interest in a lower-ranked game?

Postby Eleusinian » 30 Dec 2016, 22:08

I'm a dependable player, but not a particularly good one. :) I've seen a few 1500+ games, and it makes sense that expert players would want a game where they don't have to worry about inexperienced people getting underfoot. Well, I think it'd be interesting to try a game where people like me don't have to worry about experts trampling us!

I'm thinking 1300 or less, but I'm open to suggestions. Also open to suggestions as to the exact parameters. I'd like anon countries and DIAS, myself, but not married to either.

Who's in?

I'd probably be interested. Anon countries is available to non premium now right? So I'd be fine with that as well.

My preference on turn length would be 2/1/1 or 3/1/1.

I concur with Jordan767, on turn length. Anon countries preferred.

I just created a game called Huiothesia. Its got a 2 day order, 12 hour retreat, 12 hour build time periods. I'm brand new to the site so I have no ranking but I used to play on Dip2000 before I got married and had kids. That sidetracked me for a number of years but I'm ready to get back in the saddle and I found this site today. If anyone is interested, I'd love to have you join my game.

iustitiafide: I'm actually going to be creating a Classicist game, so not open to the general public. Sorry!

stew0610: I don't see you on the Classicists lists, are you a member?

To the others who have replied here: I created the game: 125276

- casual Classicists game (ie, aspiring tier included)
- ranked
- anon countries
- 2/1/1 deadlines
- secret ballot DIAS
- protected + reset if NMR on first turn (though that hopefully won't be an issue!)

I will PM the password to the Classicists who expressed interest here. I'm about to head out for NYE celebrations, but tomorrow I'll update this thread and first post to advertise it more actively.

Love the idea! 2/1/1 is a bit fast for me with my current schedule, but I think some more games designed for players in the low-to-mid ranking tiers would be very welcome.
