I have a proposal for a new game. When you get to the equator, post your card inventory! Who ever is deemed to have the best inventory gets a swift kick in the ass.

I think Is best the sum of official cards prices.
It's interesting also for future behavior about purchasing cards...
Interesting also the number of Programmation and Ausosail cards.

Proposal:

- Programmations
- Autosails
- Sum of official price

Both of them are not too useful for that leg (in my opinion of course). Since it was developed, this game always tolerated people with a lot of time to spend in it. Old type autosail/autopilot system do help, but it still was not enough to be at the top. With new card system, you will need probably hundreds of "programmation" cards to free some time, but it will not keep it at the top 150, lets say.

True.
But are the only you can need to purchase...

Got that already a few times....on the Mini, where prog are totally useless, I have already 23 prog cards! You should be able to decide wheter of not you want to keep them. Interestingly enough, somebody that only used the credits initially given could win on the Mini.

Do they pay something for "weather"? I've got more than 20 already. :) I think I will dye as dreamer...

Buy-back price was 5 credits flat rate last time around.

To be fair, I did cross the equator one barrel ago (3 waypoints and a stealth if I remember correctly).

One first conclusion: VR is giving us too little "help" cards. At least they recognize those are the most useless, taking into account the aberration of the suggested routes..lol
Post by iconPost by Muikku | 2017-11-13 | 12:50:57
Muikku
2 Help
16 Weather
18 Autosails
25 Waypoints
7 Programmation
10 Stealth Mode

Not much use for any cards just now. The lottery has given me a lot of weather and stealth, neither of which I use. I could use more programmation, let's see what the lottery provides.

18 x Help

Crossed a few hours ago in both races but haven't used any cards in either VOR or TJV since. Stash on hand is:
VOR
11 Help
22 Weather
14 Autosail
10 Waypoint
12 Programming
7 Stealth
Total 76
TJV
4 Help
24 Weather
11 Autosail
19 Waypoint
8 Programming
8 Stealth
Total 74
I regularly miss staying up just to get my 3rd set of the day. I have yet to even think about using any Help, Weather or Stealth cards. I have used a few programming & Autosail cards, and managed to get through a couple of 'limited access/crew off-watch' periods using waypoints without feeling I was giving up too much ;)
