting new goals doesn't work, you can always just wait a few months because there will be new content. In fact, you might come back after a hiatus to find that Pixpet Adventure has been released, and that could renew your interest!

With all that said, it's not a crime to get bored of a game! I still haven't figured out how to renew my interest in Flight Rising, and it's been months :P

Hello :)

I'll seriously take your suggestion in count. Right now, I'm only entering PixPet.net as a sort of responsibility: watering plants (no joke)

My last goal in the game was to get ID 100.000 egg. Not getting it because me "waiting 5 minutes" disappointed and infuriated me so much, what I lost all interest on the game. I'm still trying to recover it.

The decorating subject... when I was trying to do it, I suffered for 3 long months, and at the end never could complete it (in fact, that was the reason for me jumping into another goal: ID 100.000)

Oh, and you used to play Flight Rising? To be honest, never registered there don't know, nothing truly called my attention in that website ^^;

I'm mostly trying to collect decoration items for my house and that's about all that keeps me coming back. That and hatching new pixpets, at least! And water plants, of course, lol.

I also am in Flight Rising and have been since the very beginning. I don't play much now as there's not a ton to do but it entertains me whenever they release a new dragon or gene.

I've only been here a few days and I feel like I've already hit a wall. I don't feel like there much to do and the goals mentioned here feel grindy. But maybe it'll get better for me.

oh don't mind me passing by this old thread randomly lol, I thought I'd just leave a small comment on this as well haha

It's a pretty common thing yeah that being a newbie on here in the game's current state feels grindy and very slow-moving. I managed to avoid that personally by doing a few art commissions to get into a new house faster but I can totally get that the average new player trying to get a new house solely by hoarding would get bored quick from the wait...

Luckily unless you're on mobile, the roodoku minigame is now a thing and I totally recommend trying it out if you want faster pixcoin. You have the option of using a sudoku solver to help you, some consider it cheating I think but it's not like, actually against the rules

and yeah once you're in a bigger house (renovated farmhouse is a good one to aim for initially) that allows for more pets, pumpkins and plants, setting deco and pixdex goals should no longer feel like a total grind :D

well that and once pixpet adventure comes out, it'll give players more to do while waiting for pets to return from hoarding. but right now that's still quite deep in development from what I know
