The report's blog is not the place to ask this question and the judges should replay, but i believe there would be no problem to have a team replacement (:

Ask in chat or write a message to Hiliadan/Marcus

Confirmed by xlnt
It was a learning game for us as a team too - we had to go over the class/race combos, specs, planning the whole run, finding out NO plan can survive meeting reality/opposition and also how to communicate - all the fun things we do as humans (:

we found there is a dragon dwelling very early on (turn 5?) by being lucky and using map revealing pick-ups - i wanted to rush getting that and Henry executed it so well - it transfered into a game ending plan. i provided some economics and research to have a plan-B. I ended up getting 2x t4 giants and Henry never got the dragons dwelling

so glad to see our opponents finding the game enjoyable!

Confirmed by Henrysix
Good game, all!

Published on Sat, 24 Nov 2018 21:14:35 +0100

We expected to be rushed and xlnt / henrysix did not disappoint! For myself, I made some critical mistakes in trying to play fast and meet the rush... a lot of hard lessons from this game, very glad for the chance to be pushed hard and learn against some tough opponents

Good luck to the winners in the next round(s)!

Hello friends,

I've just come back in town and finished my turn... unfortunately I chose an indie battle that did not go well and lost my leader, so good game to all

This has been a great learning experience, so thank you for the game!

turn 26
1 player is out of the game (Longinus) and we are pretty much engaged.

Hi! What turn did you reach so far? 20 days left.

Published on Sun, 18 Nov 2018 08:03:03 +0100

Hello everyone,

I have to leave this morning (earlier than I had planned) and I'm traveling until Saturday... I'm taking my laptop with me but I don't expect to be able to play much. Sorry for the inconvenience, but after this I should not have to take any breaks for a while!

I will turn off the turn timer in the meantime (of course please let me know if you also need the timer off for any reason)

Published on Sat, 10 Nov 2018 21:34:42 +0100

all is fine, those games go like this
last tournament went for 1 year

Published on Sat, 10 Nov 2018 21:21:36 +0100

Turn timer resumed

Just a heads up - later in the month I will be traveling for the holidays, leaving Monday 11/19 and returning Saturday 11/24

Sorry for all of the delays, it has been a busy season but I will try to play quickly during the rest of the round

Published on Thu, 08 Nov 2018 09:58:13 +0100

hey - no problems, all the best in the new place (;

Published on Thu, 08 Nov 2018 04:42:18 +0100

Apologies everyone... I just finished moving this past weekend and it seems there are some issues with handing off the old place that will require me to be there in person. I will be traveling tomorrow (Thursday) and should be back by Saturday.

I will bring my laptop and may even be able to play my turns as normal, but until I get back I will need to stop the turn timer just in case... Sorry for that, I know we were all just getting back into it <smiletext6>

OH MY GOD I just now understand your name... X-L-N-T as in "excellent" 

until now I thought X-I-N-T as in "x-int"... because I am not a smart man :/

Published on Mon, 22 Oct 2018 17:12:05 +0200


and thank you - it's back, whole ..amm route/trace (not sure what the correct word is) has been changed - weird problem... had no i-net for around 30h. but got a call that it's fixed (:

Published on Mon, 22 Oct 2018 16:09:16 +0200

Turn timer is off for now. Safe travels to henrysix, and xint hope you can get your internet back

Published on Mon, 22 Oct 2018 13:02:38 +0200

My i-net is down - hope to get it back tonight but i can't say.
hope we don't have the timer running but either way - i'm sorry for the delay

Published on Mon, 22 Oct 2018 05:50:50 +0200

I will be away for a couple weeks, from 23 October to 6 November. I may be able to play 1 or 2 more turns, depending, but I'd appreciate turning the turn timer off until I return. Thanks!

Published on Sat, 20 Oct 2018 15:00:06 +0200

I will be traveling for most of the day and should be home in about 13-14 hours— which should give me 2-3 hours to play my turn. Sorry to delay, I brought my laptop with me just in case I could play my turn yesterday but the timing didn’t quite work out for me.

Game resumed
Thanks Hiliadan! Just played my turn, will continue to keep debug mode on.

@all I will resume the turn timer before I go to bed tonight (in about 4 hours).

Published on Thu, 18 Oct 2018 19:49:21 +0200

Hi! Thanks for sending us the crash log.
So darkapothem receives a warning for reload, with proof of crash considered adequate this time. You can resume the game.

