    Gefuehle, wo man schwer beschreiben kann

    A former thug last night warned the game is in the grip of a new breed of ultra-violent casuals — as we reveal pretenders aren’t using astral powers to ban the yobs. Fans are expected to clash with the police -- dubbed the "The Derby Of Eternal Enemies"

    Two teams, 10 players. Hooligan Trash vs. Police Violence. Again, just as Season 5 but, you guessed it: LA! People who post are treated as signed up.

    Completely unrelated video to give this post proper size:


    -------------------------
    How we will pick:

    Step 1: 2 Teams will coalesce from ten players, 5 in each. I hope we will be able to do that without my paternal guidance. The team chose who will play their pretender themselves.

    Step 2: The picking. The two teams go through phases of banning nations from the pool and picking nations for their team. Valid Bans and Picks are announced by the pretenders in this thread. After all 10 nations have been selected, each player picks their nation from the 5 their pretender has chosen.

    Order is as follow:
    Ban Phase 1: Team 1, Team 2, Team 1, Team 2
    Pick Phase 1: Team 1, Team 2, Team 2, Team 1
    Ban Phase 2: Team 1, Team 2, Team 1, Team 2
    Pick Phase 2: Team 2, Team 1, Team 2, Team 1
    Ban Phase 3: Team 2, Team 1
    Pick Phase 3: Team 2, Team 1

    Nope for me.
    Two games at once is what I feel best with.

    Unit reporting for duty. Decline 4 is going south, and I feel I'm not long for that world.

    Better secure a place in another era of Decline.


    I am triggered by the German in the OP, though. I demand a rewrite with slavic and romance languages for inclusiveness

    Dear raw,

    let's make a recruitment thread on Strategy or on the Playground, can we? No one is going to get in if we limit ourselves to the MP subforum.

    Then we can ignore it after we get enough players, of course.

    :lol:

    ā. it's not that difficult, and the automatic recognition of the 'Dex should help. I am not dayofthetiger, so?

    Better yet, tag people who play Dominions here on 'Dex. Raw's tag list is... sigh. Why even bother with words?

    Lizzurd
    mondblut
    Helly
    panda
    Cromwell
    DakaSha

    And you might want to tag those who raw tried to tag in op-post. For some reason, I never receive alerts from his tagging.

    No, I won't sign in even though I posted in this thread.

    Do you want to play or you are here again to bribe some poor Mod into merging all the threads? "We can't afford several threads in the MP subforum! It's confusing!"

    Oh, I can imagine that. Disciples game! One team of 20 players, including all Codexian Dom players, vs another team of tyrannosaurus rex alone. I would even sign up, if that was the case.

    Edit: actually, I want the moder who did the merging in the first place sing up in second team as well.

    to be honest, I'd rather play a disciple game with more (like 4) teams. With two teams - as we've seen in Decline4 - once a team gains advantage and defeats 1-2 disciples, it's effectively game over. Plus there's no diplomacy. With more teams you can at least ally against each other.

    The big positive side of having 2 teams, is also the lack of diplomacy. It makes turns go two, three times faster.

    'cause you are a douchebag, shiposting troll. Again, if you are here to play, I welcome you as a fellow player and a possible team mate. This is a gaming forum, for a relaxing hobby.

    If you are here to shitpost, I'll gain my first Ignore.

    Choose wisely.


    I'm ok for smaller teams.

    I acquired the game in a sale and have been studying it. I think it's exactly my type of things.

    I have to agree here. Not that I think there is anything wrong with 1 on 1 games but I think it's more of a blitz game thing (which I have to try one of these days). PBEM is going to be long and drawn out either way. Might as well make it more interesting.

    With that said do we even have material for 4 team captains? Malakal is too cool for us or disciples games, Grimwulf is too busy with his new larping game. There is Lizzurd I guess but he's valiantly subbing for me in the horribly unfun decline2 so I don't think poor fella needs more shit to deal with atm. It would be pretty sad if on one hand we had team Johannes and on the other teams lead by such titans of dominions like raw or myself.... I guess we could just gang up on the one good player.

    Perhaps I will host a shorter game once some of the more long running ones have concluded.

    Since decline5 ended so soon and decline3 is so slow, I withdraw my withdrawal and want to join this one, too.
    Count me in.

    Let's do 4 teams of 3. And split the "experienced" players into each team. Or at least have each team have one. And on top of that let's add in some Lvl2 thrones(Lvl 3, while cool, can be a little imbalanced. Like +1 Awe).
