Google Sheet Scorecard and Information
Challonge.com


Alright everyone, it's time to decide what country shall hold the title of the best in the Conquer Club world!

Basic Structure
This tournament will be a team event and played on the World 2.1 map with various settings (including escalating, chained; no spoils, adjacent; nuclear, parachute).
There will be no multi-team games. All will be one team vs another to ensure there is no teaming up.
All games will be fog to discourage outside coaching and the 12hr fog of war rule will be in effect. This rule just states that the starting team for each game, must allow 12 hours for the other team to grab a snap if they'd like. Turns may be taken sooner if the other team announces in game chat that they have their snap.

Setup
  • Each team should be composed of a minimum of 8 players and a maximum of 12. FREEMIUM are welcome so long as they ensure to keep one spot dedicated to this event. Team roster to be "LOCKED" at tournament start and for the remainder of the tournament.

    (Tournament Organizers should be made aware if any issue arises as soon as possible...we understand real life can screw up plans sometimes.)
    A team can have a few reserves, however a reserve player cannot be used for another country.

  • Round Robin format.
    Each team will face each other playing World 2.1 map and using the following game type; 2 Doubles, 2 Triples, 2 Quads.

  • Settings will vary from one game type to another, detailed below, but the entire event will use Sequential, Automatic, Fog, 20 Round Limit and 24 hour turn time for all games:

    Doubles #1 - No Spoils, Adjacent & Trench
    Doubles #2 - No Spoils, Adjacent
    Triples #1 - Nuclear & Parachute
    Triples #2 - Flat Rate & Parachute
    Quads #1 - Escalating & Chained
    Quads #2 - Escalating & Chained

Score System
  • Win a Doubles: 1 pt
  • Win a Triples: 2 pts
  • Win a Quads: 3 pts
  • Win all 6 games: 2 pts added
Top 4 qualify for the 1/2 Final, 1st will play 4th, 2nd will play 3rd.
If a team ties than the face off from the Round Robin will determine who takes the spot, if still a tie than the amount of rounds will be used. Same rules apply if multiple teams are tied.

Special Conditions
  • 12 Hour Fog rule is in effect during the entire tournament. If any violation occurs, we expect the case to be solved between the teams and with an announcement in game chat (usually a copy/paste of the game log should suffice); make sure you mention what territory would have been visible as well.
    Tournament Organizers will not enforce the rule unless a case can't be resolved between the 2 teams. If no resolution can be made, then it could result in a complete rematch or a forfeit for this match only.
  • A player from a team should be used in at least one game per match and in a maximum of 3. In order to win a prize detailed below, a player must be used in at least 14 rounds of the 17.
    The Team designated Captain will ensure the above conditions are respected to ensure a fair competition.

Team Info
  • Players may join the country of his/her choice.
  • If needed, Team UN (United Nations) will be created and made up of players from various regions; so don't be discouraged if you are somewhere that does not have a large CC membership.
  • If there are enough interested members for a particular country/region, it is acceptable to have more than one team representing said region, i.e. "USA I, USA II", or "UN I, UN II", so on and so forth.

Prizes ("per Team member")

WINNER: Image + 1xImage + 1x Image + 1x Image

RUNNER UP: 3x Image

3RD PLACE: 1x Image + 1x Image

4TH PLACE: 1x Image

Please say "I'm in" and for what country you wish to play for. Thanks! We think this should be a lot of fun once it gets going.

At least you forgot some ;)

You should be more specific about the format and what games are played. There are 12 players per team but we fight vs 2 opponent?
Also the scoring system must be told.
I'm not sure it's clear enough for all. ;)

You should start sorting all countries by continent then by foreign countries. I mean Ireland should go next to UK /Sweden, Danemark should go one after another......


Also 12 players per country is too high I think. Why this ammount of players, I presume only a few countries will be able to show 12 players! So you won't have a world cup, but a continent cup. The aim of the tournament is to represent your country, if too many people have to join another country because of low ammount of player, it won't be same fun.

