Massive Humans vs Humans Game/Lets Player Tracker
Welcome to the tracker thread for the massive humans vs humans c2c game. 11 Human players will be competing against each other for world domination. The players consist of c2c developers, lets players and c2c fans. The game will be logged from different perspectives by 6 of the 11 players. AstralPhaser is doing a video let's play with commentary while the other lets players will use screenshots and text to produce great story-like let's plays. You can use this thread to track this game and watch/read it from the perspective/player you want or multiple ones.
The Let's Players Advantage:
If there is only one lets player remaining vs multiple non-lets players the lets player will get the "Lets Players Advantage". No other player will be allowed to take over their capital city. The lets players advantage will be disabled when only two players total are left in the game.
Will this game only have human players?
Initially this game will begin with 11 human controlled civilizations (randomly chosen) and no AI players apart from barbarians. Later on in the game however, AI players may emerge from barbarian cities or due to rebellion break off from other civs creating new AI controlled civs. Lastly some human players may resign from the game so AI players will take their place unless other human players would like to start playing in the place of others. A list below the current players list show those who would like to join if other players drop out.
How were the game settings/players chosen?
I created a setup thread allowing all the players to vote on settings or request to join this game. Players chose to vote for and against options they liked or disliked. The main options with the most votes were used for this game. The minor options and bug settings with votes totaling above 0 were used while votes below 0 were not used. For the few settings that has their votes tied I had the final chose and decided to either activate or deactivate them for this game.

How are 11 people going to be able to play at once?
Well actually the 11 human players will not be logged into the game all at once. Instead each player will be taking one turn per day then upload the save file to our special svn which stores our game. This means that at best we will only be able to have 1 turn per day leading to everyone submitting their lets plays about once every two weeks. Each episode will consist of 10 turns and will be synchronized with everyone's episodes. That means that if two civs meet in episode 4 of one lets play, the corresponding lets play will also have the two civs meeting in episode 4.
How should I watch/read the lets plays?
Below this first post is the Let's Play Episode Tracker. It provides links to view each episode through the perspective of as many of the let's players as you desire. Simply choose an episode, choose a lets player then get reading/watching. To access this list either scroll down or click this link: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showpost.php?p=11949205&postcount=2
Why has turn X been taken but episode X isn't up yet?
The lets plays will be recorded/written in sync with each-other so one persons episode 3 covers the same turns as another persons episode 3. Each episode will consist of 10 turns. To prevent players cheating episodes will have an upload delay causing them to always be an episode behind the actual turns being taken. In other words episode 1 (turns 1-10) won't be uploaded until episode 2 has been created yet not uploaded. So at the beginning of turn 21 every lets player will upload episode 1 (turns 1-10) and at the beginning of turn 31 players will upload episode 2 (turns 11-20).
