    WRT to point three. That is will mean that we will either vote for a representative to be the designated player who plays the turns for each save. If we go with the Sucession game method, then the DP will rotate amongst all players giving everyone an equal chance to play the save.

    I believe that we should have elctions to vote for the Designated Player and another elections that will be needed. We will need a team effort for us to do well.

    Here is a side note. What level d you normally play at? I am an Emporer player, but I am mainly a player against humans, so that really does not affect my playing abilities to much.

    as for civs:I really like greece, and the ottomons. but maybe we should try to get an island/continent to ourselves. If we pick an American civ and culturally linked start locations are on, we have a pretty good chance of being able to grab large sections of land with no early war, and can focus on infastructure. After all, no one plays America...right? sure all save America are agricultural, but the UU's suck. maybe grab the maya?

    i dont minf on map settings, any will do. I'd prefer it if the difficulty setting was regent, but dont really mind what it actually is.
    Civ- Greece- early defensive UU, as other teams will probably want an ofensive UU for early use.
    Carthage- same reason as greece
    Maya- Industrial and Agricultural, arguably the 2 best traits in the game

    UU too expensive never mind only 30. I thought it was 40. that's not too bad. i thought about them earlier but thought the UU was too expensive maybe we should give them a look.

    current theory

    Name:Maximus Fanaticus
    Formal: M.I.A.
    Noun: the missing (???) Soldiers (???)
    Adjective: Missing (???)
    Title: General

    and our first couple of cities should be named after us :D how do we want to do that? random order? PC rank? order we signed up?

    Just thinking we could really play with the psychie of the other teams here ... as there will be numerous messages about ...
    "X Forces have taken your city" ... X should have the ha ha factor, but also a grrrr factor as well ...

    As per city names ... really like that idea ... let's get the player order sorted and then that order is used to name ALL cities ... :clap:

    Cities taken ... they are re-named ex-New York or ex-Berlin

    EDIT - Same idea for Army names

    well considering how late i signed up, PC order looks pretty good right now :mischeif:

    @fe3333au: so when we capture new-York we re-name it ex-new York?
    do we name all units after ourselves, or justarmies?
    and after we get past 10 cities do we want to go with New Classical_hero, or do we want to Start using Athens, Sparta, etc.

    the 3 city name orders:
    sign-up order:
    Black_Hole
    classical_hero
    CivGeneral
    Emp. Napoleon
    Meleager
    fe3333au
    Naimyth
    azzaman333
    ybbor
    Kentharu

    PC:
    CivGeneral (11264)
    classical_hero (4157)
    ybbor (3093)
    Black_Hole (2467)
    Emp. Napoleon (1861)
    fe3333au (1678)
    Meleager (264)
    azzaman333(174)
    Kentharu (65)
    Naimyth (1)

    Random:
    Civgeneral
    Meleager
    Emp. Napoleon
    Kentharu
    fe3333au
    azzaman333
    Black_Hole
    Ybbor
    Naimyth
    Classical_Hero

    let's go with Pc, it's like going in order of senority (plus i don't like the idea of becoming some two pop tundra town that only makes wealth :p)

    Do we want to make our name M.I.A. official? So that it looks like we've actually done comething besides name stuff after ourselves?

    how do we want to start researching? 100% 10%? exclusivly trade? How do we want to place our cities? ICP? OCP? "Ohh, look at that spot over there, that looks good"?

    You misinterpret ... we should name every city as we are not playing as Greece ... so after 10 cities ... the player who's turn it is ... can name city whatever they want to ...

    Captured cities put ex- on the name just to rub it in ... I have no problem with ex-New York

    Re-name everything ... I don't mind but I suspect this will not be taken up ...

    Armies ? ... sure why not have a name ...

    I have no problem ... I guess we have a day for input ... How is the voting going?

    Ummm ... correct me but don't we discuss this stuff during the game ... or what is the point of having a team of 10 ... just to be a cheer squad? ...

    It seems that we shall be called M.I.A. or Missing In Action.
    As far as the city names, why don't we come up with two different names at the start, with the order going from those who joined first.

    Regaring our names for our civ.
    I like ybbors suggestion with the guestion marks refering to the civ that we have picked.
