Hello dear all forumers!

I thought maybe you'd like to participate in a NE tournament, and for that I need to see who would be motivated enough Razz
This is only to see if we would be enough to make something like that (and also, to have fun of course lol)

Looking forward to your answers!

Here's the list of the current players, with their ESO names that, signed up for the tournament (this list will be updated when you confirm your inscription on this thread):

ESO player names:
1. Roy1012
2. Yurashic
3. caveman909
4. Constantine
5. Sir_Claudius
6. Friedi4321
7. kurai_ken
8. EAGLEMUT
9. RoyalGuard1001
10. I.Austro.Hungaro (GameRanger pseudo)


Dont forget to confirm your inscription!

Our goal is to have at least 10 players, so be fast for subscribing! If we're 10, we'll be able to start the tournament!

Rules:

0. Winning: each game that is won makes 1 point. If both players of a game didn't make their match, 0 points to each will be attributed. (for the exact organisation of the tournament, see other Tournament thread).

1. Each civilization can only be played once: Like this, we can reward the players that can adapt to all (kind of) civilizations. All of the 21 civilizations are concerned (meaning you should install the new AI Hotfix, which can be found here). So be wise in your civs choices! Of course, Incas and Persia arent authorised civs.

2. Game rules: classic, supremacy

3. Maps allowed:

- Unknown map
- Great Plains (TAD version, of course)
- Yukon
- Texas
- Mongolia
- ACF High Plains Obs (ESOC)
- NE Malta
- NE Barbary Coast
- NE Rhine
- NE Sahara
- NE Shangri-La
- NE Black Forest


4.Record the game: just check the box before playing ^^

5.Post a description of your match/game: on the forum and with the recorded game (you can use common online file uploading services* and post the link on the forum). Add informations like which civs, which players, etc...
Also, I'll open a specific thread for it, so dont worry. Smile


And finally: HAVE FUN! Mr. Green

Hm hm hm, I couldn't be more divided right now towards this idea!

Generally I love the idea to see any NE tournament happening. Here are my concerns:
  • NE 2.1.7b is still notably imbalanced. I know there's still potential for exploits, laming etc. which could be a threat for the tournament's excitement.
  • The AI fix exists, but it isn't out yet. Although it is practically possible to create HCs for all civs for NE (by doing it in TAD), it will be anything but smooth and beneficial for the tourney's progress to tell every participant how to do it.
  • I'm honestly worried about finding sufficient resources for organization. Whenever I do NE-related stuff, I'm trying to push the progress in development so that the next NE version can be released earlier. Choosing map and civs pools, imagining rules, finding ways and people to visualize the schedules etc. would take away lots of my time from modding.
  • It's no secret I hate to see quite a lot of the overly archaic, exaggerated and historically misplaced content in NE. In my perspective, yet coupled with the balance deficits I don't think a tourney like this would be good promotion for NE. At least not in the eyes of a perfectionist like me.


And here the reasons why I think that a NE tournament prior to the next version could still be interesting and worth a shot:
  • A NE 2.1.7b tournament could resolve assumptions about the balance of certain civs and also help to find serious bugs we are yet unaware of.
  • Even with all the balance concerns I have it'd surely be a lot of fun to watch and play.
  • It would actually be the last chance to celebrate all the traditional NE content that will definitely vanish in future. Some of these things undoubtedly made NE to the great mod it has become.
  • When I do not look at this tournament from neither a promotional nor competitive perspective I can agree that making that tournament just for fun is a cool idea.
  • Considering the possibility that my role in this tournament would be minimal and that other people voluntarily take care for the whole organization of the tournament, it seems to be a doable thing.

I would be more than willing to organize the rules and contestants. It doesn't have to be big, only eight or sixteen people, and we can just do it for fun. People should already have created the vanilla civilizations. Either way I'd be willing to organize and make rules for it.

Aww but you dont have to do anything T, it would be organized by me or some other NE fans dont worry Mr. Green
IMO, making a tournament is the best way to have fun on a mod we all still love, although it has its flaws Razz

For the moment we're apparently nine. We could make smthing like that:

- 2 groups of 5 players.
- For each group, the 2 best players of each group would make semi finals (1.1 vs 2.2 and 1.2 vs 2.1).
- The 2 players that lose the semi finals would make a last match for the 3rd place.
- (Optional) Also, the third of each group would play against each other for the 4th place.

To make sure nobody's using too much of some opness flaws, we maybe could build some rules to make it more fair (f.ex., you cant play more than once the same civ). But this would need to be more deeply studied.

Did you vote?
Edit: apparently you just did Razz
So I'd say we keep it like that, and try one with 10 players. What do you guys think?
