Topic: Next Round Delayed

I haven't had time to look at the server problems yet, and since I will be on vacation Wednesday of next week for a week, the start of next round will be delayed at least 3-4 weeks.

To be honest I have considered pulling the plug on the game permanently.  There are just other things in my life I would rather put my time and energy towards.  I have asked the other devs their opinion, and so far there is interest in still developing the game.   There has been a suggestion to shut the game down for a year, then come back with more features coded.

Anyway, I must start getting ready for a much needed vacation.  A real vacation, away from all things technical.

Re: Next Round Delayed

I think there is still a huge demand from the community to keep the game running postal. If you dont wish to keep working on it thats fine. I doubt any of us will pressure or ridicule you. However It would make my day if you could keep the normal rounds going. Speeds and Havoc's are just a nice distraction at the end of a hard faught round. I could live without them...and have. 

Earnestly await the next Real Round,

Re: Next Round Delayed

or, if that's too much work, keep the forums, and have monthly speeders...

Seriously I have no concept of what to do with my life if I am not playing Aw (even if terribly in-actively)

Re: Next Round Delayed

When I get home in June I will do whatever is necessary to keep the game running. Throw it on my servers, run the administration, run the ticker, whatever.
