The following is an account of what happened just half an hour or so before posting this.. ----------- At approx' 4:50pm Entropia time on 21/09/08, I was half-way between Camp Caravan and North Space Base, directly East of the revive-point there. I was, 'hunting' Cornundacaudas, and was doing fairly well; and in the course of doing this, I met someone that I know. Then, the next thing I know, is that I cannot move at all! Also, the creatures (as described above), were not reacting in any way upon being fired at. I tried reloging at least three times, as did this friend of mine... Finally, after rebooting my system, I was able to log back in, only to be presented with the message 'server is unavailable', or words to this effect - 'would you like to be relocated?'. I 'accepted' and in the end, was relocated to 'Billy's Spaceship Afterworld.' All well and good, you might think? Not really! 1). I had been 'looting' quite successfully, which was completely negated for obvious reasons 2). My acquaintance was not showing on my 'Friends list', because she had obviously not been able to log back into Entropia. Anyway, this is what happened - I don't know why. Obviously there was a server problem for that area, but why at this precise time when a) I was doing quite well in terms of loot, and b) when I was in conversation ( via the open-chat ) with a friend of mine?? --------- This 'friend of mine' is well known and liked on EU-Chronicle, although I won't mention the AV name out of courtassy, etc, but I'm also wondering if other colonists have experienced the same type of thing? With me, this is not the first time that I have experienced some thing like this, and nearly always involves someone that I know in-world that I am having a conversation with at the time. So, I smell 'a rat here'. It's as though MA does not like it when ppl who know each other in-world (not neccesarilly in RL), come accros one another, which eventually, is going to happen??
