Surge in Civ3 Conquests games in CivPlayers Civ3 league!
« on: March 07, 2011, 01:09:16 AM »
It seems we have a resurgence of Civ3 games being played in the last 2 weeks.  This is very nice to see.  I'm not sure of the exact cause of the surge in games, but I'm certainly not going to look a gift in the face.  I'd certainly like to build on this resurgence and keep the Civ3 MP community growing.  So if you still have links with vets that have stopped playing please send them an email and invite them to come back and take part in the party  8)

If this continues CivPlayers would certainly be willing to offer a CCC or similar competition to help keep things exciting and vibrant.

Civ3 maybe the oldest game played at CivPlayers but that certainly does not mean it can not be the most active!

We haven't made it to coding our own D./L server yet, but Queen has most of them here.

Hello All,

I am a long time Civ III  fan,  been playing since 2002 !  I recently found the game again and got it reinstalled and want to begin playing again.  I visited Multiplayer for the first time ever yesterday and was shocked to find a couple players in the room ! :-D   

I typically play in the afternoons (US - EST)  -  When have yall found it best to get online and play ?  Last time I looked there was no-one around. 

Thanks

i find this Surge for civ3c consequence to the "developed" civ4 and civ5. Personally i have no doubt that most people who play civ4 or civ5 will realise if they have never tried it or just forgot how was it, that civ3c is still best game in MULTIPLAYER, best team tactics, best worked scenarios, best ladder report (respect between players) behaviour.
Only reason we have more players listed at civ4 or civ5 leagues comes from merchandise and product promotion.. to sell and make money.
As a player in all Civ leagues i must say if you want a good multiplayer game with best relation in war tactics, players comunication and best use of game units.. just try civ3c, join a clan and play CCC.
best to all,

Well I think you are right about the general maturity level of the C3C players, but I do think the civ5 community is getting that way as well, mostly because like the early Civ3PTW days, players that are left are united by being the hardcore players willing to have fun despite the issues with the game.  Now the Civ4 community faces the most challenges, they have fewer players and many of the vets that are still playing don't seem to have that respect for each other that the Civ3 and Civ5 players do, and that is poisoning new and old players from playing Civ4.....I wish I had some easy solution to this, but other than boxing over half the current Civ4 players, it is really up to them to make the game last, if they are determined to treat each other like crap, then Civ4 MP will die and they need look no further to blame than themselves.......

As apposed to the Civ4 map hack that we  can not detect?  I'd be careful in criticizing one game over another, cheats can normally be managed by rules or the community to an extent that they do not interfere with the players that really want to enjoy the game.  And Civ2 was much worse than Civ3, and Civ5 doesn't have to much anti-cheat mechanisms built in either, it just massively resyncs if someone changes the xml files......

There is no cheating on civ3 conquests. Those would would try would quickly be found out ;)

The idea of death, the fear of it, haunts the human animal like nothing else; it is a mainspring of human activity - designed largely to avoid the fatality of death, to overcome it by denying in some way that it is the final destiny of man.
