1v1 gameplay with manual settings is a nightmare. 2 rounds and it's over. Points trap if I ever saw one.
Can you change the victory conditions to require holding at least one group? Or the Finals for two rounds?

Unless, of course, this is a points free-for-all preying on unsuspecting players?

I think the xml needs fixing again. I just read this via BOB in someone's game:

all teams in Qualifier 6 (1) all teams in Group D and Group D Winner (3) 3 teams in Group D and Group D Winner (2) 3 teams in Group D and Group D Winner (2) 3 teams in Group D and Group D Winner (2)

Sorry, but that's a little ridiculous. The map says:

Winner and all teams in the same group = +3
Winner and any 3 teams in the same group = +2

You shouldn't be getting +9 for all of those. Having all teams should override having 3 teams, and should definitely not be all 3 combinations of 3 different teams. The map says you get +2 or +3, not a +9 for having them all.

I'm working to get this fixed, thanks Night Strike. Sorry all for the error.

Is there any chance we could make either of the tournaments bigger? Both of them are currently full and some people (me) haven't been able to sign up for either of them. :/

Okay, Night Strike, I've investigated the issue, and I can't find anything wrong - the XML checks out as well as multiple game logs. Winner and all teams in the same group overrides Winner and 3 teams in the same group and same for the runners-up, as coded. If you find a game log to the contrary please PM the game number to me.

I've restructured/reorganized the continents in the XML, so hopefully that will fix your BOB issue. In addition, I've added a max="2" element to the starting positions to balance out 1v1s. Sam has sent the files to lack, so with an luck, it'll be live soon :)
