I'm going to need 32 players for this tournament plus 2 reserves.
I'll be using a scoring system to determine who advances through the rounds. You will score points based on when you were eliminated in each game.
1st Place (winner of the game) will get 12 points 2nd Place (last person to be eliminated) will get 7 points 3rd Place (second to last person to be eliminated) will get 6 points 4th Place (third to last person to be eliminated) will get 5 points and so on....
Since the games will have a 20 round limit on them, if that limit is reached, places will be determined by troop count and then by order of elimination (if applicable).
Using Random.org I will split everyone into 4 groups of 8.
Round 1 ----> Each group will play 5 eight-man escalating games. The top 4 scorers from each group will advance onto round 2. Round 2 ----> Players will now be put into 2 groups of 8. Each group will play 5 eight-man escalating games. The top 4 scorers from each group will advance onto round 3. Round 3 ----> Finally, remaining players will be put into 1 group of 8. Again, this group will play 5 eight-man escalating games. Player with the most points wins the tourney.
If a tie occurs, I will advance the player who got the most 1st places. If this does not resolve the issue, I will advance the player who got the most 2nd places, then 3rd places, then 4th places and so on until a winner is found.
This tournament will use the same 5 maps, which will be determined through a vote, for all 3 rounds. Below is a list of 20 hand picked maps that I personally like and also think are good for 8 player escalating games. When you post in this thread to let me know you wanna play, please choose 5 different maps from the list below that you would like to play on the most. Once everyone has posted, the 5 maps that got the most votes will be the maps used. If there are any ties between maps I will simply include all the tied maps in with the 5 to be used then move on to the next map with the most votes.
