As someone who frequently critiques the game, I was happy to see some VERY significant and important issues addressed in patch 0.97, specifically that kings, vice kings and dukes cannot go on vacation mode as this was something that was abused for over 2 years now. On behalf of many members of DOOM and Gangstas, we would like to thank you for finally listening to our feedback and making the game a lot better for everyone. This patch was a great start to making the game a lot more fair. Most of us are quite satisfied with the current state of the game, especially since the upcoming launch of 5x servers, however do not let this be the end, please look into other issues like better multi & bot detection as well as balancing menhiri again as kingdoms of 70+ people have started teleporting (current com1x3).
All the best,
-Danko & the boys
