The first tournament for Mare Nostrvm is here! 16 brave captains and sailors are requested for this competition but beware. The Gods of the Abysses are eager to receive some sacrifice so be sure to not be part of them!

You’ll fight three of the major naval battles fought during the bitter years of the Great Roman Civil War (49–31 BC): Tauris, Naulochus and Actium.

To enter, go to the tournament page HERE!

The general tournament rules can be found HERE!



The first round will commence on Tuesday, the 5th of December 2017. No further entries can be accepted after the tournament has begun.



Specific tournament rules:
This tournament will involve 3 rounds. The battles will feature a progressive level of complexity, from the lowest to the highest.

Round 1: Tauris: Caesareans versus Pompeians, 47 BC, Low complexity

Round 2: Naulochus: Caesareans versus Pompeians, 36 BC, Medium

Round 3: Actium: Caesareans versus Antonians, 31 BC, High

Games are paired, so each matchup will be played both ways. First round pairings will be selected randomly, subsequent rounds using the Swiss Chess system. Nobody will play the same opponent in more than one round.

Round times and timing out:
Each round will last 10 days. The minimum number of turns for a full score is 4 and for active players is 2.

The challenge points are 100, and it will be split between the contenders depending on the final result of the battle, being a draw 50-50, and a total victory 100-0.

Here are some historical references per the chosen battles.

http://www.heritage-history.com/index.php?c=resources&s=war-dir&f=wars_caesarcivil

Battle of Tauris - 47 BC ( Caesareans vs Pompeians ) Caesareans Victory

Fought between the Pompeian fleet, under Marcus Octavius, and the Caesareans, under Publius Vatinius.
The Caesarean fleet consisted of merchant vessels, temporarily equipped with beaks, but Vatinius, though his ships were inferior both in number and quality, boldly attacked the Pompeians, and after severe fighting, completely defeated them, compelling Octavius to abandon the Adriatic.

Battle of Naulochus - 36 BC ( Caesareans vs Pompeians ) Caesareans Victory

Fought September 3, B.C. 36, between the Pompeian fleet of 300 ships, under Sextus Pornpeius, and the fleet of the Triumvirs, of equal strength, under Agrippa.
The action was severely contested, but in the end Agrippa was victorious, and Pompeius fled with 17 vessels only.

Battle of Actium - 31 BC ( Caesareans vs Antonians ) Caesareans Victory

Fought between the fleet of Antony, 460 galleys, and that of Octavius, about 250 sail, but much lighter and less well manned than those of Antony.
The battle was fiercely contested, with varying fortune; but at a critical moment Cleopatra ordered the Egyptian admiral to make sail, and with 60 galleys withdrew from the fight.
She was followed by Antony, and his fleet, discouraged by his flight, surrendered after ten hours' fighting.
The Octavians captured 300 galleys, and 5,000 Antonians fell in the action. A few days later Antony's land army of 120,000 men laid down their arms.

Looks like I just missed this once, as I am new to the Matrix games and these forums.

Hopefully, I will make the next tournament.
