Point Grabbers VI Tournament

Alright folks, are you ready for the sixth installment in the Point Grabbers series of tournaments? The first 16 players to sign up are in. I'll accept up to 4 reserves just in case someone drops out or does not show for their first game.

I have also mixed up the maps a little to give us a bit of new flavor this time around (see below). I have also automatically included the current reigning champion, rebelman, so that he may have the chance to defend his crown.

This tournament will feature 1 vs. 1 games with Flat Rate Cards and Chained fortifications (in order to eliminate the 'first turn' advantage so thoroughly discussed in the forums).

First Round: USA, Flat Rate, Chained
Second Round: Classic, Flat Rate, Chained
Semi-finals: Portugal, Flat Rate, Chained
Finals: South America, Flat Rate, Chained


First round play will be seeded 1 through 16 based upon current score at the time registration is full. You must have a point total of at least 700 points at the time of sign-up to participate. PM's will be sent to all players announcing their games when play is ready to begin. All players will have 48 hours from the time a PM is sent to enter their game.

Any players may join, premium or non-premium however, play will be scheduled to start no later than 72 hours following the completion of registration (possibly sooner) so any non-premium player will need to have one open slot by then.

Reserve players will be accepted in case of anyone taking more than 48 hours to join their appointed game.

The point of this tournament is to give some lower ranked players the chance to prove their skill and grab a few points from others to try and gain some respect. Because it is single elimination you really will have to be good to win and if you do, nobody can claim you won't deserve the points you earned.

Think about it, at worst you lose 20-25 points, at best you walk away with something like 80-100 added to your score. It seems like a good idea to me!

1. rebelman
2. Night Strike
