Free for All: White v Green v Purple v Black v Blue


#1

Hey all! @Request, @zhavier and I are going to start a FFA game tonight, played by forum posts. Anyone that would like to join us to fill the last 2 possible spots is welcome! We are hoping to do all mono-colors (and ideally each player does a unique color, as if we were all getting together over one Deluxe set), so Green, Red, and Blue are all available!

Current Players:
@FrozenStorm - Mono White, 63/100 (currently going first)
@Youngbuck - Mono Green, 61/100 (currently going second)
@Request - Mono Purple, 51/100 (currently going third)
@Zhavier - Mono Black, 22/100 (currently going fourth)

I will start the game at 7pm US Central Daylight Time today, 2016-10-16. CDT is UTC-5, so about 7.5 hours to join us!


#2

I recommend tagging the person that goes next in each turn.


#3

I was JUST about to suggest that :wink: Additionally, I think it may be worth tagging anyone whose board state you affected as a part of your turn, and if possible, summarize the changes neatly (open to suggestions on formatting)


#4

Is this PbP?


#5

Yes! We are planning to take turns in this thread


#6

Im in! Guess I’ll go Mono-Green 61/100


#7

Some friendly reminders for FFA:
-You can heal your base for 3 gold per 1 damage. No limit
-Whenever you kill an enemy unit on your turn, you get 1 free gold, up to 3 maximum.
-You can lend patrollers to other players and they will return to you at the beginning of that player’s upkeep.
-P3 gets 5 workers and a neutral 1/1 mercenary (tech 0) during their first upkeep
-P4 gets 5 workers and 2 1/1 mercs
-P5 gets 5 workers and 3 1/1 mercs


#8

All right, we have ourselves a 4 person free for all! GL HF Everyone, @YoungBuck you will be going next, and I remind everyone PLEASE tag any player whose board will be affected by your turn, and tag the next player after you take your turn!

Also, feel free to table-talk in-thread to forge (temporary) alliances or PM each other, whatever works!

Original plan will be indestructible units, turtling, heping to pick off obvious threats, not making myself a target, and eventually using Double Time to get a surprise strike for victory.

@Feathers would like to join as Blue, I say we let him be player 5.

Black kicks it off with a blast!

Thoughts

Ugh, this hand. A vulnerable illusion, a useless spell, a too-expensive unit, and two administrators that make me the common target. Usually I’d have built a tower+1 drop… What the hell, let’s do it anyways and see if anyone would be selfless enough to dent my patrol zone for others. Tentatively work towards Judgment Day+Garrisons.


#13

You dont get your mercs until your upkeep, so StW didnt affect you.


#14

Oh, in that case Merc 3 is in Elite.


#15

As I suspected, Sac The Weak seems ridiculous. What I DIDN’T expect was how obnoxious Building Inspector would be…

We had a late sign-up in @feathers, welcome (but dude building inspector…)

@Youngbuck you’ll be up next!

5P is gonna be nuts. Hard to keep track of board states easily here, so we’ll just stick with the plan and focus on obvious threats while slowly building up my Double Time shenanigans. If that doesn’t look like and option maybe I can go for a Past-Slow Time Generator lock and see what happens

Thoughts

So many of Blue’s options revolve around limiting a single opponent, which isn’t as viable in FFA. Peace remains my best option, just trying to survive until I can pull off Judgment Day and Garrison to stabilize, then we’ll see what happens next. Fortunately there should be less intentional violence in 5p beyond killing units so Tech II building might be safe long enough for that to happen.


#20

Point of curiosity: am I free to reveal any hand information I’ve gained in an (this) FFA game?
