Playing against a 2 man team in a 3 person standard game

Postby 72o on Mon Aug 06, 2012 2:45 pm

These guys have systematically worked as a team to kill me in this game. They both attack only me each time.

Not enough for a report, but it's still pretty frustrating.

I think you share in the frustration many have with 3 player games (that is, if it isn't a 'team' that does this in all their 3 player games)...is that inevitably it will be lopsided at some point, or it will be stuck in a three-way stalemate, and no one likes to be on the wrong end of things. I was curious about the number of Public, Standard/Terminator games for each player number, to see if this sort of frustration would lead to less 3 player games, and it breaks down like this (keep in mind in 2007, 2 player and 7/8 player games were developed):

It seems for most, perhaps the driving forces behind the games are the speed (i.e. games with less players may lead players to think they'll finish faster / wait less for their own turn), in addition to their own chance of winning. There are probably other factors too. Anyways. Random interesting thoughts.

You might find in those three person games,that if you are the ranking player the others will take you down first(the points of course)then settle amongst themselves. You might want to check for multis though,usually when this happens thats what is going on. Thats why its super rare I start a 3 person game. And if I do its speed,harder for the buggers to switch users in one minute. ;)

I was ranking player, but I checked and my 2 opponents have not been in games together so it's unlikely they are multis or colluding regularly. But it's ridiculous when someone holds over 50% of the map and deploys in one stack and blasts me, only to have the other player attack only me on the following turn. No one with any sense would do that in a fair game, since it will cripple me and leave him to battle a single opponent who controls 75% or more of the map. You don't get points for second place.

2012-07-30 15:26:13 - 72o: gl
2012-08-01 16:26:41 - 72o: are you guys multis or what
2012-08-01 16:27:09 - 72o: this isn't a team game
2012-08-01 16:46:33 - 72o: every turn one or the other is breaking my bonuses while your own stay untouched
2012-08-01 17:51:57 - player 1: if i hadn't attacked you last round you would have become unstoppable
2012-08-02 09:07:26 - 72o: says the guy with half the globe who hasn't had his bonuses broken yet
2012-08-02 15:37:50 - 72o: green we're going to have to truce in order to rein blue back in
2012-08-02 20:50:24 - player 1: very funny
2012-08-03 09:59:59 - 72o: i was being serious, but i forgot you guys were on a team
2012-08-03 10:00:36 - 72o: how silly of me to think that green should try to prevent you from holding over half the map
2012-08-03 10:01:33 - 72o: especially since i went out of my way not to attack him at all
2012-08-03 12:22:57 - player 1: come on man its only a game - there are only two other people too attack
2012-08-03 12:38:59 - player 2: haha....I wasnt reading this until now. Chill out dude.
2012-08-04 09:14:12 - 72o: okay, it's been fun then i guess
2012-08-06 14:27:23 - 72o: trule amazing
2012-08-06 14:27:30 - 72o: *truly
2012-08-06 14:28:48 - 72o: good luck with your team game
2012-08-06 14:36:01 - player 2: shut up dude.
2012-08-06 14:40:50 - 72o: oooh, think of that one all by yourself?
2012-08-06 14:41:15 - 72o: at least blue will get second place, that's something, right?
2012-08-06 14:41:22 - 72o: oh wait, no, it's not
2012-08-06 14:41:46 - 72o: i guess there really is no other reason you both would constantly attack the same person in a 3 man game

this actually happens on occasion,foe them both,one of them got some points best you can do is make sure neither of them ever get the chance to take more of your points.

I just foed them. Just before I did so I caught player 2's response: that I am not good at playing Risk.
