100 Shades of Sentiment and Sorrow

February 1st, 2020

We’re proud to announce what we like to call the Sentiment System. We also did a complete overhaul to the forum. We also have some reports from the new Report Request section as well...


Sentiment


As you might of noticed, there is a new bar in your slaves window that shows the NPCs current disposition toward you. This system has been implemented in order to give high level and new players alike a reason to continue to do missions even long after they have hit a high enough prestige that they stop receiving benefits (as of the time of this writing that is prestige 31). This sentiment system is intended to reward long term play and is by no means intended to be completed within a short time period. As such you will receive substantial rewards for having achieved a high disposition with a particular NPC.


While this will give you great rewards by aligning yourself with particular NPCs there is also a downside. As you know with missions there is always a target. This target will not be pleased with you hacking them, stealing their files etc. This will cost you sentiment with them. So if your looking to max out your sentiment with a particular NPC it may be worth the Rep loss if the particular mission targets an NPC that you are looking to max out your sentiment with.


There are 50 Ranks of Negative Sentiment and 50 Ranks of Positive Sentiment Each with their own Adjectives.




A Funny Thing Happened On The Way to the Forum


The Forum has received a complete and total overhaul. This will host a FAQ section, as well as a focal point for the community to receive questions, bounce ideas off each other and develop better in game relationships. While this is a player vs player game we can honestly say that the community that surrounds this game is one of the brightest and most inventive group of people we’ve come across and we thank you all very much for your support.
