Default YARG3, non newb MA+ENP2 RAND game. Executor's Ulm winner on turn 76

Welcome to YARG3. The toughest and meanest arena , where the vets beat each other senseless .
This is a RAND type game. As in Random Anonymous No Diplomacy game.
Diplomacy or any form of communication is not allowed.

The game is not strictly targeted for vets but it is certainly not for green newBs.
More important though is your mettle. We want tough sons of *****es who won't go AI or stale on the first sign of trouble .
So try the following quiz:
A. I just lost a major battle. That sucks. Should I turn AI or start staling?
B. I just got gang banged by X nations. That sucks. Should I turn AI or start staling?
C. I just got attacked by stupid player XYZ, doesn't he see that it's an awful stupid move. That sucks. Should I turn AI or start staling?

If you've answered yes to at least one of them, then please join another game. YARG is not for the feint of heart. Here wars or fought the very bitter end.

Let's recap YARG history. Two games took place: YARG1 (http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showt...t=43461&page=9) and YARG2 (http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showt...=45188&page=10).

:
YARG HoF
A titan towering above mere mortals. Shrewd and fierce. He has viciously crushed all opposition and put the world under his iron boot. All hail the glorious victor. I give you the YARG winners:
YARG1: Isokron
YARG2: Dimaz and Psycho

These guys have made to the end. They've endured constant wars and heavy beatings. They were rushed, attacked, gang banged and took pretty much any form of abuse known in dominions universe but they did not succumb. They resisted defeat and extinction to the very end. They are the last shred of hope to their nations and should the iron grip of the winner ever loosen they will rise again to put up the fight. I give you YARG iron man:
YARG1: WingedDog, Raiel, Executor , TwoBits, Dimaz, WraithLord
YARG2: Don Pablo, Slobby, WingedDog, WraithLord

This individual is wise and generous. His selflessness allows us to enjoy the game. He is there to make sure the game runs smoothly. We all owe a big thank you to our beloved admin.

YARG3 description:
This is a RAND game. So no diplomacy whatsoever. No posting here your identity, your nation or giving clues as to what your ID is. Nations are assigned randomly, or rather, since so many nations are available, assigned according to picks and luck.

I will maintain the game thread. I will create and end the game. However the game will need one or two volunteers for two things. First, to assign nations and second, to admin the game. W/O such volunteers there will be no game
Please note that during the game I'll be stepping back and will be just another player. Don't PM me re. admin. stuff.

Some of the settings are open for discussion, the rest are fixed and will be marked by bold font.
Map: Orania
Hosting Pace: First 15 turns every 24h, turns 15-30 48h, turn 30-45 72h, turn 45-60 96h, turn > 61 120h.
Considerate extension giving policy. Hosting is planned for busy ppl.
Mods: Y3_CB1.9 (CBM1.9 copy for this game, attached). ENP2.
Renaming: off
Research: difficult
Graphs: on
HoF: 15
Indies: 9
Disallowed exploits: copying Bogus' orders and overfilling enemy lab to prevent his own forge.
Killing own mages under Ankh or LaD to gain freebe mages and troops. It's ok in a battle but it's not ok to set it up on purpose (whoever likes to do it knows what I'm talking about). I'm no longer certain whether or not CBM1.9 has fixed this. If it didn't please don't abuse it.
Probing armies with scouts/commanders must be done in such a way so as not to block movement.
Era: MA
Nations: Land only. ENP2 MA+Vanilla MA. Assignment is totally random.
Victory condition: ~50% VPs == 9 VPs. Each capital has 1 VP visible on game map.
Pretenders should be given nations name!

Default Re: YARG3, non newb MA+ENP2 RAND game. Discussion + enrollment phase.

I would like to redeem myself for my miserable performance as Niefelheim in YARG2.

My vote will be for completely random nations chosen after sign ups are closed. You probably know this, but enp2 is not all MA nations. Haida Gwaii is EA, and there are some LA nations as well. I've never tried that pack, only looked at some of those nations individually. I'll do a little testing when I get the chance.

cool. glad to have you on board.

re. ENP2. yeap, I'm aware of this. only the MA nations of the pack are available.

I'm not sure if completely random nations would work. Since for that you'll need what?- 27 or so players?

Perhaps three picks per player would work better.

Aw, what the hell, count me in. I still feel like whining like a little girl for getting stuck with Kailasa in YARG2 (despite folks telling me I should have kicked *** with them ).

But instead of griping about "let's have this nation in it, but not this one", I'll role the dice and take what the soon-to-retire Pantakrator gives me (come on Shinuyama/Niefelheim/Patala/any-giant-bible-god-insert-here/etc.!)

Format, shmormat. I don't care. I'll kill you all any which way but loose! (but really, indies-9 again? ugh... )

Why only 10 players?
Sign me up for now WL, tho if it doesn't turn up to be a slightly larger game I might drop it. Not sure I want to commit if it doesn't turn up to be a large competitive game.

Regarding ENP, there should an all MA nations mod uploaded by me on Llamaserver, we used it for the game Testing Ground.

TwoBits, I'm happy you've joined though I sure hope we don't end up as neighbors.

Executor, some players feel strongly for 8-10 games. Other like bigger games. I think yet other players don't care so much.
I personally prefer a big game, like 20-24 players. Let's wait to see how many players sign in.
I will be most delighted if you'll end up playing so I'm crossing fingers for enough players to sign up.

RE. ENP. Can you elaborate on that mod?- Does it allow all ENP2 in MA?- How is it named?

Indies 9 and hard research are fun. They screw up lot's of strats

That's the link for the DM file we used.

http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/attac...3&d=1301604832

It's just a simple job of changing the eras of those non MA nations from #era 1 and #era 3 to #era 2.

Hopefully it will be a big game, I suggest posting this thread on the other forum as well.

I got the impression that players from the other forum mostly like small games. Perhaps b/c I saw a number of such comments there.
Perhaps it's worthwhile to post there anyway. I'll do so tomorrow probably.

Oh and that ENP is 1.01. IIRC llama has made a more updated version.
Besides, 5/9 of ENP2 nations are MA. Should be enough to choose from, wouldn't you agree?
