The Order of Classical Wesnoth

Post by Tomsik »

Brothers and sisters! Sisters and brothers!
Sorrow fills my soul when I look at the MP server and see what it has become!
The time has come! The time when we put an end to the atrocities done by these scenario-loving freaks!

Herby I create the Order of Classical Wesnoth.
  • The goal of the Order is to establish an evergrowing group of individuals who like to play the almost forgotten 2/70.
  • The only requirement is willingness to play 2/70 or any other classical wesnoth match.
  • Each member may add to "OCW" to their nick, to create the means of recognition of members of the Order.
  • Every man and woman is a member of OCW, they just don't yet know about this.
EDIT:
Update:
  • Membership in the Order does not in any sense prevent one from playing scenarios, as long as they are not usually preffered to OCW-cetrified games.
  • Unbalanced and werid eras do not count as classical.
  • Isar cross does not act like usual Wesnoth enough to be considered OCW-certified

Come on, at least WC is 2/80, is that not good enough for you? Yeah, yeah it's still a scenario...but it's a campaign! It's different!
Take a breath.

Ehh... I's been a long time. I'll give Wesnoth a second chance with this OCW thing.

World Conquest is acceptable... its actually closest to classical scenarios and comp stomps, which is what most of us played when we first came on.
I suspect having one foot in the past is the best way to understand the present.

By the way, Tomsik, what's your reward for us giving our effort in helping your cause?

I just played another 2/70 (2 v 2) since we discussed your formation of this new order. You owe me something the next time we meet on the server. :D

You forgot to add:

* No custom eras, except those which are as well-balanced as Default. (Which, AFAIK, is currently none of them, but some may be at least moving in that direction.)

* Willingness to play on something other than Isar's. Not necessarily a commitment to *never* play Isar's - if you rule that out along with all the screwy scenario maps you're ruling out probably 90% of games - but at least some willingness to play reasonable sized maps like Loris or Blue Water, maybe even somewhat largish ones like PoD. (Or one on one, of course.)

With those additions, I support your agenda.

That's the main reason of creating the Order, the amount of scenarios and inane-settings games has gone wild long time ago.

Also, updated the original post a bit.

What happened to the "play only with friends" mantra? Isn't that a sure way to play MP with sane settings?

So you have to play sane games to meet people who like sane games, but in order to do that you need to know people who want to play sane games? I'm not quite sure if that works, Sir. :hmm:
