finding other players

Post by Celeborn » Tue Feb 23, 2021 3:50 pm

I am curious to hear how others think about finding other players. I am becoming less inclined to just start a game that is "open" as I have had some bad experiences with players who just abandon a game when the outcome is still in doubt, yet I also like making new friends and occasionally getting whipped by strangers. I have also noticed that many MP games require passwords--suggesting an invitation list--yet languish on the "board" for weeks or longer which makes no sense if the player who set it up already had opponents in mind.

A sure-fire way is to keep checking this board for when Erik asks for volunteers to test out his new PvP scenarios.
Also check all the Parriego posts here - there's a group that plays those games regularly.
You could post on this multiplayer forum and describe what you are interested in and maybe get some responses that way.
Maybe check the Steam site and see if they have anything. I did a quick check and didn't see anything relevant, but maybe I missed it.
I don't do much with PvP any more, just help Erik and get my monthly ass-whipping from Pinkelephantis.

I too an wary of taking on random players, because almost all of them are abandoned, and I regret all the time wasted.

I will compete with you Celeborn if you like. Just PM me on any scenarios you are interested in and we can get a game going for sure.

Seems like even a lot of the more reliable, veteran players aren't doing their turns so quickly these days. Wonder if the game isn't starting to reach the end of its lifespan?

If I were a reliable veteran I would be concerned that my Yankee allies in Market-Garden are annoyed at how long I am taking :-)

Of the ten games I've got going, you're the one holding things up in precisely zero of them so no concerns there :D I admit I take my turns less quickly if I'm losing than I do if I'm winning, but once a day is about as bad as it gets. Once every two days at worst.
