- Why play - ??



I was looking trough pay pr play universe, and it seems like all gallaxies are full..
And those C23 galls are where they put new players in...
Why would I pay for my planet and end up in a gallaxies where there are less active people than the one I am in now, and less score, and be a constand farm for the players in lower clusters???

Not that I expect to be in nr 1 galla, but no way I want to pay to be a easy target with 500 roids in a gallaxy with 300K points...

Dino

Re: - Why play - ??

or you could pay for 9 others and activate at same time, hoping you all get in same gal ))
Dunno if they do it that way tho, or whether they place one planet in one gal, and the next planet in the next gal

You know the mantis ledgends? thats where it all started. It was fighting of this black bird, it was only a 10th of the birds size. it was a very valued insect. and thats why the technique needs a brave man and a strong one, who isnt afraid of birds.

He doesn't control how active people are, but he sabotages the ability of the players to do anything about it (by making exile costs too high, by not deleting inactive planets in a timely fashion (or ever, in many cases), etc). This has the effect of turning the game into an expensive lottery. Who wants to pay $15 just for the chance to land in a semi-active galaxy? :sad:

Exile is something provided and is made expenseive so you can't do it all the time just because you don't like your gal, thats not the purpose of exile. And inactives in the paid universe probably won't be deleted as they paid to play the game so how do we justify deleting their account when they paid for an entire round.

No one's arguing for free exiles, but there has to be a balance between the cost of exile and the probability of landing in a galaxy that has at least a few active players.

You justify it on the grounds that they're not playing. But if you really want to keep accounts for players who aren't using them then fine--move inactives to special galaxies and don't allow exiles and newbies to land there. There's no justification for allowing inactives to ruin the game for those who want to play; nor for forcing active galaxies to pass them around. But hey, if you're happy with the way exiling works atm then stick your head back in the sand.
