Player lists, game lists, scoreboards, etc., are in POST TWO below this one.
Nostalgia time! I thought it would be fun to remember one of the great TV comedies of all time while playing CC, so here is what I came up with.
There are three CC maps that explicitly name Cincinnati as a territory: Great Lakes, USA Great Lakes, and Rail USA. This tournament will test your abilities on these maps using a variety of scenarios and settings. 32 players -- Premium Only.
When you sign up, indicate which of the three maps you prefer. There will be four groups of eight players. Each group will have one of the three maps as a primary map, but you will also need to play a few games on the other two. You are not guaranteed to get in the group you want, although I will of course give people their preference as much as possible, starting with the principle of first come first served. The fourth group will take up the overflow. Its primary map will be that map chosen by the most people who didn't get into their first choice. You MUST indicate a preference, even if you don't really care which one you end up with.
Please also indicate your choice of spoils, reinforcement, and fog for the 1v1 phases, although the multiplayer phases will use predetermined settings as indicated below. All games will be Automatic Sequential 24-hour. Other setting vary as indicated.
This is technically a mixed tournament, although there are more 1v1 games than multiplayer games. Points scored in phases marked as (bonus) will count toward your eventual victory, but NOT toward calculating eliminations. When a phase is not needed for eliminations to occur, I will not necessarily wait for games to finish before starting the next phase.

Educated people handle ideas more complex than this all the time. We have a more complicated understanding of football than we do genetics and evolution. Nobody thinks just the quarterback wins the game.
