*** SC PBEM LEAGUE - Has Ended ***

Recommended Posts

Anyone interested in a tourney for this league?

Needs to be a modified scenario, something short.

One idea I had is to use the standard 39 scenario with modified victory conditions: Axis must take UK by the end of 41 to win. Play balance could be addressed with MPPs

How about activate all the countries, dividing them up to give equal MPPs per turn to each side. Then with the editor give each player the same force mix or a MPP amount to build, allowing them a free setup of the units. Save the scenario and send it to the opposition for their free deployment, save and start a war that last 2 years, one with the most MPPs/per turn at the end is winner.

I am looking for opponents too. I am relatively new to SC, but by no means new to strategic war games and thrashed the AI on the hardest settings the first SC game I ever played, having only read the manual. Nevertheless, some of the people here sound really good so prehaps an non-expert opponent is better. I may be able to play TCP/IP depending on what ports need to be open, I can defintely PBEM smile.gif

my email is nort0135@d.umn.edu

please make sure to have an appropriate subject heading or it will be deleted

Lots of players in the league. This is just all those that have at least one win. This is the win/loss record and the rating.

You go up in rank when you beat someone higher but when Kurt lost some games it must have been against some low ranked players that moved up but was to far behind to pass by Kurt. Kurt got his Nr one spot when there was very few players in the league and have not played so many games since.

There is other ways to see how good a player is...win/loss, skill level and # of higher ranked players you fought with.

hey Curry - my emails to you keep returning so thought Id contact you here. Thanks for running the League and you are right when you say new players have to lose a few games at the start. I used to be top of the 'losing streak table'. I hope you will keep running the League when SC2 comes out because Im sure Im not alone in believing that war games are played on hexes. And a question - how long does a PBEM game continue and is it a draw if time runs out?

1. The List is getting so long that you may wish to email just a part of the list. But dont be afraid to send out an email asking for a game. Its still the best way to find a game

2. Remember to agree on houserules before you start.

3. We have gone over 600 matches played and have 126 players signed up.

Greetings fellow SC war gamers.

Here is an email on two topics. But first special greetings to new players. We are always glad that new players join the league and I hope you will find and play a game. You can check out the thread on our sticky that is at the top of the battlefront forum. There is enough information in that to help you but if you need more help finding a game drop me an email.

1) RULES AND SUCH FOR THE LADDER. First please know that the SC PBEM league was simply set up so that people could have a place to record wins and losses. The main purpose of the league was to build a base of players to find a game via email. There is of course going to be some competion when you have a league but the email system does not suit itself for majoy competion. So above all remember this league is for fun.

Many have asked me how does the ladder work. Here is the simple version for an answer.

* When you win the person who has lost the game or match needs to record the win. They need your league name to do so. * When you win your first game you are recorded in the standings. You need to win one game before you show up with a record. * When you win a game you move up the ladder 50%. That means if you are the 10th person on the ladder and you defeat the #1 player you move up half way between 10 and 1 which would be the 5th space. * If you have not played a match in 8 months or 240 days you will be deleted from the league. * If you are in the top ten and have not played a match within 60 days you will drop 3 spaces. I have just changed this. It was set at 90 and I thought I would move it up to 60 days giving the many new players that play a lot a better chance to move up. Especially since competion is not the number one goal of the league.

Rememember there are better ways to see how good a player is then the position they are in on the ladder. For instance, how many games have they played? If they have played a lot of games they will usually be a dependable player. What is their rating and wins verses losses. This will show how good the player is perhaps better than anything else. For instance Rannug has the highest rating and for a good reason, he is a very good player. Terif also is undefeated for a good reason, he is the best player in any league. I hope this helps those that have asked me about this.

2. Cheating. There is or was a recent thread on the battlefront forum about an incident where it looks like a player was cheating in a pbem game. I am glad to say that player who is suspected of cheating is not in our PBEM league. Mistakes can happen so be careful before saying anyone is cheating. I even started a game with the wrong file once, but if you see how many games I have played and started it can happen. If you suspect someone is cheating you may ask other players or even list it on the battlefront forum without giving the name. I have suspected cheating in some games. What I do is resign and even give the win but never play that player again. I have played so many games that I can tell when tech increases come too often and when combat results are just too good to be true time and time again. However, unless its so evident I cannot be 100% sure and I will not accuse someone falsely so I just resign and move on. PBEM is not a secure system yet. I hope the creator of SC in SCII will help us make it more secure.

I hope everyone is playing in at least one match. Remember above all - have fun, win with respect and die with honor. Best to all Curry

Wow, I seem to be at the top of the leaderboard, how in hell did this happen?

Starting in September I will increase the number of active games I am playing in order to give top ten players a chance to take over the number one spot.

I can likely take on another game or two now if you are willing to put up with delayed responses...

Fire me an email challenge and I will add you to my queue.

Also willing to take on tutorial games if Yoda's classes are full!

glad to see the league is so active!
