    I absolutely want in on this! Of course now that I’m interested all the players who are way better than me will join in. Good luck all!

    Also I’m not sure if you have decided on RMG settings for the tourney (I assume they would be standardized for all players) but I think a small or medium map with relatively few independents is the best way to go. This will maximize the conflict between the players rather than indies.

    Looking forward to it!

    @ shortbear, I’m on a river in Prague at the moment (I have a hard life ;) ) and the full rules are on a computer far far away, but the important stuff, off the top of my head:

    it’s a one versus one tournament
    medium Map, standard settings is the default (but this can be changed if both you and your opponent agree)
    The 15 second rule is in
    The tournament format is essentially that of the World Cup.
    There’s a whole list of other stuff, to be posted very soon, as will details of the prizes.

    I’m in as long as the turn limit is at least 3 minutes. My laptop is too slow on MP to keep up when I have 3 cities and 3 fighting parties, and a bunch of scouts to control every turn.

    Yea. I’m in!

    #103726

    I haven’t done much of anything other than making maps lately so i think i should pass on this event lol. But im highly interested in watching some sort of replays. I think this is a great place to ask if that system is in the works atm and if so, would it be ready for the event? Id love to to join in just for the sake of saying i participated but i would just be a walk over for proper pvp players haha :D

    I am more impressed that Triumph is backing this. Hopefully they continue to do stuff like that and I will continue to support them as a fan!

    I am in by the way!

    Great news! Add me please. I think need two tournaments. PVP and team vs team. For the tournament, do not use a random map or one of the already known IMHO.

    It would seem that it is a random map unless otherwise stated by both participants.

    Also anyone can feel free to setup a team tourney, just gota go through the correct channels :) The forum is a good start i would guess

    Unfortunately I can’t the first days after the 15th and I should try a mp first to know if my laptop won’t crash. It does run the sp-maps, but on the bigger ones it start to do so, but that is my laptop’s videocard fault and not the game( does so with other games as well). So I fear I have to wait till the next tournament.

    Sounds interesting, I would love to join.

    Some questions though: Some of us live in the different time zones, so I wonder if it will be possible to choose specific time that will fit everyone in a particular game? (I know, stupid job, family etc, right?)
    Also, how are you going to approach exploit use?
    And of course, will we be able to choose race/class?

    Ive talked to BBB about this in the past so i will try to answer based on the info he has given me, but this could have changed since then.

    Some questions though: Some of us live in the different time zones, so I wonder if it will be possible to choose specific time that will fit everyone in a particular game?

    You are given a time frame to complete your duel. So say “X player vs X player, 24 hours to complete duel – work out a duel time between the two of you”

    Also, how are you going to approach exploit use?

    AFAIK, anything in game is a go.

    And of course, will we be able to choose race/class?

    I asked hm about this, im not 100% sure f i remember correctly. I think he said you choose everything at the early stages of the tourney and the final few stages become more and more random. Not sure if that is how it ended up though.

    @ Marcus, with the help of several mp players, notably Jean de Metz, there are several ways to deal with exploits.

    Also, I’ll try and draw the starting groups with ppl in the same time zone as far as possible.

    @ Lord Theron and iHunterkiller, and the rest of the ‘cannon fodder’ there’ll be plenty of opportunity for you to play, currently it looks like 3 matches minimum assuming you get knocked out quickly
