      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. Vestas seems to struggle since the start. Hope the boat (rudders) is alright otherwise it would be a punishing leg for them
  2. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    But especially Autosail is a dangerous tool since VR fixed/changed the penalty for sail change recently. Now every sail change with Autosail active results in a 50% speed penalty for 5 minutes and this makes the use of the card on tracks close to the cutover between sails dangerous since a constant flipping between two sails can result in dramatic lower speed. Regarding recent changes see last post here
  3. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    I have only bought C0 and foils
  4. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    My surrounding looks pretty interesting There are several more from my friend list in the area to my port side if i zoom farther in.
  5. Who, the invisible duo? Have they climbed out from under their rock or are they still budget calculating?
  6. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Yeah, noticed it already in the RORC race. At least it doesn't bring you to front of the pack but with VR you never know. The next step is probably premium frigate for real money to move you real close to the leader
  7. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    I guess they figured that cards farming give too much credit (I'm currently holding over 7.000 credit without having bought any with real money). I also read on zezo that there is supposed to be 500 credit buy back limit for leftover cards at the end of the race.
  8. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    AFAIK it shifts the time and therefore weather for the route calculations to the time of the race start instead of using the current time. Edit: The programmer zezo in this thread and also here
  9. VOR leg 3, crew changes

    Was he really so good in leg 1? Ok, the decision to follow Vestas panned out nicely but otherwise they constantly lost distance and places.
  10. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    No problem, i was just wondering what the yellow meant on my rank for my first leg. No worries.
  11. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    @Tunnel Rat: What does the yellow highlight in the overall standings indicate?
  12. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    I'm also out there only slightly North of all you guys Fun to watch the Rhumbline huggers
  13. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    The points received might be somehow proportional to the VSR level of the leg. Next leg is also VSR level 4.
  14. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Also finally in: Cambodumum, 2735th place, 20d 21h 28m 07s ( +2d 07h 26m 45s behind Stufishing_SA), 7692,8nm sailed
  15. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    I sure hope so. As far as i understood it the OBR was restricted of what to show (sail setup?) by the team to not give away their "secret". Since the showed the setups of the other boats in detail it could make a difference at least for the remaining legs.
