From: Madrid, Spain
I think Marshall should not listen to all propositions written down on that forum and just follow his own idea of the game instead of all the interpretations of the peoples here. This will surelly make the game better and comin out faster. It's sure we can place a critic on what we see, but its important to not take too much time on developping the game. I think only critics to improve the game should be taken (such like a future scenario editor).
As Im goin impatient to play at, I think it's the best idea to have a better et sooner game.
or perhaps my subject should be... what Marshall should do...
I think that you think that some people (me, for instance), are advising to Marshall for change, in the last moment, some features of the game.
This idea is far from the reality
First, I'm talking about the original game, some features that i'd like change (home rules). This is not a suggestion to change the actual work of Marshall. Only a desideratum, or a brainstorming, as you like.
Second, I don't think that it can be a good idea to change a projec almost in the finish line. It would be a fool's idea, after some years of waiting.
Third, I ever support Marshall's work (even in the hardest momments, when some people was criticized Marshall's project, hard critics that Marshall, today, with elegancy, "forget" to join everybody around this project), my suggestion and constructive critics was made in 2003-2004, not in 2006.
For me, now is the time of enjoy with the game. After played, if it's necessary, I'll make again new constructive suggestions. And I hope that this projet would be as good as it seems.
And of course, fight against you in the battleground or in the lounges of the Palaces or Embassys, diplomacy fighting
