Ezekiel submitted in that DiaEmperador would play Tigran Warlord.

Is DiaEmperador not part of the team anymore?
Will be tricky to find a replacement I think.

Marcus was checking class/race combos, so maybe he has missing information

it was a great display of how to do team play as he guarded my cities some and still won the game

Well. I actually had great fun playing this game and had excitement chasing and running away from Skuns leader with his stalker shack and some charmed units in the midgame where the odds were still not in favor of my team.

Took a while before I actually felt confident my team would win this as it was basically a 2v3 for the major part of the game.

A more offensive gameplay from Skuns´ - and his team, for sure - might have turned the tide, guess the game was kind of decided when I got that 100 units empire quest and could take over Skuns´ lands without much resistance granting me cities and then a lot of happiness. Even better when I got to the other opponents city where swift migration gave humungous boosts to race happiness and elicited the heptatopia and monoculture quest rewards.

Let me know if you want a detailed report - got plenty of screenshots from this one.

I did try helping out my allies (could probably have done better on this) but the map layout was not an easy play for the draconian rouge which lasted through the game.

Well, my congratulations to Ezekiel's team <smiletext23>  Though that's what I wanted to avoid when I started this tourney - do not let win the match by one veteran vs all others   And this match has been showed that I was wrong. 
I admit I made some critical mistakes at this match. But it's hard to say if I wouldn't make such big mistakes then would be there an other result or not  

P.S. I have problems with my laptop, so I can't fill all class/race fields in the report. So please for other team let me know what I missed.

Hi guys. I'm going to the vacation from 30 of December to 8 of January. I'll try to play my turns but there is some possibility not be able to do it at all during that period <smiletext6>   So I'd appreciate to keep the timer turning off till 8-th. Sorry for the inconvenience 

Published on Sat, 22 Dec 2018 23:53:53 +0100

I might not be able to take my turn during the holiday. Please turn timer off.

Hi guys. I hope all of you still have interest to play AoW3 and don't suppose to leave after this session will end.  Despite the very long duration of this session and also of all the tourney.   So I wish you keep fight, good luck and let the best team win <smiletext23>

P.S. Anyways let me know of all changes if it will be in the future 

Published on Wed, 31 Oct 2018 20:08:21 +0100

Hi all. I'll be on vacation from 2 to 5 of November. I'll try to do my best to not delaying my turns but perhaps I can't play that period of time. Anyways, sorry for the inconvenience

Hi Nubnub. I'm sorry to hear that. Thanks for not keeping silent about your problem. <smiletext0>
As I can see in the PBEM lobby you didn't trigger Ironman notification. So you haven't give us any evidence and you can continue without worries <smiletext0> But for the future turns you should deal with your problem. If you need a help with finding the issue - our community will try to help you <smiletext1>  Otherwise it may cause Ironman notification and I'll have to give you a warning. <smiletext6>
I hope that it's only the internet connection issue and you'll fix it without any problems.   Though anyway I advise you after starting next few turns for the first save and exit, and then open session again and play it as usual. 

Published on Thu, 18 Oct 2018 22:51:01 +0200

Did it trigger an Ironman reload notification? Does it display something in the turn email notification (or in the PBEM lobby)? If not, then you're fine.
If it does, then Skuns will tell you.

I just did my turn and it got stuck during uploading after I had ended my turn. I canceled, reloaded the save and tried again, that time it just failed by itself after some time. I then closed my game (it crashed at that, curiously), restarted the application, reloaded the save and that time it still took its time, but worked at last. So in the end I still only did my turn once, but it took three tries to upload it. Do I have to provide some sort of evidence for that somewhere?

Hi. I'm a little sick now. So I can't say when I'll be able to continue playing my turns. Sorry for the delay. I turned off the timer and I would prefer to leave the timer turned off for this period of sickness

Turned on the timer again

Hi Skuns,

To clarify, there was never any doubt you will recieve a warning without proof, I've done this for 2 years now.

The formal approach you mention, means that Ezekiel can't be a judge in this match, hence why I said to not waste more time on this specific occasion, as it's summer time and finding 2 new judges will prolong an already long process.
If you really want to maintain a formal process, I suggest you create a spreadsheet and share it so I can formally submit your warning there. And to be even more formal, you should then consider creating rules, similair to the duel tournament or the 2v2 where instructions regarding restarts and procedures to observe players who have restart/s are in place. 

I thought your initial messages pointed toward the direction where such meassures wouldnt be implemented, but if you want to continue this formal approach, I again suggest you update the rules.

In regards to you mentioning new players (please refrain from calling them newbies) and following the process, I already addressed my reply to all players with instructions of how the process works.

Sorry for the delay. I had been visited by guests and so I couldn't play

To Marcus
You wrote in your PM: "I've understood that the matches are moving very slowly so lets not spend too much time debating crashes!" Agree with you, but I need, for the first, to let other newbies (on the site or at the tourney) an example showing how each player have to do in the same situation. And, for the second, I have to observe a formal approach to the situation, so I'm still waiting for Ezekiel's opinion

To Marcus
I understand your position and may be you're right. But may be I should give you more info about what happened. While I was playing my turn I started watching the battle from one of my teammates against AI. And at that moment I moved to another program window. When I returned to the game window the game was not response. But while I was waiting when it will start to response again, Windows decided to close it with the notification message window. I did not expect such behaviour, so I haven't a screen with the game-not-response approvements <smiletext6> I could take a photo of notification message, but I didn't do it  Though it was only on Russian, so it's unlikely that you could translate it <smiletext0>

Hi all,

When you have a crash, you must take relevant actions, such as a screenshot, a video etc. to "proof" what happened.

I guess we can be a bit less forceful than in an "official" tournament, but we should still keep track of game crashes/restarts so that we can take relevant actions when and if it becomes a problem.

The image provided is not enough to be ruled as a "restart with proof", therefore the ruling must be that it's a "restart without proof", and you can continue the game.

Hi, guys. I have to inform you about the next. Today, while I was playing current turn in the tourney session, I've got a game crash. According the rules I have to stop playing and wait other judges decision - is my approvements enough to continue or not. Despite the fact that Ezekiel is involved in this session too, - the kind of my approvements allows him to be as the judge in this subject. However, if we'll got different positions from both main judges (Ezekiel & marcuspers), I'll have to ask an opinion of additional judges too.

To Ezekiel
To avoid any pressure on you before the vacation I've turned off the timer just in case <smiletext0>

Published on Mon, 09 Jul 2018 21:47:59 +0200

Ok, I'll turn off the timer at Friday <smiletext0>  Good vacation <smiletext23>
