clear your cache to get back in....ice done it more today than in the last 6 months but it works temporarily
they do ask our opinians, thats what this whole thread is about...this whole forum in factTruthfully, and I'm sure I'm not going to get much love for this, but with any update there are going to be bugs and it'll be glitchy at first. I for one, would rather see progress and see Inno trying than to see them let Grepolis idly get stale. Yes, there are things I would have done different if they'd asked my opinion, but they did not, nor do I expect them to.
No one likes change, but I think it's important to see the upside. The buttons are way cool (though I would have liked to see them run down the left side of the screen), the reservation tool is a long awaited, much needed feature that will make claims in alliances so much quicker and easier, and in the long run, this update is a stepping stone to more features.
I guess that's just my opinion, and it helps to be optimistic about things.
