I dont think creating countries is a problem unless it happened today given the Express server round started yesterday. You must mean accounts, which after testing does appear to be an issue at the moment. Anyone with an EE account should be fine unless they forgot their login.

And yes, I can often get word to the current admins directly with urgent issues... But it doesn't necessarily mean they have the time or ability for an immediate fix. I'll update as I'm able. Moving to B&S.

I say if they get fixed, it would be better to hold off and reintroduce them next reset than insert them in the middle of the current sets. Just my $0.02.



With multiple bot servers with varying start/end times, this is unlikely.

This is unplanned so we cannot really say for sure either way. It just needs to go through the debugging process. When they do come back up, theres a good chance the timing won't coincide with round start/end on a particular game server

Personally, I'd hit the player if you're looking for a top spot and you were sure the immediate gains were going to be even. Even with the risk of retaliation I'd still consider occassionally choosing a player over a NPC. Bots dont finish #1, players do. Going for an easy no-risk gain by not directly hurting your competition is a player choice. Hell, if countries werent close to 90% jets the market would actually improve too. Let them farm bots around the clock and then take the land off them (or at least exchange and create some ghosties). Quit being sissies and dont be afraid to occasionally punch your competition in the mouth.

If the only edge you had in this was spy count, it seems unlikely it's just game mechanics keeping you from killing this country.

Again, this is not a game server availability issue. Players chose to use established game servers primarily for netting instead of war. This has little to do with game development in my opinion. There are three clan servers that are setup to war with other players and one could easily war 1on1 in Express.

In many cases, I agree. But I strongly believe there are still exceptions to this idea. I've never been a great netter, but (when I played) let me pick a handful of my best guys in FFA, and there'd be an old-fashioned whoopin.

Accounts are activated through email verification. If that's all you need, check the email you used on the other account. Using a fake email or one you cannot access prevents you from activating.

As far as moving forum handles to another game account, this cannot be done. You can only make/claim new and unclaimed ones

tried to delete but could not so I just quit.


I'm sorry you feel that way. The recent deletion in Express was the final straw in me making the decision to disable his game account. He was given multiple opportunities to play by the rules and chose not to. I think he actually was banned for a period time from the express server but his deletions (more than I care to count) span across multiple game servers, not just one. I laid it out very clear for him not long ago that if he continued to cheat and be deleted, he would lose the opportunity to play the game. This is on him.

There is no rule against this "griefing" word that you use.

Originally posted by farmer:

His deletions are many in number across several game servers.

Originally posted by g0nz0:

Prime thinks ratski and maj1 are the same person. I've read there's some heckin valid crack being sold as of late at the pipe is red hot. He/they are banned across all servers until prime quietly, in a pm, admits that ratski and maj1 are not the same person. Until he gets around to that we pretend that collusion is a system-wide permanent ban, even though clans share info and targets in solo servers on the regular. So we'll see ratski back in a week or so.


There is very strong evidence they are either the same person or sharing accounts, although that is not the reason for his account being disabled, which I feel I've stated already. Your continued mod trolling is as invalid as it is annoying. I continue to strongly suggest you wind it back a tad if you enjoy using the forums.

Both accounts are disabled from playing any game server until further notice. I've warned repeatedly this would happen. Plus, I'm not totally convinced yet the accounts arent being run by the same person. Play by the rules or lose the ability to play at all.

Where is tella? It wasn't a slander on the mods but it is a fact they gave up on SOTS otherwise we would still have it.



I disagree with that part. While I'm sure enforcing SOTS rules was a pain in the ass, there was overwhelming support from everyone to remove it. A couple years after it was removed there were discussions here about bringing it back and the player support for it was slim. If there was large support and good arguments for it now, I see no reason we wouldn't at least consider it.


And how active were you back then because I was :D



Hard to say. It was 7 years ago and I never had an overly strong opinion of this server as a player. But you'll find the suspension of SOTS thread on page 44 here at the moment.

It's a 5 day game that is offset primarily by turn timing and storage limit increases.
If you dont like the turn mechanics in Express, I'd suggest playing another game server instead.
