Is it the game, or are people quitting excessively?
Title pretty much sums it up. Are people disconnecting or are they quitting? Every game I've tried to play, by turn 30 - 40 everyone has dropped out. It usually comes in a burst with 3 or so quitting at the same time, and then slowly everyone else leaves, leaving me no choice but to leave as well.
Its been posted a lot from people.. its either a memory leak, or a glitch with the auto save, or both.
It appears to get stuck on "Please Wait" usually after turn 120 from what im seeing. It sometimes fixes itself but only if a player drops.
Part of what needs patched is the lack of info. There is no loading bar on some of the screens, so it makes you think the game froze. If you let it sit for a long time it eventually pops up though...
Also if it is autosaving, it should say "Autosaving.. Please Wait.." and if its possible put a load bar beneath that. This way people dont freak out.
Definitely something that needs looked into.
