    Welcome to your BtS SGOTM 25 Team Thread. Please use it for all internal team communication, turn logs and discussions. Subscribe to it to receive notifications, and do not visit the other team threads for this game until you have finished.

    I'll create the Maintenance Thread shortly for this game, where teams and staff may post non-spoiler information of general interest. You will find the Game Details in the first posts of the Maintenance Thread. If any changes occur in the game settings or rules, they will be posted in that thread.

    Please wait until your team leader/administrator/scribe has reserved a couple of top posts in this thread for game admin information. Then post here to let your team know you have arrived.

    Good luck with the game. Enjoy!

    First to post is the team captain. :goodjob:

    So there's nothing to dicsuss, right? Admins will pick the save, probably immortal and we'll see what that means.

    np, my captain philosophy is summed up in one word: delegate.

    Okay, I'll handle the first-post admin duties. What's your password? :mischief:

    Whoa, the thread is up. :cool:

    Hello strange people!
    Thanks for taking me along.

    Never played one of these with a bomber. (It's like flying artillery!)
    Hopefully we get the save that uses it.

    WastinTime sounds good for captain duties.

    Combat should be fun. Anyone know what it's like to have a Choko with 6 first strikes? We get Drill I for free. Probably won't need a healer so much...if I understand how that works.

    Deckhand posted last night, but now I don't see his post. Maybe AlanH deleted it and is going to revise the OP?
    It said deity. Didn't change much else that I can remember. There was "Earthlike added to map type.

    Checking in from Vega$ this week.

    One thing I was thinking about was whether or not we think we could win by AP Cheese super quick and somehow eek out enough points in the other categories for the win. I think AP would be the absolute fastest VC but not sure we could have enough points by then.

    Mitchum, are you still planning to play our 1st turnset (and then fade away)?
    If so, do you think you can put out a PPP before the save is available? using bbp's test save?

    We've all spent some time thinking about the big picture, but not much short term planning. Maybe we can get the game moving without nailing down bigger plans.

    This reminds me - I don’t think the admins ever answered the question about whether religions would be pre-assigned or random. Might be worth confirming? We also have COL and Philo for free, in addition to the ancient ones, so presumably we just get those.

    I can't really do anything this week. I'm on a business trip and won't have much time for anything... any spare time I do have will be filled with the normal things that happen here that no one is allowed to talk about. ;)

    I'll try to dive in next week when I get back.

    I'd be reluctant to make any detailed plans before the actual save is out. My test game involved a lot of guesswork based on a screenshot.

    right, but we could turn our attention towards things like first tech, first builds. or Bomber recon pattern, etc.

    We don't know we'll have a bomber, right?

    Chokos aren't as powerful as people think.
    They are expensive and the collateral damage they put out are only 2/3rds of the collateral damage Catapults cause.


    Paired with a bomber and Catapults though, and they are insane!
    The bomber can bomb down city defenses to 0%, then hit the stack with as much collateral damage as 1.5 Catapults.
    Plus, the bomber never dies.

    Then use 3 more catapults after the bomber to get everyone down to half hp.
    Then use 1 Choko to get everyone down to 40% hp.
    City is dead, and not much healing is needed if First Strike Chokos are used to clean up.

    Iron and Bronze and Horse Tiles can also be bombed. :crazyeye:
    I dare say the whole world can be rolled over with a single bomber.

    Plus the bomber explores the map for us from the get-go, telling us where our slaves are and such.

    Sounds a bit slow a quite expensive. Maybe some cheap, fast chariots to clean up. Either sounds fun tho.
    Depends if we're up against lbs, Muskets or better units.
