Issuing the energy boosts randomly is far from fair and subjects players to the arbitrariness of pseudo random calculation.

For some people it will come at a great time and they will unfairly benefit relative to others, and then there will be a similar sized group of people where the energy boost comes at a bad time and they will be unfairly penalised relative to others.

This way it's fair for everyone on all time zones.


Not really. I appreciate the idea of it being fair. But it's not. What if someone is stacking then get the boost = more wasted energy


Don't stack your energy, fixed.


Yes, dont stack your energy, dont chain and gain respect, make sure your energy is always empty and wait around for your free energy to eventually show up..yea..fixed. lol



Don't do anything but rather wait around for a random time for a chunk of E that doesn't come close to making up all the time and E spent chaining over the past week. That's something that has been lost in this issue. How many factions have lost a shitload of respect and had all the time and effort they put in chaining wiped away. I thought that Chedders had a better backup system in place after the big crash from a few years back. Was that all smoke and mirrors?


Hey, what kinda party is this? There's NO booze and only one hooker???

If your 500E arrives as you are, say, flying to SA or just logging off for the night, will it continue to fill until it reaches 650?

Or does the free E just 'fill the tank' and stop you accruing any more while you are asleep / flying?

In 5 days i would have taken;-

24 full bars of energy
5 refills
17 xanex

I don't think random 500 E is fantastic either. Think a persons age should go back 4 or 5 days as well.

We started chaining at almost exactly the point Ched has reset us to. We're a lot of victories and respect down.

Why complain?

Accept the fact we are being given free energy! I am surprised we are actually receiving this at all. What do you want? 5000E instantly? Greedy shits.


Please read the rest of the posts, TRY to understand what 500E a day means to someone who is already at 900E.

Why was birth control not invented/used when you were conceived?

Free E is a poor recompense. The best compensation should be Ched and team actually trying to log check everything and putting it back 'as it was' reference consumer interactions in the game.

IE fix it to how it was. Lose the hackers intrusion then reinstate where we actually were in the game.

What worries me is how Ched views 'stacking E' in a flawed war system. I am led to believe Ched treasures Torn due to it's war interaction.

Well, I for one am pissed at this rollback - and we WERE interacting with the war system.


You have a reason to be mad.

Warring - you beat HT, beating FTW.. and then you have to start all over from scratch. I understand.
Whereas energy spent/stats lost can be regained plus with 2500E given, alot quicker.

Based on the last time he gave us 500 E just this weekend, you stop gaining because it is full. So for those of us who were sleeping, instead of logging in to see 650 we had less because it stops growing. This is why some of us are rather upset by it.

I am at 500e. Apparently I must have been at 0 when he reset. That means we were probably mid chain. My counter isn't moving. He hasn't recoded Energy just for these 5 days. Anything above 150 stops the clock.

Jesus. NO, they cannot. I popped xanax as was back to 150E. Now under xanax for 6hrs. Cannot take vic.

Oh, and do you think HT will be ready this time?

Frig me, think about our losses.

No element of surprise etc.

As Ched says tho, stacking is bad. I am still shocked by this.

Fair? Well i still have the gaming age as if i had played those 4 days, so fair, for me, would be my average 3x 150e (regular energy) + 3x 250e (xanax) = 1200e per day... Now that would be the amount i've would of spent aproximatly (probably more).

Either that or remove us the "4 days" we havent played. Many players, well many young players have personal goals that involve their age, and this is quite a mess on that matter.

I don't think I've seen any explanation why it's so far back. I can't see a link between someone viewing 20% of your data and no backups for 4 days. There must be something more.

Honestly, my point I am making is exactly that. It would be more fair to not give anyone anything than unfairly compensate people at random intervals.

I think this post says it best:
By SourRon [852964]
Issuing the energy boosts randomly is far from fair and subjects players to the arbitrariness of pseudo random calculation.

For some people it will come at a great time and they will unfairly benefit relative to others, and then there will be a similar sized group of people where the energy boost comes at a bad time and they will be unfairly penalised relative to others.


Pretty much says it all. If someone is offline for a few hours when the boost comes, they are missing out on all their E regen, while those that were online when it came are all fine and dandy. Random times only make the situation more frustrating because now someone could coincidentally get all 5 boosts minutes after they logged out and lose out on hundreds of energy regen because of it.

I'd rather see a system like the newsletter were we get to choose when to refill that way everyone is compensated fairly. In my eyes, either do it so everyone benefits equally or don't do it at all.

The way it is now is like going fishing and giving one of your kids a worm and the other one a bare hook. They both get to throw their line in the water but is it really fair?
