Anti played a great game from a disadvantaged position. He basically destroyed my entire primary army and did better than most would have. That's not only a rude statement, its not very accurate.

Oh, I guess I have misjudged that situation over there a bit. I wish I had more scouts there I meant no disrespect for anti, I just said it was quite sad to watch him go down so fast. When I heard about the war starting I really hoped he can survive longer. Too bad he came into game and faced threat like that, before getting accustomed with his own nation.

In celebration of the college football season starting tonight, and a full slate of games this Saturday, hosting time for Kingmaker will be set back an additional 48 hours to allow players to enjoy tonight and the 1st weekend of college football without worrying about invasion from Giants, or undead etc.

This gratuitous delay coincides with Llamaserver being down for maintenance for 48 hours, so the game would have been delayed in any event, but it is the thought that counts!

Clarification:
*this* turn should be done with 3.17. *next* turn should be done with 3.20. Correct?

i updated to 3.20. llamaserver is already 3.20. so I will be sending in my turn with the new version. However, Llamabeast says it does not matter which version you use for this turn, but next turn must be 3.20.

However, to play it safe, i am using the same version as the server.

Awesome, I have a live fantasy football draft (aka an excuse to drink beer and grill burgers) this Saturday so the extra time will be put to good use . Thanks!

Default Re: KingMaker - let the Ascension War commence!

An unexpected problem has arisen. New Orleans may be under a mandatory evacuation order before Llamaserver comes back up. They are talking about a mandatory evacuation of the city 8/30/08, the same day Llamaserver is expected back up. As you might imagine, that also leaves me with many things to do today besides dominions.

If that happens, I will be out of the loop indefinitely(3-4 days) and will not be able to do anything to the game(while many may be quietly cheering at that prospect). But I will not be able to change Hadrian back, will not be able to make sure that everyone has a fresh 48 hours to get in their turns, and will likely stale turn myself(though I will certainly look for a sub).

To make matters worse, 2 weeks ago my laptop died(wtg HP) and some tech told me it would be cheaper to buy a new one than repair my 2 year old HP laptop. So I do not have the means to do stuff even if my hotel has internet.


Llamabeast has quite recently said he does not have the time to admin. this game, and
I prefer not to get anyone playing in the game to admin. it while I am away. And I am also not likely to turn over the keys to anyone i do not know well. But i will try to think of something, but the game may just be on autopilot for 3 or 4 days.

The worst effect of that will be Hadrian will have to continue to watch his capable sub wreck havoc on the world, and it is going to be pot luck what the game timer will be when the server comes back online.

"[Mayor] Nagin said during an earlier City Hall briefing that it is "very probable" he will call a mandatory evacuation for New Orleans, though likely not any sooner than Saturday morning."

Oh, that's no worry, I can forward the turns easy enough. Also have a place to stay in Houston if you need one.

Thanks for the offer Baalz.

I have close relatives in Houston myself, though it looks as though we may be visiting relatives in Dallas this time(: My football fan relatives are in Houston, and it is closer to New Orleans, so that was my vote. Since we are going to Dallas, you can see the value of my vote in my household(:
