      Real Name: Michael Montgomery
      Handle: mmontgmoery
      E-mail: (michael AT montgo DOT us)
      ICQ: 188976

      PBEMing since: 1980, with Peter Langson's Empmire
      PBEM skill level: Grandmaster.
      Average Turn Rate: 1/day, possibly 2/day (early game, easily 5-10 turns per day)
      Interested in TCP/IP? No
      Hours available:
      - For PBEM: Daily, 7-9 AM, and after 6 PM GMT-6
      Favorite Faction: University = Gaia = Hive > Morgan = Cycon = Drones

      Notes: I particularly like to play team games.

      Strongly prefer SMACX on Trancend
      Usual options:
      - Any victory
      - Do or die
      - Look first
      - No spoils of war
      - No unity survey
      - All other options off

      A multiplayer game should not include either of the alien factions. I usually prefer to ban Pirates as well.

      I generally prefer to ban atrocities unless there are more AI players than human players, simply because the weak penalty for atrocities in an all human game means that atrocities are used all the time.

      I also ban copters, because they are just a broken unit, and once they are available, they pretty much supercede all other units. It makes no sense for any unit to be able to attack 4 times in a single turn, then be able to withdraw to minimize counterattack.

                  Name rsfarrell

                  PBEMing since: 2003, technicially, but only played a few turn before school kicked my ass.
                  PBEM skill level: Nil.
                  Average Turn Rate: less than 24 hr.s, unless I'm out of town
                  Interested in TCP/IP: Yes.
                  Hours available: Varies. I work 4 days on, 4 off, 12hr shifts 2pm to 2am.
                  Favorite Faction: I love them all.

                  Notes: I hesitated to come back to PBEM because it's so slow-moving. Finally, though, I realized my love for this game wasn't going away, and the AI wasn't getting any less frustratingly stupid.

                                I would like to play with all victory conditions enabled, so i can win the game as fast as my faction allows it.
