GAS, please seriously consider a throwback world

If we do this, let's spend a month or two discussing, voting, and otherwise TRULY getting the will of the people, instead of just firing when it seems like fun. I'm not saying that's been done, but this would have to be a very serious and very considered first attempt. We could probably get a lot of the old-time names to come give things a go again, but if they get a bad taste and leave again, it's unlikely there could be a second chance. So far this thread is full of ideas I like. Dump work hea...

Newsflash To All Hw Players

Quoted from "-Zed-" You didn`t understand the message. You are not allowed to hit campers to make them level up IF they are mods or friend of a mod *evil* See, I didn't know that. I'll have to get on it. It wasn't mentioned in my Mod Training Module.

My point remains. Instead of complaining about how something isn't playing the game the way you prefer, suggest a rule addition/change. As things stand, this is a thread full of complaints with zero calls to action.

I hear your complaints, but safing a big order's cities for compensation is not against the rules. You may feel it's not the way the game should be played, but the rules don't back you up on that.

Let up on SB bans in different languages

Seconded. I try not to ban folks if they are trying, particularly if they do not speak English. It's unfortunate that the other language mods are not as understanding. If you'd like us to be as draconian as they are, I can take that under advisement, and I will mention to GAS that they might want to have the other language mods be a little less aggressive, but we EN mods have no direct influence over the other language mods, and I don't want them to feel I'm telling them how to do their jobs.

LUCY...you got some 'splainen to do

Very simply, if you have been playing for multiple years, and you make a clear rule violation, we can bypass the formal warning step and go directly to a 24H ban. Aside from new worlds like INT4, it really never comes up, as the number of players that managed to get through multiple years without bans who are suddenly getting them now approaches zero.

The Update discussion thread

The real problem is that GAS did not foresee orders rapidly switching city perks. The limit of five was meant to keep you from benefitting from more than five cities. If you can switch to five gold cities just before reset, gather the gold, switch to five merc discount cities, hire your mercs, switch to five stat boosting cities, and go to battle, you have the benefits of fifteen cities at battle time. The 25 hour timeout is meant to prevent exactly that. Is it a good fix or the right fix? I don...

Minimum Price for Elixirs needs reducing

Quoted from "Croaker" GaS dumped that update on us and then went on holidays? To be fair, they were doing a lot of work on it right till they left, and I'm sure they'll be back on it as soon as they're back in, but I'll fully agree that the timing wasn't good, and maybe this patch should have happened now (January), when everyone is here, instead of straddling a major international work holiday.

Quoted from "Katsuro" Forge, I can think of at least one reason why the thread, and forum overall, has become in terms of the civility: Lack of administration in dealing with this issue. By that I mean support has disappeared totally, both here and in game. There is nothing being done to remedy this situation, its as if GAS tucked tail and split knowing they figged up big time.

What happens when Christians get kicked off the map?

I believe worst case, Christians can't lose Rome, it's a HB-only city. I don't think those can be lost. More realistically, I think the Christians will get pushed way back, then shuffle a while, then retake lost ground until we reach some equilibrium.

Persistent testing world with periodic player/order wipes

Quoted from "Penelope" Agree Forge! However, Instead of starting from scratch though with characters, they should just randomly assign the 100's of accounts that they have already established on the server. They need the huge range of levels and stats distribution to best simulate the game. Easily enough addressed. After wipe, each new account is assigned a semi-random amount of gold and xp. The mechanism is there, it just needs to be automated. I say semi-random, because you'd want to link the...

Persistent testing world with periodic player/order wipes

An idea, free for the taking. Take the current dev server, wipe all the accounts/orders/etc, and open registration. Point dev.holy-war.net there. Everyone has premium for free, and wipes happen every few weeks or months, as things get stale. Put little orange and black construction signs at the top, and a "Next wipe is in XXXX days, last wipe was YYY days ago" sign. Make it clearly known that you get free prem and possibly some other kinds of bonuses, but that nothing you achieve is permanent. W...

Remove update until fully tested!

There was plenty of testing, the multi-declare issue wasn't IDed as a bug. The test server had a shorter timer, so we could get more attacks made, and test things. With the very limited number of users on the testing server and the shorter timer, we never had enough declares running at once to see the issue. I don't need to tell you this, and I probably shouldn't have (though I'm not under NDA), so I hope you appreciate the information. The developers are rushing a few small fixes into place to ...

Quoted from "Kinji" I remember adding a simple math problem that changed from time to time and saw no more spambots on my site.

As administering public bulletin boards is part of my professional life, I feel I must impart some clue. While there are modifications and extensions that can make it more difficult to register for a BB, that's a two edged sword. Especially in the case of HW, where the 13-18 year demographic is heavily courted, you don't want to make registration too difficult, as it chases away customers.

On the off chance this happens, I'd like to further suggest that these lottery plunders add personal stats.

Everyone seems to be sad about the decreased work pay and increased plunder payouts in the recent patches. It's understandable.
