Varsity tournament 2018
« on: December 27, 2017, 05:21:46 AM »
As we are about to go into the JV4 I wanted to announce the plans for approximately late July to mid August I plan on hosting the Varsity tournament. On that tournament I hope to see alliances like Cold, BLITZ, Based On, Pilgrims,  HOD and Legacy participate and anyone else. I encourage everyone to reach out to all your friends and bring new blood into this game. I understand that is 7 months away but I am putting it out so we all have something to look forward to and plan for

As the JV4 is winding down to a close it is time to get serious regarding the varsity tournament.  For this tournament there will be NO brackets, 5 active players and I am pretty sure no pmode rules will be enforced.  I will do this on the Rayman Farewell Tournament scoring system.  It might be starting July or August depending on who is participating and the time frames everyone needs to have accomodated.

Please confirm your interest on this thread so that we can get a feel for who will be wanting to participate

A suggestion for the final round,  shorten it to two weeks. Puts more pressure on the actives.

Do not have a seeding system as it just encouraged non action as per legacy.

Poor Idanthrysus. We scored points. Not many,  granted,  but more than Pilgrims.

I believe Legacy did more than sit around. Results from Round 1.
Blitz -8
Legacy -6
Pilgrms -4
Cold -4

Round 1 is officially over. We are now on the 1 week pause. Since Pug dropped out Blitz, Legacy, Pilgrims and Cold are advancing to round 2.

And the results from Round 2
Legacy - 6
Blitz - 3
Pilgrims - 3
Cold - 0

Yes, our smaller sized alliance mates were the only ones that landed successful attacks in the final round , but isn't that the purpose of the JVT? There were plenty of red stripes buzzing around searching.

ALL involved from ALL the participants played extremely well.  Points were VERY tough to find.

Preliminary rules for the upcoming Varsity Tournament:

1) Active alliance component:
Participating alliances will be required to have 5 players active at all times. (the only reason I say 5 instead of 10 is we have such a small player pool in most alliances 10 would disqualify many alliances).
----Players are considered active if they are Not in dmode, Not in pmode, Not suspended. This means that each alliance must have minimum 5 players attackable at all hours.

2) Alliances will set points to 1 trillion (1,000,000,000,000). Inactives do not count. There is no % loss from dmode.

3) Rounds will be conducted in a free-for-all fashion. This increases the target availability for all players. 

4) Alliance leaders will have 24 hours to accept war requests after they are sent.  It is considered poor form to wait that long, but since we had complaints the past few tournaments I do need to put this into effect.

5) There will be 3 rounds, each round will last 3 weeks.

6) The start of a round will be on Tuesdays for the Europeans, Mondays for the Americans as 00:00 game time happens to be a Tuesday for the Eurozone.

7) Rounds will end in accordance with above.

8) There is no pmode monitoring.  Above I have said that ALL alliances must have 5 players who are active. A player who is in pmode is not considered active as they are not hittable.

9) There are NO brackets. Anyone in an alliance who is active is a target.

10) Scoring it is based upon Rayman's scoring system. Admiral T-Wayne will post the scoring guidelines and then I will modify this topic. I am taking Captain Theodore's suggestions regarding this.

Official start date is to be determined, tentatively early August
