I drew a panel #2 FIVE days ago and the game is still going!
Ever had one of those?
THREE not FIVE
and for the record, it's a 12-panel'er
I'm finding games slow to complete at present. I'm assuming that lots of people are on hols, starting new courses etc. so not playing as much.
Last game I started took at least 3 days to enter the queue, so far as I could tell. I do seem to recall the first panel got a bounty, but it was one-star, not three-star if memory serves. So I'm guessing from this and other recent reports that the queue has gotten longer. And enthusiasm may also be waning.
As Moku points out, especially in the US, but also in Europe from what I know, this is a time when people are often doing things a bit more entertaining than sitting with a computer or other device.
I was wondering about the same :D I have a 12-panel game stuck in panel 3 (I drew panel 2 yesterday morning European time)... sigh Well, schools started here just this week, and next week in Germany, and so on. I suppose that might explain some things. Boo! :D
Incase anyone was wondering, this is the game that took too long:
It got snagged at panel #7 mostly. I think a lot of dustcatching happened.
It took around five days or so for this one to finish:
I drew panel 2 just like you leilei, and it took forever to finish. It got hung at panel 3 for a while, then again later in the game. Admittedly, I probably didn't help with my drawing. Three things that aren't Jackie Chan they may be, but that's a tough concept to pass on in a game like this.
As much as we (including myself) disliked Dustcatcher v1.0, games did seem to finish faster (albeit at the expense of some possibly great descriptions).
On Wednesday I drew panel 4 of a game it quickly went to panel 7, where it has remained. I checked again this morning and it had progressed to panel 9. Tonight it is still stuck on panel 9 (fortunately of 12)
When I took this on, I drew the prompt 4 times and skipped at the end of the 10 minutes because I didnt have time to adequately finish, I submitted my 5th attempt not quite satisfied but I think it is recognizable, it did go to 7 quickly.
The problem with this one, in my opinion was not the content but the amount required for the content.
finally finished a few minutes ago.
Turned out well i think
Summer vacation is almost over, I think alot of people are school clothes shopping, getting in last minute vacations and such. I also know some people have just quit drawing (including me) for now. I used to draw 10 or more panels a night. I am sure it will pick up again and panels will move faster in the next few weeks.
