Last minute bitching.

Post by Major » Fri Sep 17, 2010 5:00 pm

* Later today, all solar cannons will begin consuming 35 ore per hour instead of 25.

ok we knew that, thats cool, you gave us a week plus to let that gel

All solar cannon shots per burst will decrease 30% to allow for this change to not create ore shortages Wait ...WHAT???

Why did you (toonces) make an announcement and give me a week to make all these changes to all my planets just to monkey wrench it at the last minute?

If you said right from the top this is the way it will be I'm forced to believe you.

I am very pissed about this. Myself and my corpmate spent a ridiculous amount of fuel and time making sure our planets could support our solar cannons and you just FORCE me to revisit each col to change them AGAIN because at the last...and i mean last possible moment you decide to completely change what you gave me a week plus to prepare for.

Honestly hellion must have spent 100 hours and untold thousands of gallons of fuel this week making adjustments...this is complete I love puppies...you tell us one thing and do another.

The point is you should have said your intentions from the beginning.

I praised you for giving us a heads up on such a huge change to colony settings, ...but then you hug it up.

/slap

EDIT: This has been changed back to the original announcement.

I guess I'll just do it the simple way and increase the cost without changing the number of shots, since that's all the news said.

if he didn't decide at the last minute to change this....which you had no way of knowing he was going to...your solars would have cut off anyways, forcing you to "do work".

...and you call me a lazyass :roll:

I like that, because that will also make them a bit more valuable, especially on rebangs, where they are rarely used except to harvest.

Toonces said he'd do the solar thing like 4 days ago. Now at midnight i find out i have to go around all of my corp's colonies? I mean I'm sorry major but this is a lot worse. Please do it the other way toonces :(

Just dont drop solar on cols not losing ore.. unless that makes it harder.

wow, ...awesome he told you personally and not ALL THE OTHER PLAYERS ...really great stuff.

seriously. i wouldn't have cared if solars cost 500 ore per hour. just let a guy know wtf is up and stick to it...honestly do you think i would have flipped my wig if i had any sort of knowledge as i guess you did?

ive talked with many players from many servers that agreed with me. ...and more that didnt cause they "HEARD A RUMOR" that solars will fix themselves.

seriously...don't make me the db cause i called out the douchebaggery. i didnt get anything changed, i called I love puppies and it was recognized.

it wasnt my idea to make solars cost 35 ore per shot....it was toonces random unwanted idea.

so dont give me "...oh major you male chicken...you made me do stuff."

im the laziest chia pet in this game and i got hugged cause i wasnt privy to the private toonce-line like some of you.

i took him on his word (word is anything i see from dev's in the news) and ran with it. crazy hugging me.

I guess you missed this post:
Toonces wrote:Just so you know, when the patch comes, it will be implemented as such:

Colonies will not consume more ore than they used to. The number of shots fired will be reduced to something that causes the ore consumed by the cannon to be less than or equal to what it was consuming before. In this way the cannons can never use up all the ore on colony causing solar cannon "brown-outs".

If you want to allocate more ore and return the cannons to firing more bullets, you will have to visit the colony. Sorry if you have a big empire but from time to time a patch may affect colonies and that's the nature of the beast. Not trying to make your life tedious just trying to make a more exciting game where the cost of a 10-shot defense is higher.
