Title: where are these guys coming from????
Post by: SNAFU on September 12, 2013, 04:45:52 PM
Ok.  I'm getting pissed.  These guys in TCB01 are coming out of nowhere leaping up the board like its easy.  What gives? I'm an everyday player grinding it out and suddenly poof!  I'm leaped over like I'm standing still????

BS baby.  BS.

is this legal?  if that's the case then we're looking at Super Power clans vs. 3rd world baby clans. >:(

The leader is attacking with many thousand zeus and the followers are racking up DSP with single probes.  I asked, it is legal.


One of them went from (n) to (N) relative to me overnight due to this probe riding.

Post by: Matt H on September 12, 2013, 07:48:43 PM
Gaining DSP has no bearing on whether a player is (n) or (N) to you. RSP is the only thing that determines that.
Title: Re: where are these guys coming from????
Post by: YNC(SS) Retired on September 12, 2013, 08:00:50 PM
Yes my alliance members have been getting Probe rides from me. It is not illegal. My alliance members will surpass most of you in RSP in the next several months and be "N" to most of you. My alliance members will not be hunting active members. TCBO1 is a NPC hunting alliance. If you leave us alone we will leave you alone. Simple as that. If you want to grow and hunt NPC contact me. I was getting board with the game and did not want to quit so I decided to run my own alliance.

Post by: commander ABаб on September 12, 2013, 08:06:24 PM
Matt, his RSP is 1270. Mine is 294.  He is N to me solely due to DSP and overall rank.

Matt, his RSP is 1270. Mine is 294.  He is N to me solely due to DSP and overall rank.

You are completely incorrect. Newbie status is based ONLY on RSP.

Your RSP is 11,639,698. The player ranked 1,270 has 659,714 RSP. That makes him (n) to you because you have 1000% more RSP than him.

However, it appears the N and n are displaying backwards currently.
Title: Re: where are these guys coming from????
Post by: SNAFU on September 12, 2013, 08:31:46 PM
well i hope your guys know that.  you'll crush me in a heartbeat but i'll beat up your boots with a quickness.  they can get all the DSP they want but until their fleets are right they're still easy pickings.  i don't know.

i don't see this ending well.  all it'll take is one of your guys getting cocky and its the entire galaxy against you.
Title: Re: where are these guys coming from????
Post by: commander ABаб on September 12, 2013, 08:39:15 PM
Ok Matt, I was listing the RSP Rank and not the points.  But he is showing N to me.
Title: Re: where are these guys coming from????
Post by: YNC(SS) Retired on September 12, 2013, 08:41:16 PM
All my guys will be in G25 so unless you have a planet in G25 you will have nothing to worry about. Also my guys will not be managing RSP so they will eventually be "N" to you and will not be a threat. It will just take time for that to happen.
Title: Re: where are these guys coming from????
Post by: SNAFU on September 12, 2013, 09:35:12 PM
YNC (SS).

this is your boy Commander tale  he went from 58 to 52 in a matter of one hour...
#52    #1,270    #1,504    #447    #1,553    #397    #39

those are his numbers.  the guy is weak as a kitten.  now considering the fact that he listed as being stronger than me, why is it wrong for me to go after him?  as a matter of fact that is going to be the case for most of your guys for a while.  hit them now while they're weak and benefit from their posted strength to increase ourselves.

you're too big to hit me and your guys are getting inflated strength.

sounds like feeding time.
Title: Re: where are these guys coming from????
Post by: YNC(SS) Retired on September 12, 2013, 10:21:34 PM
SNAFU - yes his rank is inflated becasue of the free DSP I have given him and yes he would be an easy target right know becasue his fleet is small. Wait in 2 months and see his RSP and fleet. He will not be an easy target. You can't attack something when they are "N" to you. If you want to waste your time trying to get him know go ahead it is part of the game. I will help him rebuild if you get him.
Title: Re: where are these guys coming from????
Post by: SNAFU on September 12, 2013, 10:42:50 PM
hey Sub Driver...this seems shady to me.  i'm a grunt so hitting your boots will be no problem.  you rebuild him then i feed off him again.

i do know this.  i can't be the only person looking at this saying WTF.  if i can get some other clans to band together then this game is about to get beyond interesting.

