Cpt_Koen influences the Courthouse with 2 Credits, the Reactor with 6 Credits (Disconnecting the Mob), and the Rebels with 1 Marine and 1 Credit, and now has 13 Credits, 4 Power, and 2 Marines, 3 Councilmen, and may send the Net a message containing a list of institutions, each with a Player whose Direction will be ignored for that institution this Cycle
Kevan now has 36 Credits
Murphy influences the Mine with 1 Marine and now has 16 Credits, 0 Marines, and 5 Power
Patrick influences the Council with 10 Credits and the Legion with 9 Credits, and now has 28 Credits, 1 Marine, 7 Power and 1 Councilmen
Yonah influences the Bank with 6 Credits and now has 29 Credits

The Slave Pits, Public, Rebels, 9689 Pymalion, and Mob were Powered but not influenced. The Slave Pits was also Powered but not directed at.

How did Kevan lose 9 Credits without Influencing any Institution?

Haha whoops wrong way fixed.

Yonah:

Also, evidently nobody directed credits at the bank besides me? Huh.

@Yonah, fixed

I had 14 Credits, I Influenced three Institutions for 2+6+1=9 credits, that’s 5 Credits left, plus 1 for the Rebels and 5 for the Reactor, so I should have 11 Credits and not 7?

In other news I can’t add <_<

@Koen, I have recalculated your Credits, you should have 13

Did I not send in any orders? I could have sworn I did.

I’m sorry Josh, I have double check through, and I received no directions for you this cycle.

Cpt_Koen:

@southpointingchariot I have no idea how you get to 13 but I won’t argue against ;)

Just to be sure, the Mob will stay disconnected/powered until the 18th, then connected/unpowered until the 21st?

southpointingchariot:

The mob will be disconnected during through the end of this cycle, but will be connected and powered on 0001 UTC on the 18th.

“When a Player influences the Reactor, the Institution they nominated is Disconnected during the next Cycle.”
“When a new Cycle begins, any Institution which is not Disconnected become Powered, and all other Institutions become Unpowered.”

Since the resolution occurs before the next cycle begins, I Influenced the Reactor during Cycle 8, so the Mob should be Disconnected during cycle 9.
Then when cycle 10 begins, every Institution which is not Disconnected will become Powered, and the Mob will become Unpowered.

Cpt_Koen:

Additionally I think the Bonus for the Rebels should be 0.

Yonah:

[Koen] Due to your influence, the Reactor is Disconnected during cycle 9. Thus, when cycle 9’s initialization is carried out, every institution except the Mob becomes Powered, and the Mob, which is disconnected, becomes Unpowered.

Cpt_Koen:

04-15-2012 18:28:22 UTC

Oh, right. I didn’t realize the disconnection and the unpowering were simultaneous.

If nobody influenced the Watchtower, you need to tell us “the Resources that each Player directed to any Institutions that they failed to Influence”.

Yonah:

04-15-2012 23:17:07 UTC

Ooh, good catch. Although the Watchtower was unpowered, that does not affect the wording of the relevant rules.

Yonah:

04-16-2012 16:10:56 UTC

Wait a minute, why did nobody influence the Black Market. The watchtower report shows as if no one directed at it, when I’m almost certain that I did.

Kevan: HE/HIM

04-16-2012 16:16:08 UTC

[Yonah] Nobody influenced the Black Market because it was Unpowered last Cycle, but you’re right, I think the directions should still have been made and recorded.

southpointingchariot:

04-16-2012 19:47:04 UTC

Kevan, good point. Though I believe Yonah was the only person to still direct at it - my mistake.

Yonah:

04-17-2012 02:25:12 UTC

Actually, looking back, I think I noticed that it was unpowered and changed my direction right before I sent it to you.
