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

Search link for the newly-added maps:Search link to find waiting token-eligible games


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.

I got one big regret about this event
I planed to participate every battle (tourney)
But as you don't get any recognition for participating
Players not playing the event but only maps that gives "canons" are better placed in ranking
I propose you give once per battle a good soldier "helmet" medal and that retroactive

i would partake in more tourneys as well, but rarely have the required great war tokens. the maps that drop them are too restrictive. i understand wanting to keep them "WW1 themed", but for many players (like myself), i'm sure they don't play those maps very often.

Today there is a much-expanded list of maps that will drop tokens:

But yes, of course, there has to be some kind of WWI connection every time.

As for the helmet idea, we'll give it some thought.

Hello again, maybe it is just me, but I attempted to start several games with the new maps (Middle East, Africa II) and the new games don't show up on the "Search link to find waiting token-eligible games" link on the Great War info page. I dropped the games because I wanted to make sure they were token-eligible before I used up my game slots. I'm sure they are dropping tokens for those maps, but the link is not picking them up. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks for the help.

The search link hasn't been updated yet, but those games should count.

Current state of the Great War autotournament component.

So far, 56 players have earned 1 or more Battle Medals, with 5 players earning 3, 7 having exactly 2, and 44 players capturing just one. That's 73 Battle Medals total. 59 of 119 autotournaments are now complete. (The number of Battle Medals is 1.23 times the number of completed tournaments. Most of the larger tournaments give 2 Battle medals, and take longer to finish. The really small tourneys give only one Battle Medal, and finish faster. Thus it's not unexpected that the medal-to-tourney ratio is closer to 1 than to 2 right now. It will get closer to 2 as the event goes on.)

Here's how we stand with the autotournaments thus far:
(prototype tournament with link, date launched, number of tournament iterations, total participants, current status)
Battle of Cer 2014-09-17 3 60 all done
Assassination of Franz Ferdinand 2014-09-18 3 72 all done
The Black and Aegean Seas 2014-09-18 2 64 all done
The Battle of Antivari 2014-09-18 4 80 all done
Battle of Tannenberg 2014-09-18 5 80 all done
Siege of Tsingtao 2014-09-24 7 112 all done
Battle of the Drina 2014-09-24 2 60 1 active in final round
First Battle of the Masurian Lakes 2014-09-25 2 64 1 active in round 5/6
The Fall of Liege 2014-10-03 3 72 all done
Mulhouse-Lorraine 2014-10-03 7 112 all done
Heligoland Bight 2014-10-13 3 90 all done
Battle Off Texel 2014-10-19 7 112 all done
Silver Helmets 2014-10-26 6 108 ongoing all, most just past 50% done
Escape of the Goeben 2014-10-30 1 64 ongoing, in final round
U-Boat Part 1 2014-11-02 7 112 ongoing, all in final round
Charleroi, Namur, and Mons 2014-11-05 4 80 ongoing, various stages from round 2 to 5
Trindade 2014-11-09 6 96 all done
Maubeuge, Le Cateau, and St. Quentin 2014-11-14 4 80 1 finished, 3 ongoing in final round
The Rape of Belgium 2014-11-23 4 120 ongoing, various stages from round 6 to 8
La Première Bataille de la Marne 2014-11-30 4 96 ongoing, 1 in round 3, rest in round 2
Bita Paka 2014-12-07 5 90 ongoing, various stages from round 5 to 7
First Aisne 2014-12-14 3 72 1 finished, 2 ongoing in final round
The Defense of the Realm Act 2014-12-17 3 48 2 finished, 1 in round 3
The Christmas Truce 2014-12-24 4 100 ongoing, all in round 3
Rio De Oro 2015-01-01 3 96 all done
Race to the Sea 2015-01-12 4 80 ongoing mostly in first round
Sandfontein 2015-01-24 4 72 ongoing, all in round 3
The Black Sea Raid 2015-01-31 3 96 ongoing, all in round 2
Galicia-Lemberg 2015-02-07 3 84 ongoing, all in round 1
Battle of Coronel 2015-02-11 3 72 ongoing, 1 in round 1, others in round 2
The Bergmann Offensive 2015-02-20 still taking on players
First Siege of Przemysl 2015-02-23 still taking on players
The First Oil War and Basra 2015-02-26 stilltaking on players
Champagne 2015-02-28 still taking on players

For now we have no easy way of counting total unique participants. So far our tourneys have gotten 2652 sign-ups, but of course the overwhelming majority of those represent players who have signed up for multiple tourneys. One of the projects for the summer is to find a way to count total unique participants.

We would gratefully accept volunteers who would like to design some non-tourney events for this. In particular, some WWI-based scenarios and campaigns would be welcome.

Reading here, I get the picture that Kotm should be a token map until march 19th.

Im not getting Kotm in the link though?

Edit: Much if not all of the original list of token maps seem not to be included in the link.

KotM was only on the list from Sept. 17th to Nov. 17th.

The second list was valid from Nov. 17th to March 19th. The third list has been valid from Feb. 19th to whenever the next change comes. We decided to start having one-month overlaps between lists, so that people have a chance to finish some of the games they start on each list. However, there was no overlap on the first switchover; that idea only occurred to us in January.

We've given out a few. It's still in dispute what they will be used for.

So far, Zeppelins have only been given out in the Creative Components.

Helmets have been given out in some tournaments, rather inconsistently. In a few cases, like La Première Bataille de la Marne, they were added to the top prizes as a type of sweetener. More recently, like in Battle of Cocos which will launch later today, a helmet prize was randomly assigned to a non-winning position. This is a rather severely modified implementation of pamoa's suggestion.

I can't find any pistols that we've given out. I thought we had, but I may be mistaken.

There are at least two lines of future development that haven't happened yet due to lack of volunteer manpower, but that I have high hopes for.
  1. I want to have major battles fought out as clan wars, with clans representing the various major powers. I haven't yet had time to discuss this with the CDs and get it cleared, but I still intend to.
  2. Now that we have Scenarios and will soon have Campaigns, there will be a of course be some Scenarios and Campaigns based on Great War battles, and these might eventually be as big a component as the autotourneys.
Either of the above could see heavy use of the (currently underused) tokens.