That would be interesting SNAFU if you got some clans together to take on YNC(SS) and his guys. It would be fun to watch thats for sure.

Matt, I just wanted to ask if the n and N are displaying backwards or if the coder just compared RSP for newbie protection but then used overall rank to show the n or N markers?
Title: Re: where are these guys coming from????

That must be the case qwerty, because I could still transport to the player in question if I wished, or at least it wasn't greyed out.

Post by: SNAFU on September 13, 2013, 09:22:22 PM
i've sent out feelers to some of the other big clans.  hopefully we can get a few together and launch an interstellar war.

this will be wild if the clans go for it.  we just need to get BFG to approve it and this should be intense.  can you imagine 100+players going after YNC(SS)?  the crazy thing is he might be able to repulse the attack!

if BFG lets us do it this could be fun.

Post by: YNC(SS) Retired on September 13, 2013, 09:55:39 PM
SNAFU - You and everyone else in the game are going to have to start building to get me. I am "N" to everyone in the game accept for Storm. Plus you will have to move out to G25 or tie up all your ships on a Titan for several months. I have over 350k Zeus and I have the resources to build another 450K if I want. Plus I have 2.5m Proms that would love to bust a Titan. So bring it on GRUNT..........
Title: Re: where are these guys coming from????
Post by: SNAFU on September 13, 2013, 11:19:26 PM
but if allowed we could declare war on your clan and that would make you targetable.  additionally and the best part of the plan it would make your clan members vulnerable to attack.

they're leaping up the board but if we declared war, got enough clans together and went after the small fish, you'd be drained dry just trying to maintain them.

I WILL BRING! 
Title: Re: where are these guys coming from????
Post by: SNAFU on September 13, 2013, 11:51:27 PM
just a note to every one that thinks i'm crazy because YNC is so powerful i ask you to consider this.

first when you're fighting someone that is bigger, stronger and more advanced what do you do (this is a common question asked in SNCO Academies and at Basic School) the answer.  you find a vulnerability and you keep hitting it until they either solve the problem or they back away.

second thing to consider is this.  when fighting a bigger, stronger more advanced power, what can be accomplished.  the answer.  at best an expenditure of resources so great as to make further warfare by the bigger stronger power to be unprofitable.  the next thing is that no one is perfect.  with the proper planning, oganization etc...you're talking about round the clock attacks.  YNC would be able to withstand it but his clan couldn't.

just throwing it out there.
Title: Re: where are these guys coming from????
Post by: SNAFU on September 13, 2013, 11:56:05 PM
oh and remember Commander Tale from yesterday? he wasn't even in the top 100 before yesterday, then yesterday afternoon he was 58 and now.  one day later.  the guy is ranked number 40.  the computer lists him as too big for me to hit, but if we could declare war and make him hittable check out his numbers!
Overall    Building    Fleet    Defense    Research    Crew    DSP
#40    #1,261    #1,508    #445    #1,541    #358    #34

this guy is ripe for the pickings.  i don't know his foundry level but it can't be high which means there is a window.

now all we need is for BFG to allow the warfare and this gets good.
Title: Re: where are these guys coming from????
Post by: YNC(SS) Retired on September 14, 2013, 12:03:54 AM
SNAFU I think you are mistaken I do not think I would be attackable because we are at war.

Matt can you verify this.

As for Commander Tale like I said before yes his rank is inflated because of the free DSP. Give it 2 months and is RSP will be higher than yours. Besides you cant attack someones ships if they are deployed attacking a NPC.
Title: Re: where are these guys coming from????
Post by: commander sharma on September 14, 2013, 12:05:56 AM
Okay SNAFU. You have forgotten one thing. What about people who instead of allying with you would ally with YNC(SS) and his guys. I am not saying me and my guys at ALPHA are. But still others could. For you to pull this off I think you would need the top 2# ranked through 10# ranked players in SDE to help you. That would be hard to convince them.

Title: Re: where are these guys coming from????
Post by: Commander Satire on September 15, 2013, 12:57:48 AM
Why all this concern.  We have seen massive change in the game and YNS formed his Alliance and created his strategy for the current game.  As for the ride along, than all of us have done that for our fellow members and new players. 

