Anyone for a game?

Post here to arrange or discuss multiplayer games. Remember when planning a game to state the time the lobby will be open, the time the game will start and the time zone you are in and if you are going to play through Gamespy or direct IP address.

In my opinion, the best muliplayer games are ones in which there are circa twice as many regions as players and ALL the regions start out real weak.

This makes it hard for the vets who rush to combat to be as effective, and dominate the other players as fast as they can when they have a region that needs little to no work .

Ok, I went through the maps that were mentioned. The mideast has only about five playable regions, so if we have more players than that it won't be an option. Indomalaysia's countries are too small in my opinion, and it would take forever to build up a decent army. Africa looks like a pretty good map, since most regions (except south africa) are pretty equal and there are about a dozen of them or so. And the world war maps are <i>way</i> too big for MP unless we want to play 30 hours or so :wink: . My other suggestions would be South America and India-Pakistan. We'll probably figure it out in the game.

I'm going to randomly set the game for December 1st (a Saturday) at noon. It is of course flexible. If you want it at some other time, suggest something!

If I am not mistaken, Eastern Time Zone is GMT -5. So 1200 EST is 1700 GMT.

Feltan is right about the time zone. We'll decide the scenario once we see how many are playing, but most likely it will be Africa. I looked at all the regions, and they are surprisingly well-balanced (with the exception of South Africa).

The game will be an IP game, with the address being 137.99.145.141. I'll open the lobby fifteen minutes before 12, and we'll wait fifteen minutes after that before starting, so that no one gets left out. I suspect the game will take 4-5 hours, and if it looks like it'll go longer we can always save it and come back to it later.
