    Ruby Ships, Again

    First, let me say that the new Ruby ship, Morning Tea Cruise, is a great design. Congratulations to the designer.

    It has a bit of an Alice in Wonderland look.

    But..............................



    We need MORE Ruby ships.

    I know, they are exclusive items. And we have been through this discussion more than once.

    I just keep thinking about all the players who miss them due to RL. Things like needing sleep, working nights, etc. keep players from being able to buy them.

    If you, PG employees, could find a way to split the release of the ships, or do a second release of the same ship later in the day, it would be awesome. Keeping the first set at 1,600 and releasing more later would be the best solution. And we would really appreciate it.

    Think how happy everyone would be if they could finally purchase the Ruby ship without having to set an alarm and get up in the middle of the night. It would go a long way to fostering some good will.

    Seriously, someone must be at the office during the day. Someone who could trigger a second release. I am not a computer programmer, and I have no idea how hard it would be. It seems as if someone ought to be able to do it. If you can do it at midnight Pacific time, why couldn't someone do it at noon Pacific time? Someone has to know the code to make it happen.

    I am sure there are more than enough players who want the ship for you to sell 2 offers. You could make a second release and see if it sells out. If it does, keep doing it. There have to be more than 3,200 people playing this game. And if a second set does not sell out, cut back on the number.

    I have bought rubies countless times to buy a Ruby ship. I can't be the only one crazy enough to do that.

    Give it some serious thought. Please? Pretty please?

    PG please consider this, I am sure that through the different posts here , and there that you can see that the demand is real. Every week we save up our rubies to purchase the Ruby Ship. Every week we turn on our devices, and we are prepared to purchase the ship only to see the sold out , expired sign again, and again. Once in awhile a few of us are able to purchase one. It does not seem fair that the same players get to purchase the ship over, and over again. Please find a way to send out a second release, or perhaps do a surprise release once a month. Just something to give all the rest of us a chance to purchase a ship once in awhile. A 12:00 noontime release would really help, players could buy it on their lunch break. Anything towards a second release would truly be appreciated. Thank You

    From my point of view, the fair option is to limit only the time not the number of ships....after all PG should be interested in selling as many as possible ships and consequently rubies!!!

    I think 24 hours time limit will be more than enough for everyone.

    Another great idea! And probably the easiest solution. Thank you.

    PG - please consider this suggestion.

    Here is a bit of music trivia for you:

    In 1976, Andrea True released a record. Sadly, she is no longer with us. She passed away in 2011 at the age of 68. The studio ensemble backing her up on the record was 'The Andrea True Connection'. The name of the song?

    'More, More, More'.

    The song was written by Gregg Diamond and has been recorded by other artists over the years. I think her version is the best. It has been used most recently in advertisements. Disco is dead, but the song lives on!


    In 1990, the band Extreme released the album Pornograffitti. One of the songs on the album was titled 'More than Words". The band did not like being known as the 'More than Words' boys. They refused to play the song on tour in Poland. Until one night when Stephen Tyler wrote on the dressing room door, "play the f***ing song!" They played the song. They continued to play the song.

    And now you are all shaking your heads and wondering why I posted this. No, I have not gone around the bend. I know exactly what I am doing.

    Both songs have one very important word in them.

    That word is 'MORE'.

    As in MORE ruby ships, please.
    MORE time for people to purchase ruby ships.

    Oh, yeah, and MORE money for PG if people don't have enough rubies to purchase the ship, but they want it, and they buy rubies to get the ship.
