Default New MP game-Metal on Metal (discussion+recruiting)

None of my new games seem to be actually materializing, and my main game seems to be stuck in permaslow, so I thought I would float an idea for a new game.

Presumably it wont start until the new patch hits so we have time.

Everything except graphs off is subject to debate.

The idea: insanely huge armies of guys so well armored they can barely move.

Mods- SingleAgeMod (+some CBM/EDM at least for pretenders, 1.8 if it comes out in time?)

Magic Sites-LOW (whatever will give 5% for grassland so weenies can still search if they want?)

resources: 300 percent!

money/supplies probably higher than normal, but not by much, I dont want people buying extra mages without having a serious tradeoff. (Money 150%, Supplies 175-200%)

very difficult research.

The problem is I need a good map. I think 8-12 people max.

That way if someone finds an overwhelming strat for the extra production it wont drag on for years.

Any interest or map suggestions?

Suggested nation list for discussion:

EA:
Pangaea
Machaka
Arcoscephale
Abysia
Ermor
T'ien Ch'i
Vanheim
Yomi
Oceania

MA:
Pangaea
Arco
Pythium
Man
Ulm
Marignon
TC
Agartha
Abysia
Shinuyama
Oceana
Ctis?

LA:
Arco
Man
Ulm
Marignon
TC
Jomon
Abysia
Pangaea
Atlantis
Pythium
Bogarus

further suggestions or objections welcomed.

Anyone who wishes to play PM or post your top 3 nation choices. thanks.

That sounds like a cool idea for a game. I assume it would be restricted to nations like Ulm, Abysia or Marignon, with lots of heavy troops. I'm not that sure what a good map would be though.

I need another game and would be interested in this. This sounds like Scourge of Nations that I'm currently playing in, although you are taking the minimal magic/lots of troops even further. I would be in favor of the participants picking an allowed list of nations that fit the parameters and then having them randomly assigned.

I dunno about having nations randomly assigned. I'd prefer to pick from allowed nations.

I'll play as well.
I like the idea of an agreed upon list of nations followed by random assignment.
The premise sounds interesting

I would love to play, although I would prefer to also pick from allowed nations rather than just getting one randomly assigned.
