Worst luck and/or misclicks you've had? Messages in this topic - RSS

I recently discovered that a forum existed for Fallen London. It's time for a discussion!

Every now and then you have runs of good and bad luck. Pretty normal stuff.

Good luck is simple enough. You pick up the occasional watch here and there. Perhaps an extremely profitable item conversion. Generally, you make more money and sometimes faster progress.

Bad luck, however, has a much wider array of results. It's quite complex.

Sometimes, you get the worst luck at the worst possible time and you want to throw your phone across the room because you failed that 99% challenge that results in an instant trip to New Newgate when you've already got a huge amount of Suspicion. You had the right amount of CtD too.

The unexpected run of bad luck in the Flit or the Unterzee can be the worst, setting you back several actions because of challenges your skill and money could not mitigate. And if you're like me, you despise action waste and the CP and Echo waste that comes with it.

I feel like London would not be that much different if there was some sort of high-stakes gambling system added. Like gambling Echoes or expensive items among other players. Basically like trying to get the yacht or the library but with the chance of real profit involved.

Anyway, here's the question.

Londoners, what's the absolute worst luck you've had while making important choices or going through long runs of storylines and other stuff?

If your luck is amazing and always works out where it matters, then there's always the possibility that you misclicked something you really didn't want to misclick, like accidental A Turncoat maxout while Echo grinding or perhaps something even worse. Tell us about it!

[spoiler]I've had some pretty epic misclicks in my day let me tell you. My first memorable misclick was during my early days when I was playing through the war for wolfstack docks storyline. So many claymen died that day, needlessly :'(

Then the second tournament of knife and candle started up. When it was new it was invite only, and if you retired or got knocked out of the leagues (by losing all your tokens) you lost ALL of your K&C items. Well, I was very enthusiastic at expanding the game to as many people as possible, and kept sending out every spare token I ever owned. The only problem was the invite new players button was located next to the retire from K&C and lose everything button. The first time I misclicked it, I lost all of my everything and since players and prize tokens were rarer back then, those losses were equal to about 1% of the total tokens in circulation at the time across all 500 players.

The second time I retired accidentally from K&C was also bad, but less so as there had been more prize token distributions by then- however, the second retirement was from the Bronze League, which was retired like within, like, an hour of my misclick. Everyone who was in the bronze league at the time it was retired got a bunch of free prize tokens :'(

I accidentally retired my max level K&C orders medals once too, and those weren't cheap in the 'manual prize token broadcast is the only source of them' days.

There was a time in the past when I was against associating with the revolutionaries at all. Five card lodgings were just released, and I went to great lengths, and I mean -great lengths- to grind out a master's blood in time to get the spire lodging without selling the nadir to the revs. I also tried to lower my connected the revolutionaries to 0 for this option but without advancing liberation of night. I found I could do this by raising my dangerous on the Connected revolutionaries card. Unfortunately, at low levels of connected revolutionaries, that option drops to the bottom of the list and the option to sell the nadir becomes the top option. And I misclicked. And it set my 'closest to' quality to The Revolutionaries. And it was during a period of time where it was impossible to change who you were closest to other than the one time nadir sale action. I sent Failbetter like five bug reports titled misclick that were just several pages of all caps letter A's (ex. AAAAAAAA) before I sent a follow up that said never mind I've calmed down haha. After that incident, I decided to just go with it, and have been a revs supporter ever since. Although I did change back to closest to the bohemians as soon as I could.

I've accidently sold a max level Singular plant. Those things take a literal forever to relevel auuuugh, and it was just after getting my 6th rosette. I never did get the 7th one I always wanted after that. :'(

The worst was probably the time I went to send a friend a gift of 100 fate from the house of chimes though. OMG. OMG!!!! IT WAS SO BAD!!!!!!!! So in that specific branch, all of the options are fate spend options. I went to click send 100 fate, but missed and clicked "Spend 30 fate to reset your house of chimes entry quality!" FFFFFFFFFF, I lost scarlet saint -and- 30 fate -and- it was after the quirks changes. Do you know how hard it is to get back the scarlet saint requirements as a max level player who has already locked out of all the early story lines????? GGGGG I die. It was the literal worst. No less than 600 actions and 300 fate were lost trying to recover scarlet saint from that incident. Never again will I use Mr Chimes like that, he is the most dangerous fate send. Literally a death trap of fate options that will really mess you up and take your real world money money on a misclick. Always use the lofty words for fate sends kids, OMG.[/spoiler]

I know I've done some more absurd misclicks, but those are the ones that really stick out in my mind.

