Lord Valvvyn Posted April 30, 2009 Report Share Posted April 30, 2009 I was just reading some postings where players were complaining that battles were not being properly triggered during convoy execution. Apparently this has been a bug in the game for years. There are other ancient problems with the game that there is no evidence any progress is being made towards fixing. And there are parts of the game that simply were never finished. I won't make a laundry list here as that has been done elsewhere and I think everyone here knows to what I am referring. So I am raising this topic for discussion here as to whether the game should be paused to give Pete time to work on it. He apparently does not have enough time to both process orders and fix the bugs. If we paused the game for a month or two, that would give him a chance to catch his breath and make some real fixes and improvements in the game plus have time to do some thorough testing. Those that wanted to could submit a turn for processing that he could use in his testing. Pete could back up the database, make his changes/fixes, then run the test turns. Once done he could restore the database from backup for another test run as needed, without risking problems with real turns. I'm sure those relatively new to the game or locked in an exciting war are not anxious to have everything put on hold for several weeks, but there may be others that have been playing nonstop for years that would benefit from a short break. However the main intention of this suggestion is to give Pete time to fix the game and make improvements that he is too busy to do while processing turns every 2 weeks. I for one would be happy to see the game frozen for a couple months if I knew when it restarted that the ancient bugs would be fixed and some improvements made. Given the scale of the game it would be a small price to pay. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
