There are a whole lot more sequential games. and I agree that it should be default. The one problem I see is this:

HASBRO has RISK, which is played sequentially. The freestyle play of ConquerClub is what set us apart.

Not sure if that is a huge problem, since both are there, but having the default start be something different from RISK might be a good thing.

How so? People who want to n00b farm can continue to do so, by setting up a macro.

I wholeheartedly approve of it... new players would be more likely to have a positive first experience of the site.

I have no problem with the point farming (MOBA, rabbiton and torcav are actually fairly polite in their games with noobs), but it will be interesting to see whether these guys can maintain general without a steady supply of their staple diet.
RIGHT ON !!! Its a no-brainer.

So far, seems everyone is for, with none against. About all we can do more is to add a poll to perhaps better attract the "powers that be" attention.

Oh, ... add me to the "yes" column!

This seems like such a simple fix for Lack to do.
I support it.

Good work. I didn't screen shot it because I thought it might stick around but now its back to normal. Must have been testing something!

I was thinking maybe he was just embarrassed about his rank so he wanted to leave it a mystery :lol:

Great work btw lack. This was a simple, yet very important change to make. Should ease a lot of headaches from the new recruits who start their own games!

I would guess he was testing some of the other suggestions he just implemented. He banned new recruits from playing assassin two threads above this one, and was probably checking that the code was working properly.
