Shannon V. OKeets -> Simple Survey (5/7/2009 6:59:59 PM)

I would like to have a better idea of which modes of play are going to be used.

There are 5 modes of play:

Solitaire - you play both sides and make all decisions.

Head-to-head (Hotseat) - two players use a single computer, with the players taking turns moving their units/making decisions using the same mouse and keyboard.

AI Opponent - the player takes one side and the Artificial Intellengent Opponent plays the other.

NetPlay - 2 to 6 players with each player having his own computer; there are game 'sessions' where all the players log into the game and communicate their decisions using the internet.

PBEM - Play by email for 2 players, with all decisions communicated via email (an option to temporarily switch to NetPlay if they so desire).

Which mode of play do you expect to use?[&:]

Could you please put your answers in percentages? It would be nice it the percentages added up to 100% too.[;)]

Short and simple answers would be best for this thread. If there are other discussions on this topic, I would prefer a new thread (or some other existing thread) be used.




rmdesantis -> RE: Simple Survey (5/7/2009 7:06:22 PM)


For me:
AI Opponent 10%
PBEM 90%

I expect to play mostly NetPlay and AI Opponent.
A little Solitaire maybe too, but I don't expect to ever play PBEM mode.




Solitaire : 10% (always good to try things)

Head-to-head (Hotseat) : 0% (I have the room for the game, so prefer to play the cardboard game if my friends can come to my place -- but this may change if I move to a smaller place)

AI Opponent : 35% (for the enjoyment fast plays / no pain, pure lasyness)

NetPlay : 55% (with my best friends that are too far from my home, and the pleasure of not having to bother with the rules)

PBEM : 0% (can't think of having to wait for the next move. For me WiF FE can only be played live [:D])




Frederyck -> RE: Simple Survey (5/7/2009 7:09:32 PM)

Solitaire: 10%
Head-to-head: 0%, same reasons as Patrice
AI: 50%
NetPlay: 40% (with a friend in Belgium)
PBEM: 0%




Mike Parker -> RE: Simple Survey (5/7/2009 7:10:23 PM)

Solitaire - 5% (to play with things not to play a game)

Head-to-head (Hotseat) - 10% (when my brother is on leave)

AI Opponent - 60%

NetPlay - 25%

PBEM - 0% (but maybe it will take some of the net play time, it depends on how well this option works... I would think it would be to clunky)


This is in terms of TIME I spend playing it. Not really how I think effort should be made. In other words Solitaire might be 5% of my time, it would likely be 1% of my care or concern for the game.




micheljq -> RE: Simple Survey (5/7/2009 7:13:35 PM)

Solitaire - don't think so - 0%

Head-to-head (Hotseat) - 5%

AI Opponent - will largely depends on how the AI will be - 35%

NetPlay - 60%

PBEM - 0%




composer99 -> RE: Simple Survey (5/7/2009 7:15:24 PM)

I play WiF live right now, so assuming that keeps up:

Solitaire - 30%

AI Opponent - 40%

NetPlay - 30%

Most of which is for me to game out ideas I want to use in live games.




SamuraiProgrammer -> RE: Simple Survey (5/7/2009 7:19:33 PM)

At First

Solitaire 5% or less
Hotseat 0%
AI Opponent 70-75%
NetPlay 25% (or zero depending on preferences of my friend who will buy the game)
PBEM 0% (or 25% depending on preferences of my friend who will buy the game)

The total of NetPlay and PBEM should be 25%

After I have had it a while

Solitaire 25%
Hotseat 0%
AI Opponent 25%
NetPlay 25% (guessing)
PBEM 25% (guessing)

The total of NetPlay and PBEM should be 50%





Froonp -> RE: Simple Survey (5/7/2009 7:19:57 PM)

Steve, I can spare you the time of putting the results of this survey into a spreadsheet if you want.
I already begun however.
Just tell me when you want me to mail you the sheet.




lomyrin -> RE: Simple Survey (5/7/2009 7:40:32 PM)

solitaire  5 %
AI opponent  10 %

warspite1 -> RE: Simple Survey (5/7/2009 7:41:33 PM)

Solitaire 30%
Hot Seat 70%

I have never tried NetPlay or PBEM, but would probably use one or both of those if Hot Seat proved too difficult to organise.

AI Opponent - the player takes one side and the Artificial Intellengent Opponent plays the other.

80%, (ultimately this depends on the quality of the AI and the availability of human opponents)

NetPlay - 2 to 6 players with each player having his own computer; there are game 'sessions' where all the players log into the game and communicate their decisions using the internet.

0%

PBEM - Play by email for 2 players, with all decisions communicated via email (an option to temporarily switch to NetPlay if they so desire).

20%, (But why only two player PBEM ?)

Thanks, yes, please. Let's give it a week before generating any summry, so the frequent visitors to the forum get an opportunity to reply.




wfzimmerman -> RE: Simple Survey (5/7/2009 8:38:19 PM)

solitaire 50%.
PBEM 50%.

as time goes on, and assuming PBEM works pretty well, I would expect PBEM to increase and solitaire to decrease.




SewerStarFish -> RE: Simple Survey (5/7/2009 9:52:58 PM)

AI, almost completely -- though I'd play solitaire if you think there'll be no AI.

<edited to actually answer the survey-reedited to spell actually korektlee>




LiquidSky -> RE: Simple Survey (5/7/2009 9:55:23 PM)

I will play vrs the AI to learn the mechanics of the UI.  Probably once or twice.
I will play a good friend of mine who I played WiF with for 15 years PBEM/Netplay.  Probably 5-10 games
I may play random people I meet here in multi-country Netplay.     1-2 games perhaps leading to several.
Solitare?  Nah, I can use Vassal for that.
Hotseat?  Well, its easier to play over the board, and set the game up

So:

Vrs AI:  10%
PBEM/Netplay, 2 people:  70%
Netplay, 7 people:  20%   But could eat into the PBEM/Netplay if it proves to be fun.
Solitare:  Never.
Hotseat:  Never.




gridley -> RE: Simple Survey (5/7/2009 10:45:01 PM)

Solitaire - 5% Seems like it would come in handy to try different build strategies. Wouldn't play it for a War though.

Head-to-head (Hotseat) - 5% My group plays our grand strategy game with a LAN setup now. We'll probably do the same with MWiF. On days only 2 can make it, we'll try doing this.

AI Opponent - 20% Try things out.

NetPlay - 70% This is where the fun will be.

PBEM - 0% I have seen your threat explaining how this works, don't think it's for me.




sajbalk -> RE: Simple Survey (5/7/2009 10:56:52 PM)

Solitaire 10%; AI 0%; Hot Seat 0%; netplay/e-mail 90%. Prefer net-play.





jaimain -> RE: Simple Survey (5/7/2009 11:13:23 PM)

AI 60%
PBEM 30%
NETPLAY 10%





coregames -> RE: Simple Survey (5/7/2009 11:19:31 PM)

Solitaire: 10% (until such time as the option of split scale is offered in MWiF, then 20%)
Head-to-head: 10%
AI Opponent: 20% (until split scale, then 10%)
NetPlay:50%
PBEM: 10%

Assuming split scale is ever offered, I would use it to explore possibilities inherent in the position over-the-board. Definitely, Netplay is my strong preference for MWiF.




cwie -> RE: Simple Survey (5/7/2009 11:26:12 PM)

Solitaire 10%
AI 80%
PBEM 10%

netplay/e-mail 90%. Prefer net-play.

That means 50% / 40% ?
55% / 35 % ?

Statistics need hard data.

So, that's PREM 70% and Netplay 20% ?
