Market / Clunys hut / Steal
« on: March 26, 2021, 08:17:24 AM »

Is this really true? Why??

When I found out, I couldnt actually kill someone I thought of buying out the markets, keeping an eye on NW's that were going up and than performing Steal. However, the cash goes towards cluny's hut first and only drips out of the bank into the regular account, which also makes that a worthless strat.

I get the feeling this code is designed to protect the time and effort people put in to playing this game.

The common denominator of successful games is competitiveness.

I'm sorry if I sounds like I'm complaining a lot, just trying to help.

Critter prom yo.     
We've tended to have a younger, less pure-competitive playerbase and we protected them.   

Those players are mostly gone so I'm willing to make some concessions; kills were a part of RWL til relatively recently so it's not a huge stretch to bring them back. 

As far as successful games...  afaik we're the last of our era.  QMT, Vahalla... all super competitive and all super gone.  

We've had others make the argument that our game is too soft.  I've always offered to help those people setup their own promi, none of them have taken me up on it. 
The last gen QMT and FAF code bases are super mature and easily setup, I'd argue FAF was probably the best.  
A Goldfish has an attention span of 3 seconds...  so do I

Buying out someone's market is a viable option. Ryu and I did it very successfully a while back. It takes a lot of preparation making the cash though and it is very high risk when doing it against people that log in every few hours. If you get caught, you end up with not much.

  • Uiblis: ya balance is for sure something im looking to tackle
    March 31, 2021, 06:04:18 PM
  • Uiblis: though I also think the game is pretty daunting and unintuitive to pick up for a new player

  • Uiblis: i personally feel like one of the toughest parts is the lack of cohesiveness that drives any feeling of improvement

  • Uiblis: you just kind of fritter away turns until someone teaches you some basic strategies, but I want that to lead to more interactive, emergent gameplay

  • JesterAverageJoe: I know this has been something a number of very intelligent, & exceedingly perceptive developers have been trying to figure out for years. Makes me wish there wasn't so much bad blood between the different communities & circles, so that maybe a mature discussion could be shared~

  • windhound: One of the coolest thing about RWL in the beginning was there was no meta.

  • windhound: Everyone was sorta flailing around, so it didn't take much to be average at the game when most everyone was terrible at it.

  • windhound: Now it's basically like joining a CS or Halo server that's been up for years, those left playing have super optimized strats and it's tougher to just jump in.

  • JesterAverageJoe: in a way, I feel like one of the only ways to marry the Prom functions w/ mobile interfaces would be to have some 3rd party/intermediary java program... Certainly not ideal where entry is concerned~

  • Uiblis: prob just rebuild the whole ui from scratch in react/react native and overhaul the look while im at it
    March 31, 2021, 09:22:30 PM
  • Uiblis: never liked the ui, it was messy af and didnt distill the important info out
    March 31, 2021, 09:22:55 PM
  • Uiblis: been writing a lot of rust recently so might give that a shot for the backend
    March 31, 2021, 09:23:23 PM
  • Uiblis: either way theres 0 chance i use any existing code
    March 31, 2021, 09:23:59 PM
  • Ryu: You should sign up this round Uiblis. You run a pretty mean wolf from what I remember.

  • windhound: Sorry if the site's a little flakey today guys, ASO is having issues with their nameservers.  I've put a fix in, but DNS propogation can take a few hours.

  • Uiblis: it's been a while, ill give it q shot
