In order to save BM’s current home, venerable old Halmoni, who was buckling under the load, two awful new rules are in place:
One, no new players for a while.
Two, random production times will overrule the vote cast by the senate.
This means production will happen once each six hours, at a random time, reducing the spikes at predictable production times, though unfortunately not abolishing them due to extra-game communication.
A new home for halmoni may be in the making, but we must all be terribly patient, for ’tis but I, Rasteroid.
