Anyone own a copy of Artemis? Maybe we could get a game going between us, I've played before with friends at home, but never online. Could be interesting.

This game does not have a Linux version. This violates the prime directive.

There is something similar for Linux, Mac and even Windows called Quintet. I might be up for a game of that.

Mmm I dunno, it's not designed to be played online. I imagine it would be rubbish. Not that I actually have enough nerdy friends to have played it in person.

Easily fixed with teamspeak.

Run it in Wine, not whine Linus.

Every time I've tried to run any online game in wine, it's unplayable. Ridiculous lag, silly bugs...you need every microsecond of twitch for online gaming. Wine just doesn't cut it. Wine is OK for single player/offline stuff, but anything competitive and you might as well not bother.

I don't think it would be too bad online, both have voice chat, which is all you need really. I'm going to try out Quintet that was mentioned above, seems you can join servers for matchmaking.

Hopefully we can get a game running between us.

Do we exchange steam details?

This is largely untrue. In certain games and once you reach a certain skill level it's true. Otherwise not. I seriously doubt Civilization players are necessarily performing poorly because of suboptimal FPS and ping.

No, it is not. Well done on finding the edge case (turn based games) where it doesn't matter. Any type of game where you don't wait your turn though (such as this), it will matter.

You're shifting the goal posts, inadvertently I'm sure. Of course it will matter to some extent or other. The question is how much it matters. What you professed before and what I was contesting - and I tried to communicate this by quoting nine of your words - is the idea that you need every microsecond of performance. I can perform better than most at Counter-Strike with a 135ms ping; I cut my teeth on transatlantic servers. In days gone by I could perform in the 98th percentile at StarCraft II with a 250 ping. One ought to persistently focus on the self long before blaming suboptimal tools.
