i am for a bigger population, turbo subs, winner for the smallest collateral, winner for the most nukes left, and so one, ...!
i don`t like to forbid naval nuking or other stuff. i think we have to find the easiest game ways or the tourney will fail!

/me thinks I will start the new Season using minicom. It shouldn't interfere with R3D's tourney (if people actually play ;p ).

1. General 'Ace' rules apply
2. Most likely 1v1, 2v2, and 3v3 (InstaFlexiTeams™)
3. Sub nuking = allowed


All in favor say Aye.

I wonder how it looks with subnuking allowed, when subs can fire anywhere....perhaps makes the game to much easy....for some setups...

Long live good old fashoned rules!

Reason?

Also, it might be a good change of pace. Sure, at first people may go crazy with carpet bombing, however I think it will soon be realized that this is a lot like tossing 90% of your bombers into death and players will become more fine tuned with it. Could be wrong though. :P

I have to say it looked like a lot of fun to use that many nukes at such a long distance. :mrgreen:

with use of nukes in that way...any serious player will first transform into turtle...and playing tutrle way you can only make game to last for hours, and hours, and hours, and hours....

there will be no large battles on sea anymore since expirienced player know that his fleet can be destroyed very quickly that way.

but all in all...if somebody dont like it, he dont need to signup.

I disagree. I players don't use fleets, they will come to realize they can just walk up to the coast because the other player is keeping his fleet 'safe'. :P

before you make a decision, download minicom, set it up, and try it out. or at least watch the recordings of the games we have played...

Can reasons force you to change idea? I only said my preference.

I followed all the versions of minicom and said what I think about it..

I think there are many nice things (bugs fixed, bombers), other not so good for the game (fighters that automatically change targets, carriers that dont follow fighters during the naval) and only one really horrible (the new silos arc system). I think that minicom is a really nice effort from bert that add some good changes but also some that make the game more poor. I consider that some changes are a sort of update of defcon but some are a sort of fork of it...and I prefer defcon as game than minicom. So, if the question is to say IN or OUT for a tourney I say IN in a defcon tourney and OUT in a minicom tourney...at least now and in the near future.
