Ouch. I fell for it. For like, the first 10 seconds.

This was possibly the world's most unfunny April Fools Joke.

If the admi menu is also legitimate...who will zero it out? And if its real that means to me that Conquer Club CAN be rigged like so many complain about. If that is the case you will lose a premium member here.

To those who are saying it's the worst April Fools' joke because it didn't fool you...do you think it could possibly have something to do with, you know, the fact that people are *diligently on the lookout for April Fools jokes* on April Fools Day?

If they do it on another day, it's not an April Fools joke. If they do it on April Fools' Day, then they have to deal with a populus that has its guard up a lot higher than it would be at any other time of the year. Such is life.

The first step to achieving a great April Fools joke is to have people forget that it's April Fools' Day...which also happens to be the most difficult step.

my reason for thinking this is a bad joke has nothing to do with that. in fact, i did fall for it...until i looked at the forums. i don't think it's funny simply because of the dice adjustments panel. it's not funny to joke about rigging the game like that. and how do we know that this isn't actually true. that the real admins truly DO have the power to adjust dice?

If you truly believe the administrators have that kind of power, you should not be on this site. It's been proven time and time again that the dice are fair and balanced, despite continual complaints of unfair, unrealistic, or biased dice. Not to mention you have the ability to look up anyone's recent dice stats - including the administrators.

It shows that CC is aware of what the community values and thus what would make an appropriate joke.

Lol, at first I thought wow somebody must've screwed up and aren't I lucky. Then I realized wait its april fools. Then I saw it was hacked and thought yay, as long as they don't steal personal info from me. Then it hit me and I realized wait, why would april fools day be the holiday they do nothing for. (Plus the whole admin tools seemed weird to me) they had me going for a while. I felt kind of dumb at first for not noticing. I always love a good april fools day joke.

The dice adjustment thing was a dead giveaway. If they'd made an admin menu that looked real I might have fallen for it, but that was obviously fake.

and for all the complainers....this is a very well executed joke, so good indeed that certain "clever" actually think that you can "fix" the dice.

If you want an example of a disastrous CC aprils joke, remeber Cutesy Club....oh, my eyes are still sore
