Conqueror of Siam [Winner: thrambone]

Postby FarangDemon on Mon May 04, 2009 4:53 am

Who will encrust his crown with the gleaming Jewel of Asia? Will the foreign devils prevail against the local despots? And who among the victorious faction will emerge from the power struggle as the undisputed Conqueror of Siam?

Background: At the end of the 19th century, the spheres of influence of the British and French colonies in Southeast Asia intersected at Siam. The French controlled Vietnam and Cambodia, while the British had encorporated Burma into British India. The real story is that King Rama V was able to preserve the sovereignty of most of Siam by ceding strategically less important areas to both powers in order to preserve the whole. (also the French decided it would be worth giving up ambitions on the rest of Thailand in order to gain Britain as an ally against Germany, but nobody talks about that reason in Siam) But how will the current defenders of Siam measure up to this great King?

OVERVIEW

There are three rounds and you need to pass certain requirements to progress. All games in tournie are sequential. Some are standard escalating, some are doubs/quads no spoils. We won't play more than two at the same time to give freemiums a chance. This is a low game-commitment tournie: 6 games in round one, 7 games in round two, 9 games in round three. For the sake of expedition, future games will be cancelled if the outcome of a round becomes certain.

POST REPLY NOW TO SIGN UP! (must have > 95% turn rate and > 50 games unless someone I trust can vouch for you)

Need 24 players + 6 reserves:

    12 players - Siam (must have Thai or Laos IP or convince me of your loyalty to Siam)
    12 players - Colonial Powers

The 12 players on each side will be subdivided into two brackets based on scores at the time of first game creation.

    Siam top 6 = Bangkok Mandala
    Siam lower 6 = Isaan Mandala
    Colonial Powers top 6 = French Indochina
    Colonial Powers lower 6 = British India

Round 1 - TOP 2 IN EACH BRACKET ADVANCE

6 games of 6-player standard, escalating, chained, no fog

Each bracket plays a game on Asia, World 2.0, Eastern Hemisphere and an additional 3 maps:

    Bangkok and Isaan Mandalas: Bamboo Jack, Mongol Empire, Poker Club
    French Indochina: France, Indochina, Europe 1914
    British India: British Isles 2, WWI Ottoman, Europe 1914

Tiebreaker settled by three additional standard esc games on the faction specific maps. 2nd tiebreaker is one game sudden death, Bamboo Jack.

Round 2 - SIAM (4 players) vs COLONIAL POWERS (4 players)

This round consists of 9 games total where Siam is represented by the top two from Bangkok and Isaan and Colonial Powers are represented by the top two from French Indochina and British India. Every player of the side that wins the most advances to the next round.

4 Games: 2 on 2 doubs, no spoils, chained, no fog

    Indochina - Bangkok Mandala vs French Indochina (COLONIAL POWERS)
    Asia - Bangkok Mandala vs British India (SIAM)
    Indochina - Isaan Mandala vs French Indochina (COLONIAL POWERS)
    Asia - Isaan Mandala vs British India (SIAM)

5 Games: quads, no spoils, chained, no fog

Siam vs Colonial Powers at:

    Bamboo Jack (SIAM)
    Eastern Hemisphere (SIAM)
    World 2.0 (SIAM)
    Asia(SIAM)
    Europe 1914

Round 3 - CONQUEROR OF SIAM (played by the 4 winners of Round 2)

The four players representing the winning side battle it out on the same maps and settings as first round (Colonials play on their combined 5 unique specialty maps plus Asia). Tiebreaker settled by best of 4 games in Poker Club (escalating if 3-way tie, no spoils if head-to-head). 2nd tiebreaker is no spoils Bamboo Jack grudge match (it will be painful but you'll feel good if you win).

ROUND 1 ROSTER and STANDINGS

I'll update this list as players respond. Once signup is complete, I'll bracket them into groups by rank and then play will begin.

I wanted to give lower ranked players a shot at making it to the next level so that's why I've divided each side into two brackets based on rank. Since you have a high rank, you'll most likely end up French colonial as you wish.

I decided to assign the high ranked to be French because the biggest threat to Thailand came from the French at that time, who were already successful at detaching Laos from Siam and had their amphibian eyes on the prize.

Thanks for joining guys... Just need 3 more Siamese and 6 more Colonial Powers to join. I think the Colonial Powers need a bit more high brass to join to be competitive. I've tried to recruit many of them directly but most have not joined. This tournie showcases some specialty maps (two I have never played myself) and will be challenging for all.
