Update 1-11-19
Well I guess it`s time to post this update - In the interest of keeping speculation down and everyone in the loop - Here`s what`s going on currently behind-the-scenes:

Most of you have already noticed that the payment system for Gamestotal has been down for the better part of a year now. This has been a concern to me in regards to the servers remaining up. I`ve been trying to mitigate this possibility with a backup, so far so good.

Part of the issue with the game (and updating/changing the game, doing anything really) is GC`s architecture is ancient. It`s running on tech from 2000, and bringing this a little more up to date has been a major focus over the last while. If you`ve read the Patreon, you know I am also working on redoing the entire code-base for the game. It`s insanely disorganized and lacking in conventions across its files - This is why simple updates can take more time than you would like, and there`s plenty of potential for bugs to pop up.
I am aware of the bugs with VM and leaving VM, as well as server refresh and and goods not withdrawing from the market over the old maximum`s. Hopefully should have those corrected soon.

With regards to concerns about QA with updates, It`s hard to test anything when your total player base is what you would normally like as just a testing base. Sometimes it`s easier to push an update, and if needed change things down the line based on more in-depth assessments. Sometimes issues don`t pop up right away until all of you are playing and using new features regularly.

Paids for all!
Global Paids for all servers is now active, and will remain active as long as we`re at our goal. Thanks everyone!

Global Paids -
As we have reached the milestone, Global Paids have been activated. All empires in the game will receive a Paid status as long as the milestone remainds reached.

Empires who wish to not participate and have their status removed back to Free, please contact the admins.

For those who previously had Paid status, be advised that these days will carry over even while the Global Paids are in effect.

This means that if next month the milestone is not reached, your paid status will remain in effect while utilizing the time you got for your donation.

For this reason be advised that existing Paids will not be refunded for the reason of utilizing the Global Paids. This is in conjunction with the fact that donations are not subject to refund.

Thank you,

you can and probly will say it again Ender... if your going to fix something fix it dont 1/2 fix it

what ever lets keep pushing crab updates out that are make no sense
39day(s) ago
Baa, is been said a bunch but I guess it`s worth saying again. The reason diamond was op was because of how fast it could build. It`s per/PR stats weren`t and still aren`t an issue.

Agreed with Jammer about the artifact caps.

Still waiting for you to use your counter on me Jammer. If no one counters me, there`s no rush from coming out of DP. Live by the sword!!
55day(s) ago
For what it`s worth, my opinion on the artifact caps: Since digging and fighting are the only things to do in this game after capping infra and I don`t have time to focus on fighting. Since I`m maxed out in artifacts, I have no desire to play. I`m guessing others feel the same way, considering I`ve been sitting at my current power for 2 weeks without being bothered.

Nah, I play to fight, so makes more sense to make money from being successful fighting. If I`m not successful, I`ll go broke/die. All or nothing.

Could just play agri collective, they make amazing money

Ignore my last post. I`m just wanting the universe having just been handed the world. Never satisfied. Selfish Assassin. *shakes head at himself.

Can Collective tax penalty be quickly altered as well to reflect the 40% loss in margin on food prices? At least to make it so money can be made buying food at 8 rather than just 7 and below? Pretty pretty please?
