    I don't remember if this question it has been made already if yes I'm sorry asking again.

    When changing from ERA 6 to Final ERA last round we had a bug about the active players calculation (fixed already by the look of it) so for all top 10 cities the calculation of active players for the 1st SET is made counting 24hours before EG starts or is it made 24hours before each City became Mega City?

    it's supposed to be 24h before Each city starts their EG as i understand it.

    This is what happens when a product with known problems is pushed out anyways, with the intention of "patching" (hahaha) as needed.
    here's the problem with Patching folks, and i'll use Drywall as my example...

    Some jerk punches a hole in my wall .. i have 3 choices ..
    A: slap a patch right over the hole, smear some paint, and hope for the best.

    Result? ... A Patch that fails and falls out very quickly.

    B: Take a few more seconds, clear out some of the broken bits, sand the edges, and take the time to create the best patch possible - Primer and paint.

    Result? .. a better patch, but still not a permanent repair.

    C: Fix it right the first time: Cut out the damaged section back to structural supports, add in structure as needed .. install a new section of drywall, properly secured to Structure, plaster the joints, sand .. tape the joints, sand .. finish plaster the edges 1 more time, sand smooth.

    Primer, paint.

    Result? .. A Permanent repair that will not need to be touched again, unless some idiot punches a hole in it again.

    and folks... option C is actually FASTER about 50% of the time.

    Think about that.

    Sadly, option A seems to be the method of choice for "Patching" RN servers from our (The Players) perspective.

    The server is back online, and we thank you for your patience and understanding while we worked on a fix.

    We are very sorry for the frustration this sudden downtime caused and for the way the loss of revenue affected your game this Sunday. The team will next discuss what would be a fitting gesture of an apology for players of Tower Bridge.

    not just sunday, saturday earnings were also far below what they should have been. looks like 36-48hours of severely hampered cash flow.

    a fitting gesture would be triple income on all goods and wait times locked under 30 seconds for a few days.

    and before anyone asks:

    YES i have reloaded (more times than i care to count)

    YES i have completely restarted my browser.

    YES i have tried different browsers

    YES i have cleared cache and re-booted several times

    YES i have completely re-installed my browser.

    ALL my other servers are working normally.

    ONLY COM203 Tower bridge is completely tanked.

    currently com203 Tower bridge is extremely laggy.

    Trains are also currently NOT earning cash for the routes they are on 90-95% of the time.

    i have watched my trains land in cities, landmarks, factories, warehouses and harbors with the same results over the last several hours, if not a day or more: nearly ZERO income.

    Hi, all.

    Please let me know the mechanism of facilities upgrading.

    Thank you.

    And this is why many say the so called Lucy Tasks "Guide" is complete garbage.

    Gege Gondri : on the right side of your screen, click the button that looks like a Building .. this is your "Train Station"

    In here you upgrade your facilities. simply click on a building and it'll show what you need to upgrade, and what the benefit will be.

    So if we're going to count these "active players" then let's be real about it,

    * Anything less than 100k PP before EG is an inactive player, by any serious definition.

    * Any player who is not filling 25/25 slots of engines, is an inactive player.

    * Any player Who does not have all buildings maxed out level wise is of course not an active player, etc.

    Only players who fulfill these criteria should "qualify" to the endgame, while all other accounts are stopped, so they don't bother those who actually play.

    Many active players enter End Game with less than 100k Prestige.

    Many active players also do not max out all buildings.

    Football is a family of team sports that involve, to varying degrees, kicking a ball to score a goal.

    Unqualified, the word football normally means the form of football that is the most popular where the word is used.

    Sports commonly called football include:

    association football (known as soccer in some countries);

    gridiron football (specifically American football or Canadian football);

    Australian rules football;

    rugby football (either rugby union or rugby league);

    and Gaelic football.

    These various forms of football share to varying extent common origins and are known as football codes.

    There are conflicting explanations of the origin of the word "football". It is widely assumed that the word "football" (or the phrase "foot ball") refers to the action of the foot kicking a ball. There is an alternative explanation, which is that football originally referred to a variety of games in medieval Europe, which were played on foot. There is no conclusive evidence for either explanation.

    (yes, i love Wikipedia ;-) )

    Consumption ..

    The stated goal of Platform X is to encourage the highest possible city levels.

    Consumption percentages therefore need to be completely reworked.

    You want max city growth .. but nail the server with 30% or higher consumption to choke growth down?

    i'll tell you now, that is a HUGE DRAIN on player moral and participation.
