Longturn Learning game test started! Two-minute turns, do NOT destroy opponents you find.

The purpose of test games is checking if everything is working with server settings and the ruleset before the real thing. Also, if someone needs some warming up.

Host: Longturn.net
Port: 5065

After a delay caused by technical difficulties (updating site to a new version, debugging, stuff and stuff) the Learning LT game is finally starting tomorrow.

House rules:

This is a tutorial game aimed at beginners who have never played (Free)Civ or have played it very little and/or would like to get better acquainted with the interface, mechanics and House Rules. The main feature of the game (unless there is a consensus for otherwise) is low-aggression environment.

Features are:
* do not conquer more than 2 cities per week
* do not attack a player who has 5 or less cities
* no early aggression: do not attack anyone before Turn 20
Two or more players may agree to disregard these rules when dealing with each other if they want to practice greater hostility. It would be reasonable to notify the admin of this, but it is not a requirement.

The admin will use delegation system to prevent or reverse violations. Again, this is a learning game, not a competition.

If someone is breaking these rules and/or harassing others, it is up to the player to report this. There is noway for the admin to discover rule breaks. You have to report it.

It is likely that there will be more experienced players in the game. Their role will be "advisory supervision". If they overstep this, it should be reported and admin will act.
