Both would be nice... competition is cool, but usually rewards those who can afford crowns, or has enough time to be here 24/7. Either way not too big a deal. I was more just repeating the general consensus of the community, that it would be nice to have a world where money/budget is not a game changer. Those with skill/time win.
Worth a try. Power to the talkative!
Seriously, I knew it was a bad idea... anyone could start thousands of conversations with anyone. However, I think the underlying idea was a good one. The way to grow this game is through words/communication and friendships (haven't seen any advertisement, at least in my part of the world).
