OK, I have those last three on the list now, which makes 10. Waiting a week to start will help me as well - World Dip, on top of Blitzkrieg, both starting at once is hard work!

nerdtilltheend - you're on the list, but I notice that the application was your first post. That's no problem provided you realise that playing these games means paying regular attention to your Private Messages and the Modern sub-forum which will be set up when we start - it isn't as straightforward as playing games on main site. If you're unsure how all that works, let one of us know.

The Blind Auction

Postby Pedros » 21 Oct 2015, 14:51

I haven't yet invited auction bids, but for those who haven't been involved with one before, this is how it works. Detailed rules are at viewtopic.php?f=148&t=20967&start=20#p287053

Firstly, it's blind! That means absolutely no discussion in public or private about what you think of which country, let alone what you might bid. Obviously, private discussions are largely down to your honour, but most players here are used to it and value it, so a casual PM to another player stands a good chance of being reported. Anybody who breaks this rule will be thrown out, no further questions asked.

Then, you have 200 points to use in the auction. You must use all of them and you must bid at least one for each country and the maximum per country is 160. The rules link provides examples of different ways to use these bids. If you bit the same number for more than one country, the order in which you mention them is taken as a preference between them. You are allowed to bid "No preference" for all countries or for a remaining group; in that case the available points will be divided equally (rounded down) and a random preference assigned.

Each country's highest bid is put into the calculation and highest for each country wins; ties are resolved randomly. When your highest bid fails to win the country your next highest bid becomes your "highest" one and is put into the next calculation, and so on until all countries have a player assigned.

48 hours from the starting gun will be allowed for bids to be submitted. This time I will be allowing Provisional bids to be submitted (enter "Provisional" or similar somewhere in the title or text) Once I have a full set of 10 non-Provisional bids I will process them.

I will check all bids as soon as I can to make sure they meet the rules, and ask for a new set if they don't - get them in early, because late bids may not get checked and any player who hasn't got a valid set in by the deadline will be replaced!

But it really isn't that complicated!

Modern (without Wings) : Looking for more player(s)

Postby Pedros » 21 Oct 2015, 18:37

tal32bur has been forced to withdraw, so I'm looking for players again. Most others (though not yet all) had replied confirming, so we may be able to get back on course fairly quickly.

If you're interested, post here or even better PM me

KingSolomon9 has bid for a place. I'm giving the reserves 24 hours, then he can have it. And there are still 3 players haven't confirmed anyway.
