DKs Best of 2011 III - Nuclear This is the third in a short series of five tournaments celebrating my favourite maps of 2011. The term "Best of" is highly subjective, of course. I offer no warranty that these maps are the "best" by any measurement other than my personal opinion. This tournament will feature all these maps with Nuclear spoils. (The first tournament in this series used No Spoils, the second used Flat Rate. This one is third is Nuclear, the fourth will run Escalating, and the last one will feature randomized spoils.)
Eligibility: To play in this tournament, you must be premium, have a turns-taken record of 98% or better, at least 100 completed games, and be at least a PFC on sign-up.
Procedure:The format of this tourney will be familiar to anyone who has played in my "Nuclear War" series. In each tourney in this series, the first nine phases will consist of multiplayer Standard games. In each of these phases, only the first player eliminated from each game is eliminated from the tournament. All others will continue to the next phase. As soon as all games in a phase have had one player eliminated, I will begin the next phase with the survivors. Winning these games will not influence the course of the tournament; only that first elimination is significant.
It’s not perhaps a sentiment one has too often in life, but it can be said without hesitation that the past year or so has been a good one for popular accounts of the lives of 17th-century English polymaths.
