Re: Conquer Cup III

Postby lackattack on Wed May 16, 2012 10:00 am

After discussing the Conquer Cup "no account sitting" rule with my fellow admins, we agreed that it is causing more problems than it solves. We are going to scrap this rule for all future Conquer Cups, and deal with any real abuse if it happens.

But we can't change things in the middle of a cup so the "no account sitting" rule will remain for the rest of Conquer Cup III. We feel that we are enforcing this rule as best as is reasonable. If you don't agree with how it is enforced, please rest assured that everyone who has been told to stop sitting has stopped, there have been no reports of actual cheating or abuse beyond errant sitting, and this will not even be an issue in the future.

Seems to me professionals should be running such a small tourney :D

We appreciate the update. :D When can we start buying in to CCIV?

How were 3 people eliminated in round one? That's what the stats on the "Conquer Cup" page say

You can indeed pre-register for the next Conquer Cup, by either visiting the Conquer Cup and clicking on the 'Reserve your spot in advance' link, or visiting this one this link.

The eliminated in Round 1, are people that will eventually be slotted into the Second Chance Round. The eliminated thereafter, however, truly are eliminated!

Would it be possible to program the conquer cup so that you don't end up with the same players in round 2 as in round 1? I don't want to lose two games in a row to the same noob.

I love it. A cook, a private, and a Sarg. All play like cooks, missing bonuses kills and leaving borders and acting like its a terminator game killing the only major.

-53 points. Thanks, but I may end up saving the $5 and buying some beer. At least that leaves me happy & satisfied in the end.

Minor bug... If you win your round 1 game it says "You are waiting to advance to round 2" when it should really be round 3.

I would really appreciate a comment on whether or not this is possible/will be considered. It will influence my decision as to whether or not to buy into CC IV and beyond. Thanks!
