Frozen Synapse League - Season 15
Sign-ups for Season 15 are now open!
I'm open to suggestions about which mode we should play. If we don't achieve some sort of consensus I'll default to Dark Extermination.
If you would like to take part please do three things:
1) Add yourself to this list. Vote for your preferred game mode while you're there. Let me know if there's any mode you'd rather not play.
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, except maybe WombatDeath or whoever takes over admin duties after me, but even then only with your permission. If you have previously PM'd your address to WombatDeath in an earlier season please consider sending it to me too.
3) Click here 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 15 will begin on the Saturday 1st of December and will last until the 16th (and no later!), so please don't sign up if you expect to be unavailable for that period. Rules might be slightly different from previous seasons, depending on the mode we decide on, but all will be explained in this thread before the season kicks off.
New and old players are all welcome! No experience required, and weaponry will be provided. Sign up!
Frozen Synapse RPS Season 15 Preview
Hello ladies and gents! Behold the RPS Frozen Synapse Season 15 preview!
I'll try to introduce players signed up for league 15 and throw in a bit of analysis.
ColOfNature (ranked 5825) - person in charge of our league. It would be only right to begin our preview with him.
Entering the last tournament ColofNature was looking on improving his all-time disputed record which, at the time, stood at 4 games – 4 losses. The first success came in game 628738 where he managed to beat a high-ranked rodeoclown with the score of 30. Entering the 5th turn of the game with 2 men against 3 opponents, he managed a super-sleek move with his riot-shield. The move has also been referred to as a “good-bye kiss to the sniper”. Watch the game if you want to see the famed move.
Going into the new season ColOfNature will keep his fingers crossed for any mode except Disputed. An overall record of only 2 Disputed wins in 13 matches speaks for itself.
Cimethink (ranked 46) The highest ranked player of season 14.
Having won the 1st Division of season 13 Cimethink must have entered the 14th with confidence.
Much to everyone’s surprised lost early on in the league to parpel (ranked 136) in game 627975. A cautious game where parpel managed to gain control of the centerfield, which proved to be enough for a narrow 30-point victory. A game against BigBobr99 (ranked 197) 627980 was marked with a clever shotgun move by his opponent which led to cimethink suffereing his last -30-point defeat of the tournament. He left his opponents no chances in his remaining games totaling a 9-2 record, 830 points and finishing second in season 14.
He will be looking to improve on his 2nd place finish in upcoming season, hoping to play his favorite Dark Charge mode (21 wins and only 5 losses in Charge games).
to be continued ... (if you'd like me to, anyways)
