We the WEST challenge the EAST to a duel....

Here are the RULES to the Challenge

Each team will must have between 5 to 10 players.
There will be 10 games total (2 games for each of the 5 maps).
Each Team will Choose a Captain (Morn is already Chosen for the WEST)
The Captain will decide how many players he wants in his team.
(All players not chosen - do not complain - this is the hardest part of the competition and I thank Morn for volunteering).

The Captain will decide which players he wants on his team.

2 games per map - One Green - Other Red for each team

The Maps are:
1. Sea Switzerland
2. Trinity
3. New Paradise
4. Swamp
5. Twin Paradise

NOTE: If BOTH captains agree - then any map can be swapped for another unique map (ie there must be 5 unique maps).

Of Course - Medium Density, Extended Units, 10 Revenue Per Turn, Infinite Time for each Turn.
Chess Clock - 14 Days Base Time with a 48 hour freeze.....
This is AT LEAST 2 days to make your turn - and you have 14 days extra for long weekends.
I hope this is Fair for everyone as 14 days per turn is a bit silly.


The most than any player can play is 2 games.
(So you need at least 5 players if all players play 2 games - or 10 players if each person plays 1 game only
Example - You can have 6 players - 4 players who play 2 games each - and 2 players who play 1 game each.
If a players plays 2 games - they MUST be on the SAME map.

Once the teams have been chosen - the Captains will then decide who will play on what map.
Selection of Players will also be strategic.....

Selection will be as follows (by posting on this forum by Captains - one selection at a time....).
NOTE: Each Map is selected slightly differently

Map 1: Game 1 - West Captain - Choses Green Player
Map 1: Game 1 - East Captain - Choses Red Player
Map 1: Game 2 - East Captain - Choses Green Player
Map 1: Game 2 - West Captain - Choses Red Player

Map 2: Game 1 - East Captain - Choses Green Player
Map 2: Game 1 - West Captain - Choses Red Player
Map 2: Game 2 - West Captain - Choses Green Player
Map 2: Game 2 - East Captain - Choses Red Player

Map 3: Game 1 - West Captain - Choses Red Player
Map 3: Game 1 - East Captain - Choses Green Player
Map 3: Game 2 - East Captain - Choses Red Player
Map 3: Game 2 - West Captain - Choses Green Player

Map 5: Game 1 - West Captain - Choses Red Player
Map 5: Game 2 - East Captain - Choses Red Player
Map 5: Game 1 - East Captain - Choses Green Player
Map 5: Game 2 - West Captain - Choses Green Player

EAST
DO YOU ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE
If you do - then please pick a captain (AHgpeu / Alex1978 .???... doesnt matter who - just pick one)

Also - could someone who speaks English AND Russian please translate this into the Russian Forum for me
Thanks in advance.

why not play this tournament WITHOUT any assignation of victory/lost bonus??
Im talking about those points which are normally gained in case of victory or deducted in case of defeat...i mean that this tournament should be played by players as it is...WITHOUT worries about ranking :wink: !!

I dont know if it is technically possible...yes of course the team-winner will win a special award...the loser not! but each player personal ranking condition will not be compromised by the results of the battle....

think about it!!!

I think guderian27 brings a very interesting idea to the forum. Without the specter of gaining or losing points i think we would see players taking much more innovative/risky type of movements. Could be worth a look.

Ranking points make no difference to me and will not change the way that I play?

When do we start? (Assuming that I make the cut of course) :oops:

Any response from the East?
Are you up to the challenge...?
Do you have a captain...?
Do you have any tactics yet...?

who will play the SWAMP. (Bambr sure gave AHgpeu a good running last year on that map.)
will Morn Play his favourite planet (Trinity?) and who will you put up to beat him?

I had a sneak peak in the russian forum (using on-line translators) and it seems the East team are finding it difficult to find a captain....they have willing participants - but no captain.
No one is up for the burdon.
Mabey...... just Maybe ..... they are a bit worried.

I am sure they will find a volunteer to go to the Western Front :)

The West Team is complete. It's a small but I think a very competitive one. All players have recieved their assignments (to maps) already.

When the East is ready we can start.

Ravermeister

Alex, was just wondering why you made the rule that a player must play both of his games on the same map? Personally, I would have liked to play 2 different opponents, one game each on different maps--say a red game on sea swiss and a green game on new paradise. Perhaps no one else thinks this way but I find it more interesting and less predictable to play 2 different opponents--even if it was on the same map--red against one player and green against another. Just so long as everyone plays a red and green game what would it matter?

Hello Jim, I think you will play against two different players but I'm not 100% sure.

Whatever works best for our team works for me Lars. I have been checking the long range weather forecasts, looks like a storm is brewing just over the horizon :wink:

Looks like the east had a few more players that wanted a piece of us than we had that wanted a piece of them :lol:
As Russel Crow said at the start of gladiator--release hell!

I have no idea why I made a rule that a player could only play on the same map..... Probably had the power go to my head. It turned out ok in the end. Thanks to Lars(morn) and Dav for being captains.

As storm quoted "release hell"

but don't fire until you see the whites of their eyes.

I eagerly await my first turns

BTW Alex, it has been my experience that if you wait till you see the whites of their eyes to shoot, they will have already stuck their sword threw your heart :wink:
