I agree with Allograft's view on the incosistencies. It would be too boring if everything was served to us on a silver plater!
But yeah, some things can be annoying to deal with.

HiG and the rules…. Rules and HiG…. My advice is to play only with few expansions at the same time not a mega carcassonne…

This is not about serving on silver plate. I have to tell that Meepledrone made great and huge work on discovering rules. Compare multiple editions, word by word, German - English and so on.
WiCa stands on CAR and on years of discovering rules and long discussions here.

Problem is way how looks HiG to our rules questions.
It is not about simple tasks. It is about really unsolved cases and/or about cases where rules on different editions says something else.

I'm very happy for WiCa existing. Those Carcassonne universe is much simpler whit it.

It's almost like Carcassonne93 doesn't want to discuss potential solutions with other like-minded fans who have been similarly affected and is only interested in complaining about the situation...

Umhhh...

I forgot to mention that the indefinition I described in an earlier post (see http://www.carcassonnecentral.com/community/index.php?topic=5344.msg78202#msg78202) also has ripples in what scorings should be taken into consideration when sending a meeple to Carcassonne... As per the rules, you may not get any points in 3. Scoring a feature but now they are assuming all scorings after placing a tile including the abbots, fruit actions, acrobat pyramids and shepherds' flock happen in that phase too instead of in 2. Placing a meeple. In this case, abbots and acrobat pyramids may be actions strictly unrelated to the tile just placed, that is, the tile that should be triggering the scorings in 3. Scoring a feature...  :o

So any scoring happening in 1. Placing a tile such as fairy points, WoF actions, peasant revolts are performed right away, but anything happening in 2. Placing a meeple has to be delayed despite the turn summaries telling otherwise?  ???

So these contradictions should also be clarified.

If you play on asmodee digital with P&D and abbot you can see the order of play. I have all stuff of carcassonne on asmodee digital. If someone has an account I can create a game and invite him to play P&D with abbot. Someone interested can send me a PM and after we can share here the order of play etc…
