First day i got 500e (should have been higher as i wasnt at 0e), second day i logged in to 900e (stacked xanax +500), so maybe there was a bug on the first day or something but today it was fine for me. Will see how day 3 goes.

PS: Is everyone receiving their e at different times? Or is it like we all get it at the same random time?

It's different times.

Brrrrr - wrong, it just takes a few minutes for the boosts to be sent to everyone.

a player will only benefit 100% from the infusions if they are logged in, actively online and have less than 500E at each of the times of the random 500E infusions... if they are not online, they will be compensated with 500E minus the natural gains that the player would normally receive whilst offline (ie 5E per 10 mins for donator and 5E per 15 mins for non-donator)

More Detail:

if a player is online and they have less than 500E at the time of the infusion, that player will receive the 500E infusion up to a maximum of 1k E.

if the player is not online at the time of the 500E infusion, the normal gains that that player would have received whilst being offline are subtracted from the infusion amount.

if a player has zero E at the time they log out, they will log back on to find they have 500E, but they will not have received their normal E gains that they should have earned whilst they were offline.

It has been claimed that each qualifying player for the infusions will receive 2,500E over the course of 5 days (5/5 500E infusions). yet if a player is offline at each of these infusion times for an excess of 5 hours, the amount of compensation drops massively to just 1,750E compensation. A player will only gain the full 2,500E compensation if they are actively online at each of the random 500E distribution times and only then if they currently have less than/up to 500E at the distribution times.

This is a huge difference for what each player will receive in way of compensation... if a player uses a script to auto refresh their torn page, they will benefit... if they stay awake for the full 5 days, they will benefit... for everyone else who logs off occasionally, they will receive anywhere between 1,750E and 2,500E... not all players will gain the claimed 2,500E compensation E.

To clarify:

a player logs off with zero E and logs in again 5 hours later when their E can be expected to be maximum 150E... if the infusion happens within this time period, that player will not receive their normal 150E gains plus the 500E infusion... they will login to find that the infusion has prevented their normal gains being awarded to them (ie, they will have just 500E, which is 5 hours of E gains that has not been awarded to them).

a player logs off with say 100E for 5 hours... that player will log back in to find 600E available to them, but they will not have gained anything from what they should have received via normal play.

There is a pretense that each qualifying player will receive 500E each day for 5 days and this is not true at all, unless, as I mentioned, they either stay actively online, or they use scripts to auto refresh their torn page.

Although the coders might hate me saying this (as the auto log-outs suggest that they prefer quieter servers sometimes), I suggest if you want to take full advantage of the 500E infusions, get yourself an auto refresh script and use it... because if you don't, you will not gain an extra 2.5k E... you would only gain 1,750E...

Maybe the coders will change the way this compensation is distributed to allow fairness to all players who qualified... but I somehow doubt that the way this compensation is distributed will change on this occasion, and rightly or wrongly, script users will gain the most, while normal players who don't use them will lose out.

I knew something was wrong with MCS as well. There were way too many occasions when I wake up with 360e instead of 500 or sth

I almost read this but then looked and it was to long jeezz. Why do people think someone would want to read all that

On topic I get a full 350 energy every day :/ I mean come on a little over 2 energy bars will never make up for the 4 energy bars, 3 Xanax a day, and refills for 3 days I don't see it as getting 500 energy as my energy stops building once the 500 is given.

Sorry Torn this sucks!

So far yes, but then again i was online on both times. (working in front of a PC do have it's perks in online gaming.

I bet i will be screwed a couple of times though, as its likely that with the time rotation 1 or 2 while happen on my sleep time. But till then cant complain.

I will still complain however on how small the bonus is when compared with the amounts of energy i would have used in those four days. And i blame it on the atacking bastards that would use it to get benefits on their current wars. (still that could be minimized with a lower amount but for far more then 5 days).

first day i had 150 e and was about to use it when i got bumbed up to 650. second day i got off when i had 30 e and when i woke up i had 530 e. so i checked what time it happened and it was like 3 hours after i got off. so i should of had like 580-600. so it goes from your last log in. so either use it all or save it all.

i'm not sure why it's like this exactly, but from my understanding, the way it works is that you don't exactly get 5 energy every 10/15 minutes when you're offline. it's more like it adds on what you missed when you log on. so if you log off with 0 energy and it adds the 500, no matter now long you've been offline, you'll log on to 500 energy. if you had logged off with 5 energy, you'll log on to 505 energy.

again, i'm not exactly sure why it's like this. maybe because if everyone received there energy whether online or not, then it would put too much unneeded stress on the servers?


This is exactly how it would have been programmed.
Everything on the backend would be timestamps. current e at <pastTime>, compared to <currentTime>

The way they would have to fix this is to apply the 500E AFTER they do the energy calculation.


it is a known fact that this is how torn's E is calculated and i'm not sure where i read it but it's from ched himself or some staffer.
it doesn't calculate your energy at any given time unless you are "alive"
again , this discussion was about MCS's energy boosts and i don't know how it is now ... usually the MCS gives me 450 E but i never logout with 150 E so it must have been fixed ...
tell ched to fix this too

yeah i agree, total bollox, if we are told we'd get an "extra" 500 E a day, thats what we should get, not 350.

I got my 500e when I was on 95, and got 595. It might be that you have to be online to get the full 500e. I got the full 500 the first day, and was online. Got only 350e added onto a full e bar the second day, and was offline.
