As the title asks, when are you free to play AoD? Bear in mind an AoD session can last 3-4 hours, if not longer. I'll make a Doodle timetable once everyone has posted when they are generally free, to see what time everyone can do.

Until beginning of Oct, most likely local weekdays preferably during the day, although evenings may be possible (UTC & 1000 hours). Weekends will be considered at the time.
Then in Oct, back to local Fri, Sat, Sun (UTC & 1200 hrs) evenings although some day sessions may be possible

I'm potentially interested in this one too, but since the Europe game is starting soon, I'm going to give that priority - but otherwise can join up as long as this isn't during my working hours (Mon/Wed/Fri 9-5) and I've got class Tue/Thu afternoons for the next few weeks, but otherwise could probably swing it.

I'll keep an eye on this, but let me know if it develops further :)

I've made a Doodle here according to the times MagooNZ, princedetenebres and grungluck can do. If I've missed out (or added too many) potential days/times please say.

Magoo, there is a chance that I could play in this game dependent on start times. Please let me know what time Utc that your sessions might start.

Another interested player, based in eastern Australia, can usually do any Friday, Saturday or Sunday night from 9:30pm and some other nights from 10 to middnight (his time).

This is +11 hours UTC so 9:30pm his time is 10.30am UTC. 10pm his time is 11am UTC.

That would be 11:30pm, or during summer, 12:30 pm if that player is in Queensland. Will have to give this some thought.

17th Feb edit: Start time is too late for me. A 9:30pm start time in eastern Oz is better suited to other players that are west of eastern Oz, not east (ie Perth, Philipines, Singapore etc)

I am in China, i.e. utc +8 and am with rare exceptions free friday 7 pm through sunday 9pm local time. From the list above I'd be most interested in SOV, but if there's an opening for nationalist china that'd be great too!

Thankyou for signing up Insomnipresence! :D

Another player is also interested in playing AoD, they are happy to be any nation. He is based on the east coast of the USA, and can do 1500 EST to 0100 most days. That is 2000 UTC to 0600 UTC.

We have four possible interested players: MagooNZ, Insomnipresence, Reap & Cera.Bee. Just need 2 more players and we can move onto the next hurdle which is session day(s) and start time. Then we have game rules & game version to consider, and country selection.

Now that we have 5 players, we are well on the way to getting a game up & running. Does anyone else have two PCs? I'm suggesting that one player can play two countries; & that would have to be a combined GER/ITA. Or ITA could be left to the AI (not so good).
I'll keep trying to find a 6th player.

Obviously a human Italy is best, but if one cannot be found - Jarski's improved AI for it is great. It reaches around 100 base IC by late 39/40, builds infra in good places and spams inf-art and inf-eng for a German player to use as they wish. It should also be noted, his AI Italy attempts to ally with Germany after defeating Ethiopia as a human would do the same (the Germany player can refuse this of course, but it asks to join every month or so - game balance wise it makes little difference when Italy joins the Axis).
