I should be able to squeeze this one in to my schedule
If you both enjoy the format of play (which I think you will as it adds a big level of diplomacy and team strategy----at least it did for the two of us), we can always switch teams around among the 4 of us in a rematch.
Who said anything about a rematch…? When me and EJ kick yer butts we’ll be looking for the next victims
I like your spirit @Karmadrome … especially since we are just starting our 1v1 match … I got the HULK SMASH coming your way in that one!
Yea, RL is a bit busy right now, but I think we could start it after Labor Day.
Can you review the parameters in the first post and see if those are to your liking?
I would suggest $1,000 starting cash … and would you prefer 6 or 8 tick jumps?
I’d be up for this if there’s any more 2v2 or 3v3 games on the horizon? UK timezone and need a partner!
@HULK After Labor Day is good for me. The parameters look fine, other than starting cash. $1000 should be sufficient with economy and industry 20 to start. I’d prefer 6 tick jumps if that’s good for @Karmadrome and @SuperDave.
I’m happy with all that.
All agreed then on the parameters. As such, the battle shall begin after Labor Day!
Here’s two possibilities for you guys - please check the parameters and note that I have signed up as Green (of course!) so @SuperDave should pick a player NEXT to me - doesn’t matter which one.
Most of the generated maps have big holes in the middle … so what you are seeing there is about as good as I could get after a dozen iterations. I think map #2 is the better one as the outlying stars are within reasonable Hyper range.
If we can agree on a map, we can go ahead and start and if my (or other people’s schedule) get backed up, I can pause the game.
Remember this is SIX ticks/jump … that totally messes with your brain as I’m finding out in my 1v1 versus @Karmadrome … where I’ve made numerous mistakes with my timing.
BTW, it’s too bad there isn’t an option to add a “ghost player” - i.e. a 5 spot that would be centered on the map that would result in populating the middle with stars and encourage battling to the center for the juicy home star!
I’ve joined, but it’ll be a while until i can submit allowing time for sleep, chatting with EJ and sorting out the turn…
@Karmadrome. It’ll be the same with us. Hulk and I will need time to make devious plans ourselves.
Remember----you have to do a formal alliance initially with your partner to start.
Go ahead and sign up which will start it, do the formal alliance with @Karmadrome (@SuperDave and I already did) and take your time plotting your moves as I can pause the game as needed and won’t start it until all players are ready.
Sounds good, I’m in!
I liked the 2v2 game, but I feel a 3vs3 game has a lot more interacting. The 2vs2 was literally two 1vs1’s with I think a total of 3 fights between me and @SuperDave if that. I think a 3vs3 alternating staring positions makes for the best kind of teamwork and fighting. I like that all the players can interact. Anyway msg me up if/when you guys want to do a 3vs3.
I would definitely be up for a 3v3, but I need to finish up on the 1v1 and 2v2 first.
In my experience, in a 3v3 I could afford to take extended naps while my teammates did the heavy lifting. There is no place to hide in a 2v2
U obviously haven’t played 3vs3 with alternateing team starting positions… @wfmcgillicuddy
