Re: Bigger station or multiple station in same city ?

First, stay on subject in this thread. An admittance on another one has nothing to do with this one. Don't do that in a multiplayer game please. That said, clearly you could own 4 stations in one city right? But that's dumb, as again, you can route even 16 trains into ONE station, and you'll make w...

Re: Bigger station or multiple station in same city ?

First, I just admitted being wrong -about the spammer. I never had a problem admitting I was wrong, that was, and clearly still is.... You. This also reveals who is actually humble and who is not. And no, the subject was TWO stations, so your point is moot. Again, you need to have at least need a ki...

Re: Bigger station or multiple station in same city ?

That is not screaming.... That is making a point, the point being that it is best to buy all three competitors than try to attempt to get 16 trains running thru one station. And, once you buyout the other three, you have won..... tell me, why do you call that dumb? We both know you lack the credent...

Re: Bigger station or multiple station in same city ?

There are two answers here. But they each answer a more specific question: Are you trying to just have fun, and have 2 stations (or 8 tracks) for fun? Or are you trying to maximize profit? If you are trying to maximize profit, you wouldn't want more than 3 or 4 tracks in a station-as you'd be compet...

Re: How to Spot Someone using the Worst Cheat of all:The Tra

out of sync is fun. I had 8/10 of my competitor's stock, and when I brought one extra to 9/10, he got booted out. what happened was the lag caused the competitor to not register a sale of their stock earlier, so their computer had 9/10 when my computer only had 8/10. so when I brought his stock to ...

Re: Multi-Player Rule Systems

Also, blowing up factories is indeed ruthless. It is not however comparable to getting a trainer program, or the online lag glitch. Rather, it would be comparable to ruthless strategy-like building the same industry closer-and thus making their industry worthless-same outcome as "blowing it up." So ...

Re: Multi-Player Rule Systems

its a free world, there are no rules. Its the most ruthless, efficient, deceptive player that wins. All the Robber Barons in the game made their way to the top like that. John D. Rockefeller even blew up his competitor's factories back then to ensure monopoly. None of the Robber Barons had somethin...

Re: How to Spot Someone using the Worst Cheat of all:The Tra

Just caught the same guy doing it again under the name "RocknRoll". It appeared he could turn it on and off. One minute, his cash would be -$900,000, the next it would go back to normal to say $135,000. And ironic enough-he accidentally admitted it by saying "it says I have $2,800,000 on my screen"....

Additional Variations to Rule Systems: These are variations to the current rule systems that allow for an additional twist or element that changes the dynamics of the game. 1/ "Fierce Bidding" I recently read on here somewhere (a post by Robinhood02) about an interesting variation that sounded like...

How to Spot Someone using the Worst Cheat of all:The Trainer

I am finding an increasing number of players online that have found and use a Trainer Program that works for online play. I just played a guy that was using one. 1/ It is very likely that at the beginning of the game, or whenever they activate the Trainer Program, it will give the "Out of Sync" mess...
