I think that the EALand developers have seriously lost track of the basic objectives of the refurbishment of the game and also have lost track of what made this game so great to begin with. I am not faulting their efforts--which have been Herculean, however somewhere along the line, they got so caught up in making specific changes, that they lost sight of why many (if not most) of us played TSO. IMO, instead of trying to totally re-invent the economy and place such complicated systems and restrictions on the players (the vast majority of whom play by the rules), if they would simply enforce the current TOS and ROC instead of allowing every scammer right back into the game. Permanent bans, while not foolproof, will eventually discourage those individuals who engage in the activity (how many ISP's can they go through). Instead of allowing CC to be added to the game willy nilly (which has created obvious infrastructure problems), they could have allowed for a certain amount of limited types of items in. Time and again, the developers have insisted on pushing "updates" into the game, apparently with absolutely no idea what the impact will be--causing many to become unable to even log into the game. Instead of stopping to correct the problem, they press ahead--not really addressing the problems those who are messed up are having. If they issue a workaround, it comes out inconsistently in various locations and the wording/explanation is cryptic at best. Right now, I get the distinct impression that EALand is simply a toy for the developers and they are making changes simply because they can--thinly disguised as "improvements." The new games rules and methodology are not well thought out--they are instituting these changes as they think them up. Once again (as I have before), I implore Lee and the developers to please take a step back. Re-examine what it is that's really wrong with the game (not really all that much before, IMO)--and what really needs changing. Please stop moving forward with continuous "upgrades" and take the time to get the game working properly first. Make sure that people can download the game without incident; make sure they can log into the game without having to go through ridiculous contortions and silly fine tuning of shortcuts and other path related problems; please create a sub-program that deletes caches automatically as part of the login or out, so people don'thave to go searching through their hard drives to do it manually each time they play. First things first. PLEASE!
