OK 2 of the 9 players in the game Stacked in your Favor have requested a restart.
At the suggestion of the moderators and expert players on Desura as of now this game will be RESTARTED.
For clarity we will no longer refer to the game as very casual or newbie since we were not specfic about what those meant.

All players who do not have a login on the official Dominions 3 forum at Desura, and do not announce themselves in that thread will not be allowed to play.

The restarted game will be called StackedUp and will be on a different port.

Jon did you want to continue playing in that game?
So far it seems like there is more interest in continuing the old one than in the restart. Both are running but if the old one continues I will probably have to create a thread for it here (in the MP area).

No, that is not what I mean. All your statements together just triggered my 'the dude is trolling' buttons.

Hi GP. I'm not sure why, but I've submitted another turn a while back; if it continues I may do same just OOI to see how it progresses, I'm happy whether you continue it or cease it!

Yeah Jon that seems to be the way it is going. So far two groups. A couple had complaints and asked for a restart but apparently are not going to play in it. So far only one person has joined the restart.

The rest complained mostly about the thread. So I think we will leave the original game running in the "very casual" form it was set up in. If I start a new thread for it I will email you the address.

To the people who complained more about the thread and that the "Stacked in your Favor" game was starting to become not as casual as you thought when you joined:
Please be patient with the new moderators at the new forum. They are still ironing out the things they will require for a game to be run there.

You can see that in our little game thread where many things were ironed out that are not present in the other games on that forum. They were not picking on us alone. The changes discussed with us are now appearing in the official game template to define things for future games there.

At present I am still considering another fun game variant. This time for higher level players. Possibly a "Civil War" variation where everyone plays Ulm and it comes down to only who has the better strategy. Or maybe a "Musical Chairs" game. Or both
