How would you rate this deal?

Postby JMISBEST » Thu Nov 21, 2019 8:16 am

A player who used to be 1 of mine has moved to another group that has recently started Drinax, has made himself the leader of the in-game group and has persuaded his players to have them set up a small but powerful New Kingdom of Drinax with a better deal then the 1 Drinax had under me. So what do you think of the deal that my Ex Player had Drinax set up with his new group in his new campaign

Basically Inurin and Sperle provide Food, Bryni provides ships, ship-yards and soldiers, Drinax, Neumann and Tech-World provide Tech, Falcon, Albe and Neuman provide workforce's for all the planets, Simok has the war ended, The Pharaoh’s Fertility restored and Imperial Intervention stopped, Exe provides Fuel and gets decent defenses, Wildeman gets the benefits of A very high-tech Class-B Starport and the ability to build ships up to 1,000 tons that comes with it, Kteiroa gets Drinax aid to build a decent fleet, as well as better weapons, armour, equipment and supplies as well as protection from reprisals and we break Acrid and Argona free from The PRQ and they provide the materials and minerals

In the end Drinax gets the worlds of Inurin, Sperle, Bryni, Tech-World, Falcon, Albe, Neuman, Exe, Simok, Wildemen Kteiroa, Acrid and Argona and nets around 271.2 million part-time soldiers equipped at TL 8 to 12 and around 41.5 million fill-time soldiers equipped at TL's 10 to 15 and nets a defensive Navy of 159 that range from 100 tons to 800 tons Ships to form a new Drinax Regional Forces and another 44 Ships into The Drinax Starguard and they all range from 200 tons to 1,000 tons

Switch out your medication. Check their expiration dates. And floss often.

Could it be that when you say 'player in yet another Drinax game' you mean 'what do you think of this hypothetical situation I've come up with?'

Sometimes I think those are generated by some startup testing their machine learning algorithms. But I know it's not.

I have googled the nickname though.

I’m not sure how I feel about all the comments made about certain users. Can’t we just all be happy with everyone?

I'll take a swing at this Moppy: I think folks are getting tired of having the same silliness posted over and over again.

The deal post.
Nov 21 2019 about a deal. This thread

October 26 2019 viewtopic.php?f=89&t=122317&p=940364#p940364 copy and paste chunks of the deal, some variation, but the same deal overall

July 8 2019 deal thread viewtopic.php?f=89&t=122166&p=938363&hilit=deal#p938363

Add in threads about scenarios from dreams and you get the sort of responses you saw in this thread.
viewtopic.php?f=89&t=122345&p=940768&hi ... am#p940768
viewtopic.php?f=89&t=122295&p=939990&hi ... am#p939990

There are 5 more dream urls I found on search, so many I had to edit them out as having too many urls in a single message.

So you have the author of the Drinax campaign saying over and over in thread after thread that the poster is way outside anything written and no advice is possible, and the questions keep on appearing. Even you have posted sarcastic comments on the threads ( viewtopic.php?f=89&t=122226&p=939185&hi ... am#p939186 )

PsiTraveller: I understand the issue, but what do you want to do? Ban a user for something probably beyond their control?

I have posted serious responses to the questions if the question is coherent. On repetition I repeat the answer and quote the original thread. On silly questions I ignore the thread. Others point out the silliness.

At some point I may just ignore any posts, or use the ignore button.

It's a question for the mods I guess.
