Hotseat game status: - Sicily has won on turn 115



Players (in turn order): (with links to write-ups) plus some other links where I consider it to be funny

Selifator: England
Kilij Ae Varyl: Spain

Venice - FACTION DESTROYED

Me Sicily

EoJ: Turks
I think I might have referenced this video before in the first crusade
This might be more appropriate... Looks like I was right there

Rankings - Turn 101



Rankings - Turn 69



Subs
Glacier_Girl played as sub for England - T29, T30
- played as sub for Sicily - T33

Monty501 played as sub for Spain T30, T 31
JuBuOrangie played as sub for Venice - T31 to T40
Lloydsgamble played as sub for Venice T41 to 42
Brutiangodofrock played as sub for Venice T43 to T65
Zsmart one played as sub for Turks T50 to T65
Hashoosh played as sub for Turks T64


Rules to note:

No 'exploiting' of any kind (e.g. putting forts on resources and stocking them with merchants) nor reloading your go to get a better result.

If I don't hear from a player within 4 days of receiving a turn, I will try to find a sub to take the turn.

If you don't expect to be able to play within 4 days, just let me know - extensions are fine (preferably not too often though please). I'll send a reminder email after a couple of days as a prompt.

If you expect an extended absence, e.g. not being able to play for over a week, you're invited to arrange a sub, giving them instructions etc so your turn is played as you'd like it to be.

An 'un-arranged' sub has the option to take over after 2 weeks or 10 turns The '2 weeks' here looks a little low, but the turn limit looks high?

I'm not sure really. I was talking about England there. Maybe the Hamster plan is invading a crippled Venice and taking the remaining 10 territories required for Victory Conditions. At least i think he's at 35

I'll donate the settlements "Kiss" and "My ass"?

Also, Sub alert- I'll be gone on the 22nd. I need a sub that can be trusted to do a few tasks while I'm gone.

I've not heard from Hashoosh in the last few days, given it's on Venice's turn, I've asked Mercenary to stand-in as sub. If there's no word from Hashoosh (or Brutian) in the next day, it'll be over to Merc. Huzzah for helpfulness

ok, received save, just installing the game and dling the patch and retrofit and ill play it, hopefully done by the end of the day (11:39am atm)

Edit: minor setback, kingdoms doesn't want to install, will keep trying but doesn't look good atm (12:33pm)

Edit: major RAGE time, said medieval 2 didn't install properly, noticed a fair bit of missing data, uninstalled it and tried to reinstall and it says its still installed. i think i'm going to have to sit this turn out sorry, but this is getting way to annoying, and last time this happened it took a long time to fix.

This is my sig, don't diss it. It's the best sig in the world.

Please copy this into your sig if you just want to have a random comment in there.

i'll play it tonight.
and by play i mean weep softly into my pillow as venice is destroyed, but hey!

edit: ok, e-mail has been checked, so the negotiations failed eh? time to throw everything and anything at england.
and i mean ANYTHING

has swarbs got the turn, cause that's what it looks like.

Swarbs has the save, but I've no idea if he's played it at all - assuming he hasn't then I'd be quite happy if you want to play the Venice turn (since you're hopefully taking it over properly, at least for a month or two) and then we can use Swarbs to play the Spanish turns when EoJ is out.

Swarbs had played it and now I have a turn again, huzzah! We'll have to sort out something for turn 68 in advance

So, Zsmart, are you respecting your ally's borders or going for a nice greedy land-grab?

I'll try and get around to updating the ranking charts in the OP this evening to bring in turn 67's scrolls. No surprises though, the Turks are galloping away at the top.

Just as an update, I've had an email back from Zsmart since sending the save to him - but no word on whether the turn has or will soon be played. I'll refresh this when I know more - if nothing by tomorrow I'll look for a(nother) sub.
Hashoosh to play the Turks for a turn and Swarbs to cover Venice again? That'd leave someone new covering spain while EoJ is away. Hopefully Zsmart is about and just not wanting to let me know what's going on...

Righto, ta. As a further update - Selifator has been a bit delayed (including something that means he's had to reinstall the game), I'm hopeful the save will be passed on today or tomorrow though.

On the note of passing on saves to Spain, EoJ is on holiday so Swarbs or Hashoosh will be asked to play the turn (I'd forgotten to get that sorted out - tum tee tum).

The game has been toddling along quite well - although it's had an accidental couple of week pause.

I'm not sure if you were aware, but the Turks have had a change in ownership again with Zsmart having taken over after Bandito disappeared.

They're still leading the various ranking charts, mostly by quite a healthy margin. It looks to be building up to quite an interesting conflict and we'll have to see how that goes.

Currently the game hasn't moved for a while because EoJ has been on holiday and whilst I thought I'd got a sub lined up - I hadn't. Oops.

After that the turn will move to Venice and again whilst I thought I had a sub lined up (everyone having abandoned that sinking ship) I've not heard back from that person.
Venice is fairly much a gonner so if I get agreement then it may be better for me to load up the venice turns and simply hit 'end turn' without looking at anything. That's probably not tonnes worse than the AI could do.
If anyone does want to play the Venice turns then they're welcome to do so, of course.

I'll try a bit further to get a Venice sub in place - if nothing by the end of tomorrow, Venice will be very inactive (i.e. I'll just end it's turn without any actions) and we'll just carry on.

edit- Venice skipped and Sicily played...

Righto - an update worthy of a double post (possibly)

I've had no reply from Zsmart one for some time now and so am looking for a substitute player for the Turks. I've emailed a group of the usual candidates (people who played on the other hotseats before they vanished) but have had no interest expressed (in fact I had no emails back at all, even to say "no").
I don't know where Zsmart is so this might actually be the chance to take over a major faction (leading all of the ranking scrolls) rather than a brief bit of assistance for us.

If anyone would like to take the Turkish turn, or knows of someone who would/might, please let me know.

Back from summer camp! and lo, this is not a camp with internet or power....


sorry about the short notice i couldn't squeeze the email in at the end of july, possibly procrastination, possibly not?

Anyways, i take full blame if anyone is mad at me for the no notice. I assume Venezia is finished then?

Ah well, i wont be gone again until (canadian) thanksgiving and/or christmas. So if you need a sub, noted that turks are taken, ill be available.

We're having difficulty with Monty's installation/reinstallation of patch 1.5 - if anyone has any experience of how to patch the New Zealand gold version (which looks like the UK version - but the UK gold patch doesn't recognise the disc) then help would be useful.
On that basis, we might discuss who takes the Turks forward (you could even power-share if you wanted once/if Monty gets things working). Venice could do with a new owner but it so close to being crushed that it may not be worth it.
