I'l add you, Manoj. IST time is 3.5 hours ahead of Finnish time it seems. Since the time difference to the US is so much bigger, and we might have more players from there, I guess we'll lean slightly towards a later starting time. 9 PM GMT is 11 PM Finnish time... I'd be willing to play a lot longer than that (on Saturday at least); but otoh if we start at 2 PM GMT, that will give you 7 hours of play-time, and the Americans will start at 6 AM, which is a little early but manageable, I guess. So after juggling all these numbers ( ), 2 PM GMT seems like it might be a good time to start, whether it's on Sunday or Saturday. Ofc this might (and likely will) change as more people sign up, but let's eyeball that time-frame for now. The world age setting of 'New' will simply add more mountains, which I think would be nice to have as natural defense lines, as otherwise people who spawn in the middle of the map might have a very rough game ahead. I kind of wish there was a way to dictate the spawn points somehow, so that no one spawns directly in the middle, but ehh, for now this is the best option for mitigation that we have. So, I'd rather keep it as 'New', because I see little harm and potentially a lot of good in this. As there seems to be a lot of support for having barbs and goody huts in the game, I guess we might leave them on after all. Let's hear some more opinions though (and of the new scoring system and game speed as well).
