  • Active Player Profiles

    I thought that I could maintain a list here of player profiles if people want to PM me their information. It would give newbies a sense of the community and let people like me who have only been around a short time be able to stop sending e-mails to my Pactmates asking "What's this guy like?"

    It might also encourage newbies to sign up with the basic info and start the game seeking process.

    If you have interest, and want to be listed, PM me with:

    (to be posted as name AT domain DOT com)

    PBEM skill level: *

    Favorite Faction:

    I'm open to suggestions of additional information to include, or anything at all.

    * (I need some feedback here. Newbie, experienced, veteran? Someone who can cream the AI at Transcend might get whipped by a not-very-skilled PBEMer. Ideas from long time PBEMers for a way to rank people would be appreciated)

      Learn to overcome the crass demands of flesh and bone, for they warp the matrix through which we perceive the world. Extend your awareness outward, beyond the self of body, to embrace the self of group and the self of humanity. The goals of the group and the greater race are transcendant, and to embrace them is to acheive enlightenment.

            I hope so too. Thanks for the topping, Solver. Once there are a few more I'll experiment with a table to put all the info in the first posts.

              • Unless coerced, prefer playing at Transcend level
              • Don't mind playing in games with odd factions or alpha(x).txt tweaks

                    PBEM skill level: newbie
                    Average Turn Rate: once a day, a little more on weekends
                    Interested in TCP/IP? Need the small daily routine as opposed to a long online one. Maybe at X-mas. That's when I'm allowed to be locked away for 3 or so days straight.
                    Hours available: Would love 6-8 p.m. EST. Hours are wild right now. Still.. one-a-day.
                    Favorite Faction: Gaian (SMAC)
                    Notes: Play CPU quite handily. In 'transcend' no one is interested in exchanging tech. Er..oh.. thats because I choose 'aggressive' mode. Love the tech. Gotta have the tech. Looking for new pbem as of this post.

                      PBEM skill level: decent (Morgan), lousy (all others)
                      Average Turn Rate: one turn per day, more on weekends
                      Interested in TCP/IP: no time
                      Hours available: GMT+1 mornings and evenings are generally good, lots of exceptions to this rule though in both ways
                      Favorite Faction: Morgan. Haven't tried others much.

                      - Tried PKs for the first time in a PBEM
                      - Often start playing immediately when I'm in front of the computer and get a PBEM email

                        PBEM skill level: Apparently good, and if one game is any evidence, about as good as Flubber. I crush Transcend AIs, FWIW.
                        Average Turn Rate: Less than 1 day typical turnaround, but with interruptions such as holidays or moving
                        Interested in TCP/IP? Sometimes; these take all day though
                        Hours available: For TCP/IP, weekends only, ~1300-0200. For PBEM responses, about 1100 and 2200-0200 during the week.
                        Favorite Faction: Most of them. I can't stand fungboy though, and the aliens bore me.
                        Notes: I like banter and aggressive play, and expect to get the same back. I also tend to do random, arbitrary, or otherwise confusing things in and out of game.

                          PBEM skill level: Experienced (Builders); Pathetic (Momentum)
                          Average Turn Rate: 1 turn per game per day when healthy
                          Interested in TCP/IP: Not currently
                          Favorite Faction: University. PK's, Angels and Morgan get also-rans.

                          • Can sub-MY2200 Transcend on Huge in SP with my beloved Uni, for what little it's worth in MP
                          • Like Googlie, primarily a Builder, though I'm often forced into Hybrid by the simple fact of playing more aggressive humans in MP - pathetic as a Momentum player, can't help but use my same old and tired builder strategies with those factions
                          • Prefer playing at Transcend level, and with experienced opponents
                          • Have been in-active for some time, and would appreciate a few "regular" games to get me back into the swing of things

                            Am up for anything basically

                            Always wanted to play a game in which the entire surface of the world is completely covered with xenofungus
