This idea has been rolling around in my head for a few days.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
6v6v6v6

Four Generals: four proven and highly experienced players with both the time for and interest in leading a contingent of Warlighters against highly-trained foes

Twenty Underlings: twenty players of varying ability and experience willing to take orders from a general, yet competent enough to work autonomously if directed

These 20 players can join freely or be recruited by the generals, but will not be freely assigned to teams. Rather, players will be drafted via forum in an ABCD style format.

Once the teams have been assigned, they will be given two weeks to train as they see fit (less if everyone is ready). Generals would be responsible for familiarizing themselves with their underlings and learning their strengths and weaknesses, as well as researching the terrain and formulating strategy.

The battleground would be Large USA. This map is unbalanced and highly flawed, requiring that the generals be highly knowledgable, or at least highly receptive to the knowledge and experience of their underlings.

As underlings, players would be expected to follow the orders of their generals, even if that means taking 5 armies into Texas. Generals would be free to run their team as they wished; micro-managing orders, giving individual goals, using meat-shields, etc. Failure to abide by a general's wishes would most certainly result in public shaming.

The specific game settings are yet to be worked out, but I was thinking something along these lines:

|>-4 manual starting territories/player with a fair number of starting armies
|>-Normal Fog
|>-Small number of medium-sized wastelands (i.e. obtainable after a few states' bonuses are gathered)
|>-Gift, Airlift+,Blockade-,Surveillance,Sanctions-
|>-Instant Surrenders
|>-No AI

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Anybody interested?

not thinking of myself as a general, but would love to join and learn from a more experienced general. I have founf the weakness of the team tournaments is the lack of leadership. Hard for me to understand why people think a team of 6 people doing their own thing will win; unless the other team isdoing the same.

Nah, we should reserve the general positions to players with at least 1000 games and 40% wins.

This seems like fun, and I would be a general if it didn't seem like such a time commitment. Great idea tho.

I'm at 66% I would rather be a follower but if no one else volunteers then I will. I think that general should have played like atleast 700+ games and 50% win record

It's good to see that many people are interested. Indeed my intentions were for a the generals to be 1000+ games with proven ability. Does anyone have suggestions for how we could adjust this to make it better?

@Bishes Would you be more interested (or do you think it would be better for others) if it was scaled down to 16 players and set on a smaller map?

I think Big USA was probably a poor choice for the first attempt. I think Quad Earth 4v4v4v4 might work better. With the Four Worlds distribution mode, it would allow for more strategy.

Would any "Generals" be interested in this if we shortened the "training" time and used Quad Earth?

I think many more potential generals would be interested on a smaller map. I'm currently swamped with uni work and such so I won't be able to give this the time it deserves.
