Questions for the mods

I know some other mod had a blog where they answered questions from the players, and because I can think of nothing else to say that the players would find particularly interesting, if any players have any questions for senior staff, feel free to ask. No promises you'll get an answer however.

This blog will also give me the opportunity to do another thing I like to do - Bash the other senior staffers.

I kid I kid, we all get along pretty great.

Oh! I have a question!

A month ago (maybe more) the Lunar/Mars Base topic in the Suggestion box was closed. Is there are news regarding this idea? Has it been scraped? Is Admin working on it?

Why do you always mess with game mechanics during or right before GWs?

I wouldn't call it "messing with game mechanics" but "fixing problems and continuing game development" instead. Big wars tend to really stress test everything including game mechanics, and often during these times of peak traffic issues pop up that need to be corrected immediately. Unfortunately/Fortunately, whichever way you see it, game development and bug fixes can't always be scheduled around in-game politics. Granted all of the changes made recently are pretty minor so it shouldn't be outcome changing for anyone.

That's not what I mean. If I recall correctly, wonders came right after UJW, instant anarchy got removed right before GW3, the nuke rule got changed for UJW (24 hour limit), and just various changes to the war machine either right before GW's or right after.

Just wondering why. It's something I've noticed over the years playing this. Is it for amusement, unintentional, wha?

Did you even read my response?? I explained the need for continued development and bug/exploit corrections regardless of in-game politics in my first reply to you.

Is Maroon your favorite sphere?

No.

You are clearly tasteless. I, like smith before me, recognize that Maroon is the one true sphere of greatness.

Perhaps I am tasteless, but Maroon is still not my favorite sphere.

Whats your favorite sphere admin :P.

And how would you feel about a wonder that lets you stockpile resources so that if a trade is canceled you would be able to keep that trade for a select amount of days (I was thinking like 5)...

Also, are there ever going to be more wonders added to the game, I'm all out of economic wonders now, and I only have a few military wonders left, I could care less if its +1 pop happi, I'd buy it :P.
