Board Hoppers Amalgamated

Postby AJStoner » Fri Oct 06, 2017 9:26 am

Hey all! I guess this is the place to put this. I have been doing some Rhea grinding and one thing I've noticed is that I have a scarce number of boards to hop from, thus wasting a lot of time waiting for resets. I created a private group: A.J. Stoner that anyone who shares this problem can join if they like for an extra. Should be set to open so you can insta-join.

If anyone else wishes to do so list the name here so we have access to more boards. Mobius rules apply on all of course.
Aim to please; shoot to kill.

I dont think it mattered which private group you went into, it the same for all of them. Plus, I dont think board hopping is a thing for 2.4; they've pretty much killed it, thats why there, should be, more missions available

Board hopping still works in 2.4, but not to the extent it used to. On some occasions I'll find different missions in one PG as compared to another PG, so A.J. adding another PG for himself might not be a bad thing.

I usually flip like this:
open-small pg-solo-large pg-open-small pg-solo , etc, etc.

All missions where turned to shit.
Even if there are 3000 missions on the board means nothing when they don't even cover fuel and ship integrity costs.

Rule 1: Pillage. Then burn.
Rule 2: No such thing as overkill, as long as there are reloads.

I find the challenge of picking up high-paying missions by board hopping far more interesting than the actual game now. I made over 2 billion credits from taking the Rhea passenger missions before the nerf by Extreme Board Hopping (hey, it's a new sport!). And, no, I didn't need that extra 2 billion credits. It was just the most challenging thing I could find to do in the game. Now that it's nerfed I'll go back to watching Obsidian Ant videos...

The boards change when you go from PG to PG. Tested countless times, and extensively in Rhea ^^
Even now after the nerf it's not rare to make around 15 millions per run on a Conda. Still better than old time Quince IMO

Ah, I used to get the same missions no matter which PG I went into. Weird.

i have 3 PG, and on several occasions these were enough to fill up the conda's passenger cabins.
they have basically the same missions, but a few new ones pop in. Sometimes it's the motherload, sometimes they are all empty.. RNGeezus powa..

The challenge of finding decent paying Missions has in itself been nerfed (none to be had).
I know I'm shallow but I really do not get reward from the game post 2.4 (I'm doing the housework)

I'm not sure it makes a difference anymore. I think open and private share the same boards so you only get a 10 minute refresh. Is Rhea actually still profitable? I though it got hit with the nerf bat quite heavily last week and was no better then anywhere else now.
