How to waste the time of hundreds of people! The story of CC!

Okai, so my friends and I (Among hundreds of other people) were jobbing for CC in the kade. We stayed through the entire break. I didn't realize it was the break, paying too much attention to my station. Nobody in CC told us that it was break, i would've spent my time doing something else while I waited for break to end. I assumed we'd be /payed by hand for our time, but no. Have a great scuppering day, CC.

-Raeka, better than you.

Re: How to waste the time of hundreds of people! The story of CC!

I think you're being a bit harsh. CC did not intentionally 'waste your time', you can't blame them if you have puzzle vision. Besides, I think that's it's just common curtesy to puzzle in the break to help get the ship off the board and ready for the next round, espcially against a BK when it's players vs AI.

It's only 15 minutes, an extra 400poe doesn't really make that much difference to you. In 15 minutes, you can't do that much else in PP, so I don't see what's wrong with a little bit more practice anyway.

Honestly? I was there for the PoE, so it woulda been nice to get some. If they're gonna screw us over like that, then they should atleast buy us dinner first.

Run a blockade some time, and realize how hard it is to win one, let alone make all the jobbers happy the whole way through, you're in no position to bitch about 400 PoE.

Re: How to waste the time of hundreds of people! The story of CC!

I'm so confused. Break? What break?

And I don't think CC would waste anyone's time intentionally. They're not the anti-christ.

Oh, wait...

They must have been desparate for jobbers, because I know a huge chunk of them would have left if they knew they weren't being paid.

Only time I see wasted here was that I accidently read your stupid freakin' post. Will you please pay me 400 poe to make up for this time in my life that you stole from me?

Re: How to waste the time of hundreds of people! The story of CC!

First off, if you're complaining because you went in right before the break and didn't preform your duty enough to get paid, please move your whining to Game Design.

If you're complaining because the vessel wasn't set to blockade pay, you have a point. Yes, they probably should have set it, but jesus, no one's perfect. I've forgotten it plenty of times, and as long as they set it after the fact, there's nothing wrong. Some people shout on the ship to see "so and so" to get paid, some do not. Actually, CC shouldn't have really had to, seeing they're paying really, really well for a brigand king blockade, and that's not even adding the PoE for flag sitting and sinking BK ships.


Honestly, if you're that worried about 400 PoE, see me and I'll give you your darn money, just please do us all a favor and try funding a blockade yourself the next time, it's not so easy. :-)

Edit: I read gud.

So there is a huge chunk of people that are also morons and don't know how breaks work or when they happen?

Well, Goats..it's not like they can go job with Brynhild. For some reason, the Ice Queen's jobbing contact won't job anyone. No idea why.

Yer vessel has been awarded a bounty of 1750 pieces of eight for controlling 35 buoys.
Ye received 166 pieces of eight from treasure recently hauled aboard!
Ye were paid 397 pieces of eight fer yer efforts in the blockade.
Yer reward for guarding buoys is 25 pieces of eight!


 
Did you complain that tart? I have been waiting all day to job for the BK's. What a waste of my life!!!! I want some freaking poe and I want it now!


Remember those Charlie Brown shows where the adults just go wah wah wah wah wah wah wah...

Why does my brain do that every single time Gunner posts?

You cant puzzle during a break. So, basically you were concentrating on.... what?

During the round break? If the ship is on the board you can puzzle.

Re: How to waste the time of hundreds of people! The story of CC!

D'oh. someone smack me.. Well... usually a ship will stay in the board during a round to A.) keep jobbers busy, or B.) because they are shot the hell up and are trying to get off the board.. c.) other reasons, who knows..

If there was a big problem, 000 wouldnt have it the way it is..

Re: How to waste the time of hundreds of people! The story of CC!

This is something that to my knowledge has been brought up in game design. I cant seem to find the tread about it. If it hasn't it should be. If there are puzzlers puzzling during the round break they really should be paid with the auto pay. I never figured out why it wasn't set up like that when blockade pay came out.
