The resets have killed most of the nations, and this world is pretty empty. Empty worlds make it harder to form useful federations, and are not conducive to forming friendships with neighbouring countries. Ending the resets will keep players interested, and once they have a good enough country they may take the plunge into Golden Rainbow. Give them the time they need to mould their country, and END THE RESET!!

Hi ya just looking at my country once named opus.. the resets did almost kill it.. what was a thriving country with 4000.b in cash assets it is now 300b in debt..I didnt think that resets would put it on al automatic thusly ruining the country. almost all corps not producing hireing or selling. Continual resets is not good for your thoughts of getting new intrests in these games. Please stop the resets. I would also think that cash awards here are quite nonsencical. Maybe remove the awards, you new rules make it so, and make it back where war in a peaceful world is needed to achieve the top possition. As ever Puffy.

Ok nothing good to report other than resets took all my strategic and offensive stuff..not good not good. Shakes head, tsk tsk tsk. I think now there is plenty of room now to entice new players to the game however the drawbacks to haveing them come and play here outweigh them even purchase game time rediculous. Too many good players have left and that is so sad. Maybe to save bandwidth the game could reset the message boards too, I mean like we need all those back messages from people no longer playing. Oh shut my mouth..We would have to re-message any new players how to again..But then lets not make it easy for everyone whos staying right?...naw not lets do that.. I bet staff people just laugh all day long at complaints. I am going to check neighbors now and see if any near enough to bomb the crap out of me, and make treaties for no good reason with unoccupied countries lol. That is if I have neighbors left? puffy!

I don't think the resets are all bad, but I do think they could be better implemented. I think the first reset to hit a president should be 6-8 months after his/her first login as prez in that world. This would give n00bs time to learn the ins and outs of the game. People that stay on the free worlds after being reset should thereafter be reset at the current rate of once every 3 months. Longer than that and the vets will jump right back to the top spots.
I also think the automation parameters should NOT be messed with during reset. If a player has decided what to put for the parameters, why presume that s/he will want to change them when s/he doesn't want them changed 99% of the time?

Wouldn't someone just make a new account to get the full 8 months instead of continueing with their current country. I will personally see all multi's to a endless life of sufferring...

yes the resets are deffinately bad..my country would be buying to build an army..and at reset all the strategic and offensive be removed..loss of monies from the country and loss of buildings on each reset...so why bother having war at all? remove the war feature I think not. stopthe resets definately. As for vet jumping right back upp to the top.. not... they have the choice to not take the awards..to beat top countries one needs to defeat thier country at war. Even a top country can be defeated by another lower country should the resources of millitary is built more that the country being attacked. It can be done. I do not think we have the problem of multies now. So I assume you think that one president with more than one country is a multi player. Not true. I belive they are gone due to the resets. The resets are only a guise to get us to quit this free game feature and buy in the other worlds, or move these countries to a paying world, plain and simple. If you are looking at my rank and posstion in this world...I really dont care if I get to the top again, I have become bored with it now, with war feature meaning noting now I havent the desire to build an army. I am so close to just junking this game. I really dont know why I keep comming back. Maybe because of all the trials and tribulations I had while owning 29 countries and 4 feds at one time kept this game intresting, especially with all the players and communications amoung us. puffy is not happy with the way things are here now.

i agree they should stop the reset or atleast extend it for a yr it will give newbie a chance to understand the game and to get it into their blood as for some of us vets was injected!!! hell I'm still here but if i had joined when the reset was already in effect i would had left after my first reset after all it took me a yr just to understand the game!!!
Another Idea is if we're willing to pay we should have some kind of choice on which world we would rather be in. as for me I would rather pay and stay where I began 3 1/2 yrs ago I made many friends & allies along the way instead of moving to gr.

yeah, If I have to pay leave me here in this world...make it payable by billing to snail mail as well. I can do money orders then. I refuse to get online banking account and I dont do credit cards. I am on limited income, no checking account and my credit rating sucks. But I still feel that kids get the shaft here as they are limited income too..babysitting, lawn care, do the dishes type jobs. Yes I know that for the most part adults play this game but there are the smart kids out there, capable of understanding the game, who have ventured into this game and have succeded till the resets. puffy

They couldn't handle it. There were too many people playing the game. It was too popular. They couldn't handle the overload & had to bail out to just become nobodies...
