This makes a mockery of premium membership. I don't get why anyone would join.

And if by chance there is a tie, the tie will be broken based on the most regions.

I'm sorry you feel that way, pmchugh. I can't say for certain really why each player has joined, but based on the comments from Conquer Cup I by participants it ranged from it was "entertainment worth 5 bucks" to "wanting a chance to win prizes" to "trying out a new event" on CC.

Maybe in a future issue of the newsletter, they can interview a sampling of Conquer Cup participants and find out their reasons for joining!

Spiesr is indeed correct. You are always automatically slotted into new games, but you have to wait for others to also be ready and waiting too!

Also, it looks like the last games of Round 1 have closed, so we're trucking along!

I was away for the long weekend, and my sitter played a turn in Game 10554484 for me. Should I report myself in C&A :lol: or what should I do in this case?


We understand that mistakes can be made and account sitters can inadvertently take turns for Conquer Cup games. As long as it doesn't not become a habit for multiple Conquer Cup Games or multiple Conquer Cups, no penalties will be suffered (and I don't imagine many people, if any at all, will suffer any penalties). But if we receive reports that it ever does become a habit, further disciplinary action may be taken!

Yea i have been in and out and around and about with work lately and sitters may have sat a turn or 2 in my games... but I don't have a choice unless i miss them which would stink for me :evil:

Those 3 'waiting' are waiting for 1 more player to join them by winning a game in Round 3. Then those 4 will move to the 'Advanced' and they'll be competing against one another in Round 4!

They are not waiting to being a round 3 game, but rather are waiting to leave round 3 and progress to round 4.

Usually I would take a jab at CC if I felt they did something out of bounds.

But I have played a lot of online games. a LOT

A separate pay and play tournament is not out of line and probably not utilized enough here.

The Giants in browser games have done this for years. And it works AND most people have a great time doing it.

Congrats to the fourth and final Finalist of Conquer Cup II...

rutty

Rutty stumbled in Round 1, but sailed with wins due to the Second Chance Round!

Round 1 - Game 10554516
Round 2 - Game 10595758
Round 3 - Game 10677447
Round 4 - Game 10734543
Round 5 - Game 10907302

==============

So it looks like 2 of our Finalists took advantage of the Second Chance Round, while the other 2 breezed on through! It is great to see the addition of the Second Chance Round having an impact on the Finals!

Best of luck to all the Finalists, and thanks for playing to all the participants of Conquer Cup II as well!

Congrats. There was a little discussion about bad play making it a matter of going after the player that messes up. Wasn't the case in my two games.

In round 1 I won a hard fight where only one new player played poorly. In round 3, I made the first elimination, ended the turn with plenty of armies. The next morning I was eliminated, but as it turns out the fourth player won in the end. I did my best and was outplayed.
