Sign-ups for season 5 (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AvmG4SoJhEYbdFgtbjN3VFE4OUxQTEtSLWVoVmJGX 3c&hl=en_GB#gid=20) are now open! If you would like to take part please do three things:

1) Add yourself to this list.
(https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AvmG4SoJhEYbdFgtbjN3VFE4OUxQTEtSLWVoVmJGX 3c&hl=en_GB#gid=19)
2) PM your email address to me (optional, but it will be very useful if I need to give you a nudge). I will not disclose it to anyone else. If you have previously PMd your address to me in an earlier season you don't need to send it again, but if you're not sure then please re-send it.

3) Click here (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/forums/profile.php?do=editoptions) to go to the RPS forum settings and edit the 'Private Messaging' section so that you get an email and/or a popup when someone (e.g. me) sends you a PM.

Season 5 will begin on Monday 05 December and will last two weeks, so please don't sign up if you expect to be unavailable during that period. You will probably be required to play between 4 and 6 games (division sizes are subject to the number of players). Rules are mostly as in previous seasons, and will be posted later this week.

New and old players are all welcome! No experience required, and weaponry will be provided. Sign up! (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AvmG4SoJhEYbdFgtbjN3VFE4OUxQTEtSLWVoVmJGX 3c&hl=en_GB#gid=19)

Which game was that? If your opponent forfeited you should have been given the full three points (unless I made a mistake somewhere).

I think a mistake was made reporting the results of my game with tpiece last time. We both lost 4 men each but the game listed me as the victor (At least my end), it was reported as a draw.

No, you were given a default 2-0 win over Labbes (as was everyone else except Lagnut, as you mentioned). In total you had four wins, one draw (against tpiece) and one defeat (against Urthran), for a total of 13 points. Lagnut won all his games apart from his defeat to you, so he had 15 points.

If you're interested, all of the individual match scores are in the 'S4 raw data' tab.

Sorry, I edited my previous, was something entirely different

WombatDeath
01-12-2011, 12:11 AM
Oh yes, I remember now. When I was reviewing the unreported games I decided that a draw was the fairest result given that both remaining men were killed in turn 7 (I should probably have mentioned that at the time). In any case, you and Lagnut will both be promoted for season 5.

Also, Icebrain has once again generously offered to provide a copy of his advanced tactics guide (http://icebrain.net/guides/game/advanced-mechanics-tactics-multiplayer/)as a prize in season 5. This will be awarded to the lowest-ranked active player in the bottom division at the end of the season.

I think I'm going to give it a miss this time, I was starting to find it a bit of a struggle to work up the motivation last season.

Cheers for all the organizing WombatDeath, hopefully I'll work up the motivation for a future season.

We've got 22 players for season 5, which is splendid. Still room for more if anyone's recently bought the game and wants some friendly opposition - sign-ups will close on Sunday.

Season 5 has now begun! This time we have five divisions of seven players each, and the new players have been added to the league in the order in which they registered their participation. You can now start issuing challenges and playing your matches - click here to see the league tables (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AvmG4SoJhEYbdFgtbjN3VFE4OUxQTEtSLWVoVmJGX 3c&hl=en_GB#gid=20).

Important: each player has the responsibility of challenging every player above him/her in the appropriate division. That means that, for instance, Rodeoclown in division one has to issue two challenges: to echodb and ComradePenguin.

If you are unsure who you should be challenging, look at the second tab on the spreadsheet (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AvmG4SoJhEYbdFgtbjN3VFE4OUxQTEtSLWVoVmJGX 3c&hl=en_GB#gid=21). You need to issue a challenge for each game in which you are Player 1. If you're still unsure, post in this thread or send me a PM.

Game rules and league procedures

1) Each game must conform to the following settings:

Mode: Dark Elimination
Map type: symmetrical
Turn limit: eight turns
Turn duration: five seconds per turn (i.e. 5000 milliseconds - this is the default setting)
Visibility: vis at time zero
Team strength: four men per player
Server: UK1

Any game that does not conform to these rules will be void and must be replayed. Please see the next post if you're not sure how to create a game with the correct settings, and post in this thread if you are in any doubt.

2) After creating each game on server UK1, the challenger must state the challenge in this thread. Format: "[Player1] has challenged [Player2] in game [game ID]".

Example: "ColOfNature has challenged WombatDeath in game 123456".

