So I just crowned a winner in Every Single Setting: Classic, and I found it so much fun that I'm going to do it again. However, there have been two more game modes (Manual, Nuclear) since ESS:C kicked off, so there will be some adjustments to the setup.
DISCLAIMER: This tournament will require you to play 54 games at once, up to 120 games played in the first round. Premiums ONLY.Round SetupAll games will be done in Sequential play order to keep the tournament from spiraling out of control.
Deployments will be done based on game setting, except for Round 7, where both will be in play.
Points will be assigned based on finishing position in each game. More on that in the second post.Settings BreakdownRound 14 groups of 8 players will play all possible combinations of:
Standard (Manual), Terminator (Manual), Assassin (Automatic), Doubles (Automatic), Quadruples (Automatic) game setting

Round ProgressionUnlike ESS:C, I will not be releasing every single game in one huge mass. Instead, I will start the first 54 games of each round and as games finish I will make the next game and send it out to the group. This will continue until all games have been played. To keep the spice of ESS, the first 54 games will be from all game settings in the round, evenly divided as best can be.
Additional RulesStalemateDue to the possibility of buildup games in Flat Rate and No Cards, any game lasting more than
30 rounds with more than half of the game's players will be considered over as far as the tournament is concerned. No points will be awarded in stalemate games. No games will exceed 50 rounds for any reason.
DeadlockAs a further protection against stalemates, any game that has gone 3 rounds without any territories getting conquered (nothing but deployments), will be considered a deadlock. No points are awarded for a deadlock game.
