10 Questions You've Always Wanted To Ask About Conquer Club!

Postby nagerous on Thu Mar 25, 2010 9:29 am

And now for something completely different...

Got a question you've always wanted to pose to the Conquer Club administration? Well here is the place to ask it. In the next edition we have a special interrogation of the heads of Conquer Club about the workings of this website. A fun selection of the ten best questions asked will be answered in issue 29 of CC Dispatch so start coming up with ideas!

Has Andy ever abused his authority by wanting bananas instead of points awarded for wins? :?

What is the turnover generated by CC?
How much merchandise has actually been sold?

I am sure we'd all love to know how much money is made off this site.

Cheers, JB ;)

Would lack ever consider hiring a programmer to assist? I know it was planned at one time (look at announcements) but I don't think anything ever came of it. I bet there are a number of people on the site who would be willing to pony up for additional medals, game options, bug fixes, etc. There are a number of great suggestions made that seem to go nowhere. I know this is lack's baby, but I think the majority of players would like to see more enhancements and an additional programmer seems like the fastest way to get that to happen.

Keep the questions coming, this might be as close as you ever get to an interview with lackattack, though the whole administration team will be involved in the answering process.

I once lost 87 armies to zero on a single auto-attack during a Classic map freestyle speed game. Has anyone ever experienced worse luck in a single attack or am I the record holder?

The number of rolls needed for that to happen has about 40 digits. Absolutely ridiculous.

Was making this site a pet project that turned into a job?

Has CC fallen short to, met, or succeeded your goals and expectations since first being open?

Ridiculously bad luck, I agree, yet verified by the CC admin. I still have the email to prove it.
40 digits is no big deal, I've got 20 on my hands and feet now. If I grow 4 more feet, I'll have all 40 :-D