3) After each game has been completed, the player accepting the challenge must report the result in this thread. Standard format: "[Victorious player] has defeated [defeated player] in game [game ID] by [number of men killed by victorious player] men killed to [number of men killed by defeated player]".

Example: "ColOfNature has defeated WombatDeath in game 123456 by 4 men killed to 2".

In the event of a draw, the format is "[Challenging player] and [challenged player] have drawn in game [game ID], killing [number of men killed per player] men each."

Example: "ColOfNature and WombatDeath have drawn in game 123456, killing 3 men each".

I will update the spreadsheet with the result of each game.

4) Challengers may start issuing their challenges from today (Monday 05 December). All games must be completed by the end of Sunday 18 December GMT.

5) We're all reasonable people, probably, so some flexibility will be applied. If you're going to be on holiday, or dead, or otherwise restricted in your availability, please post in this thread and we will try to accommodate you as far as is reasonably practical.

6) Try to start your games in the first week and finish them early. Players leaving it to the last minute to issue a challenge or submit orders risk forfeiting the game. If any game is unfinished by the deadline I will use my discretion and award points to one, both or neither player, depending on the circumstances.

7) At the end of the season the final results will be used to determine the divisions for season 5, according to a fiendishly cunning set of rules which I will arbitrarily put together at some point.

8) Any circumstances not catered for in these rules will be handled according to some combination of common sense, consensus, whimsy and iron-fisted authoritarianism.

Finally, a polite reminder that although PMing your email address to me is optional, it will make organisation easier so please consider doing so if you haven't already.

Good luck!

How to create a game with the correct settings

This may be useful to those newer to Frozen Synapse:

1) Log in to server UK1.
2) Click the 'Multiplayer' button at the top of the screen
3) Click 'Create a game'
4) Set the game mode to Dark Extermination
5) Click the 'Advanced setup' button
6) Ignore the scary warning and click 'OK'
7) Click the 'Generate symmetrical' button
8) If you get a silly map, or if you don't have four men per side, go back to (7) and repeat until you're happy
9) Click the 'Submit' button
10) Ensure that the 'Game mode' is set to 'Extermination'
11) Ensure that the 'Vis mode' is set to 'Vis at time zero'
12) Ensure that the 'Turn limit' is set to 8 (and the 'Turn length' to 5000, which is the default)
13) Enter your opponent's username
14) Enter 'RPS Dark Extermination League' or something suitable so that your opponent knows it's for this league
15) Click the 'Submit' button
16) Take your first turn and note the challenge in this thread, using the format in point 2 of the post directly above this one.

agentorange and prooples, I apologise, I forgot to set the game to be with 4 men per team, I will rechallenge with it set correctly.

In the games that started with only 3 men each I've set mine to not engage, so feel free to wipe them out for the easiest win ever!

AH FOR FUCK SAKE.

I messed up every one of these except for the remade one against AgentOrange. I didn't notice that you wanted them to be set to symetrical starts.

Can the people I've challenged view the following games as incorrect, I've set all of my men to continue on site so just wipe them out please.

Unaco - 377825
agentorange - 377826
TamLin - 377827

General comment to everyone, particularly the newcomers: don't worry if you submit an incorrect challenge. Just issue a new one and post the ID here (maybe PM your opponent to avoid any confusion), and the dodgy matches will expire eventually.

I've had one PM from a player who realised belatedly that the map wasn't great. In this situation the game can either be played anyway or a new challenge issued, depending on the preference of both players. As long as both players are happy, it's all fine.

epoc923

No worries, found you and sent a challenge...At least i think i did, getting a error "You do not have access to this multiturn - it is not finished"

The fight against Sarigs brought a lot more of the tension I like to associate with Frozen Synapse, when that wall was destroyed in the south and your machine gunner opened up through the hole I had to scramble, really enjoyable game there.

I managed to get a guy down the bottom so I could see where you were running to - that helped ;)
(And your shotgun not stealing focus - not sure why that didn't work. Do shotguns out of range not count as a threat perhaps?).

Thanks for the game!

Ayam's MG #1 beat your MG #1, because your guy was distracted by his shotgunner before the shootout began.
His MG #3 killed your MG #3 because he's standing behind low cover, while your guy is out in the open.

It takes a little while, but once you get the hang of it, you'll be the one doing the pwning :)

General comment to everyone, particularly the newcomers: don't worry if you submit an incorrect challenge. Just issue a new one and post the ID here (maybe PM your opponent to avoid any confusion), and the dodgy matches will expire eventually.Speaking of which, the challenge you sent (378882) only has three units per side.

edit - I just realized that this challenge is for the tourney, nevermind!

