We are pleased to announce another Field of Glory 2 public tournament: "Rise of Macedon"
This will be played using the normal Field of Glory 2 Multiplayer system and our automated tournament system and 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: Tournaments
General tournament rules can be found here: Rules
The first round will commence on Monday 1st February 2021 at 10.00 am GMT. No further entries can be accepted after the tournament has begun.
This tournament will involve three rounds. Each round will last 14 days. The battles will be Medium-sized custom battles:
Greece 338 BC: Macedonian 355-329 BC vs Greek 460-281 BC. Mediterranean Agricultural.
Persia 333 BC: Macedonian 355-329 BC with Greek 460-281 BC allies vs Persian 419-329 BC. Mediterranean Agricultural.
India 326 BC: Macedonian 355-329 BC vs Indian 500 BC-319 AD. Tropical. (Note that the Macedonians use the 355-329 list, rather than the 328-321 list, to prevent them from having elephants in this battle).
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.
