We're full, so I'll put you in as a reserve!

Tournament is now full, and still taking reserves of course.

Update

And we're off! First batch of games have been sent out. Hopefully we won't be needing any replacements... Link to scoreboard has been added!

Also, for transparency's sake, placing for TPA4 scoring purposes will be decided as such:
  • 1st - 8th: Winning faction, ordered by Phase II scores.
  • 9th - 40th: Remaining 4 factions, ordered by Phase I scores regardless of faction score.
  • The tiebreaker rules will be applied where relevant. Phase I tiebreaker will have the additional last determining factor: higher faction score.
  • If the tiebreaker rules cannot break the tie, players will be listed with tied placings.

Game 14383976 - Is this the first flag to be captured?
Also, question: if a player loses on Classic, then wins on their home map, does the matchup go back to Classic or does it end without a capture?

Nope, Dukasaur beat you to it :P Game 14377930. Yours is the 3rd!

Thanks for the question - it ends without a capture. Going back and forth would take forever!

Update

We're a week into the tournament now, and games are progressing nicely. The Romans have surged ahead with an early lead, having accumulated 3 flag captures thus far. The Pirates and Terracotta trail behind with 1 capture apiece, while the Knights and Samurai have yet to get on the board. It's still early in the game though, and even in the round, so these numbers could see drastic changes!

Enough games have been completed for us to have some nice statistics - because stats are always fun! So let's have a look.

  • We have 9 completed matchups, 23 currently making their flag capture attempts, and 8 still battling in no man's land.
  • Of the 9 completed matchups, 5 (55.6%) have ended in flag captures.
  • The Romans have the best winning percentage on Classic, winning 12 out of 14 (85.7%) so far. They are followed by:
    • Knights (6 of 12, 50.0%),
    • Samurai (5 of 11, 45.5%),
    • Pirates (5 of 14, 35.7%), and
    • Terracotta (4 of 13, 30.8%).

I captured one flag and failed on Feudal War to capture another. Does that not go back to a fight on Classic again? Or does it basically count as a fail for both players as both failed to capture the opponent's flag?

Yep, I answered this a while back (: The answer is the same!

Update

Round 1 has ended, save for 2 matchups which have just entered the flag capture attempt. And so the games for Round 2 have been sent out.

The scoreboard has changed up quite a bit since the last update, with the Pirates surging ahead to the top with 6 flag captures, while the Romans now trail behind them in second place with 4 flag captures. The Knights, Terracotta and Samurai follow behind with 3, 2 and 0 flag captures respectively. The remaining 2 matchups could see the Pirates extending their lead to 7 flag captures, and the Samurai possibly and hopefully getting themselves on the scoreboard with 1 capture!

In the race for the GA Medal for most flag captures, general cod currently takes the lead as the only player that managed to capture 2 flags in the first round!

Once again, let's take a look at some of the stats! Not that it actually matters at all, but it's always cool. (Stats do not include the results of the 2 ongoing matchups.)

ATTEMPTS (% win on Classic).
  1. Romans - 75.0%
  2. Knights - 56.3%
  3. Pirates - 43.8%
  4. Terracotta - 43.8%
  5. Samurai - 31.3%
CONVERSION (% win on Capture Attempts/Away Maps).
  1. Pirates - 100.0%
  2. Terracotta - 40.0%
  3. Romans - 33.3%
  4. Knights - 33.3%
  5. Samurai - 0.0%
DEFENSE (% win on Capture Defence/Home Map).
  1. Pirates - 77.8%
  2. Romans - 75.0%
  3. Samurai - 66.7%
  4. Knights - 50.0%
  5. Terracotta - 40.0%

Thanks, and sorry, I was being lazy.

I guess the defending home flag percentages aren't all that reliable since some of us haven't had to defend our flags yet?

Don't worry, I'm happy to answer all questions!

And yes, I guess you could say that. The same could be said about the capturing enemy flag percentages - not everyone has had the chance to make a flag capture, nor has everyone played on the same Away map just yet - it's probably the least reliable of the lot right now. Though like I said, they're all just for fun (:

Update

We're down to the last 4 matchups for the round, and while we wait for them to finish, let's take a look at the scoreboard so far!

The Pirates maintain their lead with 10 flag captures (with potentially 2 more), while the Romans stay in second place with 8. The Knights are still in third with 5 captures, but the surprising thing is that the Samurais have had a late surge, making up lots of ground after their poor Round 1 performance, and are now tied for third with 5 captures as well (and potentially 1 more)! Now in last place, the Terracotta have just 3 captures (with potentially 1 more).

general cod still remains in the lead for GA Medal, but he now faces some stiff competition from djelebert, as both now hold 3 flag captures apiece. It's no surprise that these players are contributing greatly to their teams as well, the Pirates and Romans respectively.

crazycolin of the Terracotta has also been replaced by kirillk after not responding to invites and PMs.

And once again, some stats! (Stats do not include the results of the 4 ongoing matchups.)

ATTEMPTS (% win on Classic).
  1. Romans - 62.5% (previously 75.0%)
  2. Knights - 59.4% (previously 56.3%)
  3. Pirates - 50.0% (previously 43.8%)
  4. Samurai - 43.8% (previously 31.3%)
  5. Terracotta - 34.4% (previously 43.8%)
CONVERSION (% win on Capture Attempts/Away Maps).
  1. Pirates - 58.8% (previously 100.0%)
  2. Romans - 40.0% (previously 33.3%)
  3. Samurai - 38.5% (previously 0.0%)
  4. Knights - 31.3% (previously 33.3%)
  5. Terracotta - 30.0% (previously 40.0%)
DEFENCE (% win on Capture Defence/Home Map).
  1. Romans - 72.7% (previously 75.0%)
  2. Pirates - 69.2% (previously 77.8%)
  3. Terracotta - 60.0% (previously 40.0%)
  4. Samurai - 55.6% (previously 66.7%)
  5. Knights - 46.7% (previously 50.0%)

Update

Sorry for the lack of updates the past week, I was away on vacation.

All matchups have progressed to the flag capture stage. We do have a problem though, as babagonosh (Pirates) and lapdog (Samurai) both seem to have left the site, but we don't have anymore reserves. I'm still attempting to find reserves, but so far to no avail. If you could refer any of your friends, that'd be great! Otherwise, I'll attempt to device a way to work around this.

Update

As I have not been able to find replacements for the players that have dropped out, the following rules have been implemented for the Pirates and Samurai:

For each round from now till the end of this phase, 1 team member will be randomly chosen to play an extra 2 matchups in their place.

The results of the matchups will count for the team as per normal, but flag captures for or against the chosen individual in these extra games will not count towards his individual score, for fairness in the GA Medal, TPA points and tiebreaker purposes.

Should any of the other team factions have dropouts, the same rules are likely to be applied. But let's hope that won't be needed!

Now, let's keep this tournament moving along!
