Same problem like GunChleoc, not sure if I can keep it up due to extremly difficult job and private conditions, but would really like to take part (thanks Worldsavior for the nudge!)

you always have the option of giving forfait a turn or two if you can't make it. As long as you announce it in advance, there is no penalty associated. Except losing the game, of course.

Thanks. And how would the second phase look like? A single collectors match on Sun of Fire could be fair.

And in case there will be more than 19 participants: How would the additional round look like?

@ everyone:

Anyone here who would vote against the Crossriver map? The starting positions look very different, so I doubt that it is fair, and artifacts could make that even more unfair.

while I know that I should pick those up, I don't like doing it because I don't like anticipating something that is unlikely to happen. Feels like selling the bear's skin before killing the bear, if that allegory exists in other languages. I know, it's a bit irrational. Still, I won't declare the possible 6th round unless we get close to the number.

I checked it, and they seemed balanced; not symmetrical, but similar availability of all resources within a similar radius.

On the other hand, if you confirm that it is unbalanced, I will trust your expertise

I would like to participate for the first time. But I am on holiday over the first 2 weeks with a big uncertainty whether I would have acces to Internet and my computer. If this is not a problem you might sign me in.

The second phase is unlikely to happen? If you say so...

Okay

I'd have to do more playtesting before I find an obvious imbalance. But as I wrote in the other thread: It's complicated to find good positions for the artifacts...
