Like, I completely understand Larri and Chuck shutting down. It does encourage other forms of roleplay to find a living. But what I don't understand why the scrounger market and factory line shut down too?
The scroungers going silent is the worst too because if you're playing a fixer, suddenly you have three markets black balling you "until Friday". That means they won't talk to you about what they want to find, nor will they accept items from you even if they were asking for it seconds earlier. Dude looks like he's going through horrible withdrawal, you're holding his candy in your hand, and you get "No Sonny, you've done enough for the streets already, you let the other scamps get me that sweet high. Come back on Friday."
And with them not telling you what they want until Friday, suddenly there goes a part of a fixer's job. I have not a clue what anybody wants anymore, and suddenly you start developing a reputation from "The guy who always knows what you want" to "The guy who gets blackballed by the entirety of Withmore City every week".
All because I delivered too many courier packages?
Also, please stop the Blackballing system from denying us work on the factory lines and typing "work" every 9 minutes. We're not there because we want to be there. We really are that desperate to afford another night in a cube. Just because we had the flash three days ago doesn't mean we've got it now.
