LORDS OF HISTORY 6: a century of pikes

Post by fogman » Fri Feb 05, 2016 4:14 am

The age of the pike is to be featured in this latest offering of the Lords:

The golden age:
Ravenna 1512, http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtop ... 92&t=54525
Flodden 1513, http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtop ... 92&t=50005
Marignano 1515, http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtop ... 92&t=42193

The battle that broke Burgundy and made the Swiss confederation into a superpower:
Nancy 1477, http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtop ... 92&t=50808

The last glorious charge of the Swiss pikemen:
Moncontour 1569, http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtop ... 92&t=47760

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Note I have replaced Novarra 1513 with Flodden 1513 for the sake of variety as Novarra plays out too similarly to Marignano.
*Make sure you have the last Marignagno version (the one where the Swiss need to detach a column for a flanking attack on the french left).

Challenges Tables. Challengers are always side2 (so the receiving player can start playing right away). Each player has 5 challenges to make, one for each battle. Please make all your challenges at the same time. NO FOW, NO DOUBLE MOVES. USE PASSWORD. All 10 games to be played simultaneously not sequentially.

I expect in the event of FOG (U) being finally released that the server will still be open for some time to allow games already on it to be finished. They're not dumb enough to wipe it clean and annoy people.

Players so far:
fogman
lord nytram
iandavidsmith
(londo)

Given that FoG (U) is demonstrably close at hand now, we will wait for it and start the tournament on the new dedicated MP server (besides I haven't been able to join Londo and we're still short one player but it wouldn't be difficult to get an experienced player because many of them will come back to see how the new version shapes up). We can use the tournament to familiarize ourselves with/test the new engine (and for me to see how the scenarios designed with RB behave with Unity).

You can sign me up as well. It'll be a good way to try the new engine. I haven't tried the beta in quite a wile.

Sorry I missed your PM, but yes, you can absolutely count me in for this one! :) This era is my favourite of all those covered by FOG, and a great opportunity to play-test the new system.

Yep, I'm still up for it, and can start as soon as Jon and Chris are on board.

Lord only knows how long it will take before FOG(U) is ready to go; the recent bug reports do not seem trivial.

I'm good with the old version for this. When FOG(U) comes out it'll certainly be a V1.0 and in need of fixes/patches/etc. If you played the original FoG V1.0, the new FoG will almost certainly be better on release than that was.

You should actually be side 2 so the accepting player can play right away.
