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:
(green players are experienced, yellow are new players, no color... you're on the fence and I haven't decided yet, much depends on how many more sign up like Draco, AW, me.)

is there gonna be a AoW SM team tourney too ??

edit: because i don't have the first AoW , wanna join a competition

What tastes like chicken? Precious ? Yes !
Chicken does, but so does turkey. It means they are all
against us, how else would explain such an inconsistency ?

You ,you're against me, at least I know that.

The universe smiles wicked, hungry smile at us, but through bars, mind you.

@ Thorongil and Disenchanted - you guys crack me up

@ Luke - The SM mapmaking tourney going on right now will have the winning map used in a 1v1 tourney this summer. Between now and then not sure what they have in the pipeline..... however... check out the bargain bins and various websites that sell AoW1, pick yourself up a copy and come join our tourney

Header updated... already have 11... that was fast.

I'll go through the email addresses later and post them in the header. Keep posting them so I can find them easily, I've got most everybody that is signed up I think. I'll bug you guys if I need an update

And now apparently you're throwing down the gauntlet with random quotes from Monty Python...I warn you, sir, do not attempt to match your powers of illogical reasoning against mine! I am the king of casuistry, the master of misapprehension, the sultan of solecism! also I have a thesaurus I see no honor in fighting a non sequitur duel against an unarmed opponent.

I don't know, you've got to be careful of those unarmed opponents...

welcome Shosuro! Exciting to see new players joining this is great. Header updated, check your emails to make sure I got them correct. If I didn't have them I pulled them from your profile.

Also, I've started to put you into the two groups, green for experienced veterans, yellow for non veterans and newer players that I have no idea how strong you are (and we've got lots of them). We'll see how many more sign up and then I can put those on the bubble into a group. Much depends if Draco, AW sign up and if I'm needed to round out the group (we'd all be green ) If you want to argue about your starting spot feel free... CSH is on the bubble since he made it the second round of the 1v1, Deroman and Pawel are also strong contenders for the veteran group. I feel like we'll have some really good teams....

Speaking of that... I was asked a question about how "random" the teams will be. My initial thought was random number generator one green and one yellow. I'm open to suggestions but if two people mutually agree to be team-mates (one yellow, one green) then should I take that into account when putting the teams together? Your thoughts. I think by having the two groups we'll avoid the "uber" teams.

For the randomizing, you could use dice.

What will happen if there's a different number of greens and yellows?
