Topic Subject: When can I find you on the zone?
posted 05-05-99 12:06 PM ET (US)   
Best regards from Sphinx (zone name- Centaurie). I have been having more and more difficult time locating good games on the zone lately. I usually check in around 9:30 pm ET-hardly see familiar names anymore. Some are there but already playing . So, I wonder if you guys could post your zone nicks with the times you usually are around so we can get some more games going If you wish-post your favorite settings too.

Hey Sphinx,

That's the reason that we started the APC! We were sick of playing games with constant taunters, speed jakers, lamers....

I'll kick the APC list up to the top. It has a list of 30+ forummers who wanted to play with/against people who enjoyed the game.

I like the following settings:

no reveal
no DM
speed 1.0 (i'll tolerate 1.5 but no speed 2.0)
any map
random civs
any pop (even 25)
standard victory

My Zone name is APC_Scarab

Hi sphinx

Scarab is right. There is a long list of zone nicks on the APC post. The player skill levels range widely, but the attitudes are good. Teams can usually be balanced out pretty well. I'll message you next time I see you. You are already on my zone friends list.

I use the zone a lot, and would love to play someone that I know from here or around. My zone name is Hannibal1985, and feel free to add me to your zone friends list. My favourite games are ones that have no seige engines and no priests. Also I don't really like sea games very muchand single unit games like Legions only or chariot only games. Variety is what I like. I usually like playing on teams to. I will probably be on today so give me a shout.

Although the APC list has a list of names, I don't think it has the time people are online.

During the week, I'm usually online from 0:00am to 3:00am GMT. On weekends, from 3:00pm to 11:00pm GMT, but zone is quite laggy and it's very difficult to get a game going...

My favorite settings:

speed 1.0 or 1.5, 1.0 is best
no reveal
no DM
any civ (you can ban Shang if you wish)
any map
default resources
standard victory
standard age (nomad is ok)
no full tech tree (this is a must)
pop 50-100 (ok, I can play with more...)
team games (3v3 is quite nice)

I think it would be nice if the APC home page had this information for every member. What do you think?

May your weapons be sharp and your ping be green

Thank you, guys. I know guite many of you-afterall, I have been playing this game since the days of Yamato rushing My friends list is like few hundred names long! But lately, when I log in, I only see about 10-15 guys active and most are playing already. So, I just wanted to double check if you are available when I am on or show up earlier/later. Not to mention that many are playing EQ now, Aghrrr

Hey sphinx, I usually check in around the same time yu do, so add me to your list. My RoR skills need a little polishing since I started playing EQ, so I gonna start playing RoR again.

Hey sphinx/centaurie! We played together last night (I hadn't read this thread yet). Had a blast - even if you did kill Donovan_Darius so fast I never even SAW him! Any time you wanna rock again, w/ or against me... APC_armagedn.

Thanks for a good time!

Yeah, thanx, it was a good game. Even though, I didn't do much after tool-you guys totally rocked the remaining two opponents. But having a Hittite right next to you is a dangerous thing-better take him out before he makes a move

I will be there this weekend-either Friday or Saturday night-will look for you

Hmm...I am usually on around 9-11:45 pm eastern time. On Friday nights I stay up all night

Ok guys, before you start patting yourselfs on the back, remember that I am an ultra sucky player and am a liability on any team I play on.

(Still, that was the most determined Tool rush I've ever faced!)
