    Hi guys! I come bearing word from /domg/'s very much less well known cousin, 8/domg/. We'd like to challenge y'all to a friendly match of Dominions, most likely a disciple match of 4v4. We'll be using a server of our own, so no PBEMs. While nothing is set in stone, we already have a mind to set the age to MA, no bans, and we'll just take turns choosing nations. Mods will be restricted to summod 0.77 and Worthy Heroes 5.6NN. No maps chosen yet, though likely either The Old Kingdom (127+25) or Plane of Rusty Nails (143+12).

    Do let us know what you think.

    I want to play but disciples are not too fun for me, I'd prefer just a nice FFA with you guys. I guess I could take part tho, if I'm not the team leader. I've never played a disciple game with just two teams, maybe I'd like that more.

    I'd like to avoid Summod 0.77, and with four ongoing games I can't bother to be a team leader. I like Disciple games, but Summod games are a huge no-no. I can agree if we test again Johannes ' mod, though, as it would help a fellow Codexer.

    Malakal , are the guys legit? /domg/ I know, never heard of a Dominions Community back at 8chan.

    We're a pretty quiet bunch, but we used to have a regular dom4 thread on 8/v/. It fell off recently with most of us moving to Discord, but we're supposed to remake that soon™.

    Though, any reason why summod is ruled out? Just curious mainly, not a dealbreaker for us, since we do play vanilla blitzes now and again.

    FFA definitely would be on the cards if enough agree to it. But for now, let's stick with a friendly community vs community game.

    Never liked balancing mods out of autism-like principle. If you prefer a rebalance mod, I can accept one for testing a fellow forum-dweller's work.

    Plus Sum1won is an asshat, but that's just my personal opinion.

    Got it. The main problem on the 'dex is finding team leaders, as you can see. Too much... work. And we're quite the relaxed kind of Dominions players.

    The meta in those type of games is very different from the usual FFA type of game. /domg/ ran a series of two team games set in all ages so I more or less know whats good and whats not.

    Understood. We can take it off then. Not too attached to it. I'd prefer to just have Worthy Heroes, in this case, since we're not familiar with the mod you speak of. (Although if you could link us the mod, we can playtest it ourselves to see if its to our liking.)

    And no problem. Take your time. Dom4 is meant to be played at a sedate pace anyway. :D

    When your team is assembled, just holler for me in the thread and we can get the ball rolling. I'll probably be the main point of contact since all the guys here likely would not have Codex accounts.

    Malakal, take the lead! Or Johannes?

    I definitely agree on summod - for me it's just that the dom4 is complex enough anyway that trying to learn new balancing for some games is too much work for a noob like me :)

    I can play probably, as long as the schedule's not too tight. What era?

    We did the one game here on Kodex as well. It got decided p. early though, but then that is normal in 2-team games.

    If Johannes takes the lead, I guess I can play.

    They wanted MA.

    We are indeed a slow bunch, if it wasn't clear enough.




    Johannes , do you accept the Sacred Role of Codexian Team Leader?

    I'm up for it! But if someone is very keen to play I am fine with giving up my spot for them.

    If you really need another player (who barely knows what he's doing) to get this started, I'm in.

    Excellent. Looks like we can get the game underway.

    Now we just need to agree on the map and the age, and reconfirm the mods we're running and we should be good to start picking nations. For the record, we're looking to play in MA, and I'm currently leaning towards The Old Kingdom for this. Only mods we plan to run are Worthy Heroes 5.6NN.

    If you want a 4vs4, I'm more than willing to let Eadee to bring forth the banner of non-slav Euros this time.

    So we need just one more. Preferably a slav to keep it non discriminatory.

    Oops, I totally missed KoolNoodles post. But then there's five actually, looking at it more carefully:
    Eadee KoolNoodles Dayyālu sqeecoo and me.

    Who opts out?
