I like this map a lot. In fact, I proposed something identical to it a couple months ago http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=106113. The only difference is I proposed a 64 team bracket instead of a 32 team bracket, and I thought one way attacks might work. Other than that, pretty much identical. And MrBenn, after saying you were "disappointed" in my map, I'm glad that you have come around to the extent that you made it yourself.

Interesting...
I personally give you some credit for this decent map to come into existence.

This may be true, and I am not crying for acknowledgment. I guess my point is that the reason I didn't pursue the map before was the unexpected negative feedback it got, especially from MrBenn. To discourage someone from making a map and then making it yourself shows a certain lack of maturity, especially for the leader of the Foundry. Guess I'm just a bit "disappointed"... but don't worry, it probably won't last.

Hang on a second, that's gross misrepresentation of what I actually said:

I asked Coleman to be involved with this project right at the very start, but he disappeared again :-(

Anyway, have I mentioned that I'm really really excited about this?

So to clarify... the 3rd place playoffs territory is not part of the objective?

Somehow your remark sent my twisted mind to this:

I'm still confused on how each Group Winner and Runner-up are determined.
CURRENCY CONVERSION: 1 SaxBucks = .02 AoGRubles

To redeem AoGRubles, write on AoG's wall with order.
Menu:
-1 nietzsche dickpic: 1 AoGRuble
-1 AoG dickpic: 100 AoGRubles
-1 "AoG is awesome!" t-shirt: 500 AoGRubles

I have a couple of questions.
MrBenn wrote:Players begin in the group stages.... Seeded teams will be distributed evenly and will start with an extra man (each player will start the game with the same number of men on the pitch).
So does that mean that if you're playing in a 1v1 game like the "Official 2010 CC World Cup - Singles" tournament, which I am (my first tournament :? - wish me luck :!: ), each player will begin with 2 of the counties in each group (distributed evenly)? Also, extra over and above what?
MrBenn wrote:To get a bonus from the group stage, you'll need to hold 3/4 teams in a group AND the winner or runner-up....

The bonuses for reaching the Quarter or Semi Finals are not accumulative; it's +2 regardless of how many Semi-Finalist positions you hold.
Are the bonuses from the group stage cumulative? The map says that you can progress to the playoffs as Group Winner or Runner-up, but what's to prevent you from taking both. In which case would you get, say, 3+2 bonus for holding all 4 teams and the winner and the Runner-up or does just the largest bonus apply? Is that a stupid question?

I guess that was actually 4 questions.

Are there going to be no limits to the number of non-speed games we can make/join on the World Cup Map map (like on St.Patrick's last year)?

Would have maybe been an idea to run a speed tournament to coincide with the map and speed game holiday.

I'd be up for it if someone to help me with (a) Live Game Invites (b) Marketing (e.g. Announcement / Official Tournament Status
