Welcome PSI soldier, I'll put you in an intermediate slot (tentatively).

Welcome Ghoul. Glad to have you on board.

rdonj, yes I know many vets may be burned out or over extended however this concept is a bit different and represents a break from the NvV concept. Many of the vets had asked for smaller teams and they won't be playing together on the same team or up against huge odds.

The vets will have an opportunity to personally lead their group to victory. Let us hope they see the novelty and worth of this approach, if not yes, we could settle for some upper level intermediates like yourself instead.

With great responsibility comes great privileges, thus we may need to reserve first choice for the vet team captains. Once again this may be needed to help some vets "decide" to play but will not unbalance the game as each vet led team will be playing against each other.

I´ll play. I think I fall somewhere in between the noob and intermediate rank, so I could fill either spot depending on other signups.

I've played a couple dozen games, held out for half of them until someone was declared victor, and won one. Do I count as a vet?

You'd probably fall into the intermediate category. If you'd like to join, I'll put you in an intermediate slot for now. Depending upon further signups the intermediate players may be promoted to the captaincy.

Welcome Algae and welcome back viccio. I'll update the main post accordingly. If anyone wishes to switch teams of anything feel free.

I usually use # of forum posts and join date to give me a general idea of how long a player has been around. This of course is an arbitrary measure and doesn't mean much by itself for a multitude of reasons.

Who is a noob and who is a vet is a relative idea of course. For instance Algae may be a vet compared to me as I have only 4 MP and 1 or 2 SP games completed. Whereas Algae might be a noob compared to maybe Ironhawk or Zeldor.

Some players may have hundreds of SP games under their belt and extensive modding experience and forum posts but only a few MP games and still be a vet due to excellent grasp of game mechanics.

But generally in the context of the whole community I guess it refers to number of MP games played and generally implies numerous victories as a result of experience. If you've played in so many Dominions games that you can't count the number and/or your Shrapnel rank includes the word "General" and/or your in the Hall of Honor thread your likely a vet. Ultimately only you how much experience you have.

Hey Sept.

Kudos for continuing the thread, and for creating interesting games.

I'd like to join, I think I qualify as a vet. I'd like to be considered for the Devas, if they'll have me; EA-Mictlan please.
