Make sure when clearing cache/cookies in FF 3.5+ to choose "EVERYTHING" in the top dropdown of the clearing browsing history window if it doesn't work the first time, otherwise you are clearing only cache/cookies you received in the last few hours or last few days!

The Emergency boosts we can tweak to add SOME sort of cooldown so they cannot be spammed in the same tick? Don't forget that $19.50 US(~14 Euros) in Battle Dawn Classic gets you 17,500 metal and oil as well as 100 workers and double production of metal/oil for 168 ticks. The total you receive is easily well over 25,000 metal and 23,000 oil(Accounting for only level 4 metal/oil production and less than 500 workers) once you factor in the amount you get from double production.

If you were to try to get the same amount in the new client it would cost you roughly 14 euros(1400 tokens). It would take you 2 days to get the instant boost of 17,500 if you bought 2 heavy metal and 2 heavy oil boosts(assuming getting 9,000 metal/oil, the middle point for the large metal/oil boosts) just to get the metal/oil and workers. Another 380 tokens(3.80 euros) to get the equivalent double production of metal/oil for 168 ticks which is actually 300 ticks of 50% increased production in the new client.

Our main goal in the new client supporting system was to decrease the speed you can get an influx of resources so that you can't drop 50 bucks and buy a massive army in 1 tick. These new emergency boosts are a very inefficient way to do that but it still can be done so we're going to need to tweak them some more.

I'm thinking adding a cooldown of 12 ticks so you can only buy 1-2 while under attack if you have a shield and making it be the same dynamic values that the small metal/oil boosts have, what do you think guys?

I am using Microsoft Exployer. I cleared the Cache, history, etc.

I am able to get onto all worlds except Mars 1.

I even tried to get on using someone elses computer that can log onto Mars 1 with his account.

Is there something blocking my log in username?

ANDREW: and everyone else who believes the cost for resources is more than the old client: That may be true but it isn't going to stop someone from dumping a pile of money. On the old client you couldn't buy the top two packages for some time, the Plat was like 4+ days. Yet donators was still pounding on the smaller packages. What does this tell you.. That even though the resources cost more on the new client... it doesn't matter. They WILL pay for it. Now you'll have the ability to get x1 metal/oil any time, x2 metal/oil every 25 and x3 metal/oil every 100. It can, it has, and it will happen that donator will buy all 3 boosts and then just pound on the emergency one.

So yes, I think a cooldown would be good to have. 12? well that's better than multiple times a tick or even every tick.


LOGIN: Do you have any other suggestions besides clearing the cookies/cache/history/temp int files? None has worked. It almost did when I was stuck at the 4 bars. but now it's gone back to the server list cycle.

edited: Just tried again, I'm stuck at 4 bars.
edited: I can get into E1 but not E4
edited: Here's something funny. I was at the 4bars on E4. accidently hit the enter key and it shot up 3 more bars. hit the enter key again and the loading box disappeard.

Well, making the emergency metal boost cost a lot more, or giving it a shorter cooldown would lessen the amount of people with 50 range vehicles in the first 20 ticks.

Those problems have been fixed now :).

I'm thinking that 12 is too much compared to the cost and timing of the regular metal/oil boosts. How about a 3 or 6 tick cooldown with an increased cost of 400 for metal, 450 for oil and keeping workers at 360?

Those ideas are better. 3 ticks cooldown sounds good, and those prices are much better. Best way to find out is to try them out ingame and we can see how much more players dominate with these new packages.
