Point Grabbers XI: The Return

Well, it's true, I couldn't give it up. With my new position here at CC I'm going to need a simple, fun, well-liked franchise to run that doesn't take a lot of my time if I'm going to stay in the tournament organizing business. How lucky for me that I already have one developed! This is the return of Point Grabbers, but it marks new ground. Future editions will occasionally feature new things like fog of war, or a particular map theme of some sort. We'll see where things go.

All players are free to join, but please note that non-premium players need to have a slot available within 72 hours of the tournament filling up. This particular series fills fast and moves quickly. All players have 72 hours to join their games before risking forfeit.

The tournament will feature 1 vs 1 games on a series of maps as the players make their way through a 16 player, single-elimination bracket. All games will be sequential with no spoils, chained reinforcements and no fog (in order to diminish the ‘first turn advantage’ spoken of throughout the forums).

Maps for this tournament are as follows:

First Round: Charleston
Second Round: Great Lakes
Semi-Finals: High Seas
Finals: USA

In the end, you don’t have much to lose by joining this tournament. At worst you lose 40-50 points (if you have an extremely high rank), and at best you break even if you win 1 or 2 games. Some players have been known to walk away from this tournament with a 100 point net gain. It’s definitely worth the risk, I promise.

Players will be seeded 1 through 16 by their score and then the highest score plays the lowest, etc.

So, join up now for a fast, furious, exciting time! Only the first 16 get in!!!
