As some may have seen, I have begun a series of tourneys called An American Odyssey, in which we will take a travel through American History and possible future. This thread is information regarding the Championship and final tourney in the series. The name of this specific tourney is: The Final Frontier.
Here is a listing of the 12 tourneys that will result in our field of 32 final players for this Championship. 1. Columbus 2. Colonization 3. Independence 4. Manifest Destiny 5. Civil War 6. United States 7. Awakening the Sleeping Giant 8. Battling the Japanese 9. Warring in Europe 10. Race to the Moon 11. The Cold War 12. Devastation
Throughout these 12 tourneys, I will be keeping track of all players' kills, regardless of game or tourney wins. The final field in this tourney will be 32, and those 32 will be determined by the number of kills that they make in the series.
Although the game settings will be the same for the Championship as in the other 12, the rules slightly differ for it. The map will be Solar System.
What differs here is that there will be 32 initial players vs. 64. Players will be set up in groups of 4 but will play the following:
The WINNER OF THE SERIES will be the player with the MOST OVERALL KILLS in the series after the final game in the final round. I have designed this in hopes of having a clear winner by the end. In the event of a tie exists between individuals after the final game, a single game between those tied will be played and the winner will take it all.
Below is the current standings for the top 32 players, which will be updated following each tourney. Remember, all kills in each tourney are added together for your overall kills total. In case of a tie resulting in a field of more than 32, 1 or more games will be played to reduce the field to 32. These games will not count towards the kill total since it is a special game. This list includes only kills from completed tournaments, not those still active.
Fuzzy, I am a bit confused by this as I have eliminated well more than 2 people so far. In fact I believe I should be in the 5-7 range. Is it possible I am understanding the term "kill" incorrectly? Is a kill each individual that you personally eliminate? If so than maybe my total is incorrect? Sorry to be that guy but need a little clarification.

The tourney kills are those you specifically take out in a single game. Those kills can be from 1-3 per game, and up to 9 in a tourney.
Just thought I'd mention this: I think I've only signed up for one or two of these. Fact is I love the theme; I love most historical themes in general. I just really hate 3- and 4- player games...
If you do another one like this, could you include some tourneys in the series with 6- or 7- player games?

this one is a GF... not one you can simply join. Have to join the regular tourneys that are used for kills to qualify for this one. The last one is currently in sign-ups and is on the USApocalypse map.
You currently have a spot in this final, but that may change with 2 to go.

For the first time in the tourney series we have an actual field of 32 players with no ties for the last spots. We still have 2 tournaments to finish. One active, the other in signups. I am currently in the process of updating the list of 32 players.
In the event that players decline to join the GF, I will move down the list of players who were eliminated last in the playoff game, then move down the list of players with the most kills, and randomly pull a name if it comes to it.
