    TG BTS: The Terrible Twos (TTT)

    Game Has Started (reserves/subs still welcome)


    The Goal

    This is the 3rd game being hosted by the 6th Marine Division (|TG-MD6|) at TG. This time around we will be forming up teams of 2 people and really mixing things up from normal by introducing as much randomness as possible. :)

    As always, the main goal is to have fun playing one of the best strategy computer games! The server will have a 24 hour turn timer which makes the game accessible to casual gamers plus is friendly to players in all time zones. Players new to Civ4 or Civ4 multiplayer are welcome and encouraged to sign up and enjoy the experience!

    Please read the remainder of this post in its entirety.


    Expectations and Rules

    This game will last months. If you don't have the patience to stick with the game until it ends then this is not the game for you.

    Team members will be permitted to substitute for each other if desired. Beyond that, the normal substitution rules apply. A substitute player may never do turns for more than one team. Letting the timer expire or turning your nation over to the AI temporarily are always options. When letting the timer expire, please announce extended absences especially if you are involved in a war.

    TG's gaming philosophy will be in full effect. The simultaneous nature of the server means the game isn't truly turn based. It is possible to take back to back turns and gain an unfair advantage over another player, especially during a war. Rather than come up with a long list of rules all players will be expected to avoid these type of situations to the best of their ability and we'll deal with problems as they arise. All issues are expected to be raised in a timely manner, no more than 1 turn after it happened.

    The TG web site, especially this forum and private messaging (PM), are going to be the main means for players to discuss the game. Please check them on a regular basis once the game starts and remember that diplomacy is highly encouraged! A player list will be created once the game starts so that it is easy to send a PM to someone.

    You will need official BTS patch 3.17. Note: if you used Direct 2 Download to get the game then you need to get your patches from them as well.

    We will be using CivStats so that players can monitor the server status. Email notification will also be supported. More information will be provided upon game start.

    End Game

    The end of the game will be determined either by player vote or by an in game victory condition being met. In the case of the vote, the following procedure is to be followed:

    1. A vote to end the game may be called by any player but may not be called within 30 days of the previous vote (if any).

    2. The vote will be held in these forums for a period of 1 week. Every attempt will be made to get a yes or no vote from each player but in the event a player can not be reached it shall be counted as a 'yes' vote.

    3. At the end of the week, if a yes vote results in the game ending then the player with the highest score at that time will be the winner unless they concede the victory to someone else.

                      What exactly are supporting members?
                      TG is a community of gamers, and it takes $$ to provide servers and such. Supporting Members provide those $$ via monthly "dues/donations". It's not a requirement to play on a TG server, but most of us that are here consider it money well spent to support the community.
