Grand Christmas FoG 2 Tourney Error?

Post by mst007 » Tue Jan 22, 2019 7:22 am

Having a great time playing in the Grand Christmas Tourney, currently in Round 4 of 5. From the morning of the 21st Jan UK time, the overall scores page has me in 2nd place (unexpected), and shows my Round 4 game as completed, albeit with 2 asterisks next to each players name in the Round 4 section details below the main scores. The score is shown as 85% to 20%. After seeing this I assumed the battle must be over and expected to receive the "game over" email, but 10-12 hours later I received an unexpected battle turn from my opponent. The score stood at 40% to 20% which is naturally not enough for victory, and so I fired off another turn. I thought the score system on the Tourney results page must be in error and would correct itself overnight, but it hasn`t. Can anyone please take a look at this and clarify what has happened? Thanks, Mark

It appears to have corrected itself now. Sometimes there is a delay before it updates.

What happened was (almost certainly) not a bug. The game returns a "snapshot" score to the tournament system when each turn is uploaded. This takes into account whether victory would occur if there was no change to the rout % in the "automated phase" (unresolved melees, routs, pursuits, pursuit charges, rallies) which is processed after the replay and just before the other player's turn. This is so that if the other player never gets around to playing his turn, the victor won't lose out on getting a victory.

Sometimes, however, a unit will rally in the automated phase, which changes the result so it is no longer a victory by the time the victory conditions are adjudicated, just before the player's turn. The tournament score will get updated accordingly, with sometimes a delay before the server refreshes the page.

This is probably what happened in your case.
