Totally unconfirmed House-destruction rumor

ShaydeShayde Member Posts: 4,529
You can rename your house to remove the word "abandoned" from the title.



Some speculate that was the only way $OE could code the condemned status for packup. That it looks through the titles in the database to find the word "abandoned" to know what to pack up.



Now while I'd say in a normal world, $OE couldn't be this stupid to code it this way... but they've proven they're complete idiots. I urge everyone who can log in for the trial to try this and spread the word.



Worth a shot, eh?

  • Wait so what is the deal with this? Do you to call up and deal with their horrible tech support to get em to re-activate your account for the 14 days?
  • ShaydeShayde Member Posts: 4,529

    But ....

     

    if you are no longer playing, then why care if the house is packed up to clear areas for those that do still play?

    It's their way of sticking it to The Man, SOE.  Besides griefing is fun.

    Im pretty possitive the word in the name is abandoned, because I just opened my account for trial and thats the word on every player placed building ... welll 95% of them lol.  

  • FrenzFrenz Member Posts: 48
    Should be interesting to see how many houses are left after this.
  • Just tried logging in and it told me to re-subscribe. Bump that garbage. $OE ain't gettin any more of my money till I see a pre-patch 5 server!



    Owell, woulda been fun to get on like the multiple accounts my buddy and I had just to refresh the houses. I thought putting 20mil in all of em before I left would of kept em forever as an eyesore to the world, but I guess not =/



    Owell, Hubert Farnsworth's Planet Express had a good run.

    Dont think your houses can be refreshed on the 14 day trial, not positive though, just what someone else said
  • DarthRaidenDarthRaiden Member UncommonPosts: 4,333
    As reaction to $OE's grief we could take screenies of  the with "abandoned" labeled   houses and spread it around Internet. Since  95% of population meets these criteria

    this should give the right picture of the state of this game to the "world".



    Another action could be an organized event of us Vets, we hope in , pack up buildings ourself  and hope out, don't give em content.

    You're absolutely right. I'll fix my post.



    condemned, abandoned, same thing.



    I did confirm that the last few vet trials reset the clock. None of my structures on my lots are set for demolition and I haven't paid since the day before the nge.

    It seems that players that have exercised previous freebie vet trials have their houses spared from the demolition list....reven without investing one bloody cent into $OE for over a year.

    problem is, your aren't sticking it to the man, you're not doing a damn thing to soe, you're taking up space the few remaining players could use.  If soe cared we would not be talking about this at all, the dumb asses wouldn't have changed a good game so much. so dont take it out on the players.

    Does anyone remember the pics they put out showing the housing placement on the serves. I think it was one of their Friday features or something. I don't think they did it for ever server though. I can't even imagine what they would look like after this housing demolition, well I guess I can... empty..

    Get a crafter.



    Create 10,20,30 factory runs of cheapest building, and name them "abandoned".



    Wait for purge.



    Start yelling at tech support that you lost 2500 small correlian houses.

    A mate of mine is playing the free trial. Dont know if this is anything you guys want to know. His house said abandoned on it. He picked it up and put it back down. It no longer says abandoned on it.

    To be willing to screw over the players in an effort to 'get back at SOE', it makes you worse than anything SOE ever did to the players. Yeah, you're REALLY showing them!

    Nice job!

    Thank you.



    If I can take the blame for the nge like the other thread gives me, I can also take credit for the inconvience a few non-deleted structures will cause. Oh the humanity.

    Well if you weren't around before the NGE you would not understand and I personally think anyone who plays the game wont be affected unless getting to destroy abandoned houses was the only available content and if thats the case then its still SOE's fault.

    Well I have to disagree with you here. It completely affects anyone playing the game today.  And not due to a content reason.The reason  why is this. There are new city's around the different planets as well as ones still starting to pop up. Alot of these towns cannot get the shuttleports they should have and deserve b/c they are all taken up in city's that are basiclly unpopulated "old" city's, due to the cap. There are also players who have joined exisiting guilds and city's as well as transfers and these people cannot place there houses inside there home city's  limits because of these old houses. Again it's not like your losing your belongings there just being packed up. So the only people this hurts is the current players. So it is hurting the new players city's as well as community interaction.

    But I know you guys don't care and are happy about this so.

    And a few less destroyed houses isn't going to matter. Especially when most already will be long gone.



    But it is funny to see current players whine. Isn't the game great? That's what y'all keep telling us.

    Nobody's whining we leave that up to you. Just stating a fact.  And i guess your right since you play the game so much currently you know it won't matter so i'll will let you go back to thinking of ways to get back at SOE. Since that seems to be your life goal.
