January 16, 2007: New Ring Games: "Many" SeriesOur Holiday games have ended; congrats to Ralpher for finishing Holiday-6 with 101 worlds!
On Wednesday the 17th at 11am CST, we'll open a new series of games. The "Many" games are only for people who played in Last, and they are divided according to your current MP. (Which, except for the Holiday winners, is the only MP anyone has.)
This is a test of our new join code, which will allow us to limit games by experience and other factors. Many-1 is for Commanders who have 0 or 1 MP, Many-2 is for those who have 2 MP, and so on, up to Many-9 (which will admit those with 9 or more). All these are 20-slot ring games, except for Many-9, which is a 36-slot ring. You are only eligible for the game that matches your MP total; if it fills before you get in, whoops, sorry.
All these will run 30 ticks, one per day, and will be scored on the point system. (After watching the way Holiday played out, we think that a 20-tick game using the classic system is weighted too much toward the fast races; the slow-but-strong ones and the economic powerhouses don't get the chance to develop.)
The Many games will start ticking on Saturday. Many-1 will tick at 7pm CST, Many-2 at 7:30, and so on.
For those of you who weren't in Last, we will be setting up the "Many More" games for you. Check the lobby for them!
