Official Strategy Guides Project Launching

Postby AndyDufresne on Mon Jun 07, 2010 10:01 am

Ahoy Conquer Club Members!

Strategy is paramount on Conquer Club, no matter what you intensity-cube-obsessors proclaim ;). So in hopes of improving strategy for both new and old Community members alike, and as a part of our ongoing 'Club betterment', we are rebooting our Official Strategy Guides Project. The overarching goal of this project is provide our Community with some basic strategy information for the many maps we have on Conquer Club. It's a large undertaking, but certainly one that is well worth it. So all this sounds nifty, right? But 'where do I come in', you're asking? Listen up.

We are looking for some Community members that are well versed in a variety of gameplay and map settings to be our 'Strategy Guide Contributors.' You, the Community, will be writing the Official Guides for our maps---following a standardized process of input, discussion, critique, and review before final publishing. One 'Strategy Guide Contributor' will be the 'author' of each Strategy Guide, and much like the production of a map in the Map Foundry, through discussion the author will produce a Strategy Guide by working on their own and listening to the suggestions and advice of other Strategy Guide Contributors. So as a Strategy Guide Contributor, you should expect to help others with their guides, so they can return the favor and help you! It's all about cooperation and teamwork. All Strategy Guides completed in this Project will be 'published' in our Official Guides Forum, with credit given to the author.

To add further incentive, we will also be awarding
General Contribution Medals.
    For every 1 Strategy Guides produced and published by an author, the author receives 1 General Contribution. So if you produce and publish 4 guides you will earn 4 General Contribution Medals detailing your Strategy Guide Contributions.
Who wouldn't want one or more General Contribution Medals decorating their medal profile? :D
Image

And even if you aren't interested in writing your own guide, you are still welcome to help the development of all the other guides. If we have any outstanding contributors who do not create any guides of their own, we may recognize these contributions as well later in the process. So hope is out there for those Contributors as well!

If you are interested in joining and participating in this project, please send a PM following this form to master fenrir:


Subject: Strategy Guide Project

In the Body of your PM, describe any qualifications you think you may have, as well as any map guides you'd especially like to work on, if any.


Join our Project and help make Conquer Club better for everyone---and maybe we can tip the balance on Conquer Club back to strategy from 'random' intensity cubes. ;)

I wrote a Fog of War guide for the Strategy Ad-Hoc group a while back. What happened to it?

Old forum topics are in the archives. If you want access to anything from the old project, it can be retrieved, should you want to participate in the new Strategy Guide Project.

So you mean to tell us all the guides we spent lots of hours on are totally being wasted? Seems very counter productive.


Edited to add... After the last attempted failure and thus waste of mine and others times. I doubt any of the same people will be back helping. Shame as we had many good guides ready to rock.

Pay attention, Andy already said if you need something from the previous attempts brought out of the archives for use in this project he would be willing to do so.

Moot point... I had already read what andy put... but this basically is the same project all over again thus wiping out what we already did.

Edited and to add to that it has been some time since we worked on the project I cannot honestly remember how much was done or what was done now at this point.

There is a guide already written on the American Civil War, which you shall find here: viewforum.php?f=374

However, we are also going to go through and check all those guides to see if there are any changes to be made, which you can help with :)

I was part of the original group and worked on a lot of guides, some of them that were never published and despite the fact the group went inactive I am keen on it not happening this time and hence am helping lead the group to prevent this from happening again. If you are interested in knowing what you began working on previously, then drop me a PM and I can find out and send it to you. :)

Right, Bruce, if you have old material, we can dig it up and you can start it again, or use it in some capacity.

I would like to do either 2 or 4 maps.

I feel confident that I can do mostly any map but would really like feudal war. I am sure something is already done there but I can probably improve on it. Then you can pick any other "complex" map. Please let me know.
