Welcome everyone! This follows the setup I've used in my series of the Many Lands Tournaments. This time it features all the USA maps, and in Assassin format! Hence the reason for calling it AMERICAN ASSSASSIN! Never watched the movie, and it's doesn't have good ratings, but the title sounds good!
The format will be 5 player games, with 25 players, placed into 5 divisions. Players will be randomly placed into the first round groups.
Each group gets 5 maps to start in first round (sorry, premium players only). If one player gets 3, 4, or 5 wins, they move on. If one player wins 2, and three others win only 1, the winner of 2 moves on. If two players are tied at 2 wins each, then only they play a 1v1 tie breaker to see who moves on. If all tied at 1 each, one more game in played between all, with the winner moving on.
The second (final) round will be the same format. But if there is a tie breaker for 2 players, it will be best of 3 games.
In the First Round, the maps are USA Great Lakes, USA New England, USA Rockies, USA Southeast, and USA Southwest. The tie breaker game will be Random. In the Second Round, the maps are USA West, US Senate, USA, USA 2.1, and USApocalypse. The tie breaker game will also be Random.
All games will be Assassin, Manual, Sequential, Nuclear, No fog, 30 Round Limit.
Once 25 players are in, I'd like to add up to 3 reserves and get started ASAP. Players will have 48hrs to join or will be replaced promptly with the reserves.
