Beyond the Fringe Tournament - ISSUE FIXED

Post by Daniele » Thu Oct 26, 2017 3:09 pm

IMPORTANT NOTE!
EDIT - The Tecnincal Issue has been fixed. The tournament page and the login system work properly now



We are pleased to announce the third Field of Glory 2 public tournament. This will be played using the normal Field of Glory 2 Multiplayer system and our automated tournament system.

A special request goes to the players who are currently playing in other FOG2 tournaments: if you are already playing one or two tournaments please consider leaving space to new players initially, and join at a later stage. There will be other tournaments in the future and we assure you no one will be left out.

To enter, go to the tournament page here:
http://www.slitherine.com/tournaments/tournaments.asp

The general tournament rules can be found here:
http://www.slitherine.com/tournaments/r ... terStatus=

The first round will commence on Tuesday 31st October 2017. No further entries can be accepted after the tournament has begun.

Specific tournament rules:
This tournament will involve three rounds. The battles will be medium-sized custom battles.
Round 1: Bosporan (84-11 BC) vs Sarmatian (North European Agricultural – Siracae/Iazygian invasion of Bosporus)
Round 2: Indian vs Indo-Greek (Tropical)
Round 3: Pontic (110-85 BC) vs Rhoxolani (North European Agricultural – Rhoxolani invasion of Bosporus)

Games are paired, so each matchup will be played both ways. Each player will be able to choose his forces using the normal force selection system. Random maps are in use, so the two battles in each pair will be on different maps.
First round pairings will be selected randomly, subsequent rounds using the Swiss Chess system. Nobody will play the same opponent in more than one round.

The scoring system is as follows:
• If a game runs to the turn limit, each side scores points equal to the enemy % routed at the turn limit. If the game times out, adjustments may be made, depending on how far the game has progressed and who took longer over their turns – see below.
• If one army breaks, the victorious player scores 60 points plus the difference between the enemy % routed and his own % routed. The loser scores points equal to the winner's % routed.
Examples:
1) If Ben defeats Tamas's army, and has inflicted 45% routed on Tamas, and Tamas has inflicted 15% on Ben, Ben will score 60 + (45 – 15) = 90, Tamas will score 15.
2) However, if Ben defeated Tamas’s army by inflicting 62% routed on Tamas, and Tamas had inflicted 56% routed on Ben, Ben would get 60 + (62 – 56) = 66 points, and Tamas would get 56.
3) If the game is unfinished (or it reached the turn limit) with Ben inflicting 20% routed on Tamas, and Tamas inflicting 10% routed on Ben, Ben would score 20, and Tamas would score 10. (Provided that between them they have played at least 24 turns in all – see below).

Note that this system rewards aggressive play over desultory skirmishing. If you rout an enemy unit then hide for the rest of the game, both players will get extremely low scores - lower than if they played hard and lost.

Byes:
If an odd number of players sign up for the tournament, one player will get a bye in each round. In the first round this is random. In subsequent rounds it will be the player with the lowest score. The score for a BYE is 75 points for each game.
Round times and timing out:
Each round will last 10 days.
Any battles that are not completed by the end of the round will be timed out. The player who has had the game in his “My Turns” box the longest overall will be the one who is deemed to be timed out. This will not normally incur any penalties, unless insufficient turns have been played: If the timed-out player has played less than 12 turns, his score will be reduced proportionately, and his opponent will be granted the BYE score if it exceeds his current score. If the timed-out player has played less than 6 turns, he will not be included in the draw for the next round. This is to prevent someone else’s enjoyment being spoiled by being drawn against someone who has apparently dropped out of the tournament.

Also interested in joining once the tournament page is fixed. Note that the tournaments page appears to be broken in general, not just for this tournament.

Aye, it happened just after the people who would mend it (in Milan) packed up work for the day.

It seems to depend on whether you are logged in or not. The error seems to only occur if you are logged in.

Is it ok to join the third tournament now, if we are already in the first tournament? I know you wanted to give new folks a chance to join up, but it is only half full as of Saturday at 10am PDT.

Just curious. Thanks!
