I removed the turn timer as Eskild asked, however I think we won't really need that because game will probably end very soon!

Published on 2016-11-30 06:53:22

Will probably not be able to play my turn this evening so will probably remove turn timer. Should be ok tomorrow. I need to reduce my number of games...

Hi there! I am organizing an international workshop today and tomorrow and am thus quite busy so cannot play my turn on that game. Will probably be able to play it tomorrow or the day after, sorry.

Ok so here are the screenshots. So you obviously won. I'm not going to comment more for now as the game is still ongoing for fun now and commenting would give you elements that you could use against us. We'll see if we manage to get the scores lie!

rickyroo has some difficulties posting the screenshots here. I'll post them when I'm at home (he sent them to me). You've won guys, congratz! Basically you have 8000 and 9000 score and us 4500 x2.

I'm doing a dummy report of the match with us winning so that we can launch round 2 to avoid having everyone wait 24 hours just for us. We'll edit the report if the score shows you won.

AlX you didn't send your turn, please do that ASAP. After your message, Ii was convinced you had sent it but you didn't. I checked many times before sleeping yesterday but rickyroo didn't connect and then he didn't post here to say you hadn't sent the turn. We're wasting one day for all the participants of the tourney. Please send the turn ASAP.

Not yet, it will be over after rickyroo plays his turn. Seriously, I don't know who will win this. I expected you would be ahead in score but maybe not. Eager to see the scores! But it's a shame the official part ends like that, it would have been much better to fight to death inside the tournament!

Published on 2016-11-15 10:35:07

I've actually finished my turn before looking on the forum...

So I suppose the official part of the match is over?

Published on 2016-11-14 18:40:16

Hey guys! rickyroo had a great idea: what about continuing our game after the deadline but only for fun? It's a shame to stop when the action is really just starting.

So, the end of round is in 5 hours 25 minutes. Two possibilities:
1/ if AlX, rickyroo and Eskild can play their turn before that, then we continue for round 36
2/ if not, then rickyroo is this game's last turn for the tournament

If 1/, then we'll see tomorrow when it's my turn.
If 2/, then rickyroo has to surrender to display the score. At the end of his turn, just before surrendering, he would save & exit. Then after he surrenders and takes all the screenshots of all scores (research, military, etc.), he can end AoW3.exe and reloads. He will have an Ironman notification.

I don't see another way to see the score without crashing the game and getting a notification. Let me know if you know any.

Precision on the application of the rule: after the deadline (today 23:59 CET, please see the countdown there: https://www.the-battlefield.c... players finish the ongoing turn (e.g. turn 23 of your game) and the last player in the turn order surrenders and takes the screenshot. The score of the turn that was ongoing at the moment of the deadline is used to decide the winners.

PS: I'm going to play my turn in about 2 hours.

Published on 2016-11-12 18:11:19

Current round will end in about 54 hours. Rules say: "If neither of the players won 2 months after the start of the round, then one should surrender and take a screenshot of the score and provide it to the judges. The team with the highest (combined) score then wins the match. If scores are very close, the judges can decide that it is a draw and ask the players to replay the game with a shorter (for instance 1 month) deadline."

We are discussing exactly how to apply that with the 2 other judges.

Published on 2016-11-07 11:20:54

Ok, just got feedback from the 2 judges (didn't have a vote on this) and we can continue. Both rickyroo and AlX's reloads are considered justified by adequate proof by the judges.

Published on 2016-11-04 16:57:04

Hi guys! So rickyroo had a crash as he told you by PM (I think?). The 2 other judges told us to continue, they are not convinced by the proof provided because it lacked timestamp as rickyroo was not playing on Windowed mode. We're going to provide additional screenshots of the game in the same situation as the crash. In any case, we continue, and depending on what the judges say, we have either a "reload justified by adequate proof" or "not justified by adequate proof".

Published on 2016-11-01 21:37:20

I will see what I can do. It´s not every day I have the opportunity to take my turn before going to work. And not every day that I´m back before 17.

Published on 2016-10-31 08:30:10

Only 15 days left...

