This rule MUST go, it has taken all the excitment out of the game, and taken all fun out of the game. There has to be something done, right away. Alot of good players will leave, ok, well, atleast a few decent players anyway

yeah it sucks. It takes to long to do anything and by the time you can attack the deffender can hit you. just trying to go between screens is long. it just make running really long. and to tell you the truth i dont have the time. The rule is going to lose players.

I agree - there must be better ways to take some load off the server.

People playing the game properly might need to go through a few pages quickly - then stop and make a descision. I don't see why this rule is neccessary.

It should be possible to track down who is loading the server on purpose and target them - this rule made even reading my single message take 4 attempts and at the end of a round or when someone is about to pounce - it would be a nightmare.

As Shadow Knight says - it has taken the fun out of the game. It made me find something else to do last night because I was so frustrated. I'm sure other people will do the same and it will lose and dishearten many more players than a simple server lag would.

I can forgive server lag but an obtrusive rule is just going to annoy and dissapoint people.

we are having 3 problams that affect the enjoyment of the game now, and the overall retention of players. 1) the 3 second rule, 2) server overloaded, 3) mineral feeding. it seems to me the more that this goes on, the more people we will lose due to frustration. please help us out here, peter! i love playing sc and dont want to see all my friends quit!

another new rule that stops the excitement of Sc and for us..

Since the knowledge of HWsetups, attackingtactics or fleetsetups have changed and raised a lot.. the biggest fun or competition was the improvement of the skills(the SPEED to take sumone online..

with the new rule it is taking way too long to take sum1 down while he or she is on or even offline..

all the fun we had making pple nervous cause good players r able to take sum1 down in less than 30 seconds is gone..
all the fun we had waiting hours below sum1`s range to kill him online or let him refresh every seconds is gone..

the speed made the game fun for notorious not the strategy or tactics.. this rule is really killing the most fun of the game!!

a bored exi

The 3 sec rule is still active in SCT :-(

I'm sure this is just an oversight but please could it be changed?

the only problem with the 1 second rule is if someone hits u just as u click on something, the hit counts as you doing something... gets annoying in fast n furious battles
