Phew. So yeah, GM is free all weekend. Hopefully a/ the servers hold and b/ there's lots of new players to play against.

Let me know if you spot anything awry going on?

The game should automatically add new ones as the old ones fill up. Obviously that hasn't reeeeally been tested ;)

Let's find out!

I tell a lie. Glitch in the system hadn't updated the sales graph properly.

We have lots of new players :)

I'm gonna hop into a US server as soon as I get out of work.

Hopefully I can convince my friends to play the game this weekend.

I had to step back and let the noobs get a few game under their belts - most of them obviously haven't bothered with the tutorial, they're not even picking up cubes. Will get in there on Sunday!

Well, that was the problem! I don't want to go in there and frustrate a load of newcomers by thrashing them; normally I'm happy to give a noob an easy game, maybe even let them win a few dollars, but I can't be arsed to do that continually, especially if they're not even aware they need to pick up cubes. Like I say, by Sunday when the servers are full of people who have got into double figures of played matches and bought a few perks, it'll be a lot more fun for the veterans!
