Immortal Fire tournament - recruitment CLOSED

Post by Jonathan4290 » Tue Jan 13, 2015 10:36 pm

I have decided to run an Immortal Fire-themed tournament restricted to the time period of Alexander the Great in the absence of Digital League for the time being. This tournament is similar to previous tournaments run by myself. I am aiming to get 24 players for this tournament but will run it with anywhere's between 20-32 players.

Players of ALL skill levels are welcome. In fact, one of the initial purposes of these tournaments is to get new players experience against the best players to help make them better.

If you would like to participate, please read the rules below and then post that you would like to participate.

Important dates:
- Jan 26: pool stage begins (arrange your own matches via thread and PM)
- Feb 6: players who have not completed at least 2/10 matches subject to review and possible replacement by player from reserve
- Mar 23: pool stage ends (you have 6 weeks to complete 4 mirror matches; if all are complete before this date, we will begin quarter-finals earlier)
- Mar 24: quarter-finals begin
- Apr 7: semi-finals begin
- Apr 21: finals begin

Structure of tournament:
- There are 4 pools of 6 players each
- Each player will be assigned a random army from a select list of Immortal Fire armies
- You will play each player in your pool once in a mirror match, one with your drawn army, one with your opponent's drawn army
- 3 pts awarded for win, 1 pt awarded for draw of any sort (e.g. if you win both games in your mirror match, you receive 6 pts)
- Top 2 players in each pool advance to quarter-finals
- Quarter-finals/semi-finals/finals all decided by mirror match where combined scores decide winner on percentage (e.g. if player A's combined BPs for both matches is 93/100 (93%) and player B's is 70/76 (92.1%), player B is victorious)
- Games not completed by deadlines are subject to adjudication

Arranging matches:
- Players are responsible for arranging matches
- Post challenge in this thread AND PM to ensure your opponent saw it
- It is advised to begin at least 2 mirror matches against 2 opponents immediately to ensure players have head start on pool stage deadline

Rules of games:
- Armies will consist of 500 pts
- You may customize your army before each match
- Fog of war and double moves will be used
- Digital League rules on army size/composition do not apply

Posting results:
- Winners of each individual match are responsible for posting result in this thread; I will periodically update the results table
- Please use this format:
Pool A result:
Alexander (Macedonians) 30/45 defeats Darius (Persians) 50/50

Ratings:
- This tournament will count towards ratings and rankings used by the Digital League
- This tournament is considered a B-level tournament.

Alexandrian Macedonian
Later Hoplite Greek
Later Spartan
Later Colonial Greek
Thessalian

Early Gatae
28th-30th Dynasty Egyptian

If it actually does come out (im a little doubtful until im actually playing it):
Before tournament begins: no worries
During tournament: extend deadlines a week or two to allow players to install new game and fix any issues that may arise
