29 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 1901: So I presume we're just doing this on a trust basis, yes? I assume the mods haven't actually been asked to change the build rules or anything?
29 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 1901: It's a trust basis but tue mods are aware and watching ready to penalize should someone violate the trust.

Remember, ay least until we are all comfortable with keeping track of our limits and disbands when we might normally retreat, don't finalize those two stages.

Thanks and every have fun!
29 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 1901: And just to confirm, the rule is:

For every "home" SC you hold (whether yours or an SC that started as another power's home SC) you get ONE unit.

For every THREE neutral SCs you hold, you get ONE unit.

Is that right?
29 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Correct, rounded though so you get one at 2,5,8, and 11.
29 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Yup.

Good luck and have fun guys!
29 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Why is it rounded? Three is already an integer.
29 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 1901: I don't know why, but it shouldn't come as a surprise. Draugnar made the decision in the thread and while I mentioned before that I would prefer it not being rounded, I was fine either way and no one else complained about it.
29 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 1901: I didn't notice that. What's the explanation, Draugnar?
29 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Because nations like Italy already have a disadvantage in trying to get two SCs and someone else complained Russia might be the only one to pull of a build in Spring 01 and wouldn't play unless one of Russia's home SCs counted as an independent one. This was a compromise that made the rules simple without the Russian confusion. Most everyone can pull off an opening build with good negotiation skills but no one will pull off two unless they stab a neighbor.
29 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Ok.
29 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 1901: This may be a little early to start thinking about this. But I kinda like the new strategy that the twist on the game brings. I would be interested to play another game in the future with the same twist (hopefully as another country for some added interest). Perhaps depending on how this game goes, we can play another one. As I said earlier though, this may be too early to think this.
29 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 1901: I definitely adds a new dimension to opening strategies and makes the whole care bear 01 approach useless.
29 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Indeed. I find the Classic map too boring to play on any more, but this little twist I think would make it interesting again.
29 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 1901: (abgemacht): Hello all,

I've been asked to keep an eye on this game. If you have any concerns, please feel free to contact me. The rules seem very straight-forward, so I don't foresee any issues.

Enjoy your game!

30 Jun 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Thanks abge!
03 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: So, if I'm correct, England, France, Germany, Turkey and myself have one build each for 1901, is that right?
03 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: austria also has one.
03 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: Oh, because the SC he gained is a home SC. Right.
03 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: yeah. and italy has one disband.
03 Jul 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: Yeppers. So nobody except me uses all their builds. And Italy has to disband the retreat because it can't retreat to an SC that would get it a build.
