Unattended Multiplayer hosting?

Postby jttoo » March 2nd, 2021, 12:39 am

Whats the general consensus on unattended multiplayer hosting, i.e. leaving a MP running while I sleep at night or work during the day?

Nice idea, or bad idea?

I have a full-up magpie decoy setup at HooCairs primo magpie spot, that I could leave running for people to grind geese at, but I don't know whether this unattended hosting is frowned upon.

It's fine....Used to be done quite often. You might want to put in the description that you won't be in the game so people are aware it's unattended.

So what if it's frowned upon? I don't think it is anyway.

However whenever I hold public pbay games, more often than not, unless I'm hunting magpies, the magpies don't seem to break...real shame. I made it public in the first place so newbies could get some magpies... And the chance of them not breaking seems to go up the longer the game goes on. If someone joins at the start they can get a few magpies, but then eventually they stop breaking.

I know that in MP, if you are not in the water flow blind with the other hunters, the water flow will very rarely fly over the non-host's hunters. Also, it does feels like they have a reduced chance to break, but so far I've only experienced the less likely water flow break chance with magpie geese.

It seems the same with snow geese too unfortunately. Haven't tried with other birds.

Actually, it has nothing to do with how long the game has been running, it can break like this as soon as someone not the host starts using calls/flags. Been a problem for years. I've reported it as have many others still yet to be fixed.
