due to a few recent requests I’m opening this new thread for 1v1 friendly games.
For the uninitiated: 1v1s are a fun challenge for new NP2 players and veterans alike. You will face off on an EPIC mirrored map with no experimentation so you have the exact same starting position as your opponent. No diplomacy - instead it’s 100% strategy and game theory. It’s turn-based with only two players, so games can move along quickly - but if you need some more time sometimes, there’s also a very generous turn deadline (48 hours).
This thread should largely work in a self-organizing way: Players with 1v1 creation rights will post map links based on demand and their free time available. You can use this thread to find other players interested in playing 1v1 friendlies and join one of the maps. If nobody is currently waiting, best practice is to find an open map link in the thread, join it and post it in the comments inviting others to join in.
A few ground rules:
- Please don’t join more than one map at a time to leave room for others.
- The results of these games will not impact your 1v1 ranking/rating.
- If there is a drought of maps, be patient - it may take an unspecified amount of time for new ones to be added.
