People who vote no either already stopped, or are emo's.

So...what prompted this poll? Kinda random.

well mainly the nonexistence of age 4 beta nearly 3 months after the launch of age 3 2/3 and the fact that the game gets a little old after a while.

Ah...well for me, I guess we'll see what I think if/when the Age 4 beta appears.

With my new work commitments, don't think I can play next age, working 6 days a week, limited access during working hours and only an hour a day when I get home to click, prolly not worth my while.

Why play the game that is obviously pro admin/admin friends who are allowed to pass by.

Yes, because forcing other staff to get rid of their accounts or lose their rank is pro-us. Yes. Mmmmhmmm. Oh wait....

I think I posted in the Age 4 Beta thread about the complexities of writing a game entirely from scratch and still using industry best practices. The short of it is that it sucks, and deadlines are the last of your worries.

Yes. Need to do something to pass time. And community is the only reason that makes me wanna play, to be honest. Which is quite ironic as I think community is the basis of many problems we have.

Love the game as it is so feature rich but I can't stand another age like this one.
Rat packs of themselves are no biggy but when the pack contains practically all
the admins and moderators one can be forgiven for being more than a little wary.
Could I suddenly be accused of cheating and have my account deleted ?
Admins should not have time to play save to test for bugs but an account moderator
at number 2 rank just stinks.
I sent 2 messages to a high ranker and got suspended for 5 days.
For circumventing the ingame parser and harrasment...lol

What do you expect the mods/admins to do? sit around and do nothing while everyone else plays? Its not like they get paid. The whole reason they are doing that is they love the game and love to play it. If you think they are cheating thats your problem. I think they are doing a good job. Mabye instead of just complaining about them you should get on IRC and talk to them. You'll find they they are great people. (Tapchou excluded of course)
Mabye you should'nt break the rules if you don't want to get banned.

Hang on, lets take this issue by issue.

We have lives, and they don't revolve around coding the game. This is a part-time diversion, and playing the fruits of our labor is kinda the point. Furthermore, the Age 3 code is relatively mature. It has a few known non-critical bugs, and those have been shelved as development on Age 4 continues. Bug fixing is a non-issue, except when I attempt to add a feature at 3am and accidentally cause a rollback. Playing the game is also how we find the bugs. If we log in, bank, and log out, we'll never find that bug that happens after you sab 250 people in a row. (Hint: it changes your name to Rulemachine, and you gain double spy power. We're not sure why it does this.)

If you're referring to cliques when you say a rat pack (I'm assuming Sinatra doesn't play from beyond the grave), then yes, there's a rather large clique and it's been around long before RoC existed. Luckily for everyone, it's a pretty outgoing clique, and spans multiple alliances that are often on opposing sides. We're always looking to add more people to our cool kids clique, as long as you're willing to hang out and chat a bit.

High rankers are the ones who know the rules, and know how to get a hold of us quickly if someone breaks those rules. Sending a message and having it filtered is a great indication that you shouldn't be sending that message. Doing it again, and purposely bypassing the word filter is just plain old asking for trouble. Sending it to a high ranker who can report messages without the long-awaited "Report Message" button (it's coming, I swear!) is not just asking for trouble, but walking up and punching it in the face.

The problem for you isn't the powers-that-be playing, it's that the powers-that-be apparently did their job.

Andy I am very glad you didn't take anything personally. I wish you well and hope you can reintroduce some low bandwidth ads
and make money because you guys have certainly put some effort into all of this.
I must say that despite your assertion that I paid a proper penalty for my rule infringement I would never report a player
for insulting me. It would have to be some kind of death threat to get me moving.
No biggy Andy. I should really thank you because I can now move on from these games. I started in Age 2 KOC and moved to ROC
when it started. I can finally move on.
I wish you well.

I will if a new age starts soon. This one is dragging on for too long. If age 4 isn't finished yet, so be it but let a new age start anyway. people can have a fresh start, new players can decide to compete. People can switch clans and meet new people etc etc.

Just start Age 3 5/6 or something soon?

I dunno the polotics of the game, nor do I know how or why someone would want to play other than fair, I also just "Play"

LoL, I think Shakespere said it better.

KING HENRY V:
Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our English dead.
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility:
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
