Season XXX will begin on Sep 3rd at midnight GMT. See this link for the time in your own timezone or a countdown: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=2017-09-03+midnight+GMT

The template is 1v1 Succession Wars - Lim Full Dist, LD: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?TemplateID=1075570

Good luck!

Edit: If you don't like the template, you don't have to play. I know some of you are very picky about what templates you're willing to play. But try to avoid whining about it, as it just brings down the mood for those who are here to have fun.

Huh. I was going to say an unoriginal "XXX" joke, but honestly I'm too shocked after seeing this template. It's all sorts of weird...

Nice, another season starts soon. I would have prefered, if half of the seasons the template is determined by user vote.

I did not play the chosen template yet, so can't tell anything about it yet.

Don't listen to the negative nancies Fizzer!

I suspect this season might be even better than Season 10

Sarcasm overflow. Just to let you know last time I got a warning for being sarcastic in WL-forum. But this one will be the season killer I fear.

Well, at the bottom of a heart we all know why this template - just to avoid Master of the Dead getting three wins in a row. Its roll a dice and see how it goes. This template seems to be favoring stacking and force-finishing imho.

This is a very unique template indeed but i don't think it deserves the hate it gets in this thread to be fair.

We all know Fizzer likes his unusual settings on seasonal once in a while and this season will be 1 of those with it having both Local Deployment and armies per territory which has last been used during French Brawl season i believe.

The combination if possibilities to pick might be low but this makes ordering of picks and first few turns of play very important. I've got an example where i had 3 picks in 1 area where my oppponent had 4 in and i've eliminated him from that area in just a mere 3 turns, more because of the fact i won turn 1 and then he just ignored that area in total giving me a huge boost due to the income for amount of territories.

It has a good amount of strategy involved in the template but most won't look further then just the basic settings like it having Local Deployment active.

It's amazing imo, You can see why Fizzer picked this template cause it really makes picking strategy very complex here. Since you can't pick any of the direct income and instead have to pick around the numerous one bonuses. It really makes you think in a whole new light. The play is intense also, There's simply no way you can eliminate your opponent from turn 1 simply because it's impossible. So you gotta just expand into nothing but +1s. I actually am pleased that the game has developed into a football kind of tensity, Where a +1 income is a goal. More goals = You win.

It's just refreshing from 1v1 2v2 3v3 RTL and MDL. That we get a template of this uniqueness and I think it's so unique we don't know what it is, So this seaonal will give us time to get to know the template and hopefully have a few guides in place before the seasonal starts!

Best of skill everyone!

Maybe someone remembers this: https://youtu.be/fZ4dBSZDVeo

It was not exactly the same template, but the distribution mode stays. It was rated 3/10 by the commentators back then. Good luck everyone. Hope i don't get downvoted again :'(

Here are some games I played on it. I have no clue how to play this properly so don't take my gameplay as a reference on how to play this. Opponents seemingly had even less of a clue how to play this so it made weird games.

I appreciate your breakdowns Plat and wakanarai. It does play much different than other templates. Just because someone doesn't understand it right away, doesn't mean it is bad...or good for that matter.

The first 3-4 games I played on Elitist Africa I hated it. I still don't really like it (only because I have not found my groove on it), yet I am glad it is used so much because it is a totally different way of playing.

MOD, that review you have is not even close to the same settings. That was the first iteration of many. The comments on it are talking about the capital cities (2 income), which don't exist. And the armies per territory is double (was 1 per 10, is 1 per 5). Also, if you listen to that, I guarantee at least 2 people reviewing it had never played it. Two people said it is a good idea, but the capitals mean you only have 1 strategy, which is to pick right around those 2s.

i wonder how many of the haters actually tried the template before commentating about it.

thank goodness fizzer asked people to refrain from negative trash talking, otherwise this would be filled with people offering their negative comments :p
