    I do, but the idea of tag-teaming diplo with KN is hilarious. More passive-aggressive posturing than your garden variety fifteen-years old failed marriage :lol::lol::lol:

    I'm up to be the diplo guy, but remember I am not that good at the game (I have roughly a dozen under my belt, just three victories) and can't be forced to plan for team strategies or other things.

    Nor I can analyze all the summod changes, even if I like some stuff.

    That said, it seems that the call on the Nets got quite a bit of teams in:

    + Former Desura;
    + Dom3mods
    + \domg\
    + \V\anheim
    + Russians
    + RPGCodex
    + Bay12
    + Last Fantasy (what the heck are these)
    + Chinese (CHINESE?!?!?!)

    Clockworks Hounds
    (what he heck are these also) and Spacebattles maybe will get a team in. Maybe Vanheim and Domg will create a single 4chan team, who knows. SA Dominions community seems to be kinda dead, and they managed (if I trust Dom3mods posts) to drama themselves out of existance (fitting, for a bunch of somewhat assholish elitists).

    Drama is already starting with the Russians unwilling to use Summod. I don't care.

    They also seem to be considering a league and 3-4 man teams, that's lower than I expected.

    Comrade, I not too sure can play on this syka team when I play on glorious team Legend of Long Knives only to kill fellow Codexian, but mostly Grimwulf and Dayyālu.
    I mean sure. I play here too, but probably not very pleasant for you. But do not worry. It will likely be quite painful and probably not very quick either, but at least it done by someone who likes you, da?

    Ah, so there's so many teams. I think the best players should represent codexia, which likely wouldn't include me.

    Yeh, they want just three people.

    Better to send the best ones, then, such as Johannes , Grimwulf and KoolNoodles . I can keep up the diplo for now, if needed.

    Ach.

    :negative: Oh well, at least one of the champions of Codexia should keep a log and do an AAR later, so we can all bask in the glory of their defeat victory!

    Indeed, I'd be very interested in an AAR, too. Rape them tastefully!

    Excellent! I'll be rooting from the sidelines, holding a basket of freshly-severed heads (picked each day). Go Codexia!:brodex:

    I'm rehdy to pwn them all.

    I say this team needs Dayyālu and his crazy diplo skillz. He is truly frog-tongued.

    The decision is up to the leader, tho.

    Seems like the rules will allow three nations from all ages and nations can be picked once per team but no limit overall. Seems like 12 teams of EA LA Xibalba and LA Ragha are incoming.

    I read through that, and this is why big games die. Too many opinions and "what if we do this". Should just be vanilla in one age random draft, to get the game rolling. If there's not enough room in one game, make it a tournament. Easy as pie.

    The CCA admin, at least from what I've seen , is merely waiting for all the applications (I have taken the liberty of sending ours already and posting in the thread up at Dom3mods, as the 4chan threads are a mess and somewhat difficult to follow).

    The "batches" that have been posted on the thread, with fourteen random selection of all ages, seems to be rather good for me. The mod is a request from the admin, so whatevs.

    I'm not going to play, but the idea of random batches - despite the "victory percentages" and assorted engineer-like determinism- and tournament structure seems good enough (and it should bury the retardation "every one gets Ragha").

    We'll see what happens.

    EDIT: And who's going to play, now that we are here? Best players are Grimwulf , Johannes , Malakal and KoolNoodles in My Humble Opinion. I did not get if Malakal wants to play on the 'Dex or he's gonna save the 4channers.

    Dont think I actually played for team 'dex yet so I may try with you guys if you want me. I played many times with domg and vanheim teams already.

    Hm, yeah, I don't like non-vanilla and overlapping nations setup, but what can you do. Much better players have applied so I guess I'm sitting this one out, but I'd love to see an AAR/turn files :)

    I don't. :M

    I may have too many games going anyways now that the cold war game finally started. Can you even play dominions Dreaaaaaddd? Thought you were trying to get a toaster up and running.

    Yes, by hooking up enough wires to my borsh mix, I am capable of playing dominions again.

    I'll pass this one, I thought about it but team games, especially huge one like this, will take enormous time to play properly. I think I'll enjoy better joining some smaller games instead.

    You're not here to play the damn game properly man, for heaven's sake! You're here for the honor and privilege of killing and humiliating 'dexian other, very specific, forum scum and basking in the eternal glory of your righteous victory!
