Question: Have there been any significant changes to the tournament rules since last year? I've been away for a while.

Yes, there have been a few, the main one being the marginal win rule where you only get 3pts for a win if your opponent scores 50% or more. And check out the later rules concerning drawn matches and the 25% threshold to get 2 points.

Current rules are here . . . viewtopic.php?f=501&t=80755

You last entered in Season 3 and the rules at that time were as follows . . .

The FOG2 Digital League: rules of competition

1. The League

The league will eventually consist of 5 core sections:

Biblical Age 3200BC - 800BC
Classical Antiquity 800BC – 100BC
Later Antiquity 100BC - 600AD
Early Middle Ages 600AD - 1000AD
High Middle Ages 1000AD – 1500 AD

In addition, a 6th section, historically themed, will be available each season.

Each core section will be divided into divisions of 10 players. If any division has less than 10 players at the start of competition then recruitment to it will remain open until all vacancies are filled.

Each player will play one match against all the other players in the division. There will be no paired games in the core sections.

Promotion and relegation will occur between all divisions. Players winning a division will always be promoted and players coming bottom of a division will always be relegated. Other promotions and relegations will be at the discretion of the organisers.

Players who have completed 9 tournament matches will be given a FOG2 Digital rating.

Any eventuality not covered by these rules will be subject to adjudication by the organisers. The adjudication committee currently consists of ianiow (Ian), hidde (Anders) and stockwellpete (Pete).

2. Joining the league and selecting your armies

Players are usually required to select four different armies for each of the core sections that they wish to enter and to post them in the relevant “recruitment” threads. Players will then usually be allocated one army for each section they have entered and they will use this army for all 9 matches. The FOG2DL ratings will be used in the process of allocating armies.

3. Participation in the league

Players will be able to enter a maximum of four section of the league. It is expected that players will complete all their fixtures. Players who do not may be excluded from subsequent seasons.

Players must register one result in each section they have entered within three weeks and three results within each section they have entered within five weeks (i.e. the halfway stage) of the opening of the tournament or they may be replaced by a player from the reserve list.

4. Matches

Either player may initiate a match by posting a challenge in the appropriate thread in the competition forum. For matches in each of the core sections players will select "Open Battle" and will field a "Medium" army and choose a "Medium" battlefield unless otherwise directed. Players are free to customise their army before each battle so "Default" is the correct Force Selection option. Terrain will always be "Pot Luck" unless otherwise specified.

If a match is set-up incorrectly for any reason then it must be re-started as soon as possible.

Players may agree to re-start a match within the first two turns if they believe the terrain is likely to produce a sterile match or a draw. The maximum number of re-starts permitted for a single match is two.


Reporting the result of a match is the responsibility of the winning player.

5. Winning league points

Points will be awarded for wins, ties and draws as follows . . .

4 points – for a win
2 points – for a tie where both armies break on the same turn (i.e. both reach 60% losses)
1 point – for a draw where a player has inflicted at least 20% losses on his opponent
0 points – for a loss, or for a draw where a player has not inflicted 20% losses on his opponent

To win a game a player must “rout” the opponent’s army. The “marginal victory” rule will not apply in any circumstances.
A draw will occur where neither army has broken by the match turn limit (24 turns), or at any point in the match by agreement between the two players.

If two or more players finish on the same number of points at the end of the season, the player with the most wins will be placed higher in the table. If two or more players have the same number of wins then the results of the matches between those two or more players will determine the final positions in the league table. Where these results still do not separate the players the players will be considered to have "tied" and will be given equal standings in the final league tables.

In the Themed Event, however, where it is necessary to separate players in the final tables at the group stage to decide who progresses to the knock-out phase, the points aggregate from the matches between the players with the same number of wins will be used to decide the final places in the group table. If this still does not separate the players then lots will be drawn to determine which player(s) proceed to the next stage of the competition.

In the knock-out rounds of the Themed Event where players win one game each, aggregate scoring will be used to decide which player progresses to the next round. Players resigning a match in the knock-out stages will automatically be knocked-out of the competition.

6. Player etiquette and withdrawal from the league

Please treat organisers and other players in the way that you would wish to be treated yourself. Please visit the Field of Glory 2 forum regularly. Try to respond to communications as quickly as you can and once you have started a match play at a regular pace so it can be completed within a reasonable timespan. It is expected that all matches will be completed within one month of their starting date. Matches that continue for longer than one month may be adjudicated. If you are unable to play for a short period of time then please let your opponents know in advance, whenever possible.

Please notify the tournament organisers if you are unable to contact an opponent to start a match after 7 days have elapsed.

If your opponent has not moved at all for 7 days without explanation then you are entitled to claim the match automatically by using the in-game facility to do this on the multiplayer system.

If you wish to resign from the league, or if you will not have time to finish all of your matches, please notify the tournament organisers as soon as possible. If you have not completed three matches in a division in a core section your record will be expunged completely. If you have completed three or more matches then the points available from any un-played matches will be awarded to your opponents.

In the Themed Event, If you have not completed one match in a qualifying group you will be replaced by a reserve if it is possible. If you have completed one or more matches then the points available from any un-played matches will be awarded to your opponents.
