Test Game 1 has started - Preparing for Test Game 2

The first test game has been running for a while. But not many players know about it.
I would like the second test game to be advertised here on the forum 24 hours before it starts.
It would be best if that test game used the actual teams.

I think the team captains should contact their team and encourage participation.
It will help to find out the number of idlers in this game before the real game starts.

(Although I can't make myself to do any serious stuff in the test game... but that's just me...)

Re: Test Game 1 has started - Preparing for Test Game 2

I'll edit the actual teams to the next test game. However I'll still include myself to one of them so that I can test myself.

I checked the players who had played the test and from those who were idle most players seem to have a good reputation of showing up to the actual game. Not all players want to connect to the test and this has been an issue in the past. Would be cool if all would connect but not absolutely necessary.

Anyway, I don't see that many potential idlers.

Kevin, maybe next time you shouldn't build and launch a spaceship that ends the test game. LOL

Since you ended the game Alfred, Wahazar, BeckettTheGreat, kamBLR, pieronjeden, petromax, Temmikael, xandr, Dim, Lord_P, sigur and myself have all connected but can't test anything.

Great. You are welcome to join team 1.
I've always enjoyed playing with those pesky East Germans.

Everything is the same just 2 minute turns and no unit wait time.

Don't kill other players so they can login to test.

Don't launch your spaceship either, lol.

I am new here. Tried to connect, but the server rejects my password. I changed it a few days ago on forum as i had forgotten the original one. But doesn't work with the changed password.

Forum and portal/web site are separated. You need to change your password on longturn.org.

Re: Test Game 1 has started - Preparing for Test Game 2

Ok, ghamath, Shall I change the password for you and send it to the mail you have on your account?

I can't see the passwords but I can change them and send the new one with email.
