Suggestion related to new features:
Countries should not be able to exchange cash for gold coins while at war.
(all save wartime should skip the following)
Wartime, The war timing is a non-issue. It does not handicap an aggressor. The trouble you are going to to plan your war-times is not necesary. It doesnt really handicap a defender either. The server processing times will always be in flux, the timing will never be constant. They could probably not 'peg' the timing to 24 hours (or 36, whatever) even if they wanted to. If you cannot plan your wars, then it is your problem
Would you think it less 'retarded' if it were exactly 24 hours? what not 33.5 hours? or 19? whatever time limit chosen is arbitrary, and since an attacker will proably declare at a reasonable time (for him or her),and this is a very international game,there is a good change the other party will be in a differnt time zone (and have many hours pass just before they even wake up), I think the way things work now is quite fair.
a 24 hour 'peg' would not help most folks either. My federation on FB is spread out through at least 7 or seven time zones. Wars would start earlier for some and later for others. itd be the same for everyone else, although this relaly wouldnlt matter either -like I said the times the wars start doesnt really matter, youve got a 32 hour window in which to start things.
All that matters is that a defender has a decent amount of time to respond (at least a real day)
Waiting a month or 2 or 3 extra makes no difference. If you cant fight a war for a little while, so what? happens to me all the time. You can make 1 unit token attacks to keep a war active , as long as you make 1 such attack every 32 hours (on FB) all will be well. Surely anyone who wanted to go through the trouble of declaring war could log in once for 5 minutes every 32 hours.
Extending the time it takes a war to lapse now that the servers are faster is a good idea though in my humble opinion. Also it would be nice if there were some kind of regular schedule for month changes, but as this is related to processing time, it might not be really possible.
And yes you do sound like youre whining about something thats not very important Think of all the more important things you could be putting in here instead...
