I don't believe donators should have a 3 second rule. Where's our priority access?

I also believe that donaters should have priority access. However, most noobs are all ready frustrated when learning SC, the 3 second rule will surely turn them away.:-)

I know Peter will find a way to fix the problem. :-)

If it is because, as stated elswhere in the forum, of the message system being spamed, make it so you can only send 1 message every 3-5 seconds. Aslo, maybe put the hight traffic games like VOW on its own server. but slowing gameplay down aint the answer.

As much as I like the idea of donaters having priority access, they already get a lot of advantages (extra ap, mins, power in SC ... extra ap and no min cap in other games).

While I am not sure that all noobs will have the fixation and desire to refresh every half second to see if they've been attacked or to attack someone else, I would like them to have the ability to do it if they want.

Regardless, I really don't like the 3 second rule at all.

yes, donators already get a lot of advantages. Among them listed, priority access :) If for spam reasons, that's great! But make it so you can't post a chat message within 3 seconds, not every time you click on the screen.

Ok, my two cents. I pay to play how i want to play... as in if i want to refresh every second i should be able to.. I payed to play when this was possible i didnt pay to have a 3 second cap. If it was like this before i payed i never would have. I got my run hosed as well on sc.. and vow is silly to try to play with this as well.If the server is getting so laggy... why not use some of our donation money to UPGRADE IT ! MY two cents.
