Decline and Fall tournament - recruitment - 1 player needed

Post by Jonathan4290 » Wed Jun 10, 2015 3:56 am

I have decided to run an Decline and Fall-themed tournament 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.

The pool stage will be divided into two in case the new FOG(U) comes out during the tournament.

Structure of tournament:
- There are 4 pools of 6 players each, or 8 sub-pools of 3 players each (or in some cases sub-pools of 2 players awaiting 1 player to join)
- Each pool is divided in half for the purpose of scheduling matches
- Each player will be assigned a random army from a select list of Eternal Empire armies but are allowed to veto one army
- 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
- Arab Conquest armies may not choose the troop type “Warriors” at all, units with bows and marked “M” in the DAG
- Dailaimi may not choose the troop type “Warriors” at all, units with bows and marked “M” in the DAG


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:
Khalid (Arabs) 30/45 defeats Vahan (Byzantines) 50/50

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

Please count me in and veto Pecheneg
Might be worth reverting to some of digi league's restrictions
That is Daialami and Arab Conquest can not have lf supported battle groups

Mikemarchant: yes "hard work" . . .

Eric: agreed, no LF-supported battlegroups. Itd still be even matches being paired and all but its not overly fun for either side. Ill look through armies for this tournament and see which ones are affected.

I am in as well and thank you very much.
I'll veto Avars and Pechenegs as well, just not a finessey guy.

Two quick thoughts - 1) I didnt get an email note on this one - I'm sure a lot of people aren't checking in here often any more.
and 2) In the unlikely event we get 24 there are only 18 armies - should we consider more? -Tom

1) Just sent out a reminder to some regulars to make sure they're aware of it.
2) We should be able to double up on a few armies. I try to get one of each major nation. Any others you'd want to bring in that are distinct enough to play? Don't say Moors.
