You can indeed pre-register for the next Conquer Cup, by either visiting the Conquer Cup and clicking on the 'Reserve your spot in advance' link, or visiting this one this link.

How were 3 people eliminated in round one? That's what the stats on the "Conquer Cup" page say

The eliminated in Round 1, are people that will eventually be slotted into the Second Chance Round. The eliminated thereafter, however, truly are eliminated!

Would it be possible to program the conquer cup so that you don't end up with the same players in round 2 as in round 1? I don't want to lose two games in a row to the same noob.

I love it. A cook, a private, and a Sarg. All play like cooks, missing bonuses kills and leaving borders and acting like its a terminator game killing the only major.

-53 points. Thanks, but I may end up saving the $5 and buying some beer. At least that leaves me happy & satisfied in the end.

Minor bug... If you win your round 1 game it says "You are waiting to advance to round 2" when it should really be round 3.

But we can't change things in the middle of a cup so the "no account sitting" rule will remain for the rest of Conquer Cup III. We feel that we are enforcing this rule as best as is reasonable. If you don't agree with how it is enforced, please rest assured that everyone who has been told to stop sitting has stopped, there have been no reports of actual cheating or abuse beyond errant sitting, and this will not even be an issue in the future.

I would really appreciate a comment on whether or not this is possible/will be considered. It will influence my decision as to whether or not to buy into CC IV and beyond. Thanks!

For now, I think we like the re-match aspect of the Second Chance Round 2, but for future Cups another random draw be used. We are also exploring alternative formats, where there may be no chance of rematches since there may be no or a different type of Second Chance round.

Ahoy Everyone!

As mentioned on the Conquer Cup page, 50 randomly selected players that did not make it to Round 5, will receive 500 Conquer Credits which can be redeemed for entry into any future Conquer Cup.

You can expect to receive your prize in the next few hours! Check your Conquer Credits page, and you should see you have been credited with 500 credits. You will also get a PM notification from me as well!




    So without further ado...the Consolation Prize Winners!

    Note: The list is in alphabetical order. Remember, you can always use your browser's Find/Search box via "CTRL F" to look for your username quickly!

See you there!

Is it possible someone who is randomly drawn for consolation prize, to be redrawn for consolation prize the next time? Or are their names removed and it's only for paid entries to be randomly drawn?

IcePack

No finagling with the names is done. So all participants that haven't made it to the specified Round are eligible to be drawn! It is all random.
