You are all aware that points have 'stopped'. But I do not believe they have in reality. The Welcome page (Dashboard) has been frozen for 5 days with only a sm,attering of points before that since the bundle reveal - like we were getting a few points but the noobs points weren't necessarily showing up.

This became obvious when Orange started PMing in earnest again, for referrals and for team points.
We started a blitz and for the first time ever - we didn't gain on the leader - at all.
The Welcome page has been frozen in time - It also lists my last PM as March 31 - and I have PM'd with a few people including getting my bundle charges fixed over the last week.
The D has said to be patient and there will be answers. They have also warned of site 'disruptions' as the bundle buying frenzy comes during the last day.

Check it out. And keep helping new Oranges get their points up.

Any guesses what the D has in store for us at the end when the points count for something????

I really hope that we can trade in our points to get free apps, that would be great! big_smile

After buying the bundle I'm in App overload.. I can't really think of any new ones I'd want and/or need.

Orange you glad I didn't say banana?

Does anyone really know what the points will do. Will only the top point team win something or will it move down?

@GFB3 -
We know nothing. The Masters of MH have been very secretive. We don't even know whoi is ahead since points are blocked or frozen in time.

So we are all waiting to find out.

Nobody knows what the points are for. But at least from what Phill said in another post, they definitely mean something. I guess we'll get an answer no later than this weekend...

How do you say goodbye?

I hope if the points count for something it is on an individual basis and not as a team. It's seems unfair to me if a green member with 1 point gets something that a purple player with 2500 does not.

We shall see... the green member with 1 point did more for their team than those people who just buy the bundle and never login again.

In reply to a question about points, Phil said we should be patient and indicated something is gonna happen.


And in this post, John reconfirmed something is up tonight or tomorrow. big_smile

My guess is a free app or a mini bundle and the points arrange the prices of the mini bundle by the team places. Or what if it is discounts amounts towards Macheist 4?????

Thank you MacHeist!

if Johnred is right, expect the site to temporarily shut down soon (2210 EDT now), so get those last actions in.

I very curious if all this point gathering does give something to those who kept the faith. I'm with Spoon, I'm also in app overload, and I've barely played with anything yet. Mostly because I was waiting for my new 17" MBP. Well, it came in last week, and now that I've switched data to the new system and made the old PB17" "kid-safe", I'm ready to dig into my booty.

If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard! - Gen Buck Turgidson     GO ORANGE!

It does mention a small surprise. What counts as a small surprise around here? I'm thinking a screensaver, because if I set my sights any higher I might be disappointed.

Oh, so that's why my points haven't gone up.

I've been doing loads of the stuff listed in the 'official points guide' and i'm still stuck on 177.

Thanks for the info
