Suggestion Box

Like is says: a Suggestion Box.

[be polite, I meant GAME suggestions!]

That's not to say we haven't got lots of ideas for things in the pipelines, but I'm sure there are lots of players out there who have lots of ideas about how to make the game a better / more interesting one, and we're always interested to hear what those ideas are.

Especially if they're explained clearly and constructively. :)

Who knows maybe you'll see an idea of yours up in lights :)

I dont wish to prevent agencies from hunts and I will be sure to pass along you are the one who instructed ID and IF how to do so.

Well I have not been the only person who has seen this and is upset about it.

There will be more messages sent that this practice needs to stop. I may have challenged hunts but I did not attempt to lock up or limit hunts available for agency to do or make ti to benifit me or others I choose. Which you and Blue have benifited from I may say so I also will remember that

You got those hunts becasue they where prevented from being generated at 2pm. UMMMMMMMM to save for a time you are one I wonder???????

1) You accused Ivory Fox and Ivory Draigh of blocking hunts because they didn't finished hunts until after 6am, 2pm, 10pm.
2) You blamed me for not noticing how IF and ID does their hunts because its known that I don't play on weekends.
3) You accused my agency to benefit from their blocking hunts.
4) You accused me of instructing IF and ID to block hunts.

There, isn't that clear enough that you're accusing and then trying to cover it up?

I have to say that we do not and never have blocked hunts on purpose.
This is due to the time differences.
Two in our agency are 7-8 hours ahead of server time, which means that when I get up in the morning server time is 10PM, and I try to get the favour required by doing SM just before I have to leave for work.
One agent is 8 hours ahead of me, so at 2 PM it will be 6PM for that agent, just returning home from work.
There is only one agent who has about the same times as server time.
The rest, as you can see at their profile don't have enough standings with a lot of townies, so that leaves just a few agents taking turns in hunts.
We do have to sleep and work sometimes, so that's also why we can't finish as fast as we would like to.
As for me, due to circumstances I can't be on as much as I would like to, and did before, so when the hunt is still on, I try to get the favour by doing just SM, and not SD's.
Not everyone feels comfortable doing SD, so we rather wait and hope one of the others will comeonline to do the next step.

I really hope this is enough for anyone to realize that we are not, never did and never will block hunts for other agency's.
If you really had monitored ID you would have noticed this yourself.

I'm kind of half-reading this, as I tend not to read any PM's posted on Boards. Posting Private M's publicly is one of my pet hates.

That aside.

Could have saved myself and Ben some time introducing some seasonal flavour and just let you guys amuse yourself slugging it out. Anyway I'll be asking a few people what this all means...

... don't call me I'll call you!

Heh I now kinda understand the hunt-blocking thing. Agencies dominating hunts is no big deal. There's a balance there somewhere to be had between well organized agencies dominating hunts - which is fair enough,they ARE meant to be competitive not organized turn taking events organized over scones and herbal tea - versus a game mechanic that can be manipulated to some agencies advantage/disadvantage.

I would reiterate that treasure hunts are meant to be competitive, but over my hols I will explore with Ben whether he wants to change anything about this mechanic.

In the meantime as far as I'm concerned this is just a case of clever people doing clever things - whether it's ethical or not is purely conjecture.

Blocking all 3 hunts (which hasn't happened yet admittedly) is hardly competitive. The only time hunts are competitive is when we all start one at the same time which we do once a month. John Bear won last time, congrats John.

okay guess my question was overlooked admidst all the well you know...... i wonder ben and squirrel if there may be an alternative way of getting challenge points , instead of hunting or showdowns, or if not an alternative way of getting some goodies to help us with the cases thanks cj
