Thanks for correcting me, I'll be sure to use the proper spelling alderbranch.
I'm not that fond of Tetris or other puzzle games. I like strategy games that require serious thinking (and the ability to build large empires and massive armies). I guess I just search for a "golden mean" in terms of complexity.
I can tell that "the fans" aren't the only ones frsutrated by the communications disconnect. I hope that when xhane is replaced, that it takes the load off you and the other moderators. For what it's worth, I think you and the others have been very helpful.
I also hope that the official explanation for the delay comes soon. I just want a good game. I feel sorry for Stardock and the mess that happened with Elemental: war of magic.
