First Tournament

Post by Shards » Wed Jul 22, 2020 4:44 pm

See: viewtopic.php?f=58&t=100267

For information, the map cycle on this tournament is:

1. Two Bridges
2. Peninsula Invasion
3. Karjalan Kesa

This is a relatively small and quick turn-around tournament as we want to ensure that we've not got any bugs or issues in there :)

Yup me too, bring it on! I assume this is the equivalent of the signup sheet.

Well that was more popular than I expected :D

So I've expanded it to 48 players now!

Are moderators not allowed to join?
I've tried 2 times without any luck, and I think I actually was the very first to try joining :(

Just to confirm, that is UTC, correct? (I'd hate to miss the start!)

I signed in too. And yeah there are a surprising amount of players. Bodes well. What's this business about missing the start mean? I assume I'll just get an e-mail about my turn as usual, only presumeably the boot deadline is a little faster than the usual seven days. So long as I'm within a reasonable timeframe there are no problems, I hope. Like I might be sleeping or something but absolute worst case scenario is ten hours for me to respond.

I was only kidding about missing the start. Just my jabbering.

But I won't miss it.

I think I like the tourney format. It's better than single elimination by a long shot. Everybody gets to play 3 games -- I like that.

Oh good I was afraid I'd be passed out drunk and then not only have a hangover but a "you lose by default!" e-mail to anticipate :P I'll see if I can't nag more people into joining the tournament before it starts too.

Yeah, you'll get an email when the tournament starts, and the usual emails when it's your turn.

There's no "boot deadline" per se, players get booted from the tournament if they don't play their games at all and we apply a score adjustment if they only play a few turns (to avoid their opponent being disadvantaged).

Also, you can't "resign" from a tournament game and most of the maps will give you an incentive to keep playing, so it's worth playing your matches to a close.

I notice even after expanding to 48 players, it's still full up! Too late to increase the number of players again?

I think that I'm okay with 48 for a first tournament, and I don't want to be messing with settings ahead of a weekend 😁
