    Utopia extreme

    Think of it; we get the hour change at every minute, rather than every hour (i gues it would be called minute change in that case)

    Wouldnt it be a chaotically fast paced game, and totally ruin hardcore utopia fans real lives :D

    I want to hear your opinions on such a version, since such a discussion will undoubtedly be hilarious...

    72 minutes protection would be an interesting idea for sure. 48 minutes wars would be fun too I guess.

    I'd not try it on main server tho, but could try it on genesis-like server. Too pity server would be crushed rly fast ;)

    This would never work, since it would be 1 minute of game play, then 5 minutes of TICK, then takes 2 minutes to attack...

    Technically, the game would tick perpetually.

    Since tick takes 3-4 minutes, 3-4 extra minutes of ticking would pile up every minute and the game would get hopelessly behind with the ticks.

    You'd get messages like: "Game is now processing tick from 100 ticks ago". And later on, you'd get messages like: "Game is now processing tick from 150 ticks ago" and it would get worse and worse.

    You would be able to get your 2 hour nap since you couldn't do anything even if you were logged in.

    I liked when the game ticked every 10 secondsish due to something with dragons. You could eat an explore pool in 5 mins :D

    Then get razed by the bigger guy in the kd when he realised you'd eaten all his explore pool :(

    So was the 15 min ticking beta. Sleep was something strange, 8hours of sleep made you inactive for 32 utopian-day's.
    But then again, you could hunt people about to get out of bed and plunder them :D

    I second this motion!

    All those top dog KD wannabe's better watch out,

    Course, I would also LOVE to see 25 attacks in "one" tick XD
    (And did I also mention having stealth and mana pool completely empty? Cause I expect that as well)
    Scripted Provs, here I come!
    Just say "yes" and I'll go away.

    As it is the game's not attracting enough new players and I believe the (rather) steep learning curve has something to do with it. This change would just make it worse lol.
