Scheduled server maintenance / [Finished] Update to 1.9.3
« Last post by Chucky on September 29, 2019, 12:23:33 pm »

[11:55] Starting of shutdown at all servers
[12:44] #1 & #2 done
[12:51] #4 & #6 done
[13:01] #7 done
[13:04] #9 & #10 done
[18:46] #3 done
[18:49] #x1 to #x5 done

[19:36] #8 done
[19:48] Finished. All servers are working normally.
Server 8 is like my 3rd favorite N-ice server, after x3, and s5 (though s5, only recently this year, due to being unable to connect to s8 regularly; especially after 2037).

Having played : N-ice for approximately 4 years, I've seen many players take steps to win games on this server.  Their steps aren't necessarily skill based, more so connection based.

Currently (as in the time of this poll) i don't bother even starting games on s8, due to option 4.  Whilst this isn't against the rules, it does present itself as a problem hence this poll.

In the past I've been disconnected here due to option 1, 2, 3 and 4; the number of players in my opinion makes little difference pending what they actually do.

What it comes down to, is internet speed (sorry to say); since the game is free, i would expect the internet connection used to connect to it would be of similar value, for it is mine.  My internet is free, so it makes sense to me, that i use my free internet to connect to a free game.  But....  Others it seems have invested in better internet connections, and as such are able to ramp up what they can build on this server at the expense of others inferior connections.
Like i said my internet is free: using my internet connection is as follows: 
PING: 25 ms
DOWNLOAD Mbps: 6.35
UPLOAD Mbps: 0.78

My connection is adequate for everything i do on the internet except playing on server 8...  I suspect others to dwarf these figures, and as such take advantage.

This company i've seen around, and usually abuses rule 3, today no different, abusing rule 3.

I have signed his rule breaks, 3 times, before posting here, where upon each time they've either changed the sign or deleted it... (i know it doesn't matter post sign creation though).

I enclose a screenshot, and hope that they can be identified.

oh this is on server 5, btw.

As per my recent shoutbox entry: i won a game of s5, i was logged in, speaking using my logged in name, and yet, didn't score when logged in, when i won the game.

Also as no-one else was registered i can't pin point the exact time of game, aside to say i went to bed at around 1000 GMT, and got back at 1600 GMT today, when upon a new game has started, and the console informs me that i didn't score (as per picture).
Complaints / NeVaDa revenge rule breaker.

This players been around for a while now, so should have read the rules by now.

Playing on x2, they decide to surround every iron (steel being the goal) mine with reservations, which i summarily called an admin for and Knogle did his thing, and removed them.

Later, NeVaDa, decides to take my steel, and then promptly leave the game, to avoid any repercussions it seems...

See screenshot.

That's good to know. I knew not to monopolise but wasn't aware it didn't apply to primary industries. Thanks for clarifying!

Yes, the iron mines limitation does it make it harder, but as we all should know, iron is a primary industry and thus primaries are shareable @ N-ice.  A lot of players try not to share with others, myself included, but if there were a scenario in x2 where 2 or more players had a realistic chance of winning it, they'd have to share.  Therefore if a dispute occurs, an admin should be called via sign as per usual and the problem sorted soon after..
