Not spending UE
Is it okay?

Hey everyone,

Those of us that came up in the Mix trained ourselves to spend our UE the moment we had enough to raise the next stat or skill. This could mean the difference between life and death.

There are some folks in the game that don't face life or death on a daily basis (lookin' at you, corpies). I've noticed that a bunch of folks in the game have tons of unspent UE. There are various reasons for this, and many of them are IC and acceptable. However, differentiating between those with good reasons for not spending their UE (nothing to spend it on because they don't have a stat or skill they are ICly developing) and those that are hoarding UE so they can become a bad ass overnight in whatever skill they need to survive some encounter, is difficult and time consuming.

I'm considering capping the amount of unspent UE a player can have at 250. At which point they would not accrue new ue until they spent below 250. This would mean that if you are at 250 unspent ue you are effectively not going to be granted anymore, until you are below 250.

This would seem to solve the issue of folks not spending their UE and then becoming bad ass, while at the same time letting folks that are less concerned about UE, not have to explain their actions to the admin.

Thoughts?

I agree.

Holy shit there are people with that much unspent UE?

There's only a few times in history that I didn't spend it as soon as I had enough for what I wanted. Usually because I was still making the decision to continue with one thing or switch to another.

Why...who...hundreds?...what?

I'm on board. I mean, I'm on board if you capped it, like, much lower. I'm not sure I buy that anyone who even goes to work at the most menial job of all time doesn't learn a -tiny- bit every day about -something-.

I understand a very low cap isn't right because I'm sure older characters have some high curves they have to legit save for, but saving for any other reason IMO is just blatantly gaming the system.

The staff have taken a vote and we will be implementing a cap of 250.00 unspent UE. If you reach 250.00 unspent UE, you will not receive additional UE, the same way someone at the UE cap would not. You will resume getting UE when you spend belong 250.00. You will NOT be entitled to missed UE.

This code change has not been added yet, but it will be soon.

This is now in effect. You will not be granted UE if you are over 250.00 unspent ue.
