I don't think I meet this criteria. But if you'll have me, I'll play on Oz's team ...
Sign me upto the vanilla (OB) team.
Wonder how many members of the Vanilla team will suffer the 15 minutes of "now where did I put that Vanilla CD?" I just went through!!!!
Don't worry I have found it - looking forward to goin back to vanilla after exclusively BTS for the last few months!
After reading this, I got out the vanilla case and found it was empty. After a few minutes searching I found the vanilla disk in the warlords case. No idea where warlords is though
I'm also looking forward to playing vanilla again.
if there is room in the BTS team and you'll have me i'll take a spot.
My only SG open slot hasn't stayed empty more than 24h...
I was waiting for an opportunity like this.
Going to join my friends r_rolo1 and Trieste if you want me, though not as a captain... Or...
Edit: Though I'm not sure to meet the criteria with my 14 DM posts and 1 RBCiv incomplete thread...
The roster is filling up nicely, only a few open spots are left. We'll need some more on the Warlords Team yet. I'm looking forward to use the Warlords uber-unit - the Trebuchet - to full extent... As things are now the SG captains can decide on the last spots on their teams too, if you think a player fits in and is skilled enough you can add him.
^^Who are you thinking for BtS team leader ( no, not Greyfox ... my backs.... no more .... )? If you can't find someone , I can do it.
Well, the Fox is overseas ATM, but I'd bet he will play. I'm not sure in which team he'll want to play, but if it is the BtS team, he'll sure be the Captain . Otherwise I'll heed your proposal I guess .
If Ozzy is ok with the sixth team member being forced to a reserve role until the holidays, I'd like to give my vanilla disk a dusting. Just be aware that I'll have some time constraints for the next couple weeks.
I would like to play, if you'll have me. Vanilla or BTS is fine, don't own Warlords.
I think I qualify under your rules. I've played three MLGs now, and I'm on my way to my second consecutive RotQM loss! I'm also currently one of the most active posters at Deviant Minds!
You're in, Bindy
I'd love to play but I'm going to be on winter vacation soon without CIV. I will try to lurk the threads though. Immy - can you set a common check point of 1 AD and 1000 AD for all three threads so that we can get a rough comparison of the games? The players are different on the teams but I think it may be interesting to see the differences in how people play the three versions (particularly rexing speed).
If fractal serves up a pangaea type map, I think the vanilla versions are going to have an unfair advantage The vanilla cossack rush is scary...
Continent type map would favour Vanilla as well IMHO.... ( conquer continent pre-MilTrad, then Cossack rush the other = Dom )....
P.S How you're going to handle vassals? Vanilla doesn't have it and in BtS there are colonies and uber-maintenace costs to overseas possesions.... IMHO we should keep them, but they may be a big unbalancing factor ( as well as the GG )
I think we keep all options on the table. Each version will have advantages and disadvantages. That's part of what I see these games as doing is to identify advantages in the version you're playing.
Happy to have either stuge or Bindy on the team!
I am fiding it a bit difficult to get time to play civ this days, but it is even more difficult to stay out of this one. Imhotep, put me in any team you want, please.
I guess the special invitation doesn't work when you're on Autoskip for a popular SG series It is okay, I can lurk.
So, we're down to two players missing. Didn't think the roster would fill up so quickly. Now it's time for a team decision: Shall we wait for the roster to be filled up entirely or shall we start ?
As for Vassals and such stuff, I'm all for leaving things as they are. After all this is the main point of the concept - to see how the differences of the versions will pan out. I think were in for a very enjoyable game, at least I'm looking forward to it.
As for rallying points I think that is a very good idea. We will compare the games at 500 BC, 1 AD, 800 AD, 1500 AD and 1800 AD (should the games last so long, which I doubt). I beg the SG Captains to write a short summary once they hit the time marks with focus on overall team strategy, research paths, etc. Should be a nice thing to see those comparisons.
Thank you all for signing up, I think the number of players drawn to it in only two days speaks itself for the idea...
Now that's a shame . Have I done you any ill I'm not aware of ? Well, at least I hope you'll enjoy the lurk...
What is the difference between OB04 2.0 and OB04 1.5?
And what the heck do they mean anyway?
