I have a game thats 166 days old, and I get about a turn every 45 days or soo, but its been more than 70 days now. I could claim a forefeit but it was the first MA game I started, and its been a real close one as well. Its game #4007 if that helps. It'd be awesome if you could take another turn on it. Thanks.

Let's see YOU handle 300+ games at one time without falling behind!

Hell, for lola, it's probably even worse...for a while, she was the only mentor, so I wouldn't be surprised if she had a thousand games to keep up with.

2 Guest - you speak noncence
and btw MENTOR Lola has 754 active games to care about so there is no wonder if some of them can be left behind.Try playing that much yorself before writing about "responsibility".
there isnt any disgrace - mentors are primarily for teaching glueless newbs and with Traj isnt there isnt any hurry.

Only mentor Artanis is playing quickest, so for him it obviously is not too many active games, you should try to find new mentors to make possible for newcommers to learn, it is responsible job.

You can't expect someone that just started playing to understand that the mentors have hundred's of games going. Honestly, the mentor system is broken, there just aren't enough of them around. I think the best thing for a noob to do is get in the chat and challenge some people and ask for help.

Yeah, because anybody should be able to keep up with 410 games!

The only reason I've kept up is because I've been on summer break and not had a job. The two weeks I DID have a job, I fell 70 turns behind.

Instead of many different mentor accounts maybe there should be only one mentor account. Where all the mentors play all the games...this would prevent any one mentor to fall way behind and becoming completely overwhelmed. This in theory should prevent any game to get way behind...all mentors would work on the oldest game.

Just an idea.

At the very least it would be nice to be able to cut down the number of games you get for a while...something like a week with half the number of new games or something so you can catch up.

yeah, my game is from before the mentor system anyway... its really not that important, I could easily wait another 60 days... as it stands it reminds me of exactly how long I've been playing this game, and watching a replay of it reminds me of the stupid moves that can be made, and helps me remember what to tell noobs not to do.
