Greetings Programs... MicroBlaster network is proud to present the Haunted Halloween Tournament 2014.

HHT 2014 is dedicated to the memory of Space Ghost, and those that miss him.

This is an open tournament. No sign up as I would like to encourage anyone to play. You can play solo, BYOC, or form a corp after game starts.

Hosted by: MicroBlaster Network
Server: twgs.microblaster.net
Port: 2002

• Unlimited Time
• 1200 Turns
• 5000 Sectors
• No Delays

• Practice Game P - Open NOW!
• Tournament Game T - Scheduled to open: Saturday October 25th at 9pm Eastern Time

http://microblaster.net/GameDetail.aspx ... d=1&game=T

Game duration will be 30 days. At the end of day 30 on the "V" screen, the game will be considered stale if there is no clear dominating team or player. In the event of a stale game, I will pick the winner. The winner of the game will be the player with the most <blank>, but you won't know what <blank> is until the game is over.


This will be the same edit as last year:

All I need to know is who picked the settings, and is this on a different server than the other one we were on? Pings were terrible and they were not steady. My ping was anywhere from 94 to 3500, I can't play like that.

Ping seems much better, and lag appears to have disappeared.


So who's playing this game?

As of this moment; I'm not playing. No disrespect to Micro or his Server, but I doubt I'll ever play a serious game on a v2 Server.

Yes I found out what my problem was or had been in the last game. I think it is better now.

They are the same settings & TWA as last year.

This is a new server at my new job's office. The old server was at my friends house. Both are on Cox Communications, but there should be much less traffic at my office. We will also be upping the bandwidth at the main office soon to improve performance at our branch locations.

Players 	 
This Month: 567
Last Month: 548
This Year: 4,258
Last Year: 5,714
Total: 18,186
Player totals are unique players over all servers.

Shouldn't be that hard to find a player according to JP!
…seriously though, in the real world, corp size of 15, is a bit optimistic.

cant help myself. Too easy a stab

I told Zip last week how many players we had. and I told Phreak 3 days ago. not complaining but they knew a head of time how many we had and still felt the need to build a 12 man corp. we are still playing though.

Well in all honesty, I also heard an apparent rumor that you guys had 12 players. So that being said, lets stop bashing someone for putting together a corp to match what we thought was what needed to compete. Once the game had started, its hard to ask people to quit, I would rather play on an even up board, but I want to play in this tourney, I don't think I should have to quit or ask anyone to quit because a corp could not get enough players. Lets face it, the corp limit in HHT is 15, you brought in 3 players, and your complaining. You should have seen that one coming.
If we would have had a sign up sheet, this could have been avoided, I'm not blaming anyone, just making a suggestion for future events.

I would have lowered the corp size if I had realized it was set so high. I also forgot to set a death limit, and death delay is off... What is done is done... Corp one is going to play despite the odds, play on and have FUN...

Not a problem. Most big games we're mega corped against. Only now they can exchange resources more freely.
