Field of Glory II Tournament

Post by Daniele » Fri Oct 13, 2017 10:51 am

We are pleased to announce the first Field of Glory 2 public tournament. This will be played using the normal Field of glory 2 Multiplayer system.
Anyone can enter. To join, go to the tournament page HERE, while the general tournament rules can be found HERE!

One of the devs will take part to the tournament too, so it could be a great way to learn a lot about the game and the best tactics!

The first round will commence on Friday 20th October 2017. No further entries can be accepted after the tournament has begun.

Specific tournament rules:
This tournament will involve three rounds. The battles will be medium-sized custom battles.

Round 1: Romans vs Seleucids
Round 2: Romans vs Dacians
Round 3: Macedonians vs Skythians

Games are paired, so each matchup will be played both ways. Each player will be able to choose his forces using the normal force selection system. Random maps are in use, so the two battles in each pair will be on different maps.First round pairings will be selected randomly, subsequent rounds using the Swiss Chess system. Nobody will play the same opponent in more than one round.

The scoring system is as follows:

• If a game runs to the turn limit, each side scores points equal to the enemy % routed at the turn limit. If the game times out, adjustments may be made, depending on how far the game has progressed and who took longer over their turns – see below.
• If one army breaks, the victorious player scores 60 points plus the difference between the enemy % routed and his own % routed. The loser scores points equal to the winner's % routed.

Examples:
1) If Ben defeats Tamas's army, and has inflicted 45% routed on Tamas, and Tamas has inflicted 15% on Ben, Ben will score 60 + (45 – 15) = 90, Tamas will score 15.
2) However, if Ben defeated Tamas’s army by inflicting 62% routed on Tamas, and Tamas had inflicted 56% routed on Ben, Ben would get 60 + (62 – 56) = 66 points, and Tamas would get 56.
3) If the game is unfinished (or it reached the turn limit) with Ben inflicting 20% routed on Tamas, and Tamas inflicting 10% routed on Ben, Ben would score 20, and Tamas would score 10. (Provided that between them they have played at least 24 turns in all – see below).
Note that this system rewards aggressive play over desultory skirmishing. If you rout an enemy unit then hide for the rest of the game, both players will get extremely low scores - lower than if they played hard and lost.

Byes:
If an odd number of players sign up for the tournament, one player will get a bye in each round. In the first round this is random. In subsequent rounds it will be the player with the lowest score. The score for a BYE is 60 points for each game.

Round times and timing out:
Each round will last 7 days.

Any battles that are not completed by the end of the round will be timed out. The player who has had the game in his “My Turns” box the longest overall will be the one who is deemed to be timed out. This will not normally incur any penalties, unless insufficient turns have been played: If the timed-out player has played less than 12 turns, his score will be reduced proportionately, and his opponent will be granted the BYE score if it exceeds his current score. If the timed-out player has played less than 6 turns, he will not be included in the draw for the next round. This is to prevent someone else’s enjoyment being spoiled by being drawn against someone who has apparently dropped out of the tournament.

I do mean for this tourney, but I don't yet know for certain if it is possible. I am waiting for the PBEM server overlord to get back to me.

When I registered I could see the participants but now that the rooster is full it seems I can't...
Correct or am I missing something?

That seems to be correct yes. I don't know why it is so though.

The tournament is too fast. New players do not have a chance with the beta veteran players with hundreds of hours, because they have not had time to practice.

There will be many more tournaments coming in future, so if you are still learning the ropes waiting won't mean you are missing out. Although playing more experienced players is often a great way to learn too!

Only 2 places left now. Can the system cope with more than 32? I think 64 was mentioned provisionally during the beta.
