Only reason I'm still here is for live chat and the forums. Forums like we have here are hard to come by in the gaming world, and it's the only real source of pride this site has left.



Like someone said above--The site is the site--it really has not changed in any crazy way. I think if I found the site for the first time today--I would love it. I personally have worn out any love for the game/site from playing too many games and losing too many friends. We used to have so much fun--even enough to get each others phone numbers and chat about CC and real life things. It has all faded now. I did gain a real life friend from this site and our families get together once in a while--I just wish I would like it again, but have not found a way to enjoy the site and even contemplate leaving. I let most of my tourneys go that I was running--and if it was not for the 200th I probably would have at least taken a vacation from the site--probably need to do that.

Sounds like a good idea, I've been on and off a couple of times and it makes me realize why I come back. If you don't find that motivation then it's better to do something else, if you do find that motivation then that's great, then you're having fun again. So it's a win win situation really.

I did lose love for the site a couple of years ago, but now I`m back and addicted more than ever.

I doubt that I`ll ever have 35000 games, though. :D

By the way, since we are talking about it, I think that CC is exactly the same as it was when I joined the site 4 years ago. And that`s its biggest problem.

When I had first joined a little over 3 years ago, I was here for 6 months, then took a couple months off. I've been here continuously since. Getting premium was the staple in my activity. I think I've played more games than the other Admins combined 8-).

How many, really?

Several gameplay changes, but they`re not actually used. Miss.

Several medals added. Minor issues.

Several additional ways to donate money: gifts, conquer cup (the one where you pay to be a part of, not the real one) etc.

The only real difference are maps and scripts, but they are made by the community.

In fact this site is 99% run by the community, site owners are sitting in their chairs and collecting the money. When something real is asked for, they say that they`ll put it in the queue, but it stays there forever. We get all but nothing in return for premium and honestly I`m starting to feel a bit fed up with this shit.

This is a site for playing a board game that looks similar to RISK.
4 years ago you could play RISK here, and now you still can, there will never be major changes to this site because it's not necessarily.

Major changes for me are features like Fog of War and Trench Warfare, and I love them, but I would still have loved this site without those features.

This site offers 10 times more then you could ever accomplish with the board game, except for a few beers with some good friends, but hey, were all geeks playing RISK online so how cares :D ?

For 25 American dollars Or the equivalent of a 1/4 tank of gasoline, I believe the site is a great value. I seriously doubt if anyone is getting tremendously wealthy from the income premium membership brings in.

I love a game of CC, but 35.000 is crazy, it's like I love pizza, but when I would eat 35.000 pizza's I probabbly would barf them all over my keyboard.

Take a break from CC, a real break, and you might find your love back. I rediscovered this site already 4 or 5 times (with breaks up to almost a year) but I keep coming back, and every time I return a bit of that old love returns with me.


Exactly... i don't think i would have managed 35,000 games in the 7 years i've almost been here even if i was unemployed during that time and devoted my time on CC. It's insane.

Right now the site probably has more interest more than at any time during the past but with no real break in almost 2 years now i know it's just a matter of time before i'm going to need a few months away. Guess it helps never having more than 20 games ongoing as any given time though.

35,000 game?!?!? how is that possible? No job? No human contact, never mind a girlfriend/wife? Any friends at all actually ... I've been unemployed during my time here, hell i'm not working now until i go back to Peru in a month but still i haven't reached 1000 games and find it impossible to spend hours and hours here per day. It's nice to come here and waste away a couple of hours bit there's just so many more things to do...

I agree. I think it is you HA that has changed, while CC has become 10 times what it once was at least.


Haha............you're joking right?


not even a little

Delusional people always cracks me up.


Its not a delusion, its just that the changes that you hate, the majority of us actually like. In fact, a few more people like you leave, and the place will be even better. :D

4 years ago you could play RISK here, and now you still can, there will never be major changes to this site because it's not necessarily.

I meant changes like account sitting feature, tournament hosting feature, clan war hosting feature and likes. Things that would allow us to spend our time here actually playing the game, or in a casual chat with our friends, not organizing tournaments and clan wars. The site should do that for us.
Major changes for me are features like Fog of War and Trench Warfare, and I love them, but I would still have loved this site without those features.

Yes, fog of war is a great feature, although it was here when I signed up. Trench warfare is the only other gameplay feature introduced in the meantime that has a potential to be used as much as fog of war.
You realize the site is just recently under new management, right?

Yes, and this is exactly why I`m talking about it right now. Because it might influence them. Previous owner didn`t give a shit, apparently.
For 25 American dollars Or the equivalent of a 1/4 tank of gasoline, I believe the site is a great value. I seriously doubt if anyone is getting tremendously wealthy from the income premium membership brings in.

I beg to disagree.

I have changed and part of the problem is that I got bored with this site.

Most of the problem is that many players that were very good and basically my friends have left.

For a site that is so much better, 10 time by your opinion, explain why there is 25% less players active (aprox 15000 rather than 20000) and why there is about 40% less players playing at any given time. 1300 on avg from the past to about 750 now. You find about half the speed games you would have been able to find in the past.

Like I said, the old players--the more Risk type players from the past are leaving in groves. The new players are not staying as long. It is not what it used to be even though they have added many new features. I am not degrading the site itself--it is the players that make the site--and those players are not around as much--based on sheer numbers and my own personal experience.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.
