Tournament system
There will be 6 rounds. We reserve the right to have one more if we're not winning. Wink Smiley

The majority voted in favour of Swiss style (yay), so I'll just take this opportunity to remind you how it works. Though wikipedia explains it better than I ever could.

In the first round players will be paired at random. The winners from this round will each gain one point. In the next round, we will try and pair you with someone with a similar number of points. This might not always be possible. For example, suppose there are 25 players on 2 points and 25 players on 3 points. Then 24 of those on 2 points will play each other (12 games in total), 24 of those on 3 points will play each other (12 games), and one player with 2 points will play one player with 3 points (1 game).

Things to note:

  • Your point total is cumulative throughout the tournament, it isn't possible to lose points.
  • You can't be "eliminated" from the tournament (but we reserve the right to kick you out for not playing your game :p). You're supposed to play all 6 rounds.
  • Hopefully, you'll be better matched with players around your own skill level by the end of the tournament.
  • The winner of the tournament is the player with the most points at the end. We need at least 6 rounds to determine a winner.
  • In the event of a match being tied (unlikely in 3 games but possible with moves like kamikaze), both players will receive half a point.
  • If there's an odd number of players, one player (somebody who isn't doing very well, where possible) will be given a free point.

At the start of each round, we'll post pairings for that week. I (or Randy) will try to post them some time on Monday, so check this subforum regularly. Each game should be played by midnight on Sunday, GMT. You have one week for each match. Each match in the round consists of 3 games with your given opponent. You don't have to play them all at once, but you have to play them within the week.

If you know in advance you're not going to be able to play some week (for a period of up to one week only), write a comment below telling us when, but do so before the tournament starts (11 April). We'll give you half a point for that week. If something crops up that you couldn't predict, well that's too bad (unless it's something exceptional! We'll use our own judgement in this case).

Posting match results

I'll create a new thread for each round with pairings. Just post the result as a comment, giving the name of each player and the result for each game. Links to the demos would be nice also.

Game scheme

We will use the Default game scheme with the following weapon set:
Default with the following changes:

  • 2 cluster bombs instead of 3
  • Unlimited Seduction and Mudball
  • No Cake, RC Plane, Portal, Dynamite
  • 1 rope instead of 3
  • 1 switch instead of 3
  • 1 girder delayed 3 turns instead of 3 undelayed girders

Everything else should remain at the default level, including delays and crate probabilities (so if you find Ballgun etc in a box, you can use it).

You can recreate this weapon set yourself by going into Config->edit weapon set, creating a copy of the Default weapon set and making the above changes. Call it "Tournament".

OR you can paste this line into weapons.ini on a new line by itself.

Tournament=9291929122099121031215109001200000000211100101011190405

11112

(I've had to insert new lines so it's visible, but you should remove these)

You'll find this file in ~/.hedgewars/ on Linux, C:\Users\yourname\Documents\Hedgewars on Windows and ~/Library/Application Support/Hedgewars/ on Mac.

Rules update

For the rest of the rules see http://hedgewars.org/node/2852. Some updates (things I've posted later in that thread):

  • In the first two games, the playing order should not be random. One player should go first first game, then second in the second game. If a third game is required, it should be played with a random playing order.
  • Version 0.9.15 should be used for all games.

Demos

Please keep demos for all games you play. It's easiest just to go to Config and turn on "Append date and time to record file name", so it will save all demos for you automatically. You can then find them in ~/.hedgewars/Demos on Linux, C:\Users\yourname\Documents\Hedgewars\Demos on Windows and ~/Library/Application Support/Hedgewars/Demos on Mac. By default, only the last game is saved, so if you don't turn on this option and try to upload your games at the end of the match, you'll only find the last one!

Please upload all demos to the hedgewars site (click on the "Demos" button at the top). In the title, write something along the lines of claymore vs Randy, Round 4 Game 1.

Anyone can upload the demos for a match, but ultimately the winner of the match is responsible! (I supposed the loser would rather try and forget about the games.)

Arranging your match

Check your hedgewars.org private messages regularly. You can post contact details in one of the threads in the private "Tournament" subforum (but don't post them here as these forums are publicly viewable). Email and IM will also be useful. You can often catch me on IRC (click "Live chat").

For setting up games, we found Doodle useful last time. When creating a calendar, use the times you are most likely to be available as options. Enable setting "might be available" for times (or whatever it's called).

Match schedule

Subject to change, but:
Round 1: 11 April - 17 April
Round 2: 18 April - 24 April
Round 3: 25 April - 1 May
Round 4: 2 May - 8 May
Round 5: 9 May - 15 May
Round 6: 16 May - 22 May

Ok, I think that covers everything. Feel free to post any questions, comments, complaints etc below. Most importantly, have fun! Big Grin

I can't actually see any of the pics either. Just get a pic of a frog in ice telling me register my domain or something.

What needs to be done to fix?

Hehe I found it accidentally Smile

It was on my D drive not C Smile

Edit: And very important question. What about number of hedges? Is it obligatory to use full teams (8vs8)? or maybe 4vs4 ?

If you refer back the rules on the initial post, you'll find buried in there somewhere that it's 4v4.

6 rounds and 1 point to gain every turn so 6 points is max all over the tournament?

And pairings will be published where and when?

And my small idea: The results of this tournament should be key for the next one (I mean parrings)

Question 1)-Yes, it will be so if there is no accident.

2)- The 11th of April, but probably here or in another forum which will be announced.

3)-Me too i think that

You're right, my sincerest apologies! I'm not quite sure how this happened, but I checked numbers against Randy's list in the first thread; he had 54 also (but now seems he missed out jose1711).

That means we have an odd number of players, so you'll now play Espinet instead of me. I've updated the pairings.

Please fix the line, it includes dynamite and only one seduction.

Thanks BM, I had no idea. I'd already lost count of the number of games I've screwed up so far...
