alright how about we start this. To begin with we'll rank everyone at the same level and have best of 5 series whenever one player challenges another.

-Map should be Random Land Map, Full Random or any map as long as both players agree. All games should be recorded and if possible a 3rd player watching the game.

-Random Civ, unless both players agree to picking civs.

-Normal Speed, (fast if both agree), map unexplored, population=200 or 300. Could be more i suppose as long as both players agree if not then the standard settings will be used.

-Initially Players with most wins gets ranked highest.
-If you want to challenge someone higher ranked than you then you must complete the best of 5.
-When you defeat someone higher ranked then you in a best of 5 series you automatically earn their rank regardless of record.

rules seem fairly reasonable. however, I would like to suggest a small change regarding map choice & civ choice:
- For game #1, follow the guidelines you set out.
- Afterwards, the loser of each game of the best of 5 should be allowed to choose the map, and choose a civ which the other player must mirror. (civ choice can be the option "random")

Additionally, each player should be allowed one restart (must be used in the first 2 minutes of the game), which he may use at his discretion for reasons like bugged maps (boars/sheep within forests) or for bad maps (terrible resource locations), etc.


about the ranking though...

lets say there's players A, B, C, and D, ranked 1, 2, 3, and 4 respectively.

1. is player D allowed to challenge player A?
2. if yes to question 1, when player D beats player A, he becomes rank 1 according to your rules. What happens to player A? Is he now rank 4, or is player C rank 4 & player A is rank 2?

I think the fact that its a 5 game series addresses the issues regarding the "bad res placement" or trapped boar. Anyone can have a bad game and 1 loss wont decide the whole series.

So my vote is no on restarts and no on loser picking map/civ.


As far as the rankings. You can only challenge players maximum of 3 ranks higher then you so rank 10 cant challenge rank 1.

You can only achieve top 3 ranks by beating those players in a best of 5 series. No other way. Winner and loser switch ranks. So if #4 beats #1 then they become #1 and the former #1 becomes #4.
