Please vote for the option that best represents your view of us playing a Multi-Team Demogame.
Neutral stance on this one.
I am strongly for a multi-team demogame.
I strongly oppose a MTDG as a replacement to the SPDG. First off, multi-player games usually involve one goal: killing everybody else off so you can reign supreme. It is rare, IIRC, that the tech race progresses out of the middle ages or that any peaceful means of winning the game is pursued. And ultimately, the idea of the SPDG is that we are one big team attempting to win this game together, not four to six tiny teams trying to crush each other. And keep in mind that PBEM's usually go very slowly. We have had enough trouble with attrition over a few months (heck, I wasn't active in either of the two most recent DG's)--what makes anybody think that a multi-player game moving slowly and lasting perhaps over a year would be better for participation?
Now, I wouldn't mind if an MTDG were played as a separate game, like the CISDG or MSDG were. I might even participate to see how those turn out.
But please don't kill the single-player demogame.
Just can't see how this will work well. Too many areas to break down.
100% for MTDG it will challenge and make the game much more interesting, a change is needed once in a while (not sure if MTDGs have ever been done)
Apolyton just finished one.
Well, since Apolyton and other sites have already done this, why should we? After all, since they have done variants, according to Strider, we shouldn't do them.
yes. if its been done before we automatically cant do it.
then that eliminates every and all possible ideas. someones done them.
I think it's workable, and would love to see such a game here. However, I'd ask that we wait until Civ4 before making any attempt to start, so we can see what kind of new possibilities are open to us.
i think we should wait for Civ4 to come to do the MTDG mainly because i lost my civ copy and don't have enough money to buy another one but that is just me
