A Guide for All Guild Leaders - Two-Lane x1.9 Thread

Zeratul 2.0

Lieutenant Colonel
It is out there, obvious and simple. But no one thought of it.

In each top guild, there is only one x1.9 thread. Crowded and disorderly. Long waiting list and simultaneous calling of spots happen all the time.

Also, the x1.9 thread always has extremely strict rules such as exact math for securing, and notably, the "no chatting" rule, because the requesting and claiming of spots, and the absolutely necessary message to explain occasional mistaken donation of incorrect amount, or to settle conflicts, etc. are noisy enough.

With the above two reasons combined, the drawback comes to the point where people abandon the supposedly fabulous x1.9 and opt to the problematic (in terms of profits and losses) yet convenient and leisurable "normal swaps".

The solution to this problem is so readily arrivable, that it bewilders Zeratul why none of the brilliant leaders of guilds have thought of it yet. Just like the "trail" turns into "path" and then to "paved road" and "two-lane motorway" in game, why not build "two lane" or multiple lane x1.9 thread? -- identical lanes of x1.9 thread, or let's call them identical x1.9 threads for simplicity (naming them "lanes" is only for analogizing to the in-game roads).

When traffic is too heavy, and jammed, in one x1.9 thread, people can post in the other identical x1.9 thread(s), for clarity and orderliness ("traffic divergence"). With multiple x1.9 threads, people can also have a sense of "choices" and fun. There can also be nuance differentiations, for example, one thread can be more serious, preferred for the posting of big spots, "P1 & P2" and the other can be for the minor spots P3~P5, and still another can be used more often as newbies' training ground, and more leisurely, where the "no chat" rule can be relaxed, which also serves to compensate for all the stresses caused in the said more serious counterpart.

I think the above explains the idea sufficiently. What do you think, guild leaders?

The best way to efficient match players on x1.9 threads is divide and create threads with players that :
1) have sufficient Stock of FP's to Contribute to supply the spots
2) the time each GB is supposed to be leveled within
3) the prints needed for each player
4) Insta Leveling - other than the x1.9 thread (which x1.9 is way to old - any serious guild should have x1.95 by now) Every Guild needs at least 5 ACTIVE investors for members to level instantly any GB they want (might you know it as "power-leveling"

Considering all those things, and creating using factors as standarts, we can significally increase both speed and efficiency of any x1.9 thread

Most Players use x1.9 threads to farm FP's with their 80+ Arcs while they have private threads for leveling their Great Buildings.
 
x1.9 is way to old - any serious guild should have x1.95 by now
Why? By sticking with 1.9 it allows more people to participate and the more serious players as you put it can make a small profit every time they take a spot.

Also 1.9 is easier math to do in your head than 1.95

Agreed! They invested 10K FPs for an extra level of the Arc, to gain +0.1% boost, and therefore should feel (

) for profitting from the x1.9 thread!

If they don't profit from me, I would feel

That would be silly
like securing spots for x1.9 while they can be sniped from higher Arcs is wiser ?
Or should we care about the 1FP or 1m FP they invested ?
Any Serious Guild should provide his members the maximum, and x1.9 belongs to the past

Or do both.

go back to your gameboy quickly
So you don't have an argument. Presumably you must be very old if you consider the Game Boy new. You also appear to have a bad education based on your grammar.

If its secure then it can't be sniped :?
and how the guild gets benefited if a player with an 100lvl Arc out of the guild makes profit (or in common Snipes) those spots ?
Unless that person is a friend of ours ?

And where did the "silly" thingy went now ? :P

Ok veggie, we wont make x1.95 threads because 30 people in each world, and more than half of them, made arcs higher than 100lvl using cheats but we must still let them farm the guildmates.
Very reasonable notice, you are 100% agreed, we do not want to help newer players, but instead farm their Great Buildings and make the game harder for them.
100% Smart with perspective for the game +1
 
Who's cheating?

My arc is 110 and I wouldn't know where to begin with cheating in this game.

If your guild wants a 1.95 or a 2 thread then go ahead, nothing is stopping you
 
most new players don't have the fp available to make use of a 1.9 thread so are stuck with swaps, I also use them to help them out and often put over 400% for a spot

x1.95 thread would make the use of such a thread easier or harder to use for them ?
Do we now understand each other as to why ?
 
It would make it harder because most struggle with the concept as it is, making the math that little bit harder will not help
