HA's 4th of July(Round 1)


Independence Day, commonly known as July 4th or the Fourth of July, commemorates the Continental Congress’ adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. The document, primarily written by Thomas Jefferson, served as a formal announcement that the 13 American colonies were no longer part of the British Empire and would henceforth be free and independent states. Regarded as the birthday of the United States of America, the day is typically celebrated with parades, fireworks, ceremonies, barbecues and family gatherings.

Here are the specifications for: HA's 4th of July

This is a continuation of HighlanderAttack's holiday tournaments.


This tourney will be a 1v1 playing five different maps best 3of5 each round.


Maps:

British Isles-our history

Image

13 Colonies-our beginning

Image

USA-what we have become

Image

Woodboro-celebrating in our neighborhoods-great food, family and friends

Image

Arms Race!-watching the fireworks

Image




Anyone with less than 98% taken may be left our of the tourney without a decent excuse that they will play the games without missing turns.


64 entrants
1v1, 2 player games
Seq
chained reinforcements
escalating spoils
no fog

I will use reverse set up to make the match ups-1-8 will play 16-9. Basically each round will have the lowest number playing the highest number. I will just make this list, cut it in half and reverse the higher numbers. PM me if you have questions-these will be posted each round.
There will be four brackets-East-West-North-South-Semis will pit East against West and North against South. Random.org will create the initial brackets


To sign up, just post to this thread


For this tournament premium players only as it will have five games per round

Reserves will be taken for the first round only

When I send a pm you have 48 hours to join or you are automatically forfeited. If I have time I send a reminder, but that should not be expected.

I hope this covers everything.

Sir. Ricco's Entry: Independence Day: Now and Then

Postby Sir. Ricco on Mon Jul 12, 2010 11:54 am

Independence Day: Now and Then
Brought to you by the Sir. Ricco Tournament Foundation

Details:

  • Objective: Reflect on the history of Independence Day while celebrating the event. Advance through 5 rounds of unique game play to win the tournament.
  • Number of Players: 112
  • Game Load: 1-2
  • Requirements: Two game slots open

Game Settings:

  • Map: See Below
  • Number of Players: 2, 4, 7
  • Game Type: Standard
  • Initial Troops: Automatic
  • Play Order: Sequential
  • Spoils: Escalating
  • Reinforcements: Chained
  • Fog of War: No

Game Play:
Independence Day is the most important, patriotic holiday for America. This tournament is a tribute to how it was started and how we celebrate it today.

Qualifications: Signing the Declaration of Independence
The Declaration of Independence was signed by 56 people. Although the date is disputed, the signing of the Declaration of Independence is the reason for the July 4th Celebration.
Map: USA New England (Philadelphia)
    112 players will be randomly matched against one opponent. Each pairing will play one game. The winner signs the Declaration of Independence and advances to Round 1.
Round 1: Now, Celebrating at Home
Every year, millions of Americans celebrate the 4th of July their own way.
Map: USA
    56 players will be split into 14 Divisions of 4. Each division will play 4 games. The goal is to try to collect the most fire works.
    1st place: 20 fireworks
    2nd place: 12 fireworks
    3rd place: 8 fireworks
    4th place: 6 fireworks
    The two players in each division that collect the most fireworks will advance to the next round.
Round 2: Then, Fighting the War
After the Signing of the Declaration of Independents, the American Revolutionary War went into full fury.
Map: 13 Colonies
    28 players will be split into 7 divisions of 4. Each Division will play 5 games. The goal is to free and protect five of the most important colonies from the British.
    Massachusetts
    New York
    New Jersey
    Virginia
    Pennsylvania
    A game will be played for each Colony listed. The two players with the most wins will advance to Round 3. In case of a tie, all players involved in the tie will fight a game to free and protect North Carolina from the British. The winner earns the tie breaker.
Round 3: Now, Going for the Big Boom
After celebrating at home, many Americans will go to a professional fireworks display. Some of the biggest are New York City’s and Lake Tahoe’s.
Maps: USA New England, USA West
    14 players will be split 2 divisions of 7. Each Division will play one game. The goal is to arrive first and get the best seat for the show. Each division will be at a different show.
    Show 1: New York City - USA New England
    Show 2: Lake Tahoe - USA West
    The winner of each game advances to the final round, Round 4.
Round 4: Then, Ratifying the United States Constitution
After the Treaty of Paris ended the war, America was faced with a new and greater problem, creating a new nation. In September 1786, commissioners from five states met to discuss adjustments to the Articles of Confederation. May 1787 delegates began work on the Constitution. On September 17, 1787, the Constitution was complete.
Maps: USA Southeast, USA Great Lakes, USA New England (Maps will be played for each state on the list that is on the map)
    2 players will try to get 9 states to ratify the Constitution. They will visit the 13 states in the following order.
    Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, South Carolina, New Hampshire, Virginia, New York, North Carolina, and Rhode Island
    The winner of each game will get the recognition that they were responsible for the ratification. If, after visiting all 13 states no player has 9 states, two states will be picked to be played again, one that player A has ratified and one that player B has ratified. Results from the previous battle will not be changed. So if player A wins on a state that player B has previously ratified, both get the recognition. This will continue till a player has ratified 9 states.

