Hey doc, (you'll see that we tend to use the first 2 or 3 letters or such as a chat name brev) the first thing we need to do is get you into some games. I don't know if you've read the other threads here but the first thing that you should do is read the manifesto. Basically it's the strategy that we use. The short of it is, we tend to play trips and quads in the Team with No Name. That's the name of the little group that got this going. The strategy is that we play as a team, not as individuals.
When you first begin, we expect you to study the map when it's your turn with an eye as to which if any opponents might be a choice for elimination, what bonuses the opponents have and what it will take to break them, And what bonuses we might be able to take. Then you need to write your plan in chat and pm all your teammates for input before you move. Don't miss a turn waiting for us but try to wait till at least 2 of us have commented on your plans. If you really believe that your plan's better than our suggested move, convince us why. Our method works so we expect you to follow it.
After you've attacked, you'll be expected to fort as many as possible to the next player up. Don't make yourself weak enough to be eliminated but try to move as many as you can to the player who goes after you. Any units you have that you can't fort to the next player should be forted to whichever teammate you can. With all players doing this, everyone will have the most armies at the beginning of their turn since the majority of the units will be forted to the next player. The mass moves like a pig through a snake so we want you to give a pig count each turn starting with the number of troops the player after you has, and ending with yours. The first number should always be the largest and the last the smallest.
Once you've demonstrated your superior skills, then you'll be able to follow your own plan without any input. But we tend to give suggestions to the next player up and batting about ideas as to where we should go next, take break, eliminate and we want your advice. If you lay out good plans, not just for you but for us all as a team, that will demonstrate how skilled you are just as much or more than your actual playing, especially since you will mainly just be doing as we advise at first.
I'll set up some games for you and send invites. But to do this I'll need to go viewtopic.php?f=667&t=159250&p=3492573#p3492573
and ask for players. This will be where you post requests for games. Once I have the names of players, I'll set up the games and send the invites so that we can be sure to have the team as we want it then let some opponents sign up. We are setting up our games as public games (except for the war going on now, future wars and tournaments) so that we can make points and rank. When we were just playing amongst ourselves we were just trading them back and forth.
Of course I can try setting one up without asking by just sending the invitations. Here goes.
