Imperium Tournament: Official Thread
Tournament rules below.
ubercacher16 (1415 D)
22 Feb 19 UTC
Six games with each person playing each tribe, starting simultaneously.

2 day phases, anon, HDV.

Rated with a bet of 10.

Tournament scoring is 1 point for a win 0.5 for a draw(regardless of size), and 0 for a defeat.

Tiebreakers are as follows:
Whoever had more solos wins.
If solos are same, then whoever had the most SCs in their drawn games wins.
If that is the same, then whoever had the most SCs in their survived games wins.
And if that is the same, then whoever had the most fun wins!

Player list is here:
1. ubercacher16
2. Mr. Finkelmuiyer
3. Sky_Hopper
4. Temasek22
5. CCR
6. Frozen Dog

I will PM everybody the PW and trust that you join each game as a different power. It will work out so that everyone can join each game and I don't know who is who.

I also decided to moderate all the games just in case someone needs a pause or extend in a pinch, so if you need such a service just PM me.

That's all I think, let me know if I forgot anything. We can post scores to games as they finish, and discussion about ongoing games is forbidden as per site rules.

To the last ones joining: before joining the games, check out the powers available on all games, in order to not leave the same last one power on different games...

Well with our limited dataset, I was actually pleased to see a nice distribution of points among the different factions (with one exception). No country solo'd twice! Using our tournament points to determine who 'won' among the various powers, the Saxons emerged victorious, while there was a 3 way tie for 2nd.

Meanwhile, press F to pay respect to the poor Vandali, who emerged with 0 points.

1st - Saxones (2 points)
2nd - Gothi (1.5 points, tiebreak on draw of 11)
3rd - Hunni (1.5 points, tiebreak on draw of 9)
4th - Franci (1.5 points, tiebreak on draw of 7)
5th - Alamanni (1 point)
6th - Vandali (0 points)

It would have been 0.5 had someone not stabbed me at the end of Game 4.

No comments on that last game...maybe one... uber... a question... what happened after I supportrd you to eliminate browns -then we down do three... considering we Both seemed happy with the 4way...
ubercacher16 (1415 D)
Fri 02 AM UTC
I think I was voting draw the whole time. But by the end after Vandali was dead I was trying to grab more centers hoping that I could get higher then you CCR, I was surprised when I found out that you were the one I was taking centers from. Unfortunately my selfishness cost us the game.

I think we all lost around 50 vPoints, give or take, in this tournament. Really fun ride though, and I don't care at all (given that my rating is already in the toilet).
CCR (1671 D)
Fri 10 AM UTC
Feel what vpoints are about, undet the current system! Yes, skyhopper, i soloed twice, won the champ and still my points came back to where they were at start.
Frozen Dog (1196 D)
Fri 05 PM UTC
Yeah I think those double fleets in autumn 414 sealed the deal. After that my solo wasn't guaranteed by any means, but I knew that it was going to be possible if I got lucky a couple times (which ended up being the case).

If you had built A Ven & F Rom I probably would have drawn immediately (though of course maybe CCR would have made a solo attempt!).

Additions to New Game Rules?
I've been noticing that Oli has been more active recently so I wanted to bring this idea up again. People were wondering if variants such as Grey Press or Fog of War could become rules that are applicable to to all game modes rather than just the classic map. This could be done by adding them as options when creating a New Game. It would make for some very very interesting games in my opinion

Age of Pericles
In the "Age of Pericles" variant, the map clearly shows that Euboeius Sinus and Thermas Sinus border each other (top right). However, the movement between them is apparently not possible; this is confirmed by looking at the map info. However, given that the map shows them as clearly in contact, isn't this a mistake?
