    Since I'm not quite sure how to do this, I'll post my resume lol

    If I have to choose, team 5 I guess

    Note: I posted this in the other sticky thread since it "seemed" more social, though I didn't realize how young this thread really is :p

    Note2: I'm professed in monarch-noble difficulty :3 (at least in Rise of Mankind and Fall From Heaven II AND the Fall Further ModMod)

    So I just sign-up here? All right, this looks interesting, I have the most recent version of BtS with (afaik) working online, and more than enough free time for the next few months. :lol:

    Once again not enough sign-ups here yet to care about any particular team, so just stick me in whatever you want. I play emperor/immortal level but of course that's all single player so it mostly won't apply. I have almost no multiplayer experience, just blindly jumping into a random game on the built-in online system, so I need a learning experience. The quick-trigger nature of regular online civ doesn't appeal to me but I was never able to get into a pitboss game in time so here's my chance. :)

    Please place me on Team 1. I play emperor level in single player. Also, I am a uniter not a divider. :scan:

    I don't know if this matters... I also love playing fantasy sports... and I loved checking online to see how the election was going. I must have checked my fantasy baseball team at least six times a day so I wont "flake out" on the team... I love Civ... been playing faithfully since Civ 1...:goodjob:

    Sign me up!

    Random team is swell. Or I can serve as the founding member of team 3?
    Whatever you think!

    I'd like to align myself with Mr. Domino369 on Team 5. After reading his profile I found myself relating to his style of play and experiences.

    I like to follow a Truman Doctrine when I play using things like multilateralism, proxy wars, and things similar to the Marshall Plan.

    This should be fun, if I can keep up with it...

    Is it possible to sign up a team? Why is this limited to 5 teams? Sounds like the number of teams should be limited to the amount of players that sign up. How many people on a team? I doubt i would have trouble scarping together 20 people, but if we need more than that i might have to do some digging... My experience is that any more than 5-7 people on a team become unvieldly though. As such a limit to five teams seems rather forced.

    On the front page it says that this is a merge between sgotm and pitboss. Is that true? Or is it more like a diplo game in multiplayer format? Is most of the game roleplaying within the nation? Or are we cooperating to win? Probably a merge right? so something like this http://www.chaosciv.com/index.php just in sgotm form? For the record the only games i play currently are pitboss and sgotm...

    Where can i find the game settings? I assume they will be tuned to maximum diplo, meaning tech trading and vassal states on, barbs and huts on(i don't like any of these settings but whatever).

    Have you considered having a sign up more similar to sgotm? http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=288968 here is an example. Predefining the number of teams seems a bit silly to me...

    Also how competetive is this game? If all teams are on the level of say the top 6-7 teams in sgotm then great, if they are varied like in your typical pitboss game, then there might be problems as the ones who don't have anyone on the team who can help the team doing the right decisions could very quickly find the game little fun.

    Hello to all,

    I would like to join one of the teams ( team 4 is currently empty, I can go there, or whatever ). It's my first game of this type, but I'm a seasoned civ player from Civ1 to Civ4.

    @Oyzar:
    Well, I think that diplomacy (which is a major part of such a game) becomes rather hard. Also, since these games tend to take quite some time, activity usually drops after a certain point in time, as more people leave for several reasons, while few sign up. (Like you see in the SGOTM too for example). If you have a lot of teams, that problem will be bigger.
    The previous MTDGs (1x civ4 vanilla, 2x civ3 conquest, one of which is still going on, and is now in the modern era) have been in PBEM format, so the pitboss thing is quite new to most of us, I think.
    Yes, maximum diplo is usually ensured. Also, previous games have always had maps that didn't really allow rushing, making sure the game lasted at least until the industrial era. I don't think Vassal States should be on to be honest, I can't imagine a team wanting to play on as a vassal.

    Well, on the other hand, knowing roughly how many teams there are going to be is critical for deciding things like map size. I also can't see the MTDG working with more than 5 or 6 teams, but that's probably because I'm used to the current format.

    I think this was one of the major differences between the civ3 MTDGs and the civ4 MTDG. In civ3, I believe most of the "big players" were playing, all on different teams, leading to a very competitive game. I think the civ4 MTDG suffered quite a bit by having 1 very strong team (with DaveMCW), while the other teams didn't have many top players. This was perhaps also caused by the fact that we started in the early days of civ4 vanilla, when many people didn't really know how civ4 worked. Attracting top players, and spreading them around, is very important for this game, and I think it would be great if people like you, who normally reside in the other parts of this forum, could attract good players there.

    I would very much like to play on team with Oyzar, although I doubt I have time to actually play - so sign me up along with him as a lurking poster :)

    Hey all,

    I just registered today in the forums but i have a bit of experience in Civ 4.

    I have archived cultural victory on deity with inca people (vanilla civ) and scored several inmortal victories in vanilla, BTS and warlords.

    (deity on BtS its harder to archive, ¡¡can kill civilizations but cant deal with barbarians!!)

    I allways play large or huge maps.

    I have original BTS and civ 4 but have problems updating them (for some reason it get frozen when i try to update and nothing happens) not sure if that could be a problem for playing this kind of games, anyway i might try to uninstal everything and instal it again (never tried that for lazzyness :p ).

    I would like to take part on this game though.

    On a side note: im spanish, but i read and writte english quite well so thats not a problem.

    some questions: ¿when is this starting?

    ¿how long is this expected to last?

    for experienced players: ¿how much time does this kind of games take each day?

    ¿how many players are there in each team?

    ¿how many civilizations play at a time?¿one civ for each team?¿for each player?¿one civ each team plus some computer controled?.

    Thanks for the info.

    Hopefully as soon as we get enough people

    Last one lasted about 2 years

    It took me 30 minutes each time the save came around to play the turn.

    Depends how many people join

    5 civs, 5 teams which the players are put in and no computer players :)

    I would like to sign up as well. I won't say which team just yet - do we have to assign teams straight off the bat or can we do that at a later date?

    I've been playing Civ since the demo of Civ I and have played every expansion pack and variation of the genre since.

    My favourite game setting is huge map, epic on Emperor/Immortal diff.

    I like to play a balanced game mainly a developer/expansionist with mid-late game military.

    Im sorry but i think 2 years is way too much time for a compromise, although i like the idea, i cant compromise half an hour daily for 2 years long, sorry.

    Good luck with the game ;).

    Isn't the time limit now to make sure it's quite a bit shorter than the last game? Like only a few months?

    I don't think this game will last close to 2 years - the last game was played under a PBEM format, and stalled several times while people handled patching issues. The game lasted until turn 210 (if I remember), which is just over 1 turn per week.

    This game will be much faster - more likely about 3 turns per week, I estimate.

    Team Assignment Request:
    Any team that doesn't have General_W on it! I've had to put up with his good-natured cheeriness for the last 3 games, and that really goes against my natural inclinations ;) :old:

    I would like to participate. Team 4 would be fine. I am unsure as to how exactly to proceed. I will of course monitor this thread so if something is required of me to participate please let me know.
