However i finally decided to join the 3rd one just to say i did it. Well just as i figured i was basically taken out of the games due to noobs going for bonuses when the cards were worth WAAAAAYYYYY more than the bonuses, i tried moving my troops out before they killed themselves and myself at the same time. Even tried talking to them in the chat before they did it... to no avail. Well this happened in both games.
turns out i won one of the free entries into the Conqueror's Cup IV and my first game finished with the EXACT same result. ....
My game had the trifecta of a bonus monkey, a deadbeat and that guy who moves waaayyyy to early and sets someone else (in this case the bonus monkey) up to win the game. Fun times.
I didn't even realize it until I was automatically joined into a "Round 2" game and had to come here to figure out what had happened then went back and realized I had lost Round 1.
My experience pretty much, except minus the deadbeat.

how about making the next one an Assassin tourney. 640 players
Round 1 128 5-player games. winner advances to round 3, losers to round 2
Round 2 128 4-player games. winner advances to round 3, losers eliminated
Rounds 3 to 5 4-player games, winner advances to next round, losers eliminated
Final A 4-player game.
6 rounds of action with 2nd chances available to 1st round losers
Not a bad idea, but I don't know that there are enough people that would want to play in an Assassin tourney.
I think it's very much worth a shot.
