Maximum game turns

Post by Zhar » Sat Jun 27, 2009 1:18 am

Maximum turns you can have on your account should be restricted to 10k.

It's not right a player not to play for 2.5 months, to stockpile turns and then use them in the last week to gain rank or mass everyone.

its like saying some players are entitled to more turns to other just because they play more...
if you spend your turns early in the game and build up defense, you get more naq from income... this evens out the end...
and if you get massed in the end, then you havent built up enough stats / ur a nub like me

I like it as it is because if you go away for a few days and can't use ATs but are able to buy them, then u would be in a big disadvantage if you couldn't buy them past 10k

Setting a maximum number of turns is a VERY GOOD IDEA.

How silly is it that someone thinks that they should not be penalized for missing just a couple of weeks of play? Perhaps we should give a bonus then, if you miss more than a month!?! Ridiculous!

Playing a game and excelling at it SHOULD be measured in terms of participation and performance. Who cares if you are the best player in the world if you only play for one day out of 90?

Setting limits is a very good idea that would have to be tempered with the number of turns awarded daily, as well as the number that can be purchased from the market.

Here's a thought. Perhaps a person will not be allowed to buy turns from the market unless they meet some minimum threshold of activity per EACH WEEK. It could be measured in terms of Naq farmed or minutes played or ATs USED.

This would allow even weekend players to maintain their market eligibility. If you don't maintain, then you lose eligibility to buy the 2400 turns per day until you again attain the minimum threshold.

And finally, the total number of awarded turns and bought turns should each be capped separately at say 4.8k awarded turns and 24k bought turns (10 days worth) for a total of 28.8k. This would prevent people from taking advantage of the ever-rising Naq levels, so that they swoop in only at the very end of the wave.

I just don't understand this..why kill the strategies? I'm sure we ALL want MORE strategies, NOT less

BIG NO for limiting game turns

No not really
Besides you can't punish someone because s/he hasn't got time due to RL

reward activity, do not punish inactivity.

Activity is rewarded.. you gain turns naturaly when you are under 2k.. theoretically, if you use your turns constantly, and are always generating turns.. you get 20% more turns than someone just buying turns off the market.

Skill, strategy and activity are all important. Each equally. Just because one person is more active, does NOT mean they should win.

Exactly..Activity already is awarded while inactivity isn't punished which is right, heck punishing someone for not spending most of his/hers freetime behind Quantum is plain dumb..
