Oof... $700 mill down the drain

Recommended Posts

Flying through Auction House wayyy too fast/tabbing between windows... and just made this 700 million inf booboo. Whoopsies.

 

Time to log off methinks. Ah, well, it's just inf, right?

 

Right?! 🙂

Ouch, that's about the worst i've seen. And most of that will probably literally be down the drain as the person on the other end isn't likely to be looking for that before hitting claim all inf.

Makes me feel SLIGHTLY better that someone else out there made a $70 mill booboo clown 🤡 

 

If someone can own up to a $7 bill screw up, I’ll sleep soundly tonight 😂

Ugh I feel for you. My biggest mistake was 100m. Put one to many zeros on a pvp IO. It’s never fun when that happens. At least it made someone else happy though right?

 

To make me feel better I told myself it was someone who is new to the game, just worked a 14 hour shift at work, got the baby down to bed, and just needed to take some time to decompress. Then logged in to see that a pvp IO that they got as a lucky drop the week before sold for 110m influence!

I love this perspective! You’re definitely right, someone (hopefully multiple people!) logged in to delightful surprises 😄

 

Honestly, I really have a good sense of humor about it—it really is just a game and I’m hoping others can laugh at my booboo. Unlike Tiger King, I WILL financially recover from this 😂

Ouch.

As a player with too many alts and not enough influence, i felt that hurt deep in my soul.

Did it on live once  Not QUITE 7B, but close.
ONCE.
Got greedy and wasn't paying attention to my zeroes.
So I raided my piggy bank.
Then logged off.
Logged back in on that character a couple days later.
Went to look in and cash out.
What?
WHAAAAT!?!?!?!?!?
No. Nonononononono...
AUUUUUUUUUGHHHHH!!!


If you want to be godlike, pick anything.

If you want to be GOD, pick a TANK!

Brutal.. I'm sure it felt even worse on live, given it was a bit harder to earn influence at this scale (and, depending on when you played, cost real $ for you to play in the first place!)

I just had my major oopsie.  Made a new villain as a tanker, took him through the tutorial, opened an email holding 999,999,999 in order to buy some things from the P2W.  Ran a few missions and decided I'd like him better as a brute, so deleted and remade him.  And finally, as I was wondering why my new brute had no inf, it struck me.

Ouch. That is quite a hit.
