I like AFK farms, and I like having to work to make money. My opinion is controversial though, as most players seem? like they don't really like AFK farms. I think both should be in the game, and both should be large contributing facts to the economy. Not mainly one or the other. Let's taco 'bout it.
Perhaps if farms are big enough they'll still be effective. I just hope the resources needed to make one are somewhat balanced with the economy reset. Wouldn't make sense to spend over 500k on observers and pistons then to not be able to make that money back. Guess it depends on the new prices.
