So, will this be a 2v2v2 or humans against AI? Or human teams vs one AI blob or human ffa against AI teams? The options are legion!  L:-)

I'd be fine with six humans on a team vs all remaining AI, maybe divided into roughly equal-size teams.

I'd be up for another Dominions game.   :bd:

Thought the last one I participated in (Dom 3) ended too prematurely.   :'(  Was the only one I'd been in, so I'm curious to see how an MP game ultimately turns out.

I'd be fine with compstomp as well. I mean all human team vs equal size AI team.
But I'm fine with any of the aforementioned suggestions, if they are the preferred options.

Let's just get the game going :)

Heck I'd be fine with the other kind of comstomp, with the AI team outnumbering us! (Though I'd rather have multiple AI teams against us and each other.)

Random nation sounds in the spirit of the game but equally happy to choose if others want too.

The main problem with a random nation is that players often design pretenders to work with a specific faction.

Not that this will bother me; just pointing it out to remind players of implications: if you choose to go random, build a pretender who can work with anything.

Hmm thats a good point, Jason.

Better to just choose one. It also prevents you ending up with a water nation.

Fixed.  >:D

Hm, downloading my Gamersgate copy -- not a Steam code this time. Patches will be manual.  :P

Okay, are we going with Disciples to a king-pretender, or are we all basically teaming independently (so that we may accidentally incur friendly-fire effects)?

This makes a difference in what kind of pretender we need to make: a pretender; a pretender who will have disciples; or a disciple.

We are talking about teaming up and the only way to enforce it in-game is by going Disciple mode.
We can, however, all take a seperate team and all have full-Pretender Gods, but this will mean that the game will treat us as enemies no matter what kind of agreement we make with eachother here on the forum.
If people are new to this, perhaps its best to just team up in-game to avoid fraticide. :)

mkivcs, Beowulf, Nefaro, jamus34 please state your preferred nations, if any.
