3 vs 3 Europe no cards added ladder?: 7/11/2011 06:29:22

To me this seems a very popular game and it's fun with different ways to play, and great ways for everything to go wrong. Each player picks 4 territorys, or less this can be changed.

Do you have a link to a game with this format? Would like to setup one with the correct settings.

I believe he is talking about something like these settings (without the luck/boot requirements of course)

This my favorite gameplay setting and I would LOVE to see this as a ladder. It's exciting that someone even brought it up. The only issue I see is with the number of players right now. The 1v1 is thriving, but 2v2 there aren't many ranked teams yet. 3v3 I fear would just fare worse.

luck would probably be dropped to 16% if made into a ladder

2 noob questions.

1) What does full distribution do if you select 4 territories to start?

2) Why the decrease in luck?

1 It means you can choose any territories you want instead of only one per bonus.

2 decrease in luck allows skill to become a greater factor, there will be no lucky stands

I'd rather not have full distribution, although that is purely out of personal preference S:

I would love to see a 3v3 ladder. A few players who i play with regularly have suggested they would consider a membership if there was a 3v3 ladder based on Europe map.

of course, i'd love a 3v3 euro ladder. this is my favorite game format.
the only problem is that we'd need many players to have an interesting ladder, but even the 2v2 world ladder does not have enough players.

Would it be that much different than 2v2 though? I feel like just as many people (maybe even more) play 3v3 euro no card than 2v2 carded world.

And Mike brings up a good point, some people would find an incentive to become members.

I suppose i'm a good case in point. I didnt see the value in purchasing the membership initially as i dont particularly enjoy the world map. Fortunately for me, Tor offered to buy me a membership to become has partner in the 2v2 ladder. Had there been a 3v3 ladder, i would have paid for a membership straight away.

As a furthermore, i would like to see the teams decided randomly for each match to really spice things up!

a Random Team 2v2 or 3v3 ladder would be interesting..

As WarLight's player size grows, there will definitely be opportunities for lots of ladders. However, I don't think there's currently enough to support a healthy 3v3 ladder right now, as even the 2v2 ladder is a little under-populated.

I'm confident that one day we'll have dozens of ladders, of all different shapes and sizes. It's logical to assume that a 3v3 on Europe will be one of those given how popular the settings are.

I agree with Mike. I'll also add: when I try to make games, 2 v 2s fill up slower than 3 v 3s. And Europe without cards is more popular than World with cards. If a 3 v 3 ladder were created, there would be at least as many good teams as the 2 v 2, and more people would want to be members.

A random 2 vs 2 ladder how does that work ranking wise?

I really would love the idea of Europe 3vs3 NC. I would buy a memebership if such a thing would exist. I dare say it's the most popular template (maybe aside from Auto-Games). Actually i'd much rather have a 3vs3 Europe ladder than maybe 3vs3 Double-Earth ladder. What i love most about this template is that even with 2 terr. per player auto distribution there is surprisingly little luck involved. Actually I'm positive that at least one of the template variations would be sufficient for a ladder to be "luckproof". Auto 3terr., auto 2terr., Manual Warlords 4, Manual Warlords 3, those all would make a great battlefield. I'm pretty sceptical about full-distr. or cities distr. mode. When 2 experienced teams play it the luck component of counte-picking iceland and ireland (for example) seems to be decisive in the long run. The same thing goes for airlift cards, too unpredictable to be luck free. Of course there could be a combo (2 manual warlords picks and 2 auto terr, from full distr.).

Still, if the discussion goes somewhere, I'd suggest a tournament (3vs3 Europe, NC, auto warlords, 3 territories, or manual 4 terr.). Of course the luck modifier would have to decrease (16% or 0%). If you decide to open such a tournament, please invite me in.

In my opinion 2vs2 ladder is under populated because of the map. It's too small imho, i think that big world would be much better.

Problem is, with a bigger map the games would take even longer. While that of course would not be a bad thing in regard to quality, teams would struggle even more to keep the 10 games per 3 month minimum under their belt required to stay on the ladder.

2v2 strat vs 1v1 strat...

both have same starting armies
2v2 has double base income
both have same wastelands
both have same cards/card gain rate -at a /turn basis assuming max gained-
2v2 requires twice as many victories per/turn just to card
both have same map, including the possibilities of chokepoints, doubled bonuses, etc.
1v1 is more likely to have effective clustered bonuses, and effective counter-picks -imho-
2v2 -unless I missed an update I heard might be coming out, which I probably did- has the possibility of one team getting half their picks before the other team
2v2 requires alot more overall picks per team to remove AI picks - 6+6 as opposed to just 6, or 8 as it originally was with 4 starting spots- Even if you double up last picks, that requires a total of 10 spots chosen that are considered viable, considering that all previous spots were chosen


I think 2v2 should have 3 spots per player, be played on a double-earth map that uses the med-earth setup, should gain cards at slightly under twice the speed of 1v1 -perhaps add 2 pieces over what is normally required in 1v1- and have twice as many wastelands...

barring that, I believe the card rate should be dropped, as well as base income... it would be idea to give them 3 starting spots, but not exactly doable with keeping players equal, and I do believe that 2 creates more entertainment and possibilities then 1 each.. -although if I recall I did better with 1..-


I think I might create a tourney with the current double earth map and the above settings -except 2 territs per, considering the lack of reliable starting locations that original earth provides-

and Diabolicus.. I believe it has been previous proposed, albiet not officially, and Fizzer had agreed that it is likely necessary to need to increase the time that team games remain on the books due to the increased time required to effectively play out each individual game.

and i think in order to remedy the lack of players (which i disagree with) the total number of games played per month could be lower than whatever is set on the ladder (like 6 or 7) maybe with like 3 at a time?

I mean, just look at real-time games and there are plenty or euro.....

Is 3v3 Ladder ready to play now? I just join membership recently. I wish to play 3v3 ladder rather than 2v2 ladder.
