You could quit. Seriously though, the games take a bit to end, so you could start late and have a chance.

I don't get what kdesai is trying in "Game 'Lion 4'" as he was in my group, i won and now he's trying to secure himself a place? That seems rather unfair to anyone else in the same group. (or rather anyone who slept through the start and lost due to inactivity)

It "should" be finished as we've had 3 from 4 games end already and in game 4 is the only legit player DLEE3.

Implement a game timer for every one in the game. Allowing only x steps or minutes or whatever per cycle (maybe per day).

Would mean noone can rush a game and take it over night.

What? If no one else is playing then of course you're allowed to take over the world overnight. I don't see your point.

@admin: expansion juice doesn't work very well because the "cycle" is too short. Instead of 30min, make it 8 hours or so, that would give people a chance to respond.

@RTL: Sure you're allowed but with an increase of time in which your actions have to recharge, it means people get a chance to respond. Maybe, there should also be a activity-check so when someone doesn't play an action every 4 hours 3x in row, the other players timer charge could go up and the time for their actions to recharge decreases. (means if in a regular game only 1 is playing, 30min expansion juice recharge is ok)

Exactly and thats only for Tournies and Lightning when u fall asleep, you could loose everything even if u take the whole world and your missing maybe 3 countries, someone spawns in you sleep for lets say 8 hours, they take everything you have and win the game, done! You just lost when you had 3 countries to go

Unless you play for 8 hours straight, it's not possible to take all of them in that timespan.

It's very easy to play 8 hours straight if you only have to look after it every 30min or so. Even at work. :3

Championship over, some rebalancing may be in order. If we had less juice or the juice came in longer cycles I wouldn't have been able to curbstomp this round before another player even logged in.

Giving us the option for increased cycle-times would allow for a lot more strategic matches because it'd be incredibly dangerous to try and steamroll the whole earth. Right now it is a very viable tactic to quickly rush and pray no-one logs on in time.

Congratulations!

I've been looking at what needs to be tweaked. I've set expansion juice to 12k per half hour instead of 15k. Let me know what you think.

I'd go even further and set the expansion refill timer to once per hour or even once per two hours. That way the game becomes much less about how long you can be online. Right now I was able to rush the game in 12 hours or so. Quadrupling the cycle time would up that to 2 days, more than enough time for someone to get online and actually put up a fight.

The problem is, there has to be a balance. For your specific case, yes, your idea would work nicely. Although, there are many players who play differently. Needs to be a middle road.

v2 will have specific game options, so you can specify things like this when creating a game.
