[TPA7] Struggles in the Snow II [6 of 20 teams in]

Postby Dukasaur on Sun Nov 15, 2020 1:14 pm

This tournament is part of the TPA 7 tournament series. The original version of this tournament was run during the TPA 4 tournament series back in 2013.

Struggles in the Snow II
----- A TPA 7 Premier tournament for 20 teams of 3


Battles in the snow are legendary as some of the most brutal struggles in the snow that men have ever lived through. The names alone evoke a shiver: La Rothiere, Battle of the Ancre, Borodino, Bogesund, Raate Road, Stalingrad, Leningrad, Weihaiwei, Chosin Reservoir, Bentonville, Barents Sea, Valley Forge, Mount Marmolada, Kutna Hora. All of them were horrible in their own way. Often the death toll from hypothermia and starvation was higher than the death toll from the enemy. At Borodino, the cavalry had to eat their own horses. At Chosin Reservoir, it was said that you do not stop marching, ever, because if you stop your boots will freeze to the ice and you will be trapped, a statue until the spring. At Leningrad, there were a million military casualties but also nearly a million civilians killed or wounded. In terms of sheer numbers, Stalingrad is the big one: more than a million soldiers died, another half a million went into captivity, another million were wounded or sick, the city was reduced to rubble and all its pre-war citizens left homeless. This, the greatest of all the struggles in the snow, is the centrepiece of this tournament.

Tonight in my real life job, I begin winter patrol for the 2020-21 snow season. This naturally makes me think of snow and the many battles it has influenced, and made it an easy decision to run the second edition of this tournament. This is also my 150th tournament overall; I will be marking the occasion with special prizes. Not quite ready to announce all the goodies, but I think you can take it as a given that there will be major prizes to the winners and surprise spot prizes along the way. Stay tuned!
;)


Basic structure: 20 premium-only teams will participate in a full round-robin. Each set in the round robin will consist of 3 games: one of each team's home map from the list of Optional maps, and a third on the mandatory map, featuring the most terrible struggle in the snow that ever happened: the Battle of Stalingrad. After the round robin, four or more teams will advance to a final round.

How to sign up: (please pay close attention!)
  • Sign up with a complete team of 3 premium members. I will not play matchmaker or accept singles.
  • Choose one map from the list of Optional maps. In order to produce reasonable variety, each of the Optional maps may be chosen only three times. Please look over what Optional maps teams before you have signed up for to avoid the hassle of being asked to change your home map.
  • All games will be Sequential, Automatic deployment, 24-hour turns, and a 50-round limit. When you choose your optional map, you may choose Fog or No Fog, Trench or No Trench, and any Spoils and Reinforcement options. The default if you don't choose will be No Spoils, Chained and Foggy.
  • The Stalingrad map will be played on the default settings unless both teams in a match agree to different settings, in which case I will grant their choice. One match will start at a time, a few days apart and the list of who you are playing will always be posted in advance, so there will be time to engage in these kinds of discussions if you wish.

Game frequency: I will not wait for all games in a round to be finished before starting the next round. I'm trying for a frequency of approximately one round every 15 days, depending on my work schedule. The hard limits will be 10 to 30 -- definitely not starting a new round less than 10 days or more than 30 days after the previous one.


show: optional maps


show: the mandatory map stalingrad


Scoring: you will score three points for winning on your home map, four points for winning the mandatory game, and five points for winning on your opponents' home map.
This point system will apply both in the initial round robin and in the Finals, but in the Finals you will have two home maps and two away maps, so the point totals per round will be higher. All scores will reset between the initial round and the Finals.

Note: When this tournament was first run in 2013, it specified No Trench. When I posted this year's version, I was copy-and-pasting and the No Trench snuck in. However, I have now edited it to allow Trench. The reason for the change is that in 2013, Trench was still a fairly new and highly controversial setting. However, seven years has gone by and there's no controversy any more; Trench is generally accepted in Clan play and other Team settings. Since nobody has signed up yet, I think I'm fairly safe making the change, but I just wanted to be explicit in case some people have already read the rules and made plans.

Updated to here.

Of the six teams so far, 3 are Das Schloss teams, so there are no more Das Spots available.