Eskild, I'm not sure if you can do anything about it, but if you can play your turn before 17h European time, that would allow me to play mine before 18h European time, after which I go to sleep. Otherwise, we'll be doing turns every 2 days... I exceptionally played my turn this morning before going to work but I cannot reproduce that. And I'm not even sure AlX will be able to play his turn before this evening European time so that may be useless...

Weekend problems
Here we go again. I will not be able to take my turn before sunday evening, roughly 54 hours from now. After that things go back to normal. Cheers.

Published on 2016-09-28 17:16:08

Got feedback from judges: I get a warning for reload with adequate proof (screenshot). So we can go on...

Published on 2016-09-28 15:04:17

Got a crash because I had the game open when I changed the connection to my screen from my work laptop to my personal laptop and it somehow crashed AoW3 (and then the screen stopped working and I was crazy because of that + the fact that I could easily have avoided that **crash by exiting while I plugged the screen <smiletext6><smiletext6><smiletext6>).

I remove turn timer and report to judges. That pisses me off because I know that this crashes sometimes and I had actually left the game to avoid that, but then for no reason, I rejoined before the change of screen was completed.


Published on 2016-09-23 19:22:12

Ok I'll turn down or extend the turn timer.

Published on 2016-09-22 19:10:03

Weekend problems
Hi there.

I´m heading for a summer cottage from saturday to sunday with my inlaws and might have problems with making my turn within the 24 hour time limit. Perhaps we can consider extending turn timer in that period (but not yet now).


Published on 2016-09-12 21:58:59

We've sent race/class for the game to the judges and joined the game (ricky is still missing )

Published on 2016-09-12 19:07:16

Looks like we're getting toward a replay and depending on the situation on 15 October, you'll either win or we'll continue.

So please join quickly so that we can try to finish this before 15 October!
Don't forget to send again your class/race if you change them.

Published on 2016-09-09 18:40:47

(still no decision from judges but to save time, I hosted)

So, maybe you should wait for judges decision before joining AlX and Eskild to know if you need to rechoose class/race. I think that would make sense that you can choose if you want.
rickyroo and I are going to send class/race in case we have a rematch.

Eskild, do you want to finish the game we had ongoing before cbower left?

Also, Eskild and AlX, please check our team chat. I have a question for you there.

Replacement Notification
cbower was replaced with rickyroo222 !

Published on 2016-09-09 11:40:52

Hi guys! So... I found a new team mate. The judges are not yet sure how to proceed but one possibility is that we restart this game.
So I'm going to host it when I get back home. Please join it, which will save us time if we indeed have to replay it.

My team mate is rickyroo, I add him as a replacement to cbower.

Published on 2016-09-07 18:53:07

Hey there! Due to the departure of cbower, it is likely that I will have to forfeit the game and my team, in its current form, will quit the tournament. We'll see if I can found a new team. We're discussing with the judges what happen if I can.

That's sad. This tournament was going to be epic. But I understand cbower's decision...

So I removed the turn timer, awaiting for the other 2 judges' decision.

Published on 2016-09-03 10:27:27

Hi there, I will take my turn in a jiffy, but if we keep the 24 hour timer, there is a chance that - if you guys play your turns really fast - I will miss my turn tomorrow. So perhaps change it just for this weekend. Cheers.

Published on 2016-08-21 18:56:24

Hi Eskild, what's up? I reverted the turn so that you can play it as the timer expired.

Published on 2016-08-10 04:42:56

Hey guys, I am at a conference for the until Friday night, and I won’t be able to play my turns until then. Sorry for the delay.

Published on 2016-07-21 23:08:43

I will be going on sunday <smiletext0> so currently still here.
besides Eskild will be away longer

Enjoy the Holiday AIX

Published on 2016-07-20 15:15:07

Ok, I'll turn it off.

Published on 2016-07-19 20:36:22

Game on...
Hi there.

Just wanted to notify that the game will progress very slowly from monday and a good bunch of time onwards. Myself is on holiday from tuesday the 26th to around the 6th of August. As it´s a special holiday I can´t promise in advance being able to take any turns in that period at all - but I will try to sneak the computer with me and see if I can make a turn once in a while.

AlX wrote me that he will be away from monday (the 25th) and for about one week.

Hope you can deal with that. Turning off the turn timer from around sunday. It would maybe be nice for me already now to have it changed to 2 days as we´re throwing off a big party this saturday.
