Let us end the anguish...of the paltry token followers that fly the banner of Angelique and Barnabas...their leaders have toppled...their guilds have failed...their followers have run away...their is no hope of victory...Kaz..I implore you to end the suffering of these...peasants...

Yes--please claim your victory. You had it weeks ago when you killed off everyone except the sole champions of Barnabas and Angelique, themselves.

Nice job with the final faith sweep. No, please dont' post any numbers...I'd hate to question how the war code works again.

*tips hat* That was probably the worst game I've ever witnessed.

That's right. Standard practice is to reset at the end of a two month period if no victory thread has been posted (and generally agreed to). It's not my place to decide whether or not the players are going to fight or quit, so I'd have kept the age going until the end of the month unless someone asked for an early reset. Nobody asked for a reset until now.

One question.

If I reset this weekend, then you'll end up war ready around about the time the game goes offline for Christmas, come back for a few days, and then goes offline again for New Year. Will this timing be an issue?

Honestly, Kaz--I'm afraid player base may be the bigger issue at this point.

Perhaps a good facebook/ad push a day or so before the reset would be a good idea.

I think we were hitting NPCs. I know I was.
Saved turns to hit some blue stuff so maybe we could have some fun amongst our heathen selves while ya Letos were already fatassfarmers anyway.
But that's ok.
You got scared.
I get it.
Even by ourselves and with 80k less acres, the Red God strikes fear in yer hearts.
Good.
Bring on reset then, it is what it is.

Kaz, maybe give Christmas gifts of NPCs to play with during break? Then we come back and fight it out again! =)

Joe, You're right, player-base is an issue, but it's not going to be fixed by throwing money I don't have at an advertising campaign that will cost money but wont actually 'convert' into players. We don't have a problem in generating new accounts who go on to create kingdoms (which is all an ad campaign will do), the problem is that they don't 'play' those kingdoms. The inability to convert a new account to a player is not something that advertising can help with.

From the feedback I've been able to get from new players it's because there is no integrated help and tutorial system at all. A new player has to manage to find the NPA forum to get any kind of idea how to play, and even the NPA threads are more aimed towards returning vets than actual new players. They might be lucky enough to find an old build strat, but lets face it, telling you step by step how to spend your first turns, without explaining why, isn't the sort of thing that'll get them to return.

The player-base is what it is until I can find enough time to code tutorial systems and more importantly write new-player targeted help files that are easy to find. I don't have any help doing this, so unfortunately it'll take as long as it takes :(

Tara, I don't have a code switch to allow the NPC's to be attacked during the automated holiday. I could write it, but it wouldn't be tested. What I could do, is NOT reset and add a whole host of 20 or 30 NPC's for you to play with right now? I'm not limited to 5 NPC's per faith, there's enough NPC names in the system to have a lot more. Actually, I'll birth a few now.

I actually also have an untested mode that ought to stop players from attacking players, but allow them to attack NPC's. I could turn off the automated holiday, and turn that mode on for a short period of time. We could even have an age of guilds vs NPC's instead of guilds vs guilds.

e.g.

1. Reset tomorrow some time.
2. Create 20 NPC's per faith
3. Turn off the automated Holiday Mode
4. Test out a mode that only allows NPC's to be attacked (hopefully it works).
5. Turn off this mode some time after new year.

or

1. Don't reset
2. Already have a new mass of NPC's
3. Turn off the automated Holiday Mode
4. Test out a mode that only allows NPC's to be attacked (hopefully it works).
5. Turn off this mode some time after new year for one last guild v guild war before resetting.

Kaz:

Agreed on not spending money for little or no results. However, I would encourage everyone to post in facebook and cheer/taunt or whatever it might take to get your old frenemies back in the game.

Option 1, btw--this age is OVER ! :) Tara and I are beat down and I suspect Fireslash and Nymph are "bored".

As for YOU, Tara---I would have been glad if it was you who attacked me--I of course, would never have downhit you--but it would have been an enjoyable war to spar with you...a little 1on1on rum... :D

Well, that doesn't seem to have worked out all that well. We're now in a situation that's even more lopsided.

Do you guys want another reset? Or do you want me to turn normal war on, but leave the age going? Or do you want me to leave the age with these settings enabled?

2 letos--1 active
2 angies, 2 active
3 barnies..none overly active.


I don't know--I'll support your decision whichever way you go.

Whatever...I'm just practicing killing kingdoms.
On a side note...is there a way to build a "lite" option, so when playing on my cell phone, I don't have to download all the images? Call it the "classic" view?
