TQO's Feudal Epic Triple Knockout: Quest for the Byes will be a 30-person tournament. Lose 3 games, and you're out!
Gameplay All games will be assigned each round using a random generator. There is no bracket, grouping or pooling system. Map: Feudal Epic Players: As determined (see below) Game Type: Standard Troops: Automatic Play Order: Sequential Spoils: None Reinforcements: Chained Fog: Yes Trench: No Time Limit: 50 Rounds
Format As there is only one game per player per round, freemiums are welcome. Please keep 1 slot open.
For each round, if you win your game, you receive a bye through the next round. Of all the winners in that round, if you have won your game in the fewest number of turns, you will receive a bye through the next two rounds.
For example: Round 1 will consist of 5 games of 6 players each. The player who wins his/her game in the fewest number of turns will receive a bye directly to round 4. The remaining four winners will receive a bye directly to round 3. All other players accumulate 1 loss each, and must compete in round 2.
After 3 rounds, we are guaranteed that at least 14 players will be eliminated. (Because only 16 games have been played, there will be a maximum of 16 winners).The number of players in each game in each of the subsequent rounds will be determined by the following chart.
The format for byes remains. If you win your game, you receive a one-round bye. If you win your game in the fewest number of turns, you receive a 2-round bye. However, if you are playing the only game during any round, you will only receive a one-round bye.
The rounds shall continue as more players receive their 3rd loss. The last player standing wins.
Notes 1. Please post your 'in' status. 2. I will hold spots open for 3 reserves. Reserves will take over the same "loss count" as the player they have replaced. But a player who withdraws in round 4 or later will not be replaced. 3. The foe list is ignored. You must remove any foes that you are scheduled to play in this tournament. 4. Please join all games within 48 hours or you risk being replaced. 5. Please inform me if you will not be around for any short duration of time. If the period of time is short, I may delay your start. 6. I welcome any questions by PM or in this thread. 7. Ties for the 2 round bye will be broken as follows:
