Hulao battle:

There was an error in my moving people around, and the duel did not happen. There is, however, likely to be an ad-hoc that you should be warming up for.

We realize that this ending of the game is likely somewhat unexpected as there is no clear winner, which is a first for our site (What's V4? Never heard of it), but we feel it's in the best interests of the game to wrap things up as they are. SimRTK is a game of both strategy and roleplaying for enjoyment, and as the activity of players decreases, the enjoyment of the game decreases as well. The workload upon the remaining people also increases as people grow weary of the current game and depart, leaving fewer people to manage things. In short, we believe the game has reached the point where it is merely a chore for many people, with very few people actually wanting to see the game continue as it is.

If it were merely a matter of another turn or two to decide things, it would be different, but after having had three and a half game years to build up, neither Miao nor Chen's armies will be that easy to score a decisive victory against. Continuing with the current situation, we could look in after another year of gameplay and likely would still see the map largely unchanged, and we simply cannot continue like that. We do not have an explicit time limit on the game, but we feel that people should recognize that they cannot simply outwait everyone while activity on the site dies off. The game can continue only while there is sufficient interest in it. The majority of players have already voted with their feet and left the game- we opened the game with 380 PTs and activity had dwindled to less than 150 PTs posted last turn. Those who remain seem bored and ready for V5, which has already gone on for notably longer than any other version, to end.

And so, after watching and considering the situation for quite some time, we have decided that it is an appropriate time to conclude things. We will be opening PHs shortly and conferring with rulers to write an official ending story. And with the conclusion of this game, our attention can now be turned towards the development of V6, where which we hope to bring significant updates and innovations to the system to make the game more enjoyable all around. We hope to see you all back for it sometime in the New Year!

Everyone give a round of applause to Test subject 0987634, JohannXIV. Gentlemen, we have rebuilt him, better than he was before. Better, stronger, greener. He is... The Six Million Dollar GM.

Don't get too excited by this post being here!

For people who don't read the OOC thread, I'm just giving an update. The update is that things are still moving forward. We're working on new concepts for V6, and I'm rather excited by the potential they bring. But we're not quite ready to show them off yet. Some work still needs to be done to ensure the system will be workable and accessible. It's an ambitious system, but it's not ambitious in the manner of V4 where the loss of two staff members will doom the project. We want to make sure that everything works and is easily understandable so that we don't get a repeat of that. We wouldn't want the game to suffer if I had to vanish, after all!

Not that I plan on vanishing, sorry to burst everyone's bubble. I'm afraid, like a bad rash, you can't get rid of me that easily. ;)

Hellooooo Simland!!

This is your NEW Head Administrator pos . . . What?!?! He ISN'T vanishing?!?!? Well @%#$^&!! Sigh . . . . Back to the reason for this post.

*Xian Zhu Xuande will be doing a major forum upgrade, and the sim may be offline for a few hours while it takes place. This would be a good time to back up anything that you want to be sure to have, just in case.

To be more specific about the above update, the server upgrade will be occuring on Thursday, August 9th at a yet-undecided time. When you see the forum offline on that day, don't panic! It'll be back within a few hours. Unless catastrophe strikes. In which case I'll be hunkered down in the bomb shelter.

The forum upgrade has gone through without a hitch. I wouldn't have noticed anything had happened, were it not for the tiger icons vanishing for a moment!

We may now return to our regular schedule of waiting for the chance to tell you guys the cool things we're working for on V6. ;)