Oh man, that was last hallowmas. How could I forget. I was kissing counterfeit heads for quick scandal for confessions of whimsey, and popping over to the message tab to accept a bunch of the menace reducing confessions without going to the story tab. But I got efficiency greedy and tried to do it with two windows open. One on my inventory, and the other on my messages tab. This caused a conflict though and instead of accepting a social action, it refreshed the page kicking me into the story tab and therefore into the tomb colonies, halving my hedonist. So not so much a misclick rather the folly of trying to play across two windows at the same time. But it was a similar effect. I got sent to the tomb colonies a second time for similar reasons (with normal menace gains, I forgot I was wearing scarlet stockings for +1), and then my hedonist was 4. Quirks are supposed to reflect the BIG decisions and who your character is as a person, but I went from higher than 15 to 4 in like 2 clicks. I can never take quirks seriously again after that :v

EDIT: The worst part is I purposefully stocked up over 200+ counterfeit heads for this sole puropse of hallowmas usage. And I lost all of my hedonist before I was even a dozen in. You need hedonist -12- to kiss them. I have 200+ heads for kissing, and my hedonist is -4-. RIP D:

Does Sunless Sea count?

Very soon after starting the game, I accidentally sold my Handsome Townhouse due to the GUI tabs overlapping with the button.

I was so upset that I dug into the hex values for the game, found the one storing Echoes, added 500 to the value, and bought the Townhouse again. I don’t consider this cheating, since there was no net change.

    Have to agree with this one, I've spent more than 70 tales of terror and over 100 actions and I have never actually gotten anywhere near the end.
    And I just saw some one get a coruscating soul with a single tale and I'm just here seething.
    Not to mention I once failed 6 times in a role for a Luck challenge with pretty good odds, it's like the chance system is plotting against me.
    I've had a 100 tales turn into nothing once. The wiki recommends batches of 1000 tales, but batches of 100 are alright if you can accept being slightly outside the margin of safety.

    Probably my worst misclick so far... would be getting rid of a clipping of St. John's lily. Which reminds me!
    These are a great way to prevent misclicks:

    Was very proud of managing to get my Hedonism and Austere each above 12 in pursuit of becoming a Scarlet Saint (the dead zone between Hedonism 10 and 12 was only bridgeable through a fate option at the Feast of the Exceptional Rose). Not wanting to let Hedonism fall back below 12 again, I decided to give myself a bit of buffer by kissing a counterfeit head of John the Baptist. I knew doing so would skyrocket my scandal and send me to the tomb colonies to have my hedonism cut in half, but I had Ablution Solutions stocked to bring it back down before hitting the story tab and triggering exile.

    First drink didn't quite do the trick so I clicked "try again" for another. Little did I know that I should have clicked the "myself" tab instead, as "try again" apparently does send you off to exile. Now my Hedonism is plummeting straight down to 6, and I won't be able to crack the 10 barrier until next February. At least I don't lose Scarlet Saint status with the loss of Hedonism.

    So, having slaved to acquire London's Marrow, I returned from a party one evening to find a card from the Devils (I don't know why they persist -- I want nothing to do with them!)
    I hadn't realised that I'd accumulated 7 favours at the party over time and not exchanged them in The Forgotten Quarter.
    The only open slot on the card was -- sell them access to the Nadir.
    Gah. Those cheapskates were the very last lot I wanted to sell to. Not to mention finding myself "closest to" them as well.

