The Holidays are over and Paradox isn't threatening us with another save-breaking patch! I think its time we went back to killing each other in the name of world domination and cultural enrichment. So, let's get Game 4 rolling. I still have a bit of a busy schedule for the month of January, so we'll have a nice and long sign up period. Some of these rules have changed and some of them can change during the sign up period. I'll make sure to clearly state when a rule has changed. Saturday Sessions -- Sessions will now only be from 7 PM EST to 12 PM EST on Saturdays. 125 Development Limit -- This is being done to allow for more interesting nation choices and to prevent extremely early game snowballing. Nations with subjects will follow the same development formula used by the great power rankings -- half of your subjects development is added to the nation's base development. Lower skilled players can petition to play larger nations, but there is a hard cap of 300 development. Nation Locks -- Nations selected by people will be locked to them unless an agreement is made by players to share a nation. AI Control -- If during a session you decide to leave early, we'll continue playing and the AI will take over your nation. If we start a session and you're not there, than the AI will take over your session. Paired Country Play -- Cooperative play is encouraged. Considering the way AI Control works when someone can't make it to a session, having a second player as a backup will help the nation afloat in such a situation. Normal -- Depending on the players who sign up, I may switch this back to Hard. But I'd like to encourage newer and lower skilled players in joining us.
