Hi everyone! Happy Easter!
I would like to announce first economy Widelands tournament!
The tournament is to measure how good is your economy. There will be no direct battles between players. So it will be the first tournament about building, not destroying here.
What are the basic rules?
You should start the single-player game with:
- Map: The Nile (official version)
- Starting position: #1 (blue), headquarters, tribe of your choice
- Type of game: Endless game (no fog)
Your goal is to produce as much soldier power as possible. There will be several categories where you can win:
- Highest soldier power after 12 hours of the game
- Highest soldier power after 24 hours of the game
- Highest increase of soldier power between 12 and 24 hour of the game
- Highest number of fully promoted soldiers after 24 hours of the game
So if you want to participate in any of the category, you just start your game, save after about 12 hours of the game (screenshots are welcome here too) and after 24 hours. Answer this topic with your results and send me a replay. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include also number of the Widelands version (dev XXXX, build 19 or so) for reference. After confirming the results, I will update lists in this post. I will provide replays from all participants for the reference.
There is no limit for participants to send their games. You can try to build better economy empire and push your stats even higher!
The tournament ends within 2 full months, so you have time till 31st of May 2018.
More specific rules
Highest soldier power after some hours of the game
The best check for that stats is to use in-game stats and picking "military power". That will allow to see exact power of the soldiers. That is the base for our tournament values. The more you have, the better it is. The amount of time was picked to compare two types of players: those who can establish working economy very fast and they produce as much soldiers as possible from beginning of the game and players who like to build the economy after some time and think that they beat the first group of players . If you want, you can participate only with the first category.
Highest increase of soldier power
This value came from substracting two numbers: soldier power after 24 hours and soldier power after 12 hours. This should compare if the player can constantly produce lots of high-qualified soldiers in a short time. So if you think that you can't produce much soldiers in previous two categories, you can try to pick this one. Can you have 20 labyrinths or trainings camps working for 100% constantly? This category is for you!
Highest number of fully promoted soldiers
The rules for this category is a bit different from previous ones. Here I ask players who wants to participate in this category to build lots of big military buildings next to each other (perfectly fortresses, castles). I will count how many fully promoted soldiers will be inside of those buildings. Advice here: try to use a shore of other spot where counting is easier. Also you can count the number by yourself and paste the results in your participation post. It will make the life easier . If you build smaller buildings, it will also count, but will be harder to count. Make the life easier . Soldiers inside warehouses (ports & headquarters) don't count!
