    Default Multiplayer Clan - Map Competition

    The following has been on the back burner for a while, as we preceded through the Shogun trilogy with our standard Clan Wars Competition spring and autumn Classic Battle tournaments (still in progress).

    But now looking at a year until returning to Rome, it may be time to trot this puppy out and see if anyone likes the idea, or has any thoughts to help make it better.




    First draft: Clan Conquest Competition

    Shogun 2 - Classic Battle - map biased – Clan competition, basically using the same principles as the as the in-game Clan Competition map contest, only simplified and more relevant to community growth.

    Clans must register for this competition, and maintain an amendable list of all participating members.

    A Conquest Map will be created with each province division named for a standard key-building game map.

    Any participating Clan member or team of Clan members (two, three or four) can arrange a Classic Battle with anyone online not in their Clan, and in winning that battle get a point credit for each of the enemy players defeated.

    The points are reported by submission of a replay titled with; Clan name, map fought, and points earned.

    The points will be added to those earned by their particular Clan for that map, and the possession of the related contest province credited to the highest scorer on that map.

    Wins on provinces adjacent to any owned at the time of the reported win, receive double points.

    Ties on specific provinces will be credited to the earliest reported, with all scores reflected in the ranking positioning roster.

    The contest ends when all contest provinces are owned, with the top three wining Clans announced to the public.



    The above, if well received could be up and operational in weeks, with Clans starting as soon as they are registered, and their members as soon as they can arrange a battle.

    Sound like fun?

    Tomisama, this sounds very interesting.

    Just to make sure I have understood it correctly:
    Any participating Clan member or team of Clan members (two, three or four) can arrange a Classic Battle with anyone online not in their Clan, and in winning that battle get a point credit for each of the enemy players defeated.
    You mean a clan can fight anyone to gain points - it does not have to be another clan taking part in this competition, right?

    Thanks for responding Nigel.

    Yes, a Clan’s members can fight anyone to gain points.

    I know everyone’s first impression is to imagine seasoned Classic players taking advantage, only picking fights with those unfamiliar with the Classic Battles mode. But isn’t that the same as we have with the Avatar game? The better difference here being that the as-yet-unskilled will have an equal opportunity to beat their hosts, having equal access to all assets of the game, unlike Avatar. And don’t we all have to learn somehow? My hopes is that once folks who have only played Avatar get a taste of Classic, that they will then understand why the Total War series multiplayer has enjoyed such a long life.

    Some things have changed in the plan since posting the above.

    Clans need not register or provide a list of players, but all players playing for Clan points need to have their Clan’s moniker on their player name.

    The first sixteen province test map will be up soon, and we will give it a try

    This looks interesting.

    Let's hope it will be well received especially by the 'newcomers' to the game.

    As wins are reported the scores tally up until all provinces are owned.

    I left the "CLAN 00" place-holder visable to show how Clan ID and score entries would be presented.

    Of course there will not be any at the start.

    Are you ready?

    The page is up, the email set. All that is needed now is players

    Beyond some minor alterations that I am sure will come, the first Classic Battles Clan Conquest Map Competition is on!

    Ten Provinces already owned, and all by one Clan.

    Can they be stoped?
