wow, Thats impressive. I've never seen it done in any scenario. Now we have seen it for classic, I wonder if it can be done in the other 2.
these are valid questions and I'm sorry to say, these things do happen. Some people would rather play by their own rules and do their own thing. As for joining an association, there are definite drawbacks to being a solo player. Certain things that you can only get from being in an association. As a chair myself, if I see people in my association not helping the city or the association, I message them, if they do not respond, I remove them. If they are in it just for themselves, I remove them. I'm not a harsh chair, in fact, I'm very relaxed but we have rules in order to help us be the best. We dont have a lot of politics.
Now, your final question regarding Carreer Engine- that is a tough one and its all in what you want your CE to be able to do first. I did some in each category to start with then focused on which Eras I could haul in, that way, even if it isnt the fastest train, it is still always useful.
I'm sorry but I'm going to have to agree with Lord Ocryd, although I'll be nice about it. I have found that Rail Nation is not a game that people just do one round and leave. Those who do that, rarely return. In most cases, people get with a group of people they like and build from there. Sure, over time some drift off to other teams, form teams of their own, etc. But most stick with the game because of the friends they have made. Teams evolve from round to round and even I myself am always looking to the next round to implement changes in the team. Rail Nation is all about the long game and the teams that win have worked hard to build a team capable of winning. Your suggestion to limit choices of where to start are made moot anyway since with the last update, we can now sign up for our team in the next round once we reach End Game. My suggestion to you is to either start building your team up in your region and start thinking about what its going to take to dethrone the top teams or contact one of the top teams and try to arrange an invite. For the record, I am a top team leader on one server and a new member on another so I do see both sides to this.
I have played this game for quite a while and I enjoy seeing the new changes. I have primarily been playing on Classic servers the whole time but just recently started playing SOE and I play both on PC as well as Mobile. In talking with several people in COM3 Smoke Chamber it was pretty much a general agreement that while we dearly love the Classic scenario, some of the features of SOE which are also seen on Classic when using Mobile would be awesome on the PC version. Mostly what we would like to see is the schedule assistant. This makes moving trains around so much easier. SOE and the Mobile App are just so much more intuitive. Thank you.
Lord Ocryd, your feedback is always appreciated and thank you for bringing this to the attention of all. Have you sent a trouble ticket in yet for this issue? The developers are constantly at work, doing their best to improve the game and fix bugs, however, sometimes, the upgrades do have curious effects on existing coding and they wont know theirs an issue if you dont send it through the proper channels.Thank you.
You know it
It's my boy, CW. If it makes you feel better, the exact same thing happened to me. It did iron itself out but it was annoying.
Where do we find the strategy threads?
I'm not seeing much here about advanced game play strategy. Am I not looking in the right place?
not sure I have seen any threads on advanced strategies, however, I have always found it best to ask specific questions, either in game or on forum. Rail Nation is one of the most cordial games I've ever played and people in game tend to be very helpful.
Tracks are not individually priced. The more track you lay, the more it costs until you cap out at 2.5 million per track. I believe this is reached at track 75. However, when you connect track leading to a new city, you will be charged an additional fee for connecting to that city. I hope this helps.
