Amulet of Junction 15 96 84.4%

If you need a link, its in the community section to the left.

QBRanger May 12 2009 5:15 PM EDT

I believe we should have a discussion on this rather than vote like lemmings.

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] May 12 2009 5:20 PM EDT

I thought the point of this IS to get people to vote like lemmings, because otherwise nobody votes at all, and the BMVG goes to waste.

FailBoat[SG] May 12 2009 5:21 PM EDT

Exactly Verifex. The reason Ranger wishs for us to vote out a SF is due to his current need for one.

Fatil1ty May 12 2009 5:23 PM EDT

NO body needs an AoJ! go rent one!. The game gets brutally stagnant when it costs 1.5M to buy a tat (7.5 USD).

besides it's ironic that people are voting for the AoJ when nobody has freaking familiars.

sheesh people vote for familiiars.

FailBoat[SG] May 12 2009 5:27 PM EDT

I need an AoJ. Among others. But I guess we're nobody, right Fatality?

Fatil1ty May 12 2009 5:28 PM EDT

rent one...there are 10 in rentals.

three4thsforsaken May 12 2009 6:12 PM EDT

I would have to go with fatality. How many weeks now have we just voted for AoJ?

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] May 12 2009 6:20 PM EDT

There's a difference between Renting an item necessary to your strat, and owning it.

Maybe if all those hording AoJ's sold them instead, it would be a different matter...

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] May 12 2009 6:21 PM EDT

Also, I see 4 in Rentals, not 10, and none of them are +10, so only junction at 90%.

I suppose you could always name someones rental, but then you could send me the $5 instead.

QBJohnnywas May 12 2009 6:26 PM EDT

There are 75 AoJs in the game. We definitely need more of them.

There are 186 steel familiars out there. Maybe those who want one aren't asking loud enough.

three4thsforsaken May 12 2009 6:47 PM EDT

So the solution to this is to vote AoJ straight for the next 2 or 3 months?

QBRanger May 12 2009 6:53 PM EDT

Well one would think that after the AoJ spawns, the next item with the most votes get the BMVG seal of approval.

So whether it is a compound bow or Mithril Cuirass, it automatically gets the top ranking.

Total garbage.

Fatil1ty May 12 2009 7:02 PM EDT

oh and GL. that 10 AoJ number includes the ones currenlty rented

QBJohnnywas May 12 2009 7:11 PM EDT

I think it says enough that some of the people voting for AoJ are people currently renting them. They're obviously keen to own them.

QBRanger May 12 2009 7:32 PM EDT

And those that need familiars will vote for them.

[P]Mitt May 12 2009 7:35 PM EDT

When did the BMVG change from votes in the thread to votes in the black market?

FailBoat[SG] May 12 2009 7:36 PM EDT

When people stopped voting Mitt. It has had to change due to the lack of interaction and more of a forced lemming system.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] May 12 2009 7:42 PM EDT

So whether it is a compound bow or Mithril Cuirass, it automatically gets the top ranking.

I would hardly compare an AoJ too a MC or a compound bow o.O.

[P]Mitt May 12 2009 8:12 PM EDT

Well then, I'll start voting again. I vote for spellboosters.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- May 12 2009 8:36 PM EDT

zzzZzZ Considering I see maybe 5 people trying very actively to buy BoM, and none spawning, and no one willing to sell theirs, I will be continuing to put my votes there.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 12 2009 9:14 PM EDT

I like Lemmings.

QBRanger May 12 2009 9:20 PM EDT

I don't. Like free will better.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 12 2009 9:23 PM EDT

Come on Ranger; Let them eat AoJ.

Wizard'sFirstRule May 12 2009 10:44 PM EDT

I hate this BMVG system. It active encourage people to vote for their preferred item instead of going with the flow. If I want a lesser electric familiar, and I vote AoJ, LEF isn't likely to be top vote. So in order to get my LEF, I want to NOT vote AoJ, and vote LEF instead, so everyone who wants something votes whatever they want => System breakdown!!!.

DoS May 12 2009 11:49 PM EDT

The best way would be a weekly poll. One that one of the admins could put up. That's just my thought though.

QBRanger May 13 2009 12:36 AM EDT

Great idea.

Make it on Sunday night before the BM votes become available.

AdminNightStrike May 13 2009 12:49 AM EDT

The BMVG system, like many systems on CB, work much better with many more active users.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] May 13 2009 3:11 AM EDT

"And those that need familiars will vote for them."

So the push to vote for the AoJ (I'm sure you were one of the people pushing voting for them Ranger) was ok until you no longer needed one?

Now it's vote for what I want, or your using a silly voting system.

I need a RoBF. Let's all vote for one of those instead. I also need a Corn, and some Spellboosters. We can Vote for your SF after. That cool?

QBJohnnywas May 13 2009 3:16 AM EDT

If somebody wants to take on the Black Market Vote - that is organising the vote, carrying out the posting then I'll use my vote whichever way that posting takes me, as I'm sure many of us do and have been doing for quite some time now.

If anybody disagrees with it then take it on yourselves. The people who have been carrying out their voting quietly, consistently over the years will no doubt continue to do so, just at the prompting of whatever voting guide exists.

To make anything spawn with the amount of votes necessary for most items we need to vote en masse lemming style otherwise it doesn't happen.

Amulet of Junction 26 96 72.9%

Just keep voting, Just keep voting.

Roll over the hill!

BHT May 13 2009 11:35 AM EDT

Halidon Familiar 6 49 87.8%

I want this!

