    Rock, Paper, Fleetwipe: RPS vs. AI War: Beltsander of Worlds Edition

    Hi all,

    Would anyone be up for this? I guess 4 people is the maximum that is really workable. I've really got into it since the new expansion came out, although we don't have to include all the crazy stuff that's been added if people are less familiar with the game. A 2 hour session a week can start as an initial suggestion, and I'm GMT. If there's more people interested/odd time zones we can always have a couple of games on the go.

    I guess it depends when and what settings you use to start off.

    I tried the game and I loved my time with it but I struggled to make any meaningful progress in the time that I played. It made me feel like an idiot commanding an fleet of tin cans against some unbeatable force. I tried a few times and just could not progress past a certain point.

    I have a few expansions but not all of them iirc so I don't know if that is a problem?

    I would be up for a multiplayer game. I've always started single player AI War games but never got anywhere with them. Perhaps with someone else playing I won't bounce off the game as easily.

    Sorry all - my graphics card evaporated, meaning that I completely forgot about this in a haze of acrid smoke.

    Anyway, I'll propose the following:

    4 Players Max. - Would prefer a consistent commitment (negotiable times if needed), just because juggling giving ships back and fore gets a bit confusing, and groups that get to know each other are fun!

    Difficulty 7/7 - Because it's AI War. I'm still at the 6 stage, but losing is fun.

    Base game only for the time being, as some of the strategies that new ships introduce can be pretty hairy.

    I'm afraid weekends are largely a no-go for me, as I commute. Monday through Wednesday evenings are generally the best, but Thursdays are fine too, at least until teaching starts again at the start of term.

    Thoughts?

    Monday and Tuesday evenings are much better for me also. I'd definitely be up for having a go at multiplayer AI War. Give me a shout on Steam although beware my PC remains on mostly 24/7 so I might not reply immediately.

    Count me in. Been dying to play it coop for ages but never managed to convince anyone. Then again, AIW isn't for anyone :D

    Pretty flexible schedule wise, so I will try and accommodate the needs of the the kids at battles school (so long as Heliocentric is Ender, I want to be on his crew)
