Things to do when CB1 is dead (in Off-topic)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 24 2005 3:07 AM EST

I'm trying to find things to do while cb1 is down, mostly to keep me from borking up my finely *chortle* tuned *snicker* cb2 char. Suggestions are welcome, as I almost just spent 50k cb2 renting stuff to keep me entertained. It'd be fun to do, if I didn't know I'd watch my pr fly up and my rewards go down....please help.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 24 2005 3:18 AM EST

help folks, I'm back to trying to keep busy playing world called me!

{cb1}dyno December 24 2005 3:20 AM EST

I'm in the same boat =( Wish I could help ya.

RAMPAGE December 24 2005 3:59 AM EST

It least it gives me more time to work on my plans for world dominance. =)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 24 2005 4:07 AM EST

rampage, I want in, can I be the Janitor?

AdminShade December 24 2005 7:25 AM EST

perhaps post some stats about the spells and skills?

IndependenZ December 24 2005 7:29 AM EST

CB1's dead? Aren't you guys about a year too late with this announcement? ;)

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 24 2005 8:21 AM EST

things to do.....

* Laugh at Cb2
* Go surf the web for some joke website for a good laugh
* Run around screaming
* Hit something that makes a really loud noise

{CB1}Bio December 24 2005 9:45 AM EST

"* Hit something that makes a really loud noise" you mean like shade?? :-p but yes i am trying not to get on alot now because everytime i see that daggum white screen i get so mad (as i just did)

[Divine] Matt December 24 2005 9:54 AM EST

man cb1 where did you go matt misses you and I think im going a little crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

RAMPAGE December 24 2005 12:33 PM EST

Things to do.....

* Create a new CB2 account (You need something to do while BA reloads on main account)
* Spam Chat with "Bring back CB1" over and over again.
* Send Jon several thousand CM and e-mails asking him to fix CB1 first.
* Spam the forums.
* Send a letter to the White House stating you will harm George W if Jon doesn't fix CB1.

Oh wait a minute those are things NOT to do.
Sorry please go back to your regular fighting.
Thank you

Thraklight Resonance December 24 2005 12:39 PM EST

Start a petition to have Jon implement an 80% rescale before opening CB1 to the public again.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 24 2005 1:07 PM EST

thrak you are an evil evil twisted creature, I hope you trip and fall and die for christmas.

[Divine] Matt December 24 2005 2:02 PM EST


Special J December 24 2005 2:05 PM EST

Things to do:

Complain about it somewhere else
Play CB2 since CB1 is no longer updated, or a challenge.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 24 2005 2:17 PM EST

somewhere else? like your house?

TinTizzy December 24 2005 8:11 PM EST

all cb2 freaks you bums should go back cb1

Thraklight Resonance December 24 2005 9:11 PM EST

Dear Santa,

Novice wished for me to meet a gruesome demise on Christmas day. Please arrange for Rudolph and the other reindeer to fill up all of his Christmas stockings and presents with the appropriate response.


Thrak (the evil and twisted CB elf)

P.S. Could you eliminate the remaining bugs in CB2 so Jonathan can get on with that 80% rescale over on CB1?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 24 2005 11:36 PM EST

hahahah hahahah hahahha
you rock!

Special J December 25 2005 2:08 PM EST

Here's one,

Not making a new post everyday that it is down.

Keep it in one thread.

Wasp December 25 2005 5:27 PM EST

Making new threads its fun. Might also get CB1 up quicker. CB2 is such a... drag? I mean, After the festivities have passed, late night christmas day is boring... but hell, not boring enough to play cb2... Don't be silly. Whens CB1 being fixed? ETA would be good.

Special J December 25 2005 5:46 PM EST

When it is done, that is about the time it will come back up.

Not posting a thread a day was not a request, it was an order.
If you don't like CB2, then please leave and stop telling us how bad it is.

Again, not a request.

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] December 25 2005 5:59 PM EST

Maybe its just me, but is it a select few people that play CB1 still that are complaining really loud? Why are you people playing CB1 still? CB1 Chat has a total of maybe 6 or 7 people in it at all times. Can you even think about giving CB2 a chance? Come on !

