Yes, when a tournament starts, a new tab opens up to keep track of the details of it, and it's automatically foregrounded.  It will be in the lower left part of the client screen.

That makes absolutely no sense to me. People like to celebrate and be nice, why stop them from giving me free monies?

There's a bunch of statues that say it's part of a secret promotion and that codes are available somewhere on the internet. Any hints on where on the internet? Google couldn't find anything.

I don't know how often code soldiers are getting refilled, but bear is right. There was another site too, but I think that promotion didn't go as well.

Any news on the pending ISP switch?

We're back to the US as of last night; credit cards can't be used until we move back to Costa Rica. Bitcoin deposits and withdrawals are fine as always though. The game appears to be free of disconnects and lag.

I checked it out today and things seemed to be running fairly smoothly. One disconnect, but my ISP has been flaky lately, so I'm willing to blame them. No real lag to speak of, so cool.

I hate to post publicly to trash a site where I've played for well over a year and that is one of the few truly unique BTC gambling sites, but the last several days of absentee administration have been ridiculous.

Bitcoind has been down over and over, generally only staying up a few minutes at a time.  However, the client still gladly clipboards people's BTC addresses so they can make a deposit, which will not show up until the daemon is restarted.  This has really impressed the few noobs who have tried to make deposits, seen them on the blockchain, and then not seen jack in-game.  "This happens every day" isn't a really impressive response either.  Considering this is a routine occurrence and you knew you'd be out of town (purportedly to promote the game), wouldn't having a plan for this make sense?  (And "wait for someone to call me on my cell phone every couple hours" isn't much of a plan.)

Then, the Feather Tree game comes up dying.  Wouldn't checking this before leaving for days on end have made sense?

And nevermind soldiers.  That's a whole other issue.  It doesn't affect me much, but noobs showing up are not going to be impressed with no soldiers, and then not being able to deposit or cash out.  First impressions are worth a lot and this kind of shit doesn't make good ones.

Seriously, some delegation of responsibility is in order for situations like this.

Thanks for a good game at most times, but the last few days have been an exercise in constant frustration.

Sucks. It was promising for a while, but yeah incompetent/absentee management will kill any project.

A problem in Bitcoin is most stuff is started by coders. If a project takes off a coder fails to hire management, and fails to understand why management is actually more important for continued success than any of his coding.

The site is still good, and one of its strengths is that the management, when there, is top notch.  Only in the past couple weeks has there been an absenteeism issue, because of the ICE conference.  The issue is the lack of delegation of authority when there is an issue.

When Di is around, the fact that bitcoind is more than a bit flaky (and bitcoind just is flaky across the board) is not an issue, because it's back up in a couple minutes.  Cashouts, unlike most BTC gambling sites, are basically instant and hit the blockchain within seconds of a cashout.  While the site has recently instituted 1 confirmation deposits, any site not run by idiots has done that too.  Though I suppose it is reasonable to have 0 confirm deposits if someone only gambles against the house and cashouts are handled manually, doing it when people play against each other creates an accounting nightmare if even an accidental double-spend happens.

So the problem isn't that the site is bad in general, but that there is no delegation.  There needs to be.  When the main guy is out of town, calling a guy who calls a guy who calls another guy is not a solution.

Does anyone else think some of the level tasks are a bit unreasonable now compared to not so long ago when btc was worth half of what it was or even a quarter or a fifth of what it was?

I know the level tasks are meant to be challenging and no one is forced to even level, but really, how many people are going to be throwing money at this game trying to level and get access to more islands and more games if/when btc continues to climb up, up and away into the 40’s, 50’s, 100’s, and so on?

The attrition rate for new players seems high enough as it is even without btc rising. Is there any kind of plan for adjusting the level task requirements according to the rise in the price of bitcoin? And by the same token, I’m sure you’d want to adjust the difficulty of the tasks if there was a significant and prolonged lowered price of btc as well.

I understand the game is still in alpha and that there has been a lot of tweaks, and fixes and improvements still ongoing with the tasks and games as well as other things, but I was just curious if any of this was being considered as opposed to just having the level tasks - once they are set - static regardless of major/significant/prolonged btc price fluctuations up or down.
