So I see interest has picked up for a return of the Fantasy Series!
There are a few pressing issues at the moment that I would like to address
##Authority and Killerman
@killerman3333 has started an application thread. A few months ago, he had asked me for my “blessing” in continuing the Fantasy Series himself. It was “dead” at the time and I don’t own any rights to the game, so I told him to “do what you want”, expecting nothing would transpire, which nothing ever did.
If this is to continue to the point where we hold another round of the Fantasy Series, I will run it. There is a lot of details behind the scenes and even my long-term assistant had major issues running a round.
@killerman3333 Because of your dedication and the work you put in, I want to invite you on as my assistant. We will work together on the Guidelines for a future Round and you will help me manage the Draft and enforce the Guidelines we set, same job as @Shiratori had.
@Sirrian One step to continuing the Fantasy Series was to check if Development would support it still. Am I safe to assume that you do?
The offer of streaming AI vs. AI matchups is exciting. We would have to do a match with each team going first and I will have to decide if the battles are weighted, how much, or if at all.
Community voting is important, I believe the Fantasy Series helps increase Forum membership, increases morale and sparks important discussions about Troops, strategy and game mechanics.
I realize the Draft took a lot of time, time that not everyone has.
A potential future Round will feature a streamlined way to select Teams that will significantly reduce the time of the Series overall as well as the time a Participant will need to dedicate.
Hopefully this increases the availability of prospective Participants.
At this time, nothing is organized to the point of taking official applications. Anyone expressing interest will be contacted first when we do start taking applications
