What you're refering to is what we used to call a Blitz game.Ahasver wrote:Just an idea for a new game: hosting every 30 minutes
this could be a weekend game, starting some saturday ending at sunday, depending on the world-time for the players.
30 minutes, no time for long emailing for partnerships, just fast decisions, no sleep, a box of beer and the feeling of playing "online".
24 hours means 48 turns, could be done, eh ?
Yeah you're referring to Kero's Blitz type game.B A N E wrote:Blitz Game?

Ya'll have fun if you pull it off.
If I ever get a weekend w/o kids and wife, I would be up for a

RAW was a mod put out by Dan & Dave that never caught on. It stands for Rapid Action Warfare. I've got a copy of it in the downloads area that you can grab if you like and take a look at the docs. Here's what the description says about it.Sinner wrote:Greetings All
I am interested in a Blitz game as you call it i have not played in one before but i am willing to give it a shot.
Enemy #1 mentioned a RAW game could you please explain RAW to a simple minded folk such as myself.
The next question what set up would it be.(a No frills,with or W/O addons)
What type of map would we be playing on.
Whichever the setup i'm keen and i reckin a few more would be to.
Actually, the way this works is we all site down, get the instant messengers going and make sure everyone has a few hours to spare.Sinner wrote:Hi all
Just reading the idea of the Blitz Game, Maybe instead of doing 30 min turns to start with then regular timings why not have a few days of 3-4 turns a nite Prior to weekend show down, at least that way you have a bit of a backing then hit the 30 min turn on a weekend.
If we do it starting turn 1 on the weekend it will take half the day to gather a fighting force,where as if we have a lead up time then the weekends get in and get killing or in my case probly being killed.
Just a thought.
