No not here anyway. He never said they were forced.

The navigation and learning to play this site for a beginner absolutely sucks.
The forums are a joke.
The site still looks and plays like it was made in 2006, and hasnt been updated since.

I did some research on traffic, and they don't have a fraction of the traffic CC does (major command)... so it doesn't appear to be working. According to the site I was looking at, major command is the 980,000 ranked traffic site in the world. CC came in at around 92,000. I also compared CC to Pogo and they are around the 6,000 ranked site. In the last 6 months CC has seen about 500,000 engagements lasting on average 16 minutes. Pogo has 10.7 Million in the same time period. Major command's numbers are so low the site wouldn't even pop out a number for me. Anyway just some fun stuff when thinking about where CC stands in the grand scheme of online gaming. Don't get me wrong, Pogo is not meant to be a fair comparison to CC, totally different animal with alot more money going into advertising. I used a site called similarweb if anyone else wants to play around with it.
The community is still strong, but out of control discussions about politics and religion plague the forums and the concept of playing Risk online has been forgotten.

Also, I was doing well in the longest game I'd been in in Major Command about a year ago when I hit the debriefing bug - could never get past 2 stars loaded on debriefing and into game play. After telling them about the bug, but still being unable to play, I gave up. Tried again recently and still have the same problem - game play is impossible. A year ago they said they were working on the bug, but I guess they haven't fixed it.
I also took a break generally due to work pressures, but now summer break is here I'm glad to be back in CC, and have already won my first game back (British Isles, fog, trench - I love fog + trench games!)
