First player run tournament rules and pairings!!!!

Post by paulolszanski2 » Fri Sep 10, 2010 6:58 pm

Tournament Rules

1. Knockout Tournament. 4 Rounds total. Just winners of each round will continue to the next.

2. Each Round will be played in one fixed map :

Round 1 : Road to Caen

Round 2 : D-Day+3

Round 3 : Desert Fox

Round 4 : Race for the Town

3. Players will be paired (your opponent will be communicated by email) and each pair plays the map twice, picking one different side each time.

4. Scoring Rules :

- Winner is decided by scenario wins

-If tied, total number of flags controlled after both games

-If tied again, best ratio of Total Kills/Losses of both games

5. Please send results by email to me including above mentioned details of both games.
NO SURRENDERS ALLOWED

It would be nice if everyone posted in this thread so we all could pm each other easily.
I'm searching for some post from jhdeerslayer all over the forum and it's a bit tedious.

We just found an issue playing our first round that should be clearly estated here as to avoid any further misunderstanding :

NO SURRENDERS ALLOWED IN ANY CASE, as it might lead to gamey situations. The scenarios must be played all the way to the end.

Too bad i just didnt realize before. Sorry for that.

Just surrender when you are winning, and say, okay lets count the flags :)

I agree no surrender, because even if you are losing you don't give the other person a chance to capture as much as he would have.

The worst case is that you can surrender when losing but maybe you still hold a couple flags. So even if counted as scenario loss, if you win the other scenario you have high advantage. Also, for the Total Units Ratio solution, the result would get corrupted as you should have lost more units.

I would say a Surrender means you concede the WHOLE round to your opponent, and you are out of the tournament. Real surrender.

Awesome, thanks for setting this up! Sleet ready to go - only it would only accept one of the games? When I tried the other it just won't come over to my accepted games?

sounds good to me, in that case it would only make sense for you to surrender, if you have lost the first game. Be careful about surrendering anyway, because you might just surrender a game that you are winning.

from online games in general i seen people lose with superior forces because they were afraid to advance.. i remember playing a game where 1 carrier held off an entire fleet with just fighters because they figured they were pulling up to a carrier group, but there was nothing else there ended up costing him the match.. I can see that happening in this game too, 1 sherman fires and you think all hell is about to break lose and retreat.

I had about 14, problem seems to have fixed itself though. Is there a cap on how many games you can have going at once?
