Legions Triumphant Triple Life Tournament

Post by Jonathan4290 » Fri Nov 20, 2015 6:02 pm

This is a Legions Triumphant-themed triple life tournament. Follow the bracket structure strictly and please ask questions if you have them. All arranging matches and results will be posted in this thread.

Important dates:
- Dec 1: Round 1 begins
- Dec 16: Round 2 begins
- Jan 1: Round 3 begins
- Jan 16: Round 4 begins
- Feb 1: Round 5 begins
- Feb 16: Round 6 begins
- Mar 1: Round 7 begins
- Players have roughly 2 weeks to complete each round which will consist of one match for each player.

Joining the tournament:
- Each player selects 3 armies from the Legions Triumphant book each representing a “life”.
- Based on Ianiow’s classification of armies with exceptional being worth 4, good 3, average 2, and poor 1, the total points value of the selected armies must be 7 or less.

Structure of tournament:
- Each player has 3 lives and is eliminated after total 3 losses.
- The structure strictly follows the format as provided by the spreadsheet so just follow the path. If you win, you stay near the top and if you lose you begin moving down into the second life bracket, then the third life bracket, and then finally elimination. Generally speaking, you will typically play against players with similar amounts of lives.
- A player cannot reuse an army that has been defeated in battle (another way to think of this is each army equals a life).
- Ties will be counted as losses for both players. This will be applied by having the player that is higher in the bracket lose the match, and the player that is lower in the bracket immediately forfeit the next match. This way both players lose a life.

Arranging matches
- As convenor, I will post clear instructions regarding each player’s next match to ensure there is no confusion.
- Players can choose to play as any of the armies that have not been eliminated by being defeated.
- Players’ army choices for each match remain secret (so ensure you unclick “show army name.”). Your opponent will only know which armies you have left to choose from.
- Players are responsible for arranging matches.
- Post challenge in this thread and PM to ensure your opponent saw it.

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 update the table and remaining army lists for each player.
- Please use this format:
Attila (Huns) 30/45 defeats Aetilus (Romans) 50/50

Army selections are below and tournament bracket is here: https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=D ... file%2cxls. Armies in bold below are players' remaining armies, unbolded armies are eliminated.

Very happy to join in Jonathan. Not entirely sure I understand the format at this stage, but that needn't be a problem.


Best Wishes

I'd like to join for a change of scenery and support but,
the major issue is time.
there are up to 10 rounds to get to the finals, each round has to end before the next group of games can start (not always true here but there will be delays for some players).
I can pretty much only play on weekend, averaging 2 turns. if the game goes 16 turns, and DAG games can be lengthy, just because of the initial approach and the shooting if large amount of lights are involved, that's 8 weeks for just one round. the map also can dictate very long games if one side decides to cling to a corner and defend.

the only way to deal with it is to restrict the number of turns and declare a winner with respect to losses. but that's also problematic if armies are not similar (some armies rely on taking a lot of losses early on and overwhelm the enemy at the end). this would work best with purposely designed scenarios that can take into account all those factors but not doable here because of the 'choose your army' principle.

I've edited my initial post to clarify the format. I would strongly advise checking out http://tournamentdesign.org/ to visualize it. Hope it helps. And please send me your army choices via PM.

Fogman: we are going to aim for 2 weeks per round so maybe this tournament won't be suitable for you. We may come across some of the issues you've described but this is just an experimential tournament so we'll see how it goes. The format is somewhat flexible in that as long as you and your opponent are finished their previous games, you can play the next round. Again, we'll see how it goes.

Dear Richard,

Do I reveal myself to be particularly stupid if I say I did check out the website before I said I wasn't; entirely clear?

Armies PMed.

Thanks, Martin, just beat me to it. I'd set the challenge up, got distracted by a phone call, and then came here to issue the challenge, only to find you'd posted one for me.

Best of luck.
