Old Post [spoiler=Format/Rules] This is not a regular format tournament. Please read and understand the insctructions before signing up. If anything is unclear, feel free to ask questions.
The premise is a war in Central-Eastern Europe where the participants will begin by getting control over one country drawn randomly out of the following list:
France, Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia (17 countries total)

There are two phases to every round in the tournament: The Declaration Phase and the Battle Phase.
Declaration Phase In each round, all remaining players will receive a PM with the current map situation and a list of the countries they control. For each country you control, you can then choose between Declaring War or Supporting a neighbouring country. Obviously, you can only declare war on enemy territories and only support neighbours you own. War declarations are sent in PM to me and must be sent within 24 hours from the moment I send the PM. Failure to state your declarations of war will result in you not being able to attack during the round. Please note that your war declarations are to be confidential. Publicly stating your war declarations during the declaration phase may result in punishment (ranging from not getting to attack to being kicked out of the tournament for repeat offenders).
If you have control over two countries that both neighbour the same enemy country, you may declare war on the enemy country with both of yours. See below in the Battle Phase for how this will be handled.
A country cannot choose to Support itself. Also, you may not choose to Support any of your countries unless you are attacking with another.
Battle Phase Games will then be made based on which countries have wars declared on them. If two players declare war on the same country, there will be a three player battle over it, etc. Whoever wins the battle gets control over the country. Losing a game means your force is eliminated, and the battle for the country will continue between the forces left contending for it. Even though you may have several forces contending for the same area, you can only use them one at a time until you either you or your opponent loses all their forces. When you no longer control any countries, you are eliminated from the tournament. Total winner is the last man standing, controlling the entire map.
Alliances NO ALLIANCES! This means no publicly stated or privately discussed alliance/bartering/non-attack agreement neither during the Declaration Phase nor during actual matchplay. While there might arise situations later on in the tournament where you consider it good strategy not to go to war with a certain player, that decision must be made entirely by yourself and you'll have to take a leap of faith that the other player have come to the same conclusion. Offenders will either be warned, miss attacks or get kicked out of the tournament depending on the severity of the offense. [/spoiler]

I'm not sure if this type of game have been done before, but if there is anything that is unclear, please ask and I'll explain more in detail. Please do not sign up unless you understand how the tournament works.

I want in but i do have a couple questions question.
In your complex example with 3 players. Players B and C combined have 3 countries and all three countries attack Germany (A). (A) has 2 countries and supports Germany with Austria, however (A)did not make an action with Germany, his other country. Why did Germany not take an action? Where (A)'s options with Germany not to attack a player of his choosing OR support any of his other bordering countries?
An example using 2 players. A-Germany and Nethrlands. B-France and Belgium
Player A attacks France with Germany and Netherlands. Player B attacks Germany with Belgium Player B supports Belgium with France.
In this scenario player I understand that there will be two battles in France and one in Germany. However because France decided to support Belgium his action is lost correct? Also because France decided to support Belgium, does this mean that because France was attacked it is automaticlly defeated?
Sorry for this being a long question, but I really do want to play this tourney, I just want to understand it first. Thanks
