Medal New game - The Art of War, Fight!

New game, The Art of War,

"It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperilled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperilled in every single battle."


No diplomacy game!

Age - MA game

Players - 16

MAP – Glory of the Gods

Nations - they will be randomly assigned, there will be no trading of nations if you do not like what you get.

Mods – CBM 1.5

Victory conditions – capture 8 capitals, once you have achieved your goal send you turn to the non playing admin, WingedDog for inspection.


Game settings:

Independents - 5
Research - Standard
Magic Sites - 45
Money - Default
Resources - Default
Supplies - Default
Random Events - Default (which is Common)
Re-naming - Off
Score Graphs - On
Hall Of Fame – 15
No exploits, stacking domes, copying Bogus orders and such

Hosting Schedule, Delays, Stale Turns, AI/Substitutes
A rough schedule will be -
First Turn - 48h.
Turn 2-20 - 24h quickhost
Turn 20 and beyond – negotiable
Personally, I feel that there should not be any delays made in the first 15-20 turns, people tend to lose interest and that might trigger a chain-reaction.

One more thing, do not sign up unless you can commit to this game and vanish without a trace at the first sight of defeat,

Everybody's welcome, and everything's up for negotiations, sign up.
State your settings and proposals for this game, Ashdod is banned.

http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showthread.php?t=43120

In case of breaking communication, and violating the no diplomacy rule, you will be either turned AI or there will be found a permanent sub. There will be no excuses.
You may not reveal your identity or "your Empires affair" at any time. Once you are eliminated you may post which nation you played if you want, but not who killed you.
BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU POST!

Everybody is free to comment on stuff like indie strength, and other harmless stuff like that as long as it doesn't jeopardize you or another player.

Do not use your own names on Pretenders! I recon just leave them as they are.

Send in your pretender and let the battle commence.

What would be so special about that game? There is RAND starting right now for a bit more experienced players, so you may have it hard to get vets here. I am tempted to join, with with random nations in MA I can get smth sucky. Can I resign if I really don't like the nation I get? And Ashdod is of course banned?

I don't know why Ashdod would be banned?

How did I not see that new no diplomacy game???
(edit: so it appears that teh RAND-DOM DOWN is invites only)

However you are correct about vets Zeldor, so I'll open this game for everybody. I'll probably just admin this then, unless someone who doesn't play volunteers to co-admin, and maybe Pasha will open that game for more players so I can play there perhaps, who knows...

No diplomacy, EVERYTHING up for negotiations.

no diplomacy means no in-game messaging too?

Ashdod is way way more powerful than any other nation that ever existed. You can make a team game, teams of 3, Ashdod alone, and he will win. I think Ashdod is banned in pretty much every game. There is no sense in playing with them, especially with no diplo to gang on them.

I think there should be no in-game messaging either. Slow but still possible way to team up and form alliances, and there should be no diplomacy.

It's been a while since I played a MA game with Ashdod, back than they didn't seem that all-mighty, maybe something changed in the meantime, thought their EA cousin was the bad guy.
But yeah, we can bane Ashdod. However I think a vote would be fare.

I would like to play in this.

I don't care if Ashdod is in either way.

Executor:

Look at the Ashdod thread in main section. Hinnom was the bad guy because it got a lot of attention early on. So devs did read it and reacted. But then people tried Ashdod and took a better look and noticed how uber it is. There is not much ranting about it now because it is banned in 90% of MA games [and MA games are really uncommon recently]. You can ask some vets

Anyway, I am in, but there are few nations that I don't want to play, so if I roll one of them, I will have to step out.

It says no diplomacy, but later on you talk about not breaking NAPs and agreements... aren't those mutually exclusive concepts?

Edit: So it looks like it's definitely no making NAPs/alliances/etc.
