So far so good, pretty much. While trading on the Sabah II Wall, you posted that you had gold in Theoris & couldn't find any trades. I said that my Capital was emeralds & I was always looking for more gold traders. I gave you my moniker & told you to scroll me there to help you with your jewelry trades. We made like two trades, then you gifted me a ton of gold w/o warning cuz you said you didn't know what to do with it. You said you had accumulated something like 20K gold. Serious players do not do this. Part-time non-serious players do this.
Anyway I traded with Tinkerbell put them on my allies list. My city redlined (orange) in gold. So I randomly picked someone from my ally list to send some gold to thinking I was being nice. And yes you guessed it I just had to pick Tinkerbell.
Nice spin, but I doubt it that that happened as you said. Apparently, I was not trading you enough emeralds & you wanted to speed up the process. You see, Joyee, you are not a serious player, but rather a chatter. Amun Nefer is the very same way, for example.
Redlining is a symptom that you are not a serious player. The solution to redlining is to take labor off gold & do something else with your labor, not to start gifting it away so you can redline again.
So I get this insane scroll about how I am invading his private game space (I had never read the forums) and how I was cheating.
You did invade my private space w/o permission.
So I scrolled him back told him I would delete my account so that he would not receive the gold in which he came back with if that is the way you are going to play you should delete your account yadda yadda.
Bzzzzzzzzz. I scrolled you back "What?" Why are you deleting? You would just have to wait for me to make enough emeralds or for me to have enough boats to return your gold. This resulted a another scroll from you & with that one, I did indeed say that if you were not a serious player, then deletion was probably the best option for you. Not to eliminate your gold boats, but to do something else besides two part-time worlds. Then I said "Good Luck in Sabah!"
EDIT: Since we all now know that at the very bottom of Joyee's "vengence" now is gifting, let's continue on that theme.
My hypothesis is that we have a small group of "players" who would rather chat "waste time" then actually play the game. I believe scarabs are at the bottom of this also. They got to the top of the ranks in Theoris w/o scarabs & this is why there is not that much of a problem in Theoris (yet).
They either do not want to go Immortal, or are unable to for whatever reason. They just hang on. These players are General Wall chatters & believe this is the "heart of the game" (Amun Nefer again). They start to build up tons of the wrong stuff & enter into God Mode ~ gifting. They can sit on the walls & give stuff away. I almost got to this point myself in Sabah I (while waiting for the elusive quests), but soon realized that it was time to go. I went Immortal in Sabah.
They don't care about other players & damn you if you refuse their gifts. Gifting makes them feel good. I can understand this kinda...
