As I already said in the thread of the current tournament, I'd be really intrigued about giving this map a try. Now, after some planing and training (yes, I only had played the campaign so far) I'm confident that I can stand my ground against a human opponent. Probably. What is worrying me are the parts I can not plan or train properly.

So, would someone be interested in a match on this map? I'd be available on Friday from about 8 am till 9 pm CET or on my weekends (Sunday and Monday) at the same time. The other days might be possible, too, from about 3 pm to 9 pm but it depends on whether I'm not to tired or exhausted. I can't give a guarantee anyway since depression is a bitch and I can never know which days she might slaughter my motivation and confidence.

I am interested but have time only on weekdays. So Mondays in the evening would be good. Just give a date and time and i will try to be there. We may have to use Fjords 1.2 then to not get into the 'no Fish trap' face-smile.png

the "no fish" thing was already fixed in 1.1.

1.2 gives everyone the same chance to block the path with a fortress on the opposite side

Oh, I wasn't aware that there is a newer version than 1.1. Now I have to adapt my plan.

It just so happened that janus replied to my pm just before kaputtnik threw his hat in the ring. Now I have two potential opponents (probably three, because it seems I misinterpreted WorldSavior's pm). I wasn't prepared for this, it never occurred to me that I might have to choose. Gotta find a solution.

We haven't set a time and they haven't replied since. Lets just wait some more, I forgot that I haven an appointment this Monday evening anyway. But chances are that I could play during the rest of the week.

I have agreed with janus to play tomorrow (Sunday) at 15:00 pm. Just in case someone wants to join and watch.

I have one question left: In case I'll host, what exactly is the meaning of the Servername, you have to specify when setting up a game?

This name should describe the kind of name you intent to play, e.g. "No0815_vs_Janus", "FreeForAll" or "PublicTraining". Just do not keep the default "unnamed" face-smile.png

Ah, thanks! Kind of obvious now that you said it face-tongue.png

Lets see how this game turns out, afterwards I might feel ready to play on any other map without much of pre-planing face-smile.png

I'd like to add another question: Are there any requirements for hosting a game? I didn't give it much of a thought so far since it isn't mentioned in the wiki and I can run Widelands at x10 speed without problem, though on the other hand it occasionally even lags a bit at normal speed. My laptop is pretty dated and rather weak.
