Heh. If I could play at work I'd hop on and see if I can get a kill in. That would get me a few levels.

50/50 is no secret, although I'm about $1b in the hole. :(

exp is in the hole right now. Everyone is only getting about 1/4 the exp. as they were prior to about 20 minutes ago.

The game is having problems with the strength of some people being over a certain amount, so it's turning their positive strength into negative strength. It was fantastic until the exp went down the tube.

This is s**t. The exp gain from attacking someone is around 15% of what it used to be. For example, attacking someone used to yield 15k exp, now it yields 2.5k exp. Not really worth it.

Thats weird. I hit (or think I hit) hitmetipme24 and I got the experience and levels, but the IW says he was killed by someone else. Can't complain too much obviously, heh.

(Can't believe our backup punter punted the ball thirteen whole yards before it went out-of-bounds. We were so close to a shutout. Ugh.)

OSU had luck on their side today =P all kent state has going for itself is our running back has the most rushing yards in the nation b/c hes like 5'6 and hides behind the defensive line.

edit* about your last mail.... do we have to only recruit people from this forum?? it might be handy to pick up a few members so we can destroy ports

Primarily, yes, but we do accept and have accepted outside people, usually friends of current members.

Since we have been quite prosperous lately, we might get a little more active on recruiting. We just want to make sure our real members are taken care of, or have priority. On the other hand, new, outside members will likely be considered for a Chain if they're contributing more. Even if you work your ass off and aren't chosen, you at least contributed to the gang. Selfish pirates? Never. :)

This "game" is starting to remind me of all the startup MUDS I used to see back in the early to mid 90's or so, except for the business aspect (wish i had thought of this model back then). I've only been logging on for 2 months or so and I'm starting to not recognize it now. I'm really surprised by the lack of admin feedback to complaints considering it IS a business. Back in the telnet MUD days, the same things would go on. You'd have a bunch of people who had no clue on how to balance a game or code it or anything beneficial who just got off on satisfying their friends with spanky shit so they could rule their own little domains and whatnot. As time moved on, the hooks, tricks, and shortcuts of the game were diminished or eliminated but there was no wipe so the high level people stayed that way and any new people had to grind it out even harder. On RTS, the changes are way too sweeping and damaging. They may as well just get everything fixed as much as possible, actually write ot a PLAN for the game (with pencil and paper), do some flow charts to get the balance correct as possible (with board and dry erase marker) and for real make this game good. THEN inform the people that RTS 2.0 will be released at such n such date and its a clean slate. Those who come back will come back, and there will be new people also.

So why do I hang around? I haven't figured that out yet. I have never played WoW or any other graphical multi user dungeon. Like I mentioned earlier, I did play MUDS a decade ago or so. I understand the psychology of these kinds of games to some degree. You invest time, and money and you become part of a little community that you won't/can't give up just like that. When you look at it from a 3rd persons perspective, this game is about as pointless as you can get.

It occurred to me that when I level up, I get more training point energy, then I realized that since there apparently is no cap to levels then there is also no point to 'leveling up' to get more training points. I mean, if I'm gonna wait till I'm level 140 or 200 to buy 300 bucks worth of points and awakes and boosters and 'train hard', why not wait till level 300 or 500 to do the same thing? Or why not just do it now? Thats just one example of the direction less nature of this game.

This is long and poorly written, but those who get my point probably understand what I'm getting at. I'm not really bitching and whining, just letting out whats been on my mind for a few weeks now.

ya this game kinda goes nowhere but i still find it kinda fun. i used to play EQ and WoW and always was at end game material and once you get there, it goes nowhere until something new comes out 2 years later. this is more of a social network. also you dont have to put as much time in this game as others. i sit at my comp, play RTS, play guitar, and occasionally do my homework (but this is rare). ya the admins suck and treat this game like a private CS server but it doesnt really affect me being such a small person in this game. its just more fun than not having anything to do imho.

Doesn't affect me much. They'll never get more than the $9 I spent three months ago. If it gets to be purely shit instead of just about purely shit, I'll have no problem leaving their mess behind.

You are right pjpwnsu, we spend a decent amount of time (not a huge amount at any one time, but it does add up) leveling up, training etc, but not really going anywhere. Not sure why I do, but I do. Something about this is enjoyable. One of the drivers for me is to get strong enough to dominate some of the pirates that were f**kers to me earlier. I keep names and am biding my time.

Exactly. But at the same time, the original poster could have introduced us to any number of clones of this game and it would have been the same and we would no know we're missing out of the 'fun' of RTS.

I think the business model of this is almost genius. It seems to play to the very nature our natural instincts as human animals. Goals (even imaginary), drama, conflict, 2 ways to communicate one real time, the other delayed. Our innate desire to keep up with the Jones or surpass them.....quicker than the next guy. Perceived violence. Covers just about everything. If they had the ability or desire to code sex in here somehow, the game owners would be billionaires. Of course you don't have to spend a dime, but then you can't do all of the above and you put yourself at a disadvantage.

I'll still be in the herd.

Not my favorite teams but I think you are mistaken. Boston will pwn your Indians.

Any one watch the Cowboys and Patriots game. What a game until the 4th.

Wow. I go so many days at a time doing Dig and Lucky Dip without finding any items, and just now I found an Admiral Skull and Cocoa Root on the dig, and the Lucky Dip gave me breeches. Did they tweak the odds? Three items in one day after months of no items.
