Why is this happening?



The Xebec and Brigs both had below 15 people. My friend Jackie Chan and I had a very similar reaction to this situation, and the worst part is, this happens almost daily

Re: Why is this happening?

Hi, welcome to Viridian, you must've come from Mala? If so, would you like your free tour now?

O RLY? Where is that said? Chat logs are not permitted with names. If people said something, then you have to at least obliterate their names. But I don't see where names have to be censored just because they appear in the game.

Re: Why is this happening?

You probably only got annoyed at this because you wanted to load one yourself, though, so it's okay. It wasn't your fault.

Re: Why is this happening?

It's getting to be a real problem in recent weeks. For my mil runs, they've taken hours longer than they should have because I'm getting overjobbed by 100 other runs. When the oceans merge there are a few steps we can take to correct this.

1)A thread like this which denotes good pillagers/Atlantis runners.

It will help at least those of us on the forums determine who runs good runs, and who's are less than great.

2) This is more of a personal thing, but if you're loading first, and someone is overjobbing you for the same map, sink them. It's a practice I'm going to start using, and is probably the most direct way to deal with the problem.

My biggest qualm with the link on Sage is that it's hard to find a specific navver in there. If I create the thread, I'll try to update the original post as best I can with a link to post made by someone making the review.

Mkay, might be good to give people insight in who to job for, but it could have it's downsides aswell. Player who excel at something in YPP nowadays, got there trew hard work and lots and lots of practice.

Now with that in mind. Let's say Mr. ABC runs his first ever Citadel run, but he get's sunk before entering the Citadel. He will get a bad review and people will point and laugh. Chances are he will probably never fill a ship again, or atleast not with players who are decent at some of the puzzles.

Plus praising those who run Atlantis trips 24/7 because they have nothing better to do wont help either.

Re: Why is this happening?

Or we could implement a 1 ship per grid mechanic where if a secondary or tertiary ship enters the safe zone a battle sequence is initiated.

The active ship on grid would have a yes or no dialog box. If they accept, the two ships are enveloped in citadel like protection and pulled into a swordfight. The loser has their SMH chart dust on the spot. The other ship can keep on keepin on.

If the active ship refuses, a 30 minute timer starts where they can continue on the grid for the duration and are forcefully removed to the LP when time runs out and are unable to trigger a reentry for two hours. The ship that initially triggered the battle sequence gets dibs.

This will piss so many people off that only the diehards and the pros will want to try to fill a ship.

Re: Why is this happening?

There is nothing wrong here, You gotto get used to how to job on viri. Only thing that saddens me that people have no idea how to load a successful one, and job random people. Yes that waste us time, since a few good people get there too. But enough connection and you know 90% of all the ones that matter.

We still managed to outjob all those people, more then one time. I just want people to have patience for waitin, since I job selectivly, I check what stations we need, what sf they have, test sf em for no fakes. No fuckin random jobbin as most do. (Yes we have around 90%+ win cit rate.) And if You want to do cit run, check if anyone already there, or come with same ship as me. Let's play fair.

And people keep asking why this game is dying? Players who have 5-6 years of playing experience have no room for newbies whether as a jobber or someone trying their hand at smh.

Just because you are better doesn't mean that you naturally have loading rights over a newbie. Smh isn't all about the same old navers. If you have difficulties, load a CI.

Newbies are annoying, they laze, ship hop when you loses a SF, that's how the games work. Well, find a solution.

1) I havn't done that in months, and that was originally done to create a reputation for me here.

2) I never said I was good.

3) I don't do mil runs on Sage because I have no reputation there.

Edit: I also play on Viridian, why would I load on Sage?

I'm not really sure why you quoted me in that. I have plenty of room for them.

My last three crews were greenie-friendly and I gave a free sloop to new officers after his/her 25th supervised battle (despite lots of resistence from my SOs, and the OMs banning my fleet). I've lost allies because I often favored younger flaggies over allied navvers in kades. Even when I was super evil bad man, greenies were still an essential part of my plans, the only asterisk being the fact that they were basically blitzkrieg bombers and had no idea what they were running into.

Anyways. Your message is strong and has merit, just be careful who you aim it at. :)

Just as an FYI, i've been playing Viridian for five years now and April will make it 6. I'm plenty aware on how jobbing here usually is, and this is NOT the norm. It's both the fact that there were only 600 people online at the time for these many ships as well as this many runs are loading at the same time that lead up to bad news for everyone
