    A week is fine with me, I'm still behind anyway. If I can't catch smurfy on tomorrow, I'll just forfeit that match so I can get to playing the next one.

    Be excellent to each other you stupid cunts.

    If we can't find Smurfy, maybe Pollo and I should run a match instead.

    Guysguysguys.


    Vassal is now at 5.4


    EDIT: You will have to download the expansion for 5.4 and then add them all manually before models can be accessed. Spess Wolves and Blood Angles have also been added.

    Extream,

    If you download the entire program rather than just the extensions and make sure the files are in the correct directory, you don't have to install them one at a time.

    What do you mean the entire program, and which is the correct directory? Clease my HD of vassal and start again from scratch? After all this time, I've got vassal files scattered all over the place.

    There are two files you can download. One is the extensions file, the other is the full program. What you want to happen is you'll have a "Vassal40k" file. You want all of the other files to be in a sub directory of whatever directory has the "Vassal40k" file, with the sub directory named "Vassal40k_ext"

    Yeeeah. I'm with Gabriel on this one, my stuff is so scattered around that I couldn't figure out how to do it otherwise. Oh well, got it up and running, ready for my next game since I couldn't seem to catch Smurfy at all this week.

    So, Atrius has missed two apointments to play with me, and hasn't responded to my posting in this thread or PMs this week. According to his profile, he hasn't logged onto PA since August 27th. I hope nothing has happened to him, and I don't know how to get my game in.

    Dang I can't believe I ever missed this thread! Someone PM me when Season 3 starts (if you could play as the Tau)

    Also, good luck

    I figure most of us who were at PAX are back now so we are ready whenever for the new schedule.

    Heff, Atrius was at a wedding with me this weekend and his internet has died at home. I'll see if there's another way of getting a hold of him, but for now, I'll pass the message along.

    Extream,

    Thank you for the update. I'm very happy to know nothing serious has happened.

    I haven't seen Smurfy on for a while, and I don't know when Atrius will be getting his internet back and be able to play (Extream, can you find out?). Do we want to consider them dropped and reshuffle the remaining players so we can get back on track?

    I need to do something, because this is falling apart. I will think about it tomorrow. I am DEFINITELY doing a challenge league as the next season, so people can jump in and out as wanted/needed.

    Heff, I'll ask him. If it doesn't look like it'll be fixed soon, I'll just have him come over to my place and do it. Also, looks like I'll be out of town again this weekend so if whoever wants to get a game in, I'm free almost all day tomorrow.

    Perhaps this could morph into a challenge league. I'm going to have to drop out as the way this is shaping up I won't be able to play the final two weeks due to vacations and business travel. I had a lot of fun in the games I did play though!

    There are some acts so ruthless, some deeds so unpalatable, that only the Vlka Fenryka are capable of undertaking them. It's what we were bred for. It's the way we were designed. Without qualm or sentiment, without hesitation or whimsy. We take pride in being the only Astartes who will never, under any circumstances, refuse to strike on the Allfather's behalf, no matter what the target, no matter what the cause.

    I think I'm going to have to bow out of the league.
    The next few weeks will be hit and miss with regards to being able to get a game in, and if I'm reading dates correctly i'll be away for a couple of weeks when this ends. Sorry everyone!
    Challenge sounds good though, less commitment.

    All right guys. Lets just change this to a challenge league using the weeks results to set up the board.
    Red players have a challenge token, and may challenge anyone in the tier above them.

    Tier 1: Mazzyx
    Tier 2: PolloDiablo--Slapnuts
    Tier 3: Sharp101--Thelawinator--Huntzy
    Tier 4: Extreaminatus--Smurfy--Eldercat--Dayspring
    Tier 5: AtriusNight--Heffling--Gabriel_Pitt--Susan--RenegadeAce

    1. Challenge Board

    Each participant can be moved up and down the list to show each player's present standing.

    2. Challenging

    In general, players on each tier may challenge any player on the next higher tier to a match by contacting that person and arranging a time to play. If you are on the bottom tier, you may challenge anyone on the next higher tier. However, if you are on a higher tier, then you may only challenge if you have successfully defended your present position.

    3. Bottom Tier

    The bottom tier is the lowest tier that is more than half full. If the lowest tier is half full or less than half full, it is counted as part of the tier above, and the second lowest and the lowest tier both are considered the bottom tier. Players who do not have a spot on the board are considered on the bottom tier and must try to fight their way on.

    4. Challenge Tokens

    When you successfully defend your spot, you get a challenge token, and you may then spend your challenge token to challenge a player on the next higher tier. If you win, your name is switched on the Challenge Board with the name of the person you defeated (but you no longer have a challenge token, and must earn another by defending your new position). If you lose, your opponent gets your challenge token, and you must earn another). Challenge tokens will be denoted by red names.

    5. Champion

    The player on the top position is the current champion of the Challenge Board. Each time the champion successfully defends his position, he gets a challenge token, and if he wins four tokens he shall retire as Grand Champion (with his name commended through the ages) and may reenter the Challenge Board with a new army. However, if the champion is defeated, he falls to the bottom tier, and the resulting openings on the Challenge Board are filled randomly by players with challenge tokens.

    6. Frequency of Play

    You should play at least one game every other week. Unless you are in the top position of the Challenge Board, if two weeks pass without you playing a game, then I will swap your tag with that of a randomly selected player who has a challenge token from the next lower tier (if you have a challenge token, you would not lose it as the result of this swap, but the randomly selected player would). Thus, if you fail to play games, you will keep moving lower until you get to the bottom tier.

    7. If Nobody Will Challenge You

    If two weeks pass without you receiving a challenge, then I will issue you a free challenge token. If three weeks pass and no challenges have been issued to the top player, they shall retire as Grand Champion, and the two players in the second tier shall be moved to the bottom tier, with the resulting openings filled randomly by players with challenge tokens.

    Wow I was the top. So confused. So very confused. How are we doing our points since I am guessing I still gotta play Chaos(which I am fine with). Are we just going to max at a straight 1k or be like 1.5k now. I am really curious.

    Ok I'll do this too, I rarely play 40k and it would be fun to do more than put models together and paint.

    I'm around weekends, I seem to be working nights every weekday though.
