Turnbased tournament


#1

Ok, so how many of you are intrested in playing a turn-based tournament? I’m thinking roughly the same set-up as Smulm Cup Tournament.


#2

I’d be up for this … although not super gung-ho about circular layout … but not sure what would be better.

Ideally would attract motivated players so we don’t have to WAAIIITTTT forever … turn-based games can go quicker than real-time … but only takes one to slow it down.


#3

Yeah, circular is a bit rigid but maybe offers the most equal start?

Maybe a twin ring?

Mayby something similiar to Hardcore simulation game? Love the setup with one starting star, dark galaxy and trade scanned.


#4

And dedicated players is of course preferable. I think 24hr deadline is the best though.


#5

Would love to join a tb tournament once my other game ends. Not a fan of circular unless the center is filled either, and definitely not circular double hex.

12 hour jumps, 24 wait sounds fair to me. 8 is just painstakingly slow with 24 hours waits, especially if it’s a lot of players.


#6

Great!

Here is my suggestion: 16 players in first round. The top 8 continues to second round. And the final is a showdown between the 4 top players from the second round.

Random Hex, random scatter
12 hour jumps, 24 deadline
Trade scanned enabled
Dark galaxy
Otherwise default NP.

Sounds good?


#7

Count me in for this, game setup proposal looks good to me.


#8

Can people without premium join this kind of game?


#9

Yeah sure! I’ll make it a public game for everyone to join.


#10

…but would be better if you went premium and supported Jay (if you enjoy the game).


#11

Yeah of course. :slight_smile:


#12

And we’re up!

Sweet, thanks @Axson .

I would buy premium, I just can’t really afford it at the moment…


#14

Especially since Green Square was available, the HULK is in.
Nice simple params - like that Trade Scan is enabled since otherwise, edge players trade across the galaxy.

Also posted on the in-game chat thread of the real-time tourney game … figure some players there might want to join to SMASH the Hulk! :wink:


#15

Good to have you on Hulk!


#16

sign me up


#17

One more spot to fill!

#18

And the game has begun!

We got a bunch of serious players, so hoping people won’t dilly-dally and submit their moves … turn-based games can actually go faster than real-time. BTW, 12-hour jumps is a LOT … would recommend 8 or even 6 for the next rounds. I do realize it’s a trade-off with keeping the game moving.


#19

Let’s see how 12 hour jumps works out this time. 6 is way to slow in my opinion.

Hey sorry I didn’t join @axson but it looks like I’m in for another break from np2. Hope you guys have fun though!
