    This Poll is about whether we will let the opponents of the French (us!) be chosen randomly by the computer or chosing up to 3 of them ourselves. During the discussion for this topic several tribes were mentioned as possible "chosen" opponents. There will be 12 opponents for us to challenge in DG4. So we must decide - All Random or Mostly Random with some options we choose. There will be a second poll if Random is not the winner here. The second poll will determine the extra tribes chosen. Your options above will be:

    All Random

    11 Random with 1 Tribe chosen

    10 Random with 2 Tribes chosen

    9 Random with 3 Tribes chosen

    ABSTAIN

    If you do not vote for All Random, please specify which Tribes you would choose, the number of Tribes you specify depending on the option you chose above.

    Discussion can be found here!

    Poll will be open for 3 days.

    I voted All Random, it seems like the only "real" way to do it.

    I voted all Random too, but I voted to chose the environmental factors (Age, Climate, Temperature).

    I've also voted All Random here, but like Cyc I think it's important that we select our environment.

    10 random, 2 chosen.

    Then a next poll, wich includes every other civ, is posted which decides which 2 other civs are chosen.

    I'm abstaining. It's the same for me which oponents we have, but if someone wants to choose someone, it's ok.

    Not all opponents are equal in my opinion. I'd like to see Germany definitely in.

    In the discussion, I said I wanted to have the English in. Should I be daring and be consistant? Yah. Consistant.

    I realize the English are not a strong opponent and will probably get snuffed like they did late in the previous demogame. I just think that they will allow some good story lines for the CHD.

    OTOH, If we go culture-linked-start off, they may not even be near us.

    From my peek at the poll results, however, it is going to be random anyway.

    :king: (Only in Canada you say,) ... Pity

    This polled is closed. We have chosen our opponents to be all Random. A little less than a third of you have chosen to pick an opponent to add (in different denominations). Please post your thoughts in the discussion thread for this poll.
