I will be hosting Multi-Attack training everyday from 12-3pm California Time.
Most people are unfamiliar with the feature and it has lead to people spamming and declaring me P.E (public enemy) in diplomacy games before the game has even begun.

Game Types:
Super Diplomacy
24 Player F.F.A

These will be real-time games with at least a 5min boot time.

The purpose of these games will be to draw attention to the multi-attack feature.

A Game I played today: http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=5782199 and it;

Had people calling me names, saying I am cheating, Saying I am a Hacker and lots more.

I find it understandable that some people would feel upset if someone declared on them, then one the next turn their country was completely gone.
But if you learn how to play multi-attack, you can learn how to properly defend as well.

I feel other players cannot properly learn to use this in-game feature unless we actually play games with it enabled.

Instead of trolling this thread or being childish, why dont we try and educate our fellow warlighters and to this feature that is causing so much controversy and end the name calling and hate once and for all.

Cheers.

If you really like Multi attack you should join the leagues, and test your strength

I don't like multi-attack because it means that there's no way to defend. If you have a border of ten territories with another player who has equal income, you would have to spread your armies across the border, while he would only have to stack on a single territory, get through the wall and rampage your bonuses.

Yes, that's why there are are gift cards, abandon and blockade cards. Multi-attack seems meaningless to people because all you do is attack, but no one has been exposed to the right settings. I for one love Multi-attack, and with the right settings it can be a beautiful feature, but too many people have made just "attack" only templates, which corrupts people's perspective of the mode.


All I hear is "Multi-attack has no true skill! All you do is attack and hope that you get the right spot!" Obviously, it's not just that. Multi-attack basics entail you to blindly attack territories, but once you get the hang of it, along with finding a good map and settings, you can plan out your defense, look at where your enemy might be, and then you will be able to actually attack with precision, and not just blind lines around the map.

Multi-attack by itself now that I have experienced enough of it is only marginally fun for a few quick FFA or even team games. 1v1 is a whole different story; you need to have cards and decent settings to make Multi-attack fun and challenging.

Primarily I am referencing the Blitzkreig template (I believe made by Ruthless Bastard) and I regard it as the holy book of Multi-attack.

http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?TemplateID=258983

Pretty much the perfect settings for Multiattack: good card settings (many blockades/abandons for stopping enemy "Hurricanes" - or massive paralyzing attacks into your bonuses) attacking/defending armies settings (to get bigger bonuses and attacking), luck modifiers and general settings (distributions, etc.).

Anyway, back on topic, Righ...
I like the initiative, but is a World Diplomacy really suited for learning Multi-attack? Just my opinion.

Great post Awsomeguy I very much feel the same way. If any of you played the board game risk it is multi attack as well. There are ways to defend you just have to tread a little bit more carefully since your opponents attack orders tend to be more sudden and deliberate.

As to righ it does seem a bit underhanded from what the other posts describe. maybe at least put in the description that it is multi-attack so you won't get such backlash.

World Diplomacy works because it is the most balanced. It gives the players a chance to ally and defend against someone that is a p.e much faster as well.
That is, if you actually stick with your allies. I see so much flip-flopping on alliances in diplomacy games it almost makes you wonder why they are playing the game in the first place.

With the right settings, I think multiattack on the Sumo map (http://warlight.net/Map?ID=5062) might be interesting. In the next month or so I plan to improve the aesthetics and clarity of the map. Once I do that I will mess around with making a multiattack template.

Using a balanced map or scenario with random wastelands and automatic distribution could be fun. People would be tentative in their attacks and the wastelands would function as landmines in the no man's land. Such a template might be a bit like trench warfare without machine guns or barbed wire.

I could also teach MA, just make a game with me :)

I agree with Awesomeguy's post (except on Blitkreig, I agree it's good.. but imo far from a holy book:p)

I belive all the MA league templates are good too, especially the first one.

QI, with the right settings MA could be fun on (almost) every map :p Random westelands/auto distb. would open for a lot of luck.. but I guess that'll be part of the fun :D
