New Game?

Since no one has responded to my request for a ladder game, is anyone interested in a non-ladder game? 

If so, what kind of setup would you like?

Just came back from real life to enjoy some PBEM. I'm therefore interested in a game ladder or non-ladder.

I enjoy blind research and random events to spice things up. But I'm not adamant about these. Feel free to adjust to your needs and wants.

My ideal kind of game I described in my previous topic, asking for a ladder game.  The basics are 2 or 3 factions for each of two players, balanced start on a balanced map.

For a non-ladder game, I am open to a lot of things like random events that I would not like in a ladder game.

There are a couple of things that I would not consider for any kind of game:

1. Random faction assignment.  I want to select the faction I will be playing.

2. Blind research.  I can't stand blind research.  Research is too important to leave to chance.  To me, it would like having all of my units move randomly, and to randomly establish cities.

Anyway, if you want to try a game, let's talk about how we would like to set up the game.  Thanks!


no one else seems to be interested in a new PBEM so, why don't you play a 1v1 game for the ladder?

That is actually what I am asking for.  A 1vs1 game either ranked (for ladder) or unranked, whichever my opponent wants.  My preferred 1vs1 game has each of us playing 2 factions (I think it is more interesting that way), but I would consider any setup with a balanced start for a ladder game.
