Hiya Mumble! After speaking with the AI, load and reload and voila, you can speak to them again....IIRC.
I droped a game in the other day...just a normal game....was fun tho!
Well yeah except the slot 1 AI of course.
But I'm more interested in the first date you can talk to the AI and I'm sure it is the 1st of something. I thought is was March 1st if you're Super Diplomat (which I'm not) and April 1st if not (which I am) but then I've heard some conflicting information that said March 1st even if not Super Diplomat and now of course Motti mentions March 8.
I can find out quick enough but my choice of opponents is sort of dependent on the date I can 1st talk to them so it might help to know so that I avoid having to go back and try again. Not that I haven't had my share of going back and starting over.
I really haven't even tried to play in over a year but at the moment I've at least made some time available and have the inclination to give it another try.
In my case it's either going to be to go big or go home. I'm not looking for just another game I'm looking for the epic game of all time without of course using Dreadlords opponents (which I view as cheating) and even without going into a major early game bankrupt phase (which I view as a legitimate strategy, just not a necessary one).
My minimum acceptable target is 2M but 3M or perhaps even a bit more is the true goal. I have reasonable reasons to believe it's possible and at least the glimmer of a path that *may* have a chance of getting there.
But no guarantees. I'm practical enough to realize that just because something is theoretically possible doesn't mean it's realistically achievable but I'm willing to at least give it the old college try.
