HiHi

Just to see if there is any interest out there in a 1792 No frills game, i.e. no bidding, no Mods (so no napoleon) played just as the scenario was designed.

Personal opinion but I feel the 1792 game may allow the smaller nations a better chance, so here's the proposed set up

1792, 23 yrs, No glory, highest at game’s end wins; 48 hr max for turn returns, but sooner = better.

Interested so far;

Kingmaker & Iron Warrior (1 slot reserved for B2 who’s on hols)
So 5 slots left; please state which 2 nations you would like/be prepared to play, but please be willing to negotiate.

All the Best
Peter

Count me in... pending newer players getting a chance as I don't want to hog all the fun.

Might check with timurlain and Franck as I think they wanted to get a game going.

HiHi

Have emailed Tom, Franck & Pete from the 1st PBEM, B2 I don't know when he's back, you any idea?

You got a couple of Nations Bill?

All the Best
Peter

PS also emailed Montesaurus as he's had bad luck a couple of times trying to get in before.

B2 said he'd be on vacation for 2 weeks... about 2 weeks ago. My guess is he should return any day now.

As for side I'll take whatever... I might as well wait to pick in case some newer players get interested and let them have first pick.

Hi, I'd join if you don't mind...


I guess I could try any of the small powers ( Spain, Turkey, Sweden or Prussia).


Prussia beieng the favorite. After that I don't mind. As usual I could play any nation if needs be... Turkey would probably be the nation I'd want to play the less in the list I gave.

Hello,
I am keen to join in. I wouldn't mind playing Prussia again. (seeing Franck was up to it, I am keen on having him have it).
List of favourite nations:
Prussia, Austria, England, Russia

It would seems England is not yet asked for.

Players:
Kingmaker: England
IW: Russia?
Franck: Spain
Timurlain: Prussia
Andrewkurtz: Sweden
B2: France??? (now he should have something to do!!!)
Mus: Austria
We miss one? (I have 7 players)


How I did this... Just chose every nation for every player that no one else wanted to play. And tryed to make players play something different from last game (ie Kingmaker as a naval nation, B2 as a big nation etc...) I kept Timurlain as Prussia since he specified he'd prefer to play it again.

Re GF: The problem is that she works in the woods in northern Quebec... I migth try to take my portable PC up and try to connect from shcools or somestuff like that... But that would mean I need to find a school with unsecured Wi-fii in the area :) (I'll try for sure even if I hate playing on my portable cpu... 15 minutes to load the game!!!!)

Also, could we add Blucher attrition level to the game? It would make people think before pointlessly moving armies around the map...

I'd personally suggest against it for two reasons:

1. This is 1792 "No Frills" PBEM and I think Blucher attrition level is a frill:)

2. I think the new supply depot rules has a HUGE impact on armies going everywhere.

HiHi

Sorry, thats an "Oooops" on my part Andrew, I had ment to suggest Bonapart attrition but forgot to include it, I'm easy with whatever you Chaps sort out as in the final analysis Attrition rates affect us all equally.

Franck I'm fine with England, but if you have probs getting the Turkey slot filled just shift me over there.

All the Best
Peter

I vote for Bonaparte Attrition.  It prevents people from marching willy nilly all over the place in a really unrealistic fashion. 

The supply rules make it difficult to project power deeply into enemy territory.  Thats one thing.

The march attrition prevents frivolous marching and countermarching.  Thats another thing.

HiHi

Hi Peter,

THanks for the notice but I'm going to try and get my own game going here in the next few weeks. If You're interested let me know as I'm short about 3 players at this time.

I also noticed that the game is being run by Kingmaker. I'd rather not participate in a game run by him. Appears, from what I read that he's a control freak, with little flexibility. Plus Another player invited me to participate in a game as someone had dropped out. I had accepted when Kingmaker came on and advised the person who invited me that he had already lined up someone else. I thought this rather rude, to uninvite me, because he found someone he preferred!

Anyway, Thank!

Monte

If you are desperate for a player, I can help out, but my turnaround for a second game might not be what would be desired. Have a very fast turnaround on the "another pbem" game, and it's taking up a lot of time, but will help if you need me and can't find another. Who is left?

Hehe Peter!

Kingmaker, I'd rather have nothing more to do with that Peter guy. I hear he does nice things like hosts games for everyone, I mean who does he think he is!

Lenin, just tell me wich nations you might want to play and I'll try to fit you in there...



Can you tell me who is Monte????


Anyways, if ''monte'' is not one of our players we would have 8 players. Following Lenin last post I guess we would have to move to a 72 hours turn around tough (that would work for you Lenin?)

Go for a 10% attrition level then!

If turkey is going, I'm happy with that.I do want a lower profile power though (played Britain and Prussia so far).
Should be fine with 48 hr turnaround, but occaisionally time is limited.
However, if a new player wants to play, they are welcome to my spot.

HiHi

Yer Pete if you would take on Turkey that would be a "Goodthing" as no Newbies seem anxious to join up, so to recap what we have is

1792, 23yrs, No glory highest at the end wins, 10% attrition (Wellington) where practical for Pete 48 hr max for turn returns, but sooner = better.

Franck I have taken the liberty to email B2 notifying him of his place and nation.

So who's who

Lenin = Turkey
IW = Russia
Andrew = Sweden
Timurlain = Prussia
Mus = Austria
Franck = Spain
Kingmaker = England
B2 (to be confirmed) = france

Think thats about it, seem OK to you folks?

All the Best
Peter

Hello Guys,
In regards to the previous paragraph, I just wanted to make it known that there was a misunderstanding on my part between Peter(Kingmaker)and myself, and that it has been resolved amicably! Furthermore I'm still interested in participating in COGEE, and if you need an 8th minor(or major) nation power I'd be happy to participate. I'll go ahead and place myself on the reserve list.
Regards,
Monte

Montesaurus, if you want my Turkey place, that's fine by me. Offered to play so these guys could go ahead, but I am a bit over-committed, so I'm happy if you want to play.
