Re: The Grand Tag! 2v2 Tournament - 4th edition (Sign up now

Greetings fellow wesnothians! It's great to see that the TGT lives on even if its original admins and creators all but departed from the lands of living and are rumored to have traided their wesnoth-glory for the dark gifts real life has to offer. However Dauntless and me, perceiving Dunno's call, d...

Re: 2v2 conversation

It looks like you didnt read TBS about TGT clash games vs tentacles: He didnt get too much fun when his army was reduced to 3 units and his gold was negative and he knew he had no longer anything to do during game. A quote from my "unpublished" response to TBS: On the subjective level I can say, th...

Re: 2v2 conversation

I wrote a lengthy answer on TBS post, but i think i'll refrain from posting it (to TBS's great joy :P) and come straight to the point. If base income were increased to +4 and villages remained unchanged, this would nullify the advantage of "loyal army" up to 4 units (excluding level 2 & 3 units). Th...

Re: 2v2 conversation

With loyal army tactic, amount of gold a team collects every turn related to units have in field becomed cheated, and overrides upkeep rule proposal. Do you think 2v2 map sizes and number of villages were designed for amount of units loya army tactic can deploy on battlefield? Nah, i don't think no...

Re: 2v2 conversation

I agree with TBS, making one leader kill a winning condition sounds a bit too harsh, and would robe us quite a few decent games while trying to adress some potential threat (that probably wouldn't be fixed by this solution either). That game that TBS mentioned was simply one of the most epic games i...

Re: The Grand Tag! 2v2 Tournament - 3rd Edition!

Sorry Rigor, i think we will stick to mainline maps for the time being. Which doesn't mean ofc you can't set-up a KoTF-kind of a tournament or something... hm, now that I think of it, it might be a good idea to give someone responsible the power to choose teams that can participate and teams that go...

Re: The Grand Tag! 2v2 Tournament - 3rd Edition!

So basically, we have some kind of rules and ranks, but TGT admins can always overrule them? 8) I think we should rebuild all the current rules basing on this principle!

Re: 2v2 conversation

To clarify the TGT stance on random ToD. Before launching the 1st Edition, Faello and me were concerned that random ToD (which was somewhat of a novelty back then) may lead to some match-ups being more unbalanced than they were with fixed ToD. In order to test this theory, we made some playthroughs ...

Re: The Grand Tag! 2v2 Tournament - 3rd Edition!

I'm not sure if the nani's save from our final game contains the chat at the end of it but there was a good discussion regarding the "loyal army" then. It's not there. And i wasn't there during the last rounds of the game either. Per se i am not opposed to this idea (i'm not it's supporter either),...

Re: The Grand Tag! 2v2 Tournament - 3rd Edition!

Also let's remember that even though the maps can be made better they are not broken. I don't think any team would say "we lost that game because of a map imbalance". So lets avoid over the top hyperbole and keep the conversation respectable. I wouldn't say map imbalances are the main problem of 2v...

Re: The Grand Tag! 2v2 Tournament - 3rd Edition!

Huh, 18 hours for 20 turns? Is this a play-by-email game? i was too sleepy to write a motivational post when the game was finished, so it was the first thing i did the next day :P @TBS: alas the server-replay is corrupted because of the reload... could you post a replay made from your own save?
