I was just wondering...

A few experienced players have, here and there, offered their time to show us rookies how to execute various strats in some online games. Also there have been some (sometimes heated) debates on differing strats and opinions.

What if we were to organize a little Heaven tournament where we pitted combination expert/rookie teams against one another? This would:

1) give us rookies real good hands-on training but since we would be allied with one or two experienced players we wouldn't (necessarily) die an ugly death in the first 15 minutes and never get to see some of the mid or even end game strats.

2) allow you experienced players to finally put your strats to the test

3) give all of us a whole lot to talk about in this forum - post-game analysis, war stories, strat comparisons, etc...

Anybody interested? If yes, reply as such and I'd be glad to make a proposal for how to organize such a tourney.

AoW_Demon_Child has been talking about holding a Return to Rome tourny, I'll check with him. If he does I'll probably be hosting so I don't think I can play... Oh well

Count me in, but i might not play. i only play certain settings i ONLY play DEATH MATCH, POP 200, No full tech, Conquest, Reveal map, huge map, so i guess im not very skilled since i can only play those settings

I guess the broad game settings would largely be dependent on what the masses vote for. But seeing as we (rookies) want to learn proper strats that really work and the experienced players will want to compare strats and other theories, here are the settings that I suggest:

* pop = 50
* RM, conditions = standard (to see the most combinations
of strategies and gameplay techniques)
* No reveal map
* Of course - no cheating

The type of geography such as islands/inland/highland etc...
could be allowed to be determined amongst the 4 or 6 people who play each tournament game.

If those are the settings then count me out! I wont play pop=50 but i might play RM as a "rookie" trying to learn how to do RM.

Well, those are only my suggestions. It would be for all involved to decide - majority rules. Just keep in mind the main purposes of the tournament and that it isn't to just have a big DM battle.

I would love to see a Tourney on a Medit/Cont. map, Conquest, Pop 150 or 175, Default Resourses and No Reveal map.
