Considerations of Endings

I wanted to solicit some information from my fellow players, namely do you want the dynasty to end at this point?
We are down to 4 pilots, one of whom has no experience, meaning that they haven’t been doing much on the mech front.
So please let me know if you do or do not want a new dynasty at this time and what your thoughts are on the subject.

There was one point a little while back that I was almost going to propose that when this dynasty was finished, they it would have a metadynasty after it

While I like the ruleset we’ve got quite a bit, I think it needs another week or two of tinkering to turn into something very compelling, and the attrition of players is a big issue. Darknight going idle would put the game into hiatus, but even so, it’s a game between you and Bucky at the moment. I’d honestly rather reset, get the usual influx of players for a new dynasty, and maybe revisit some of these mechanics at a later point when the game is a bit more robust.

On the theory that new players are discouraged from joining mid-dynasty, I specifically designed the victory condition such that new players could earn a small chance of victory from even a few days’ contribution.

The design seems to have failed in that respect.

We have three active players rather than two, as Raven has been shooting and, given their preferred mech config, would likely be more active in the more target-rich high tempo endgame.

Sorry about that. Things got busy enough for me that I lost track of the rules but didn’t want to idle and lose track of when a new dynasty starts =/
