So this season it's singles but given the feedback we are looking at allowing multimaster play next season, if we did do Iron scorpius for multi master any master used would be ruled out for future rounds, but we would never enforce multimaster play. 

Cheers :)

Historically I have been a bit against double masters, but I realised I don't have any tournament data to back that up (and it hasn't been a problem locally).

Would be nice to see a high-calibre tournament put the idea to the test.

So multiple masters are inherently imbalanced, all it takes is looking at how much value certain masters bring as additional hire as opposed to others, kirai, zoraida, ophelia  would all make solid additional masters that don't need any keyword support whereas ulix, Leveticus, mei feng don't really bring anything to a crew without their support pieces. 

 

But this isn't the place for this conversation, so we will leave it at that.

Hi there,

I am interested in joining in as I have built and painted a lot this year but been unable to play. Would not knowing Vassal particularly well put me at a huge disadvantage? And are there other things I have to do first, or can I just jump in?

I am relatively experienced in the game itself though, just not on computer top gaming 😂

Thanks, Higgy.

So the best thing you could do is join the discordant ask someone to run you through how to use vassal, knowing how to play will mean you just have to learn the controls, and as you have just over a week and a half that should be plenty for you to get the hang off things. https://discord.gg/QSApfr3ZMY

To add to this, make sure to watch a video of someone playing or get a tutor. You need to know what vassal can do to fully use it. I watched battle reports and was like "oh, what's the hotkey for that function" a lot.

I found a series of very old videos that seem to tutorial it quite well, and I've taken notes so I have a cheat sheet of functions 😛

But it may have a bug where that only works if the arrow is pointing north. At least, I had the same problem last time.

I think the latest update to either vassal or the module fixed it. I think vassal changed it for a few versions and then either changed it back or the module makers found way to over ride it

Playing you will be a double challenge. Both strategic and logistic for us europeans :D
