I will be picking up and seeing this tournament to it's completion at shaneback's request as he has not been able to devote the time to.
Travel By Rail!
This one's for all you active quads rail fans out there... wait a second... there aren't a whole lot of people who fit that description, are there?
8 teams playing 7 rounds in a round robin format.
In each round, you will face a different team on the following four maps:
Rail Africa, Rail Australia, Rail Europe, and Rail USA.
You will be playing four maps at a time over 7 rounds, which means you'll play 28 games overall (4*7=28... you're welcome)
You will be playing on slightly different settings over the course of 7 rounds, although some repeat; see below for details.
Round 1: No Spoils, Chained, No Fog
Round 2: Escalating, Adjacent, Foggy
Round 3: No Spoils, Chained, Foggy
Round 4: Escalating, Chained, No Fog
Round 5: No Spoils, Adjacent, Foggy
Round 6: Escalating, Chained, Foggy
Round 7: No Spoils, Adjacent No Fog
If 2 teams are tied at the end of of the tournament, we will have a Tiebreaker!
1 game on each of the 4 maps with Escalating, Unlimited, Foggy
For the 5th game, we will use random.org to decide which of the 4 maps we use.
Settings for 5th game: Esc, Adjacent, No Fog
If more than 2 teams are tied we're fucked. Another Round Robin? Or one team gets bye?
