There is just so much I can talk about regarding this post.
NO, you are not the only one going through this. I and the faction I have led for roughly two years have had a meth scheme going on until now and the struggle to stay afloat has been just crazy.
You seem to be upset with your meth scheme that merely has few weeks or even months, oh well, we have a meth scheme going on for something very close to two years and we've been stomped on left and right. Our meth scheme has been upgraded and improved left and right to no avail. It's just a joke.
Suppliers are not required to roleplay anything whatsoever, besides typing over a chain-thread to request their goods to be spawned inside their property. For a role that is deemed to be "important" within the illegal community, they don't seem to be held to the same standard as regular players. It's sad to see that spawning items has been taken more into consideration than those who put the time and effort to actually roleplay these schemes throughout.
Every scheme holder is asked to be 1:1 regarding their scheme applications and their methods, but when pressed by questions, it is shifted to "we do not roleplay drugs 1:1". I am sorry, but if drugs aren't to be roleplayed at 1:1, then stop with the 1:1 applications, lol.
The quantity vs quality is just an excuse for some people to be rewarded with more quality than others, for unknown reasons it seems. I can tell you for instance that my meth scheme had a overseas operation with the end goal of shipping some needed supplies into the states, ultimately being cooked by long term cooks. The time and effort to build this was massive and in the end of all of it, it seems that it don't matter if you acquire your supplies at a pharmacy or if you ship them overseas from trustees. You will get the very same shit quality. It also doesn't matter if your initial application was for crystal meth or speed, your quality will be lowered to the much IFM wants without any research. I am yet to see crystal meth being 47% pure, lol.
It comes to my understanding that during one of my conversations with IFM, they stated that EVERYONE else was happy with their scheme, except us, but it seems that it is completely untrue and facts are just being hidden behind closed doors so that they are not addressed or seen by the community.
The fact that most official suppliers are reserved to admins / IFM makes it seem like any other regular player would never have a chance to become one. Seems like a trend that official suppliers always have some sort of connection to the above entities.
I can also advance the fact that discussing this matter with them doesn't seem to return any results as I've lately been said and pressed to close my scheme if I am unhappy with the way they unrealistically handle meth schemes.
Our supply was downgraded from 1,200 grams to 1,000, from 100% purity to 47% or below 😄
Our quality is downgraded a second time without any reach out from IFM and once we ask about it, oh well, dear friend, our OOC decision you will have to overcome IC.
Maybe after all, people isn't actually happy with these changes, are they?
I thought I'd share the SS's above so everyone can see I am not just talking my ass off here. 🙂
