As many of you know Rerolling Forums is used to obtain the maximum amount of Cred from forums with variable thread numbers. Currently 14 threads in MemeBusters is the maximum gives you the most Cred you can get out of 1 visit. But is that a good thing? The constant page hits created by attempting to Reroll MemeBusters or in some cases Wiccapedia must be taking at least a slight toll on the servers and often leads to a great deal of frustration for the player trying to get that max thread number.

On the one hand this could be viewed as the price you pay for trying to get the E-Peen or trying to earn the max Flezz possible. But while it’s one thing to be frustrated by game balance *cough*Trolls*cough* it’s another thing entirely to be frustrated by a situation brought about by the game interface itself.

Are there other options? Should we sacrifice the RP aspect of a random # of threads in those forums for an improvement in player satisfaction such as a Max Possible Threads option in the options tab or removing the variable numbers entirely?

Vile serpent! I generally avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.

Honestly anyone who is trying to compete for max cred is going to use whatever is the optimal forum thread count possible. Of course that makes for a boring character as you spend time rerolling meme until you get 14 threads 4 times. It generally means you only run other threads when you are prepping to gain one of the new epeens.

I don’t really think it’s a problem but it might make people leave the game in the long term if they get bored grinding every day.

It’s a good idea, but should only be available after completing episode 1.

The other option is to make entering a forum count against your visits for the day no matter what. However that option was used in the past and apparently people loathed the idea. Of course that would only shift people from doing meme x4 back to doing PP x4 because the average credit gain would be better on PP.

Well, a variable amount of forums is good for people who just want to do the forum, and want to use as little effort as possible, while still pleasing people who want to get a lot of cred.

I know it’s frustrating because, since you and I are both going for the Cred leaderboard…I’ve had some bad weather lately, and couldn’t use my forum visits over the past couple of days, so I have 12 saved up. 4 runs isn’t too bad, but getting 12 runs of 14 forums is going to be a pain.

Still, if I wanted something easier, I could just do the runs at 12-13 forums. I choose to do 14 for optimal cred.

Well, the problem with that is if you click a bad link, you’re stuck in the forum and have to finish it out.

I have ample evidence that ET is a weedy little twerp.

I’ve done something to address this since people entering and leaving was being nasty to the server.

The number of threads in a forum is still random, but it only changes once every 30 minutes.

Additionally, the random number of threads is the same for every player on the server.

In other words, leaving and entering a forum will no longer give you an advantage. Leaving it and checking it again in 30 minutes might, but somehow I doubt that will give you the same advantage that it used to Log in to see images!

So we just have to wait for the right 30 minute period? That’s just EVIL Log in to see images!

Better just crosspost to all the forums in order to make sure it hits the right one…

Not particularly. Some of my research grinds were made longer than necessary specifically because I had to re-roll to get 4 of the same number of threads. This change provides more positives than negatives for spaders.

Won’t this just lead to way more people pwning Memebusters at the 30 minute period that it’s at 14? And it takes some Trolls about 10 minutes to do the forum meaning that they can only get 3 runs of 14 within that 30 minutes anyway.

Honestly how many people are really grinding meme at 14 threads x4 each day? Even counting alts for some people it really doesn’t seem like more than 50-100 accounts that are really hammering memebusters.

Further the time limit will discourage people from saving up 12 visits in order to do 12x meme as it seems virtually impossible to expend 12 visits on meme in a 30 minute period. However based on being able to run it 10 times with 2 characters this morning I’d say 4-8 runs seems pretty doable for most players. Troll will probably be sucking it up but what else is new…

If anything this will likely encourage most of the cred leaders to move back to PP unless they are willing to camp until 14 thread meme loads. Yeah that means some people will lose ground to others but cie la vie.

Oh yeah, 30 minutes of GUARANTEED 14 forums in Memebusters, that everyone will be waiting to pounce on. That’s a real disadvantage. Log in to see images!
