Response to What, drama?


Armies are a separate issue. The issues may cover some of the same ground, but since I have not yet had the experience of working with the new, stronger armies, I cannot yet speak to it.

I remember all the lamentations in the very early days, before even the RBD SG's started, about how weak and useless the armies were. Heh. Could this be a case of "careful what you wish for"?

The ultimate solution is for all the rules to be accessible in the editor -- especially anything they decided to change from PTW, which was a fairly well balanced game. If they've broken anything -- and we may not be able to determine what is or isn't broken in the short term -- it's only a crisis if there's nothing we can do in the editor to fix it or change it back.

  Tourney Mission Statement:
Existing Civ III tournaments, contests and group events are universally plagued by elements or shortcomings that lead often to compartmentalized results. Spoilers and privileged info is readily made available while games are still in progress. The game itself remains in flux through a patching process. The scoring system measures only a few elements of the gameplay. We at Realms Beyond are not satisfied to settle for these conditions and compromises.

The Realms Beyond is home to gamers who go beyond the norm, who creatively add depth to good games to make them better, who choose to set our own added limits to gameplay for the purpose of increasing challenge, varying gameplay flavor, and getting more out of the games we love. We discard the usual standards and venture into realms beyond, where we share our passion for gaming with one another, and with those who are like-minded.

We develop and refine our tournament as we go, with the help of the players. Each game is subject to rules, but we keep the framework light, the emphasis on excellence, the focus on the spirit of the game. Come and play. Share, compare, teach, and learn.
