There's another clue. When you create a game, some of the templates state '2 to 40 players suggested', used to be 2 to 24 of course.
So obviously, Fizzer has made preparations for a future update. Maybe larger games will unlock at a high level noone has reached yet, but probably the option hasn't been released yet and will be added to the site along with the new colours. I'm guessing it will still be at a pretty high level though.
Veelvraat I like your look on it. I believe that creating larger games at the moment can be unlocked at a level. But maybe these new higher numbers may be membership only? Add some more meat to the membership bone that some people are saying is to thin.
The game was deleted due to a bug. But Fizzer fixed it and 3 hours later the game took place. I recorded the whole thing and have finished editing out the boring bits. It will be live within a couple of days.
