FOG2 Goes Large! The Grand Tournament!

Post by Daniele » Mon Apr 27, 2020 2:08 pm

We are pleased to announce another Field of Glory 2 public tournament. This will be played using the normal Field of Glory 2 Multiplayer system and our automated tournament system.
This time we have gone for Large-sized battles, and are showcasing some of the new units added in update v1.5.28.
Anyone who has Field of Glory II can enter. You do not need to own any DLCs to enter.

To enter, go to the tournament page here:
https://www.slitherine.com/tournaments/1/0

The general tournament rules can be found here:
https://www.slitherine.com/tournaments/rules

The first round will commence on Monday 4th May 2020 at 10.00 am GMT. No further entries can be accepted after the tournament has begun.

Specific tournament rules:
This tournament will involve three rounds. The battles will be Large-sized custom battles:
  • 547 BC: Lydian 550-546 vs Achaemenid Persian 547 BC (Thymbra). Mediterranean Agricultural.
    301 BC: Antigonid 320-301 BC vs Lysimachid 320-281 BC with Seleucid 302-301 BC allies. Mediterranean Agricultural.
    280 BC: Pyrrhic 280-275 BC vs Roman 280-220 BC. Mediterranean Agricultural.
Games are paired, so each matchup will be played both ways. Each player will be able to choose his forces using the normal force selection system. In each round, all players will be playing on the same randomly generated map for both games.
First round pairings will be selected randomly, subsequent rounds using the Swiss Chess system. Nobody will play the same opponent in more than one round.

The scoring system is as follows:

If a game runs to the turn limit, each side scores points equal to the enemy % routed at the turn limit. If the game times out, adjustments may be made, depending on how far the game has progressed and who took longer over their turns – see below.

If one army breaks, the victorious player scores 60 points plus the difference between the enemy % routed and his own % routed. The loser scores points equal to the winner's % routed.

Examples:
1) If Ben defeats Tamas's army, and has inflicted 45% routed on Tamas, and Tamas has inflicted 15% on Ben, Ben will score 60 + (45 – 15) = 90, Tamas will score 15.
2) However, if Ben defeated Tamas’s army by inflicting 62% routed on Tamas, and Tamas had inflicted 56% routed on Ben, Ben would get 60 + (62 – 56) = 66 points, and Tamas would get 56.
3) If the game is unfinished (or it reached the turn limit) with Ben inflicting 20% routed on Tamas, and Tamas inflicting 10% routed on Ben, Ben would score 20, and Tamas would score 10. (Provided that between them they have played at least 24 turns in all – see below).
Note that this system rewards aggressive play over desultory skirmishing. If you rout an enemy unit then hide for the rest of the game, both players will get extremely low scores - lower than if they played hard and lost.

Byes:
If an odd number of players sign up for the tournament, one player will get a bye in each round. In the first round this is random. In subsequent rounds it will be the player with the lowest score. The score for a BYE is 75 points for each game.
Round times and timing out:
Each round will last 14 days.
Any battles that are not completed by the end of the round will be timed out. The player who has had the game in his “My Turns” box the longest overall will be the one who is deemed to be timed out. This will not normally incur any penalties, unless insufficient turns have been played: If the timed-out player has played less than 12 turns, his score will be reduced proportionately, and his opponent will be granted the BYE score if it exceeds his current score. If the timed-out player has played less than 6 turns, he will not be included in the draw for the next round. This is to prevent someone else’s enjoyment being spoiled by being drawn against someone who has apparently dropped out of the tournament.

Just finished my game against Frederic(me playing Persians and him Lydians) ,I could not get the final turn(where I lost the game) to load to the server. I tried multiple times but to no avail. In the end I had to cancel and re run the turn. This time around a rally that Frederic got in the first try did not occur. It did however mean that the game continued into Frederics turn(whereas before it ended at the end of the rally phase when his cavalry unit rallied). I believe the score ended up a little better in Frederic's favour the second time so I hope this is not an issue.Thought you might want to know what happened in case anything weird shows up either on the server or in the scores. Either way , my defeat was deserved :-)
