The timer when crafting something serves nothing more than a hindrance to anyone crafting anything. Just now, I even lost a Giant Fabric Roll. Do you want to know how? Not because I was being careless, but because the immense lag on the US server, coupled with half of the hammer hits not registering, on top of having to redo nailing 7-8 nails in to the big bag several times over because a timer decided that I just wasn’t being fast enough when I had 8/9 nails in place.
The timer has no place in this game, and serves as nothing more than an extra burden. I’ve wasted roughly 5-6 hours of my time farming a giant fabric roll, only for the game to completely ruin me because of bad game performance, and even worse networking.
