Oh well...

Alex, we have who we have. Is it not just as important for us to compete well no matter what the outcome? (I don't believe that either :wink: )

It is a problem with the new installation on my laptop - it has me marked down as a trial player only.

Returned from Tallinn yesterday and all working fine on my home PC.

Games have started - very excited (but feeling very rusty!)

That's strange. Are you sure that you are using the same account on the laptop?

Update on Trinity - Turn 7 for my games vs Bambr...
initial encounters made - with both sides have lost a few leviathans..... now East and West are regrouping to lick their wounds and prepare for the next front.
funny enough - I started in the West side of the map for Both games.... and Bambr is in the East.... very fitting.

Morn: any update on your predictions?
Anyone else want to comment?
I am loving these games - Bambr has improved greatly in the last year while I was away - and he is making me work very hard - still not sure of the outcomes.





I have looked into it again. Well Alex, I'm pretty sure of the outcomes: Both players win their games with red. To my mind there is no way you can win your game with green - not even a draw. If you look at the statistics and the layout you can see that Bambr is going to have a lot more income. Not to mention that he is going to control the complete south of the map in turns to come. I don't believe in miracles, sorry.

To some other games:
Rusty or not I'm very confident that Rocklizard is going to win both of his games. The same with storm440's games.

buKTOP has challenged me to a game on sea swiss with parameters that are OK with me. He is a high ranking east player--#24 with over 1000 wins. I am willing to accept this challenge as a east/west tournament game so the east will have one more chance to win a game with me--since i will be ending both of my games with Ilya today and taking those victories--hollow or not, 22 days is long enough to wait.

If the east team would prefer that i play one of the existing team members instead of buKTop that is also OK with me--just have them send me a challenge on sea swiss.

I have an even better deal for the east team. If you have a new opponent for me to play one game with--or the buKTop game--I will only finish the game with ilya that i am in turn 4 (my red game) and which i have absolutely no doubt of victory. I will allow the other game that has only one move played to be taken off of the server as if it were never played---NOT A DRAW--just completely removed with no points given or taken away. Le_roy--Hugo-Jedi, someone let me know what route the east team would prefer.

since you were on holiday I will still honor my offer. If you have a new opponent for me that will play one random side game on sea swiss --preferably someone that i have not played before--you can take game #394172 off of the server and i will play that new game as my 2nd turny game--or i can accept the challenge from buKTop as a turny game--or we can leave things as they are--just get back to me one way or the other.

On 2nd thought, just leave things as they are--4 points for the west. I have attempted to contact ilya, others from the east have attempted to contact him, he has been on the server at the same time I have been in the last 3 weeks and could have either played a turn or contacted me about giving more time. From what i can see, he is no longer interested in playing so that is a problem for the east, not for me. There are too many other stressful things in my life at the present for me to worry about playing make-up tournament games.

We can play but as Le_Roy has stated, it will not be a east/west tournament game. I will send you a challenge in a few days.

It seems to me the East is taking delight in showing us how many powerfull they are...
But i am not sure of the validity of the test....
after this is all over.... I would not mind a different kind of test of skill - without random assignments.

True team competition should involve team strategy and team captains.....

East and West again will both have teams.......
BUT - only limited number of members per team..... (Can I suggest 5 or 7)

THEN - Each side picks a team captain (Morn and Aghepu?)

Team captain agree on 5 (or 7) different planets to fight on. (East choses 1, then west choses 2, then east choses 2, then west choses 1, then east choses the last one.

Team Captain choose their teams from those willing to play - (they can even have team trials to determine who should play if they can't decide).

Team Captains then assign a player to each map - one player at a time... so West Captain assign a player to Map1 - then the East Captain chooses who will fight that player.... - but remember - each player can only be picked for 1 map. (2 matches per map - RED and GREEN for each player).

Then the East Captain chooses a player for Map2 - and the West Captain Chooses who will fight that player.
and so on.....

This way people like Storm440 dont have to play people who dont even want to play and not in the top 100.
This way - the best of the best are playing (Top 10 not 34 people).

Any comments / improvements are welcome.
