Wait a minute, 640 / 5 = 128 winners R1
(640 - 128) / 4 = 128 R2
(128 + 128) / 4 = 64
64 / 4 = 16
16 / 4 = 4
4 / 4 = 1

....nevermind. it works out. Not that I ever doubted you, lacky. Never!

Is it the norm for players to miss their 1st turns in a paid tournament? Conquer Cup II. (just) Seems kind of like deadbeating. 10554460
There's 1 already and a possible 2nd about to happen(?). (and I played first)
Should I miss my 2nd turn to even things out?
Maybe it's just me. :?

It's probably because people pre-registered for the tournament but then left the site. And then they must have decided not to return when they received the email that the game had started.

Yep. Now 2 or 3 people have missed turns .. myself being the 1st one to play. Game 10554460
So now they get deferred troops, and firepower if/when they do decide to jump back in?
If they miss a 2nd turn, then it's 6 deferred? Ha! I could've played in a public game to see this happen.
Is this "Fair Play" for a "Paid Tournament?"

Or, you can weaken them if you think they'll come back, or ignore then if you think they won't.

This is my first conquer cup game ever. It is NOT a speed game. I'm confused, hence my name. :P I've two questions . Are you allowed to skip turns in order to "pile up" troops for disbursement ? Also are treaties allowed in conquer cup tournaments?

You are correct, the Conquer Cup is not a speed tournament. From time to time, community-run tournaments may be speed tournaments, but the Conquer Cup for the foreseeable future won't be!

While missing turns isn't against the rule, you may put yourself at a disadvantage by not taking your turns, and you may also receive poor ratings from your opponents.

Also are treaties allowed in conquer cup tournaments?
Diplomacy is allowed, as long as it occurs in game chat and not via any other communication channels. :)

Anyone know what is going on with the round 2 games? I can't see the map and there is a 5th nonexistent player.
