Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

Not sure how outcome of an attack can make anything clear, except who is the winner. We are concerned that Lysimachos might be under influence of Carthaginian-Epirean propaganda and would like a public confirmation of Non-Aggressions Pact with 5 years warning between any hostilities. (Can negotiate...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

A decade or two is a bit of an exaggeration. Probably two turns is more accurate. The fact that their incompetence/deception makes the agreement void, particularly when it's not clear which it is, is your opinion, but not one I expect many will hold in high esteem. I would also wonder if you would ...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

I feel truly sympathetic to the Macedonians, your losses must have been truly staggering. That Epirus did not attack aetolians immediately is clear. But that doesn't mean they did not have the intention to. Aetolia is likely to sit in its borders and defend. That Macedonia decided to attack immedia...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

Just to be clear to everyone, I have no bad feelings for Pnoff. It's a game and these events are perfectly acceptable within the scope of the game. Yes, I'm a little frustrated, but my annoyance is equally with myself as with the king of Macedonia as I was too trusting... you live and learn... I ju...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

The Senate announces that the parchment opened on receipt from a courier arriving back from the Epirus court told a sad story. If ever a leader had written their own suicide note it was here. The previously agreed Alliance (by the end of the 3rd year) between Rome and Epirus....upon being received ...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

Just to be clear: Antigonids are our trusted ally, as was made public at first turn, unlike the sneaky "maybe alliance" between Rome and Epirus. They performed their part honorably and attacked Athens swiftly and with much smaller army than Epirus had available, exactly as agreed. BUT due to time c...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

If the great nation of Macedonia is complaining that Epirus did not provide support for a war against two tiny Greek nations (with the Antigonids help no less), then Carthage considers this a pretty flimsy excuse for what appears to be wanton aggression. At best the whole cassus belli is based on a...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

And then you left us alone to fight Aeatolian menace, so that you can profit from blood spilled by Macedonian warriors. Antigonos is our ally in fight with with Athenian-Aeatolian covenant, and their armies are already at the gate of Athens, their fleet blockading their ports, despite being so far ...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

My archivist says that they murdered their king long time ago and since then the anarchy reigns. No wonder they don't even know whether they're in alliance or not. Anyway, the plot of Epirus to bring barbarians to rule the cradle of civilization that is Greece is now exposed for everybody to see. Sa...

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

I assume you are aware Epirus may already be in alliance with Rome.......? Maybe the dignitary of maybe Rome should speak maybe straight, like we do here in Greece. What is Rome, anyway? My secretary says it is a town near Etruscan Kingdom which has its hand busy with other things. - Pnoff of Macedon

Re: Field of Diplomacy - Calling Players for an MP game

Dear Morbio, King of Epirus. We are disappointed that you went after independent island, instead of taking your part in fighting Aetolian barbarians and leaving them free to pillage our lands. You know as well as we do that right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, whil...

Lists of Objectives?

Are there lists of national objectives somewhere? In particular, I'm interested in Macedon (playing MP now, but don't have advanced SP save to check). Thank you!

Re: OPM World Conquest on suicide. Feedback/bugs/thoughts (Yes its possible)

In case you missed it, shockk has not won the game yet. He posted that it would take 50 more turns to merely surpass the highest AI legacy. It would take even longer to actually reach the winning threshold. So WC is possible, but may not win the game any quicker than building legacy. By his own adm...

So to summarize, I was considering a rule, but decided not to implement. The current game has no rules. Instead, diplomacy is encouraged to solve any strategic problems your army can't handle. Does that clear it up? :)
Sure, let the anarchy reign :twisted:

Oddly enough, the one ground rule I've considered in the past is.......no peace for at war factions for 10 turns. :lol:
Ground rules should be simple and unambiguous. What is no peace? Is war without fighting a peace? If yes, then how intensive should the fighting be to not be peace?

Re: OPM World Conquest on suicide. Feedback/bugs/thoughts (Yes its possible)

Shockk's point is that WC is possible, decadence is not really a problem with proper management, and bunch of other things (hope I state that correctly) I was making the point that decadence should be a problem even with proper management, especially while conquering half of the world . decadence n...

Re: OPM World Conquest on suicide. Feedback/bugs/thoughts (Yes its possible)

The point is that the AI is trying to win the legacy game. It doesn't react to a WC the way humans would because it's not programmed to recognize that play style. It can quite easily be tweaked to do that. It would even make sense for the AI to trigger mass revolt at some tipping point. That's the ...

Re: OPM World Conquest on suicide. Feedback/bugs/thoughts (Yes its possible)

I'm not speaking about size exactly, although yeah, I don't think stable WC should be possible. It's just that ''rise and fall'' cycle that is the main feature of the game and which is supposed to create ''fun'' late game (according to my understanding) is not actually forced by current mechanics. ...

Re: OPM World Conquest on suicide. Feedback/bugs/thoughts (Yes its possible)

If you buy the game, then play any way you want. That's a universal truth. However, let's use truth in advertising shockk's strategy. In MP, the other humans would band together and crush a player using this. The AI doesn't do that, because it's programmed to actually play the Legacy game. The game...