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 25 2005 6:15 PM EST

I like cb2, bad mouthing it probably won't help our case, even if it does have some especially baffling aspects to it. CB1 has it's problems (ELB, CoBF, CF bug, and on and on), but at least there you can't run a single mage up to a mil score with only 300k HP(ok maybe you could, but you sure as heck couldn't fight 3 point clan members with it).

Shark December 25 2005 10:03 PM EST

Subject: Things to do when CB1 is dead...heh
Try to love the people from the Netherlands..that should take up some of your time :)..they are human too after all, and need love just like we do..
You could, if you get really bored go read my concert reviews on MIMF..Its a Dutch Run site.. if you are not into Dutch Pipe Organ Recital Reviews or Classical Music, you may have a hard time finding it..What the hell is a pipe organ? Thats what I thought...
Havent got the Trans Siberian Orchestra Review up yet.
Gloated over Paul McCartney's show
trashed the Rolling Stones..boy was that fun to verbally abuse those 60+ year old hippies w/Big Lips..
maybe I might have time to get a TSO review out..hmmmm..nah Im too tired and need to catch some rest while I'm still at work :)
and besides Bond..James Bond is on zee tube....

Shark December 26 2005 3:49 AM EST

Bored? Listless? Help is at hand!
Pass away the pointless hours with our list of things to do when you're bored

Things you can do with absolutely nothing


Push your eyes for interesting light show
(Amusement Potential: 1-5 minutes)
See a variety of blobs, stars and flashes. Try to make out things your subconscious is trying to send you a message? Can you control what you see by pressing different areas with different forces? Would it be possible to somehow see the same effects on TV?

See how long you can hold your breath
(Amusement Potential: 4-20 minutes)
Not that much fun, but it sure passes the time. Play with a friend, or try to beat your own personal best. Some tips: hyperventilate before hand, and stay as still as possible. My personal best is 2:00 (exactly).

Try to not think about penguins
(Amusement Potential: 1-5 minutes)
This is especially hard, because by trying too much, you remember what you were trying to avoid thinking of. If you try too little, you end up thinking about penguins anyway.

Use your secret mind power
(Amusement Potential: 5-10 minutes)
Pick a passing by and try to use your mind power to command them do something, like drop their bag or knock into someone. The law of averages dictates that sooner or later one of your mind commands will come true, so you can convince yourself that you really have super human powers and waste even more time trying them out.

Scratch yourself
(Amusement Potential: 1-3 minutes)
Go ahead, scratch yourself now. Even if nothing itches, go ahead. Doesn't that feel pretty good?

Repeat the same word over and over until it loses its meaning
(Amusement Potential: 1-3 minutes)
Pick a random word out of a magazine and say it aloud to yourself until it becomes a meaningless set of noises.

Hurt yourself
(Amusement Potential: 1-3 minutes)
What is pain? Why is it unpleasant? There's nothing physical about it - it's all in your mind. Plus, after pinching yourself for awhile, boredom will seem nice next to being in pain.

Try to swallow your tongue
(Amusement Potential: 1-3 minutes)
There's not much to say about this one. It is possible.

Pretend to be a car
(Amusement Potential: 1-3 minutes)
Make appropriate revving noises in your head as you walk along and add a racing commentary as you pass strangers in the street. Use blinking eyes as indicators for extra authenticity.

Look at something for awhile, shut eyes, study after image
(Amusement Potential: 2-5 minutes)
Another great time waster. It takes about 30 seconds of staring to create an after image, and the image is then viewable for about the same length of time. Fun to combine this one with pushing on your eyes.

Get yourself as nauseated as possible
(Amusement Potential: 5-10 minutes)
Best achieved by looking straight up and spinning around. Try to be so dizzy you can't even stand up. This is also entertaining due to the "makes boredom seem a lot better"

trigun December 26 2005 4:40 AM EST

thats funny shark! =P

Moddin December 26 2005 5:58 AM EST

Reimplement cb1 yourself ...
that should keep you busy for some time.

