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?


Confirmed.
I logged out an hour ago with 0 energy. And when I login an hour later I'm sitting at 500 energy. So the energy won't go up after you get the free energy.

500e at random times of day?
One way to force us to catch the 500e boost, otherwise surprise surprise we lose out on a full energy bar.

Should of just gave us points for refills/5x500 energy credits.

Oh well, this is a business after-all...

I do think that the code system used in newsletters would have been a better, fairer way to provide the we're-sorry-E. However, personally I think nothing at all was necessary, but I certainly do appreciate getting the free E and donator days to compensate for the problems. Thank you Chedburn.

5 days ago, I watched 5 erotic dvds, took an ecstasy, overdosed. Then 4 days ago, watched 5 more erotic dvds, took an ecstasy, used my 150 job points.
Then this rollback happens, I get back the 150 job points, I watch 5 erotic dvds again, take an ecstasy, and .... overdose. And lose the free 500e too. grr. f**king stupid rollbacks.

I also think the idea of 500e is excellent, but also agree that it should be dispensable in other forms. For example, perhaps a Nerve boost? or Cash boost etc..

Only reason I say this is because I achieved the Single mug over 1,000,000 award and had taken me ages to find someone with enough dollar to rob. Additionally, I gained lots of thefts and a few auto-thefts the last few days and I wont be recompensated for that and it is number of crimes I'm really looking to get up at the moment.

This will just get "graved" like the last thread about this, but...the point is still VALID! If you really want to make good to your community, then reveal the times, so the energy can actually be used, not potentially lost! Until then, this is a hollow effort to put a bandaid on a dam leak!

Find an oil rig employee that has been offline for a few days, try to wait until they have earned at least a few extra million, since most people will carry around 10 million on them at any time, and hope for a crit mug. It's not a hard merit to achieve, and when you put in the time and effort, and maybe a little creativity, it's fairly easy to complete this again in less than one week.

Would it not also be an idea to refill people's Nerve Bar to max one per day over the next 5 days? after all people have lost crime exp as well as stats


This. Of course, I am upset about any step-back in gameplay. Particularly if I am not the cause of the step-back. But let's be honest, some of us really enjoy the crime perspective of the game (such as myself), so I am absolutely disappointed that nerve isn't being given back as well.

How about you don't assume you know what people will use it for, and stick to the facts. To us younger players, being able to set up or TRAINS and use our energy to TRAIN means a lot. Potentially getting 500 E when I am logging off for hours, well that doesn't fix anything for me. I am sure I am not alone in this.

Though I didn't lose a crime merit over this fiasco, I lost lots of progress on my Nerve bar. At 30 nerve, doing my best to get to 45 as quickly as possible.

While I'm upset the people that train 3 or 4 times a day got the same Energy gift as people that log in once a day for 3 minutes, I'm thoroughly annoyed that Nerve was ignored. How can such a glaring oversight be made???

Losing 4 days of work is frustrating, and the "Z0mG why so serious" posters, including admins, should remember that. So far as I am aware, noone is getting anything for free- we've already worked for it.

Compared to the other proposed solutions, giving 500e a day isn't terrible. However, I do have to agree with the starting point of this thread- that the random E times idea doesn't work. Those of us who spend our time flying, those of us who have jobs and aren't on all the time- risk losing out on this. (Notice: there is an understandable argument for "fliers are making the tradeoff anyway by being in the air, but bear in mind we still missed out on our normal training routines for those 4 days).

Here is my counter proposal: Use either the newsletter or the refill function available to newbies, but set a 24 hour limit-- a "cooldown"-- between uses. That way, everyone is still getting 500e a day. Or just use the newsletter and be done with it.

Why doesnt the 500 energy STACK with the rest of our energy? So basically I got 350 free energy instead of the full allotment... Getting hacked and screwed... Awesome... Not to mention lost nerve/crimes, stock payouts, and items. So basically we get reset 5 days and lose everything gained during that period. Reimbursed with 2500 energy that wipes out a full energy bar, so in reality you 1800 free energy as the rest you waited for... Totally Awesome... There has to be a better way to compensate your loyal consumer base.

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.



It still really isn't fair. Imagine Faction A has a lot of their members get the boost roughly the same time period, they then declare on factions b, c, and d who don't have their boost or already used up the energy. Faction A then wipes the floor and wins the war all because they had the 500 energy roughly at the same time?

Imagine even a 10 member faction having a 5,000 energy pool that is 200 hits that they can do right on the bat without using their refills on Vicodin. I don't really feel like it is fair because of rushing approach that some people may take. I mean 24 hours in a day, so if say you had 100 members in a faction that means at least 4 people per hour on average will get 500 energy.

I'd like to think that there are safe guards to prevent that sort of a situation, but I don't know if that is the case. I don't mean to show disrespect I'm just concerned about that aspect along with the line of it not working with stacking seems difficult for those who use stacking to have a reliable sort of stacking.

Indeed, I logged into 500e so I lost out on the 150 e that would have regenerated between 1:30 am local time - ~7:20 A.M local time. Sure, it would have been nearly on par for me like 2 or more months ago but that really doesn't really fit my play timeline anymore. Oh and no, I don't stay up at 1:30 A.M all the time, and I certainly wouldn't go to bed that late if I was getting on torn before 6 A.M local time.
