To get the Ball rolling here can we get 1 more Person, I will start this thing with 10 people or any even Number beyond that.

Since The Judge is On Vacation until the 17th of JULY, And I am holding this tourny in celebration of Task Force. The Admirals Draft will be Held
JULY 20th.  I will make a thread and Lock it like ND did with the forum mini Admirals Cup. I will then Unlock the thread at a certain time of Day which all of you will know what time that will be well in Advance. (need my work Schedule, to make sure I am home to unlock thread)

Or if ND wants to he can be in charge of unlocking it, since I am participating and that would give me an unfair Advantage, cause I would be able to post first with ease.

If you would like to participate, feel free to sign up. I would like a total of 16 people (wishful thinking I think)

Raeder,

One important question is, will we have to handle any maps? I can hardly download a picture, much less do a map so I am wondering what we're supposed to do if I play Packertim or anyone else who doesn't know how to do the maps?

Please advise. I am looking forward to playing online again.

Thanks

I am just figuring out the map situation myself.

If you have MS Paint it is easy to do.  I will provide you with the Game maps, and al you guys have to do is edit the Text(Unit Names) on the map.  I will try to help those out that really have no idea how to do a map

I'll help out with maps. But i'd rather help someone help themselves.
If you have a photo editor you are able to do maps.
You'll also need a Photobucket account, IT IS FREE so please sign up.

We have some dedicated people here.  We can still have a league, just with fewer entrants,  Look at MLB.  Before they expanded with Mets and so on they did not even have double digit number of teams in the al or nl.

Today is July 20. I will be gone pretty much all day to a gaming convention among other things.

What time is the draft and what happens if everyone is not present? This going to be tough to pull off I think and with some of us computer illiterate, it will be even tougher with the maps.

you could have everyone roll 4 dice to determine draft order and then everyone could draft with a one day limit over the next couple of weeks.  Which fleet did I pick?  Did I send you a fleet?  Is it 300 pts?  Some admirals have reduced costs for units.  Shouldn't we determine admirals first?

did we choose a nation?  If so which did I choose?  Is any admiral allowed to go with any nation?  Is it going to be 300 pts in a fleet?

This will be an Axis or Ally  Tourney.

Example
If you choose a Admiral from UK, That is YOUR Nation.
You may however use other Allied Units.

Your Admiral does not give any benifit to "Foriegn" Units. Also You have to pay 2 additional pts, for units not from your Home Country. Your UK admiral can have Wildcats, but you must pay 2 extra pts for them each.

Another example.
I pick Donitz, I may use Japanese Carriers and Aircraft, but at a cost of 2 pts more for each unit taken that is not German.

My Donitz Fleet consists of I-19's and U boats.  Only the U boats gain any Benifit from Donitz.

French Admirals- If you pick one of these, you must declare if you are fighting as an Axis or Allied Player. This is the side you will fight on for the remainder of the tourney.



You will know your Fleet size for each game and what the map will look like before the game is played.

All fleets will use WoTc cards.  SET I and Task Force will both be exceptable for use.

No Forum mini cards  (srry ND)

Also, Historical Limits will Apply. But only to the game at hand.

Example:  If I am UK, I may only Deploy 1 HMS Hood. But I can buy 2 of them, or 3,4....

The way this will work as mentioned before,

1 Draft for Admirals
2 We will post our Navies  To Evil Kobra  
Quote:

At the Start of tourney, Players will PM there 300pt Fleets to me. After I have recieved all Fleets I will openly Display for all to see.
All Players also start the tourney with 100pts in reserve for Task force Units. If a player wants to save some points for Task force Units, They may do so but up to a max of 50. And this must be stated when they submit their Fleet Form.

Any unit lost during any match, is lost for rest of tourney. Damaged/crippled units start next game as Normal if Chosen, Crippled Units with 5 or more Hull Pts and used in next game, start game with 1 pt of Damage.


I wrote this with the intentions of starting  a few weeks before release. And having More players
So...

--Ammendment #1
Build a 400pt Fleet. No more then 150 pts may be spent on Task Force Units. (one of you might already have them? Evil or Very Mad ) And PM that list.

3 Opponents will be selected Randomly
4 Games Begin  Very Happy

If your not familiar with the Die Roller, Now is the time to Practice Rolling Eyes

If you can do maps, I would Greatly Appreciate the Help. That Inventation is extended to anyone willing to help out their Buddy.
( My Map Making skills are weak, but using Image shack Helps)

Since there is a Odd number of Brackets, and this is  Double elimination,
There are a winners and losers bracket.

The strongest "Loser" will fight the weakest "Winner"
Strength will be determined on How Many Pts you have lost from Unit Losses collectively through tournament. Unit Cost = pts.

In the event that there are 3 "Losers" left and 1 "Winner"left the 2 Weakest Losers will have a "playoff". Losses incured during this match are NOT Lost for remainder of tourney. you may use those Units as normal next match. If you lose this Match, Your Done.

If someone will help me learn to do maps, I will make acommitment to try hard to learn it. But a word of caution;  you must be very directive. It took me an hour to learn to use the dice roller.

Now, if I understand the rules correctly, as long as you stay in the winners bracket, your losses carry forward.  But with your 400 points you need to purchase reserve units.  How many points will the battles actually involve?

Am I remembering correctly that Admirals can be lost during an engagement?  And this carries forward, also.

I am in the same boat as Packertim. I have no idea how to do a map but am willing to learn with directions in English, not in computer speak. This might be difficult. i perused the tutorial on map handling in the online matches forumn and closed it after reading the first paragraph, it made my head hurt. I'm a tweener, I can't help it.  Crying or Very sad

I'll practice with the dice roller also but let me warn you waaaay in advance, your format for this is changing daily it seems, now it's 400 points, Task Force can be used but something about only 150 points of your fleet? PM the fleet to you or Evil Kobra? But then you can change it after or is this the fleet you use for the entire tournament? Reserve points? I am confused.

I would really like to participate in this if you guys have the time and patience to have me in it.
