Well, actually since you asked. I find it kind of imperialistic to just come through and snatch our pride right out of our hands. We were one with the spiritual Conquer Club and we mothered every ? that came into our lives. Just because we appeared to be primitive and not as domesticated doesn't mean we aren't kind, gentle, and giving souls. I personally believe that we are entitled to some form of reservation and casino offerings. I did subtly warn Twill that if we continue to be suppressed and erased from CC history than there will be an uprising where we attack your trains and burn your carriages. However, I've grown a bit depressed and am slowly forgetting what it means to be a farmer *Sigh*. I'm currently drinking my 4th bottle of hairspray while loathing my fallen fellow warriors and spirit ancestors.

I think what we need here is a 'farming treatment program'. Responsible members can set up some multis and distribute them liberally around the site on fave farming maps. King_H and his ilk can have fun finding them and enjoy that special satisfaction of beating a deadbeat. It is not as easy as it looks you know! Every month we'll create less multis and gradually wean our favourite farming friends off of their nasty little addiction. It is the only humane thing to do!

May I just nominate myself as the kind of responsible member Lack/Twill are looking for.

Give me the freedom to set up hundreds of accounts and you can be sure I will NEVER use them for my own ends. Never, not at all and I'd rather eat man muck for dinner off a shite-encrusted bed pan.

I'm more trustworthy than a materially contented nun, whose only desire is to serve God and her lesbian-inclined domanatrix sisters.

I'd wean King_H off farming faster than an extrememly fast man running for his life from an unusually enraged cheetah, who just happened to have been injected with super strength commie 'go faster comrade' steroids.

(That's how the Chinese won so many medals at the olympics)

So make Mr C the 'Farming Prevention with special attention to Weaning' Moderator and I'll sort all this out in about five minutes.

I think it'd be just as easy to change the points equation from:

(loser's score / winner's score) * 20, up to a maximum of 100 points from each opponent

to

((loser's score / winner's score) * 20) - 5

Anyone over 2500 points who takes on a newbie would actually lose points.

cheers.

Poor Jeff Hardy, he wants those precious points to preserve his "STAR"!

This kid wants to go after newbies, since he won't try to RISK! his ranking with a mature player.

Let's help out poor Jeffrey and let's help out other chicken-shit over-ranked pussies.

Here's what I propose, let's have games where all newbies must bend over or fall down on their knees and get their lil' cherries popped by high-ranked players. Now wouldn't that be a way to preserve these wimps from losing their ranks?

SAVE THE WHALES, SAVE OUR HIGH RANK PLAYERS!!!

i did not play new recruits even before this new rule was made and i do not choose to play low ranks

in fact, today i beat a lot of the top players on the site which is probably better than everything you have achieved since you joined the site

but if i start a game and a striper joins, how is it fair that im risking 60 points and cannot gain anything

i think someone is jealous

THE PEOPLE WHO DISAGREE WITH THIS R JUST AFRAID PEOPLE WILL FIND OUT THEY HAVE NO SKILL WITHOUT PLAYING NEW RECRUITS! n00bfarming isn't even fun, and this site is mainly made for fun! i have fun playing people the same rank as me, and even ranks a little higher than me. whenever i encounter a n00bfarmer, i sense it, and i immediately get out of any joinable games i might be in with them. because i am a n00b. its not a bad thing at all. some people (i am not saying this is me, cause it isn't) regret getting such a high rank because they think it is not as fun to be on the first page of the scoreboard, and think it is more fun to stay low with a low profile. after all its what the game is made for: FUN!!!! if people want this site to improve and move forward, n00bfarming must stop! many n00bs being harvested r spreading the word that this is a bad site! and the population of the website will not increase a tad, not with what is happening. some people dont want this to be overpopulated, but they have the same thoughts as n00bfarmers, they dont want to be faced against someone with greater skill and lose there position on the board. i vote for the improvement of the site, this is not a site that discludes people for the sake of keeping the positions the same, this is a site that accepts improvement!

Vote, u have two choices.

choice number 1: improve the site
choice number 2: disclude people from the site and give the site a bad reputation

its up to you! my vote: improve the site

Poor lil' Jeffrey Hardy is upset with me. Yep, he sent a p.m. to me to tell me how unfair I am with him....boo-hoo, somebody give me a hankie.

I tell you what Jeffrey, since you think I'm so brutal to you. Why don't we have people here who have posted on this thread to pick several games and with several options and then we'll decide whether a low rank individual like myself and high rank person like yourself is, umm, errr...more qualified as a player here at C.C.