@darkapothem: you need to activate debug mode in the Misc tab of the launcher to be able to enter the game. Please keep debug mode enabled even after that, so that we have game logs in case other issues occur (which we hope won't happen).

On Mac, the window closes immediately and then I get the popup informing me of the crash, which is the first photo I submitted.

I did not play in debug mode, and at first glance (though I am not an expert) the only logs I see from AOW3 with today's timestamp are the ones generated by the launcher (I can screenshot the Finder window if necessary)

I'm not exactly sure where to look for a crash log generated by the Mac, but I will investigate...

EDIT: I was able to find the crash log generated by my system, where should I attach / send it?

Published on Wed, 17 Oct 2018 21:38:49 +0200

Ok, so... When you have a crash, you need to provide as much proofs of the crash as possible. I don't know how it works on Mac. On Windows, when the game crashes, usually it doesn't close the window immediately and you can still take a screenshot of the greyed game.
Do you have a log from the crash from the Mac?
Did you play in debug mode? If yes, you'll have a log of the crash from AoW3 too.

Regarding the incompatibility, it's normal. I'll tell you how to proceed once we confirm what we do with Marcuspers.

Published on Wed, 17 Oct 2018 21:20:29 +0200

Sure sure, I dont want to come across like I am worried too much about the rules. I just want to make sure I am a fair opponent and that I am doing what I should be doing. I'm glad you are also here for a friendly game, because I am much too far from being the best to be here for just that reason ...

Published on Wed, 17 Oct 2018 21:15:21 +0200

Thank you xint, I appreciate that. 

I wasn't quite finished with my turn, but would have had no problem finishing within the next 10 minutes if not for the crash...

I also appear to have a mod conflict in this particular game, where I did not have one before and do not appear to have one with either of the other two games I have running with these same mods:

Published on Wed, 17 Oct 2018 21:08:48 +0200

stop the timer - no problems for that at all, glad you managed to get back to the game on time (:

i was afraid you might lose your turn ):

p.s. - just saw the pic of the crush - don't worry about the rules that much, we are having a friendly game and we all care mostly about having a nice game and wanted to prevent bad experiance like skipping a turn. Marcus and Hiliadan will tell you what to do - probably just run the client again but for sure stop the timer, please!

Published on Wed, 17 Oct 2018 21:08:17 +0200

game crash
I just had the game crash:

I should suspend the timer and wait for advice before I proceed now, correct?

EDIT: I did not get any ingame screenshots before the crash, but are there other files or photos I need to provide?

Published on Wed, 17 Oct 2018 20:39:42 +0200

What do you mean? You want to do your turn but dont think you can make it in 2h?
You can always ask the turn timer to be removed, it might be too small of a window for the host to see it, so better be quick and make your turn!

In the future, please send a message slightly before, so the host have a chance to stop timer.

EDIT: I see Darkapothem is the host, so just pause the timer if you cant play your turn in 2h, you are not allowed to revert the turn (if it runs out).

Published on Wed, 17 Oct 2018 20:36:37 +0200

I just got home, logged in to take my turn now. According to the server I have just over two hours to do so:

I looked at rule 3, it says if a turn skips bc of the timer running out we are supposed to stop play and wait for advice from the judges

Published on Wed, 17 Oct 2018 19:17:57 +0200

darkapothem is close to skipping a turn ):

i'm not too familiar with the options we have - can we load a save to prevent that or something?

Published on Sun, 14 Oct 2018 16:26:26 +0200

We are at turn 13

Published on Sun, 14 Oct 2018 16:09:35 +0200

Hi! Checking on all games: what turn did you reach? <smiletext0>

Published on Thu, 04 Oct 2018 20:12:53 +0200

i took my turn

Published on Thu, 04 Oct 2018 20:11:28 +0200

its fixed

Published on Thu, 04 Oct 2018 16:36:33 +0200

just stop the timer and solve this - if you have issues, maybe we all will have issues or is this steam vs gog thing?

i don't know much about updating the game - i just click a button and follow what Hiliadan says

anyway - i wanted to say - don't worry, we'll solve this (;

Published on Thu, 04 Oct 2018 15:37:02 +0200

Please be more specific. Also it's not the beta branch but the main branch.
