The grand final of the Original Classic map vs New Classic map has been completed...

The winner of the grand final (Game 2318556) is - Ditocoaf taking the win for the New Classic Map team, second-to-last player being ourhero16 from the Old Classic Map team.

trouptraynot began with a good drop in Australia which he quickly went to work utilising, building into strong fortifications in Australia and South America. Ditocoaf made an early play for Europe which he managed to hold after a long fight. Ourhero16 and Killmanic meanwhile built large roaming threatening armies. Later, trouptraynot found ideological agreement didn't equate to an alliance when Ourhero16 launched a devistating attack on him, while Ditocoaf and Killmanic tried to utilise the resulting chaos. trouptraynot's armies who managed to escape were eventually destroyed as were Killmanics leaving Ourhero16 and Ditocoaf to duke it out, Ditocoaf eventually winning the one month 40 round battle.

Congratulations to Ditocoaf for punching well above his weight (a private against a sergeant, lieutenant and a captain) and winning the Original Classic map vs New Classic map grand final! =D>

Thanks everyone for being involved!

The new "Classic" map caused an uproar. As grown mature adults, we all know there's only one way to resolve a disagreement...

With a bloody and horrifying war of course!!

It's sickening that the world seems headed this way without the sarcasm and joking, but I digress. Lets play - New Classic map lovers vs Old Classic map lovers! Here's how it'll work...

Simply sign up with your choice of playing for the "New Classic map lovers" or "Old Classic map lovers".

There will be 16 positions available (yep, it's a small one - I have no idea how popular or unpopular this idea will be) for a modest 4 players in 4 classic games, the winners of each game will play each other in the final.

Though I'm not setting up 'doubles', I will be putting 2 "New Classic" people and 2 "Old Classic" people in each game. If the two people of the same 'view' want to play as an organised team in the game (instead of as individuals), please feel free to... in fact, I'd encourage it - after all, Classic map honour is at stake! You are fighting for your principles to win, as well as your individual glory! Of course remember as always that alliances must be announced, just like any other Conquer Club game. As far as possible, I will match games in rank.

The map, obviously, is the "Classic" map - and yes it's the new classic map... I know, I know... and the game type will be standard sequential with flat rate cards and adjacent fortification, going for classic all round here.

There are no prizes apart from honour, so lets fight!

alright... i put my hat in for the NEW version...

EDIT: let me ask though, if you are prompting the players to kinda ally each other anyways... why not just make the games doubles #-o It would make this ALOT more efficient of a tournament, just friendly advice ;)

Three reasons, one that it's more interesting if people co-operate under their own steam (and choice) rather than being forced within a defined structure for it, two that some people are very doubles experienced and others aren't so it levels a few bumps in the playing field experience-wise, three the grand final might have three (or four!) of one particular 'side' so a doubles format would have to stop by the grand final - I'd rather have the same format all the way through.

So, to your #-o-"Gad, what an idiot" smiley, I say :roll: -"Geez, why's anyone doing something different an idiot?" Heh heh, just levelling the smiley karma :D glad to have you aboard! =D>

You seem to have covered it decently enough, but make sure it is clear that any alliances must be brought up in chat. Secret alliances of any kind are illegal. Good luck on your first tournament.

Roger that. I've amplified my comment on the matter in the original tournament description from...

"If the two people of the same 'view' want to play as an organised team in the game (instead of as individuals), I'd encourage it but that's up to them. Same rules as normal, make sure it's announced."

to...

haha, touche to you sir =D>

1) I suppose its a good justification, if you didnt have the other 2 reasons thuogh i dont think it would hold on its own :lol:
2) Also true, and while i think it may make better structure as doubles, unfortunately ive ran a couple tournaments in which doubles/quad teams were randomly assigned... nightmare! especally when you get the deadbeats involved :?
3) I can respect you wanting to keep the same format all the way through, (my opinion) is the best of your 3 respones ;) haha, but really over all it dosnt matter how you run it, as long as your smooth and promt, its all good :ugeek:

P.S. - whoever said we should have a section for those who dont care is right :lol: (woulda been me) I just lean twords new because im a fan of the foundry system

Tips ma hat to a good man! Made me smile and feel gewd! :)

Looks like you've got a lot of tournament experience, got a question for you - though I think I already know the answer. What's your thoughts on grouping according to rank? Random, in order of enrollment, grouped approx by rank, something else? I think it might be a silly question - the best player will win regardless, but thought you might have some insight?

1) I suppose its a good justification, if you didnt have the other 2 reasons thuogh i dont think it would hold on its own

I think this tournament thing might bring out the Dr Frankenstein in me... engineering social experiments for me to watch like Skinner boxes... already have a far more evil plan for my next tourny sorted out...

Deadbeats... *shudder*!

Looks like I'm late to the party, which is too bad considering I play 98% of my games on classic. :D

Count me in as the Old Classic Reserve

hard to say, it depends on the set up of the tournament... the majority of the ones i run are random 100% (through randomizer.org) but say for example... a tournament consisting of 8-way matches, and advancement based on a point scale (the place you finish) i could see some grouping... or in league events when you will be playing the same people over and over... but for the most part, i think your better off keeping it random, at least then less people can complain heh