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 13 2009 11:36 AM EDT

Sayonara, BMVG.

QBRanger May 13 2009 11:39 AM EDT

Do you see more FS posts wanting a AoJ or a familiar?

I see hardly a one for a AoJ now. Before I saw quite a few.

Times have changed. I do not care if a SF gets spawned after 10 different familiars. But I see all the posts in the forums wanting a familiar with 4-5 bumps. I see that as a problem.

So GL, time to stop saying this is all about me. Spawn a SF in a year, I do not care. But there are plenty of people needing a HF or RBF who cannot find one. I think that is more important than spawning another AoJ given there are quite a few in rentals, and hardly a post wanting to buy one.


QBRanger May 13 2009 11:42 AM EDT

But to blindly say we are voting for xxx due to the fact it has the most votes is sheer madness.

Why not ask the community what they really need? I see the need for familiars far more than an AoJ or SB or a corn. Just look at the FS/WTB threads and see for yourself before you attack me for being selfish.

Being a Lemming is great, if your a lemming. Not if your a human.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 13 2009 11:43 AM EDT

No one noticed my obscure capitalization! I was, sort of, you know, referencing the game. Not the animal.

QBRanger May 13 2009 11:44 AM EDT

I still do not get it.

But I have been the sharpest tack in the box.

Mesoshort May 13 2009 11:47 AM EDT

Call me crazy, but I don't want to rent an AoJ, why would someone buy one just to rent it out?! I can't name it that way if I wanted to. I voted AoJ and will next week.

QBRanger May 13 2009 11:48 AM EDT

Never played.

So back to the BMVG:

I guess then after the AoJ spawns we go after the SoD as it has the next highest votes, then the BoM, then a pair of SB?

And those that need familiars should just sit and wait till all those spawn? As they do have more votes than any familiar right now?

That is madness.

What about actually asking the community what they want? Instead of again being a blind lemming.

QBRanger May 13 2009 11:51 AM EDT

I understand Meso.

However what does more good for the community as a whole?

1 more AoJ when there are a few in rentals?

Or more familiars when there are plenty of FS posts urgently seeking one out?

Have you tried posting an attempt to buy an AoJ?

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 13 2009 11:53 AM EDT

I agree with Ranger. (My mantra in life).
We should have a "BMVG Discussion Thread", everyone once in a while.
Presto! Problem solved! Now onto the economy...

QBRanger May 13 2009 12:00 PM EDT

And let me yet again state:

I would like a SF. However, I did not vote for a SF or ask people to vote for one.

I voted for a HF, and next time will vote for a RBF or HF or RoS if that is what is needed more.

This is not about me, or what I personally want/need. It is about what is good for the community and I see the need for more base tattoos, moreso than another AoJ or SoD.

If you disagree with me, great. But do not attack me personally for it.

If you want to have a poll, outstanding.

Soxjr May 13 2009 12:06 PM EDT

Just to chime in on this. I am sorry but the base tattoo's are for strat changes... but in the case of an AoJ that is a strat maker. Before the change to make junction an amulet a person could have had the strat forever and now can't make it work. I see those as being a big difference. I got my AoJ but I understand how people that are wanting one don't want to rent forever. So in their mind getting an item that is NEEDED to make their strat work is a bit more important than getting base tattoo's to try a new strat .. Just personally I think those can wait since your current set up still works as opposed to a person needing an AoJ to make theirs work at all. Just my opinion, but I think I will start using my votes again and as long as people continue to need an AoJ will vote for them, until I see people getting them just to rent them more.

QBJohnnywas May 13 2009 12:20 PM EDT

"but in the case of an AoJ that is a strat maker."

Spot on Sox.

Mesoshort May 13 2009 12:29 PM EDT

And the reason I didn't post a WTB AoJ is because of the Black Market votes so I can get it from the auctioneer instead of from people who bought them just for sheer profit. Granted the person who bought it when I was bidding it is using the amulet, but the point is I don't want to buy it/rent it from the money-mongers. =P

http://www.carnageblender.com/gc/view-one.tcl?classified_ad_id=125059

QBRanger May 13 2009 12:34 PM EDT

Then we as a community need to agree on spawning nothing other than AoJ's until everyone that wants one needs one.

Mesoshort May 13 2009 12:39 PM EDT

Eh, there will never be a resolution. As long as people want one, they will vote for them, if others want to vote to spawn them as well, they will. If not, vote for what you want. Demand right now is favoring one or two items (from what I have read in this thread) and unfortunately it's not familiars at this point.

QBRanger May 13 2009 12:41 PM EDT

I do think there is a nice demand for familiars. At least from what I have seen in the FS threads.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] May 13 2009 2:09 PM EDT

There are currently 1149 'Greater' Familiars in CB.

There are currently 75 AoJ to allow those to be junctioned.

That means 6.5% of all the familiars in the game can currently be used to the best of thier ability.

Looks like Hal or BoM judging by the non AoJ votes :)

I'd like to suggest spawning two Hals, one after the other. Why? Well, there's certainly no self-interest in this, since I really don't need a Hal.

Rather, the number of votes to spawn a Hal is half of the number we normally consider to be realistic, so realistically, we should spawn two.

What do you lot think?

Admiralkiller May 25 2009 10:44 AM EDT

Yea!!! my vote was the vote that spawned the AoJ!

blackshadowshade May 25 2009 10:45 AM EDT

I'll post up a new BMVG, with my idea repeated.
