In addition, can we submit our fleets before the deadline or do you want that to be a true Grand Reveal Day?


Any time you have your fleets ready, feel free to post! I'll be happy to start looking them over as time permits from now until then.

So my fleet is finalized, but it is not posting and I can't figure out what to do anymore. I've logged in and out, I've restarted the browser and computer and I'm running out of troubleshooting options, any others people can think of?

That is weird - usually when this happens I just have to restart browser. Have you tried a different browser?

Rep's and ben's have been posted, so I also just posted mine!

If the problem's continuing, would anyone mind if the fleet was posted in the forum for the time being (instead of in the Fleets section)?

So I'm testing getting my fleet challenge posted. It isn't the title, or the ship combination so it is something in the description that will post in the forums, but not in the armies section, so I'll be posting parts of the description until I get this fixed, then I'll remove my fleet from this thread and replace it with a link

Just figured I'd mention that I've been fiddling around with the test map for the challenge. I think I've got the land placement down, just a few final tweaks and it'll be set. As that is the case, I figure I should mention the reasons for the map:

- The map gives me a chance to see how fleets interact with the game itself, instead of just assuming that things will work as they look on paper.

- In the case where fleets are too close to call, performance in some test runs in this scenario would give me a 'tie-breaker' to fall back on.

- If people were interested, we could do vs scenarios, to see how competing fleets would take each other on in regards to finding (and retaining) any possible treasures from the site area

With all of that said, once it's finished (without treasures), would anyone be interested in seeing the map?

Yeah, I'd be interested in seeing the map. Am I to assume it is on VASSAL, and am I the only one who has not yet submitted their fleet?

Yep, the map's on VASSAL. As for the fleet challenge, there's always the chance of last-minute entrants... I mean, who can really resist a good treasure hunt? Very Happy

Found it!

*Ahem*

Firstly, I wish to personally thank you all for the submissions to this challenge. All of the fleets were effective, and provided some interesting moments throughout each phase of examination: be that reading over the fleet build, reading the narrative, drawing flavor points between the two, and testing the fleets both solo and head-to-head against other fleets. I can honestly say that there was no clear winner from among this group, but a few fleets stood out. There was a fleet that literally changed the appearance of the test map before I could start testing, a fleet in a nationality I'd have never expected to fit this challenge so well, and two fleets that brought strong competition from every angle, not just in their mechanics, but in their stories as well.

Still a winner must be named, and in the list of submitted fleets, one fleet had the combination of a solid build and good story, and managed to achieve victories against every other fleet submitted in testing, so without further ado, the winner of this Fleet Challenge is...

Volt - El Dorado - Family Reunion

Congratulations!
