If that happens, I will honestly tell them to piss off and not in a nice way.


The number of posts also seem to be dropping, have people just been dwindling away ? Or has their been a pettiness with people lsong interest if poll outcome hasnt went with their preference ??

Resource, expanding and no bonus should all change their votes as there is a two horse race!

Winner is:

gilligan and enders got the British soldiers wrong. gilligan included Scheiss but missed out one of the Jones. enders thought it was a typo and named all men that won the VC.

Christian Ferdinand Schiess was a Swiss recipient of the Victoria Cross, the highest and most prestigious award for gallantry in the face of the enemy that can be awarded to British and Commonwealth forces and a corporal in the Natal Native Contingent, South African Forces during the Zulu War.

Since Resource style is overpowered by Classic gameplay and Classic with key, I switched my vote to the key one. Otherwise my vote would go nowhere :)
