    Due to a curious dirth of interesting series/games these days, here's the start to the latest succession game (monarch, large) of another gaming forum, teamliquid.net. Kudos to teamliquid's Fen for organizing, and intersite browsers, beware of spoilers.

    There exist 3 or 4 previous games for when you have nothing to do.

    The following is taken from the original source:

    Game 1 (Won by domination victory)

    Game 2 (Won by Space victory)
    http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=118520

    Game 3 (Lost via Forfeit :()
    http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=128129

    Game 4
    [red]Split, and In progress[/red]
    Team B thread
    http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=137067

    So coming off of a loss. Will teamliquid be able to make up for their recent loss? Will we get enough people to start a split game? Will the phase 2 of Starcraft 2 beta result in everyone not caring about Civ 4 anymore? Only time will tell my friends.

    What is a Succession game?

    For those who do not know. A succession game is one in which a group of people play a single game of civilization as a team, taking it in turns controlling the one player against computers. Players take a set number of turns and then write a report of what happened with screenshots to back it up for others that are playing/following to read.

    The goal of a succession game is ultimately for fun. It allows people with different play styles and different skill levels to play together and learn from each other.

    Let's have some fun

    I can haz shadow game as england.

    Edit: Turn lag is awful

    Edit2: After finishing my actions for the turn, I pressed the spacebar key 23 times while it said "waiting for YOU to end turn", before the game actually accepted my instructions to end the turn. 23 times. On turn 27. What the hell is it doing?!

    Yeah I noticed. I think it's waiting for the imaginary other multiplayer personnel, before assigning a computer AI.

    If you're really skipping several turns, I think you have to bite the bullet and press it exactly once.

    No, I'm not skipping several turns, it's worse than that.

    I'm attempting to end the turn for 5-10 seconds and the game is not letting me do it. It's worse than late game huge (at least for my comp).

    There's a delay where it says it's waiting for you after you've ended your turn, but in my shadow it didn't scale to become worse as the game went on. I think it's a constant time delay.
