Re: Never been over 100k

Ooook, well, 32k isn't small change, but you could try jobbing on elite pillages or wagering in inns if you're looking to earn some more PoE.

Re: Never been over 100k

I think if you've been enjoying a relatively inexpensive game for three full years, then you're winning regardless.

Re: Never been over 100k

If you spend the eights because they're in your pockets, buy a chest (ironic, yes) and put them in there. If you do that already and just can't help but spend, convince yourself that the only things that benefit you are weapons and stock for ships for pillaging. And a few thousand as seed money for carousing, to build up your savings even further.

Re: Never been over 100k

Savings for what? If there's enough they don't need to save for to keep em interested for three years, what's the point of saving the poe? It's not like the pirate's going to need something to draw on in his retirement...

Re: Never been over 100k

*shrugs* depends on what he wants, right? He basically said "I suck, in 3 years I haven't held more than 100k in eights". He didn't say whether or not he wanted to try and buy more stuff. So I was going under the assumption that he's played for 3 years, and now he's looking to be able to do more than what he's already done. Typically that requires an investment of some sort, with the foundation being time or "money". *shrugs more*

Re: Never been over 100k

The only time I've ever been over 100K was as a greenie. I wanted a sloop, didn't know how much it cost, and over-saved. (by a LOT! Yay me!) Right now I think I have about 600 poe. (I just bought myself a Tiara!)

But I'm totally cool with having no poe. Because I spend it on things I want - like a lamp collection of every colour of lamp. And now I'm working on a tropical plant collection. Or on events that I run to buy prizes for other people! Or portraits b/c I'm a trophy trollop and wanted my daisy trophy.

All in all, I'm happy being poor! I may not save up my poe and spend it on a shoppe or a familiar, but I spend it on stuff that makes me smile when I walk into my villa or when I log into the game.

Hey Nathwan, I've been playing puzzle pirates for 3 months, but I've never been below 1million. The most money I've ever had is 6million. Just thought I'd tell you how completely 1337 roXxor I am at this game.

/sarcasm


I think many people have never been over 100k. Maybe all those poker pirates, but if you've been playing for 3 years, then you probably aren't one of them!

As long as you are making enough to buy what you need and have the extra to spend on that hat you really need, who cares how much you have?

Har! That doesn't mean yer rubbish - unless in three years ye never got more than 32k total.

I don't see the sense in hoarding PoE unless saving for something big.

I saved up enough to get some operating capital to play with commod running, and will do that again - but in the meantime needed some pretty clothes and a thir sloop and a portrait while I had an eyepatch and a new dress in crew colors....

Now I got a cottage and need furniture for the cottage (Me star is risin' a bit, and I needed landlubber digs to match) and sometime that daffodil trophy would be nice to have, and the cottage needs a sheep to keep the grass in the garden down while I'm at sea, and I'll need more ships to sink when I start getting better at bnav and doing hazardous things....

Re: Never been over 100k

It's not how much poe you make, but how much fun you have doing what you do best. Obviously in 3 years you managed to find enough interest that was NOT poe related. Stick to that. You will often find that the richest pirates are the lonliest.

Re: Never been over 100k

Okay, so I have been over 100k, and I have to admit that the best part of being over 100k is spending it and then being broke again. Sounds like you're not over 100k because you keep spending it; I think you're just a bit smarter than me because I didn't figure that out until after I had over 100k.

Re: Never been over 100k

Oooh my goodness, the 100k mark. I think I've hit it once, due to actually forcing myself to think poker was dumb and I didn't need it in my life *breathes and pets the pretty green table*, and this was also went Atlantis was brand new and payouts were outrageous.

I've yet to hit it again, primarily because saving doesn't do much for me. I don't have goals to take over the ocean, I don't care about running pillages or stocking up much for other things. I buy clothes left and right, donate poes to poker players (gah I lost again, oh well), help newer players/crewmates/flagmates/hearties out if they really need it, or put up those random stick fights with a bunch of stuff I've cleaned out of my cottage.

I suppose it could be a fun goal to have sometimes (the goal of trying to reach 100k or more), but at the same time you're missing out on so much of the game (in my humble opinion) when you save save save and not have fun with it. I know so many players who hoard and save, and save, and save and I've heard the whole "nahh can't do this, can't do that.. I'm saving...". It's fake money, not real... enjoy it while you have it.

I have about 200k at the moment. I just don't spend poe, so it builds up regardless despite the fact that I don't actually do anything profitable other than jobbing. I occasionally wonder what I am missing by not having a house or dozens of war frigs or fancy clothes.
I doubt I will keep this poe level for long though, I am likely to buy someone an elephant on a whim or pay over the odds for a frig + stock because I fancy navving in a Flott or Atlantis.

Is there a point to this ramble? Maybe not, but if there is it is that the amount of poe ye have is a very poor indicator of how much fun ye are having.

Re: Never been over 100k

I played Midnight for a full year and never made over 50k at any one time. The most I have had on Hunter was well over a million WITHOUT buying dubs.

I always found it very hard to earn money on Midnight as well. Maybe it's the reason why fams go for so little over there in the fam auctions.

Re: Never been over 100k

The one time I saved up 150k, I found myself wondering what to do with it. So I blew it on silly clothes and Scimitars.

If you don't have big dreams of familiars and huge fleets there really isn't too much to worry about poe-wise. Having a giggle and hating everyone on the ocean is much more fun than having lots of pointless pretend money.

Wow I am missing this game - unable to play atm due to living in 4 houses... Mmmm poe... Might log on and spend some real quick.. Mmmm....

Re: Never been over 100k

On Midnight the only way i get any poe is from Flotilla attacks with my flag, if you go with the right people you get get at least 1k per sink and if you find the best flotilla crew or flag ships are going to be sinking left and right non-stop.

Re: Never been over 100k

If you're enjoying the game, PoE isn't important. ^_^

However, for some of us, the accumulation of wealth is a bit of a challenge that we like to accomplish.

No, it's not poker. It's foraging. Much more satisfying.

Re: Never been over 100k

Having poe is over-rated.

I don't like having it, to be honest.

When I'm poor I care more about pillages. I pillage more and take bigger care when I nav / work harder when I job because I want it to be profitable.

When I have lots of money I don't really care.. and often find myself just chatting when really I'd probably rather be rallying a pillage together.

As Dorien said though, if you've enjoyed playing the game for 3 years like that, it doesn't matter anyway.

There's not much you can do with 3,000,000 poe that you can't do with 40k, as a casual player.
