I'm beginning to think the problems associated with the game are more than it costs to fix it. Since the game hasn't continued for a couple of weeks, it might be best to end this game and just start another.
Other things to consider are the number of players who have dropped because of their starting positions, or the fact that the game has already degenerated into a two sided battle.
If the game ends, then the winner is the Orions/Privateers.
All thanks to Havok, regardless of the outcome, for all his hard work in trying to get the game to start up again. I want to end the game simply because I don't want to cause any more trouble than it's worth for him.
