day 85/3500... does this mean that after 3500 days the game will end?
do certain houses get declared the winner?
does everyone restart in a new universe?

This is the year. Now we have the year 2004 on this litte place called earth, in Kosmor, 1500 years have passed, so we have the year 3500. After 365 days, a new year begins...the year 3501... and so on.

Don't ask me why it is 3500, ask Maelstroem Smile

i think it should start and end semi-regularly
it can become interesting when it restarts, and everyone is on a level footing

i also play another space based MMORPG and that is won by someone every 2-3 months (or less this time around)

You cannot do much in 2-3 Months in a Game with 24h turns..
And Kosmor is designed for endless games or rather Maelstroem is trying to keep the game running endlessly, and i think, Kosmor is better then most games because of this. Most games you build up your planet etc and get attacked. Then, when you getting better/really good its restarting...

It not even gives you a fair chance, because player which played more rounds do no better how to start and have a great fleet before you can build a ship.

In Kosmor you can reach at least hypothetically the same strenght, and there are some examples for players who got better although they started later, i think Krondor and primarily Ayatollah (he started still later than Krondor) are the most famous examples from german Kosmor for this.

So, in my opinion Kosmor should not be reseted. Only if the game is totally stuck or runs ~5 years or so it could be a possibility.

true... the game i was referring to is real time (fleets take between 48+hrs at start of game or long distances to 2hrs tactical attacks at the end)
it is a strange set up of building yourself up also so maybe it shouldnt be

It's hard to say whether an endless game or a resetted one would be more 'fair' or 'equal' for the players involved. However, endless games are not as static or fixed in power distribution as one might think: players come and go, and big houses are vulnerable to domestic turmoil the bigger they get.

A second Kosmor component - at least in the German version - are the tournaments, played over a day or some hours with ticks every ten minutes or so - that's very cool and makes a lot of fun.

In general I would argue that a third Kosmor component right in the middle between the endless game and tournaments might also be very interesting, and then we would probably talk about a game running maybe exactly a year with maybe two ticks a day... Smile
