2012 SSG Tournament No 1

Postby JSS » Sun Dec 11, 2011 1:47 am

Will be looking to start 2012 tournament No 1 on or around Jan 1.

Looking for player interest in which game should be first: BiN, BII, or Kharkov/ATD2.

First round of tourney will be from existing scenarios. If there's interest, second/third round of tourney will be from new variant scenrios.

Please send me PM if you're interested.

Sounds like a nice idea, but we'd have to pick scenarios where the result doesn't to a significant extend depend on luck (as in: no more stock Kharkov:DotD please, as my Lannaya syndrome is still there).

Having a non-luck tourney is part of the idea :)

Thinking:

Round 1: Mirror game of a small BiN scenario.

Round 2: Mirror game of a small BII/TAO5 scenario (St. Vith)

Round 3/4: Mirror game of a small, new ATD2 engine scenario (TBP)

That would cover 8 or 16 players. Rounds 3&4 could also be in BII (new scenarios) as this tourney isn't designed to preclude anyone who doesn't have ATD2 (newest Kharkov) engine.

Championship Prize will be a boxed set of the Band of Brothers TV series on DVD. (If champion only uses Blue-Ray, an alternate prize can be arranged).

Well, 'luck' or 'non-luck' is always part of the game of course :D .

So, how many players are we up to so far, do we need to get in touch with people to 'remind' them to check the forum? :wink: :D

Herr Noaskey,

Count is at four right now. Think 8 is minimum needed and 16 would be preferred (32 would be maximum).

I'm surprised Mr Talos doesn't appear on your list, I did drop him a note but maybe he's too busy (or scared of course :wink: :D ).

Yes, of course, it seems quite obvious that seeing your name on the entry list did, indeed, cause a good bit of fright in Herr Talos. Hope he is ok and not in need of medical treatment after such a fright. Oh, My :shock:
