Conquer Club vs. Landgrab vs. Major Command

Postby Karth on Fri Nov 18, 2011 7:37 pm

I challenge Conquer Club to a 3 way duel.

Which site has the best kick ass players and teams? Let's find out.

I propose a 3 way tournament between the sites. Details to be discussed/worked out among organizers from each site but I suggest something along the following as a starting point of discussion:
Odd number of games to determine winner. Say 7 games (or whatever) between LG & CC, CC & MC, LG & MC.
Each site would host 3 games. So if it's LG vs CC it might be 3 at each (home field advantage) with the last game being played at MC (neutral)
We could set it up so that players would not have to pay at the opposing sites - do no more than the 4 games minimum at a time (you still have that right?).

Since this isn't actually a tournament, I've moved it to the Tournament General Info forum.

Shouldn't this be under "Create/Join a Tournament"?

No. The Create/Join a Tournament forum is for tournaments that have already been designed and are actively recruiting players. Discussions about how to build a tournament and see if people would be interested in a new/unique concept are posted in this forum.

Ok, thank you.

Again if anyone is interested in organizing a team from Conquer Club let me know. At LG we have 13+ players who have expressed interest in this concept and we haven't advertised it yet. The concept is currently under development and is being discussed between LG (Landgrab) & MC (MajorCommand). We are planning on starting this Tournament sometime in January/Feb.

So far some of the ground rules are (although all of this is negotiable):
1. Use common maps (i.e. Earth) and settings that are common (or as close as possible) across all sites
2. Register at other sites under the name (or as close as possible) you use at your "Home" site to avoid confusion
3. If it's not ok to say at LG, MC, or CC, it's not ok to say as a visitor somewhere else.
4. Please be respectful to our guests and when you are visiting other sites. That's not to say there can't be some friendly smack talk - but I stress the word "friendly"
5. Number of Games, Game Settings, Tournament format & other details TBD

I'm thinking of keeping the games to a minimum (no more than 4 /per player at a time so as to avoid joining other sites) and possibly having squads like Alpha, Bravo, Charlie. Squads would be smaller - perhaps 4-5 players that would be matched up against the same players at other sites for the tournament so that the players can get to know each other. A possible mix of FFA (30%) and teams (70%) games. Settings will probably be as close as we can match them up on all sites. Example: MC offers Realtime and 24 hr. timers and LG has the same so I'm thinking 24 hr timers. We are trying to figure out what their settings are and how they match up so this is a work in progress. Input from anyone at Conquer Club who is interested will be thrown into the mix.

In principle I think it's a decent idea.

Never heard of either of these other sites. Why are you excluding other Risk based sites though like Warfish?

I'm on landgrab.net but have played on conquer club years ago.

We (Landgrab) are talking to majorcommand.com about this and would like to get someone from conquerclub.com to participate as well.

Not intentionally excluding any site except pogo(dot)com as it appears not to have any real community and they may be too closely tied to the owners of Risk. Just have never heard of warfish.net (?) - have been trying to bring the page up and keep getting an error.

Other site suggestions that I have not contacted yet are:
strategygamenetwork.com - just got this info this morning
riskattack.com - not sure about this one, the interface seems very clunky

Again, this is fairly early in the concept phase and any and all input is appreciated.

id almost guarantee mc would win said games...
likely because the guys who were key in setting it up were from cc and know both sites well.

And you are never going to get the best players from either sites...well you wont from here. So the point is moot.

It should be who has the time and motivation to play some games on another website

I think the landgrab players are pretty familiar with some of the CC maps because they're straight jacked from this community without any sort of recognition.

We have about 8-14 players, as mentioned before, from all over the spectrum. I haven't advertised the idea on LG beyond posting in the forum. I'm sure i could get many more by posting the idea in some games if needed. True, you won't always get the best players, people are busy with other things but it might be interesting anyway.

I have heard now and then that it has been discovered that LG has had some maps that belong to others. LG's map system let's anyone post whatever they want. My understanding is that it was posted by an unscrupulous person. When brought to the attention of the moderators the maps were promptly removed. I have glanced over CC's 196 maps and none of them look familiar to me. However, LG has about 1700+ maps so I am not familiar with all of them. Granted alot of those 1700 are garbage but there are over 130 that are "endorsed" by the site. One of those is even mine, and I know it wasn't jacked from here.
