-= Pitboss Host Server =-

WPC Pitboss Server-Artemis

artemis.weplayciv.com:2062

Once a game has been set up for you, you can connect to it in Civ4 by going to Multiplayer > Direct IP Connection and by using artemis.weplayciv.com:20XX as the network address, where 20XX is a port number unique to your game that the admins will provide you with.

 

 

Once the game is going, each team will be allowed to post team discussion things, pictures, etc in a "private thread". What does that mean? That the thread is Open to all EXCEPT for your opponents. This is using the Honor System to keep them from peeking into your teams deep dark secrets... BUT, anyone who is NOT in the game can take a look and even kibitz (but please kibitz knowing that you might let something slip that you had read in one of the other teams threads). Also, Once a team is eliminated, they can enter an opponents thread but their opponent can not enter theirs for a number of turn after elimination. And posts in threads will be such that they won't have to be edited afterwards, like in some DG subforums, but also keeping in mind the entertainment of the people who aren't playing.

 

Team Threads will be designated as such:

[ACtA-TT] whatever naming convention you want

as I'm not familiar with what is required to host, and only (at this time) even have one computer to even play the game with, I don't think (or know) even if I could even attempt to host the game. Plus it might be a conflict of interest, hosting (shows how much I know about PTB) might leave me open for possible conflict of interest (saying it nicely...). So, for right now, no known hosts, just getting the game together, but for right now, that's all I'm worried about....

 

Anyways, Beta's in...

I'm in. Haven't played a team game in a long time.

 

I can't host by the way. Maybe you could ask Donald if he can host another game. He is hosting the WPC diplogame right now, but I know that in the past Beta has hosted some simultaneously and Robert Plomp has done the same.

Kewl... early dayz, early dayz.... build the game, the host will come... hehe silly me...

 

seriously, I think that Donals23 would be great, IF he COULD host another, but for right now, I'm just interested in getting the game together...If I have to work at building the 'puter myself to get this game hosted, them it might be a while, but it will get going....i.e. I'm not worried about it at this time....

And remember, this is a team game, so think hard on that...

Well, it doesn't really matter to me who I am paired up with. Except con because he is lazy and he sucks. :p

BTW, the usual gaming crew over here consists of (in no particular order):

 

me

Beta

Nugog

RobWorham

Zoid

Kloreep

UnO

Wittlich

Fed1943

Donald23

Strudo76

Harovan (though last I heard he had lost interest in playing)

Andydog

Paolis

and a couple people I don't know very well who are in a game I'm not playing.

 

Several of those will probably join a new game here, and maybe some of the Apolytoners I lured over here for the WPC diplogame will join (but who knows).

Oh...and we'll need a "modification" of the PTB War rules with team play....maybe...don't know if already has been covered or not....

Oh, and if UnO doesn't want to play, he's still welcome to post any stories that he has the muse hit him with.

And One rule that I will INSIST ON.....

 

That we will be allowed to post things about our team game in threads that will be imperious to the opposition....i.e. that I and my partner can post in a "private" thread and our opponents WON'T PEEK. Done that before over at MZO and worked great. Just have to work it on the honor system...

 

but was entertaining to those who didn't play, too

I hadn't planned on starting new games anytime soon, but a team game sounds fun... I may have to join if this gets started. :p

Hehe, at first I thought you meant things along the lines of "fetch me some gold, you backwards upstarts!"

Nope, you remember that duel team game that Con and I had against UnO and Arrian? We had separate threads for out planning and it was off limits to the other side. Only thing that kept us and them from violating that was our word. And we kept it, too.....

I'm up for another CivIV game, but I'd rather we played it as a civ each, or paired up if people so wish (to lessen the burden) or have a mixture. I'm not a huge fan of mods so I'd rather not, but will go with the flow on this point.

 

A little birdy told me they may be able to host a pitboss game soon, but I'll let them announce it if it comes to fruition.

 

I'd rather kickoff was after Xmas, but I'll be ready and willing whenever you want to get things going.

 

Lastly, I'd rather this was WPC only if at all possible...... :)

I think we're all honourable and relaxed enough here at WPC to make this work. Another reason I'd like it WPC only......

True, .....but....we DO need a bit more new blood if we're to avoid the fate of MZO. See recent thread in Community Forum about this...

I'm in! I'd rather play a solo game, but am willing to pair up if needs be. I can see that it would make for a more interesting team 'private' thread....... ;)

In Team play, you each play a DIFFERENT Civ, but your permanently allied with your teammate. All research is automatically cooperative. Guess you haven't played team games before...
