My ally mate RyaRaineS is a bit of a MMORPG buff, and he in particular tracks the players who are doing best in terms of expos
So he noticed these 2 accounts some time back, because they were destroying 10's of billions of pirate ships in a single fight while only losing 31 points (1 PF)
On top of both accounts being only a few weeks old at the time
It stumped us for quite a while how you could lose so little, based on other fights with slightly higher losses it became clear they are using RIPs
In order to lose 0 rips in fights with hundreds/thousands of rips, the weapons tech needs to be between 0-3, so that pirates end up with 0 weapons tech.
Which brings me to the point of this thread.
This Murker .ru account went from being created to 958M points (rank 3) on the first day
This Xanthus.org account went from long v mode at 10k points to 500M points (rank 2) in two days.
The .RU account is now rank 1 world wide after 7 weeks
The Xanthus acc is now rank 1 Xanthus and 23 world wide after 6 weeks.
In both cases the only account in the unis that could have fronted the amount of resources needed were the previous rank 1 accounts
No normal player creates a new account in a fresh uni and doesn't research weapon tech
Nor would either account have been allowed to grow and surpass the previous rank 1's, let alone be pulled with hundreds of billions of res by them
GF is working on a merge/merge item? Whats the fucking point?
We got guys running multis and using MP to push. We got guys running expos 24/7 and selling via MP to higher rank guys
We have blatant back and forth MP selling that only benefits the higher ranked players
We have the AI experiment that is Leda
Where the number 1 .org solo hit was made in a universe 7 months old, where a player instad 350B fleet after 2 months of v mode saving to make a hit
Who can legitimately explain a player going from 250M points to 510M (after losing his 250M in the hit) in 10 days while never staying out of v mode
And on top of it all we have pirate expos.
Which are exponential in nature, to the point rank 1 accounts are making multis (allegedly ) to take advantage of the mechanics and to spend res faster.
It has been 8 Months now since 7.0 launched and people started pushing with the MP
It has been ~7 months since people started catching on and complaining about expo DFs
I make 3+ months mine production a day from pirate DFs
PVE is so profitable I make more in a few pirate fights than any top ten in Europa has made
Even if GF fixes pirate DFs today, it is already too late
Due to the exponential nature of things, rank 1 accounts are farther ahead than ever, the top 10 are further ahead of the top 20 than ever
The sad thing is I don't even know why I am writing this book.
Bots are seemingly more prevalent than at any point in Ogame history
Multi accounts don't seem to get punished
If we file tickets we are told MP trades are legal, or "I'll look into it" and nothing changes
You complain about it on the board the Mods will warn you for off topic or cheating accusations
I don't play any of these unis, I just watch this ridiculous crap happen week after week with nothing being done.
Does GF listen to the COMAs? Do the COMAs listen to the communities?
