Going to wait on the reset for a day or two. 
I'd like some input on how to proceed, are you guys happy with 3mo rounds? 

I've detailed the reasons why I made the changes previously, but in short: 
- Turbo's fast turn rate meant those who couldn't babysit their accounts got left in the dust 
- Reg's slow turn rate was slow, to the point of being a little boring. 
- Never ending reg with a very small playerbase doesn't work, someone can entrench and be very nearly impossible to remove. 

Thus a medium turn rate that seems to allow people to log in once every day or two and remain competitive, while limited rounds mean if someone dominates it's not for too long. 

Turbo themes were fun and are still in the code (though potentially buggy, no idea if they still work right), the biggest problem is that most of them rely on at least 20 active players. 
Or they're just obnoxious. 

If you guys want to keep playing I don't mind keeping a game server open (and I'll try to reset on time). 
Just want some feedback.

Firstly, I find the 3 month sets way too long. People give up if they get a beating halfway in the set. Eventhough there's often still time enough to catch up. Basicly most people lose motivation and interest when they see someone doing well. 1 month sets might keep people motivated longer. I've played two sets here now and midset I often find myself demotivated because it's another month.

Secondly, I find the game too landfat. Check last few sets. Numbers are insane. People won't sign  up halfway in the set when there's already 200k land in the game of if they see someone with 1 bil networth.

Thanks for getting the reset, windy

Not sure about turbo. I don't plan on playing much going forward, I just played to mess with the new market system the last couple of sets.

There's a reasonable argument to be made for shuttering the game at this point, but if people want to keep it running then it's not much of a drain on server resources (right?).

I want to say a decade or so ago our hosting co at the time made a comment about cpu usage, but yeah, running a game server now has zero impact. 

I don't mind monthly resets, and we can ditch the landfarm for a round. 
Or I can disable the landfarm's scout routine so it just catches dropped land.

3 months is tedious to play out to say the least. I disagree with the too much land sentiment. 1 month sets should be fine in regards to land.  Problem is some people dont even try to attack for land. They just assume its out of reach which is not the case at all.

Most people who are still playing are not doing it competitively, I think. The game doesn't work when only one or two people are playing to win.

Alright, we'll do a one month round with the same turn rate and see how it goes. 
The game isn't super fun when it's land starved, we'll leave the landfarm as is.  If it becomes a problem we can have the landfarm 'disappear' land as needed.
