King of the Hill - Team Game Sign Up

Post#1 » Sun Sep 30, 2012 7:24 am

Hello Folks,

I would like to introduce a new team game series to you. The game scenario is based on ][avoks "SLICE" game.
This could be the start of a challenger like series. The winning team is the "King of the Hill", and defends its position in the follow up game, as long as a new team wins the game and therefore becomes the new King. When it comes to race picking The King of the Hill always has the last pick - no choice!

Here are the Basic outlines and configurations:

The King of the Hill is a 2 x 4 team game.
The 4 teams are: Feds - Rebels. Lizards - Colonies. Fascists - Robots. Bird - Empire.

New and only victory conditions:
-- A team wins by capturing 300 planets prior turn 100
-- The team with most planets at turn 100 wins

Mods:
-- Teleport.
-- Zeus addon with all options deactivated except "Stargates"

Map: The map should be square with one team located in each corner - normal size 2000x2000 LY. The distance between teammates can be taken from The Slice also.

Shiplist: T-List, Engine Shield Bonus at 50%

Homworlds: Team HW close to one another (see SLICE). Extra Rich HW, Random Rich Planets. High Pop. High Money.

Config modifications:
-- The Empire has 15 free fighters per starbase instead of 5
-- Bird taxrate = 150%

Alliances: No team alliances allowed. Xenophobia!

Starbase @ HW with 2 ships.
TimHost 3.22.47.
Rank to Join: Teams can apply of the game in the forum. This game is "semi" private. Caligula and Fexer (Team Clueless)
decide who is allowed to join.


Player/Team Behavior:
We don't want to have any droppers nor "real live issue" folks in the game. Dropping is a no go! If one player drops the team has lost automatically! If there are reasons why one player has to drop, his partner has to take his race over.
There is no Q-player kicking in! If the remaining teammate doesn't want to take his mates race the team has lost immediately and the two races are "killraced"! Only seasoned teams/players wanted!!! :twisted:


Picking Races:
This just goes by first come first serve. Team "Clueless" (Caligula and Fexer) will have the last pick - which means they will simply take what's left.


Everyone who is interested please drop a note here on this thread.

hmmm. We shall see...
Wirklich reich ist, wer mehr | Truly rich is, who holds
Träume in seiner Seele hat, | more dreams in his soul
als die Realität zerstören kann.| than reality can destroy.

Come on folks, where are the echo cluster strategists? :idea:
No one out there with guts to compete against Caligula & Fexer?

We currently have three potential contenders... but not yet a team!
Donovan, Raven2, Fletch, BANE, Wyvern, Siberian Snake, Logain, Casebolt,....show us your team spirit! :-)

I would love to take up the glove with an ally, but we need to finish another game first.
Don't want to overcommit and underperform :)

For a setting like this, give it some time, other people also need to clear their other games a bit I would assume.

That's a great point, but I found I had more self-restraint than I ever imagined when Fexer posted about a team game, and emphasised having players who wouldn't drop, and then you piped in saying you would like to play.

However, i recall some dialogue between you and fexer about your mysterious dissapearance from '300'........ mmmmmmmmmm
Thank's for this hint Cardno. I will bear this matter in mind...
