Re: Speed Game and Next Round Info

I've been away the past couple days, and set it to start up.  Guess, I'll have to manually start it. 

Let's try again tonight (Sunday, July 15) 21:00 game time, and have it end Wed, July 18, 21:00 game time.

Re: Speed Game and Next Round Info

There are some suggestions in this thread that would be easy to implement with little or no coding: http://forums.alliancewars.com/viewtopic.php?id=4593

Here's what I've done so far for the next round:
- Lowered the UP tax rate to 20%.
- Increased the UP bashing level to 30%.

Discuss and rant on these these changes below.
