Online-1on1 CUP: Discuss the Settings here

Post by BF_Napoleon » Tue Aug 22, 2006 12:33 pm

SWORD of the STARS - 1on1 Cup


What settings will we play in the 1on1 Demo Cup?


Hey everybody! As i allready pointed out, we, your Ladder Site for SWORD of the STARS is going to host the 1on1 Demo Cup to start into the 1st Season.

Before we start we should discuss the Settings to have a good Event for all Players.

What do you need to join the Tourney?

You just need a FREE Ladder Account at and at least 1 instant messenger like AOL, ICQ, MSN etc...

You can get a free account here:

Here are the Settings:

Amount of Players: 2 or 4
Star Map Shape: Sphere or any other
Star Density: 16-40


Strategic Turn Lenght: x Secs
Combat Turn Lenght: x Secs

Random Encounters: on/off

Initial Treasure: 5000 - 1 Billion
Initial Colonies: 1-6
Initial Technologies: 0-6
Economic Efficiency: 50% - 150%
Resarch Efficiency: 50% - 150%

So what are your wishes? To add my 50cents, we should better play a low star density to make the games shorter and finish them...

Lets discuss!

unfortunately, there's no choice in the Star Map Shape option. It must be a Sphere, as that is the only shape available in the demo.

Number of players? That's difficult to answer. To keep the games short and sweet, I'd say go for 2-player games.

Star density? At least 20, because more planets means less probability of wildly unfair planet distribution. On the other hand, more planets also means more probability of games taking long times.

To keep things as fair as possible, start both players with at least 3 colonies. This way it guarantees each player 3 good colonies, and unfair random planet distribution matters less.
A good signature is a concise and original summary of personality. This is not a good signature.
