Party vs. Party combat
Just a quick note on this, which has been introduced in the latest version. Right now, if you attack another online party, they can't do anything while the combat is ongoing. Yes, that's crap, but implementing this took a lot longer than I thought (needed to do a lot of refactoring - see my blog if you're interested in the details) and I didn't want to wait for ages to release it. Plus, as there aren't that many people playing, I didn't think it was such a big deal, as the chances of two parties being online, in the same place, and of the right level to go into combat are fairly slim.

So eventually, online combat will allow both players to submit their actions, and combat will run in real-time.

In the mean time, please just accept that it sucks :) If you have any problems with it (e.g. someone attacks you, and then never finishes that combat, so you get stuck) let me know.
