OK. So some entrants missed the bit that said "have taken 95% or more of your turns".

I've lowered the bar to 90%, AND NO LOWER!

Hopefully the mechanism of losing points in the tournament will prevent or reduce any missed turns.

With 33 games played so far. If you play a few more games and make sure you take ALL your turns, you should be able to get yout attendance rating up to 90%.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Update

I've just worked out that you need to take somewhere in the region of another 121 turns without missing a single go to get up to 90%. That can be as many as 20 games.

If this were any other tournament, the answer would be no. However, the idea of this tournament is to give low ranked players a chance of playing in a tournament against players of a similar skill level. The attendance rating bar, as well as losing points for missing turns, is to encourage entrants to play consistently and not skip turns. I am well aware that some players miss turns through no fault of their own (no internet access, work, school, commitments etc.) and that a minority deliberately skip turns thinking that they can gain an advantage with the deferred armies rule (or they're on 5 cards in an escalating game and don't want to cash yet).

I will put a poll up and see if the other entrants want the attendance rating bar dropped or not.

I'd like to join this tournament!

If it's possible to add a map, then I would go for BeNeLux. But if not, then I'll choose for British Isles 2!:)

I'm a cadet with the score of 844. Kind of noobish huh:$

Count me in! ;)

If I've missed something, then feel free to message me! ;D

I've taken 93% of my turns. Been on holidays for a while:(

2 questions... are you going to have an updated list of the entrants so people know how many slots remain available? and are you going to list which maps are leading in the vote for maps? this would be very helpful. i suggested a few lower ranked members of my clan join this tournament to gain some tournament experience, and they said they were not sure if they wanted to join, because the info i just listed above is not readily available. one of them wants to know the quality of the players in the tournament, the other wants to know which maps are going to be involved or possibly involved before joining. so, maybe making a players list and map vote leading list will help fill this up. just a suggestion.-0

Two answers

1) After the first posting describing the tournament is an entrants list which I keep as up to date as possible. Also the tournament title has the number of entrants/total entrants required after the title (e.g. 8/16 means 8 people have signed up and the tournament needs 16 people to be filled).

2) Directly beneath the entrants list is a list of the maps nominated so far and the number of votes for each, which I also keep as up to date as possible.

Also, each participant can nominate up to 4 maps, and some have kept their nominations in reserve for later. This is fine. Just make sure you get your nominations in before the tournament actually starts.

Tip: Some forum viewers might not be used to the forum layouts, finding themselves reading the latest posts, and missing the posts at the beginning of the forum thread that has all the tournament information, entrants lists etc. At the top and bottom of each page, on the right hand side, are some little boxes with numbers in them. Click on the [1] box and it should take you to the beginning of the forum thread.

OK. I'll humour you. Funny. Ha ha.

No more posts please, caymanmew, unless you have something useful to say. I'm sure the people who want to join are capable of deciding for themselves which maps they would like.

Thank you.

Re: Cooks and Cadets Tournament I (Full - 4 reserves needed)

Postby Hoagy on Tue Jul 07, 2009 6:34 pm

All the players are in now. Reserves (ideally 4) are still needed, eligibility requirements being the same as noted in the main posting.

I'll apply for tournament priveledges now, but will give it a day or so from this posting before starting the tournament, in order to give entrants the chance to nominate maps if they haven't yet done so (or want to use their remaining nominations if they didn't use all four).

As some of you might have noticed, the tournament name has been changed from Cook & Cadets Tournament I to Rookies Tournament I. There have already been tournaments with similar names, so this was changed in order to avoid confusion.
