Looking for Players? AI War Sortie Bulletin - Winter 2013
Hi-o! Something something snow soon, so something something games! This is a place to find those people to play with! The old Summer 2013 topic with 31 replies can be found here.

Please remove your post if you no longer are able to play so both parties can be annoyed less; subscribing to this topic will give you instant notifications on new replies. Make a post with the bullet points below for ease of readability, and add others to your friend list who qualify to your preferences and timezones. Please keep other chat and replies out of this topic.

- Country/timezone:
- Time availability:
- Expansions:
- Dedication to a long-term game:
- Certainty of ability to host game:
And other aspects you find relevant to your game-finding experience.

"Dedication to a long-term game" spanning from 12 hours to 24 to 46 and beyond over multiple sessions: are you willing to commit? Many folks really want stable and reliable partners for the best AI War experience instead of those who will start a game, but will decide to drop out sooner than preferred.

"Certainty of ability to host game"; are you 100% certain someone else can connect to your AI War game, or do you need Hamachi, Tunngle, or other virtual private networks (VPN)? Keep in mind only the host needs to ensure ports have been forwarded; if those are open, then those who don't have ports open can probably join without issue. All players must use the same UDP port in their networking options menu ingame; the default is 32320. Those using a VPN in most cases will not be required to port forward, although in some instances it may still not work. You should try alternating hosts and ensuring there are no connection errors indicated by the VPN interface in such cases, and while bloaty, Tunngle seems to work for many cases where Hamachi has failed.

Please check this forum topic[www.arcengames.com] if you are wondering why the game does not have an in-game matchmaking service; it also includes more ways of finding other people to organize games.

- Country/timezone: USA/EST
- Time availability: Most afternoons and evenings
- Expansions: The first 3
- Dedication to a long-term game: I'm willing to play one, but my schedule can be crazy so it might be hard to set up multiple sessions.
- Certainty of ability to host game: Probably can't (4 GB RAM and 15/1 Mbs connection)

I'm still a noob and I would prefer to play other noobs, or experienced players who have patience.

- Country/timezone: Romania UTC+02:00
- Time availability: Entire weekends and evenings on weekdays
- Expansions: All
- Dedication to a long-term game: No problem if over multiple sessions,if you want me too play 8 hours straight it might be quite a challenge

- Time availability: Most nights after 6 PM CST

- Expansions: All

- Dedication to a long-term game: Not an issue. I have spent 30+ hours on the 2 games I have completed so far

- Certainty of ability to host game: Have hosted via Tunngle

Still new to the game even after 130 hours of game play so dont expect me to be perfect or know everything. I usually dont enjoy games where the players pause to micro all the time.

Add me on steam if you want another person to play with.

- Country/timezone: USA EST (North Carolina)

- Time availability: My sleep schedule is very erratic. Right now I'm nearly nocturnal. Awake from 5-6pm until 8-9am the next morning.

- Expansions: All of them

- Dedication to a long-term game: As long as noone sets us up the bomb, activates the Godzilla Threshold, or needlessly ♥♥♥♥es of the A.I., I'm ready for a lengthy, methodical, coordinated victory.

- Certainty of ability to host game: I'm in a very rural part of the state. There's is no option on top-teir internet speed around here. So I'm not even going to attept to host.

I have Skype, Razer Comms, and TeamSpeak for chatting while gaming.

Beta patches only

- Country/timezone:
USA, CST (UTC-6)

- Time availability:
mornings 0700-1200

- Expansions:
all plus beta patches

- Dedication to a long-term game:
If I lacked dedication I wouldn't be on the forums looking for a MP game.

- Certainty of ability to host game:
I think that I set up my ports at some point in the past, but I'd rather not have to doublecheck my work on that if I can weasel my way out of it.

And other aspects you find relevant to your game-finding experience.
one victory on diff. 7 against 2 ais using a method that no longer works. Expert at early/mid game, need work on endgame tactics (thus seeking others intending on them taking point at that time)

game options on difficulties I am pretty flexible (nothing below 7 though), I will play against any AI type including technologists

Again, I run the beta updated version of the game and shall continue to do so until 8.0 is live, so if it is not a beta patched game I will not seek involvement.
Aarki Jul 2 @ 8:24am 
- Country/timezone: GMT + 1-2

- Time availability: Every late afternoon - open end

- Expansions: All

- Dedication to a long-term game: Depends on the game and the people I play with. I wouldn't want to repeatedly, constantly save-scum out of a lost situation but otherwise it's fine to play on.

- Certainty of ability to host game: I have Tunngle and Hamachi, as well as open ports, yet I can't host properly because of my crappy bamboo connection.
