    I don't know if it will come to this, but if the admins ask us, as a team, to vote on whether or not to upgrade, I'd vote NO: That is tantamount to changing the rules in the middle of the game.

    Of course, this could make it tougher for turnplayers, as they may need to have dual copies of the game on their computers.

    Anyone else have any thoughts on this?

    Yeah, that's a tough call. Sounds like the patch does some good things… but since the patch would especially harm 1 team, it's hard to see how that would be fair.

    So now it looks like a vote may happen on this....

    I'm for whatever will keep the game alive.

    I guess Piffle and Aloha weren't able to come to a peace arrangement while the game gets patched :(

    But unlike Mr. Robi D[epressing], I'm NOT in favor of letting this game die. I would even leave Epsilon and join another team if it would help keep the game going.

    Edit: Found them: RegentMan, Ginger_Ale

    I vote too/to (both are needed ;) ) (upgrade) as our chopping bonus will be easier to walk away from in favor of emancipation.

    So Conroe has held the game up. Conroe asked for the vote knowing that with 4 teams (and a slow game) that the vote will be too patch up.

    Interesting.... I think that with all the posting and messaging over the past few days Conroe could have squeeked the turn in? No?

    I think he is waiting for a patch as that stack of units will have an easier go if there are weaker cossacks...

    Upgrading will be easiest. Now do not forget that the new BTS patch has changed things in the Vanilla version.

    Correct. Here's something that was posted in the HOF forums that may be of use to some of you:

    I vote patch this game also.

    I'm ok with allowing some kind of mod to help the Cossacks, if there's a way to do that? Not sure who GA thinks is going to do that?

    I would think it would be more trouble than its worth adding a mod mid game.

    Though I'm about 15 hours late, I vote to patch as well.

    Maybe I'm just being paranoid, but I've got to wonder exactly why Conroe is waiting. I'm guessing his current moves will be dictated on whether we patch. He's a great player, so I don't see why not.

    I think you're almost certainly right Methos. I mean, it will be a big help to Piffle if Aloha's Cossacks get nerfed.

    On one hand, it's taking advantage of an unfortunate situation.
    On the other hand, it's the only logical thing to do if the game is about to be patched anyway.
