Civilization V (actually sign up for a game now)

Postby dota2reporter » Fri Aug 17, 2018 3:19 pm

started playing it a few weeks ago, got pretty decent I think.
got an idea that maybe there can be a ToS game hosted someday if we have enough people (4 is probably enough though), probably with random civs if there are a lot of people because choosing would be too complicated

If you want to participate, just post in this thread
we can discuss the rules and time of the game at the same time

People who signed up:
Me
Nopingout
Kmenx

Also it's probably borderline impossible to host because you'll need to generate map, random resources, calculate how many spaces on the map units can move, calculate productivity etc and you'll also have to have the entire list of buildings that can be made and how much productivity you need for them not to mention natural wonders and the tech tree

And that's just the tip of the iceberg, you'll have to add ancient ruins for when you get the archaeologist tech and also do actions between players so they only see the area they have explored. You also have to manage negotiations between players and play as citystates and barbarians.

It'd also take a year or so to complete probably

Each player gets 3 civs to pick from, still randomly picked, no dupes
Ban venice because it's hilariously unplayable in multiplayer civ (Picking venice basically instantly loses you the game)

I'm from the era where you could still gift people the complete edition for $12.50 usd when it was on sale
The people im used to playing with have that so I'm used to it.
The only DLC I'd call mandatory to have if you want to play multiplayer is Brave New World, if that helps.

Fair. The overpowered ones could also be banned (most notably Babylon), but that can be unfun for people who like playing them without really realizing how strong they are.

I have a lot of free time on saturday and sunday, so decided that people can sign up now
the game settings will be:
4-6 people
strategic balance
low sea level
pangea
quick walk, quick fight and timer


after people sign up, we can discuss the time
