The Blitz Scenario of the Month program


Recommended Posts

Full disclosure I have been asked by the fine people over at the Blitz to help out in spreading the word about happenings over there.

The CMx2 Blitz ladder is running a 'Scenario of the Month' project and you all are invited to participate. The goal is to playtest scenarios in order to determine how well balanced they are for H2H play.

Sign up for the January scenarios of the month has started over at the blitz:

CMBN: CW Monty's Butchers

CMFI: GL In for a Pound

Forum post for signing up

If you are not already a member you will need to sign up to post. There are more details at that link but you will be paired with an opponent randomly to play out the scenario.

The blitz holds a database of all scenarios that have been played by members of the ladder. For CMFI you can see it here: http://www.theblitz.org/scenarios/Combat-Mission-x2/cmfi/action=list&game=165

From it you can see how many games have been played and what the outcomes were. For example you can see that Beyond the Belice has been played 9 times and has a pretty even split.

The goal of the scenario of the month is to get players playing some new scenarios and increase the amount of information recorded in the scenario database.

March scenarios are a bit delayed. The blitz team is doing a major update to the site. To improve security and add some ladder play features. As a result things are bit behind.

The new site goes live on March 15th and with the improved security of the site every member will have their password reset and a new default password mailed to them (along with instructions for setting to your choice). For full information on how to verify that your email is correct read this thread.

Well i "like" c3k attitude, but tend to be more reckless :)  ;)

Aye! Well done, lad, well done. Keep IanL honest. Heck, for that faux pas, I think he owes you a pbem game. You pick the map, the forces, and the victory conditions. ;)

Many people don't even know where the fporum is :ph34r:

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I'm hit, going down; all out of control.

DAMNIT - you got me.

btw IanL do you have time for a PBeM game (I have only CMBN and all expansions), since I have insulted a "Great Old One" I suppose I should give you the satisfaction of beating me publicly (not doing an AAR though they are HARD work).  pm me and we'll see what we can do.

I am honoured by your request but I am not playing my turns for my existing games at a reasonable speed - sorry everyone.  And I am behind with some activities related to [redacted] and [redacted].  Adding another game is not something I want to do right now.  Sorry.
