    There are very minor differences between the difficulty levels. As such to get any effect from changing the levels i feel we should go all the way and go with deity...

        Just a reminder the poll ends this coming Friday. As it looks right now we've got a tie between Monarch and Emperor in which case we'll go with the latter.

        If you want to change your vote just PM me or post here.

          You really need to do a one vote only runoff between monarch, emperor, and diety, as 110% have voted for those.

          These multiple votes IMO are hard to interpret ... since it ranks a second choice equal to a first choice, which I think confuses the issue ...

            He he! Just because your pick is coming in third :P

            I think this is a good method of choosing. In fact I suggested it in another thread :P Unlike in sp the effect of the difficulty level will not be huge as there are no AIs. So most people could cope with a range of levels and certainly play one or two away from their normal level.

            But not everyone is a Diety level player and I suspect those that are used to that level will be at enough of advantage anyway. I suspect even with no AIs it plays a lot differently than say Prince or Monarch just on the health/happiness caps alone.

            The problem with just one vote is it makes you pick options you don't really care for just to stop the one you really don't want. You can't afford to waste your vote on the third or fourth placed option.

            Here you can vote for all those that you don't mind playing on. And for those of us not usually playing on Diety that is quite a few choices :)

              I think that Hop summed it up quite nicely. Being able to select more than one preference makes the whole voting process much more flexible. And more importantly, it gives me a good enough feel for what the players preferences are that I can go ahead and make the call as to what should be used in the game without beating the issue to death with multiple polls. ;)

                There are very little differences between noble and deity... check the links provided... Difference between emperor and deity is 5% extra distance maintenance, 20% extra unit maintenance cost(1 gold instead of .8 gold per unit), 10% extra tech cost, 10% chance to pop barbs from huts and 10 turns longer before barbs start spawning(since there are no AI they'll just spawn warriors for a long time though...).

                  Well, if you are not really going to vote your true preference in a vote once poll, then there is no point to it, I agree.

                  If the results were hidden until done, a vote once poll would make sense perhaps.

                  The multi-vote poll can be effective in narrowing the field, but if two choices are close, it can't be decisive. But apparently Bernout only needs to narrow, and he will be the decider ... lol

                  And don't worry ... I am happy to play whatever level you guys want to ...
