The (2 Player) League [New TO: barterer2002 - Page 4]

Postby BaldAdonis on Mon Dec 15, 2008 4:20 pm

This is a tournament for 2 player games designed to minimize the possible luck factors. As you might expect, this means not playing with cards, or with unlimited fortifications, and playing on maps that are large enough to give a mostly balanced drop. But even with these arrangements, the player who starts finds that he can win the majority of the time. So this tournament will dictate who begins each game, and opponents will play a series of games, each starting an equal number of times.

*edit* I've changed the name so I can run a similar tournament for 6 players.

I'll play, but I suspect I'll need help figuring out which games I'm supposed to go first in.

You're not missing a turn, you're just not taking advantage of one.

Only the listed maps will be played, at least for the initial round. They're chosen for being large, without being too heavily based on bonuses.
gameplayer wrote:Do I need to pick settings?
You don't need to now, but you will need to eventually. All the initial round games will be played on a neutral venue (ie. a random map from the list), and most likely with chained and no fog.

You will need to play 6 games at a time. If you can manage that without premium, then you're in.
