August 2021 Monthly Challenge Blind Companion Tournament: Bronze
Mods can join! (except groovysmurf and EBConquer)
This is a blind companion tournament for the August Monthly Challenge. That means you will be signing up without knowledge of the map. This tournament will be played on the map and settings needed to receive the bronze token.
We are looking for 16 players to play 15 games over the month of August. Three games will be sent once per week.
People with priority get in first regardless of when they post to join. You receive priority by signing up for the previous month's challenge BEFORE the sign-up deadline and not getting in.
Schedule August 1st - 3 games August 8th - 3 games August 15th - 3 games August 22nd - 3 games August 29th - 3 games
Settings Maps: One small, non-complicated map Players Per Game: 2 Game Type: 1v1 Initial Troops: Automatic Play Order: Sequential Spoils: Nuclear Reinforcements: Chained FOG: Yes TRENCH: Yes Round Limit: 20 Round Length: 24 Hours
Rules Each player will play each other player once. Whomever has the best record over 15 games, wins. In the event of a tie, tiebreaker game(s) on the same map and settings will be sent until players are no longer tied. For example, if two people tie, one game will be made and the winner will also win the tournament. If three people tie, three games will be made (A vs B; B vs C; A vs C) and the winner of two games will win the tournament. If four people tie, six games will be made (A vs B; A vs C; A vs D; B vs C; B vs D; C vs D) and hopefully just one person wins all three of their games and we can end this craziness! If five or more people tie, I'll just quit the site and let someone else deal. Tie-breaker games will not be played in August and therefore will not count towards the August Challenge scoreboard.
If you quit the tournament you are not eligible to get a medal for the August Monthly Challenge!
Signups end July 31st!
Multiple iterations of the tournament will be run if filled. Keep signing up until the deadline!
We do have an issue. Big Al 2012 hasn't been onsite since the 23rd and I need to get his Round 10-12 games filled and put out Round 13-15 tomorrow. Since, this is a 1v1 tourney and he's only won 1 of his games, I think the best option here is just to remove him from play and the points for his rounds will be nullified. That way no replacements are needed.
If anyone has an issue with this, please let me know asap. Thanks!
