    Since the last Pub Ive only found 2 idocs accross 2 diff shards and both were people who upgraded housing.

    Have people noticed this? Has anyone seen a keep or castle fall since the timer was put in?

    The way it looks to me is houses that are past 90 days are not decaying but I'd be interested to hear from others and maybe it can be looked into officially?

    There hasnt been a 90 day timer since 2006, they changed it to 30 day timers months ago. Chances are the reason your not seeing IDOC's is either because people are not leaving anymore (Or everyone who's leaving left). Strange it may sound, but last time IDOC's slowed was a few months before 9th age was released when people were joining up... and I am seeing alot more 'youngs' that I have for a while.

    The 30 day timer was supposed to be implemented, but never was... It is still a 90-day cycle.

    I've noticed this myself. The only ones I am finding now are folks that are relocating their house to new locations and the old houses are in their condemned status.

    Hmm Are you sure on that? I've seen mates houses decay after 30 days, tried to contact them but they werent online. I'm pretty sure its 30 days only, if the old stratics boards were up I could show a Dev talking about it.

    yup, 90 days no question.

    So anyone have an acct with a house on it that they let decay 90 days ago?

    It will take till about June 17th for me to test it out lol

    Maybe the devs stopped the 90 day timer for now why'll they work on a fix, because of all inactive accounts that none of the houses are decaying or just go osi that keep refreshing.

    I run four accounts, and three of them inactive up to 90 days at a time...and no idoc'ng before 90 days, friend.. Trust me, I'm pretty alert to that.
