You can forget about that schedule as it is way out of … everything.

Semi-finals will start in early January; I plan to send a notification once we have our winners decided. If any of the clans want to start in December, clearly I will not object that. Clans can always send dubs or escalating games if their opponents agree and finish most of them before Christmas and NY.

would be nice if you push it to start early January, so the finals can start at beginning of March when can we start collecting applications for CC4.
i know its a bit far looking, but short time planing hasnt done anything good so far, and i think we can all agree that Conqueror Cup has proven once more to be most important clan thing on CC... even more important then your sex exchange surgery.

That wasn't that important apparently. Just a rash decision over a bottle of vodka and a free afternoon.

Nothing to stop the collection of applications for CC4 (even if CC3 is ongoing) - the important thing is when to apply the seedings, which rightfully should be done at the conclusion of CC3. But nothing wrong with taking applications early. CL3 is probably the more pertinent tourney that needs to start earlier in 2013 than CC3 - and for that we would want to know the Top 8 seeds (and each group of 8 thereafter) asap.

i dont see problem with seeding. this year, after initial bracket was out ppl consider your draw has been hardest one, yet in first round you got no fight at all, in second round we showed our teeth early on but once you get in front you never look back, and now in quarters looks like TOFU will be the clan who got most comfortable win!
todays clan world has become competitive enough that youll get no walkover wins and in the same time true quality will be seen at the end.

in short, seeding will be fine whenever we apply it.

I agree. Plenty of "upsets" have gone around and the last round has been very intense & close in all the match ups. Again, this is testament to the current clan world and quality of team players on this site. Seeding never seemed that important to me anyway, you have to be able to beat them all to win it all!

seeding is cool though. wouldn't've liked to see these quarter final match ups on the first round. even if a team like osa, seeded 22nd at the time made it through to 1/4 finals and almost created a huge underdog surprise. At the time of the seeding, we were about to win vs empire (or it was already won but not in the f400 ranking yet, don't remember) and we made a huge jump from the 5th till the 2nd or 3rd place after that win, so we basically had clans ranked 1,2 and 3 on our side of the bracket. Anyway, as proved in CL4 phase 2, there is very little difference between the top 8, and whatever happens the best clan will win the title.

freak, we still have a small chance don't give it to tofu yet! ;)

Yup a bit like poker i d say. You can have a good read on your opponent s move and get badbeaten pretty bad due to terrible odds. At a certain level where players make lesser mistakes dice take even more importance

Semi-finals schedule

  • 14th of January — Batch 1 games sent with 1 week to join the games by both clans
  • 28th of January — Batch 2 games sent with 1 week to join the games by both clans
  • 11th of February — Batch 3 games sent with 1 week to join the games by both clans

Clans can change the dates as they see fit upon mutual agreement and my endorsement but I will ask to send last games no later than 11th of February.

Penalty for being late sending or joining games will be one home game forfeiture per day unless opposing clan will agree to play the game out. Please PM me if you want to enforce this rule, all dates will be checked by GMT +0 timezone after I receive a complaint.



Semi-finals format

    — 60 total games
    — 20 doubles
    — 20 triples
    — 20 quads
    — Each clan member can only participate in 20 games per clan war
    — Each clan will pick the map and settings for exactly half of the games
    — In case of a tie, there will be a 7 game tie breaker with each clan choosing three games of any game type and settings. The last game will be Quads on World 2.1, sunny, chained, no spoils
    — Each map can only be used twice per clan per clan war but can only be used once per game type (i.e. once for triples and once for quads)
    — There will be no freestyle, speed, trench warfare, manual deployments, beta maps, or nuclear spoils games allowed

Any players can play in the tie-breaker games in the semi finals even if they have already played in their allotted number of games for that clan war, however, no player can play in more than 2 of the games. Maps cannot be reused in the tie breaker games.

Clans can change tie-breaker rule and game settings restrictions as they see fit upon mutual agreement and my endorsement.

Penalty for breaking a rule will be game forfeiture unless opposing clan will agree to the game result.

I personally have been hinting the mods to do something like an ESPN "sports center" update via video each month. I would not do it myself but I think if someone did it, it could be a lot of fun. I had some free time today and wanted to give my thoughts on the ending of the CC3. That is all.

Cool idea. It gives a bit of a narrative to wars that people may not otherwise be following. :)
