Should I quit? (in General)


SBW September 2 2006 3:18 PM EDT

Please give me reasons to why I should and shouldn't. That'll add to my decision

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] September 2 2006 3:19 PM EDT

First, before the Great CB community begs for you to stay.


What are your current reasons for leaving and staying?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] September 2 2006 3:20 PM EDT

Nope, because I said so.

th00p September 2 2006 3:21 PM EDT

No! Even though you should change your name back it's great having you around! =) it would be said to see you go....

Thrasher September 2 2006 3:21 PM EDT

Why do you need our opinion? if you feel that CB sucks now and wonna leave then leave.

SBW September 2 2006 3:22 PM EDT

leaving-
1. econ is totally whack because of auction rares... MC's for 100k (pathetic)
2. the people aren't friendly anymore
3. chat's dead
4. friends are all gone
5. NUB noobs passing all vets
6. all admins do now is sit around quiet..
7. it's just not fun anymore

staying-
1. friends i have left
2. building my character
3. paying off my 610k debt (but i think glowie would rather keep my ELB)
4. hanging around

QBJohnnywas September 2 2006 3:22 PM EDT

No.

SBW September 2 2006 3:24 PM EDT

i mean.. remember the day base BoTh's went for 6m?!?

PirateKing September 2 2006 3:29 PM EDT

"i mean.. remember the day base BoTh's went for 6m?!?"


Indeed I do.

I also remember the days when whoever had the best camping bots had a stranglehold on anything better than paper mache' armor and butter-knife weapons.

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] September 2 2006 3:31 PM EDT

Because of this reason

7. it's just not fun anymore

I won't ask that you stay because you shouldn't. If that is how you feel, then why do ask us to convince you otherwise? If the game isn't fun, simply don't play it.

So, I won't waste any of my time asking you to stay when your mind is already set to leave.

SBW September 2 2006 3:33 PM EDT

i didn't use a bot o.O

leon- it can be fun, if things change a bit!
the people change
the community
the game maybe..

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] September 2 2006 3:36 PM EDT

that was another game SBW...

Things have changed, and people have left, but I still haven't found as well structured a system for gaming that wouldn't require an 8 hour a day commitment. The economics of the game have lost a lot of luster that was so exciting, but I don't think we are beyond the point of no return. The auctions system needs some serious help, the introduction of cental bank bidding hasn't had the desired effect (in my stupid opinion), and in fact has encouraged sniping, and discouraged bidding. A consignment style store system seems far better suited to our current community, allowing folks to set the price they want, and wait for a willing buyer. NW-PR may have killed the rares market, but it's the auctions that are continuing to choke the last breath from what was once a very interesting merchant class.

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] September 2 2006 3:37 PM EDT

I can't speak about the people because i'm rarely in chat. The community in the forums aspect seem great, imo.

Doesn't the game change every 3 months now? In fact, this is the only game i know that changes the game play frequently.

SBW September 2 2006 3:38 PM EDT

hmmm. I want to hear Jon's opinion

AdminNightStrike September 2 2006 3:41 PM EDT

"If that is how you feel, then why do ask us to convince you otherwise?"

Because he doesn't want to feel that way. He's asking for help in finding something to enjoy about CB now that all the stuff he previously enjoyed is gone. For instance, consider a playground where the proprietors take away the swing set. The swing set kids then need to find another part of the playground that is enjoyable. You find great enjoyment in the see-saw. He's asking you to help him see the fun in the see-saw.

SBW September 2 2006 3:45 PM EDT

Thank you NS

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] September 2 2006 4:00 PM EDT

Well if you want to be interested in my "see saw" then you have to try a few others first.

Maybe you should take a short break and try out other games. Then you'll realize you've taken a few things about this game for granted. I have played many other Online games. None of which are as great as this one.

You think this community is bad. Have you played Runescape?
You also think that the game may need a change. I both disagree and agree with that. CB is known for changing Alot in game play. In almost any other game, the "story" is set. The code has been made and is rarely altered unless it's to fix exploits. In other games, How often are you able to suggest something to make the game better and have that idea been taking into consideration? Maybe you could explain Exactly what you meant by changing the game.

SBW September 2 2006 4:03 PM EDT

i hate the aution-rare system and central bank idea.

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] September 2 2006 4:51 PM EDT

If you still sign on that says to me you still like the game of course thats from a noob!

SBW September 2 2006 5:00 PM EDT

i need something to do, I quit playing conquer, i quit halo pc..

QBOddBird September 2 2006 5:01 PM EDT

leaving-
1. econ is totally whack because of auction rares... MC's for 100k (pathetic)

Econ's not out of whack, everything just isn't the price you want it to be.

2. the people aren't friendly anymore

I'm not friendly??

3. chat's dead

That depends entirely upon what time you are in it.

4. friends are all gone

I'm not friendly, AND I'm not you friend? Sheesh. I feel so loved.

5. NUB noobs passing all vets

Not all the vets - and how can you complain about that when you've got the availability of the NCB, the experience of being a Vet, and the time to have made enough $$$ to create an NCB?

6. all admins do now is sit around quiet..

