That’s right… you guessed it… time for the 1v1 tourney. Here’s what it is all about…

Description
This will be a 1v1 single elimination tournament. Seeding of players will be randomized and we’ll have as many rounds as necessary to find a winner. In the most likely event that the number of players does not make a full bracket (something other than 2, 4, 8, 16, etc) then there will be some wildcard games to get us to a full bracket. I haven’t worked out the details of that piece but everyone who wants to join the tourney will be allowed entry even if it makes the brackets really ugly.There will be a max of 16 players in this tourney. I will give a seeding preference (to avoid the wildcard entries) if you sign up early. The sooner you sign up the better position you are in to not have to play that wildcard round.

Rules – We’ll be playing standard house rules and games will be treated as if they were Wizard Ladder games.

Map – Snowscapes and Mirages by Arctic Wolf - the link to the downloads section is here

Speed of play – We want players to be reliable and fast. It is understood that real life happens and sometimes you cannot play for a period of time. If you cannot get your turn played within 3 days then you must post in the absentee logs otherwise you risk forfeiting the game. There will be no subs.

Signup CLOSEDpost in this thread that you want to join the tourney. Post your email address that you want used for the tourney (ex: I want to join the tourney, mjschuck at fidnet dot com). Signup is open… it will be closed two weeks after the map making tourney results are finalized (estimating Oct 25) on Oct 25 at Noon ET or sooner if we get 16 players signed up. .... still don't have the map so we'll give it a little more time. 16 players max and maybe until the 26th???, sign up fast two slots remaining!!!

Winner – In addition to eternal fame and glory, this may be used as the opportunity to revamp the wizard ladder standings/brackets, etc and the winner will crowned the WL Champ

Race Selection in games

Round 1 games – since the seeding was based on when you signed up (I was going to randomize it and then this just sort of worked out) the higher seeded person is listed first and will play first which is the Frostlings and the second player listed will play Azracs.

Quarter Final Games - Where possible, both players will play a different race from the Round 1 games. Where this is not possible the player that signed up earlier will be given the race preference.

Semi Final Games – If a player has played the same race twice then that player will play the other race. If both players have played the same race twice, or if both players have already played both races then the player that signed up earlier will be given the race preference.

Finals - The player that signed up earlier will be given the race preference. Exception: if one of the players has played the same race in the three earlier rounds then he will get to play the other race.

Turn Logs – Please keep them up to date and post in them even if it is only with a “turn sent” comment. Have fun with your turn logs as other players may wish to read them.

Tourney Discussion thread A new thread will be opened to discuss the tourney games.(Never got around to this so just use this thread) Speculation and voting on who you think will win, which matches are the ones to watch, who is the favorite, what are the strategies you wish to use, etc. It will be an open forum to discuss things about the tourney while this thread will remain open to document progress with the tourney, results, etc

Results – post your results in this thread. Example – “Forster beat Enginerd in Game 5” (yes Forster… you will be the lucky one to play me it looks like )


(edit - added ending date of signups and max# players, added tourney brackets. Updated games finished 11/25, updated games finished 12/13, updated games finished 12/29, updated games finished 2/28)

I can't submit a map for the 1v1 tournament but I'll certainly try my hand at beating the pahooty out of somebody else in a scenario type battle. My email is darryl.peers@dsl.pipex.com. I got in here as quickly as I could as I didn't want to be seeded low, I don't want a tough player in the first round!

Two more players added.... wonder how long it will take to get over 8 players.

@Dazzle - Seeing as how I don't know three of the five signed up it's hard to say how good the competition is, but the 5th player to sign up is no slouch.... in fact former WL champ is one of his many titles

Be glad... this way Dan got to help judge the maps... and he helped picked a really good one for this tourney (still waiting for the the official tally though )

I'm sure we'll have LOTS

three or four days into this, we haven't even announced the map and we already have 6 players signed up. A few more announcements here and there to spark some interest, a few well placed emails here and there.... yeah there will be more

1 vs 1 sounds good.
Seems hard to get games with more players moving smoothly these days.
So I'm in!

The competition looks good so far, is there anybody who is renowned for being good at these things who's signed up yet, besides CSH?!

Legions. Dan, Eriksson, Gandie... I always enjoy playing against Zsaber too. Don't snub Enginerd either - he was the Champ!

Mind, there are plenty of new faces that'll undoubtedly show their talents. Last year was a good year for new people to show their worth, this year in Singles promises the same.

Yes, Yes... many accomplished players in this list. Very exciting.

2 of the 3 judges have completed judging the maps and I should have the final results soon so I can announce the map we'll be playing. I'm sure hoping we can get a few more players... maybe even make it to 16!!!

Umm, Crazy, but when did I became renowned for playing by e - mail? I would rather say it's more the opposite I only started playing PBEM games a year ago, and I think I didn't get really deep into it yet...

Enginerd brushes aside our topic of conversation to hop about at the fact that we might have enough to have a round before the quarter finals!!! Well I never! I take it Gandalf, affectionately named 'Gandie', is modest because I have a feeling that he is really good at PBEM, just a feeling but I'm sure I'm right, whether Gandalf's aware of it or not.

Well if you want me to participate in the conversation

I have played against several other players signed up thus far and have been handed terrible defeats. I'll just caution you about a few players.... like Eriksson and DanP, don't forget about Zsaber or Thorongil either. Those 4 are veterans and been around a long time and seen many games. I know Gandalf more for his most excellent maps than his ability to play.... however.... when mapmakers make good maps they normally have a knack for playing well. Lots of newer players that I've not had the privelege of playing.... there could be some sleepers in there. All very exciting.

I'd really like to think we could get to 16 but we'll see. I think we'll give it another week before I close things out and start the maps. There are a couple active players I know of that could sign up so we'll wait and see...

I don't like playing 1vs1 games that much, but if there are 15 players, I think I will sign up

When there is an FFA or team tourney starting, I'm definitely in.

We've got 10 players, I've heard from one other who is soon to register making 11, if we find 4 more after then we can strong arm Pawel to be the 16th player. Sign up will be open for the rest of this week.

Map to be announced soon (tonight or tomorrow) along with a newspost and one final push to get players to sign up.
