WARNING! Accuse with less than 3 stars of Evidence at your own Risk!

Sleuth Admin

Some corner cutters amongst you had discovered some safe ways to accuse suspects without first gathering 3 stars of evidence.

In sticking with the original intent of the game (not to mention our hitherto faultless game documentation), it is no longer safe to ever accuse with only 1 or 2 stars.

Good luck out there...

and Happy Sleuthing.

@Lu:

I like your idea too as I always hated to reset my case with special mission in order to do AI cases.

Disgraced Doctor: Caine
Disgraced Doctor: Caine

Once player reaches 100,000 xp, lowest case offered would be Intermediate

Once player reaches 500,000 xp, lowest case offered would be Very Hard

Once player reaches 1,000,000 xp, lowest case offered would be Incredibly Hard

Once player reaches 5,000,000 xp, lowest case offered would be Stupendously Hard

Once player reaches 10,000,000 xp, lowest case offered would be Ridiculously Hard

Once player reaches above 20,000,000 xp, only Almost Impossible Case level is offered

Maybe Admin will allow us to vote on this matter.

@Chen: I believe you and Disgraced Doctor Caine are the same person

Yes, in fact when you do a search on ": Caine", there will be:

Disgraced Doctor: Caine
Reformed Burglar: Caine
Retired Lawyer: Caine
FIR: Caine
DPD: Caine
MD: Caine

They're all belongs to me, as I created them right after Achievement Prizes been released in order to find out which background gets which prizes for achievements. So far, I only have time to login DD: Caine once in a while to test out the new rules after 3 stars Warning been implemented and to understand the game better in a lower xp point of view. Actually I think all players need to try out other backgrounds as well before realizing which background suit them best. ^_^

please lets leave the game as it is it is difficult enough now. this game was supposed to be easier than noir otherwise have it named "noir the second"

How is changing cases offered to those with more game expereince making it harder? One would figure the more expereince you have the more skill points you have earned. The better your skill set is to routinely do cases at a higher level.

question what if you have two fake alibis and no other evidence period? then what do you do? i ran out of charm, intimidation, and always run low on my gifts. there were no witness evidence, and only one star of physical against two fakes. and to top it all off it was a favor case and i had to quit. thanks for the help hugs CJ

You missed PE at CS or maybe a matching weapon to a fake. You will always get 3 stars. You can always get a int/charm glove or ring to boost your manipulations.

Also what case level? you may have missed a yellow and not located all suspects to get prove from.

All cases are solvable sometimes just not as profitable as others.

Interesting discussion, but here's a couple of points to think about;

1) By restriciting the types of cases offered (at whatever level) you will be restricting a player's choice. For subscribed players, limiting their choice effectively devalues their subscription.

2) Many players have a limited amount of time they can devote to Sleuth. For these players, the only way they can solve three favour cases a day is to quickly do beginner cases between each favour case.

One potential compromise could be for your initial case-giver (Desk Sgt or Reporter) to always offer at least one beginner case, while at the same time your highest level case-givers will always offer at least one case at your highest level. That way Joseph would always be offered at least one AI case, and people with limited time would always be able to do beginner cases between favours.