With the increase of these NPC's, the only force needed is now the Zeus.  The tech levels increasing and the Defenses also in the NPC's.  I can only increase 1 of my techs in 1000 hours and the level the NPC's are around my planets are 21 where they were 19 a week ago.  Soon the levels will be out of reach and I can only wonder what they look like for YNS? 

My hat is off to YNS to have a plan and sticking with it.  If this continues, I will leave the game.  A game is suppose to be fun and now it is causing frustrations and I will not take frustrations in a game when life has enough to go around for all of us.

Post by: SNAFU on September 17, 2013, 09:43:46 PM
ok.  you're another one of those guys that can't see past the end of his nose.  these guys get super powered increase in strength and then suddenly decide to go break off and start there own clans.  or better yet they go and support their old clans in wars against others.

artificially powered players that are roaming all over the universe and there is nothing you can do to balance the scales.  no scientist or tech, no tactician or weapon upgrade.

nothing.

your strategy is different but who cares?  anyone with common sense.  i see you're one of those go along to get along clowns.

Sorry, SNAFU, you're dead wrong. I see these players as future targets. I just wish BFG would base newbie protection on overall points rather than RSP. That would go a long way toward fixing the issue.
Title: Re: where are these guys coming from????
Post by: RabidDog on September 18, 2013, 08:10:30 AM
Just a little thought for you, I just joined TCBO1 a few days ago even before I joined I could crush 90%+ of the players in the game if you read the thread on what we are doing we are not interested in PvP just seeing how big we can make the NPC's get, however inside 3 months we will not be touchable as an alliance. But if you think that is unfair you and your alliance can try the same where you are located.

Post by: ☠GARTH☠ on September 18, 2013, 08:14:05 PM
It's become a joke but it's no use arguing about it I tried to give my 2 cents worth in a logical way. Theres not much left to this game so I would spend hours trying to gain a little ground on the player above me. Then a couple of weeks ago someone not even on the radar blows past me and is (N) to be but greener than green. Then another. Then another. #1 player is muscle bound and is bored so he has become the "Reverend Jim Jones" of SDE. Legal? maybe. Within the spirit of the game? Not hardly. One player has the power to control the leader board and I don't think this was the way the game was meant to be played. The removal of limits on NPCs has created this disaster. a #500 ranked player has no business being able to attack any #5 ranked NPC. Npcs are fun but once you hit 1 billion in RSP they should be few and far between. Bring back the limits on npcs and make them tough but not impossible to hit. Unfortunately it may be too late to correct this fiasco.

WoW a couple of you must be really small in RL maybe its time to move out of Mommies house and grow up. Its nice to see a player's crying about a game. Since you seem to want to insult me that is fine so here is one for you, 001 must be your IQ since your comment matches one of a complete Moron as you know nothing of me or what occurred in my RL, to give the RabidDog account away come back and be given this one, which was ranked 258, so before opening your mouth, try and use that little ball of goo between your ears and not make assumptions about someone you know nothing about.

Post by: yellowdock on September 21, 2013, 08:32:25 PM
This is a very interesting Alliance that you have put together. I cant blame you YNCC, If i were in the top spot i would be kind of bored as well. Might as well start your own alliance. As for PVP vs NPCs, Once upon a time i was really excited about PVP but with the players who use script alerts, it has really made it unfair and downright unprofitable to attack players that stalk the game. Many players try and emphasize that attacking "real players" carries a premium merit but i dont see the logic in it. For instance, noone ever attacks me and i always leave ships out ;-)
  If the above is any barometer then PVP is all but dead in this uni (SDE). Perhaps the good pvp players simply only attack predictable players who only log on at certain times of day. I cant be sure why but The NPCs are so rich right now, there is very little need to send titans on lengthy dispatches tying up your fleet spots and fleet for hours on end. 
 Rabid dog, dont let your feelings get too hurt. Hank was only mentioning that you were with Ronin for a day then you left abruptly without warning. It was kind of a rude exit. Even you must admit that.

