Welcome to the Choice Royale, where you together as the players of this tournament will determine how these matches will be played. It will also allow you to try out rule sets and maps you've never tried before, as well as see what everyone else likes.

Format Of The Tournament

The tournament will be split up into the regular season and the finals.

During the regular season, 28 rounds will be played, with players being randomly split up into 7 groups of 4 for each round. After each round, you will acquire points. 4 points will go to 1st place, 3 points will go to 2nd place, 2 points will go to 3rd place, and 1 point will go to 4th place.

At the end of the regular season, the players will then be seeded from 1st place to 28th place. The follow criteria, in order, will be used for seeding: 1)Number of points, 2)Number of 1st place wins, 3)Number of 2nd places, and 4)Number of 3rd places. In the event that after all criteria are compared and two or more players are still tied for a seed, they will remain tied unless their seeding being different is critical to the tournament. If their seeding absolutely needs to be different, then additional criteria will be applied. This additional criteria will be decided on by myself alone only if necessary, however, I do not believe it will be necessary. The top 4 seeds will advance to the finals.

In the finals, 5 matches will be played by the four finalists. Scoring will remain the same, except all scores from the main season will be cleared. At the end of the 5 matches, the finalist with the most points will be crowned winner. If at the end of five matches, two or more finalists are tied for the highest score, an additional match between finalists will commence. Additional matches will then be added for as long as two or more finalists are tied for the highest score.

Match Settings and Sign-Ups

In this tournament, you will decide on the majority of the matches' settings. At sign-up, each player will be required to provide the following settings: Map, Initial Troop Deployment, Play Order, Spoils, Reinforcements, and Fog of War.
The following settings will be set by me and cannot and will not be changed during the tournament: 4-Player Matches, Standard Games, No Round Limit, and 24 Hour Round Length. ANY ENTRY REQUESTS THAT DO NOT HAVE THE REQUIRED SETTINGS WILL BE REJECTED! In addition, beta and seasonal maps will not be permitted either.

During the regular season, each round will be played with the settings of the corresponding player by order of sign-up. For example, if the 3rd player to sign up wanted the settings Classic, Manual, Sequential, Escalating, Chained, and No Fog of War, then Round 3 would be played using those settings.

In the finals, match 1 will be played using the settings of Seed 1, match 2 using Seed 2's settings, and so on up to Round 5. During these 4 matches, the 24 non-finalists will vote on the settings to be used for the 5th finals match. They will be used in the 5th match, obviously, but they will also be used for all additional rounds of the finals as well.

Dropouts and Reserves

If you do not ever miss invitations for tournaments and are not a reserve, you can ignore this section.

For the purpose of this tournament, a dropout is someone who joined this tournament but is not longer playing.

While I like to show leniency with people missing invitations, I also realize that this can cause stalling and laziness. Therefore, I am implementing a strike system(sort of like baseball). If you miss an invitation, I will send another, but you will get a strike. This strike will wear off 4 rounds after you gained it. However, if you earn 3 strikes at any one point, you will be considered a dropout and will be replaced by a reserve.

To prevent help abuse of the system, if you should earn 8 strikes, including strikes that have worn off, you will be marked a dropout and replaced with a reserve as well.

Strikes will not be publicly visible, but are available for any player upon request.

For reserves, when you replace a dropout, you will inherit the record and settings of the dropout you are replacing. Therefore, if it is clear that you will without a doubt be added as a reserve, you do not need to provide your own settings. You will also be subject to the strike system above, although you will obviously start with 0 strikes.

The above system will apply to the regular season only. If I have problems with a finalist, which I doubt I will, I will use different measures at my discretion.

Freemiums

Freemiums will be allowed to play as long as you keep one slot open for the tournament for the duration of your participation in the tournament. Only one round will take place at one time both to allow freemiums to play and to allow me to better keep track of the tournament.

Just a quick little reminder to everyone that I do need all the settings asked for. That includes initial troop deployment. In addition, round limit is set to none for all matches in this tournament. It is not a setting you are responsible for. I do not know why above entries included it, but don't.

Thanks for the add! Excited about the tourney. Just a note, I noticed in your "players" drop down menu you have my reinforcements setting recorded incorrectly. I was hoping for Chained instead of Unlimited. Thanks!

#1, you are missing a map.
#2, normally, I would expect you to watch the tournament post. The tournament is usually marked full either when I have reached my maximum time to recruit players(30 days from the original posting) or when I've filled the tournament and have gotten enough reserves to have a safe cushion, in this case 4. The tournament will then start 1-3 days later, depending on how long it takes for me to receive tournament permissions. However, given that you asked, I would be willing to PM you a warning when it gets close to starting if you wish.
