    I started a game on there for us to try. Everyone who wants to play, let me know when you get signed on to the site, and I'll invite you to the game. We'll get started in a few days.

    I know there are more Civ players on Icrontic than this. ;)

    FYI, this will be my first Civ. multiplayer game. I hardly know any strategies and will probably get rolled, but I'm looking forward to it.

  • IlriyasIlriyas Magician, Sunbro, Grossly Incandescent Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    Same here, heck I don't think I've ever played a difficulty higher than standard either.

    Want to team up NiGHTS? We can be the noob alliance :D

  • BasilBasil Nubcaek IREEELAND Icrontian
    Well, so long as my fellow noobies are going for it, I'm down for some Civ multiplayer.

  • CBCB Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ @TheButterflyman Icrontian
    I don't think anyone on this roster is a Civ expert. ;)

  • IlriyasIlriyas Magician, Sunbro, Grossly Incandescent Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    Alrighty just signed up on GMR

  • TheRedburnTheRedburn Icrontian
    HOW TO SIGN UP!?!!?!?
    ·
  • IlriyasIlriyas Magician, Sunbro, Grossly Incandescent Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    Follow the link in CB's article, sign up through your Steam account, list here that you've done as such and in time CB will send you a link to the game.

    Further note: It's not really clear on the site how to sign up for e-mail notifications, and how to set your in-game password. These are both done by clicking on your own avatar in the upper right corner of the site.

    I'm signed up!

  • CBCB Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ @TheButterflyman Icrontian
    Once Redburn gets in, and everyone accepts the invite to the game, the game will be full, and I'll get it started. Of course, since a game with this many players will end up with maybe about one turn/week, I'm not opposed to being in more than one game at a time. :)
    ·
  • PirateNinjaPirateNinja Mountains Icrontian
    I'm also open to being in up to say 3 games at a time. Maybe we can arrange a 2vs2? or if anybody wants to do a smaller game with 3 players .. etc. I'm totally open.
    ·
  • IlriyasIlriyas Magician, Sunbro, Grossly Incandescent Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    I'd be up to one or two to learn some of the finer mechanics and such.
    ·
  • CBCB Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ @TheButterflyman Icrontian
    I made the mistake of not counting myself, so one of the folks who expressed interest in the thread will not be making it in due to the 12-player limit. Though, as I said, we can have more games. Anyone can start a new game and start inviting people. I certainly wont turn down any invitations.

    I'm wondering if each game should have its own discussion thread, since there will likely be a bunch of call outs and such as the game progresses.

    I'd be happy enough to sit out the 12 man and go with a smaller game or two.
    ·
  • NiGHTSNiGHTS San Diego Icrontian
    I would like to stay in the 12 man, but welcome a secondary game as well.
    ·
  • CBCB Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ @TheButterflyman Icrontian
    Okay, then we're just waiting for Redburn to get signed up, and for he and Prag to accept the game invite, then I'll start the game.

    Wait were you in the game? I removed someone with a username I didn't recognize from the thread assuming it was you, but now I see there was another person in this thread who is not in the game by their IC username, so I might have just kicked that person?

    If anyone wants to get some 1v1 games going in the mean time we can set it up with rules over in that thread. Could be fun.

    I re-invited Hammercock, whoever that is, just in case kicking him/her was a mistake.

    Game will likely be starting in a few hours. Whoever is left with 'other' for their civ will be getting 'random'.

    Don't think so, didn't get a notification about an invite or anything.

    That would be PirateNinja.

    CB always kicking me from online games because of my malfeasance. :P Glad I got invited back.

  • CBCB Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ @TheButterflyman Icrontian
    The game has begun. Here's a place to talk about it as it goes:

    There will be more games. :)

    How do you set the map options in a GMR game?
    ·
  • CBCB Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ @TheButterflyman Icrontian
    You don't do it through GMR. GMR only handles passing the turn around. Whichever player is in the Player 1 slot is tasked with setting up the game inside the Civ V interface.
    ·
  • CBCB Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ @TheButterflyman Icrontian
    Some of the GMR regulars are setting up a 1v1 tourney.
