I'd like to play another instance of the playershuffle series and need three players rated between ca. 1100 and ca. 1300 (the range isn't carved in stone, but my experience in 8 such games so far is that it's more fun if players have a similar skill level).

Idea: We play four games with identical settings on the base map, factions (including expansion factions) and round #1 faction order, with each player playing a different faction in each of the games. The setup will be random, and the faction selection and sequence will be either random too (using https://ertrzyiks.github.io/terra-mystica-lobby/ - this was used in the 1st installment) or by selection from the players (in rating order - the approach of the 2nd installment). The faction seletion process will be agreed by the players.

Details:
1) The games will be somewhat synchronized, especially the placement of the initial dwellings and picking of bonus tiles; after that the start of each round shall be in sync (i.e. if one game already starts round 5 while another is still in round 4, the round 5 game shall be stalled by the start player).
2) Since factions will be picked without any relation to the setup, it is quite likely that some factions will be "obviously" better than others in the given setting. The balancing against this is not inside the game, but rather by the fact that each player will play each faction once. So whatever rating you may lose with the bad faction you can earn with the good one. The two installments so far have shown that skill will still dominate in many cases.


Examples:
1st installment: PlayerShuffle01, PlayerShuffle02, PlayerShuffle03, PlayerShuffle04
2nd installment: playershuffle05, playershuffle06, playershuffle07, playershuffle08

Re: Looking for 3 players for another player shuffle series (4 games)
I would also like to play again, but I think we should try the 3rd option of picking factions after seeing the initial setup. I suggest asking either thejordan or TerraTurtle to join us because this is actually a test for a possible Individual World Championship format. This is still a different from the team world championship that Silly words is running since not everyone has to play with the same factions and no round sync.

After seeing the setup all players pick the faction that they want to play then the other games will be setup with those factions in the same seat order with the players rotating the seat order.

I want just to play, not testing for any greater format. And both you and Sebastian are out of the intended rating range.

Haha, I guess winning 6 of 8 with a 2nd and a 3rd (which I made a mistake at the last minute to lose 2nd) can cause me some issues! laugh

Re: Looking for 3 players for another player shuffle series (4 games)
Well then, I guess we'll have 2 sets of 4 games setup. So just post if you want to join either Doc's group of games or my group of games, or both.

Doc's will be with his suggested setup (blind or random factions) and mine will be with picked factions as I would like to test that 3rd format with supposedly "optimized" factions for the setup.

Surprisingly, the round setup for the 2nd group of games was somewhat optimal for 2 of the factions (though the BON setup wasn't)!

Could you please edit the topic to include my group? It doesn't make sense to start another one.

Do any of you (Per, Ola, Flik) want to join my group?

I'm not planning on starting my group right away. The 2nd Test for a F&I tournament is a priority.

Great, so we're four now.

@Per, Flikkenstein, kruppy: I've created the first game so we can discuss there and don't pollute the forum with our stuff.

@James: I suggest you open a separate thread for your stuff to avoid mix-ups.

I'm sorry, but I have the three players now. Maybe you can join the group which James is putting together?

I've put a [Closed] tag on this thread as the three spots I had to offer are already filled. But since you guys are four players, maybe you want to set up a similar set of games between you.

6tevium, Stones, gambrinus, and jari

I think all of you are interested in playing in the Fire and Ice Test League, correct? I also think some of you are wanting to try 9 games in both tests? Are you sure you want to add these 4 (or 5) on top of those at the moment?
