100+ games played
No whining. Life is unfair, and this tourney isn't going to be any different...Theme:
All war is hell. Unimaginable for us that have not served. Some instances stand out in history as more horrendous than most though, and the trenches of the western front must be up there among the most horrible places the human race has ever been. That anyone came out of that artillery crater with a shred of sanity is beyond belief.Structure;
You will be divided up into five groups of 6 players to play a string of 6player nuclear spoils games (artillery) on increasingly difficult settings as the tourney moves on. The first player in every group to win five games will land themselves a seat in the final. In the first round you will play three games, after that two games will be sent each round until someone in your group reaches 4 wins, after that only one game/round. more details below.Round 1:Gallipoli, Turkey, April 25th 1915, mid-day. you are part of the British landing force storming ashore. Shells are flying, and grunts are bleeding. I hope you're up for it, because this fun in the sun is only the warm up...Manoeuvrability is good, engage the enemy and take him out.

Put a bandage on that arm, and dig that foxhole a little deeper, The sun is fading and the Turks are counter attacking! Will you live to see morning?

Terminator, Seq, Nuclear, adjacent, Foggy, non-Trench, 30 round limitRound 3: (and onwards)Peronne, France, January 1917. After spending some time in a military hospital for wounds sustained on the eastern front you are shipped off to your next holiday destination, the trenches of the western front. Unfortunately you missed out on the battle of the Somme, but put that British sunny disposition to work, with 57,000 spare foxholes, you don't need to dig your own.
But as you reflect over the fact that the German artillery doesn't seem to be getting any less accurate, the rats any friendlier, the food any more plentiful, nor the mud any more confortable...

two games will be sent per round until someone in your group reaches 4 wins, after that 1 game per round until someone reaches 5 wins and thus a seat in the final, at which point the rest of the group is eliminated.FINAL
Western Front, late 1917, exact location unknown.You are cold, oh so cold, hungry, disorientated. The mud you once despised is frozen rock solid, your comrades gone, even the rats seem to have fled. You've got no food, and no ammunition, and the snow just won't stop falling, nor the German shells for that matter... you hear footsteps and grip your bayonet harder.
You made it to the final, congratulations. Welcome to hell. It's raining nukes as usual, you can't see a thing, manoeuvrability is minimal, and four of CC's finest are out there in the fog with bayonets looking for your exposed back... Kill or be killed, last man standing gets a shiny medal, gl.
