  • Customizer

    middle earth is round 5

    we are on round 4, which is great war


  • 2017 '16 '15 '12

    right, was the last one



  • How are air units supposed to get out of North America? Am I missing something?


  • Customizer

    i think they can not, and you must build them in the “usa declares war” territory….

    i’ve never played the map before, so i’m probably not the best reference



  • indeed, making air in usa is useless,

    my suggestion is that u play ur noob card and ask them to be edited into whatever u agree on, other units or money.

    im sure if ur opponent is fair he wont deny

  • Aircraft carriers are not available?



  • @Funcioneta:

    Aircraft carriers are not available?

    Not in WWI, I believe those were first built in the late 1920’s.



  • @ice:

    Well actually I didn’t build any yet, that’s why I asked.

    I just learned something VERY important for Great War

    Cairo and Istanbul are CANALS!!!

    sz66 and sz67 connect if you hold cairo

    and

    sz62 and sz63 connect if you hold istanbul

    AND they ALWAYS connect for air units (just like normal maps)

    (i’ll add that to the game notes and make a little symbol on the map for it… but until next version you won’t see it, so just remember this!)



  • BotA - r3 - 270BC - SantaClaus vs. kabloom,
    SantaClaus is the winner.
    thank you for the game.

    I’d be interested in looking at this game. Where is it posted?

    By the way, apparently several people don’t realize that there is a connection between Istanbul and the Aegean Sea. There have been at least two games (including my own) where Istanbul was left undefended, but Britain didn’t bother to take it.

    Finally, after 31 Rounds of intense fighting, after the last Russian troops were shattered together with the majority of Sir Lawrence Expeditionary Corps, with Paris being surrounded by Austrians and a breaktrough in the back of the Western Front, with Ottomans expeditionary forces on their way to reinforce Austrians, with Germany gaining the offensive on the Western Front and the Med more or less still in CPs hands, the Supreme Headquarter of Allied Forces (Wassmuss) asked for a immediate cease fire. The Combined Imperial Staff (wirkey) has given order to hold positions and treat all enemy personal with respect and according to the Geneva Conventions. With beginning of the 20th hour of the 27th day of the first month, there will be no more fighting.

    MIR, seeing as how you guys didn’t make it past the first round of turns, (noll didn’t even play at all), I am going to try to get you a new opponent.

    Unless we are unable to find you an opponent for Great War, I can not give you a “win” just yet.

    Sorry if you are a little disappointed.  Whole point is to get people playing the maps after all.

    It’s really not fair of you to arbitrarily deprive me of a win.

    A forfeit is a forfeit, whether it’s in the first round or the thirty-first.

    MIR, throughout this entire tournament, whenever someone has dropped out or not started a game, I have switched their opponents around.
    Almost all tournaments have people drop, especially as they realize what they have committed themselves to.  Making it to the end of the tourney with 50% of people still here will be considered a success.

    You can go back through this thread to find that from the beginning I have been forced to switch opponents around as people dropped or did not start.

    I also quote myself from earlier in this thead:
    @Veqryn:

    I should add this to the rules, although it is technically covered by point 1.

    I am very very much against giving people “byes” in this tournament.

    If you opponent never shows up, or you never make it past round 1, then I do plan to if at all possible, give you a new opponent.

    The whole point of the tournament is to get people playing these different maps.  If you skip a round, that means you’ve skipped a map, and that makes me incredibly sad.

    The fact that you could win a little something is a nice bonus, but the real incentive is the fun you will have playing on all these different boards.

    So ya, if it is possible, I will find a new opponent for anyone who’s opponent is not playing.

    Most people have not yet started their Round 4 games yet, so there is bound to be 1 other person who is missing an opponent.  Don’t worry, I’ll find you an opponent real soon.



  • I’ve taken a look at the Middle Earth map for the first time, and I’m quite impatient to play it now.
