Immortal Fire Triple Life Tournament

Post by Jonathan4290 » Mon Apr 25, 2016 9:27 pm

This is the thread for the Immortal Fire Triple Life tournament.

Please read all instructions below carefully.

Important dates:
- Players will have 2 weeks to complete each round, which will consist of one match for each player.
- May 20: first round begins
- Jun 3: second round begins
- Jun 17: third round begins
- Jul 4: fourth round begins etc.

Joining the tournament:
- Each player selects 3 armies from the Immortal Fire book each representing a “life”.
- The total points value of selected armies must be 6 or less
- Points value based on Ianiow’s classification of armies (found here: http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtop ... 84&t=49989) with exceptional being worth 4, good 3, average 2, and poor 1

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.
- Placement in the bracket will be done randomly.

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:
Leonidas (Spartans) 30/45 defeats Xerxes (Persians) 50/50

The bracket can be found here: https://1drv.ms/x/s!AsXtr1yAx47Sghn2yIsQZKViYeKM

Good to have you aboard everyone. Be patient as the tournament fills up slowly. I don't think players visit the forum as often right now.

We are currently at 10 players with only 6 spots remaining. Please send in army choices when you get a chance so we can hopefully start as soon as we get 16.

Yes please. It looks like the release of the new version is not too far off now (if the recent post from "admin" is correct and there are no other unforeseen problems) so I had better get some practice!

I would like to rise from the grave and participate too, presuming that the tournament will commence after the new version release.

If there is still a space, I'd like to give FoG another go.
I see I still have an asterisk against my name.
I "think" I sent a PM with my three armies, did it arrive?

This tournament will not wait for new version. I have heard that it is really close to being released for the last 2 years. It is up to you whether you would like to participate knowing it is using old version.

Also, everyone with an asterisk beside their name, please PM me army choices as soon as possible.

Ah, in that case I will regretfully withdraw. Good luck everyone. (Strolls back to grave)
