Autotournament Rules

Tokens are required to enter autotournaments. To find out more about tokens, check out:
http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=207817&p=4556455#p4556466



You can enter as many tournaments as you have tokens for, but each tournament can only be entered once.
This rule matters since once a tournament is filled, a new one of the same type will enter signups.

EDIT:
In 1915, much is happening in the south, as campaigns in Africa and the Middle East heat up. The big operation of the year, however, is the Dardanelles-Gallipoli operation. It's time to update our token-dropping maps accordingly. On February 19th, on the 100th anniversary of the initial naval bombardment of the Gallipoli forts, we will add a new group of maps to the token-dropping list:
Gallipoli (beta) map
WWI Ottoman
Middle East
Europa
Dark Continent
Africa II
Australia
New Zealand

The current list, (Europe1914, Transsib1914, Austro-Hungarian Empire, Unification Germany, England, France1789, and Benelux) will remain active for now and continue dropping tokens for another month, until March 19th.

Original (September 17) list: Europe1914, Austro-Hungarian Empire, King of the Mountains, and Balkan Peninsula
Second (November 17) list: Europe1914, Russia as represented by Transsib1914, Austria as represented by Austro-Hungarian Empire, Germany represented by Unification Germany, Britain represented by England, France represented by France1789, Belgium represented by Benelux.

Scoreboard Explanation

See the scoreboard here

There are 4 types of tokens. Right now only one category is being issued. They don't have a "score", they are just used to enter into the autotournaments. The autotournaments award medals to the winners. Right now, the medals are given a score of 1. Highest score wins (in 4 years). There will most likely be an "after a year" prize.

Quarterly Prizes

Going forward, we will give 1 Green and 1 Blue every quarter.

The Quarterly Green: Will be given to the player at the top of the scoreboard at the end of each quarter. However, the same player can only get it once per year. Thus, if the player on the top of the scoreboard already got one within the last four quarters, it will go to the 2nd place player. If that player already got one in the last four quarters, it will go to the third place player and so on.

The Quarterly Blue: Will be a "most-improved" star. We'll need a snapshot of the scoreboard at the end of each quarter. The player who moves up the most spaces on the scoreboard will win the Blue. If multiple players all jumped the same number of spaces, the one who began at the highest point in the previous quarter will get the star.

Both the Quarterly Green and the Quarterly Blue will come with a GA medal to commemorate the triumph.

General FAQ


Q: How do I join these autotournaments?


A: Here is our critically-acclaimed Seven Step program.

With pictures:

Image

5. The description in the autotourney box is a short description, because of space limitations. For more details, you can visit the List of Current and Upcoming Tournaments post, which will usually have a more thorough discussion of the tourney. For older tourneys, you can look for the appropriate archive in the List of Previous Tournaments

Image

Q: I came in 17th in a tournament that gives helmets for placing 18th or better. Why didn't I get a helmet?

A: You're reading the tournament description wrong. When the tournament description says that a helmet is given for 18th place or whatever, it only means 18th place. It does NOT mean all places up to and including 18th. This is a quasi-random participation bonus.

This sounds like fun.

But if I understand this correctly, the current games can only be played by speeders who happened to catch the tokens.

Would love to play some of these but I don't do speed games.

To get a Tank token, one has to play a game on Austro-Hungarian Empire,Balkan Peninsula,King Of The Mountains,Europe 1914 and hope it drops. The higher the # of players there is, the better drop rate you get!

Before you ask, they were briefly awarded for speed games on all maps.

You can access them from the Great War banner on your My Games page, or from the tournament tab at the top.

No, it's all games on the 4 maps listed. It is not speed games right now.

mathonwy wrote:This sounds hella fun but maybe a little too ambitious for the tools that are currently available?

4 years is a very long time and without an automated way to keep track of everything, it'll be near impossible to maintain everyone's interest that long (and that's includes the game coordinator's as well).

Think about it, you are telling a 4 year story using a forum and text and nothing else. I don't know about you but my attention span won't last that long and I don't care enough to keep on top of it which is what your ultimate goal should be if you're doing something like this.

If you're doing something this long,
- you need an easy way of tracking what has gone on, what's is currently going on and what is coming up and a forum is not the way to do it as it's just too much typing and reading. You need a static page for players to go to that contains the schedule and record so far etc etc and you need this to make the players care about what's actually going.
- you want a consistent group of players that goes from game 1 to game end. Just like a 4 year AD&D game, you want consistency. You want the same GM and the same core group of players. You want players to start knowing who each other are and you want players to be engaged into what's going on. If you don't, the game coordinator is going to find himself quickly losing interest FAST.

It just seems a little rushed and unplanned right now?

-Math


We have automated token, and tournament systems. I'm not sure what else I could use.

I don't think we want a consistent group or even if we could expect it. This is somewhat of a marathon, not a series of sprints. I doubt the community team will even be the same in 4 years ;)

We will have scoreboard prizes semi-frequently until then.
I'm happier than a clam in aspic.

Just a stupid question about tokens. - Do you have to win one of the listed games to get a drop chance?

If you just have to play then can we get an idea of what the drop chance is. - I have 14 newly started games of the current types and so far no tokens. - So if its neccessary to play a hundred games to get 3 tokens, Im thinking that the tournaments will only be joined by the very lucky or the insanely active?

Am I missing something here?
