The Solos Tournament- 2012

Postby sjg11 » 18 May 2012, 20:07

Alright, this part of the site has been dead for too long. Time for a tournament to celebrate sjg's official (and it is official) rejuvenation of this part of the site.

I have decided to arrange a tournament for this year (whenever) to celebrate a rejuvenation of the site. Basically, the last Solos only game was God knows when and someone has to try to do something to change it.

The tournament will have 21 participants. The participants will be split into 3 groups of 7. They will play 3 games simultaneously during the course of the tournament. The games will be anonymous so Premium members only.

In these 3 games, the countries will be split into 3 categories:
The Good: France and Russia
The Bad: Austria and Italy
The Ugly: England, Turkey and Germany

6 of the players in the group will play all 3 categories and one person will play 3 Uglys.

Communications will be allowed in the games.

The top 2 will automatically qualify for the Final. The person in 3rd with the highest number of points wins a place in the Final. The other 2 who are in 3rd place in their group lose.

The Final will be one group between 7 players with 3 games run simultaneously.

The scoring system will be as follows. You automatically get the same amount of points that is equal to the number of supply centers you own. We then add points depending on your position and double them.These are the raw points given for positions:
1: 14
2: 12
3: 10
4: 8
5: 6
6: 4
7: 2

It should give an incentive for the soloer to go for 19 or 20 SCs instead of 18 and for a minnow to hang in there until the end.

You get 5 points for surviving until the end of 1905 and 10 points for surviving until the end of 1910.

By the way, forgot to say that participants must take the Solo Pledge before they sign up and the game only ends when a solo has been achieved or is deemed virtually impossible. The solos pledge is here:

I, username, do hereby pledge, by my free will, without any duress being applied to be, and being of sound mind, in the witness of the Mods and gamers of this forum, that I will commit myself to winning this game outright to the best of my ability. Should one of the seven prove to be an Oathbreaker in this regard, I will spurn all talks of enacting a draw and will dutifully fight until no such draw can take place. Should a stalemate occur and all players agree, I will continue to seek a solo win for as long as this is possible. If it proves impossible, and all players agree, then there will be no winner for this game and I will not ever claim to have won it. I pledge to not surrender, and continue active participation in the shoutbox if I should be defeated, as I continue to have a vote in the stalemate agreement.

Just edit in your username, read it and you're set.

That doesn't add up correctly. One person would have to play all 3 Uglys, not 2 Uglys and 1 Good.

You need to sign the pledge. Just replace username with your username in it. Unless you've already signed the pledge and I missed it.
