MP Fairness Rules

Post by Coracle » Fri Nov 12, 2010 9:45 pm

It's been a long time for me and I forgot some things. Apart from the technical stuff in the other thread, there used to be a few practices and rules when we played this stuff on the Zone in the old times. So maybe you can please remind me. What I remember:

- Standard game setting was: T5, many, medium, irregular.

- In 1-on-1 the challenged has first pick of race, the challenger then goes second.

- Otherwise, if Tech is free: challenger chooses Tech settings, challenged then has first pick of race.

- In 2 v 2: cloaked races don't pair.

- Forbidden: the Edo - training

- At startup in T5, when the two additional system's (apart from the home world), maximum population (after terraforming all planets) did not add up to --- (how many?) ... the respective player had the right to ask for a restart of the game.

- For the purpose of a quick restart in this case, there was a key to press, does anyone remember?

- Don't ever use in-game chat during battle round (because game most likely crashes).

Any more? Anything wrong?

I think you have most if not all of the old rules :wink:

But keep in mind mods will change most rules and sometimes new rules are needed.

also I post some other helpful tips if errors happen here;

this might have been an msn zone option I have never heard of this.

For a quick restart, instead of closing botf just click on new multiplayer again. That's no special trick.
