Classical Antiquity is now full. Reserve places only.

Post by stockwellpete » Thu Jan 10, 2019 8:56 am

Here is the full army list for the Classical Antiquity league section. There are over 80 armies available to choose from and, initially, players are required to choose 4 of them (from different nations, so not 3 Carthaginian armies and a Seleucid army, for example). Please post your army selections in your order of preference in this thread.

Once players have been organised into divisions of 10 based on their playing experience and ability, they will then be allocated one of their four choices. The allocation process will give preference to the lowest rated players (see FOG2DL ratings) in each division. Only very occasionally might a player be asked to make another selection at this stage.

Players will need to have both the base game and the Immortal Fire DLC to enter this section of the tournament.

Please be sure to familiarise yourself with both the Rules of Competition and the Players' Guide.

Biblical: there is 1 place left!

Post by stockwellpete » Thu Jan 10, 2019 9:12 am

Here is the full army list for the new Biblical league section. It is split into two sections. There are 16 "hoplite" armies available and you may choose just one of these as part of your four overall choices. There are 24 other armies to choose from and players may choose up to 4 of them (provided they are from different nations, so not 3 Achaemenid Persian or 2 Egyptian armies, for example). Please post your army selections in your order of preference in this thread.

Once players have been organised into divisions of 10 based on their playing experience and ability, they will then be allocated one of their four choices. The allocation process will give preference to the lowest rated players (see FOG2DL ratings) in each division. Only very occasionally might a player be asked to make another selection at this stage.

Players will need to have the base game, the Immortal Fire and the Rise of Persia DLC's, and you will also need to download the TT mod (v1.5.3) to enter this section.

Themed Event recruitment is now closed.

Post by stockwellpete » Thu Jan 10, 2019 9:49 am

Matches in this section are played to a tighter schedule and must be prioritised above matches from other sections. Either player may set up the challenge in this section. Remember to PM your opponent as well as placing the challenge and password in this thread. The group stage matches will be completed in the first month of the competition, the knock-out matches will be allowed around 18 days for completion. Unfinished matches will be subject to adjudication.

I am hoping that we will be able to recruit 24 players to this section this time so that we can have two separate pools of 12 players in each. This will mean that we can have three players in each of the four qualifying groups instead of the usual four. Players will then play paired games ("mirror matches") at the group stage instead of single battles. If we only manage to recruit 16 players to this section we will use the old system again, where the group stage matches are single battles and the knockout stage of the tournament are paired games.

For the first time in the FOG2DL the Themed Event will be using scenarios that I have made rather than the "skirmish mode" that is used elsewhere in the tournament. These multi-player scenarios can be downloaded from the community downloads area in-game. The five (or six) scenarios are as follows . . .

Group stage
Soissons v2 (486 AD)
Tolbiac v2 (496 AD)
Vouille v2 (507 AD)

Quarter-finals
Invasion of Burgundy v1 (523 AD)

Semi-finals
Vezeronce v1 (524 AD)

Final
Autun v1 (532 AD)

Please note that the scenarios for the group stage matches have an additional "kill the king" victory condition which means that the battle will end if one of the commander-in-chiefs is killed. In these circumstances the matches will be scored according to the following example - Player A is leading Player B 26-12 but then loses his commander-in-chief: the match will be scored 51-26 to player B.

This is important because where players finish with the same number of points at the end of the group stage, the points aggregate from the matches between those players will be used to decide the final places in the group table. If this does not separate the players then lots will be drawn to determine which player proceeds to the next stage of the competition.

What's on offer for Season 4?

Post by stockwellpete » Thu Jan 10, 2019 11:45 am

I am just putting the final touches to the line-up for Season 4.

We will be having our usual core sections again - Classical Antiquity, Late Antiquity and Early Middle Ages. There will be 40 places available for each of these sections.

In addition, the Themed Event will also be returning although it may be possible for a slight change in format if we are able to recruit 24 players rather than just 16. What I would like to do is have two pools of 12 rather than one pool of 16 so that we can avoid the situation where A-rated players are drawn with C- or D-rated players at the group stage. One of the strongest features of the FOG2DL is that it provides an opportunity for players to compete against others of a similar standard. Also, in the Themed Event we will be using scenarios this time rather than the "skirmish mode". This format worked very well before back in the old FOG1DL.

Finally, there will be a brand new Biblical section this time that will replace the From Maurya to Alaric (FMA) section that ran in the first three seasons. We decided to drop the FMA section because it has proved to be very difficult to come up with 9 equal match-ups each season, leading to a situation where some players felt that they were a bit disadvantaged. The new Biblical section is not without its issues either as we only have the Rise of Persia DLC at the moment that covers the later part of this period. So, to increase the number army of army choices we have included some of the earlier Classical Antiquity armies in the army list and we have taken advantage of Paul's excellent TT mod (version 1.5.3). What it means this time is that a number of hoplite armies that are not strictly "Biblical" have been included, although players will be restricted to including just one of these in their four army choices. Once a further Biblical DLC is released the army list will be adjusted to exclude these early Classical Antiquity armies. There will be 40 places available for this section too.

You did apply for a place as a reserve before but when a place became available I was unable to contact you. I am quite happy to send you an invitation for Season 4 but I need to know that you definitely intend to play your full set of matches. I always have players who "no show" or drop out quickly, but I do everything I can to keep this disruption to a minimum. Can you just confirm that you will be available for the full season please?

Invitations have been sent out to all those players who participated in Seasons 2 and 3 of the FOG2DL, except for those players who are excluded from this season because they failed to complete their matches in Season 3. Invitations have also been sent to around 75 new players who are either playing in the automated event or have recently appeared in the multi-player lobby of the game.

If you have played in the FOG2DL before and have not received an invitation please contact me in the first instance.
