    New PvP-teambased Forum Game: Steel Waters

    Ahoy!

    Want to try out a forum game of a different kind?
    One, where your very own tactics are challenged and cooperation with others is recommended, if not necessary?

    Then try out the new forum game...
    Steel Waters!

    In this narrative-driven competitive teamgame intended for 8 players you embarge on large battleships in a Schizo-Tech-scenario to battle each other on the high seas - at night.
    What do you say? Simply shooting broadsides at the enemy is enough to win?
    I don't think so! :D

    Your ships might be equipped with state-of-the-art-technology and their armament may bear enough firepower to burn entire coastal cities - but dozens of years of lacking maintenance due to insufficent resources have taken their toll on the vessels, so that you will have to handle the systems manually, even suffering technical failures in the worst cases which your enemy can abuse to either score cheap shots at you or improve their own defenses. Will you try to turn your mighty battleship into a fortress first? Or will you just fire everything you've got? And then: Maybe you try to take out their radar first so they can't lock on you anymore? Or even the engines first to improve your hit chances?

    But to destroy your enemy, you'll need to see him of course. Due to the otherworldly darkness inhabiting this world after sunset, lamps have a reduced range so you have to rely on sonar to locate your opponent. Otherwise prepare to miss a lot like you would after drinking one bottle of rum.

    Join one of two factions with their own goals, hopes, dreams and fears and send your enemy to Davy Jones' locker!


    Hint: This sounds incredibly complicated at first reading, but it's actually quite simple.

    @GAZ Vodnik, you mean this as a written forum game, right?

    Interesting.

    You may have to do something to draw attention to your request.
    This forum is the correct one, but it is half invisible.
    Even I only noticed your message mostly by accident...

    If you want, I can temporarily move your thread to the News section of the forum.

    Many thanks! :D

    If you know ways on how to make this game more appealing instead of people just thinking "Wha...I don't even" and quitting without leaving a reply, I would be really grateful. :)

    But I'd like to wait another week until I accept your offer for posting to the news section, as I don't want to waste space her for a game which might not even work out^^

    People need to see your message, which probably doesn't happen right now.
    Try tagging currently active forum members who may be interested like this: @GAZ Vodnik.

    You could also write a promotional PM and send it to a bunch of people.
    But make sure to only do this once to avoid spamming!

    Could we at least count on you as a possible player? :)

    Sorry, but no. I have no time to spare for that at all. :(

    I respond here because it is my job and because I myself hate being ignored.
    So I'm willing to do some small things to have your request be more visible.
    But that is the limit of what I can do....

    Thanks again!

    Okay, after two weeks of no response, I think I would like to accept your offer for more visibility. :unsure

    Like a small news-post.
