I agree in all points to Maniac.
And add a small note
I remember last era m4. I got attacked from a multi (he got banned later) almost every night. I reported it to Andrew and got that reply:
Battledawn is a GLOBAL game, don't forget that. If you sleep does not mean that every player is sleeping ... ( well his english was better, but he say it like this)
Andrew, do you forgot that BD is a global game???
If its to late for you to start the new era should not mean that its to late for every player !
Your "early" morning is my late afternoon. And i see really no point in waiting 24 hours now to see some undefinied "news" why it wasn't possibble to start the new era.
Btw Maniac, we got the tokens for the win at tick 180 in the new era.
