Red face MA game: Gladiators of Loemendor, not recruiting

Hi!

this game was going to be a simple LA game, except that the arena death match winner would have been greatly rewarded by the other players with n*5 gold and n/4 gems, where n is the turn number. Since no one wanted to play (...), I declare this thread closed.

Interesting concept but perhaps a bit unbalanced on rewards. So on turn 20 the winner would get 20x8 gems and money to boot. I like your idea but the reward may be slightly unbalanced.

Crazy afterthought
What if the victory conditions were 3 arena wins in a row (only)

Could.even make it a 9 prov map (cap only for each player) with zero conventional fighting. Sounds like an old star trek plot... Anyway it would sure cut down on micro.... I would play since the time for turns would be minimal yet fun.

True but perhaps that could be mitigated a number of ways..
Outright ban of some races
Or
Matches don't start till turn 15 or so (magic begins to nullify pure brawn ) with matches occurring every 3rd turn or so
Or
Perhaps early game if many giant races are in play they would take turns winning making 3 in a row difficult
Or
Some races get a pretender build penalty. Himmon gets fewer points.

Would play crazy different without expansion. Scales, bless, pretender design would have to be weighed towards creation of an early/mid/late game thug/sc. Research could be easy to get magic and items into play earlier. Your triple blessed Jotun may own 8 of 9 players but can't seem to kill that quickened thug with the paralyzing touch (or whatever).

No worries about naps though trading could be interesting.. That Ermor tart has 2 wins in a row... Who best to give the flambeau to for taking him down?

i'd certainly join that kind of game.

however its way over my nonexistent modding capabilities. I encourage you to host a game like this, souns very exciting to me.
