As GameOP, That is totally your call, but the game will most likely stalemate if left at 3.

You also need to define the rules for the game.

Rules: Just steal Micro's :)

Deaths: 3 deaths was nice in 2001 when there was 15 teams in the HHT and almost zero offensive scripts. These days the people who "play" the game tend to die more; meaning those that get out and grid/explore/attack. Three deaths will encourage many to play super safe and potentially lead to a stalemate. Alternatively it might spur some aggressive corp to try and kill everyone in first 3 days, old school style in a kill them or loose the game quickly.

Last game Micro did with 20 deaths and no death delay was good. Meant you couldn't abuse the system with deaths but also encouraged a bit of risk taking.

OFFTOPIC
I actually think in the day and age of attack scripts anything we can do to encourage people to do something besides PGRID and hide in their base is good. IT's why I loved Micro's big game with huge photon delay a year or so ago.. could move around in a ship without being photoned/pdroped. Someone could come and attack you etc, still, but you had a CHANCE on manual. I also say this as one of the people with the most competitive pgrid scripts out there which gives me a huge advantage. Anyway, getting off topic :)

ONTOPIC
Much more deaths please but probably should get a few more opinions :)
I'll live it and adept either way..

I agree that 3 deaths would encourage base camping to the extreme. I am pretty reckless even with only a 10 death limit but 3 would definitely make me second guess doing anything. Would it make it an interesting chess game? yes. would it be the slowest chess game in the world? yes

Eh, I would fall more into hammer's "some aggressive corp to try and kill everyone in first 3 days" camp. Then again, "win quickly or die quickly" is usually my motto.

Back to the original question, I think 20 is too many unless it's no death delay. I think no more than 10 with a death delay, but up to 20 with no death delay to encourage a more aggressive type of attack. If death delay is on, that alone encourages bubble hugging; adding a lot of deaths means that it's harder to get rid of the bubble huggers on the rare occasion they pop their heads out of their gopher holes.

Wow! I remember you! Long time! Welcome back! Where's Mav? I heard he plays Eve Online now?

What's the corp size limit? :)

Our corp is full, but I'll vouch for you. Hollywood would be an excellent addition to any team.

high Cruncher, I haven't heard from Mav in a long time....he isn't a social media type guy...Or is Artemis, (aka Mike)...Lord Chaos is living in Florida, running a comic book store, with a nice family....I do miss this game, and when a person gets older they get less sleep, so here I am.

Any chance we can start it Friday night too?

Get a couple of weekend nights as the first night or two usually involve the most messing around.

Ice starts on Friday and that works ok?

Also 20 deaths sound good to me! no death delay would sound even better :)

ok,

if there are no objections we are going to with a death limit of 20, and no death delay.

We can also start on Friday. What time?

Friday would work great for me.

If anyone is short a member I'm still looking.

Or if there is others lurking who want to team up let me know.
