How often would you like to play? Currently the only servers are daily this is because the game is in beta and I need lots of data to work out any bugs or settings. I have noticed even for myself that daily servers burn players out quickly especially if you have lots of wrestlers. I plan on have multiple servers running when the game is complete so you can play at different times and will have more schedules to choose from. There will be daily, bi-weekly, weekly and bi-monthly server cycles.

Which one would you prefer? or would like to see a different one like every 3 days or so.

To date I think there has been around 250 users that have joined MOTM and have probably long gone because they probably got burned out. When the game is complete I will reset the servers, don't worry I will not erase anyone I will just reset the stats and etc. I know some of you have gotten attached but it has to be done to be fair. At this point I will send an email to everyone the game is complete and re-invite everyone to come back and play. Hopefully this will help build a community.

Thank you for your interest in MOTM.

I would like to see one cycle a week. But I would like to see matches everyday. For example, you pick your holds on Sunday for the entire week....then you have the game schedule cards Monday through Friday. This way we could all watch and see how our guys are doing. I would add that it may be good not to be able to see your point values until the end of the week so there is some suspense in the weekly matches. Like if you know you beat a guy by 300 and then you have a match with someone that beat that same guy by 20, you know you have a good chance of winning. Not knowing what the point values are would make it more interesting in the scenario.

Good suggestion I really like this idea of matches running everyday but technically finishing the full server cycle at the end of the week. Unfortunately I will have to do a lot of recoding to make it work something like a partial server lock that allows users to view results without being able to post any actions. I will definitely consider this if a lot of people think it will make the game much better.

But I do want to point out if the game was a weekly server you can see the promos and challenges as they come in you just don't see the results of course until the end of the cycle.

If I do this upgrade I will probably do it last because it isn't critical for game play dynamics.

As much as I like the idea, I think I am going to have to shut this one down because I just thought of how the locking would work. If a cycle were to take a week and the matches let say would play out through Mon to Fri and then a new cycle would start on the next Monday, the server would have to lock for the entire weekdays which means no one will be able to do anything except watch results. This means you will only be able to post your actions on Sat and Sun so if you can't find the time on the weekend your SOL, but if the cycle were to stay the way it is now then you would have a whole week to do your actions which will be much more convenient.

Let me know what you guys think.