    Isn't it interesting that the City Vices card where you can lose Watchful has the same art as one of the Housing cards?

    Shame I wasn't paying attention.

    It's less impactful now that I'm Paramount and can fix it all relatively easily but it's still galling.

    Yeah, not sure why high Austere halving your Hedonism has to automatically take precedence over the opposite. Or why we can't have, say, a second return unchanged option unlocked at really high Hedonism because you are just so incorrigible.

    Worst luck: In the last 2 weeks, I have gotten over a dozen Unsigned Messages. Awesome, right? There are only 4 things that have exactly 1 number in the Bundle list- a starveling cat, your soul, the previous soul location, and the Blemmington Secretary. I'm currently farming packages/doing gift exchanges to try to get the secretary and my soul back.
    In the last 2 weeks I have received _3 Starveling Cats_ from Mr Pages.

    Same as the last post above you, you did misclicked and lost your Hedonism by being sent to the tomb-colonies too, if I remember correctly, right?
    If I am not mistaken it was higher than 15 and after the 15 cap was implemented.

    I never thought about doing the Fidgeting Writer story until I came across the forums. Actually, I still don't. Some have profited, but most probably drowned in their own misery after ten or so failed grinds.

    Ever since Polythreme I've never viewed "pretty good odds" as good. Gambling sounds fun and all but I doubt success will grant the ecstacy that, say, a Ratwork Watch would. Even if I don't get it, I am well compensated anyway.

    Most discover that the epa is probably in the 1.6 range, despite what the wiki has to say, unless you already own all the prerequisites. That said, it's definitely not a terrible way to grind, even if you aren't blessed with the "lucky" template [not an actual thing that exists in the game].Better is the lethal prominence and Affair of the box, for reliability and theoretically useful payouts, but if you, say, need 50 searing enigmas, your options are pretty much run 8 expeditions or get 8 lenses of black glass, and i know which one had better epa, before the favors swap, and which one can be done at any time now. I honestly don't get why they do the next stat, but fidgetting writer really is that good.

    (Also note most in-game gambling is rigged in your favor- you make more when you win than you lose when you lose. The house always wins in the long run- if it's worth the time invested.)

    Wow thanks I never knew there were extensions available! I feel like option protectors are a must-have for absent-minded people like the idiot I am. I'm fairly new to the game and have managed to sell my soul twice so far.
    I do have 1000 tales sitting around but the thought of using so many actions really dissuades me. I guess I'll save them until I finish progressing through mid-level.
    I actually never realized we had a very detailed wiki and a dedicated community until two days ago, so I'm still learning!

    I never thought about doing the Fidgeting Writer story until I came across the forums. Actually, I still don't. Some have profited, but most probably drowned in their own misery after ten or so failed grinds.

    Ever since Polythreme I've never viewed "pretty good odds" as good. Gambling sounds fun and all but I doubt success will grant the ecstacy that, say, a Ratwork Watch would. Even if I don't get it, I am well compensated anyway.

    Having worked really hard at a successful Governorship in Port Carnelian, I accidentally bolted back to London in my yacht...

    Once, while not entirely sober, I accidentally sold my submarine instead of setting sail.
    Thankfully, FB was kind enough to undo this for me, possibly because I had spent fate to skip over the whirling contraption grind.

    Distant seconds involved orthographic infections, an unusual wager, and two stats that were at 215. The first time was before PP was introduced, so I had to get my watchful back up to 215 again. Thankfully, I had already moved on to a third stat when I dropped a few persuasive CP. I do hate seeing those 214’s though.

    Or possibly best luck ...

    You know how you reliably fall flat on your face with the risky challenges? Yeah, well. I've now had three attempts at robbing the Brass Embassy for reasons, and come away with buckets of loot while being denied access to New Newgate.
    Boo, hiss!

    Now completed robbery no. 6. The Brass Embassy lies empty, its treasures depleted. I am contemplating taking on a criminal record. Seriously.

    I think the record I've heard was nine break-ins before managing to get caught. I'm not sure if that should be reassuring or concerning.
