Should be a PC fix for only two servers. Quit Steam and log in again for infinite servers.

Mac fix soon, hopefully? Praise Tim he is brill.

Yea im holding off playing for the moment as Vets thrashing noobs would discourage play... well that and my now ex "cleaver dick" mate with his "legit" code for anytime upgrade on windows 7 now made it a "illegal copy"

So I have to reroll my whole OS back to Home Premium now...

Thank god for smartphones and such!

It just occurred to me, however, that this would be an excellent time to get the Winning Streak achievement...

Wait the tail achievement is fixed? Aww yisss...

I tried to go easy on the noobs, I really did. But as Ben said, many of them weren't touching the cubes. It seems lots of players feel they are above tutorials. So... Long story short, I made a lot of money without really trying 0_0.

So this is what sorry not sorry feels like.

yea when i played a bit 2 outta the 3 didn't touch cubes

maybe we could have it set up so when a user first plays the game it shows a prompt mentioning the tutorial and that its highly recommended and that it only takes a few minutes

Sure some would still skip it but others might actually click it

Done. Plus I finally got all the achievements today! Thank you, Free Weekend!

I'm planning to play noobs on the organised events now, with Masochist on, so I can give them an easy match while making it more interesting for me.

I would mention it to them in the chat box but "masochist" appears to be censored :S (Dan, do not edit my post to censor that word!)

So you're running a game where children can earn money and then spend it on sexy words?

I am having loads of fun again! After not playing for pretty much since release I jumped straight into a game again (boy are those lobbies full!) only to realize I forgot how to shoot, couldn't figure it out either, so I just decided to go all bomb-crazy and still managed to win.

Then I looked up how to shoot and now I am just trashing all the new players with my pro-skills :). It all came back naturally to me. I probably should go easy on them, but this is way more fun right now haha.

Sorry that it had to come to this, but making it free was a great decision from my perspective. Now hope a sustainable community will stay behind after the wake.
