In fact, the sheer nausea of having to deal with 12 players is the main reason I keep putting off my microspace battle.


If you stick to a short limit (Brikspace's limit was 48 hours) and show that you ARE going to enforce it, then you won't have many problems. Since your battle will probably have multiple players cooperating, it's easy to find seconds -- if one squadron commander doesn't give orders, someone else on his team will be able to do it for him.


Even with 13 players besides myself, it's still not that bad to take their orders in ToOC, due to the above mentioned strict timing and a healthy supply of back-ups. Just make sure that you get back-ups. Even 16 could be doable, but I'm not even sure we have enough regular Forum Battlers for that.

With all the discussion of the best way to run a forum battle, I thought it'd be nice if it could all be collected in one place. So I started a page on the wiki for everyone to add to.

Good job on that.

Altho, I've been trying to update this, but I've lost the count to the battles. The awards are over. I just need a list of finished battles since last update and ongoing ones.

I could do awards, if you can't. It might be helpful to have a separate sub-forum for them, though, because this one's getting crowded.

The Battle for Rainbowville? That one's already cancelled, according to the first post.

Might be easier to keep track of this stuff on a wiki page, instead of having to search back through the long thread.

Hmmm how exactly you want this to be on the Wiki?
