A blog about....well about....something. Really.
An Open Letter To Fellow Aquarium Owners
Let me be blunt: I can't keep playing to the limit daily.

I know lots of you have downgraded your tank during this sorry excuse for a Halloween "Event". And I understand why. Everyone's off spam posting in the event forum rather than playing aquariums. It doesn't make sense to keep your good fish in the tank when no one's playing.

What this means for players like me is that it takes more tanks to play to the limit. In a way, that's good, as I can help out more fellow owners that way.

In a bigger way, it's not so good. Because it does take more tanks. The 45 to 50 tanks it usually takes to hit the Booty Grab cap is about my limit.

I get bored. No, REALLY bored. To the point where I'd rather clean the microwave bored. To the point where it's mentally painful to keep playing. Not to mention physically.

It's stupid to do this when I really don't give a damn about the gold. I can't keep the aquarium community going all by myself, and some nights, that's pretty much what it feels like.

So I'm going to play when I can, and work very hard not to worry about it when I can't. I, too, deserve a life.

    I agree with you. We're humans after all.

    The defenders of this current leadership claim that you can't buy anything not because of Flynn's Booty. No, no.
    But because you don't play the games everyday (BG, zOMG and etc). emotion_smilies/icon_facepalm.gif

    They claim that if you play BG for 7 days it's 100*7= 700k per week, which's more than enough to compensate the inflation according to them.

    Problem is, nobody has this kind of free time they have. Unless you're a robot.

    And once you play games with a "mercenary" mentality, only seeking the prizes and gold, and not because you like it, you don't see this game as a distraction but as just another busy work. emotion_smilies/icon_facepalm.gif

    I'd love to know what "mathematicians" think that 700k/week if you play BG to the limit daily equals one booty that gives 1M+.

    They're apparently setting up Gaia so either you have to play all the games to their limits daily (i.e. spend ALL your time here), or GIV THEM MONEEZ. There's no room for a middle class any more - there will be haves, and have nots.

    I agree - if you don't enjoy the games for what they are, they're a chore, they're a job, and why would anyone spend their real time and real effort on a job that doesn't pay in real money - just fake money you can use to rent pixels? Pixels and Gaia Gold don't pay the rent.

    lol yeah. But I properly fixed my comment up there.

    I was meant to write that, according to them, if you play Booty Grab for 7 days (a whole week), reaching the gold cap (which is 100k), you can get 700k in a week.
    Play it for more a week, you get 1.400 mil and so on.

    But even so, their logic is still ridiculously flawed: no human being has the patience and free time to do such ludicrous task.
    You can do this once in a while but the whole week ? Playing the exactly same game over and over again ? That's ridiculous.
    I'd rather go for cheap "alternative" items (be they from gold shops or not) than risking wasting time on a pointless quest.

    That's what I'm talking about: games are supposed to entertain you, to distract you, to make you escape from the real world and even blow off some steam. Not as a pointless "free job". AFAIK, nobody likes to work for free like a slave.

    And to make matters worse, Switchem is gone. However, you can still access it by the following link: http://www.gaiaonline.com/launch/switchem?
