    Battlefront IV - Lords of War

    Battlefront IV - Lords of War

    Gametime: Mondays, 19.00 CET - 23.00 CET
    Next session: 6th February
    GM Fredrik (83278192)
    CO-GM/Editor HG
    Host: Juv, Fredrik or Lurken.
    Scenario: Ryos AoD mod with Kasperus map.

    Added to the scenario file
    * Perm CB on all human played nations for everyone
    * Extra cores to Brandenburg, and Venice if played.

    -----------------------
    Rules:
    - Obey the GM
    - max two humans in the same alliance
    - Vassals must be annexed within fifty years or they become "nominally independent," at less than 7 centra
    - If you chose to become a Counter-reform country, you cannot switch back to Catholicism until the Edict of Tolerance.
    - If a human is forced-vassalized he must remain this way for at least 20 years. Unless his liege frees him peacefully after those 20 years he must fight for independence (if he wants it). Vassals cannot declare war on the Overlord's allies or vassals without his permission.
    - Map sharing with the AI forbidden.
    - If at -3 stab and -99WS, you have to accept next stabhitting offer, if two terms are met, 1.) The war has been ongoing for atleast 3 years, 2.) The stab hitted nation got 5WE

    More rules will be added later, and per discussed added rules.

    Guidelines
    NOTE: This is no rules. But this is about how i expect the players to behave in the game. 95% of this is natural stuff to the most of us in the EU2 community, but i like to be clear!
    I prefer games with little amount of rules, i dont like the thought of being controled by the rules, and thus be forced to play a certain way because of them. I consider it impossible to create perfect rules, as no MP situation is alike. Therefore i rather encourage players to play in a way that create a more funny game for all of us. Respect is the key here!

    - Play long term
    - No eternal wars
    - Editing will be kept to a minimum
    - Gamey behavior will not be tolerated, Use common sense...
    - Don't threaten to quit in any way, it only cause a dismal atmosphere
    - GMs decisions that has been taken in game will only be discussed after the session.
    - If you crash ingame, turn on ICQ/MSN and message the host/GM asap. First then a rehost will be discussed ingame. Normaly we rehost after two years, if the crashed player is in war with another human, we will rehost directly.
    - Always notify the GM/CO-GM in advance if you are unable to play a session. Preferably days in advanced.
    - Find your own sub, or risk being AI or get a less skilled sub. (use the sublist in this thread first and ask them.)
    - Be online on ICQ/MSN for importent information before the session start. This also makes it easier for the GM to get an overview of the roster before the game starts.
    - Try to enter the Vnet atleast 5 minutes before session starts. To download save. This will save alot of time and means more play time. Which is what this game is for. To play and have fun.

    -----------------------

    Punishment
    This will apply if a player is, without notification, unreasonably late to a session. Breaking one of the few rules we got in the game will also be punished, you might even risk being banned from the game if it is serius enough. The GM will decied upon what punishment to use.

    Ongoing votes, Discussion and results.

    This post will be updated constantly about relivant issues, ongoing discussions and ongoing votes. I will also post results from all the votes that has been made. This will hopefully give an easy overview for those that cant/dont have time etc, to follow the thread closely every day.
    It's recomended however to atleast look through relivant posts every now and then in case the GM forget to add them here.

    Day/time voting (Vote's finished)
    It's time to vote folks, and wake this game alive for real

    1.) Monday
    2.) Tuesday
    3.) Wednesday
    4.) BF4 Rocks so would play seven days a week if possible. (This option impress the GM, and i make nice cookies )
    In other words, either day is ok with you.

    As for playing time, i'm thinking something around 18.00 CET to 23.00 CET.
    Probably 19.00 CET to 23.00 CET as that time fit the most good.

    A.) 18.00 CET to 22.00 CET
    B.) 19.00 CET to 23.00 CET
    C.) Either is ok.

    Result
    We only need a final saying from Juv and Mondays it'll be.
    Mondays 19.00 - 23.00 CET.

    Fredrik: 4A
    Cheecho: 2B
    HG: 1C, 2C
    Norre: 4B
    Juv: 1?
    FAL: 2B
    Waldzwerg:
    Lurken: 1A
    Tem: 1?

    Game options ON/OFF
    Colonial culture - ON
    Equal DP sliders - OFF
    North Amercian minors - ON
    Saharan minors - ON
    Expanded random events - OFF
    COT Shuffling - OFF
    Minimal Event Set for minimal determinism - OFF
    Tax Distribution Option - ON
    Manpower Distribution Option - ON
    Goods Distribution Option - ON
    Spain/Otto Boost Option - ON
    Forced Slider Option - ON

    Ongoing discussion
    Red = Will not be added to the game.
    Yellow = needs to be discussed over.
    Green = Agreed to be used in the game by the majority of the players.

    * Perm CB on all human played nations for everyone. (this worked out very well in BF3, it totally rocks. And it means alot more conflicts and it actually also minimize the amount of alliances.)

