I agree with this philosophy. I recently just hit 50 farming. The only reason I got into farming (as my main skill) is because I felt the harvests were so OP. I just loved the fact that you could harvest a few tiles and get a TON of crops. But with the same attitude, harvesting so much made the crops itself dirt cheap in value. In addition, there was really no difference between me and someone with lower level farming.
I personally find it challenging now. I enjoy the fact that lazy farmers get nothing and people are quitting. That's more power to me in all honesty. As crops go up in demand, I'll be more valuable to a village. The only thing that might hold me back is the fact that I use a low ql rake for skill gain. But honestly, that's not going to stop me. And if the rumors of GREATER harvest values are possible, then that'll be a buff in my eyes.
