A series of 13 tournaments that I have designed to go through American history. Each of the tournaments takes place at pivotal points in America's history (and possible future). Using the maps available here on CC, I have come up with different names of each tourney and will have a small story tidbit to accompany each one. The map that each tourney will be played on will be identified in the story tidbit by being colorized.
Each tourney takes place on a different map, relating to different times in American history. The overall objective of players in the entire series is to score kills. All tourney games for the first 12 Tournaments will be a standard Terminator. Every kill that you make in each game you play will count towards your overall kill total. The 13th Tourney will be a final championship tourney for the top 32 players with the most kills over the first 12 tourneys.
If you are terminated form your game, you are out of the tourney, but not the series. The tourneys will run for 3 rounds each. From 64-players to 16 and then a 4-player final.
You must sign up for each tourney.
For the individual that accumulates the most kills throughout the first 12 tournaments of this series a General Achievment Medal will be awarded.
Each tourney will be open to 64 players, with the 13th tournament only being the 32 top killers. The more tourneys that you enter as they become active, the better chance you have of winning and moving on to the Championship Tourney. If there happens to be a tie that results in more than 32 players, then those players who are tied with kills that result in the over 32 limit will play one or more games to determine the final entrants into the tourney. (These games will not count in the overall kill count for the series.)
In addition, as soon as each tourney is full, and game invites have been sent out, I will post the thread for the next tourney in the series, so be on the lookout for those that wish to keep playing this series.
To join, simply indicate by posting in the thread that you want in. I will respond in the thread that you are in when I sign you up. I reserve the right to refuse any player form entering, but you really had to upset me to do that.
For all the tourneys, other than the map, the game settings remain the same throughout:
4-player games Terminator Automatic Sequential Chained Foggy Escalating
There will be special rules for the Championship tourney, to be revealed when it becomes active for the top 32 players. As each tourney progresses, overall kill counts will be tabulated after each round, and tables posted. Each kill counts as 1. Whether you win the game or not if you kill a player, it will be counted. Information on the final tourney can be found here:
After Columbus discovered the Americas, he continued to make trips back and forth from Europe. Part of his exploits resulted in being given the rank of Admiral of the Ocean Sea and appointed Viceroy and Governor of all the new lands. In the year 1500 he was arrested and supplanted from these posts, but he had opened up a new avenue of trade and commerce. It soon became apparent that colonization of these lands would be pivotal in Europe. Soon, many thousands of individuals braved the long trek west in hopes of staking their claim and riches in what would soon be termed, "The New World".
