I completely agree that it is the most frustrating thing waiting for a turn to drop with the postman, but we need to be fair to Paul.

With regards communication, he has given us an explanation as to why they are going to be late and they will be posted at the 'beginning of the week or later'. There's not much more he could have told us other than exactly when he posted them, which is a bit unneccesary really, as they will appear sooner rather than later anyway.

It also comes back to the same old argument, that Paul does do this in his own time, so it is completely unreasonable to expect him to drop everything just to get our turns posted. I know some people will say they pay for a service, so they expect better, but it is just the way the game is run, it is reliant on Paul's free time.
At the end of the day, if you aren't happy with it then don't play it, nobody is forcing you.


I agree it is frustrating, but we have to be accepting that the game isn't Pauls priority sometimes, which is completely understandable. The only reason it is so frustrating is because we all love the game so much.

The turn will arrive when it arrives, lets not piss Paul off by bombarding him with unnecessary phone calls demanding where our turns are.

My only concern is that there WON'T be a deadline extension now, as one evening with my turn seriously hampers my enjoyment for the game. I know it is frustrating waiting an extra week, but I'd personally rather that than try and turn it around in one night. Having it over a weekend makes a massive difference.

We will soon find out anyway, tomorrow hopefully!

I agree with what Tom has said esp only having 1 day with our turns which is extreamly frustrating

I can see the main way to counter this in the future is being able to email turns back to Paul which means we will all get longer with our turns even if things are delayed. Is there no way Paul would agree to this again?

its really great that the game is run at paul's leisure and he does everything when he wants....good for him. and i do agree with much of what tom says. personally i couldnt give two fiddlesticks when they arrive as long as im allowed to spend some quality time myself with it. thing is...why have deadlines for your customers if you cant get things done in a timely manner yourself? may aswell just say fuck it the season finishes when it finishes. by the time we finish the last two seasons three real life ones will finish sooner anyway!!

No turn today either for me. Going to be tough to even get it back for Paul's Monday deadline unless it definitely arrives tomorrow! Any news from anyone else?
