Hello All,

For those of you who don’t know me, I am LordPatrick, or LP. I recently enough hosted a FFA Fun Series for the Spring/ Summer months, but technically it was only for Spring, as I had exams, and others had holidays. I am now hosting the 2nd of these series, for the Autumn/Winter months, but once again, due to the release of TAD sometime this Autumn, it will be starting mid-August to get the maximum amount of rounds in before TAD is released. So actually, this will be the last, although only the 2nd, TWC FFA Series, and I hope that it will be a memorable one.

The last Series had around 30 contestants, although some joined late, and some left early for one reason or another. But I suppose that is he joy of the FFA League, the fact that there is no pressure to play a round when you have previous engagements, or simply are feeling a bit under the weather.

Round 8

Map: Yukon
Date: 13th October
Time: 7.30pm GMT/ 8:30pm British Time/ 3:30pm HG Time

Patience is a Virtue

Last to Colonial gets 7 Points

One By One

Can only go Fortress when there are 5 people left. Can onyl go Industrial when there are 4 people left. Only last two can go Imperial. Anyone can revolt. If someone Disconnects, don't count them as being KO'ed, unless they were practically dead and liek just pulled the plug instead of resigning.

The contestants so far:

CookieCrisp13 = 208 Points

The League runs on a point system, with players trying to earn maximum points each round, and the person with the most points at the end of the League wins. The point system was made to try and make games more fun, encouraging rushing and revolting, and not benefiting defensive players nearly as much.

As an added spice to the rounds, each round shall have 1 or 2 themes, as such, which either reward players for certain tasks completed, or force all players to drastically change their game plan. Some of themes from the previous League include:

“Patience is a Virtue” - Last to Colonial Gets Points
“One By One” - Only allowed progress to the next age once a player has been ko’ed, not inc. Discovery
“10 Card Decks” - 10 Cards per Deck.

I will include the successful themes from the last Series and hopefully many more. Feel free to tell me your ideas on ESO. During the League, I will be on ESO regularly, but sometimes leave it logged in, while I am AFK. Simply whisper your question/idea, and I will read it when I come back on the computer.

The formalities covered, I will now proceed to the rules.


Anyone can enter. In a FFA, everyone starts the game with an equal chance of winning. Rank means little when it’s everyone man for himself. And as long as you have fun, that’s all that matters. Everyone’s a winner at the end of the day! To sign up, simply leave your ESO name here.

Times And Dates

Each Round, the chatroom will be set up on ESO at 7.30pm GMT, or 3.30pm EDT (HG Time). The chat will be open for 1 Hour. Try to turn up early so you can be guarenteed a game, as it is often 1 or 2 players don't get a game because they are late and there isn't enough people.

The 1st Round will be on the 11th of August, 2007. The lat round will be determined by the Release of TAD. Rounds will continue to happen until TAD is released.


On the time of the round, I will tell certain people to host a game, and who to invite. You do not host or choose which game you want to be in. Once a game is full, you can go ahead with the game. The last game will always wait until 4.30pm to start, as I have to play in the last game, and I have to wait until 4.30pm to start.


- All games must be recorded
- Any cheating of any kind will result in an immediate ban from the League, and all further Leagues.
- The map will be set beforehand.
- All HC Levels
- No Warships
- The Point system stops after 1 Hour 45 Mins. When I am watching the recording, I will pause it on that time, and adjudicate all further points.
- No unsportsmanlike behaviour. If you don’t have anything positive to say, don’t say anything.
- Everyone must have fun :P.

Point System

Winning = 7 Points

Runner-up = 5 Points

Third Place = 3 Points

Unique Civ = 1 Point

Knocking Someone Out (I decide, may be split between two) = 4 Points

Being 2X Teamed (I decide if enough damage was done) = 4 Points

Knocking a TC sub-10Mins = 8 Points

Knocking a TC sub-15 Mins = 4 Points

Revolting = 2 Points

KO’ing,, or Joint KO’ing Someone After Revolting = 6 Points

First to 1000 Points = 2 Points

First to Industrial = 1 Point

First to Trigger a Trade Monopoly = 2 Points

Winning Using a TM = 20 Points*

Stopping a TM (May be Split) = 2 Points*

Wall Spamming = - 6 Points**

* - To get the points for winning with a TM, there must be at least 2 Others Present in the game. Every time a certain person triggers a TM, the value for that person winning with it drops by 1 Point. So if I win with TM after triggering it twice before triggering it and winning, I only get 18 Points. If you trigger it first, and then trigger it a second time and win, you get 21 Points ( 20+2-1).

** - There is nothing wrong with an outer wall, and then a wall protecting your eco inside it, but you will lose the 2 Points if you build layers upon layers of walls. Again, I decide what counts as wall spamming.

As you can see, there is heavy points for rushing, even more than that for winning. This is to stop cagy games where everyone booms to try and win the game. It encourages open fighting from the start. And please, don’t leave your TC open top a 15 Pike rush sub-10Mins. 5 Xbows would stop the other guy walking away with an easy 8 Points.

So, I guess that’s it then. I don’t think I’ve forgotten anything …

Leave your ESO, and I’ll sign you up. Sign-ups will end, in around 4 weeks time. I am going to Alton Towers, and then straight to Irish College after that, 3 days from now, so if you have any questions, ask them quickly. I already asked Destiny_Devil to answer any questions he knows the answers to while I’m gone. Sign-ups will close in 4 weeks time.

