But, you do now know there is lag. Everyone knows now that it does take a few seconds between menus. Plan for this?
Of course, and as I said, I now plan accordingly and do everything backward.
I'm not the issue here though, am I? The question is, did the OP know that he should wait for a full ACK from the server after each and every interaction, or was he in a rush like I was to get out of the boring stuff and back to enjoying the game?
Seriously, I don't see why people are acting like the guy is a complete waste of human life because he came here asking a question after losing an item he worked hard for. Just move on if you are that angry other people exist and make mistakes. You are as cold as SE is with that attitude.
this. i was hastily tyring to sell and go back to enjoing my game
also rs i sent a gm ticket but i fully expect it to be a "its your fault there's nothing we can do there's muli confirmations" ect Edited, Oct 13th 2010 11:01am by Galkaholics
Slow down, this is not a race, it's a game. If you sell your stuff faster then the next person does that make you infinitely better? Evidently not, because now you have to go back and work to get that item that you accidentally sold back.
Where in his entire post did you get the idea that he thought selling things to an NPC faster made him better than someone else? He said he made a mistake because of the lag, which incidentally IS mostly SE's responsibility, and asked if there was any way to correct it.
How you raise your children is your business - please don't let that carry over into your dealings with other adults on these forums. No one is here looking for a father figure, and this guy was just looking for a buyback feature.
That right there. It explains that he in fact was in a hurry to sell his stuff to get back to other parts of the game.
I'm not mad or vicious, and hold no angst against OP for any reason. I just found the quote where he was blaming SE for his selling something too fast to be beyond reasonable.
If a crack head asked me for money, and I said yes 3 times and gave him money, I couldn't have him arrested for stealing my money. I may not have known he was a crackhead, but I still did what I did.
The whole point I'm trying to make is, you screwed up, you pay the price. We all have done it. Don't expect SE to pat you on the back and say "It's ok, here you go buddy". They shouldn't have to. It's not about poor support, as they said they're working on fixing lag, it's about responsibility. People need to accept their end if they want the game designer to live up to theirs.
