I think that makes a fine bookend to this line of argument. We done here? I'll probably reply if people want to continue the discussion. For me, the argument is complete. It was an important issue for me, and shouldn't really have detracted so much from the rest of the competition.

I'm a sucker for debate though.

Symmetry, how about you create a tournament so we can all have a laugh? You wouldn't even manage to make a propper OP, needless to say you'd never manage to get it running and even less would you be able to make the follow up.

Hey, I don't want to make more work for somebody, but isn't it about time we got some new maps for the token criteria? Sept 2014 was a long time ago, the last time new maps were approved. Here are some of my suggestions. Baltic States, Duck and Cover, Europa, Knights, Macedonia, Seige!, Steamworks, WWI Ottoman Empire, Yugoslavia.

Anyone else got any ideas?

If you study enough history, you will easily observe: Never surrender to a violent people, esp. to Eastern armies of Muslims or Asians. They kill most of their prisoners. Surrender to the Americans or Europeans, sure. Expect fair treatment and good food. Surrender to Japan? (Bataan). Surrender to Muslim armies (sex slaves, castration, amputation, man-rape, enslavement... see the history of Islam from Mohammed, a caravan raider, to today.)

Better to fight to the last man, even if you have to throw stones, use clever strategies and every resource available- do NOT surrender.

So, we're now almost a full year behind. A lot of the tournament writers that were helping in the beginning have dropped out, and I just can't keep up with it. Here's a list of tournaments that should have launched in the last eleven months but didn't because I couldn't keep up with writing them. If anyone wants to take a stab at any of them, that would be great. Don't worry that you don't know how to code the autotournaments; I can take care of that. I just need the composition.

  • Asiago (battle fought 15th of May, 1916, therefore the corresponding tournament should have launched 15th of May, 2016)
  • Trentino (battle fought 15th of May, 1916, therefore the corresponding tournament should have launched 15th of May, 2016)
  • Jutland (battle fought 31st of May, 1916, therefore the corresponding tournament should have launched 31st of May, 2016)
  • Lutsk (battle fought 4th of June, 1916, therefore the corresponding tournament should have launched 4th of June, 2016)
  • Khanaquin (battle fought 4th of June, 1916, therefore the corresponding {etc., etc., I think you get the pattern.})
  • First Day of the Battle of the Somme, July 1st, 1916
  • Bazentin Ridge, July 14th, 1916
  • Delville Wood, July 15th, 1916
  • Battle of Pozières, July 23rd, 1916
  • Romani, August 3rd, 1916
  • Sixth Battle of the Isonzo, August 6th, 1916
  • Gorizia, August 6th, 1916
  • Battle of Guillemont, Sept 3rd
  • Seventh Battle of the Isonzo, Sept 14th
  • Battle of Flers-Courcelette, Sept 15th
  • Eighth Isonzo, October 8th, 1916
  • Ninth Isonzo, November 1st
  • Maghdaba, December 14th
  • Second Kut, Dec. 15th
  • Opening 1917, the small but exciting Battle of Khadairi Bend, January 9th, 1917
  • Battle of Nahr-al-Kalek, February 26th, 1917
  • Fall of Baghdad, March 11th, 1917
  • Samarrah, March 13th
  • Fallujah, March 19th
  • Jebel Hamrin, March 25
  • First Gaza, March 26h
If any of the above makes your short list of "most fascinating battles of World War I", you could consider writing a tournament about it.

Re: The Great War

Postby gigi_b on Wed Mar 22, 2017 1:12 pm

I was actually thinking about how this tournament progresses after checking the scoreboard and then the lists of tournaments broken down into quarters.
The event has greatly reduced in speed of creation of tournaments while expanded in complexity for the latter tourneys issued. This said it is virtually impossible to make any significant improvements of one's related score because it became harder to win (it takes a lot longer) and there are also fewer tourneys to get into. The guys that entered right from the start and won have their positions secured.

That's some general view of the current state of events.

Now regarding your post requiring help I've actually thought about participating in organizing or at least making some suggestion about the Eastern Front, more precisely the Romanian participation of which I know a thing or two. Was actually wondering how come the Eastern front didn't get into this event since we seem to be covering some engagements that aren't so widely known. I mean everyone with some general idea about WWI history knows about Verdun, Marne, the Somme or Gallipoli, but - at least for me - I've actually learned for the first time about Kut, Hanna, Wadi or Loos and much more.
And I've also discovered a wikipedia article, more precisely this one: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_W ... _I_battles which seems to be the precise timeline of the Great War event in here.

There are 2 things that come to my mind: the list is both incomplete in main events of the WWI (I mentioned Romania's participation, but also the Brusilov offensive for example and might be more) and it's also too thorough to be covered in a casual scenario like with tourneys of CC.
And especially with the current lack of momentum, I guess it would be worth to change the approach a bit.

As I wrote in the first paragraph, I believe the issue about "competition" and scoreboard is settled...:) Now maybe it would worth to change the approach and to keep making fewer tourneys but with a wider cover with respect to WWI events (just like the later tournaments in the event). So instead of making another 5 tourneys for the Isonzos, maybe make a more elaborate tourney about "War in Italy and austrian Alps in late1916-beginning of 1917" or something of the sorts.
Or, in terms of relative articles that serve as starting point, maybe use the more generic https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_I and go into later details if it need to.

That being said I can offer my help, but I'd rather cover some aspects of significance....in the sense that even though that some engagement between 2 british gunboats and 3 turkish monitors somewhere on the Tigris at the beginning of 1917 most likely was a significant event for that time and for the participants, now 100 years away I guess it would really worth if we can go through the more general scene of the events.

-----Yes,I know, I forgot the "u" in Khanaquin. I told Duk not to fix it. I am going to give Wayward Day, and everyone else a little fact about perfection. Since this battle takes place in Persia.
-----The great rug makers of Old Persia. Would make these huge awesome rugs. Perfect until the last stitch. Yes they themselves would screw up the last stitch on purpose. Why? Because they believed the only thing in the world that was perfect. IS GOD. So for them to make a perfect rug would be an insult to God. I think a lot of know it all, nit pickers on this site. Could learn a valuable lesson from the Ancient Persians. :D ConfederateSS.out!(The Blue and Silver Rebellion)... :D
