Themed Event recruitment is now open!

Post by stockwellpete » Thu Jan 10, 2019 9:49 am

Matches in this section are played to a tighter schedule and must be prioritised above matches from other sections. Either player may set up the challenge in this section. Remember to PM your opponent as well as placing the challenge and password in this thread. The group stage matches will be completed in the first month of the competition, the knock-out matches will be allowed around 18 days for completion. Unfinished matches will be subject to adjudication.

I am hoping that we will be able to recruit 24 players to this section this time so that we can have two separate pools of 12 players in each. This will mean that we can have three players in each of the four qualifying groups instead of the usual four. Players will then play paired games ("mirror matches") at the group stage instead of single battles. If we only manage to recruit 16 players to this section we will use the old system again, where the group stage matches are single battles and the knockout stage of the tournament are paired games.

For the first time in the FOG2DL the Themed Event will be using scenarios that I have made rather than the "skirmish mode" that is used elsewhere in the tournament. These multi-player scenarios can be downloaded from the community downloads area in-game. The five (or six) scenarios are as follows . . .

Group stage
Soissons v2 (486 AD)
Tolbiac v2 (496 AD)* (this scenario will only be used if we have 16 players rather than 24)
Vouille v2 (507 AD)

Quarter-finals
Invasion of Burgundy v1 (523 AD)

Semi-finals
Vezeronce v1 (524 AD)

Final
Autun v1 (532 AD)

Please note that the scenarios for the group stage matches have an additional "kill the king" victory condition which means that the battle will end if one of the commander-in-chiefs is killed. In these circumstances the matches will be scored according to the following example - Player A is leading Player B 26-12 but then loses his commander-in-chief: the match will be scored 51-26 to player B.

This is important because where players finish with the same number of points at the end of the group stage, the points aggregate from the matches between those players will be used to decide the final places in the group table. If this does not separate the players then lots will be drawn to determine which player proceeds to the next stage of the competition.

We have 12 players now and that is the minimum number required to ensure this section goes ahead. :D The next magic number is 16, where we can have one pool of 16, and the magic number after that is 24, where we can have two pools of 12. I will be actively trying to build this section up over the next week or so in an effort to reach 24 players.

We now have enough for one pool of sixteen players. Anyone else signing up now will be considered a reserve unless we can reach 24 players. If this happens we will run two pools of 12 in this section.
