[ok] Plane Historians Not Respecting Space-Time Continuum
« on: September 24, 2014, 02:58:53 AM »
So, I was perusing the used market o' junk in GW2 and saw a broker selling a DC8 for a rather fair price. I figured I'd take a look to see which bankrupted airline made the contribution to the broker and checked out its history. I saw that it was returned from lease a week before it was ever delivered to the player. It is quite the Fresh perspective to have reality work in such a manner, however, i suspect the Air will get let out of that theory rather quickly.

Planes used to be able to timetravel via the magic of the dateline, maybe a few retain their power?

My guess is they BKed a week before the plane was due to arrive, so the returned from lease message is automatically generated for that day. And the plane delivered message is generated when the plane goes in the post 3 weeks before the delivery date. So that anyone who BKs with a plane in the mail will generate that same weirdness in the timeline.

I see dead planes : looking at one aircraft (it was a Heron or Dove, as I recall) in the market, according to its history, it had been returned from lease and scrapped then magically reborn to be leased out again...

That's my guess too. It still bugs me though ;-)

That was due to some tow-truck work performed when the market ran out of planes....
