I get angry when things get to complex...

You roll MichaelCorleone over and then fish his wallet out from his back pocket...


Perhaps you thought my post reply to your post was soo funny that somehow it flamed you enough to mug me, without reading my profile first! "It's a waste of time and energy mugging me as i keep 99.9% of all my cash in the faction." Maybe you won't have wasted your energy and time fishing out my wallet to find no money if you spent 2 seconds more on carefully thinking through your actions! !

But i'm not against what you said in your post, i agree that we should have one man factions to war the HOF!

But i'd advice you to take a few deep breaths and think about what you're gonna do before you react to a post. Not like i was insulting you in anyway....


It was not that funny...
I only enjoyed the bit when you killed Ched...
Anyways, one more post should bury this lost cause...


xD Thanks for your assessment pal!

Don Coreleone: I volunteer to be your Luca Brazi


I'm sure you'd be a great Luca Brazi.

..Only I have no intention of sleeping with the fishes.

With Respect::


Hey what about gorgeous little mermaids!? But i have to admit, even i find it difficult to find the target when i'm aiming my little friend at them! (mermaids) ....Any one know how i can hook my fishing pole into a mermaid!!? I want to plant the Corleone flag into a mermaid with my fillet knife! I'm sure they'd like being stuffed with some nice Michael Corleone cream!!!

On another note: on a side note although I doubt anyone will listen, maybe a compromise would be too let all the factions that started before they decided too reverse the idea, should be allowed to keep their peaceful status....Any new ones created after Ched changed his mind, would have a 90 day limit. At least people who spent their money would not feel ripped off that way.


Yep, Cheds gotta find something to compensate us with!!

as much as i would like the peacefull factions to stay peacefull. i think after all these great posts going on with good ideas, ched hasn't replied once on it, which tells me either he has no interest in revisiting this major disaster ( which seems to be most peoples thoughts), or even trying to bring up a possible solution to it. Yes i understand its his game, but he also has to remember if it wasn't for the people playing the game, it wouldn't be where it is today. bringing in a change/update that seems to make most people happy usually is a good thing, but then to come out and say, it didnt go the way he hoped after people spent money on the change, and now its pretty much gonna go back to the same way as before with no real explanation other then only a few stayed in war mode, just seems to leave a bad taste in peoples mouth. but he seems to be pretty deaf on this, which tells me he isn't planing on changing it or coming up with a better solution. so hope the fight goes well with you all. good luck!


But if Ched thinks i'm gonna stop posting on this thread after he introduces the next great/pathetic update then he's WRONG!

Hey why do you guys think admins are starting new threads in announcements? To distract and divert all attention away from this thread.... You may also notice that though this thread has by far the most posts and frequent new posts, it's strangely going down the page, and soon would be on the second page....

See how deviously Ched and staff are working to force us to accept defeat!!? I take that as more insult!!

Which is why i will not stop posting on this thread, (EVER) until he satisfactorily compensates for removing peaceful status! I had only 5 posts before this thread, all of them in the factions forum. I can post another 10,000 alone!! There is no rule in the game to suppress freedom of expression/speech.

This is what should happen:

1) Bring back peaceful status, or some other way weaker factions can survive in TC without getting bullied. No crap updates that benefit small factions so little that there really is no point in having them.

2) Everybody affected negatively by this removal will:

βΆ Stop voting for the game
βΆ Stop buying any more Donator Packs
βΆ Continue to protest in this and other threads, which would be read by noobs who might leave the game
βΆ Make it impossible for factions to war their faction by kicking out all their members, and spending some time on holiday in Mexico.
βΆ Delete the faction, and let the wars die... This would result in what you have always feared Ched, NO wars, if there are no new factions to declare on.

Either way you're gonna have to come up with a good enough explaination! Remember think carefully!!! Months later you're gonna learn the hard way how big and costly (Ultimately for you) the mistake of removing the peaceful status was!

5 more days until I stop being a "Donator" (should be "Donor", as it doesn't sound bass-ackwards).

I refuse to support a game where its Admins listen to the voices of a small minority over that of the deafening majority. If this was a Democracy, people could be voted out. If this was a Dictatorship, there could be a coup. Instead, this is something far worse than any Dictatorship or Monarchy. The only power we have is economic in nature. I am not purchasing a DP until I have a voice again.

The issue we were faced with... what would happen in 6 months? All factions but one would inevitably end up peaceful, destroying the whole point of factions.


As i've said in my previous post, if there are no factions to war, then it will destroy the whole point of factions. Thats the root where we must strike to knock some sense into Chedburn. There will be far less wars one way or the other! It is inevitable!! I can see it now Ched.... Everything that has a beginning has an end!! If you want to watch factions war, then you're gonna have to let us decide that, not force us into wars, cos it won't work. I'll just just destroy my own faction!! Do you remember watching that in another computer based world Ched!? Well it's gonna happen here too!

