Okay I've made some new changes to the voting system. You'll see it labeled "V2.0 Beta". What's been changed? Well, when I started to log players to see who completed their vote or not I got a lot of complaints saying some voting sites won't accept the vote etc etc. It's funny that these errors come to me now and not before.
The problem is that you can vote at 11pm game time, then when it resets at midnight, you can vote again, so of course it won't work because you voted an hour ago!
So what's changed?
- When you vote it sticks a timer on that vote site. The vote site will NOT pop up again for another 24 hours (12 hours for the 12 hour ones). Which means you'll be able to fully vote once every 24 hours properly without any problems. This won't change the way the voting daily quest works. This will also take less lag off the main midnight reset.
- There has been some cosmetic layout changes done
- The 5 second block has been removed. Now we're logging all votes we have no need to for the 5 second block.
Please bear in mind you're still being logged and this...
...will happen to you when you're caught not completing your votes.
Everyones voting has been reset now. So you can vote NOW but when you do it will be 24 hours until you can again (doesn't matter if you've already voted today)
There may be glitches over the next 48 hours whilst we test this in the real environment, so if you're having issues, please report on this forum thread ONLY. We will be watching closely on this.
The coven life bonus was causing a lot of lag on the hourly reset. Now more people are battling because of the wars its started to creep up again. I've had a suggestion where I add turns half past every hour, and just the revival at top of hour. The turns would add HALF PAST each hour instead of ON the hour. (I.E 22:30 instead of 23:00) What do you think? Let us know on this forum thread.
