Non-league Ironman Friday night
« on: February 03, 2010, 09:58:53 AM »
Hello civers,

I am thinking of hosting every Friday night for the next weeks an Ironman. Since I want to play in it as well, it won't be a league game  ;)

Settings: It will be played under MOD, map type: Grid (size depending on the number of players); random civs and leaders, one quit aliby (you get 10 minutes to get back); after that we wait 2 mins for additional drops and continue with AI. If you quit (meaning you don't get sub if you have to go) you are boxed for future games.
Nukes are banned, blockades banned, all wonders allowed.

Feel free to add any kind of suggestions to the settings  :)

P.S. I could consider moving it to Saturday to have more Americans play after they get back from work, but let's see who wants to play first. Please sign up for the first one under this thread.

Why would you ban blockades? thats just insane. If you change that setting i'll thnk about playing :)

Also you could think about going with restricted leaders with maya banned. Would open up the picking a lot.

Why non league?

Also Friday night is not a good time for Ironman, it takes more than 10 hours to finish at least, so if you start 20:00 CET the earliest to finish is 6:00 in the morning and it will propably go till 9:00 in the morning.

Many players complained about blockades. I personally like it :)
So fine, blockades allowed!

Since it's more of a fun game rather than a competitive one, I think random is good. You don't get to play your game and pick the traits accordingly, but need to adjust your game style to what you have shuffled  ;D

P.S. Because I am boxed from the league Gitbliss!  8)
P.P.S. Why Friday night? Because next day is Saturday and we could eventually sleep longer, because on Saturday nights a lot of people actually go out rather than playing civ, because on Sunday morning some people go to church rather than sleep over a Saturday night Ironman, because, well, it's the best time I could think of.

Have you ever played straight from 8 in the night till 9 in the morning? After a full day at work?

It is not the same as playing from 2 midday to 3 in the night on a Saturday where you did not go to work!

Instead of doing 25 hour long iron(men/mans)?  why not host fun teamers with different maps or era's.  I think you would spark much more interest and it may actually be fun...
For all the "average" players who wont stand up to the "elite"- I will.

LoL! some here like full civ games, and you won't get that in short teamers. The whole idea behind this is to get to play a long game... 1 big good game is much more fun than 5 short ones, out of which 3 prolly suck badly.  Let's just hope we don't end up with 1 big sucky game :D

Is this friday the first one dece? And what time is "friday night"? Might need to plan a bit to be there :) Starting at like 20 CET?

Precisely at 20:00 CET I was considering:D (since that is 21:00 here and even later for any RUS players)

I might be up for another one this Friday, Dece. 

Btw, these games often don't last past 5 hours.
