GM Mike's Relative +LEV plus spy changes Xgame

Post by trewqh » Wed Jul 04, 2007 11:50 am

I took the liberty of opening a new waitlist that will try out some more of the proposals put forth recently.

The biggest change is the relative +LEV worker aim. I changed the default 0.003 per worker to 0.000 and I will manually update the appropriate LEV bonus after each turn runs (I will calculate the effect of workers and then the effect of any army mixing during movement phase). The LEV each worker will add will depend on the LEV of the armies that are being upgraded. Each worker will produce a LEV bonus equal to :arrow: (10-LEV)/(1801*LEV) where LEV is the level of the armies at the beginning of the Working phase. A bit complicated, I know, but you can use the spreadsheet to calculate it yourself or look at the simulation for 125 workers here to get an idea how it works. (The last green column is what you need, ignore the other three columns with different formulas)

The other changes concern spying. As suggested by Vortan, I set all of the EFF bonuses and penalties of spy actions to 0. Except, the sabotage DEF spy option which was effectively turned into a sabotage EFF option. Make sure to check out the houserules of the game to see how the numbers were tweaked.

Let me know if anything is unclear so that I can fix it or explain it before the game starts.

I hope you'll like this X-game. :)

Everyone's welcome to join!

Yours truly,
GM Mike

Filling in slowly, but still...

Dragonette takes the second spot.

I wonder how many people are there who would like to join a new game but a regular one. It's been 5 days since I've opened this X-game and only two players joined, maybe there's not enough demand for such a game. Still I wouldn't like to slow things down if there are more players who'd prefer a regular game, but no GM wants to open one before my X-game fills.

I'm in 4 games at the moment so I won't be signing up until at least two of them finish. Hard to keep up at the moment, especially with the Westeros game.

Oh please kor. Tell me you are joking. Beyond the first couple of weeks the need to THINK all but evaporates. If it takes more than a few minutes then what on earth are you doing??

Diplomacy, discussing things with your clan mate and yes the planning of a turn does take quite a bit of time. Of course not the turns in which you sleep, but more active turns take a lot of planning and weighing of possibilities.

I have little clue what I'm doing, but I am a warm body, so I'll sacrifice myself for your amusement. But remember, you all owe me! :wink:
