This tournament will be a 1v1 tournament on Age of Realms 3: Mayhem. It will consist of two double round robins (you play each team in your group twice), so premiums only!
As the winner of My Map, Your Settings #13, wolfpack0530 has chosen AOR3 for this tournament. All games will be 1v1, played on that map; required settings: sequential and casual. Each player will submit his or her "home settings", which consist of deployment, spoils, foggy/sunny, and reinforcements.
16 entrants split into 4 groups of 4 via random.org. Each group of 4 will play a double round robin; one game on each person's settings. No tiebreakers in the first round; anyone in the lead or tied for the lead of their group at the end of the first round will advance to the final group. The final group will be another double round robin. Standings will reset; first round scores do not carry over. If any group of 2 or more players is tied for the lead after the finals, they will play extra double round robins until the tie is broken.
In a moderately bizarre series of ties, ten of the sixteen players in this tournament have made the finals. In an attempt to keep from bombarding you with too many games at once, I'll be sending out the finals in two waves of nine games apiece. Whoever has the best record of the 18-game finals will be the winner!
