Version: 3.3
article
It all started a few days ago when Teckna attempted to make some changes to speed up the lackeys. Immediatly after brqzL became the first gf of the version, rumors started to spread that actually Smul had to become the first gf but this didn't happen because his booze and narcs lackeys didn't make any attempts to buy for 4 straight hours, causing him to lose a lot of rankpoints.

Last night and this morning the problem seems to escalate. People are constantly getting messages from the booze and narcs lackeys that they are waiting on new prices or are too stoned to do something, which resulted in most people's lackeys stopping at around 6 am this morning.

This itself of course is a problem, but the real problem is even bigger. It is rumoured, but after a lot of futile attempts we still can't confirm this, that even though those two lackeys aren't doing anything, they are still taking credits. If this is true, this bug causes players to lose real-life money.

Helpers in #help have already said that credits lost due to bugs will not be refunded.

Concerning the Smul vs brqzL discussion:

We're not saying that Smul should've become the first gf instead of brqzL. Heck, not even Smul himself is saying that. brqzL won the race fair and square, and he earned that. We're just using that situation for a) example purposes and b) timeline layout purposes, concerning the lackeys doing nothing.

well its kinda stupid bcs somebody acusing brzql that lackeys didn't worked and Smul lost rankpoints.Peope like Smul would never said smth like that they would suck it up and get on with it.Lackeys didn't worked for 4h for everyone so i lost some rankpoints and fall to #51 place but im not complaining.I was a bit more frustrated with DC issue which happenned today...

Lackeys aren't supposed to work as manual rankers

Actually, the admins did say that the lackeys are just as fast as manual ranking when they announced them.

And they are here to beat scripts.. So they should be faster or at least nearly as fast..
In the short run they're slower, but when your account gets tired they are faster

I have been wondering, does your lackey activity influence your online time? Or could you "rank manual" for 34 hours, and then have your lackeys on for the remaining 12 and not end up getting a punish? (If that system would work properly, which it does not anyways)

ofc you can rank on without the punish, you can run your lackeys 24/7 for a week long if you want to without any restrictions. lackeys don't even get tired. Even though the tekst says your acc is tired the lackeys just keep on buying booze/narcs without any problems. So yeah i do also wonder what the manual advantages are over lackeys, haven't seen em yet...

I wonder when the manual player is getting their promised advantage over lackey users.
The only morally correct thing with lackeys is that the money is going to Omerta instead of some sweaty, acne-ridden teenager in Denmark or Portugal.

As for Smul "should" be turning GF first, that is just crap. That is the same as saying that I should have actually been the first GF, if I had turned MY lackeys on. Whoever reaches 100% first is the first GF, unless there is a bug with the capomoney as we have seen in previous versions (especially in 2.5), THEN you can start claiming the title should have gone to you.
Should have ranked manually. Would have gotten your rp that way. Don't cry.

Maybe the bugs are implemented so that people log on manually more than twice a week, to see if their lackeys are working normally again?

When you got akilled in the past you couldnt use rebirth so that should prolly equal out compared to the 'active lackey credits lost' on death.
Refunds for fuckups, well, Atremo never gave me any credits back when it got stuck in its famous 'travel, fail to sell, fail to sell, prices will change soon!, travel etc loops so its alright i guess.

Only problem is, accounts lost their value entirely.
Everyone can get to brug, even with bullets, so brug amounts per fam exploded.
Yet often people still try to hold on to em as if its pure gold.

diff is you were officially cheating wwher

All the crew think about nowadays it's money. And yes, eventhough there is a company named Omerta Ltd. behind all this and companies are to make money, Brando is making some wrong moves. I mean, most of us have been playing this game for years now; buying donating codes, keeping the game alive. So I don't understand why suddenly they're being so greedy with credits. Since the introduction of the lackeys their earnings must have doubled or tripled so it actually would be nice to see some decency in return, like returning credits on lackeys when you die or refunds when THEY make mistakes. But thats just my $0,02.

I'm pretty cool with the idea that I sent 2 txt messages that got me to brug, with bullets and everything trained to the max - without having to worry about adminkills and whatnot. While it didn't took more than a few hours of my time over the course of 2 weeks. Value for money I'd call that. On top of that I can continue with legal scripting for free the rest of the version, as all it takes is buy a DC from the auction house with money the script made for you.

My point being: I gladly accept that they fuck up now and then when in return I get quite a lot and peace of mind (if you script illegally you often hand out your password, you risk adminkills, etc ...) for hardly any money.

Provided this is a one time fluke and it's not going to be a recurring issue, I don't think it's that big of a deal.

Totally agree, lackeys beat any script by far already if we talk about how much € you spend to have a nice account.

Completely agree. Even though zenga is a known cheater which i can't stand :) But most of his thoughts are rational (except for those supporting duping).

Lackeys aren't supposed to work as manual rankers, and if they had some issues, np with that. I personally would be retired long time, if not for lackeys. And i know very many other players who would be retired too - simply because the game isn't worth 16 hours of your day, whatever way you put it.
If they give you possibility to play and not stay too much behind, i can agree with small disadvantages like testing bugs etc.
