Rise of Rome Triple Life Tournament

Post by Jonathan4290 » Mon Sep 12, 2016 1:14 am

I am looking to run a Rise of Rome triple life tournament similar to the Immortal Fire one that is currently winding down. If you would like to participate, please post your name below and send me your army choices in a private message. All skill levels are welcome. I am looking to have between 16-20 players participate.

Please read all instructions below carefully.

Important dates:
- Each round take approximately 2 weeks
- You are free to begin playing your next round's match if your opponent has been decided. There is no need to wait for all of a round's matches to be complete.

Joining the tournament:
- Each player selects 3 armies from the Rise of Rome book or base game DAG 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:
Romans (Caesar) 30/45 defeats Numidians (Juba) 50/50

I'd like to join in too please. I'll send my preferences separately.
I notice there was some discussion on ianiow's list afterwards. Should we use his original list?

I'm in. You should allow the Romans and Carthaginians from the FoG DAG besides the actual RoR ones. Excluding Hannibal's list would seem odd indeed for this theme.

Hello all. We are just going to wait another few days and begin with whichever players we have. The tournament bracket works for most numbers of players.

Check back around Oct 17 for beginning instructions.

We are virtually ready to begin. Matchups are below. I have grouped Sirlancelot22 and Therealevan together because I just realized I still do not have army choices from them. So everyone else is ready to begin, Sirlancelot22 and Therealevan: send your army choices ASAP.

Matchups with everyone having 3 lives:
Batesmotel vs LordNytram
NikiForosFokas vs Jonathan4290
IMC vs MikeMarchant
Waynel001 vs EdmundBlackadder
Klayeckles vs Iandavidsmith

Need to send army choices, then to play:
Sirlancelot22 vs Therealevan

If we do not hear from Therealevan by the weekend, I will accept a replacement for him or simply have him forfeit his matches as they come up.
