Hello and welcome to vicky.freeforums.org,
The main purpose of this forum is to gather people for quality multiplayer games of Victoria 2, to make things more exciting I've invented a point system that should motivate players to do their best and to develop strategies. Also have some 2v2 tournaments in mind, but those will take part later on, once we make sure we have enough players.
Of course feel free to use it for arranging casual games or simply discuss about Vicky.
For those who are new to this game there is a forum with guides guides
as well as some let's plays.LEAGUELadder
The idea is to establish a league for players who wish to compete in multiplayer games and have some fun during weekends. Players that aren't on the player list won't receive any points for playing the game.
Game ends either by time(reaching 1936) or by mutual agreement(Players agree to end the game for various reasons).*Note that games that ended before 1880 won't be counted into ladder.ORGANISATION
Once our player list
has at least 15 members I will open the thread were you can sign up for a game.
So far we have been using skype, and still use it for most of the time, however I find teamspeak much more practical when there is a large number of people. You don't have to talk on teamspeak, just be there few minutes before the game starts.
Please use forum to arrange games, suggested time is Sunday 17h GMT(Greenwich Mean Time), however if most of players agree this can be re-scheduled. If more than one quarter of players are missing and players didn't agree to end a game, it has to be postponed for later date.
Feel free to arrange unrated,casual games on forum just make a short notification in the thread name.LADDER
Points will be calculated using following formula: A-(B+C*X)=total points gained
A = Total score of your country once the game is over
B = Total score of your country in the beginning
C = Country coefficient
X = Number of years passed from the beginning (current year -1836)
*If country is Super power,Great power or Secondary power their total points gained is reduced by certain modifier(check coef. list)
Example: Playing Russia, ending year being 1936, total score 1362. In this case you would get 500 points.
(3000-(283 + 15*100))/4 = 304
For each great war that you win versus players you get 50 points!
Players that go over infamy will lose 25 points for each containment war lost!
