WELCOME TO THE SIGN UP FOR GARGANTUA'S TOURNAMENT OF EXTRA DEATH AND PAIN

To begin, let me explain to you the purpose of the tournament and why I've sponsored it.  Because there is a purpose, and you all deserve to know about it, and each of you should consider yourself part of the mission.

1. To Promote TripleA, and get users who are unfamiliar with it, or new to it, teamed up with people who do use it, to encourage growth in the community of the game via TripleA.

2. To encourage members of the community to seek out other members that they have NEVER partnered themselves with, or don't know anything about, so that the community grows, understands each other better, and is forced to get along Smiley.  I am counting on each of you, to work hard, and find a partner you don't know anything about, or who hasn't played online, and twist thier arm into joining you.  DO IT. 

That means If you are reading this, and have never played online, consider this your DRAFT NOTICE.  I will be sending PM's to Random people, and encourage them to come here.  If that's you, you can POST IN THIS THREAD if you are looking for a teammate, but feel free to try the PM route.

3. To turn the bystanders that simply READ these forums, into warlusting axis and allies championship contenders.  And get more people playing the game here.

The target will be 16 teams.  But we'll see how many we get.
 
All that said... let me begin in explaining, how this tournament is going to be run Smiley.

RULES
1. Garg is in charge, and is the sole administrator for resolving game conflicts (So get the F along), if tournament rules need to be clarifiied, or you have questions, comments, or suggesstions, direct them to ME.

2. ALL GAMES will be TripleA version 1.5.2.1 PBF - or Live Game (But you must atleast upload a save file to a thread)
      - All Games will be TEAM vs TEAM  That's either 2 OR 3 players per team, no larger.
      - All Games will be 1940 GLOBAL ALPHA 3.9+ NO BID.  Side will be determined by a die roll.
      - TECH IS OPTIONAL, both sides must agree, (Though I'm not 100% certain it is working yet)

3. TOURNAMENT IS DOUBLE ELIMINATION  That means you would have to lose TWICE before you are out.

4. WINNER takes home $200 (Or possibly more), Payment will be in USD, sent via Paypal, or Western Union.  You can split your winnings, donate them to AA.org, or the team leader can just take it all and backstab his team mates.

5. Regular Tournament concepts and common sense, like being courteous, and posting regularily etc APPLY, and are submit to my whim and wrath as previously explained in rule # 1.

6. This is the MOST IMPORTANT RULE.  In order to have a team that qualifies, atleast 1 player on the team, MUST BE NEW TO TRIPLEA.  And must be someone you don't know in real life.    You can demonstrate this by just telling me the truth, and making appropriate attempts to meet and draft new axis and allies players.  You must also name your team.  You can't be on more than one team, and no "making new accounts" for multiple entries.

7. for the purpose of entertainment, gargantua reserves the right, once per PBF game, at any time, to add a single unit, piece or facilitiy to the board, for one - or both sides.  gargantua also reserves the right to change players on a team at the start of a new game.  Part of winning this tournament, includes surviving ME.

Thanks Blood N Guts.

2 other things...

1.  I may enter my own tournament with a teammate.  Any disputes will be subject to objective ruling

2. ALL GAMES MUST REMAIN FRIENDLY, and your intention must be to play your opponent at thier best.  Ridiculous changes are too much,  but for the little things - let em slide.  Of course, come to me if there are problems, and I'll make the call.

Dearest Gamerman01,

YOU HAVE JUST BEEN OFFICIALLY DRAFTED FOR
GARGANTUA'S $200 TOURNAMENT OF EXTRA DEATH AND PAIN
.

IT'S WAR!  And from hence forth, you are now to call yourself a soldier of AA.org.

Your orders are to report to this (link below) section of the forums IMMEDIATELY, and follow said instructions.

http://www.axisandallies.org/forums/index.php?topic=27103.0

FAILURE to do so, will result in diminished social status on the site.  You will be considered 'un-cool'.  The time has come, you must fall in line!

NO EXCUSES will be accepted, whether you play the game or not, or whether you have the programs installed or not is irrelevant, you WILL succeed in your total conversion into an AA.org Championship contender.

MOVE OUT SOLDIER! MOVE! MOVE!

*General Garg salute's you!*

Feel free to copy and paste this, and send to random users to get them onto your team, and playing the game!

It's time for the draft!

Due to popular demand... I'm willing to come down from the rule that you musn't know the person in real life.

For example, if I convince Tall Paul to enter... I'd like to see his father come online and show us how the Battle of the Bulge was won!

Though I'm still encouraging everyone to get new players into the game!

Question: How will we split the countries? Can I give general advice to the guy? I hate to have to micro manage someone lol. When newbies play newbies... allies typically win because the axis drag the game out lol, but I could be wrong.

I don't know how the online play works but I just downloaded the map and I'm interested. Does everyone sit at their computers and play real time until the game is over or is the game played when people make moves over the course of a week, etc. ?

uhoh, never played global before....

I'm in though.


Also:

1. Tech is out.  Tech does not work in TripleA (well it does, but it uses AA50 tech, which is not good on the global map at all)

2. I'll release a new copy of Global 1940 soon, and everyone will have to download it for this tourney, so that everyone is using the same version.