Wasp December 26 2005 6:54 AM EST

Ah well, at least CB1 isn't full of weird people who feel they must voice *their* opinion in every matter! Heres where I would normally start a personal attack or 2, but... to be honest, thats not worth my time : ). Special J - ETA stands for "Estimated Time of Arrival" so your "smart-butt" remark isn't as smart as you think. Anyhow. One can hope it's up again soon.

TinTizzy December 26 2005 1:25 PM EST

you go wasp! WOOT

{cb1}Linguala December 27 2005 10:41 AM EST

how much longer do we have to wait :(
I need my shot of is starting to lose its meaning.
Please hurry, I see pink elephants staring at me...I'm scared.

AdminG Beee December 27 2005 10:58 AM EST

Things to do when CB1 is dead.

Multi hunt on CB2 :)

RAMPAGE December 27 2005 12:35 PM EST

Its Ok I'm almost done with the missle.
A few more days without CB1 and I'll finish the warhead and can start tonights plan to take over the world. =)

{CB1}Bio December 27 2005 12:45 PM EST

after a week there is still yet more to fix on cb2 that he cant fix cb1?

QBRanger December 27 2005 12:55 PM EST


It is all a matter of priorities.

{CB1}Bio December 27 2005 1:12 PM EST

ahh there we go truth is out. if we were told the truth from the beginning then i would have been fine.

Pysche December 27 2005 1:19 PM EST

Don't worry everyone, I keep hiding Rampages parts.
To-nights plan will not work either,Narf.

wldflr December 27 2005 1:22 PM EST

I guess the unspoken fear we all have of CB1 not coming back could very well be a reality. :(

Blarg December 27 2005 1:30 PM EST

"all"? I think not.

wldflr December 27 2005 1:31 PM EST

Ok, Blargy :p that many of us have

Blarg December 27 2005 1:34 PM EST

only the 170 people or so left who play CB1. Seems most of the others would rather see it die. I would actually prefer jon just tells us if he's ever planning on fixing it.

tscm December 27 2005 1:44 PM EST

Shark.... I love that list.. so much. =)

QBRanger December 27 2005 2:17 PM EST

I am beginning to think of cb1 as a rather long and involved Beta test of the cb generator/program.

Now that cb2 is on its way, the beta is no longer needed.

Personally, I have just about given up on cb1. If it comes up, great, but if not, then time for everyone to move on.

Pysche December 27 2005 3:28 PM EST

That is why it would be nice if Jon would just come out and tell us if CB1 is gone so we can get on with your lifes.( At least those of us who may have lifes) ;)

{cb1}Linguala December 27 2005 4:00 PM EST

yeah, some form of official statement whether or not cb1 is ever coming back online would be nice.
If you ask me, jon knows that there's a posibility that a number of us will quit playing cb all together.
Just maybe he cares enough for that not to happen?
Either way, ANY form of official statement about cb1 would be appreciated.

[Divine] Matt December 27 2005 5:18 PM EST

please tell us if cb1 is dead except giving us the *dead silence*
Routine i need to know for i can get rid of these worries.

QBRanger December 27 2005 5:47 PM EST

This should be the last post as Jon officially gave cb1 its walking papers.

TinTizzy December 27 2005 5:55 PM EST

man this sucks so bad god its tintizziy ok all you cb1 guys STAY IN TOUCH ok i wont quit because of you guys never got to 1 mil pr i hate this well this is it.

YOU December 27 2005 6:00 PM EST

i got to 1.2mil pr in cb1 without supportership hahahaha. I shall be missing my TOBF+1.

RAMPAGE December 27 2005 6:59 PM EST

So much for making Red Sox Nation the first single minion 4,000,000PR character.
<Long non-pg rant deleted in case I deside to come back here some day>

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 27 2005 7:11 PM EST

Why not follow through on your promise to keep it open as long as there was "a handful of people" playing?

Why NOW? What actual improvment with this make?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 27 2005 7:21 PM EST

I find it really confusing that it's possible this move was made to prevent further money exchange between cb's, when $US buying is all the rage...please clue me in...

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 27 2005 7:38 PM EST

Well since my other thread was nixed I'm assuming that no one (in power) wants to hear me anymore.

Special J December 27 2005 7:42 PM EST

Hear you repeating yourself over and over?

Of course no one wants to hear it.
