The 2009 doubles tournament is about to start, sign up NOW! Just post your name and email address below. Sign Ups Open until Midnight ET March 12th.

The Rules:

This will be a doubles tournament with all games being played by 2 player teams (2 vs 2). When you sign up I will place each player in one of two brackets. One for “Experienced” players and one for “Others”. I do not mean to slight anyone by putting them in one group or the other, I have a good feel for the experienced players out there but we have some new ones that I’m not that familiar with so the “other” group is likely to have the black horse of the tourney in there. I will base the seeding on my experience with your play, the wizard ladder, and the most recent 1v1 tourney. Each group will be split up equally in numbers and then I will randomly pick teams grabbing one player from each group. This way (in theory) we minimize the chance of having an “uber” and "newbie" teams from the start.

Map – Round 1 map will be a classic that was used in the 2001 World Cup, we will use either use The Feud (the most recent one in the dl section) or Thinreed Lake World Cup 2001 version. I like them both, one is a quick battle with strong troops, the other you get a little bit more time to develop but neither is TOO large and should provide fast play.

Round 1 Games – I will guarantee that all teams will play a minimum of two games…. If we have enough sign up then the brackets will have a round robin style to them where you get to play both sides of the round 1 map, otherwise we’ll end up in a double elimination style format.

Map – Round 2 and beyond… Swiss tourney style. Teams will be ranked after Round 1 and the #1 seed will then play the #2 seed... and so on. You will only play against a team once during the tourney. Highest ranked team of round 1 get to pick the map for Round 2, their opponent gets to pick the race first. Lower seeded teams get to pick the race first in the other games too. Each round we will repeat this process. There will be a round 3 and round 4.

If we have an odd number of players sign up then I will be the last one to sign up to make it an even number.

Teams – you keep your team all the way through the tourney, no subs, if a player leaves, the team loses and is disqualified.

Sign ups begin Now and will remain open until Mar 12 midnight Eastern time. First games will be sent out Friday night March 13.

Players Signed Up:

he uses version 1.0 of the game and refuses to patch it.
Good lord, why? I can't find anything that says you're required to patch the game, but I think that's just because it goes without saying.

However, if you go to the tournament section of the site, it clearly says:
Make sure you have installed the latest patch to bring your game up to v1.36 (aka, Triumph Standard Rules or "TS136 Rules").


...which really shouldn't have to be said, since the rules are completely different in version 1.0, and as he just demonstrated, it's not compatible with the current version and no one else uses it.

Alponze, please just make this easy and patch the game. What you're doing makes no sense. Don't make Enginerd take off the white gloves and halo...

someone still plays without the patch...

Yeah... we all need to play the TS1.36 version. If this wasn't clear it's because this is the standard version for all games and it's never come up in the last 5 years that I can remember. I'll send Alphonze an email to disucss the situation with him.

CSH - I got an email from him earlier this week or last weekend, he sometimes get busy with RL during the week and shows up strong on the weekends. If you don't hear from him this weekend then let me know.

Also, Fubarno should have his new CD soon so he can actually play the turns too.

I'm enjoying reading the turn logs in all these games (but wish there were more of them to read ) I'm on vacation for a week and hope to see the three stalled games moving by the time I get back. I know not all games move fast but in another 4 person game I'm in I played 5 turns this week and fully expect to see one more turn before I go on vacation.

Alphonze56 has withdrawn from the tourney. After consulting with several of the veteran players we will do the following.

Drahza (who was unable to play due to Fubarno's absence) will take Alphoze's place and be Dan Peterson's partner. Dis and Pawel have agreed to let Drahza take over in their game and I will send emails out to the players to get the appropriate turn to Drahza in that game. If Team Thorongil are in agreement too then we'll get that game moving once again with Drahza playing.

Team Fubarno and Team Eriksson will not be participating in the next rounds the other 8 teams will be. I'll get the header updated to reflect things later.

Looks like Game 3 ended with victory to Team Dafyth

One game remaining open... game 6 between Team Thorongil and Team Dan Peterson.... It's a nail biter

Things are getting intense, turns are coming around quickly and it feels like one team is going bust free and really tip the scales.... too bad I can't figure out which one it is that will do that

Let's watch and soon... very soon... we'll see some more info on round 2!

With Thorongil finishing up with a victory in his game we have now finished Round 1 (finally)... Final Standings after Round 1 are below. I'll try and make some more annoucements about it later with a much prettier and easy to read score tally. I've asked team Draco to come up with a map for round 2. Hopefully we'll have one soon that I can send out to everyone. Hopefully we'll get games started in the next week or so. For the next 4 games 1st will play 2nd, 3rd vs 4th, 5th vs 6th and 7th vs 8th. Also, the lower ranking of the two teams gets to pick their races first. I'll send out the map for next round soon.

Am I the only one who can't figure out how this was scored? I thought it was 1 point for a win, 0 points for a loss, but somehow Draco and Enginerd have 3 points. I can't figure out what opponent score means either.

Yikes, that post looked much better when I previewed it (although it is still messed up, just ignore it ). Try this link below for a cleaner look.

[tourney bracket results JPEG]

Points for = 1 point for victory. 4 teams got 2 points (the top 4). Opponents points is the sum of the points that your opponents received. Draco and Enginerd's team got 1 opponent point here as one of the teams they defeated actually won a game. Virtually a tie for the top 4 but had to have a tiebreaker somehow.

That's better. I think the list below got mixed up at least twice: Score got switched with Opponent Score, and the first four Opponent Scores are wrong (should be 1, 1, 0, 0) and my brain was tying itself into knots trying to figure out what the numbers meant

I had wanted to but after I sent out a couple emails I found that only about two teams were left complete as we had several players disappear. (yes, Travis, your team was good and so was Draco's) but there were challenges just about everywhere else. Some of those players may have come back but hard to continue with only 2-3 teams when we had 10.

I'd be up for a 2v2 tournament... granted I'd need a partner, but if I were to find one, I'd gladly enter. Of course... we'd need a new tournament to start for that.

Yeah, I wonder where Enginerd is these days? The other Tournament has vanished as well. I managed to complete one Round 1 game out of two and one Round 2 game out of two.

Enginerd is missing too? Interesting.... Unfortunately, Stoneskin seems to be missing as well and as a result, all my games on the clan page have frozen (which currently happens to be about half my games). Perhaps I'll try to start some more games here.
