On some maps it wouldn't really matter, but I see a foggy Stalingrad game that I'd like to join. Unfortunately, I'm not on a whole lot during the break, so I'm not sure whether this will work out. But just thought I'd try anyway.

Hey HA, any chance as we get further into the tourney and there's less players to keep track of that you'd be willing to do a fog rule?


I am one that believes in the courtesy of the 12 hour fog rule--but I am not going to enforce them in my tourneys. I think CC should have a button that says ready and that button is up for half of the first round until everyone is ready, but that is on CC

I may have got the 12 hour fog rule explained in the past, but I can't quite remember. What does it actually mean, and what would be the point?

To me a rule regarding not attacking the first round, regardless of fog or not fog would make more sense, to give both players more of an equal chance. If a round is 24 hours, I can't see what difference 12 hours, 1 hour or 24 hours would do, especially if the players are in different time zones.

The rule is a courtesy to let everyone in the game at least see the drop before someone takes a turn. No other game that I know starts where you do not know where you started. If you don't see the drop and someone takes territs there is no way for you to know where YOU started. 12 hours just gives people time to see their own drop--nothing more--It is a good sportsmanship thing to do. Personally I avoid joining any fog game first, but after I do join I sent the player a wall or communicate in the game for a response before taking a turn--unless I have to take that turn as my time would run out or I won't be on line.

This was news to me, and I cannot remember any foggy games where that rule has been followed. But then most of my foggy games have been on maps where the rule would not have made any difference, like Age Of Realms 2: Magic or Feudal Epic. I have tried a few on the Classic map, but usually foggy games on that map goes very badly for me, regardless of this rule or not.

But it was nice to know about it, and it makes sense. I will try to remember if I play any foggy games where I can attack my opponent in the first round.

It is just a courtesy, not an official rule of any kind. I have followed this rule for about two years now.

A slight delay--I was sick all week with no energy for much. I should have the next round going by Tuesday--anyone who wants to post maps and settings I will take them after this post

Good luck to those remaining.

Im out after 3 games of somewhat poor playing on my part. Had at least a couple of chances to get one or two of my games going, but miscalculated, misunderstood or just picked the wrong strategy.

I had fun, though and got somewhat further than I really expected.

Im assuming there are still freemiums and first time tourney entries left, but just in case, I think I qualify as a freemium as I played the first half or so as such then got gifted by my guild leader with some premium and this was my first tourney, so if noone else is left or I have time to get my chainsaw and cut their web-connections, let me know ;-)

Thx for a great tourney HA.
PM me for an invite to Ikariam, a balanced strategy MMORPG centered on a city-based empire. Help and extra resources from me and an extra tradships and a small science bonus to both of us if you do :-)

You'll be missed Tviorr. It was great talking to you in this thread :)

Map request:

Stalingrad, foggy, chained, no spoils

I want to make up for the loss last round :)
