Big Powers MP Game - NO MODS PLEASE

Post by 13obo » Wed Aug 21, 2019 10:17 am

Hi All,

Seeing as multiplayer games can be quite fun, should we set up a new one with big powers? I propose to play with a 24h turn time limit and AI difficulty at experienced. Diplomacy is highly encouraged both privately or publically. Roleplaying your nation's leader such as an aggressive tyrant, greedy senate, scheming king, disunited council, dumb tribal chief, etc. is also very much desired!

First and foremost, I very politely ask ... PLEASE DO NOT JOIN IF YOU HAVE ENABLED MODS. Any enabled mod, no matter what it does, creates an error message at the start of every turn in a multiplayer game, and causes players to leave due to suspicion there may be "cheating" involved. The game will probably end up being abandoned if players with mods join, so everyone will end up wasting their time.

Now that has been covered, we need the following participants to be filled at a bare minimum for a fun game:

Tier 1:
Antigonids - mst007
Seleucids - typhoon
Ptolemaic Egypt - devoncop
Lysimachos - 13obo
Macedon - desertedfox
Rome - ReneTS
Carthage - SteveLohr

Tier 2/3:
Arverni - sval062
Iberians - Morbio
Dacia - PJL1973
Mauriya -
Arabia - MARVIN_THE_ARVN
Bactria - Geffalrus
Epirus - SpeedyCM

Please express your interest in this topic- I will edit this post as we go, and also use it as a basis to send the game password to the participants via forum mail. I will take Lysimachos for the laughs, but can change if needed depending on participation.

Putting you down for your first choice (Carthage). Let me know if you reconsider.

I wouldn't have thought it could be any other way. Added! I'll stop confirming that I've added people after this one...

Done, done, and done! Seems like all tier 1 nations are taken. Now for the smaller, but often even more fun ones:

Iberians
Dacia
Mauriya
Judea/Arabia
Bactria

If anyone feels like taking another nation apart from those on the list, please say so. The tier 2/3 ones I picked are reasonably powerful with sufficient room to grow at the start without infringing on the bigger powers, but after all, the more players we have, the more fun there will be!

Let's wait for a few days and see how many of the other nations from the initial list get taken. When the game is full (or deemed to be), I'll set it up and send a forum mail with the password to all participants, so please watch the forums!

Also, feel free to start setting up your private/public cooperations/alliances/secret pacts/agreements to carve up your neighbour/etc.

Hey speedyCM, glad you're keen to join! If your mind is very set on Epirus, I'll put you down as them.

However! I would caution you in taking them and urge you to reconsider your choice. We have a fresh example from another multiplayer game ( https://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewto ... 34&t=93262 ), where the initially more powerful Macedonia wiped out Epirus in the opening 5 turns because of a dispute on splitting Greece. You can read the topic (last 2-3 pages of it) to see the dispute.

The problem with Epirus is they are very squeezed in terms of ways for expansion (their objectives are in Rome/Greece/Macedonia), and will inevitably clash with their more powerful neighbours very likely leading to their downfall.

However, if you are still set on Epirus, or you think you can secure the help of someone, you can have them!

Glad you could join us, former king of Epirus! Added you for Iberians and added speedyCM for Epirus since he/she did not answer.

Spots for Mauriya, Judea/Arabia, and Bactria left (or any other you may want to go as).
