I couldn't find an introductions thread for new players, so I thought I'd make one. Comment here with some (non-private) info about yourself, how you found Eco, what you want to get from playing it, and anything else that feels relevant I guess! Maybe your favourite servers and a bit about them.
I'll go first I'm a player from Australia, have been following the development of Eco for a year or so and was very excited to finally buy a copy now that 0.9 is out. I love the whole concept of the game, I think it could be a great tool to learn about how complex systems like economies and governments emerge from basic societies, and to experiment with different forms of each to see the results. I hope to play some interesting games, and maybe do some write-ups on how they went.
I've started playing on the AGCS servers, which have 3 to choose from: Casual, Standard and High-RP. The servers are hosted in Australia, but anyone is free to join so come say hi.
