  • [PBEM] Sign-up for first Civ4 PBEM: co-op teams

    PBEM was the best part of my later civ3 experience and this time i'd like to be in there from the beginning

    who'd like to join in a PBEM using the new cooperation team mode (i which you profit from the other player's wonders, resources, etc and share his/her line of sight)?

    i'm thinking of a 2vs2 game but could also be convinced to go for a 3vs3 game.

    condition for your participation: you'll be getting civ4 asap and you'll feel dedicated to play the turns efficiently

    so, who up?



    ps: that being said, i would not be surprised if some bugs exist that make the savegame unplayable soonafter. we saw this several times with new patches in PTW and C3C. i such a case we can always restart, if it's early enough



    edit: so far following have shown interest:
    * sabrewolf
    * Platypus Rex
    * MFCamillus
    * snoopy369
    * smellymummy
    * Mickeyj
    * jshelr
    * Lord Nuclear
    (* ChrisiusMaximus who will might join later)


    edit 2: my current proposal:
    based on snoopy's proposal

    TWO games

    GAME ONE: large pangaea
    team black (Snoopy369, Sabrewolf, Jshelr, MF Camillus, AI)
    vs
    team white (PlatyRex, LordNuclear, smellymummy, Mickeyj, AI)

    GAME TWO (uncertain)
    team yellow (Snoopy369, smellymummy)
    vs
    team red (sabrewolf, jshelr)
    vs
    team green (MF Camillus, Mickeyj)
    vs
    team gray (2 AI civs)


    GAME THREE (uncertain)
    some combination of:
    Lord Nuclear, PlatypusRes, mickeyj, ChrisiusMaximus
    + maybe 2 players for the 3rd game
    + maybe 2-3 AI player to even out the teams



    like this everybody should be at least once with every other player. players within teams can ofcourse be switched around, as well as the team names of course

    Why start the sign-up at this point?
    The same thing happened just before PTW was released, but the game never got started
    This space is empty... or is it?

      just in order to be the first

      edit: and iirc PTW-MP was virtually unplayable before the first patches. i'm hoping for better this time around

        Hehe ok

        I believe the PBEM feature worked ok out-of-the-box, the problem was that half of those who signed up forgot about it and was replaced after a long time of no-start so we finally could start, but quickly other problems emerged and the game ended shortly after

            with all these PBEM threads popping up i'd like to (bump) this one too

            coop mode is something new to civ4 so i'd surely like to go for that! 3vs3 sounds cool

            starting beginning of november after the americans have managed to beat their first deity level games and us europeans have got to install it and start our first SP game

                  lol ... apparently i wasn't the first, just the first to PM MarkG

                  I'll play if you'll take an American who's probably never going to beat Deity level

                    exactly

                    if i understood coop-mode correctly, you profit from your partner's stuff. you share resources and line-of-sight. it's a bit like some RTS games and this is a feature i quite liked.
