    Hi all, this is my thread for requests & suggestions, feel free to participate.

    The nº 1 most important thing that I would like to see in this game is for the reconnection timer to be increased by something like 20 to 30 seconds. I live in a country where there isn't a stable internet connection outside of cities, and since I live near the farms it is normal for the internet to skip a beat and go down and up again once every hour or so (and every one of those times, I almost got it in time to reconnect).

    I think the learning curve is a bit screwed at the beginning, it is quite easy to reach level 7, but after that the characters gain experience much slower. Since there are only 20 levels I would suggest to start lowering the experience at level 4 or so. (Although, I'm having trouble in beating Beneath the Frozen Earth, so it might be just my impression.)

    Increase the reconnection timer by 30 seconds, and your good game becomes great for everyone.

    Ooh, a healthy reconnection timer might be very good. It just has to be set right for both sides: if you're in multiplayer, and your opponent unfortunately loses a connection, you only want to wait so long before being allowed to exit and try again. 20 to 30 seconds sounds okay to me.

    As to experience, I think it might just be your impression. I mean, of course, if you're stuck on a level then you don't get the XP for completing it: but once you get past that stumbling block then you're back to advancing at the same rate. With two adventures per level, each giving you 10 XP (assuming your character level equals the adventure level), you are guaranteed to get your needed 20 XP (for a character level) just in time to advance to the next batch of adventures.

    And then, since Blue Manchu seems to be adding a third adventure in some places, you really have as much XP as you need.

    Well, since someone with a good connection has 20 minutes to play, he could take (lets say) 3 minutes to make each move. I bet the opponent will be so bored, that he will give up that match just to do a faster one.

    What I'm saying is to increase the reconnection timer by 20 to 30 seconds more than it is now (I don't know how much time it allows now). I would say that 45 seconds to 1 minute of reconnection time should be enough, but results may vary.

    Ok then, I think I am level 8 trying to do a level 7 mission, so that explains it. It is just a lack of armor card removal that is my problem then.

    I think we might be talking past each other a little. However, I was assuming there was no timer, and disconnection was instant. I haven't suffered that problem so I don't know.
    Ah, if you had missed that detail, then let me summarize. If you are X levels above the adventure, then you get Y experience:
    X -> Y
    3 -> 0
    2 -> 2
    1 -> 4
    0 -> 10
    -1 -> 15
    -2 -> 20
    Even lower -> Still 20

    Sorry, I'm not a native english speaker, so if I say something weird, forgive me for I don't know what I'm saying.

    There is in fact a timer, but I think it is at tops 10 to 15 seconds.

    I didn't know that, thanks. I think that I'll then use my Human cleric instead of my Elf one.
