August Challenge: Geneva Convention, 1864

Postby DoomYoshi on Fri Aug 01, 2014 7:10 pm

Official Monthly Challenge for August 2014

Henri Dunant, first winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and subject of countless biographies is perhaps best known for his work in establishing the Red Cross. As a volunteer for that organization, I could extol you all day on the merits of it. Rather, I would prefer to look at Dunant's other great legacy - the Geneva Convention.

The Crimean War was making people aware of the atrocities that war could include. 12 Nations sat down to codify a system of rules for armed engagements, which to this day most countries still abide by (or have at least agreed to). The entire contents are enclosed below:

This was signed August 22nd, 1864. This means we have had 150 years of Geneva Convention.

There are and have been many criticisms of the Convention. According to the Wikipedia article:
Despite its intent of ameliorating the ravages of war, the inception of the 1864 Geneva Convention inaugurated "a renewal of military activity on a large scale, to which the people of western Europe…had not been accustomed since the first Napoleon had been eliminated."

In the modern era, since the Geneva Conventions do not apply to Civil Wars, they are of questionable influence. Once again, the wars in the Crimea raise questions about the atrocities of war.

As we play our war games, it helps that we only have to watch the numbers tick down. If instead of numbers, those were our soldiers, or conscripted slaves, or insect aliens it would be pretty disheartening. Let us remember that while
Genghis Khan wrote:A man's greatest pleasure is to defeat his enemies... to hold their wives and daughters in his arms
it is also true that
Sir Winston Churchill wrote:When You Have To Kill A Man It Costs Nothing To Be Polite


Since there were 12 signatories, there are 12 players. The map is from the era shortly after Geneva Convention went into practice. (Unification Germany would have been better but it's too small for 12 players). The Zombie spoils will represent POW camps. Reinforcements are unlimited, which won't matter early on, but will ensure a great late game. Note the new scoring system! Due to the longer nature of the games, I have opened the completion window for an extra month.

NO SIGN-UPS REQUIRED - Everyone is eligible!
To sign up all you need to do is join and win at least one game started between August 1 and August 31 with the following settings:



Settings
Maps: Eastern Hemisphere
Players per game: 12 (Twelve)
Game Type: Standard
Initial Troops: Automatic
Round Limit: Any
Play Order: Sequential
Spoils: Zombie
Reinforcements: Unlimited
Special Gameplay: Fog of War (Trench Optional)
Round Length: Casual or speed

Medal Criteria
You need at least 300 points for the Challenge Achievement Medal

If you play 24 games or less then:
Each join (bronze token) is worth 1 point
Each win (gold token) is worth 100 points

If you play 25 games or more then:

Each join (bronze token) is worth 1 points
Each win (gold token) is worth 10 points


The settings that must be present are Eastern Hemisphere, 12 player standard, Foggy, Zombie, Unlimited, automatic, sequential
Please double check and make sure you have all these settings set.
The other settings are open.

Wins will still be counted until October 31.

FAQs

Who can play a Challenge?
All challenges are open to everyone, although freemiums may have a problem meeting the game load.

How do we join?
All you have to do is a)create games that meet the requirements or b)join games that meet the requirements. They can be private, public or even tournament games. Team CC is not creating any games, the whole thing is done by users. There is a game-join link at the top of the first post.

What are the prizes?
For reaching the Challenge Goal you get one of the rarest medals on the site, the Challenge medal. Challenges only come around once, if you miss it, you won't ever have another chance.
Image
For scoring the most points in the Challenge: 1 Green Conquer Star
Image
For those who finish in 2nd-5th place in the Challenge and achieve the Goal: 1 Blue Conquer Star
Image

When do I get my prize?
Soon after you meet the requirements!

How is deadbeating dealt with?
Please report deadbeats in your games, I will do a random check. Inventory items will stay, but medals might be taken away if the deadbeats points do not allow for a medal.

Rulings
1. Deadbeats will have entry points stripped.
2. Wins by round limit count as normal wins.
3. Games can always have round limits but they never need to.
4. Inventory relating to the challenge will vanish at the end of the year.
5. Bot games do not score tokens.

Almost a day late, but here we are!

This new scoring system I am hoping will be pretty popular.

Not all future challenges will use this two-tier approach, but most will!

I like it also, but will not join... have to play 12 games to win one, maybe I'll win two of twelve, but still lose 10 (ten) and lose like 300 points (and win 200). Not scored games is a must.

If losing some points fills you with fear, there's something wrong.

We play games, we risk our points. Not to do so undermines the whole concept.

Have to agree with DK here surely half the fun of playing is winning points and risking losing them. I for one wouldn't bother playing if it didn't include points.

It seems like there is a bug in the code right now. Hopefully it will get fixed tonight.

The settings/setup aren't my cup of tea, but I'm always up for a challenge...
and I do like the new scoring system - a very creative solution to a tricky problem.

Interesting, looking forward to it. I really like the new scoring as well, promoting quality over quantity. Nice work DY.

For the record:
Joining a bunch of games and then deadbeating your way down to 24 is automatic disqualification from everything.

Two players, who shall rename nameless joined 93 of the 104 games that are active or waiting for players. They had foed me, and made it so that I could not join any of those games. And when I pm'd them to make them aware, they were one hundred percent uncooperative and unsympathetic. Personally, I feel like they are making themselves to be public nuisances who are violating the spirit of the COMMUNITY challenge. For they are free to foe me or whomever; but once they butt join games in a COMMUNITY challenge and severely limit the games that other players can join, they are not acting within the spirit of the COMMUNITY challenge whatsoever.

VOL, everyone knows the two pricks you're talking about. They are part of the reason I make private games and PM a list of 2000+ players interested in the challenges, but exclude both these players. I will add you to the list if you like.

This is an overall issue with the monthly challenges and why the scoreboards for each are filled with lower to mid ranked players. Very few if any higher ranked players want the epic point rape that comes with these challenges. I lost around 500 points in one of these challenges even though I won above the expected outcome. If I join 12 games and win twice, which would be a good result, I would likely surrender 250 or more points. As I would need at least 3 wins it would likely take me around 20 - 24 games if I play above average. I likely win around 120 points per win and lose around 45 points per loss. Do the math...it is not pretty.
