With the Noob v Vet game now having finished, maybe you'll get an influx of players for the 'normal' nations in this game, allowing you to get your desired Overlord : Normal ratio. I'm sure there are now a few confidence filled noobs out there from that game who want to show that their downing of the Vets had nothing to do with numerical advantage

Best of luck with the game everyone. And hope it develops more-or-less as intended.

Seeing I'm fast gravitating towards zero ongoing games I'd like to sign up if there's still room.

If there's still space I'd like to take part as a normal nation.

Thanks greg . I of course hope that you will be able to stay with your first choice, players permitting.

Viccio: Sure, you can play.

Atul: I'd love to have you. Would you like in as an overlord? With all these other sign ups, I think I need another.

Coobe: Yes you may join. Sign ups will stay open for 3 more days.

Mithras: Welcome aboard.

Calahan: Yeah, I was hoping to get some of the players from noobs vs vets. They've been very good players, doing a good job of avoiding stales, sticking with the games, and finding subs when necessary. And I can see I have 3 now Of course, if more Noobs alumni wish to join, I will be only happy to take them.



Edit: Okay, so technically if I want 6 overlords with 24 players, I'm looking at a 4 to 1 ratio of normals to overlords. If all players on the list, including tentatives were to play we would be exactly at that ratio right now. I'm not going to worry too much about exactly hitting this ratio. Anywhere between 3 to 1 and 4 to 1 should be fine.

Well, if you have more overlord qualified players than needed, some of them could possibly be convinced to play normal nations? The real problem would be if you didn't get enough overlords.

Good to be on board. If you feel that you need overlords I can do that, won't have problem the other way either. I'm easy.

This sounds fun, or at least unusual, so I'd like to join too!

BTW, what are the diplomacy parameters to be in this kind of game?

Welcome aboard, twobits I am confused though, what do you mean by diplomacy parameters?

Squirrel - I think we're doing okay on the overlord to normal ratio right now. Mostly veteran players aren't signing up for the game though, so it may be hard to get a full game with 6 overlords. I think we're probably not going past 5.

Atul - Thanks for being flexible. For the moment I will mark you down as an overlord. We'll see if we need to change things around later.
