Your Email address that you want the tournament PBEM files sent to
And attached your BIN profile to the email item


The Battles In Normandy Medal will be awarded for participation in this Tournament - if you dont have one yet then here is your chance.

Other rules and things you should be aware of:

- All players must be registered on the Run5 Combat Leagues Ladder
- All games must be based upon the most recent patch available at the commencement of each Round (so in other words if a new patch is made available mid Tournament then all players must adopt and install that new patch when they commence their next round).

- All games must be played in PBEM Security Mode

- Combat advisor must be set to on
- All other settings must be set to Normal
- Round 1 opponents will be randomly selected by the Tournament Master/Run5 staff, and once annouced are final
- Subsequent round opponents will be determined by previous round winners
- Players should not register and enter the tournament unless they are able to completed a turn at least each 2-3 days. Preferrably 1 turn a day if possible.
- All players should seek to keep to the above time frames - or Run5 staff/Tournament Master may determine a winner based upon the circumstances of the case if any games are significantly delaying the progress of the Tournament.
- These games are automatically eligible for reporting on the Run5 Combat Leagues Ladder - at the discretion of the winner.
- The winner will be declared Run5 'Breakout' Champ.. until the next Tournament.

Would suggest a max 32 players.

And keep a record of the scores of completed games.

If it turns out it is unbalanced, perhaps play mirror games of the 2 semi-finals and the final

You don't need to complete the games to have a score.
Just mention turn number, side playing, current score and projected score.
This can give some information on the balance of the game.
Playing mirror games for the last rounds seems fair and should be done if the scenario favors one side.

I know it’s just that most people either forget or don't want to give up those details that you ask for... and someone has to remind everyone from time to time, as well as administrate it.

I think that we already would have a lot of threads with end game scores if the idea were practical...
