  • Hourly updates at conquer is what you called hard-core? When I was working for my university, we'd mark the end of the semester by having a day-long (that's all it took to reach nuclear capability and win) game of Lightning Empire.

    30. Second. Updates.

    • Okay, you win :-)

      To my defense, the hourly conquer was played *during* the term-- you did your move, went away for a lecture/class/lunch, and came back an hour later to see the lizardmen swarming over your borders... some of the guys later moved on to Empire, I don't know what update frequency they had but I do know that they spent nights and weekends in the lab... by that time I think I was hooked by Nethack and Moria.

      In case MUDs are/were your opiate of choice: couple of the Empire-playing guys went later to found the BatMud. Trivia of the day: did you know that the original BatMud run on Sony NEWS workstations which ran a modified BSD 4.3?
