AA50-41 PBF Tourney Discussion (Sign-up - Closed)


  • Moderator

    Rules:

    PBF
    1941 Setup
    NO’s = YES
    Tech = NO
    NO BIDS (sides chosen by random roll)
    Abattlemap and in house dicey

    The rest of the Rules will be posted in the Tournament forum as is gets closer to the start date.

    The tentative start will be Late Feb.  I’d like to give at least 2-3 weeks for sign up unless it fills up really quick.  Daily moves will not be required, but players will be expected to keep up a rapid pace, meaning games should be completed in 4-5 weeks.

    Now, before the Tech people get upset, the Tech tourney will be later in the year (late summer or fall).

    I chose the 41 setup b/c that seems to be getting more play.

    (Please copy and paste list into your post)

    Yes, count me in.
    I’ve just started playing online and I am really enjoying it.  Thanks to everyone for the help and my apologies to Jennifer who I ripped on about online AA games.  Even though I think FTF is still better, PBF/online has been both convienient and enjoyable.  Thanks again.

    Questions:
    What is the 1-10 order?  A ranking or something or just a place spot?  Is this a single elimination tourny or Swiss style??
    Of the 2 new optional rules Larry gave us in his updated FAQs (Jan 12th), what will be used?  Will we use the escort rule and/or the Black Sea closed rule or none of them???

    The order has nothing to do with anything.  I’m hoping we’ll get 16 for a nice even bracket.  Brackets will be drawn at random (think NCAA tournament).  Yes, single elimination.  No for the 2 new optional rules.

    We will go beyond 16 if players still keep signing up.  The next target would obviously be 32, but anything between 16 and 32 would probably require some people to have “byes” which would be done by random roll.



  • @DarthMaximus:

    NO BIDS (sides chosen by random roll)

    Please, clarify this. It means:

    1. Roll dies, higher plays axis
    2. Roll dies, higher chooses side

    wich one?

    Anyway, I’ll play

    I’ll do the rolling when I make up the random brackets.  Once I’ve got all the games set up, I’ll just do an in-house roll, something like, if I roll a “1” then Player A is Axis and a “2” means Player B is Axis.  So it’ll be a 50/50 shot, and I’ll do that for each game.



  • Yep, it’s better (adds speed)

  • I’m in I suppose, but this will be my first PBF game unless someone responds to my find player post.  I was hoping to be able to play at least 1 PBF game before this tournament kicked off.

    Now that we have a full dance card, how 'bout giving us newbies a little handicap when paired with the old heads? Say, like a two turn head start before our opponents attack? Yeah, that’s the ticket… 😄



  • DM said we will go beyond 16 and try for 32 if players keep signing up.  I guess I’ll be the one to add the extra slots on the sign-up:

    where is bigdog and morden?



  • I’ve never played online before, but I have played a lot FTF (the local Denny’s knows us all by name and gives us our own tables). Could someone explain how it works so I know whether or not to join?
