I know this has been discussed on some other thread but I can't find it so I'm posting here. I love playing Sleuth Noir but I find there are not enough cases per day. I don't know if the majority of you out there in Sleuthville think the same but 12 cases is not enough, especially when you lose some to travelling and of course those darn pirates. SOM has 30 cases per day. Is there a reason that players are allowed more cases there than in Noir?

Please Ben, make our day and give us more cases.

Mystie, Sophie has suggested a way to get more cases...sidekicks! And no offense to you either, but more cases IS the issue, as thats what the post is about...so roll top desks DO give you more cases because you can store any free cases you might get from other agency members, thus increasing your daily case number. And being bored DOES have to do with more cases in a way because most of the people that have left from either boredom or gone to shades, never played all 12 of their daily cases. So in a way it does connect together. Jesses was right when he said that people have found other things to occupy their time. And because of that, the sleuth number has dropped increasingly. For the the people that are still around, a lot of us do struggle to find time do do all 12 cases as well as balance a family, and career, and even education.

Now if your a stay at home mom or wife or even husband/dad, then you'd have a lot of time on your hands and would want more cases definately!!

The fact of the matter is some people would prefer to have more cases, and some wouldn't prefer to have more cases. I doubt anything more will be done on upping the cases unless Admin decides to, but in the meantime, try getting people to subscribe and send them a sidekick coupon.

Wow I didn't think this thread would attract such attention..lol

I must be dense because I don't understand why having more cases would be a problem for those who can do only 12 cases or less per day. All they would have to do is not do them. The extra cases would not be an obligation, they would be there for those who want to do them.

Again no offense but just because someone doesn't have the time nor the interest in doing more cases the fact remains that some people would love to have this choice.

I agree with you Mystie, at least those who want more cases have them. If you don't want more cases, don't do them. geesh.

Jas has some good points... as confusing as it all is in all that...

The fact remains... THs and VH Tourneys would be out of balance... and some of us don't do cases and put them in files for others... However... The problem would be, more cases per day for a person who doesn't do all 12 of theirs in the first place is more to store, and with a limited number for case files, means having to check back more often.

I disagree with Jas on one point... a housewife (using myself as an example) doesn't always have the time to do 12 cases everyday, let alone more... I have other things to do besides sit at my computer and do cases all day. If you need more cases... subscribe more detectives. that simple. Sidekick cases actually throws some things off as well. However... Sophie also has a point on currency exchange rates.

One other point I'd like to bring out... If you really are that bored after doing your cases... FIND something else to do. I'm sure there are other hobbies out there besides looking at a monitor all day. I am actually very sure on that since I have many other hobbies.

I still don't get the problem of havng more cases . . . .

Is it soooooo bad that there are some people that want to play MORE AND MORE Sleuth?I think you should be happy to have people like those in Noir as , like previous people said , many people have left the Noir either for SoM or for other things.

Don't forget that those people are the best advertisment for any game and the fact that they support the game with 1 or more subscribed characters is more than enough proof.If they just want to play Sleuth , WHY do they have to find another hobby ? Or even worsse, WHY do you assume that they have plenty of money and so they have to create even more characters and then subscribe them???

Last, when it comes to THs and AVHs , THs won't be out of balance since all subscribed players will have the same amount of cases and AVHs could simply be quicker ; and if you don't like that idea , just put Cairo into play too.

When all is said and done, whether or not people will get more cases is not up to any of us; it is up to Ben alone. Fighting about it is really not going to solve anything.

A good while back, our number of daily cases was raised from ten to twelve. Perhaps Ben will raise it again, perhaps he won't.

MystieBlue said: "I must be dense because I don't understand why having more cases would be a problem for those who can do only 12 cases or less per day. All they would have to do is not do them. The extra cases would not be an obligation, they would be there for those who want to do them."

To answer that: crossed wires in communication. A while ago, an idea was put out to let people pay for a sort of "supersubscription" where they would pay extra and receive extra cases for that detective. That would upset the balance as far as treasure hunts and AVH league races, and even the high scores. And the people who are talking about the imbalances are referring to the "supersubscription" scenario, not to everyone's case load being raised, which is what you were referring to (I believe).

I have to say, I agree with something that you said, Mitstux. Put Cairo into play!! Chasing Villains through Cairo would be cool, and why not have treasure hunts there? Wow, would add a lot of variety to the types of treasures we could look for! Add some egyptian-themed stuff. :)

It's really nothing to mess about. There are some of us who wants more daily cases, and some who don't. But, as Anikka says, the final conclusion are solely in the hands of Sleuth Admin, or Ben as we use to call him.

I have no trouble with arranging myself so that I get the cases I want to play, but I can't deny that I would prefer to have more cases for each sleuth, even though other solutions has it's advantages as well.

If it's fair or unfair that some have more daily cases and others don't depend on what kind of common community we want to have. In real life I experience that some have the ability to drive a new car, while I don't.
(my car is a 84-model, about new from the factory...)
But, it have never occured to my mind that it's unfair that they have chosen to prioritize their money that way. I don't envy them having all this cool stuff, I won't get any better by doing so. I am happy that they have the possibility to rejoice in the results of their hard work.

I think that more than the number of daily cases, the amount of effort someone is willing to put into something makes a difference. If someone is willing to (able to are just a flavor of willing to) use much energy on Sleuth, it's just reasonable that it will pay off. If someone is not willing to put in that much energy, there is a big chance that they will not be so successful. This is the way it's on all other areas in life too. Why should it be any worse if it's like this here too?

I also notice that someone is complaining that to get the ability to solve more daily cases (if it's combined with some kind of price-raise) would make Sleuth soooo expensive. Excuse me, but are there really anyone, ANYONE? who think that a subscription to Sleuth are expensive?

I think the fact that people wanting more is a good thing; however I don't think it should necessarily be given to them.

Like Ani stated, it was raised from 10 to 12, before that it was raised from 8 to 10 so the game continues to evolve. At what point will it be too many cases to where the people who have the time to play a ton will get bored and move on. I don't think those people are bored at all. What the case limit does is leaves them wanting more. I think thats a good thing, keeps them coming back! ;-)

Personally I have 3 detectives and sometimes its a struggle to get through just one of their cases let alone all 3 of them, thats where my agency memebers that want more cases benefit, I put them in the file and mark them as free.

Ya know I keep thinking about this thread, some good discussion but there is one thing that I keep coming back to:

Now if your a stay at home mom or wife or even husband/dad, then you'd have a lot of time on your hands and would want more cases definately!!

I'm sorry Jas, but why does a stay at home Mom or Dad have all this time that they definatly want more cases? Or have a lot of time on their hand for that matter?

Ctown, you did it too
"Now if your a stay at home mom or wife or even husband/dad, then you'd have a lot of time on your hands and would want more cases definately!!
"

I stay at home but I don't have much extra time. Sleuth is entertainment and gets my mind off the important stuff for a while but I only play when its convenient for me.

-Now, back to the issue. If you play all 12 cases plus the favors then you are playing 16 cases per day. Looking at Misties XP ; over the last several days I can determine she doesn't play AI. Also, she has no Cairo contacts. Perhaps Mistie is not as serious about this game as some of us are and that is why we are bickering back and forth. We can't compare apples to oranges.

No offense intended to any apples or oranges both are really good, I'm just stating my observation and opinion.

*We all began as apples ;)
