he he, it was more dreaming than actual request. But I agree that a full 6pl game is the best and a 1v1 stand off is cool for showing off insane mass attacks not possible with a full game.

But why can't we set up matches inside Wembley or possibly the Superdome (if it's fixed yet)? Kick ass game with to geeks and 2 pcs in the middle with 40000 spectators flocking around...

I think that the game really shines with the dynamics of lots of players, but that the best way to judge the technical prowess of a player is in 1v1. Fortunately for me, there is more involved in winning than technical prowess. ;)

Indeed. Rimmer, what system for game-type selection are you planning to use? It'd be good to hold games of various different types so the winner is an all rounder, rather than - say - just an awesome genocide or diplomacy player.

Originally, I planned to do just that starting with a more or less free for all, then diplomacy, survivor, etc...

Done. And... It's about time you got here. :wink:

Edit: Just went to place the votes and realized that this is the second vote for Weps, who isn't on the list.

Leeroy and countersmurf, please cast another vote for someone that is on this list.

Thank you and don't worry, there will be plenty of opportunity for all a little later. :wink:

Ok, since there is definitely a call for Weps to play... here you go...

Weps, Defense Force, Rekno, and countersmurf can all enter, however they must express direct interest here.

Those that have voted can change their votes if they wish once the person is on the list. I have a record of who has voted for who.

Edit: Rekno did on page three, and good General, it is a casual game. :wink:

thx for the vote, but you don't owe me a backstab.

I stabbed at you as a little remembrance for our last game, where you (NA) tried to milk me (SA) for some measly points.
And that after you told me "you don't do that". It backfired and I slapped you back bumping you to 3rd. Weps won by 25pts.

The last game I returned your gift, I already had won. But I felt like setting an example. 8) 8)

I should have directed all remaining fire at your southern cities, since you had more than enough points to go around. instead I wasted 7-8 bombers on Weps htting nuttin of importance.


But they were good games. No hard feelings. ;-)

Jup, good games, unfortunately last one ended like 4 AM my time... Defcon is a bitch, when i finally met skilled players in battle, they turned to live in different time-zone (or their wifes / girlfriends are way more tolerant that my second half...)
