That suggests that a skilled Conquer Club player beats a poor conquer club player 20 times for every one time the poor player wins. That is absurd. The rating system should account for skill level to a degree but the current system is horrendous. You might as well not have ratings at all if you are going to accept this absurd system.

Definite grounds for C&A, I just hope C&A gets abolished before I can submit my full report.

Haha. Yes that was me and a co-worker once upon a time. I discovered CC and loved it. He tried it but couldn't handle the unlucky dice - as you can see from his barely coherent rant he was close to smashing his keyboard. We worked only a few desks away from each other and I would watch the veins pop out of his neck as he played. It was wildly entertaining but he didn't last long. Now I cant even remember what his PCE handle stood for - I think it was offensive...

I hope I'm not judged too harshly for game comments I made 5+ years ago. I was young and, like most people, I though anonymous online gaming was a reasonably safe place to vent frustration. Never in a million years did I imagine a scenario where I would find myself at the helm of this almighty empire. Part of the beauty of CC is that it can be so cruel and unforgiving when the luck runs against us. I love that simple graphics and random dice rolls can inflict so much joy and suffering into my life on daily basis. If it wasn't for the occasional fit of rage induced by CC I probably would have moved on long ago.

I will try to pop into the forums more often but I doubt my post count will ever reach a very respectable number. I am a lurker unless I feel I can add value to a conversation.

I'm sorry if everyone was expecting more dramatic changes right away. My goals have been a smooth transition and not to make any rash decisions that might piss people off. As it is, most of the really good suggestions are big changes that will require quite a bit of developer time.

I'm open to any suggestions for measuring my performance here - total # of games or total # of active players both seem pretty solid. Give me a few months to show some real improvements and then feel free to tear into me if you don't like the way things are going.

Interesting wording in one of El Jefe's early games. Who is Dave? That's not an Indonesian game. There must be a proxy.

El Jefe


I've been where you were.

I think new blood at the helm is a blessing. I have plenty of suggestions, but have never voiced them. At least now, we have someone whom we can communicate them to, instead of an invisible leader. Welcome aboard. =D>

As El Jefe has mentioned, our number one priority has been making sure the transition is smooth, so when his Team takes over, they don't need to back track. Additionally, we didn't think it was fair to continue to keep the Community in dark about why there has been a lull in updates and official feedback on items for the last while! I'm sure El Jefe and his Team, and Lack as well since he'll be around still contributing and update or two as well, tear into some of the great long standing suggestions. :D
