Yea so we need more points on the functional links to offset the ones lost due to the 3rd party site.

This doesn't really affect me since it really just levels the playing field for those spending bonus points on turns and booms. However, there are those who have been spending all their bonus points on Resource Decay, and it's central to their destocking method that it be maxed. As it is that won't happen, and these people will have simply wasted all these bonus points if nothing is done soon.

The definition of bonus tho is that you cant expect to get one. Its a bonus.

Do you expect a bonus every year at work in order to pay bills? I hope not.

Sorry LI I must agree there. I expect and get a bonus every year.
I actually get it twice a year lol. Once around summertime and once near Christmas.
It's regulated by dutch employing rules, the amount varies depending on what field you work in. But most fields have both bonusses. So yeah.... not to shoot you down :-P but in some countries it works that way.

bonuses are extra. Changes the situation to not have them, esp since things are priced based on the expectation, but it is just another hill on the battlefield to deal with.

But I do wish they would get it fixed. :)

There's really no reason to keep topping this thread. Nothing can be done about it from our side. It may be a better use of your time to pester the website that is actually having the issues - http://www.browsergamelist.com/

When this bonus was down in January I emailed them a few times but got no response. I could not find a contact area on their site so I just sent an email To:
and Cc: ;

Thing is, something could be done. A new site could be set up for the bonus, or you could just make the other two bonus sites worth 4 points each, which would mean 8 daily bonus points just like before. The latter seems like an extremely simple and easy change, so why can't it be done or even talked about?

I agree, why not just add the missing points on the other functional links. or just give x points to each country as compensation for the points lost due to the link being down.

Obviously that is not my call, but there is a Bugs and Suggestions board to discuss things like this since what you are asking is an actual game/development change.

Alternatively, the admins contact information is listed on the wiki page. http://wiki.earthempires.com/...Development_Team_Contacts

It may not be safe to assume that the admins are going to see this thread unless directly linked to it. It appears in an earlier post in this thread that at least izarcon is aware and has already acknowledged the issue.

Well, its not a bonus since its expected then. You guys need a new word. Its like you expect a losing trophy just for participation. Gov employees here call it individual cash reward.

So technically speaking, clicking the link, and getting points, is a reward, and not a requirement to the game :P