    * If at -3 stab and -99WS, you have to accept next stabhitting offer, if two terms are met, 1.) The war has been ongoing for atleast 3 years, 2.) The stab hitted nation got 5WE.

    * If you chose to become a Counter-reform country, you cannot switch back to Catholicism until the Edict of Tolerance.

    * If a human is forced-vassalized he must remain this way for at least 20 years. Unless his liege frees him peacefully after those 20 years he must fight for independence (if he wants it). Vassals cannot declare war on the Overlord's allies or vassals without his permission.

    * Vassals must be annexed within fifty years or they become "nominally independent," at less than 7 centra.

    * Map sharing with the AI forbidden.

    * Extra cores to Brandenburg, and Venice if played.

    * Rewards for writing AARs, and thus use an AAR system

    * What edits will be allowed etc. Signed deals in the AAR thread? Province swaps, cash? etc etc

    You better define this rule better; be more specific in what ways a vassal must obey his master. I was personally chocked last game when I was ordered by my master to attack a friendly neighbour.

    Fred,

    I'm in and I'd prefer the old time slot, at this point. Tuesdays would probably work too, but Wednesdays are out for me as I have BoP in the evenings and busy mornings.

    Oh, and we'd better do a lot of work on Ryo's scenario, as you know, or it'll be a bust.

    Im interested but can only play mon or wed.. I advise a rule that you cant have MA through other peoples vassals. I really hate that
    War of the Roses
    - The bill
    - the perfectly balanced weapon
    - Biggest WOTR wish - If both damage and deflection was scaled based on which point in the attack animation you are at when contact is made. This would represent clips and lesser blows that armour was especially effective at negating.
    - Most realistic WOTR wish - Increase deflection on heavy armour, especially against ranged
    - Balance - Nerf the headmans axe speed and increase miss/parry penalty slightly, peasant polearm overhead shouldnt instakill, reduce galo axe stab slightly, boost all polearms damage slightly and lucerne swing speed slightly - subtle only[*]


    Me and my people have an understanding. They say what they want and i do what i want

    I think i will limit the amount of players to 10-11.
    That is players for Denmark, Poland, Sweden, Brandenburg, Austria, France, England, Spain, Portugal, OE and Russia.

    It's importent to get a stable game, although with all the extra provinces this maps provides you it's alot harder to drop nations like Poland. Denmark and Portugal can however be dropped if necessary.

    We got atleast 8 interested players so far, and i expect a few others from BF3 to join us aswell.

    I'm very eager to try out Kasperus map. Tuesdays are the best for me.

    How will nations be distributed? I guess it's of minor importance considering the novelty of map and scenario...
    Top 5 wish list:

    1) Make DOWs and naval combats default pop-up messages. Add a separate air vs. naval bmbing pop-up message.
    2) Upgradable Soviet Guards (and elite MEC+ARM units)
    3) Limit GOI's
    4) Improve forts, engineer construction missions to get in line with the rest of the detail in the game.
    5) Dissent/threat hit for refusing trade of surplus resources when one/both of the parties are at peace to avoid resource starving pre-war strategies in MP.

    May I suggest my settings for random leaders in Du 1.5? They seem to work quite well.

    Leaders are capped there at a maximum of 5/5/5/2. With a 5/5/5/2 leader only appearing at 2% odds.

    Average Movement/Fire/Shock would be: 3.1/2.8/2.8
    Average Siege: 1
    Average life period: 17
    Max 2 generals, max 2 admirals.

    -----------------------
    Game settings
    Colonial culture - ON/OFF
    Equal DP sliders - ON/OFF
    North Amercian minors - ON/OFF
    Saharan minors - ON/OFF
    Expanded random events - ON/OFF
    COT Shuffling - ON/OFF
    Minimal Event Set for minimal determinism - ON/OFF
    Averaged-Regional Tax Mod (boost) - ON/OFF
    Averaged-Regional Manpower Mod (boost) - ON/OFF
    I suggest:

    Colonial culture - OFF
    Equal DP sliders - OFF
    North Amercian minors - ON
    Saharan minors - ON
    Expanded random events - OFF
    COT Shuffling - OFF
    Minimal Event Set for minimal determinism - OFF
    Averaged-Regional Tax Mod (boost) - OFF
    Averaged-Regional Manpower Mod (boost) - OFF

    Very conservative options, but I find it enough experimental to run with a new map to start with. I do like the idea of COT shuffling and minimal events though.

    2% for the best leader to appear seems a bit low though

    And you're using the state page to generate this right?

    Indeed, my thought also.
    Those options is something i had in mind aswell, i want to add minimal events also.
    I think the main task here is to complete a long termed MP game with this new map, it'll be interesting to see how things will turn out.

    Fred,

    Keep in mind that the tax/manpower values have to be completely rewritten in Europe.

    Check out the EGA V thread and Ryo's forum for information on how we, at least, have chosen to go about it.
