I must say I'm having some fun on Waterloo. Especially in my triples games using the artillery to bombard everything in sight.


I think a teams waterloo tourney would be quite fun. Probably triples or doubles with 4 players but I'm just making a suggestion.


If you decide to start this tourney let me know because I'd obviously want to join.

thanks.

Okay, here is a mostly fleshed out idea that anyone is free to use. I am going into a temporary retirement as far as new tournaments is concerned, so I feel no need to keep them from everyone:

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

The Scramble 100
Idea by Optimus Prime

PREMIUM IS REQUIRED TO JOIN THIS TOURNAMENT

Introduction:
Welcome to The Scramble 100! This tournament is one that does nothing more than prove who can play the most consistently over the course of 100 games. :) There will be 30 players in the tournament and they will play 100 1 vs 1 games in a row. Each player’s record will be kept and the player with the best record at the end will be crowned champion.

Gameplay:
All games will use the following format: Sequential, Flat Rate, Adjacent, No Fog of War. Each set of games will be randomly assigned, which means that random.org’s list randomizer will take the list of participating players and randomly pair them up. Each player will start with 8 games in the first set and there will be new games on a regular basis (likely once per week).

Maps:
The games will be played on the following maps, chosen randomly throughout the tournament:

Classic
Asia
Italy
France
Alexander’s Empire
Dustbowl
Australia
Arctic
WWII Eastern Front
8 Thoughts

Standings:
The standings will be a simple list with each player and their record listed from best record to worst from top to bottom. (Easily created in Excel)

Okay, here is a mostly fleshed out idea that anyone is free to use. I am going into a temporary retirement as far as new tournaments is concerned, so I feel no need to keep them from everyone:

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

The Ultimate Terminator Tournament
Idea by Optimus Prime

PREMIUM IS REQUIRED TO JOIN THIS TOURNAMENT

Introduction:
Welcome to The Ultimate Terminator Tournament! This tournament will feature every single map that is currently available on the site. The format will be very similar to the previously seen Iron Man tournaments. There will be 25 players, with the games being randomly mixed for each map. The total number of kills will be tracked throughout the entire tournament, and the player with the highest total when the final map is complete.

Important Note:
Please only sign up for this tournament if you are willing to seriously compete all of the way through. Of course, there are extenuating circumstances from time to time, and there will be reserve players, but it will be appreciated if you are willing to play all the way through.

Game Play:
Each map will be played with 5 players, Sequential Turns, Flat Rate Cards, Unlimited Fortifications, and No Fog of War. We will start with the first map on the list and will move through them 5 at a time until we have finished the list. Given that this tournament will take a long time to finish, there will definitely be new maps added to the list as the tournament progresses. All new maps will be included in the tournament.

Scoring:
The only scoring for this tournament will be eliminations in each game. The more eliminations you make, the better. Therefore, it should prompt many occasions where players take a little more risk to gain an extra kill to improve their place in the standings.

Schedule:
There will be 5 new games to join each week. If at any time there is an excessive number of active games when the next set of games is scheduled to be started, we will delay by an extra week to let things die down for a little bit.

Standings:
The standings will be a list of players with their total number of kills/eliminations next to their names.


Players:
1.
2.
3.
4.

Here is the last one for today:

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


Free Player’s Open
Idea by Optimus Prime

ONLY NON-PREMIUM PLAYERS MAY ENTER THIS TOURNAMENT

Introduction:
Welcome to the Free Player’s Open! You may not enter if you have a premium membership. Also, if you wish to enter you must leave 1 game slot open at all time for this tournament. There will be 20 players divided into 4 four divisions of 5 players each (sorted by score at the beginning of the tournament). Each player must choose a “home map” when the sign up.

All games will use the following settings: Sequential, Escalating, Unlimited, No Fog of War

Gameplay:
Each division will play one game at a time until they have played one game on each “home” map that was chosen by players in their division. They will receive a score based upon their finishing place in the game as follows:

1st: 5 points
2nd: 4 points
3rd: 2 points
4th: 1 point
5th: 0 points

The top finisher from each division will advance to a place in the “Finalist Division.” The four finalists will play 1 game on each home map with the same scoring and the top finisher will be crowned the champion.

Schedule:
Each division will be given one game at a time to play (because the players are non-premium). When one game finishes, the next will begin immediately to decrease downtime for players eliminated early. Players should be advised that if they are eliminated early in a game that they may have to wait a little while for the next game. They should not join extra games and fill their slot, but should be ready to join on a moments notice.

Yep, that's true, and there are more ideas where these came from. They are free for anyone to take, use, and adjust as they feel inclined. Mostly trying to liven up Create/Join a bit.

Ricco, feel free to do yours exactly as you had it planned to begin with. My posting of that idea in now way forces you to do something different.

Actually, I think I got a better plan then before. If any body takes I will kill them. :wink: But its © ok. Some how I will get it so the tournament will have a total of 1000 games. 10 per person each round. After every round the top players vote off a bottom player. Humm, this could be fun. If anybody has seen NBC’s “Biggest Loser”, it will run like that.
