Thread: unfair play in regatta (impossible points level?)👎

    Thumbs up unfair play in regatta (impossible points level?)👎

    I am in a regatta with 2 team members we are racing against likewise co ops, however how can a co op who us racing have 6,480 points in a regatta that has teams of 3 and only 16 tasks to complete?
    My calculations make it they have done 48 tasks all at 135 points how is this possible please.
    If it is going to be this unfair I am closing my co op and that is a shame as we love racing but fairly. Thanks in advance.

    I'm sorry to say that yes it is possible. There are some teams that only do 135 point tasks. They use TCash to speed up the dumped tasks.

    Its not as difficult as you think to race and get a perfect score. Many teams do it.

    My team has scored a perfect score 14 of the last 15 regattas. We vary between 4 and 6 active racers. We dump anything that *isn't* a 135 point task plus any airplane task. And no, we don't spend any T-cash other than to buy the 16 task for 10T. We're often done after 4 days and have plenty of time to recover. As Melissa says, it's not all that hard to do.

    Can you tell me about how many dumps you have by doing this ?

    Kelly when I raced with a group of 7 doing 16x135 tasks, not dumping any 135 tasks, we had around 1,000 dumps.

    Right now, with 4 of us (vacations) we're almost done and at 596 dumps. Shouldn't take too many more as the board has 6 good 135 tasks sitting there.

    I am in a 2 person coop. We won the golden sail on our first week in the gold league. Here is how we did it:
    - Any task under 135 points was deleted.
    - Boats were sent out ahead of the regatta but not unloaded, so when the right task came up it was completed in under a minute
    - Only unload the item the task called for, so when a 2nd item, from the same island, came up - we got 2 tasks from one boat run
    - Send boats with platinum bars so you get most product back, minimizing the need for a 2nd boat trip.
    - All factories had items on shelves ready to be collected - again the task was completed in a short period of time.
    - Any task that looked too long was deleted.

    I hope this helps you and your coop members.

    If you r in a coop with less then 10 ppl you can do all 135s if you want. It will not bring you on the Global Leaderboard because your dumping rate is way to high but in a coop with more then 15 members its impossible doing only 135s not using Tcash.
