Did I say that :roll:

Actually I am keen and look forward to the challenge. PBEM wise it won't be too hard as the reinforcement data is available for the entire campaign via the two existing campaigns. But I stress it would only be a two player game and would contain some of those lovely 'game ending' VLs which may or may not have been mentioned yet...

As far a single player full campaign this would certainly be a challenge for an AI programmer as Roger has mentioned. Still, if the H2H works out okay I might give that a try as well.

There's my winter taken up ;)

Tournament?

Robjess wrote:we could seek to open registrations when the game is released (soon soon soon!) and then commence the Tournament when the first 32 people who purchase it register. There you go.. there is an incentive to buy.. buy now so you can play in the Tournament :)


good idea Rob

What is required to do this? Can i help?

Nope this is pretty straight forward.. I just need to get a message and a thread together just prior to release so people can register.. as I said.. the first 32 people with the game (and it should be quick to get as it will be available as a digital download) can play in the Tournament.

If demand is high, we can run another 32 player bracket shortly after (restricted to people who didnt take part in the first bracket - like I said if we get the numbers) and then the winners of both brackets can meet in a play off :)

Spread the word!

Summer? Summer aint until December in my part of the world :) BiN looks very very close.. but I cant confirm or deny any release dates because I dont know any.. but like I said.. I dont think its too far away.. start putting your money side, and/or buying your wife/girlfriend/partner flowers now..

Just a quick note that the Matrix forum for BiN has started up. Nothing there yet to read, but it might be worthwhile to check out in the future.

The crucial question here should be : do we get a medal for playing the BIN release tournament ? :twisted:

plus even if you did know, you wouldn't be telling without permission.