Dear supamanu, there is not much to say. Even I had to do a post match rerun.

Google for the FS wiki, it is out there somewhere and gives the rules. It is very simple. Without reading it, I sucked and was frustrated. Read it and you will not be surprised anymore.

I particularly recommend the Principles of Combat (http://fs.error420.com/wiki/Principles_of_Combat) and Distraction (http://fs.error420.com/wiki/Distraction)pages.

-rips up Easy's ticket to small island- Stay, fight some more and don't be dissuaded.

That was a terrible map, but I had to generate 6 maps in a row for our league division so I didn't analyse our map before submitting it to you. There are the factors discussed above that lead to the conclusion of our battle, there was also the slight element of camping which was cheap, but unfortunately such a bad map encouraged.

There was also some secret sauce that no-one seems to have noticed, so I will try to use that element of the recipe in future games! Good game, though, and trust me, I only got lucky because I didn't realise some of the things written above were actually going on.

I did nickname him 007 for a reason!

I think your MG did register my SG in appropriate enough time (not sure if you're referring to that or your SG failing to spot my SG); I was also hoping the grenade would mess up your men's optics for a split second, you never know, it could be a yet unrealised gameplay factor that Ayam of the Antarctic discovered!

It was a very fun game for me, thanks for that, I was very surprised to have come back in that manner after your first kill completely demoralised me. However, I have to attribute most of it to luck, especially that final grenade that I kissed before throwing!

After you submit the first turn and watch the outcome, you can submit the next in advance, so when I submit mine, I get the outcome right away. I can then submit 2 turns at once too, which speeds things up quite a bit. Note that this has no effect on the outcome, nor gives you any additional information. It's much more convenient for both players and less frustrating for me.

CMaster has taken a turn in our game which I probably won't be able to respond to till tomorrow. Hopefully we should be able to finish in the next couple of days if that's okay. My game against echodb has also finished. I'm not able to get to FS at the minute but I'm sure they'll report it soon and if not I'll do it tomorrow.

Jolima has drawn against Comrade Penguin in match 377889 with 3 kills against 3.
cimethink has defeated Jolima in match 377892 with 4 kills against 1.

Some of those were reported earlier in the thread, but they weren't in the spreadsheet yet.

The match against WombatDeath remains. I had lost track of that one, but just took an action in it.

My experience with round 1 of this league, I did post this up on YouTube at least a week ago before Cable/Urthan turned up for my final game (I think the forums were down when we managed to conclude our battle). It's very light analysis of what went on.

My question is, is there going to be a finals round of games or is it highest points scorer at the end of the 6 games wins?

Excellent work! I enjoyed that; when are you doing all of the other league games? ;)

The top scorer of each division wins that division, and at some point over the next few weeks we will begin season 6!

I've made some forfeit decisions but some will need your input. The outstanding results are:

Division 2
imirk vs. Heliocentric

Division 3
Ayam vs. Urthran
Coccyx vs. Tailswallower
Supermanu vs. Urthran
Urthran vs. tpiece

Division 5
Pirate_PL vs. BlazeL
Wowza vs. jbenson
Wowza vs. BlazeL
Modomahu vs. jbenson
Modomahu vs. BlazeL
BlazeL vs. jbenson

If you're involved in any of those games, and you're not responsible for the hold-up, please let me know so that I can award you the points. If I don't hear anything in the next few days I'll award the points according to my best guess, to nobody, at random, or to myself, depending on how drunk/hungover I am.

Thanks for the explanation, WombatDeath. For my final game, Cable/Urthran should be reporting this, but for the sake of round 1 coming to a close (and seeing my section of the spreadsheet finally come to a close!), allow me to slide in there:

Division 5
Pirate_PL vs. BlazeL
I've been waiting for BlazeL to submit his turn for ages. He submitted one or two at the beginning, but that was in the first week. Since then, nothing.

Ayam,
About your game with TailSwallower: AFAIK when there're two identical soldiers in identical states f.e. two SGs running towards themselves, it's a coinflip. I pulled this from the wiki:

... there is a tiny pseudo-random bonus or penalty determined by turn number and player id. This is not something worth worrying about as it will only matter in the case of a bilateral engagement between units whose other bonuses are exactly the same. In any case, you can't do much about it.
Great work on the vid btw.