It is supposed to be a dangerous world; the decisions you make are supposed to affect you, positively or negatively to create meaningful play. The change was by no means influenced by any other factions or people.


How many times have i said that staff should not try to be baby sitters!! If i don't want war, then that is MY DECISION!! So let me make it "to create meaningful play"... "Positively or Negatively". Ched just sit at home make more cash by letting us do what we want.... It's the only way we're gonna be happy. If we're happy, you will notice you're making more cash and thats all that matters right!!!?

Accept that you're wrong, and return peaceful status!

i have to agree wid sumfink wid these updates. Ever since the updates its boring, my memebers have left my faction, no more communication, no more fun, but when chains were a must, lots of communication, lots of ideas, fun... interesting..

so i have to agree, even my faction i destoryed .... it will still be fun again... so ...


Hey perhaps you should join DA DA -Astral- if you like to war and chain so much!! Or maybe you can click the declare button... No one is forcing you to stay peaceful are they? So why are you complaining about the peaceful status for your lack of vision or balls!?

What!? Not enough noob factions out there to war!? I thought you said you enjoyed warring, even if your faction was destroyed!?

i am a donator for 1907 more days. i used the points to earn cash for my faction and for my friends to get weapons and upgrades. i am over 800days old and like most i dropped the faction i did own just to buy a peaceful one. had i know less than 3 months later i would be losing it to all the higher factions once again i would have never purchased another. seems to me i got scammed big time. and i to have noticed the new forum topics trying to push this off the main page. I will not ever purchase anymore DPs nor will any of my friends.

Still trying to push this off the front page of announcements so that maybe we will forget. Well, I for one have not forgotten. I am not buying anymore DPs, I tell my friends not to, and I may be leaving the game all together after the 90 days is up. We have been screwed once again by the staff of TC. and I have had it.

I play other games where the staff have the interests of ALL the players in mind, and in most of them the staff are not serious players. They are playing only to test new features and bugs. You cannot tell me that is what the staff here does. I won't buy it.

Over the last hour or so we sucessfully moved the server that handles your user/faction imags, as well as some session files, to a different machine.

This upgrade went well, although for a short period of time you may have seen the "downtime" screen, and the site will have been laggy for approximately 30 minutes. Everything has now returned to normal.

Just a long excuse for the lag and a new system being brought in. Next update?

By Chedburn [1]
Over the past few hours there was a little lag and some downtime. This was all due to us installing a massive new backup system which should abolish nightly backup downtime (won't be in effect for a few days yet). We will let you know when it is in effect. There 'may' still be very short period of downtime at midnight for the usual crons to run but other than that, TC will be open 24/7.

This new backup system does not require nightly downtime to run and can run more often, keeping your data backed up even more frequently. The backups are even stored off site for extra safety.

Lag time explanation again and a new system being brought in. Sounds familiar? 2 things that could have been put into 1 update announcement but instead just bump this thread further down.

If you don't care/want to discuss the issue then don't waste our time and lock or delete this thread and the other one on it as well. Unfortunately we all already know where you stand and how little this issue actually matters to you.

Too right, there are many games out there that admin can be trusted and some where admin don't seriously play the game - they are just there to make the game a fun place to be.

Funny how there are two different announcements with two entirely different explanations about the downtime and lag. Maybe you guys should get your stories straight. You knew this stuff was coming, when are you going to have a bit of respect for us and tell us BEFORE things happen? I guess it is easier to lie and cover things up after ther fact.

Take a look at the voting list. TC is no longer #1. Last month TC won with more than twice the votes, but now it's gonna be struggling to be in second place.
This is what you get ched for proving so vividly that the players of this game means nothing to you!
I am proud to say that I vote every day now.... for other games!

Well Ched have you heard anything yet that the people of TC have said to you? We want the options you gave us for our factions. You want us to work for 91 days to become food for the HOF once again.

Why not just RESET the game and everyone start out fresh then.

Jen if he resets the game, we'll have the same problems 3 yrs later.... The older players will have unfair advantages they don't deserve, just for playing longer.

3 yrs later, the noobs will still be complaining because it's not the players fault, it's Cheds fault!... He took away peaceful status unfairly, without any good enough replacements! So what you gonna say? Reset it again!? It would be such a waste of time for all the people who have worked hard to build stats, nerves, and cash!

Over these three months, more things will change. For example, OC respect gain may be upped including the adding of additional OCs and an easier system to plan and initiate them. Small disadvantages may be added to higher factions attacking lower factions. At this current moment in time, if a level 40 attacked a level 10, the respect gain is decreased because of the level gap, we may raise the decrease further until we are perfectly happy with the system.



One month later.....

OC's
No change.

Small disadvantages to higher factions attacking lower factions.
No change.

Respect gain being decreased because of level gap.
No change.