Please, don't back down or come up with some lame excuse, play me with games on those who posted would choose and we'll see, if high rank means anything against a low rank piece of shit like myself.

Are you gamed or cluck, cluck....chicken. Let the games begin!

Why would anyone spend their free time taking part in a game that their opponents don't know how to play correctly? I don't get it. Apparently it's a problem, though, so people who get their rocks off that way must be out there...

Yes Skip, some players prey on newbies. It's about their self-esteem and their precious points and rank. Just like Jeff Hardy!

Well, actually since you asked. I find it kind of imperialistic to just come through and snatch our pride right out of our hands. We were one with the spiritual Conquer Club and we mothered every ? that came into our lives. Just because we appeared to be primitive and not as domesticated doesn't mean we aren't kind, gentle, and giving souls. I personally believe that we are entitled to some form of reservation and casino offerings. I did subtly warn Twill that if we continue to be suppressed and erased from CC history than there will be an uprising where we attack your trains and burn your carriages. However, I've grown a bit depressed and am slowly forgetting what it means to be a farmer *Sigh*. I'm currently drinking my 4th bottle of hairspray while loathing my fallen fellow warriors and spirit ancestors.

I think what we need here is a 'farming treatment program'. Responsible members can set up some multis and distribute them liberally around the site on fave farming maps. King_H and his ilk can have fun finding them and enjoy that special satisfaction of beating a deadbeat. It is not as easy as it looks you know! Every month we'll create less multis and gradually wean our favourite farming friends off of their nasty little addiction. It is the only humane thing to do!


So what your suggesting is sort of like a methadone program aimed at newbie farmers???

I can picture the line out the door now "C'mon man just one n00b please, I need one to get right. I'll pay you tomorrow. You know I'm good for it. AWWWW just one cmon *sob* please man."

Still no word from Twill with regards to me becoming the new 'Farming Prevention with special attention to Weaning' Moderator.

Just the kind of customer service we've all come to expect from CC.

I've even been working out scripts that'll allow my multis to - every once in a while - throw themselves at neutrals, just to make the experience that much more real for our reforming farmers.

I've shown I care; when is Twill going to show that he cares I care about the care of CC?

Re: New Years Resolution: Newbie Farming is not Cool.

Postby Greeboski on Mon Jan 05, 2009 5:03 am

i joined a few days ago. and have started 6 games in total. 2 of the games have been joint LAST by a mid-ranked player as the only non-noob. i also have joined 2 games started by ranked players. the other 2 games are 100% noob.

from what i have read here 2/3rd's of my games started to date could be farming games.

i do have a grasp of the rules of that board game that is almost similar, but do not know any of the other maps here.
also the interface takes a little getting used to.

i would propose that noob's be "quarenteened" to start with.
untill they have FINISHED playing four noob only games and last 6 turns in each.
ALSO each map should require ONE game against other "first few go's on this map" players. (a win would exclude a player from further unscored games on that map)
this should get them used to the interface in all aspects and not leave people clewless as to the maps.

all of these games should be unscored. and the player would have the rank "trainee" or "???" if you like.

to me this is the only way to STOP the practice, and is more like reality - all soldiers go through basic training even the generals did at some point.

The thing is, lots of newbs deadbeat. That's not a very good first experience, is it?

What we need are unranked games that are available to everyone. Then, New Recruits must play their first five games unranked before they show up on the scoreboard at 1000 points.

Here's an even better suggestion... Lack should make some multis of his own that roll straight sixes against anyone that's a Lieutenant or higher, if they are the only non-newbie in the game. That ought to be interesting. :lol:

I tell you what Jeffrey, since you think I'm so brutal to you. Why don't we have people here who have posted on this thread to pick several games and with several options and then we'll decide whether a low rank individual like myself and high rank person like yourself is, umm, errr...more qualified as a player here at C.C.

Please, don't back down or come up with some lame excuse, play me with games on those who posted would choose and we'll see, if high rank means anything against a low rank piece of shit like myself.

Are you gamed or cluck, cluck....chicken. Let the games begin!

General Stoneham

i say aor 3 fs foggy unl no cards
feudal adj sunny fs no cards

now please dont chicken out stoneham, i love beating haters

btw, did you even bother to look at my games or were you so jealous of my rank that you just had to start flaming?

Ok Jeffrey, just to make sure it ain't luck, but skill, I propose 20 games.

I'll pick 10 maps and options and you'll pick the same amount and options.

I'll p.m. you my 10 games with password and I'll expect the same from you.

We can then tell everyone here on Farming, how over-ranked you are, tee-hee, OR if I'm just full of shit.