Also, there is places reserved to those who participated in the last Series. I honestly don’t know how much people will want to participate, but the more the merrier.

Have Fun,


Congratulations Serge - Winner of the FFA Spring Series 2008

Ok watched Cookie's Game(s). It was a really goo dgam eot watch, and quite short too. I gave four points compensation to the four who had successfully rushed in the first game ...

CookieCrisp13 - Civ, 4 Points Compensation, Treasures = 6 Points

Bastiaan - Civ, 4 Points Compensation, Third ( 2 Points), 15 Card Deck = 12 Points

Chinnie - Civ, 4 Points Compensation, KO'ing Sporting, KO'ing Bastiaan, First to Industrial, First to 1000, Split KO'ing Cookie, TM Win (18 Points), 15 Card Deck = 41 Points :O

Eicho - Civ, Split KO'ing Cookie, Stopping TM, Second (4 Points) = 9 Points

Sporting_Lisbon - Civ, 4 Points Compensation, TC Sub-10 Mins, 10 Card Deck, First TM = 22 Points

Brian_NI - 4 Points For Not Knowing The Second Game Was Going On, As He Was KO'ed Early In The First One = 4 Points

Placings and TM win were reduced as there were 5 players only. really GG guys. Nice Chinnie.

I think my hopes to be 2nd are destroyed... hate you chinnie!

At least I can still try to beat Eicho.
With my typical "Don't win, but get base destroyed (perhaps after bum rushing a tc)and use stupid little points like first tm, most treasures, and revolting for added points and use the theme to your advantage if it means points. Get 3rd or so with a score of 50-100, and piss off other people who have gone in hiding by making an effort to kill all their units."

You'll remember that four (!) hour game against that crazy Russian that wouldn't give up, not realizing he was playing someone who in real life actually is a crazy Russian, that won't give up either. - Ender_Ward

Q: How do I get veteran skirms as the dutch?
- you have to buy the upgrade in the the barracks lol it should be under the skimiser logo. -you have to be in age3 to get veteran and age 4 to get guard.

FFA fun series, Sunday game, Last Round


Winner Eicho
Runner-Up Walker_5
3rd Place CookieCrisp
Last to Colonial Sporting Lisbon
Rule breakers Walker_5, he went to Age V when he was not allowed, but he said the mde non of the AgeV techs.

My Story

Surpisingly, no one attack me this time (early game).
So i boom, my score is the best, i send several Eco Cards, I take a TP, I take some part of the north.
Hydrovert was next to me, and his TC radius didn't let me build were i want.. so i tell him to delete it, wich he responded with something like "come and take it yourself", wich i did, also taking his hole base and making him resing, KO'ing Hydrovert.

Now we can all go to Age III.
Sporting and JimXIX are still in Colonial, but Sporting has a nice Spy army because he is Otto.
The rest go to Age III.
I triple TC boom, along with Eco cards, my economy, military and infrastructure is the best.
I have a little lest than half map in south, and half map in north. (maybe i have most treasures, dont know).
I have almost all cards sent, a pretty good eco and max pop.
I decide it's time for Age IV, but it wasn't so eas as going to Age III.
I make some attemps to go to Cookie Base, then go and kill Sporting base, and he had to make spies and hide them all over the map in sleath.
I decide im too lazy to go and find him, so i go for JimXIX.
Jim was already a bit screwed because Sporting Spy army, but i go and finish him, thsi can count as KO'ing him or half KO'ing him.
Now we all go to Age IV, i make TM (failed).
Now i have really hald the map, i have 50% north and 50% south.
Now, i dont know why, i lag. the game freezes for some mins, i was about to resign to let them play.
Luckily, it continues.
Now, i killed most of Cookie base, Sporting is hiding all over the map, he could go to age II now, because he got Patience points.
But i had walled and guarded his explorer
Now it's all Fort Hopping in Walker base, trying to find Sporting and killing some of Cookie vills, all at the same time.
Finally, i manage to reduce both Cookie and Walker bases to a little passage, they where both toghether, becuase i killed all his other bases.
Sporting finally got finded and killed, KO'ing Sporting.
Cookie, after attaking me with several Dopplsoldner waves, decides to quit so i cant get TM points.
But at that point, i ahd Forts in his little base, and killed his buildings, villagers and army, KO'ing CookieCrisp.
I started a TM before Cookie resigned, but it got stopped bt Walker.
Finally go to a little base Walker made, spammed fort Opris and Musks, GG.

Unike Civ
First to trigger a TM
First to 1000
KO Hydrovert
KO Sporting Lisbon
KO CookieCrisp
KO Walker_5
KO or half KO JimXIX
Most Treasures (maybe)

28 Points

It was a really GG, the game i enjoyed the most in this series.
I played with my favourite civ and won, also it was a good feeling holding 3 people at the time and still winnign, GG guys.

I thought our game was good, although the end was dragged out a bit. Parfait graced us with his presence, but was KO'ed first believe it our not by Chinnie. I was attacked and went north of river. Boomed, and then found myself top score. Took on steve, but uber lancers to strong for me and my instant musks. So i retreat, and the get TM and revolt and tyr to keep it. But fail. recs run out, my game over. GG guys.
