LOL!  ;D

The sponsorship works this way...

Slitherine have kindly offered to provide gratis copies of the game via Steam codes for participants who have not already got the game.

Slitherine have also kindly offered to provide prizes for the winner and the runner up.

As with all our sponsors, I am very grateful for them for facilitating the competition as comprehensively as they do. :clap:

On a good day, our legislature has the prestige of a drunk urinating on a wall at 4am and getting most of it on his shoe. On a good day  ::) Steelgrave

It's kind of silly to investigate whether or not a Clinton is lying. That's sort of like investigating why the sky is blue. Banzai_Cat

I assume it'll be a timed license of sorts?
No. Like our other sponsored competitions, Slitherine is generously providing the full game for the player to keep as part of their sponsorship.

The only good faith obligation for the player is to compete in the competition.

I would like to be in, but I am not sure if I have enough time...

I assume we pair off against the next name down on the list in our Division?  I'm in Division 2, so that means I'd be paired off against Bardolph.  Boggit-One question: Are these paired battles, ie, both sets of players play each side of a single battle, or is it just one battle?

You can simultaneously play everyone in your division, I'd reckon. Otherwise this comp will take a year or so. :)

@Boggit: wow that's mightly generous of Slitherine! The price for winning is then all upcoming DLC for free I presume? 😂
Seriously though, insanely generous.  :hug:

Very generous of Slitherine, but I decided to buy a copy anyways.

Looking forward to the beatdown!  It's been ages since I've played FoG2 so I'm gonna get whooped.   :knuppel2:  :buck2:
A War of a Madman's Making - a text-based war planning and political survival RPG

It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

For everone in Division 2, I will be unable to begin the competition, until sometime next week.  My apologies.

Hey everyone, just joined the forum while looking for discussions about this game.  I played a little bit of the previous title but have more interest in medieval history, so that this edition really grabbed me.  I'd love to join this if it's not too late.  I've already got the game (and have spent 6 of the last 8 hours playing it).

Grim.Reaper

Is that a different grim reaper in division 2?  I never signed up if that is me....

Bardolph

Checking in from Div 2. I've heard from Tripoli but am still awaiting a DM with the key from Boggit I guess.
Perfectly happy to play the other Div 2 folks simultaneously if that helps things proceed.

You play a single (different) battle with everyone in your Division. If there are six players in your Division you play five battles. It sounds a lot, but these games play fairly quickly, especially if you play all your games contemporaneously.

The three winners go onto the semi finals, and the winners of those go to the finals.

No problem. I misread Grim Reaper's intentions, so please substitute for him in Division 2.

My error. I misinterpreted that you wanted in. :-[

I've invited Under_score to take your slot in Division 2. If it is the case that you want in, then no problem. We can still include you at this stage.

I'm still waiting on an email from Paolo. I have put in a request for keys to facilitate those who don't have the game. As soon as I see the email from Paolo with a key for you, you can be sure it will be forwarded onto you.
