Once I get a few more security bugs out (a few days? a few weeks?), I will be doing a complete reset of the game - all money, cities, everything. With some of the new balance changes we've implemented, along with all of the security holes (hopefully) being filled, it should make for a better game.

I may give some warning before I do the reset, but don't count on it... :)

Please note: This may be a few weeks away, although it'll likely happen within the next couple days, so don't get too excited yet...

Hey Mickey, I have about 90 nukes. Le'me use 'em before the apocalypse! Reduce their effect to 10% damage per, change the laws of physics so the shields are less effective, and let me at it! ;-)

Hey, how about my suggestion to let some silent, nondescript player have a billion geos to do as he wishes -- the only proviso being that he must take over the world in 48 hours? I mean, dude -- we can't just have a system reset. Mickey. Dude. That would be LAME.

Also, I hate to say it, but I'd want warning if only so I could be up and in GE when the time comes. I mean, some dude sending 700 armies of 100,000 troops each -- it'd be a sight to behold!

I for one am VERY unhappy. Just when I was making headway into the game and building my resources for over a month I now get told I wont have chance to use them and have to start all over again.

This sucks.

Mickey, I normally like your ideas but this one has really peed me off.

I think it'll be great... everyone will start on an equal footing ...
and only the new ones.. that join in later will be the ones who lose out...

it'll be great !!

Yeah but what happens when it grows even larger - does it get reset again?

Hey Mickey, I have about 90 nukes. Le'me use 'em before the apocalypse! ...

"Yes gentlemen, they are on their way in and no one can bring them back. For the sake of our country and our way of life, I suggest you get the rest of SAC in after them, otherwise we will be totally destroyed by red retaliation.
My boys will give you the best kind of start, fourteen hundred megatons worth, and you sure as hell won't stop them now.
So let's get going. There's no other choice. God willing, we will prevail in peace and freedom from fear and in true health through the purity and essence of our natural fluids.
God bless you all."

"We must protect the purity of our precious bodily fluids."

Probably not, although we'll likely reset once the game goes out of beta (somewhere way down the road).

The reason for this reset is to bring down all of the people that have accumulated mass Geos by exploiting the various holes in the system. I was trying to take care of them one by one, but it's gotten a bit out of control. Once all of the exploits are blocked, we can reset and everyone will be on even ground.

Why is this thread in the Feature Suggestions instead of Change Log or Gewar?

Ok so that was fun (not)

All resources gone and I only got to use my smaller army before Reklats wiped me out outside Madrid - 130,000 + troops lost without even getting to press attack.

You can reset it now :spin: :whine:

If the game's gonna be reset then we should have some anarchy going on! Maybe jewel exchange rate at 20 each for new/poor players. The GEW world is ruled by a handful of extremely rich and powerful players, let's get the small players get even...
The longer Mickey's waiting with the reset the more players the community will lose. I myself am not hunting jewels anymore or try to build up something if it's blown away soon anyway. Many players will feel the same.

Lukepuuk

Do try.
It's just a test. As Beta1 is coming to an end and a reset is coming, we just want to test out if one alliance really can occupy the world?
And wondering if we can be kicked back by normal players?
Just for a few days, promise.

Since the game is being reset, maybe I should join the fun for one last hurrah and then retire for good after the slate has been wiped clean for eveyone??

you shouldnt retire at all after the reset .......

Heck, yeah! You could un-retire completely...

And one other thing: are our homebases going to be removed too, so we have to replace them?

MIckey Can we have a 24 hour period after notification? I think if everyone were to start at the same time i.e after a system wide reset it would be "fairer". While I am on about 18 hours a day I could get set up fairly quickly, I also know how difficult it can be to start way behind. Also Please continue to ban scripts. Thanks.

That's what I'm thinking, too. :)

Yep. I figure this way you'll get a chance to place them a bit more strategically.

I'm planning on not announcing a time - just doing it. This would likely be most fair to everyone. I'll consider your idea, though.


Also Please continue to ban scripts.
I'll do my best.

I've had a couple of mines/fields/wells last for only 2 days! Now I'm all for the increase in output but when you have to wait 36 hours between planting a m/f/w that only lasts 12 hours longer than the waiting period...... Could we maybe decrease the waiting period now????? Or just tweak the length figure a little bit up?

Thanks,

I think that it is not a good idea, to allow alliances with more than 8 members, this gives the smaller alliances no chance!


Like it or hate it!

His Lord Uberdude
10-14-2005, 03:57 PM
Yes, it seems awful, but even when you had the limit on, we still managed to PM and communicate so we worked as one alliance.

As Uberdude has stated, limiting the number of people that can be in alliance is almost useless. When the original limit of 8 was set, the NA had 4 "cells" that acted as one. The were only split in theory. In reality, thy were all still the same alliance.
