Old topic: viewtopic.php?t=146188
I am taking over this tourney. I will be reviewing everything and making notes here. The old topic can be found at the link above. Today is 8/8 and I will be sending out games tonight.
Alright, here is the rundown of the tourney=Rounds:
This tourney will consist of four rounds, each round will consist of 5 weeks, and each week I will be making 160 games, each with a random map of my choice and random settings of my choice, all of these things are going to be randomized via Random.org, with the help of an excel spreadsheet.
Each week, a player MUST join at least one game. The maximum number of games a player can join each week is 5 games. Failure to meet these requirements will result in point loss, which will be explained a few lines down in this post
At the start of each new week, I will go back to the previous week and delete all the games that has 0 players in it. I will go back TWO weeks and delete all games with 0 or 1 player left in it. This means that if you join a game, you a guaranteed to have two weeks to get it filled. Edit--you will have one week only to join games--I will check on Sunday night for any games that have not been filled and send a pm to the players that have not been filled by an opponent--it will be your responsibility to find an opponent --I do suggest getting in games earlier than Sunday--Each Monday I will make new games.
--If time permits I will send a reminder on Saturday as well.
At the start of each new week, I will send out a PM to all players with the password for that week.**REQUIREMENTS FOR EACH ROUND
Each week, you are only allowed to play in a MAXIMUM of 5 games. Why? This is so that one player does not join every single game, and another player join every single game, and having that round consist of two people playing.
And look how many games I am letting you join... 5 is plenty! (5 games max times 5 weeks per round equals 25 games per round)2.
You must play a MINIMUM of 1 games per week. This is so that I don't have that one player who doesn't join any games until the last few weeks of the tourny
It also encourages you to stay more active throughout the tourny!3.
HAVE FUN!!! WARNING
: Failure to play in 1 game each week will deduct 2 wins from your score
, for each game you do not play. Failure to comply with playing a Max of 5 games will deduct 2 wins from your score, for each game that you play over 5
And remember! Just because you join a game DOES NOT mean that game will start! It is very possible that you may join, lets say a hive game with adj forts. Well, there is a good chance no-one will join to play against you, and if that happens, you need to be aware.. --again this means you are responsible for joining games that startHow points will be awarded:
I will take your number of GAMES WON and multiply it by the PERCENT WON. Remember, for every game that you play above 5 games, or below 1 game, I am deducting 2 games from your games won category.. so playing those extra games will only hurt you in the end! [NOTE
: I will be taking your score at the END of week 20, not each week, or each round. Points will be calculated based on all your games as a whole, NOT as each week, or as each round, individually.]
General Achievement Medal:
Whoever has the most games played will receive a GA medal!! If there happens to be a tie between two players, a 1v1 random map 5 game series will be played! A tie between three or more players will result in a round robin or other formatted style 1v1 competition for the medal.
General Achievement Medal # 2:
Whoever has the highest win percentage will receive a GA medal!
((Estimated end-date: Late October/Early November))[/quote]--I estimate with the month plus delay that this will end sometime in the new year but we shall see how things go
I have made some edits to this tourney just to make things clear. The same scoring and rules apply. The only difference is that games will be available for one week, and not two weeks. Basically you have Monday through Sunday to join games that start. You will get a reminder on Sunday and I will keep games up until the new week starts on Monday.
