Field of Glory - Medieval Competition
« on: January 05, 2021, 09:18:58 PM »
Hi all,

Paolo at Slitherine has kindly agreed to sponsor a FOG - Medieval competition to start on 4th February when the game is officially released.

If you're interested, let me know on this thread.

I intend to run this as a league competition.

When I have the numbers for the competition I will contact Paolo and arrange for you to get your Steam codes to participate.

BTW, I have a preview copy of the game and I can honestly say that the graphics are really NICE. The game mechanics are very similar to FoG 2 and is a very solid game.

This should be a lot of fun. O0

Will this be a DLC to FoG2 or a complete separate game ?

What sort of competition? How many games are we talking? Time frame? I'm guessing it would be using the PBEM++ thing?
 As a long time DBA and DBM and HoTT player I like FoG II and am certainly interested in FoG Medieval.
I'm interested but want to make sure I can do it.

If you've played FOG2 you will have no problem at all. The mechanics are virtually the same as far as I can tell.

I have only just started recruiting to the competition, but I think this will be done on a league basis if we get enough players. 0 points for a loss, 1 for a draw and 2 for a Win.

Are you in?

I'm in, but you won't need to supply a Steam key.  I'll be purchasing it.

I'll give it a shot. I've played FoG II some, but make no claim to any great skill at it lol!
Haven't tried it vs human opponents yet so that should be interesting.

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.

I'll close off recruitment on 3rd and ask Paolo for your copies. I'll then set up pairings.

I remember playing a Slitherine FoG competition where everyone used the same army of their choice throughout the league. Is that something you'd enjoy, or to select a different army each time you play a new opponent?

I guess if we can choose each time we'll get to see more of the game and possibly more interesting or unusual matchups ;)

Either way works for me, really.

Thanks again for setting things up.

I agree with Bardolph - choice is preferable.

Just a reminder, I will be purchasing my copy, so don't get a free one for me.

How quickly should turns be played? I am very much interested, but I don't want to stall.
