Speed Up The Game
Speed up the game, more Assassin Medals, more Rank Medals for players who have reached Executive General or higher. From now on you would be able to play your favorite risk games at fast loading speed.
So anyone who was here last year is aware that this site had seen some troubled times. Most of us remember freezes, crashes, 0-troop bugs, and general unplayability. And to top it all off, we didn’t even get Medals!
Well, a lot of that is in the past now, this is not to say that things are perfect, there are still bugs, glitches, and logs, but for the most part, things are WAY better than they were and we are not constantly “rebooting the server”! – We also have medals now too! 🙂
Now the ultimate goal has always been a complete recode, but patching up the immediate problems has taken time away from reaching that goal. That is about to change. From this point forward, we will no longer focus on daily bug fixing, and we will go full speed forward with the recode. We think we have done as much as we can to make the site as “playable” as it can be under the current code structure, and now we are going to focus on making it totally awesome! No more risk of slow loading games.
The First thing
I would like to mention, is that we have hired a new coder! Georgy (a power Risk game player) will be assisting Marcos in this recode. Things should really speed up once Marcos has finished establishing a workable environment for him
Speaking of medals, we have more Medals! We are introducing our absolutely gorgeous Assassin Medals! And yes, they will be retroactive, so if you have been slack in playing an assassin, it’s not too late to get your Assassin on!
Speaking of Medals. Back in March we introduced Rank Medals for players who have reached Executive General or higher. Those medals were only available to the player who reached that rank recently, however, with this current update, we should also be able to award those Medals retroactively. So if you were a Legion General 2 years ago, hold your hat, a new shiny Rank Medal should be coming your way!
The donations drive will be ending shortly. We are close to 100 donors and expect to be there by the end of the month. If not, I will put a deadline of midnight May 31 on it regardless of the count. Which means that next month you should all be expecting extended memberships, exclusive tournament invites, and a new service award on your profile page. But that is not all you should expect, you should all expect great thanks and gratitude knowing that you have all helped fund the last 2 months of fixes and coding. That generous contribution has paved the way for us to not only have a semi-functional site but to also start a new code base and help move forward with some more awesomeness!
Thank you all again immensely for all your support!
You know the drill!
Wish us luck!
