Diamond mines suck.

Diamond mines in the last few weeks really suck for most people I know.
Even these ’special‘ locations usually returning 500+ only give me a 100-200 diamonds per day. Something is definitively wrong here.
Couldn’t anyone from the crew be a bit less sadistic and remove the limiter there?

Also, all this nuking around has made the server really slow as a lot of people try to occupy cities. This results in nice things like Gaalkacyo, Somalia which has been owned by 10 people. Some of them already removed their armies, but the cities latest attacks still shows the facts.
There should really something be done. 3 of my alliance mates were inside and happy, and then it showed remember87 as the new owner…. 🙁


GEWar (finally) has ads

I have a news category, and I never use it… I should change this.

As a peg for this article the current event of ads on GEWar is a good idea. Shortly after they were put online, various people were in rage against them, but also a similar number of people supported it.

So what are my thoughts? In general, I hate ads. But what are the facts here? The server is incredibly slow, giving time outs all the time. If ads are to make Luke be able to afford a bigger (huge [giant {monster}]) server, then put them in. If they aren’t these wiggling, noisy flash things, they don’t really disturb you from playing. Only if…

Also, I got a load of PMs regarding Redux2. You know, the armies page didn’t work with the new ads in it. This shows how famous and common the script is, but also raises one question: if so many features are missed in the ’normal‘ GEWar, can’t some of them be implemented? This would highly reduce server load. I guess a lot of traffic on the server comes from Redux (so it is not like Redux, but a ’server killer‘)

Ok, that’s all from me today. I could continue, like write about AO’s raise or the new star ranking things, but they have already been well discussed in the forums.

If you have any comments regarding my posts, feel free to visit my Blog (link is right above this) and comment it 😉


PS: And while writing, a new ad has been implemented into the right bar. A wiggling, blinking one of course 😕

News on Martok’s GEWar Place

Hello everyone!

Most likely you come here because of my Redux2 script. I think I can guarantee most of its availability.
But one thing cannot be assured: the status tracker. It uses a cache on this server, but the database is sometimes instable. You might have noticed this in the past, but the outages are becoming more.
They are working very hard on this issue, and I think it will be resolved soon.
The good thing is: downloads will always be available. There might be some strange error messages on this very place, but this only affects the news.
This is the second news today: I have a news page 😉
It is run over my Blog, in a special category. That is why it is in danger of database problems.
