I would consider myself a quick learner and will get around working with only with 28-35 slots at the time when re-organizing my schedules.
but wasn't the idea of this 'error' to prevent people grabbing to many (new) slots to quickly, without being able to assign them to AC? if i already own all my slots, i don't see this 'error' being of any value to anyone???
it would also seem that sami already acknowledge this early threat with an "OK" in the future request before it ended up in the archives??
Without a link to that request, it's really hard to assume what was in it....
When the constraints were put in, they were poorly planned, poorly executed and not tested. I remember filling a number of bug reports about the implementation and it took a while before the game play implementation meet its intentions.
The intention is not to block the initial scooping up of slots, but to try to put a guideline around slot hogging in general. One premise is that if you do not have an adequate number of planes to fly the slots you have acquired, it is a potential sign of hogging/abuse.
When playing in lhr, there is a significant incentive to grab as many slots as possible and do everything you can to hold on to them. If the restriction is nuanced not to consider slots you already own, that will allow you to drop routes and rotate them across a pool of aircraft that is not big enough to actually fly the entire schedule, thus, allowing you to control more slots than you can actually use for your given flight, which is a violation of game rules....
