So I came up with a new idea: How about a series of 64 tournaments, of varying format and on varying boards, each with a theme? The winner of each gets to participate in the GRAND CHAMPIONSHIP, a NCAA basketball style tournament, with predetermined settings for each matchup! Win more than one, find yourself on multiple bracket lines and more chances to win it all. The winner of tournament 1 will get first pick of the 64 slots, tournament 2 second pick, and so on. Some tournaments will have teams, some singles. Some have Fog related settings, some Spoils settings, some on certain boards, some on any board.
Info about the Grand Finale and about the Series is available here: http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=89&t=140939
This tournament (as hinted by the "time" in the title) deals with the seven maps on CC which have a specific year in their name. Players in this tournament will play one game in a group of 6 on each of the maps listed below, though the groups will not be the same for each game. All of these games will be Auto, Sequential, Escalating, Chained, Sunny. Tourney points will be awarded as follows
1st - 10 points
2nd - 7 points
3rd - 4 points
4th - 2 points
5th - 1 point
6th - 0 points
2 or more players eliminated in the same turn by the same player will be considered to be tied, and the points for their places will be added up and divided equally among all tied players. The top 6 scoring players will advance to the final. In the final, players will play each map twice, once foggy and once sunny. The same scoring rules will be applied, and the player with the most points at the end is the winner. Points from the preliminary rounds do carry over. Freemiums are welcome, as only 1-2 games will be played at a time.

Numbers next to a player are simply their order of signup. Random column is being used to make pairings. Round 7 will feature all non-clinched but still able to advance players in as few games as possible, all others will be fully random.
