I hoist the white flag and congratulate Hans.
(BTW in the battle of Moscow, I misclicked when selecting casualties, I wanted a tank to survive instead of a fighter. That doesn’t matter for the outcome but explains why I persisted in the attack).
See details below for an 8 player G40 Alt-Universe tournament to be played over the Forum starting in early 2022.
If you’re interested in joining please respond below or send @Contango a private message. There are currently 3 spaces available and priority will be given to the earliest responses.
Players should randomly chose who will bid first. The initial bid should be in the form of “Alliance: #” where “Alliance” is either Axis or Allies and “#” is the IPC bid. The opponent should then either:
o Approve the bid
o Offer a lower # value (including into negative values)
If a lower value is offered, then the decision will revert to the other player. This process should be repeated until a player approves a bid offered by their opponent.
When a bid is approved, the player who made it has purchased the right to play the alliance from the initial bid for the compensation of the agreed IPCs.
If the IPC bid is positive, it will go to the alliance from the initial bid. If the IPC bid is negative it will go to the opposite alliance as a positive value.
Spending the Bid:
Bid IPCs can either be allocated to the treasuries of the nations from the alliance receiving them or spent on additional units in the starting setup as follows:
@Contango will serve as rules and tournament moderator and will have ultimate decision authority over any rule/game/tournament dispute.
Thread title should include the names of both players, which side they are playing and that it is a G40 Alt-Universe game.
Bid units should be declared in the first post of the thread.
The first round is now up and running with the below matchups.