I know nothing of the previous account holder this is the third alliance I have been in the First which no longer exists was ORA , Murder Inc, and now TCBO1. So when others start attacking me for things I have no knowledge about I take issue with that. Accounts do go from player to player and so I assume nothing where that is concerned. But if the previous account holder of my account did that I would wonder why, it could be a rude thing or something else as I do not know the story.

As a point of reference..i have joined tcbo1....

i killed off 90% of my attack fleet  to switch to the new tactics.... so my rsp nose dived drastically, just the same as it has with planet drops..... so it will take me a while to get my rsp back up to where it was... however i get the bonus of a couple of probe rides......my first 80m of dsp was earned on small fry as i was happy just twiddling along...... however boredom sets in...

so this to me is a rebuild...

does this make me a lesser player? No it doesn`t....

hydro costs of running massive prom fleets to kill of stuff was becoming insane.......  and spending a billion in hydro in just a couple of launches was becoming a joke... hence the new direction and gamestyle change... don`t for one minute think that this will make me stop frsing because it wont... been around the game too long to start not frsing now... its in the blood...

Well, here comes the latest one to break the 100 barrier... RogueSquadren, who is currently ranked at #95‎.  He has a total score of 127,604,428.  Of that, his DSP is 127,540,798.  When you take out the DSP, he has a total score of 63,630.  He has a whopping total of 1,526 ships combined and the score of 63,630 should place him somewhere around the 1,729 position (where he belongs).

scotius prime I had thought of the massive build times. That is why before anyone starts building ships they level up there foundries to level 12 and shipyards to level 15. They can make a Zeus in less than a 3 mins.

WHERE ARE ALL THE PEOPLE THAT SAID NO BIG DEAL WITH THESE INFLATED PUPPETS RUSHING UP THE BOARD?????

i guess we won't hear any complaints until the people in the top ten get displaced but its pretty sad to see people that i've been competing with for position suddenly stop playing as much and are now plumetting down in rank.

i'm gonna give it a while longer but if YNCC and his little kitty keep altering the game to fit there individual needs then i need to bail.

first i was frustrated, Blue Frog fixed that, but now i'm pissed....and its the players that are doing it and not the BFG....

oh and sidenote...when the game went through its hiccups YNCC was one of the biggest complainers----now HE IS THE CAUSE OF THE PAIN.
Title: Re: where are these guys coming from????
Post by: YNC(SS) Retired on September 27, 2013, 01:48:39 PM
SNAFU you are 100% correct I was one of the loudest complainers the first couple of times the defenses increased on the NPC. Did BFG fix my issue. No, I adjusted and continued to play. The same thing happens every time the defenses change on the NPCs. Players complain, BFG does nothing and people adjust. Some  leave most stay.

I would recommend that you either leave the game or shut up. These personal attacks at other players that you and the few others keep making are only upsetting yourselves and maybe Devil Spawn a little. He has gotten over the attacks hopefully you guys have. I am truly surprised BFG has not closed these 2 threads because of the personal attacks. They have closed them for less.

It was not a recommendation. It was your own suggestion. I just reworded it and added shut up because you used it toward someone else.

entering this discussion. you messed it up some though YNC. fe, theres one of your guys knocking at my #door right now, id hit him but hes (n) to me. im sure he has many ships at #1.427. i can understand your point of view, hence your move, but what do you hope to achieve here? 50 bad dudes that can kill many npc? youll still be nr 1 and your dudettes will be 2-50. point served?

he doesn't get it and he doesn't care.

everyone below him is clawing and trying there best to get up the leader board.  everyone is trying to gain rank.

those are a couple of the payoffs of this game.

YNCC is number one.  he has the best tech etc...but instead of dealing with an issue of having to hunt for targets big enough for him to hit, and he should have to hunt for them with as big a lead as he has over the 2nd ranked player on the board...he instead wimps out and decides to mess with the game play by finding a technicality in the game and blowing a hole through it.

all the "go along to get along artist" that say that he should play the game his own way are ignoring the realities.

remember when you were a cadet?  remember when you got your first promotion?  remember when you got into a competition with another player and tried to race him to the a higher ranking?