Coccyx
23-12-2011, 02:20 AM
Nice Vid Ayam - thanks again for your many compliments. In case you're wondering by the way, I chose Coccyx as my handle for 3 reasons: Because it's Latin and has lot's of x's in it, of course, but primarily because it sorta reflects my surname, Cox. I do so love pointing that out to people.

As for my outstanding result against tailswallower, I've completely lost track of it and I've no idea who won. Not my responsibility to post the result though so... default win? yay?

Edit: ah. It turns out I challenged a fellow named simply 'tail' instead. Um. Is there much point in sending a proper challenge now?

BlazeL

No, but don't worry, you still come top of division 3. I think that's the first time that we've had a three-way tie on points at the end of a season, so that's interesting. Maybe? Anyway, well done!

Revised list of unresolved matches:

Division 3

Urthran vs. tpiece

Division 5
Wowza vs. jbenson
Modomahu vs. jbenson

None of which affect the division winners, and if I don't hear otherwise I'll make a decision over the weekend.

So, well done to all of the division winners! Commiserations to the valiant fallen! Season 6 will start in the new year; for now, a happy Christmas to you all.

I'm also interested in signing up for season 6. In the meantime, I'm happy to play challenges. I'm Xune on UK1.

I've had FS since it's humble bundle promotion but didn't give it much attention till recently, so I'm still learning.

OK, first an explanation.
After the first three days of this season, I set out to provide commentary videos on all the matches so far. I went as far as watching and recording the commentary on all of these. I stuck them together into a video that was alarmingly long, and set about trying to render it. The rendering never worked. Today, I've gone back to those existing recordings and cobbled them together to form a quick "highlights" reel, to act as a proof of concept for next season. If anybody would like to join me on the commentary team, it would be much appreciated, although one of the planned changes for next season is to cut down on how long each match lasts - adding more people will make that even harder.

Anyway, go the Rock Paper Synapse Show site here (http://games.linxsoft.co.uk/index.php/frozen-synapse-videos/47-rock-paper-synapse-show-season-5-highlights)

Nice work there CMaster.

I had other things on my mind during seasons 4 and 5, but now things are settled down again I'll be adding the matches from season 6 to the RPSyn Youtube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/RockPaperSynapse) - I might even go back and add the missing seasons too. If there's anything I can do to help with the Show I'd be happy to muck in.

WombatDeath
08-01-2012, 01:30 AM
That's very good! We've had some commentary this season from Ayam too, so if he's interested perhaps the two of you (plus anyone else who fancies it) could divide up season 6. It would be fantastic if we could manage to get commentary for every game, though that might be a tall order without an army of commentators - do any of you want to give it a shot?

Perhaps we could get the commented videos on (or linked from; I have no idea how this internet contraption works) the Youtube channel along with Col's videos?

ColOfNature
08-01-2012, 02:46 AM
One possibility: Youtube's Audio Swap (http://www.youtube.com/audioswap_main) means a comment track could be combined with the existing audio and added to the video fairly easily.

[e] On second thoughts, that wouldn't work very well - you'd have to talk really fast. But I'm happy to link to any videos from the channel so they can all be found in one place.

Nice work CMaster (although I kept going to hit space to see what would happen)!
It's interesting hearing someone else's perspective on what you've done in a match - what they think you're doing vs what you think you're doing :)

If I can figure out how to record etc, I might be up for some commenting too.

I think it's worth firing this along to the RPS guys too - might be able to ring up some more contenders for season 6.

I doubt many others are still reading this thread, but is holding the 'V' key something like what you mean by 'player's specific vision', Pirate?

If you hold it with a player selected, it allows you to move the pointer round and see exactly which bits of the level you can see with that guy.

That was a nice video, CMaster, especially the final game had a funky conclusion. Quite liked the backing music, too, deep instrumentals add so much to videos about conflict. I do wonder if rockets can actually hit soldiers and blow up, watching that final game. It's nice to have a pure highlights of the league video because that's a lot of games to watch individually. Might be an idea to tackle a video of highlighted moments of the league rather than full games, too.

Edit: Also looking at CMaster's credits, I forgot to thank WombatDeath for the organisation of the whole league, nice one to you.

rodeoclown
09-01-2012, 12:01 AM
Ayam, rockets most definitely do not hit soldiers :)
And that final explosion was the 2nd most satisfying moment in season 5 for me (the best was my wipeout of echodb, also in the video - he's a great player, just had a rough game then)!

CMaster and I were online at the same time, and we both were sure it would be a draw - he was just a millimetre too close to the wall :D
