3 Alien Planets to Take to end game. This just doesn`t sit well with me; how does everyone else feel about it? Thats like saying Guam was the end of WWII just because the Japanese took it first.

The 'Taking of the Alien planets' is just an objective to give an end of game objective.
Otherwise you can wait for the 'V' day to reach > 90 days to declare end of game.

I'm willing to take your views ; How or what would you do to determine
an end of game status ?
Take in consideration that there is no email to SysOp in game or
any easy way through TWGS Tedit to see winners except that players
may be dead or no players.

I use the first planets (usually Alien planets) in the planet records to determine game end status.

How would you do it ?
Keep in mind , whatever way YOU decide .. is the work YOU will do to prepare each REBAND every week.

And let know your server so we can test how well you keep up with your decision of ending conditions ...


Thank you for your ideas (if they merit any good findings) .

btw
It was the 2 hydrogen bombs that won the war , the planes that carried them were launched from Saipan only 136 mile away from Guam. Just a little history for those that care.

It's a really fun way to play. Do you try to take the alien planets first, or kill your opponents first? If you do take the planets first will you be able to defend your base, or perhaps you may want to use the alien planets as part of your defense, or you might attack your opponent when they are weak from taking an alien planet.
