View Full Version : A fun alternative to the common MP game

Hello all,

I just logged of the EA server (please note the lack of a plural, damn them) and am refreshed by what just happened. I was hangin with my clanmate and friend FearOrBeSori, and a couple others. we started playin 6 player free for alls. Basically you start the game, deploy your troops, then start killin! no allies, no help, no nothin but your men and 5 angry enemies. We decided the winner was decided by whoever had the most kills at the end of the game after his losses were subtracted. In other words, say I had 700 kills and 300 losses. My total score is 400. If that beats everyone else, I win. The reason for not doing whoever is last man standing wins is because then everyone would just camp and everyone would be afraid to fight. It was tons of fun and a nice break from the norm.

So if your interested, give it a whirl. Just remember to make the games friendly and, make sure everyone knows its a free for all. http://www.totalwar.org/ubb/smile.gif

Yes Sangs, I agree. Free-for-all is a lot of fun on Totomi with 6 players. There is a whole different strategy to use than in regular multi. I like it as a nice break from climbing all those mountains on Tosa! LOL

Here's an idea (which really should be linked to the thread about misinformation in MP) but anyway, just strike up a rated game, call it a free-for-all, and then you and your allies tromp all over your enemies, who should be attacking each other at the other end of the map since they're under the impression it WAS a free-for-all.
God that's low. I'm sorry I even came up with it.

Free for alls are quite fun, especially if one of your opponents is a little "slow" http://cgi.tripod.com/smilecwm/cgi-bin/s/scorchio/sevil.gif .

A lot of peeps say they know what you mean by free-for-all then forget, or don't know how to do it http://www.totalwar.org/ubb/wink.gif I sure got one guy pissed off http://cgi.tripod.com/smilecwm/cgi-bin/s/net2/smileyshot22.gif
