Thoughts on FFA: 5 way to have fun and ruin friendships.: 6/4/2013 02:04:25

I almost never played FFAs except for the begin when i was noob. I did that because it was the most similar to Risk (which is where we all come from, all the Creation stuff i bullshit).

Than, to get back to the memories i tried to play some games again, just for the memory of the old times.


We can start saying that FFA is a pervers game. Really, it is the perversness for antonomasia. Especially when you play without fog and the numer of players is odd. Take 3 FFA: everyone tries to do it's best to expand and keep the others from expanding. But there is a subtile equilibrium. Once you start fighting someone, the third one's chances to win increseases and so on, until someone decides to make the decisive move, gets bored or gets booted.


Strange things happens in FFAs.
It may happens that sometimes, all players are colluding (meant or not) and they eliminate you in 3 turns.

And if you wonder what's going on, why even the one who didn't have any reason to attack you, is doing it, you will get this answer:




Yeah..you read well...he capitalized on me...lol...I wish to know which capital he gained by doing that :/


Otherwise why just don't become someone's pet? Yes...there are some player with Jigsaw like sadomasochistic tendencies, and after gaining an advantage because you, after trying to survive, and doing so you broke a 3way alliance making BOTH of them allying against you, the winning player decides to make you fight against the other player losing. Worse than chickens illegal fights!



As it wasn't enough, they both had a previous old agreement and after 30 turns they voted to end.


Goddamit. That's sick. In an FFA you will always have to betray someone to survive. You can stay somewhere and wait for you end, or, you can try to ally with every player letting them fight (but that, with no fog would look suspicious). Otherwise you can ally with some and declare war to others, but once the others are done, you have to break your alliance before he understands that you want to betray him.

In the end, anger will takeover and all the players you betrayed will collude against you because you were a traitor. What they don't get is that if you don't do it, soon or later you will be dead already.

Is it worth playing FFAs to have some quite, calm game? ----> NO, better play 1v1 and become a masterrace.

But, if you want to see people raging and insulting eachother because of betrayments, that's definetly worth it!
See you next time with other gameplay thoughts.


But, it's worht

I could make two no fog 1v1 games on this map (you probably put auto-dis too?) and then complain about how 1v1 games suck in Warlight.

well, ffas can be quite frustating (=lot's of dumb players out there). But if you can survive the first few turns and you are a good diplomat (and possibly making yourself look weaker than you are, or at a position to reverse stuff when the big guys start fighting each other) you should probably be able to play welll.
Your problema is that you probably are a neard, as such your personal skills are quite low and can't manage around people's personalities (even if they are stupid)

I play mostly without alliances in FFA's besides if it is a xx player FFA but in smaller ones I just keep the peace with them and let them also know it that I don't want war but also will not attack.
If I make FFA games it is mostly without the personal message option so they already need to team up through the main chat so everybody can read it.

I played 3900 games in 1000 days with an average of 3,9 games per day.
You played 2170 games in 470 days with an average of 4,6 games per day.

I shown myself to be far from a "neard" while you are just a "keyboard lion". I bet everything that if you show us from and attendible source how you look, you are far far "neardier".

Red, there is no correlation between one's looks and emotional intelligence.

If there is any correlation at all, it's caused by shame and social isolation from feelings of being unwanted.

Red, are you really using maths to prove that you're not a nerd?

And you use a difference of less than one game per day as an argument.

I played 531 games in 493 days with an average of 1,07707911 games per day. Take that, NERDS!

If you think that every not serious remark is meant to be amusing then you are mistaken. Some may be used, for example, to emphasize one's point. You really seem to be lacking interpersonal skills.

You seem to lack sarcasm. When i'm amused i act differently, i was just "laughing" at your point without even lowering myself to answer to you. You know that you said a bullshit there, and you don't need me to enlighten you.

What happened to you latnox? Joining the calvin klein clan changed you a lot. This thread was about MY thoughts about the FFA with NO FOG (you remarked it before with the 1v1, an ffa with fog is not an ffa imo), not about accusations threw by some SCHIZOfrenic or you trying to hijack the topic and provoque me. I please you and whoever came with this sort of stupid assumption to keep for themselves, i'm not here to prove at random people my "interpersonal skills" or who know what else you will come with. The image i give about me on the internet might be or not the rappresentation of my person in real life. Do you think i feel offended if you tell me what do you think about me? I don't care that much neither in real life as I and only I know what are my skills, what is my knowledge, my emotional intelligence and everything. Not you. Not random avatars on Warlight.

Last but not least, as you somehow criticized even my original post, it was written in a non-serious mode, ffas made me laugh a lot and also get angry sometimes. So don't come here saying that I complain about FFA. If the subtility of my posts is not fully receped, than just let it go and don't even get in the discussion. Otherwise a somehow funny witness becomes a rage-virtual-war.

So you are not drunk, unfortunately. So I will take your advice and won't involve myself here anymore.
