    Default Historical Battles Contest

    What would you say to an Historical Battles Contest?

    It would be based on a kills scoring comparison system, with best winner and best looser categories for every Battle scenario.

    A new Historical Battle every week, with screen print TGAs of final score sent in for proofs.

    Interesting?

    Sounds like a cool idea, and I've never really played the historical battles online.

    For some reason it seems to be harder to get individuals together than four man teams. It may have something to do with Clan reputations at stake, or expectations to play of more folks motivating everyone.

    Maybe we should have based the competition on wins rather than kill points, and set a time limit of three weeks to complete or forfeit? But there would be no way to compare matches between different sets of participants, for an overall winner. And no guarantee that it would have made and difference anyway.

    The ezboard getting wiped out didnít help, but many were not posting there anyway.

    Whatever the cases of correctness and luck might have given this contest, I think it is safe to say itís not going to fly. So I am going to have to officially call it off.




    Wish, I will look for you when I am in Rome (have been having fun back in VI), and would be happy to test skills on Asculum with you

    Sounds good. What battle is first?
    "And one should bear in mind that there is nothing more difficult to execute, nor more dubious of success, nor more dangerous to administer than to introduce a new order to things; for he who introduces it has all those who profit from the old order as his enemies; and he has only lukewarm allies in all those who might profit from the new. This lukewarmness partly stems from fear of their adversaries, who have the law on their side, and partly from the skepticism of men, who do not truly believe in new things unless they have personal experience in them."

    Hey look, if there are folks who want to participate, we will continue.

    Iím sorry Tibi, guess it aint over yet

    Will be back shortly. Have a bunch of names to add to The Code. Then we will take another look at what might be done here.

    As I have said before, I personally think this is a Great Contest, so am willing to go the extra mile

    They say that the third timeís the charm. I donít know how accurate they are, but I know that legend has it that Robert the Bruce succeed on his third attempt, encouraged by watching a spider complete itís web on the third try.

    Hey, good enough for me!

    Briefly, this is how it works from here on out.

    1. Fight a Historical Battle of the Month with anyone (Codie or non-Codie).

    2. Send in the Logfile.

    3. The necessary information will extracted and posted.

    The Rules will be rewritten to explain in detail, but really that is all there is to it, so those who want to go ahead and get started can do so.

    The Historical Battle of the Month for June 2005 for Rome Total War is still Asculum.

    Just be sure that your Preferences are set to record logfiles.

    ALWAYS_LOGFILE:TRUE
    TIMESTAMP_LOGFILE:TRUE

    Then go for it!

    After, find the correct recorded battle in your logfiles folder. Copy and paste to an email with the subject title of HBC, and send to:

    codemember@hotmail.com

    Thatís all there is to it!

    At the end of the month all scores will be posted, and we will announce the Champions on the Org front page.



    P.S. Yes Code signers are the only ones eligible to send in HBC logfiles. And yes, they are bound by honour to send all battles (win or loose) that are fought in the name of HBC, which needs to be in the game title to be accepted.

    Good Hunting!

    Log files are always generated for multiplayer games anyway; you don't have to set ALWAYS_LOGFILE to TRUE - this is to allow log files to be generated for single player games.

    Wish - Just look in your Logfiles directory under RTW, you probably have hundreds... Open them in Wordpad, as notepad can't handle the end of line characters.
