our next try should be that you will send invites.
it sometimes helped for TtR openings.
now i can see 3 games in progress, each with 3 players ready.
only geigerm missing in each game.
1) , @geigerm, have you reassured that whovian, irishdomer and me are all on your friendslist inside your DoW website account?
not only on SmW's buddy list, but on the DoW account's friendslist.
2) it's time for you to create a game and send the invites.
if both ideas fail, then we must decide if we want to play a 3P or will try to find a substitute, sad as it would be
