well ok let me restart.

Its a good idea, though we're just pushing the limit on number of people per game. People can then argue for quintuples or 5 double team games. I also don't think that the time it would take to play a game would be appealing. i started a sequential 8 player game 3 or 4 days ago and it wasn't until late yesterday when i was able to take my first turn.

Theory's good, but i don't think it'll be popular among the fanbase

hey, it was just a thought thrown out for discussion... I don't play teams OR games with more than 4 players (most the time, I do want to try a quad game though...) I don't want, it was just an idea.

I will no longer be using this thread, so you don't need to direct posts at me.

The problem with more players is that the colours get more confusing.

Increase to 12 players. [Poll added - JoshyBoy][Submitted]

Postby Joodoo on Sun May 25, 2008 2:29 am

It has been sugested it would it take a bunch of coding to do.


Concise description:
  • add a couple more options to the max # of players allowed

Specifics:
  • I'd like to see 12 and it works with all the current game types, 12 singles, 6 doubles teams, 4 triples teams, 3 quad teams.
  • increments would be fine.
  • 9
  • 10
  • send me money
  • Here's 12 distinct colours with different letters for "add color codes"
    red r
    green g
    blue b
    yellow y
    pink p
    cyan c
    orange o
    silver s
    maroon m
    lime l
    violet v
    drab d

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
    You can do more than two team triples and quad games.
    Might make some cool tourneys also.

I think one of the new maps (New World) has 9 starting positions so 9 players might be good for that one. Can't see it working for the smaller maps though.

Doodle Earth with 9 players wouldbe 2 players each
Doodle Earth with 10 players 1 territory each and 8 nuetrals cool.
But you have got to keep in minf the age of might maps have 8 starting places.

Before you could even consider this, you'd have to find color codes that are unique and different enough from the current ones we have.

I'm also afraid that 9 and 10 player games...on maps, would be simply be down to the luck of who gets to go first.

I've often wondered why we didn't have 9 player games when we expanded to 7 and 8, to allow three triples teams...

I think 10 player games would be pushing it though.
