How about, between rounds, there be a "speed round"? A quick, 3 or 4 hour round, with turns comming up every minute, and everyone starting with 100 in each research except Off and Def?
IMO it would be fun, and full of attacks.

I think it would be more fun if the speed rounds were :

You start with 4500 turns, get temporary speed round techies and whoever gets the best tech wins.

That would be much more fun :)

Sad thing is...we proposed this to tar and he said it would be too complicated...I wish jon would make that.

I don't know about 3-4 hours, but maybe two at the max for me.

Sal, come on, playing for tech we already do in the normal round.
Fun would be a quick round full of what nation needs -- attacks.

You could base rank off of damage done instead of tech...

It wouldn't exactly be easy to create a ranking system based on how much damage you have done. In fact, I can't begin to imagine how to figure it out, much less program it.

Er, yes it would be easy.
Take the amount of units killed, land taken, from an attack, add up to the DB, multiply each unit kill for their worth, ta-da, you have a damage ranking.

Nice suggestion, LC.

But it does make things complicated, so on one part, they are correct.

But it does make things fun, so on one part, LC is correct.

Therefore, these two corrections of correctitude balance each other out making Nations. You see! This is what the programmers originally thought!

O_o' Red is not on dope.

Hash maybe?

It wouldnt be overly complicated to make damage done = rankings, LC just gave a brief and short explaination.

120 day rounds

where max turns = 500 (+ some restriction on attacks)

so people like me can keep playing XD

A 120 day round would be crazy. Imagine being the winner of that.

1500 turns to do with as u please when u please, and 1500 as they are now, that way you can DECIDE when the PUNISHMENT or TECH starts!
