   posted by Anonymous on 24-Nov-2003 8:24:13 (9421 reads)
To celebrate the launch of our FreeCiv tournament series the owners of the FreeCiv server are offering a unique chance to win a New AmigaONE XE motherboard with 512Mb RAM!


The prize will go to one lucky victor of the FreeCiv challenge league matches starting in January 2004 and concluding in March 2004! There are a limited number of places so register with your identity on the AW FreeCiv Support Site !

To help you prepare for victory, AW will be running a series of 12 training matches throughout December 2003 at the weekend for different timezones across the globe to participate and learn the game. More details can be found on the AW FreeCiv Support Site or join us on IRC on server channel #awfreeciv.

If you already have an A1XE and you don't need another, we offer an A1XE upgrades package to the same monetary value!

Full terms an conditions that apply to the game will be posted on December 31st on

Update Last night (25th) we successfully tried out a brand of the settings we call "speedciv" which takes about 2 hours to play and is far more frenetic than the standard freeciv We expect games to take 2-3 hours maximum now!

DaveP and IanS - AW FreeCiv Admins.

OK this does seem to be escalating a little, language problems both ways.

The statement I made right at the top was in answer to criticism
I had had here, in email and on Now I do not
think that its itself sanctioning this comments, far
from it. What I wanted to achieve was a general clearing up of
the complaints and comments people had in one fell swoop in
case the rumour mill started and through chinese whispers
people got the wrong idea and decided not to sign to the competition
through taking some of these political comments seriously.

I'm going to play, but if I win, I will take the Amiga mobo and destroy it, and post the pics to the internet.

<--of course not.

As insane as that remark was, I don't think it came off as being ludicrous...not in this community....sigh, and I like being ludicrous, I miss it.

Anyway, I am thinking about playing...but I don't know if I have the time to commit. I will say this, I looked at and it looks like a game I would definately enjoy playing....if only I could!

Great community spirit...hope its a success.

Thanks Robert, you will be more than welcome, its 2.5 hours to 3 hours every sunday with three different starting times.

We offer training on a sunday ( although I wont be able to run this as I will be travelling this weekend ) to help get you up to speed.

I will be using the 6.30 AM game to play. Right - a month to try out my quick start moves. How long will each game be played for and will there be a time limit on turn length ?

Doug, by Saturday me and Dave hope to have game details up on the site, we're just very busy with other things right now!

Hope to see you there soon (or maybe not if you're playing the 6.30AM match)

Cheers, Ian
