New Games

Post#1 » Sun May 18, 2008 8:08 am

Morning everyone.

I was originally going to post new games this weekend but was down for most of the last 48 hours (my weekend) with the flu. I did manage to get the older games removed and players scores / rankings updated appropriately.

Sometime this evening I'll start adding in some new games. At this time, if anyone has any suggestions for a game, using a certain mod, scenario, etc... this is your chance to let me know.
Regards,
][avok

How about a fairly simple variation on the No Frills game? Just add four things:
1. Blank.exe
2. Custom map
3. Run the host 3 times a week until turn 100 and then drop it to 2 times.
4. Play until there are no more than three players left... preferably to the last man standing.

This looks good, but add the blank.exe so that players will not be dropping out as soon as they think that the outcome is predictable.
