At least you lucky bastards get to play the timeout game! HP decided to update the bloatware on my computer last night so now I need a full system restore before I can get back online. :mad:

If you think MA is idiots, get yourself a HP product! :lolup:

Is that the laptop that got marketed with a dual core processor but delivered with a single core...?

Going to see if I can get a clean installation without all the bloatware...

It's not.

MA can you please put more pumpkins in other TPs?
Then I don't need to feel like I am missing something.

I don't get it. After Friday's debacle they should have added more Mr Pumpkins first thing today.

The way escaping from nymphtown is by using a summon from a spaceship. Takes a 7 ped tp down to planet though but well, make a supportcase to (try) have MA refund you that...

I truly sympathize with you. Or do you move out of the house for the next couple days and place some hazmat stickers before leaving? :eyecrazy:

I was trying to get in when there were over 120 people (7th page of Friends's list, Nearby) standing around in Nymphtown.

I'm not a server expert, but it doesn't sound like that big of a load.

Im not sure... however, I know many multiplier fps games were restricted to 32 players a long time. Think it expanded to 40ish at some point but not sure if the standard of fps-games has gone any higher since I no longer really care. But apparently, players causes a lot of server load.

I don't think that stupid teleporting animation helps much, wouldn't a door somewhere have been better? On radar every since it began there's been a heap more green dots on radar than visible avas round the pumpkin.

The sudden release of small runs of loot isn't helping MA's rep much is it..again? Not that they care, because unlike any normal business you already paid them for it and you won't be getting it back. Also, everyone will suck it up..again.

This may be a virtual world and RCE and all, but you are also paying customers of a business and no other business would get away with this or their customers constantly accept it.

I don't know, but I assume that other companies running other planets are stuck with the same hardware as MA on Caly if they'd like better or not? If that's true, maybe they will force a change in time if they have better attitude to players?

The issue is that calypso hasn't bothered, at least with any success, to work with mindark on the patch day loot pinata that all other planets seemingly have resolved. Arkadia doesn't have this problem. Cyrene used to have a predictable system that has been resolved.

It probably is with all the server load each avatar produces. It shows all the over head that is needed. Worst thing they could have done was funnel people to one spot for this.

I posted this earlier, but will repost...

When you enter the instance, follow the fenceline to the right. About at the point between the lower and higher maturity mutant spawns, there's an opening in the fence. Follow the trail, and it will take you to the house/castle/whatever where you can spawn the vamp. There is a box of some sort (iirc from last year) where you select operate, and insert the essence into the window that opens.

Thank You, Strash was kind enough to explain to me in game!