Nah, they're still active and fun. There's just only 4 left.

7. it's just not fun anymore

If you don't think it is fun, don't play. What kind of person plays a game they don't think is fun? I was here entirely for the chat for quite some time.

SBW September 2 2006 5:04 PM EDT

yeah, but you're sexy OB, everyone likes you :) I'm hated

QBRanger September 2 2006 5:13 PM EDT

Stay or quit:

It should be your decision.

Is the time you put into cb2 worth the return, that is do you enjoy your time on CB2?

If not, then leave.

We all need to make these decisions personally and not ask others if staying or going is right for them

I personally would like to see you stay, but if your not happy with cb2, then a break might be in order.

SBW September 2 2006 5:47 PM EDT

what do you think about me leaving or not jibbie?

AdminNightStrike September 2 2006 6:06 PM EDT

"You think this community is bad. Have you played Runescape?"

See my post titled "Why CB is better than Runescape"


After reading this post, I'm reminded of a song... anyone want ot guess which one?

Ox [StephenMelinda Gates Fund] September 2 2006 7:01 PM EDT

yeah go for it, quit if you feel like. see ya later.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 2 2006 7:05 PM EDT

"yeah, but you're sexy OB, everyone likes you :) I'm hated"

Now that's just untrue...

Well, the bit about OB is correct. ;)

Blue Funks can ruin anyones day, I suffer from them, I think everyone does. Sleep on things, they're usually much better after a good nights sleep. And drop me a CM in the morning. :)

UncleKracker September 2 2006 7:14 PM EDT

No S Beee W don't quit !!! You're sooooo cool, I don't know if CB could handle you leaving. We can change I swear, just pleeease give us another chance.

Quick everyone, tell him how great he is and beg him to stay.

Man I hate these posts.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 September 2 2006 7:17 PM EDT

Jibfest:
from: Help! ---> Wall of Rememberance

PK a.k.a. PirateKing... an old CB'er(CB1 user id #662) that not many others will remember. Great player though. Noted mostly for talking in bizarre Piratelike phraseology in chat. Conducted the first weekly "Carnage Blender NFL Pool" in 2002. Apparently back now.

By camping bots, I assume he means the bots people used to have before the store had bot checks : )


at SBW: it is ultimately your choice, however...

you should at least wait till the end of the month to make up your mind, it is a change month : )

SBW September 2 2006 7:28 PM EDT

yep :)

Negator September 2 2006 9:08 PM EDT

5. NUB noobs passing all vets

I cannot believe this attitude still persists. (And to save you the trouble of looking, I am just coming to the end of my NUB, and yes, I passed a few vets on the way up.)

On the one hand, you are complaining about people being unfriendly, on the other you resent the fact that a new player can (with four months hard work) actually get their name up in lights. I just cannot fathom the logic of that.

Sure, get rid of the NUB. Then see what sort of retention rate you get out of new players. You will get the pleasure of a top seat on a scoreboard populated by an ever-decreasing circle of veterans. I am sure that will be a fun experience that will keep you interested in CB for years to come.

The NUB was one of the biggest factors for my sticking to CB for 4 months (which for internet gaming is a fairly long time). My reason for quitting the game I played before this was that I had NO hope of ever catching up with people that joined even a week before me.

Sorry if I am sounding, in your terms, "unfriendly". I do not mean to be, and I do hope you stay. I intend to stay also, though I will be online less. So, the vets that still play actively can reclaim the position on the scoreboard that I am usurping. :)

[The Wretched]Freekie [Lower My Fees] September 3 2006 12:26 AM EDT

Just stay because i came back :)

SBW September 3 2006 12:32 AM EDT

who are you?

[The Wretched]Freekie [Lower My Fees] September 3 2006 12:34 AM EDT

Just a random person... dont mind me :(

Nixon Jibfest September 3 2006 12:56 AM EDT

Real life is better. CB is a good distraction as long as you don't make it your life. IMHO.

Phrede September 3 2006 3:27 AM EDT

If you stay there could be trouble - but if you go there could be double :)

AdminNightStrike September 3 2006 3:31 AM EDT

Score one for Freed! hahaha... You got it!

PirateKing September 3 2006 3:40 AM EDT

"hmmm.... curious..."A member of Carnage Blender 2 since December 30, 2005."


hmmm.... curious...Someone who tries to be clever but fails to check the complete background of the person he quotes.

Flamey September 3 2006 4:05 AM EDT

ask yourself, the decision is yours not ours.

AdminShade September 3 2006 9:19 AM EDT

If you really want to leave, then go.

But if you somehow still want to stay, then stay.

If you are not sure, it is better to stay and finish than to leave and longing to come back.

SBW September 3 2006 4:03 PM EDT

I've made up my mind. I've decided to stay for now, until something else happens, then I'll reconsider.

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] September 3 2006 10:22 PM EDT

Good to hear.

:-)

I am scared that you even asked.

drudge September 5 2006 4:41 PM EDT

good to see you stay!

Morthak September 14 2006 12:32 PM EDT

I am certain that you should quit. You have made the wrong decision to stay, and you will regret it every day for the rest of your life.

Mooohahahaha
