Yeah, I think the extra complication is unneccesary. I have said I'd start a new hill for Pre-Gold if I get the demand for it. And I suppose people could want a "Team Hill", maybe with 2v2 or 3v3 team games. I really like one on one games though. It's a personal prefereance, not saying everybody has to share it of course. The games just go so quickly.

But I agree with Fyron I don't see a need for different crowns based on game settings. Regardless of the game settings everybody in the game is using the same settings so it shouldn't make a difference.

Ok, I have been playing around with the format on the league page. Trying to make it look sort of SEIV like, sort of PBW like. I also added some links to the games for each matchup in case you are curious what the progress of them is. Let me know what you think.

Had you bothered to read the page, you would have seen this:

Quote:
All games in the K.O.T.H. league are one-on-one games of SEIV and are to be played on PBW. The default game settings for K.O.T.H. League games will be small midlife cluster, no A.I or neutral players, and everything else will be the default SEIV game settings. Any of these settings can be changed with the mutual consent of both players.
I suppose I could be the king of the hill. Count me in!

What's the default Turn Duration, if one can't be agreed upon by the two players?

Also, you might save some time by making me KOTH now, instead of making me crush and humiliate otherwise friendly players.

The bravado of SE IV players never ceases to amaze me.

For all you people out there who, like myself, have missed out on the recent Tournments because you do not own Gold, good news.

Geoschmo is so kind, that he is going to have a Non-Gold (SE IV 1.49) K.O.T.H match up too.

To Apply follow the Same Rules but specify that you are a non-gold Space Empires player.

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

Fyron, that could be true, but perhaps some people play better when they can choose and use more varied racial traits and special technologies, where the choices might make other players pause or really develop much more slowly and in directions that don't aid them much. Some players may work better in 1 on 1 games, and others may play better when there are many players, using politics and allies to gain advantages.

I agree that the format is simple and allows for quick gameplay and resolution. As long as there is much rending and shrieking
