Who wants to do a standard tournament bracket of 1v1 games?
All we need to do is get 8 players to sign up.

I'm 1 player.

    It would be a long tournament, but I'm down for it. You have any specific maps or rules in mind?
  • pigflipperpigflipper The Forgotten Coast Icrontian
    Guess I need to redownload and get my Civ5 skills back in action.

    List of rules would be nice, so I can know what I will be working with.
  • AnnesAnnes Tripped Up by Libidos and Hubris Alexandria, VA Icrontian
    Sure. I'm in.
  • RyanFodderRyanFodder Detroit, MI Icrontian
    Ideas on how to make the games last a short number of turns?
  • CBCB Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Der Millionendorf- Icrontian
    You can change the pace to "Quick", which I recommend - but is not as good if you actually want to have battles - or you can set the game to start in a later era, which I don't recommend, only because I think it's not as fun to have the early game decisions made for you, even if playing them is kind of boring.

    My thought on rules, since we are all new to this async turn based stuff, is that we just use the standard set:

    Starting positions on the bracket are randomly generated.
    We need 4 or 8 players to get this going.
    It could take a few weeks or maybe 2 months, I actually have no idea. I just wanted to get some 1v1 matches going so we can learn GMR.

    I haven't played Civ V for so long that I don't really remember what the heck I'm doing.

    It seems like we 3 people willing to give this a shot so far:
    Annes
    CrazyJoe
    Me

    If we get 1 more we could start and do a mini bracket. Otherwise we can wait for 8.
  • CBCB Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Der Millionendorf- Icrontian
    I would change the game pace to 'quick', and for two players, I would decrease the map size to 'duel'

    I'm in, good way to keep up playing the larger game while waiting on turns.

    In. Would prefer default settings. Don't mind a long tourney.
  • PirateNinjaPirateNinja I don't know how to not Icrontian
    Ok so if everyone is ok with some long adventures (probably gives us 3-10 turns per week in between the one turn per week we take with the 12 player marathon) then we are almost good to go. We just need one other person who is OK with some longevity to the tournament.

    We have 7:
    Annes
    CrazyJoe
    Basil
    Ilriyas
    Pigflipper
    Midga

    We need one more to have 8 so we can do an even tournament bracket.

    Once we have 8 I'll quickly randomize the list in a spreadsheet so we can see our starting matches, and from there we get it on! Slowly.

    What the hell, I'll join in
  • PirateNinjaPirateNinja I don't know how to not Icrontian
    Alright!
    So we have 8 in for a long tournament. Since there were some who preferred the quick one, for you guys why not setup a bracket of 4?

    Randomized bracket of 8:

    Basil 
    Pirateninja

    Annes 
    Gate28

    Ilriyas 
    Midga 

    CrazyJoe 
    Pigflipper 


    When do we start? :)
  • CBCB Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Der Millionendorf- Icrontian
    was my 'in' missed? :/
  • midgamidga "There's so much hot dog in Rome" ~digi (> ^.(> O_o)> Icrontian
    CB got overlooked D:
  • PirateNinjaPirateNinja I don't know how to not Icrontian
    I'm illiterate, I somehow read this like you weren't sure. I'm sorry =(
    Gate would you mind letting CB take your place?
    If not CB can take my place and I'll just get in next time. That would not be an issue at all.

    My apologies.
  • Gate28Gate28 Orlando, Florida Icrontian
    Nah, CB can have my spot.
  • PirateNinjaPirateNinja I don't know how to not Icrontian
    That's super nice of you Gate28. I'd love to 1v1 you if you want. Sorry again.
  • midgamidga "There's so much hot dog in Rome" ~digi (> ^.(> O_o)> Icrontian
    so.....can we start? :D

    Thanks, Gate28. :) So, the rules were using are the ones listed above, including game pace and world size? (a 'small' world will be crazy big for a 1v1 game)
    I'd love to 1v1 you if you want.

    Ya CB is right, I was imaging it with computer players built in but that's not the way it works is it? I'm relatively clueless with Civ V multiplayer.

    If there are not computer players we should be doing Duel. I'm down to start the duels! Updated first bracket:

    Basil
    Pirateninja

    Annes
    CB

    Ilriyas
    Midga

    CrazyJoe
    Pigflipper
  • CrazyJoeCrazyJoe Winter Springs, FL Icrontian
    I tried to start my game with Pigflipper, but it looks like he does not have GMPR installed as I couldn't invite him to the game.

    No, don't have it installed and really don't have the time to do so until Wed, my next day off. Sorry. Bunch of flying fecal matter mixed with work, sleep and the occasional noms has been the norm lately.

    If you can wait until Wed, that would be awesome, but if not, its cool, I'll challenge someone 1v1 when I get some days off.
  • CrazyJoeCrazyJoe Winter Springs, FL Icrontian
    No problem. Take your time. Real Life comes before a game. Always.

    Hey Ily, why aren't you my friend on Steam? D:

    I'ma let you set it up. Just throw me on random. I'm not really picky :D
  • CBCB Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Der Millionendorf- Icrontian
    Started up a game with Annes. We agreed to go with 'Quick' speed (otherwise all settings as above agreed), and we took random civs. I ended up with Ottoman, and she with France.

    In case any others were confused about how to actually start games up:


    That is extremely useful. -- yes that is the same video posted in CB's original article.
    The take away is: start the game in hot seat mode and match your player choices exactly as they are on the GMR website.

    Basil and I are under way with a 1v1 quick duel using random civs.
  • PirateNinjaPirateNinja I don't know how to not Icrontian
    Updates?
    @Annes
    @CB

    @Ilriyas
    @Midga

    @CrazyJoe
    @Pigflipper

    Basil vs Pirateninja is turning in to a drawn out game. I had a big advantage for a while but @Basil is about to start a major come back...and so it drags on. It's fun, but we likely won't be finished for a while yet. We are just getting in to muskets/rifles.
