yup... its not elimination, just the ships that are sunk each match dont come back, lovely attrition!

... so its a long grind tourney, which is cool if your playing a IJN/USN fleet that lost its Yamato/Iowa in a previous match! (not that Im praying for that mind you... but its a nice thought for a kriegsmarine fleet!).

Oh, I was under the impression that only the winners bracket carried over.  That the losers bracket started fresh.  So I did not see how they could meet again down the road.  I won't worry about, and just concentrate on picking a better fleet next time.  And you are right! You never know how good/bad your luck can be.  I saw a person defending with 1 die in Risk roll 9 straight 6's one time.  And one game I did better than that 5/10.  I hit 10 out of 16 torps.  Not much a person can dowhen it turns.

Once your surface fleet is gone i believe it is game over anyway, thats why i thought it was a risk in taking 1 boat.

Double elimination Tourney

Victory in the first rd is acheived at 75 VP's

He only had 72, thats why we kept Playing. This is where retreating comes in.

If you lose a Game in the Winners Bracket, you move to the 1 loss Bracket. If you lose in this Bracket, You are done for the rest of Tourney.

Leagues will start as soon as Rumble is over, I promise.  Very Happy

That is exactly the reason why We started with Small fleets. So you don't lose a 1/4 of your Fleet in the first rd. If you make it to the Finals, Your looking at 6-7 Games Played with only 400 pts to pick from.

So it is Possible that you could be playing a 150 pt match but only have 100 pts worth of units Left as an Example. Timing and Survival is Key for units in this tourny.

Next rd will be a 75pt Match
The map will have 3 Objectives


Yes the 1 loss Bracket gets to play the no loss Bracket and need to win twice in Finals "winners 1 time"
The Weakest "winner" plays the "Strongest" Loser. Total Points Lost from Unit Loss. A Strong "loser" has not lost Many Units pt wise. A Weak Winner is the player Who has Lost the Most Points Unit wise.