YNCC doesn't because no one can touch him.  so what does he do?  he jacks things up for the rest of us....and worse, his little kitten should be slaughtered but they're inflated beyond belief so that even though they have tiny fleets and weak tech you can't get them because their DSP is so high.

Blue Frog Gaming needs to take that one stat out of the rankings and i'll be feeding on his team mates for days.  lose DSP and i'll raid everyone of those little puppies.

How does he 'jacks things up for the rest of us'? If you remove the leaderboard from the game, nothing else about the game changes by they way he plays. It really has no impact on you except your numerical ranking on the leaderboard.

SNAFU - you should really stop talking. You do not even understand the game. DSP has no bearing on who you can and can not attack. RSP does. If someone is "N" to you their RSP is 10X more than yours. If someone is "n" to you that means your RSP is 10X more than their's. Your RSP is 23M which means the top 50 on the RSP leader board is "N" to you. 7 out of 11 of TCBO1 is "N" to you and the rest will be soon.

Although there has not been very much response to my poll I am really starting to believe that there are very few players bothered by my alliance and the way I chose to run it. You should really stop showing everyone you ignorance and just worry about your own game.

You might not be getting the response to your poll that you wanted because the players have stopped caring about the game and are leaving in droves. 

T D has been in v mode for weeks.

Pedro Gaia
Tralsk
Waste Management
Duke Atreides

Are all gone.

KarDack
Commander 3398454
seraph
Smurfinator
Commander Mota Wolf
Rick Miller
Hades

Are all inactive.

Just to name a few...

Livermint is in an extended v mode after going inactive and losing his entire fleet.

Sparrowhawk and Shipdoctor no longer have much of a fleet.

So, is it your fault YNC?  I don't know.  But, perhaps all of those players that might have responded with a "yes" are on the way out or have already left.

"shut up or quit"?  Maybe.

Livermint is not out of the game. I talked to him not too long ago. But his rank has went way down from what it was.

Post by: scoticus prime on September 29, 2013, 03:37:12 AM
Yeah, I know.  I farmed some of his planets when I first noticed they were "I".  Then he came back and went into v mode.

Post by: JacksRage on September 29, 2013, 03:42:01 AM
Yeah, i made a mad dash to get in contact with him when we saw the (I). Inactive players are always free game. :)

I too have seen several player near me that have all their stats, save DSP, well into the 1900 range.  Their DSP is in the top 100.  These players are (N) to me.

Matt, there's a fly in the formula!
Title: Re: where are these guys coming from????
Post by: scoticus prime on September 29, 2013, 04:01:24 AM
Well, that's my point.  Except for the TCBO1 guys, the players with high DSP and no fleet are probably players that are on the way out of the game.  Or they wouldn't have let their fleet get trashed.

I know most of the players you posted and all were already on their way out of the game before I started my alliance. General Mad Game is trying to decide weather to stay or join me.

I have no problem with Yncc and the alliance. It has made it more difficult to rank up but that is a petty concern in the long run. That superalliance has no bearing on my game at all. It seems to be human nature perhaps, i have seen it so much in this game over the months/years. Players who are frustrated for whatever reason climb to the highest building and trash this game and lay out the argument to quit in droves.  Players come and players go, its better to be like the water that carves the grand canyon and just be patient. Im certainly in no hurry to make the top 50. Just glad to be here and have my fleet intact...

Chill peeps. Its just a game!
We have players in the game, whose family are seriously ill. My mother included. So face it, things could be alot worse.
We play games as distractions from RL. Some of you seem to use this game as a replacement for RL.
YNC, is playing the game, his way, which is within the rules. Maybe some of you think its not within the spirit, and maybe, you have a point. However, it comes to a simple point, of either put up or shut up.

Rank is great. We all want to strive to be as high as we can be, however, it is no longer as inportant anymore. It hasnt been since the change in NPC last year.  Easy for me to say i know, as my rank can only realistically go down, and would i be pissed, if a group of players passed me on probe rides? Yes possibly. But it is what it is.

It is no differant inflating rank from dsp, as it is having 2m probes as a fleet.

As i said at the beginning, life could be far worse.. just enjpy the game for what it is.. A GAME!!!!