Here's my contribution:

(Not yet posted in create / join a tournament but will be soon - hoping to post as an 'evolving storyline' tournament ... which means, players will discover the plot as they go along and therefore wont be privvy to all of the information here, or at least until they progress through the tournament.)

Edit - now posted in the Create/Join Forum - some information held back as per the 'evolving storyline' theme. Here it is.

Chronicles of a Time Lord - Volume I

(Evolving Storyline Tournament)

Assassin / Terminator


Details:
Travelling through time-and-space in your cunningly cloaked inter-dimensional vessel, you are the custodian of all history, safeguarding against the evil manipulations of other time travellers, with the help of your cryogenically-suspended army.

Whilst passing through the year 2345, Orac, the computer of your SATKOM (Space-and-Time Kinaesthetic Operation Module), alerts you that:

"The Galactic Federation are hatching plans to send further TTTs (Time Travelling Terminators), including TOTA, into various points of the history of Planet Earth. Fearful of human's inter-stellar development and potential, they are attempting to prevent the technological and biological evolution of the American Civilisation.

The TTTs are attempting to nullify the American Civilisation both at its inception and at key transition points in its history. The Federation have identified the date of July the 4th as a weak point, hoping to catch defences off guard during celebrations of Independance Day. These attempts will be made in the years 1962, 2010, 2012, 2028, 2041 & 2044."

pity the tourneys that deserve the win don't have too many votes compared to the rest

how is white moose's tournament relevant to the independence day theme at all, other than saying it happened on 4th july? and highlanderattack's tournament seems to borrow ideas from one of the entries before his.

All those scenes are from a movie titled Independence Day which is set on July 2-4, so he wasn't just stating that it happened on the 4th.

No hint, just something that Tournaments could learn from Foundry. Of course, people can ask others to vote for them and I even if entries are anonymous then the style can still be guess but I don't think messaging/asking for votes for certain person is the problem (I need to believe that tournament organisers have more class than that). I'm not going to deny - people vote for their clanmates and friends because this is just the nature of life, not just in tournaments/CC. It's rather that there are more famous people whose name just draws votes even if the tournament isn't as great as some less famous organiser. For example, if I set up a poll asking who is better actor - Anthony Hopkins or Marko Matvere, you would vote for Hopkins without bothering to look up any movie by some random Estonian actor. Again, not saying that anonymous voting makes things fair (life's not fair) but it makes them fairer.

Edit. Forgot to congratulate the winners before. So, congrats to top 3, wish you luck on running and finishing the tournaments!
