Hi All,

I'm hosting a new Team Wolf game (5 teams of two) that will be special in the sense that there will be no ship trading within teams added to the fact that teams will not communications between opposing teams (no diplomacy and no ship trading).

Here is a link to the game if you'd like to mark interest:

I am hosting another team wolf with the same format which has been very interesting so far. I feel like it challenges teammates to have good communications and planning. It adds a new dimension to the game when instead of trading ships you have to coordinate moves, etc.

You may also choose your race/team when marking interest :)

One of the main factors generating the hype around the game is the method of choosing races. I strongly encourage to do that too in here. The format of no ship trading even between teams is definitely worth trying.

I agree that fixed races is tempting but requires a lot of thought to make sure no weak teams are created. I am currently hosting a 3V3 with the same format and fixed races and it is very interesting. I plan to repost that same game when it finishes and play one of the other teams. (Feds, Colonies, Rebels.) There was a lot of thought behind choosing the teams in that one.
I like this format so much that I think I will only play this format for some time to come. I want to learn from what people choose as their teams in this game for the future games. Thanks so much for the suggestion.

FYI, here's a link to the selection/setup of Lone Wolf Team 2 (http://play.planets.nu/#/sector/270180):

@Whisperer, thanks for the example. It looks like a pretty well thought out combination of races for 5x2.
I'd be open to consider doing fixed races if people want to chime in here with interest for such a combo or some other fixed combo.

The attractive thing to me about no ship trading is to have all players engaged in late game rather than the map being filled with Lizard Gorbies and Fed Virgos etc, while the non-combat-bonus races sit by and watch. (admitted that statement might have a bit of hyperbole but there's gotta be a point in there somewhere I think :D )
