    Default 10k Winter Tourney of the Nordic Woodland (Sunday, March 2)

    "It is better to avoid a tricky opponent than one who never lets up. The latter makes no secret of what he is doing, whereas it is difficult to find out what the other is up to."
    - Maurice (from the Strategikon)


    (An early Germanic hero, Arminius, at the Teutoburg Forest)

    10k Winter Tourney of the Nordic Woodland (Sunday, March 2)
    I thought we'd use the Nordic Woodland for the tourney map with no restrictions on rules or factions. It's 'anything goes' in the Nordic Woodland (Winter setting)! The map has lots of trees (meaning you won't have the best view of the overall battle if you fight in the forest). So it should be fun under the Nordic sun!

    Special Tourney Rules:
    - Season: WINTER
    - Map: NORDIC WOODLAND
    (host has to set these conditions or the game is nullified)

    TOURNAMENT DETAILS

    You can use them if you wish. If you look at the map, you can actually deploy in the open area if you like

    I have a rather dumb question, somewhat relating to this. Can you play RTW Vanilla online with a mod such as RTR? If so, I might have to join one of these tournaments.

    Can't you go online right now and see if you can join games? Or host them?

    You can play mods online, but almost everyone plays R:TW (1.5) online. In the Chat Lobby, there's a number of people who play the Napoleonic mod.

    Just a warning: you'll have a hard time getting a game with anyone unless you use R:TW 1.5 or the Napoleonic mod. I once spent 30-60 minutes begging someone to play me in Barbarian Invasion.

    Aye. So you can't somehow play Vanilla online if you have a mod installed?

    Is there a way to have a copy of the mod and of Vanilla? If it's possible PM me so we don't take up space in this thread.

    Have you though about reinstalling the game (or already tried that?) or just formatting your harddisk?

    Wow, another one. I feel like I'm missing out on so much. Maybe I should host one of my own tourneys But I wouldn't get many people because of the time zones...

    I'd like to join (again) but I again doubt I will be able to get that much time free on Sunday. It may be a while before I can try one of these, especially with AP exams coming up this spring...

    Maybe you can get all of the Australian players together or something for an event. I used to know of a handful of Aussies who wanted to play.
