A reserve will be put in. I have already posted on the Play-Now page looking for a reserve. Once a player decides to join, I'll immediately get him into that game. Good question :D

This goes for all players in Front 3; the missing games will begin as soon as possible.

Thanks for letting me know. Do you know if there are other tournaments that don't require me to play more than 4 games at once?

:lol: Why thank you Dukasaur!

You may be searching for the updated standings. I have not yet posted the win-loss records from Round 2. Due to the number of games, the moment I update the standings another game will have already finished. Thus, with tourneys like these I tend to have one large update once all games are finished. This also eliminates any error in accidentally counting a game twice.

BunnRee replaces inactive DogAlmighty, for the remainder of the tournament.

That fills all our unexpected absences for the round.
I sincerely appreciate your patience if your game was delayed.

Once all games are finished I'll post an official update. If you really really want to know how you stand, you can ask me and I'll let you know specifically. But a grand update will arrive for sure once all the games are done (this eliminates the majority of possible errors in updates).

April 29 Update


The majority of our second battle of the war has transpired, and thus far the Confederation (UN Security council members) has a significant lead over the Alliance (Brazilian Junta), leading by the score of 3 fronts to 1, as our new standings board below indicates.

But three of our fronts remain tied, as each side ended up winning 8 games each. Thus, according to the rules, the top player from each side will play in a 1v1 game to determine which side (Alliance or Confederation) wins. Thus, after these three tie-breaker games (1 for each front) we'll know which side wins for sure!

Game 11026226
Game 11026231
Game 11026268

You may be confused with how I rank players who have equal number of wins.


Those players who have the same number of wins are ranked by the ART: Aggregate Round Total: this means I add up the number of rounds it took for players to win all their games (so if you won 3 games in 8 rounds each, your ART would be 24r): the player with the lowest ART is ranked higher (thus, players who finish games quicker are rewarded).

May 15 Update

May 15 World War III Tournament Update

Image

Below is our updated standings.

Updated Standings Board
show: Standings

The 8 players highlighted in blue in the above standings will now take part in Medal of Honor Cup Qualifiers, as per the Rules,

the winning faction claimed victory in 4 fronts, the 8 players (two from each front) will be randomly divided into 2, 4-player standard games. The winner of each game advances to the MOH Cup.


These players are the top 2 Confederation players (ranked by wins) from those fronts in which the Confederation won.

Would you like to choose the Map AND Settings for the next round? Write and Post a Battle Scenario for Our Third Battle!

All it takes is for you to write a brief paragraph on a possible World War III scenario somehow related to the first two scenarios will suffice. Identify 2 key sides, one for the Confederation and one for the Alliance and the map and settings. Then post it on the tournament page here: viewtopic.php?f=91&t=159969&start=0

It's that simple!

We've now completed two battles, but six key events remain ahead, and each one of you has the opportunity to write history! I will now be accepting any scenario proposals for the next 7 days (until CC Time: 2012-05-22 17:00:00).

Contextual Requirements
To ensure the plot is not disjointed, I advise you make some sort of reference to the events of Brazil[/b][/color] (the UN has eliminated the military dictatorship in Brazil but there is still unrest and ecological devastation: consult the newspaper above).

You may also make reference to the workers' revolt put down in China (Battle 1).

The events in your scenario do not have to necessarily stem directly from the events in Brazil or China, but there should be some link made.

Possible Ideas to help you out:
  • Other military dictatorships arising in South America?
  • Politicians criticized for war, maybe leading to a civil war?
  • Feel free to use the newspaper to think of any ideas.

Work with these ideas or come up with something new!

General Requirements for Writing History
show: Requirements




Remember, writing history is NOT required of course, but there is a General Achievement Medal (the Nostradamus Award), which will be given to the player who has the most number of scenarios approved and implemented into the tournament by players' votes. Please consider taking part! :o :?


I'm giving all players 7 days (until CC Time: 2012-05-22 17:00:00) so that should give you plenty of time if you have an idea! And it doesn't have to be in depth at all, just something simple so we can get some community involvement in the tournament. ;)

Thanks,
James
