ladder CTONs - how to find them
« on: February 03, 2010, 07:01:46 PM »
Hi all civplayers!

I'm new to the league, to some degree excited about the whole idea, but I have a big problem - could not find league CTON s to join. After reading in the forum, that this is the best practice for novice and be responsible for himself, I am looking in the lobby and in the "GameSpy Server List" section of the forum nearly every night for one or two hours and so long no success in finding CTOn with free space. I started to lose points for inactivity.
Some advices  or even tricks in finding a games to play when I don't know anyone here please?  ::)

generally there is elimination and a limited turn amount, so the game can be finished. CTON = just a ffa game without alliances, rest settings host as you like.

My preferred settings for a 5 or 6 player ancient era cton are:

Inland Sea - Small Size - Medium Sea Level - Balanced Resources
Civs:  Random, Unrestricted Leaders = Yes
Turns:  125
City Elimination:  2
Turn Timer:  Blazing
Always War
No Huts, Barbarians, or Random Events

That should about cover it.
