Default Re: Are you tough enough to be the "King of the Hill"?

Even thought the game went against me, I think Random maps are better.

I started in the second system from the bottom right and didn't expect Yulroy to be in the bottom right corner. When I discovered that, I was thinking about how I could box him in and expand into the rest of the systems. Unforntunetly his first attack took out my Space Yard facility, which stopped my defenders from being built (I had 15% bonus in Space Yard constuction) effectively killing me.

If we were playing a custom map, I never would have learned to defend my Home System in the first 1-4 turns.

Geo - You want to delete our Game on PBW, I don't want to be reminder any more.

When I can't find a way to reference something in terms of pro-wrestling, I'll worry.

You have revealed my plan for winning in "The Good, Bad, Ugly and Dead"!! Damn you!!!

Ya know... now that I think of it...

Don't knock this entirely just yet... but think of the way KOTH is played in real life. Maybe there is room for something like it here.

Once you are on top of the hill, you are ganged up upon!! The odds are not 1 on 1 for long.

OK OK I know it's a bit absurd, but at least I'll entertain myself with the thought. What if...
after your first defense at the top of the Hill, you then have to defend yourself 1 on 2, then 1 on 3!!! Now THAT would be a feat.

OK, back to reality...

Sounds like it would make great commentary for the rest of the KOTH players...

"And Geoschmo, our current KOTH Champion, has Cheeze stuck in the corner with Dreadnaughts on one side, BaseShips on the other...
Oh, No...
What is that Stone Mill???
Where did Suicide Junkie come from...
He has...
It's...
On no, It's a Star Destroyer...
Suicide Junkie can't do this, can he Stone Mill???
And Geoschmo, he hasn't seen his danage yet.
Its entering Geoschmo's Home World...
This is the end, Stone Mill...
I can't watch...

Oh yes, that DOES pose a problem, now, doesn't it?

Well, as S.J. says, (I think), maybe it's the one who backstabs best! Uh, well, errr... just how do we prove that?

Well maybe this has application as some kind of special event outside the regular KOTH rules. We can call it a pay-per-view special!
Add all kind of random events, player entries, and chaos. Hilarity ensues.

Regular KOTH is easiest to manage with "Thunderdome" Rules: "Two man enter... one man leave."

More fun brainstorming:

The Royal Rumble: 20 players draw lots. Each player enters the game according to his draw every 5 turns. One winner.

Chalk one up for Geo, and send me to the bottom where I belong. I stand soundly defeated at turn 64. The game could have continued for a while, but I could not have won.

Ok... This time I think I have an honest-to-goodness cool suggestion!

The title holder for KOTH should have a neat KOTH championship icon added to his/her signature block!

Past winners of the KOTH should have a small, (but not as nice) "former KOTH" icon.

Perhaps one of our fantastic celebrity artists can come up with something? Maybe it looks like a championship belt?

What do you think?