Things definitely need to be worked out, I agree there. We're shooting for a start date of the 2nd week in December so this is all kind of preliminary as we gather information on who is interested, etc. Yes, we may have to do smaller teams here so more countries can be represented.

Basically, what we're thinking is that each round one team will fight two opponents. i.e. Team A vs Team B; Team A vs Team C; Team B vs Team C; Team D vs Team E; Team D vs Team F; Team E vs Team F and so on
Each match up would be 3 games. Let's say we had 10 people per team, we could do 2 trips and 1 quad per match and everyone can then be utilized in one game, meaning only two games per person per round. The placement of the players would be determined by the team captain. Some people hate playing escalating, so obviously those people would be on the map with the other settings.

I know that a lot of things need to be made much clearer here. We're working on it.

You have to wait 12 hours before you play a fog game. So the opponent has 12 hours to see or snapshot the game. ;)


Let's say we had 10 people per team, we could do 2 trips and 1 quad per match and everyone can then be utilized in one game, meaning only two games per person per round.

If you have 10 players for 2 triple and a quad, every player play only 1 game per round, no more.
If you want to play 1 quad and 2 triples (1game mini 2 max per player) a minimum of 6 players is required.

Some people hate playing escalating, so obviously those people would be on the map with the other settings.

So you have in mind to have different settings on triple and quad? right?

Basically, what we're thinking is that each round one team will fight two opponents. i.e. Team A vs Team B; Team A vs Team C; Team B vs Team C; Team D vs Team E; Team D vs Team F; Team E vs Team F and so on

Ok and after each round, some teams are eliminated, due to scoring. you have to think you'll need always a multiple of 3 teams (3-6-9-12...) to work it out.
WIth 10 players per team, I presume you won't have more than 10 teams in total.
If so you could organize a round robin (every team play each other), with a same kind of scoring system. instead a system of round elimination.
If you go for smaller team, you will have lot more teams.
Just advices, good luck in organizing. ;)

Having a large player pool is not a bad thing. As smurf points out, not all settings suit certain players. Furthermore (and this is important) you cannot choose your countrymen, so what happens if you get a bit of a loony in your squad? Nice to have reserves who can replace that player. Also people drop out or become unavailable. It also makes the Captain's job a bit more worthwhile if he/she has a decent player pool to choose from.

I'd agree that 12 players is probably too many though, eight being a better number, but that's just an opinion. These guys have come up with a fun-sounding tourney which may become an annual fixture on CC. I'm sure they know what they're doing.

We are working all of these things out now and please consider the OP still somewhat "under construction". This has picked up steam rather quickly and though I knew this had the potential of being popular as soon as zeus presented me with his idea, it's still taken me a bit by surprise how quickly the responses have been coming in. This is my and zeus' first time hosting a tournament so please be patient with us to start. All of the advice is much appreciated, but we'd prefer any further issues be directed to us via PM so as to save this forum for mostly people stating whether they would like to participate and for what country. Thanks!

I have to say i think 12 player teams is very ambitious. At the moment I have 3 confirmed plus myself.
I have four more that might be interested if the game count is low enough.

Personally, I would say 8-player teams playing 2 or 4 active quads games at a time would be a good limit. Meaning that each player is in 1 or 2 active games at a time. For now, I will tell the maybes that the game count is 1 and see if I can get a 10 player team together as you suggested...

Also, can you confirm that the stupid 'no forts' setting will not be used?
And there will be no trench either? Because obviously that would make the games last much longer.

I'll play for Norway if needed (or wanted!)

Bad Dice Clause: If a team feels the game was lost due to dice and not superior strategy, dice stats must be posted in game chat and the game will be reviewed by groovysmurf, zeus111 and all team captains. The game will be recreated if the majority votes that the dice were biased. This rule is to ensure the utmost fair level of play.


That's an... interesting approach. Not sure I really like it, though.
