I would like to play!
Which setting change(s) would you like to try for this round of LLL?
- Weapons 4 (instead of 3)
- Fix Scanning at Level 1 (instead of normal research)
- 32 Stars per Player (instead of 64)
- Starting Distance Medium (instead of Far)
- 8 Tick Jumps (instead of 6 Ticks)
- Keep the standard settings from last round
(Also added @xjhdexter’s suggestion of a smaller HW distance from another thread.)
IMHO, if you slow down or reduce scanning tech, then this can filter out two types of players. Those who might turtle vs those who use Reconnaissance-in-force . Setting the galaxy to W4 could help to reduce turtling.
Yep, I’m here for the next round.

RE scanning- I found that I rushed to get scanning to be able to see across the gap between myself and Macomber, and just enough stars to see how many ships he could amass if I launched an invasion, and how many ships he could launch at me and therefore how many I would have to stay behind. However in that last game as I was behind him at the start, I needed intel to know that I would be able to take my stars. Like Belson, when I’m not messing around in a game, I rely on intel to make sure my attacks will be effective. And when I’m unsure about my opponents forces, I know I should be more reluctant to attack, but for some reason I play more aggressive when I don’t have scanning and don’t know what they will have. Depends depends
Ah, sorry mate, already had noted you down of course. Tagged the wrong B in a hurry, meant @BOsshOgg
@Trucriot Sorry. I’m shipping out at the end of August. So unfortunately, I will not be able to partake in a long tournament.

I am open to settings changes, but i do like the basic settings already… seems like the fewer variables we throw at the settings, the better in terms of fine tuning or isolating factors.
How about 1 random change for every game?
Oh and sign me up pls
Agreed, I’ll only change one setting this round based on the poll above and create an exit poll at the end to see how well it was received.
Good point, I think @Dysp brought this idea up a while ago, just to mix things up every round.
I’ll have to give it some thought, but maybe I’ll create a very basic “setting randomizer” that gives me 3 or 5 potentially crazy setting changes for next round (i.e., changing cost of infrastructure / techs, tech starting levels etc.) - then create a poll at the beginning of the LLL thread and the most popular one gets implemented just for one round
I‘ll skip this one but ping me for the next round!
Count me in please!
Random changes are an interesting idea. I know we are trying to “optimize” the settings for a clean, fast, 1v1 mano y mano challenge. But there are lots of settings that would be “fine”. It might be an interesting challenge to know that every month there is a new twist.
Sounds fun, count me in
Thanks to the 18 players who signed up so far!
Gunna give this one a miss sorry. Might join for the next one
Already in two games which won’t be ending any times so. I’ll have to skip out on this one,do tag me when the next one starts though.
Seemed you missed me… and others
The pings are just reminders to the previous participants who have not replied yet. Wouldn’t want to spam anyone unnecessarily, the next ping to players already signed up will be the match-ups
