I realize these settings are anyone’s perfect settings. Let’s give it a try, have a good time, and we can let Jay know what we really need for future team games.
House Rules / Etiquette:
-Teams must strive for top 3 places. Formal Alliance will be turned on, but not forced.
-You may only trade tech with your own team.
-Teams may chat and share information with each other, but you are not allowed to switch teams, merge or join another.
-There is to be no tech trading with the AI faction or any other team. No gifting tech to another team because your neighbor looked at you funny.
-You can chat with everyone, and even target other teams together, but remember, only one team can win, and they must take all three spots unless they had a member eliminated, then they must take the top two.
-Please no AFKs or rage quitting, you only hurt your own team. When you AFK, and become an AI, you share all tech with the AIs. We will have to agree on sanctions if you gain ‘black market’ tech from an AI or another player. Maybe you will have to pay to transfer that gained tech to one player from every team that doesn’t already have it, and just cash to those that already do.
-Death bed team suicides into another team while vacating stars for a different team is unsportsmanlike. If your team collectively wants to bow out, All of your team should collectively Concede. AIs have gotten significantly more difficult to steamroll, and will do a respectable job in your absence.
-When a single team reaches 75% of the map, and controls the top leaderboard spots will all remaining members, we can collectively declare a winner, and concede rather than spending a week or two while they swap stars.
