Gary Grigsby’s War in the West: Operation Torch Tournament

Post by Daniele »

The time to prove your skills on the battlefield has finally come!

We are setting up a great Gary Grigsby’s Operation Torch Tournament and we are inviting you all to take part in this event! Please note that the base game Gary Grigsby’s War in the West and the Operation Torch expansion are required for participation, as this tournament uses a scenario from Operation Torch.

The first round will start on December 14, 2015 so sign up and start practicing!

It would not be right to have a tournament without prizes, so of course you will not only be fighting for glory and bragging rights! To make things more appetizing, some nice prizes are also up for grabs!


To apply you have only to reply to this forum thread,

Please read through the rules below:


[center]Gary Grigsby’s War in the West: Operation Torch Tournament
[/center]

1. We are accepting a maximum of 16 players for this tournament. You may sign up for the tournament through the forum. Applications will be accepted in the order received.

2. There will be three rounds total, the initial round, a semi-final round for the top 4 players, and a final round for the winners of the semi-finals.

3. The tournament scenario will be played twice in each round, once per side against the same opponent (thus 2 games in each round). These games should be played simultaneously.

4. The scenario to be played is Rommel Attacks 43 (5 turns) using the PBEM++ (server) system. Upload and Download ratios will be monitored to ensure fair games.

5. Unless arranged with your opponent and the tournament staff beforehand, Players must complete their turns within 48 hours of the time that their opponent completed their last turn or they forfeit. If your opponent forfeits, you will receive the minimum “Minor Victory” level for the scenario in terms of your victory point ratio.

6. Players must provide their user login names so tournament officials can check final scores on the server.

7. Players are welcome to post AARs of any of their games on the Matrix forum.

8. Prizes to be awarded:

1st place: $ 100 Matrix Games Store voucher

2nd place: $ 50 Matrix Games Store voucher

Two runners up: $ 25 Matrix Games Store voucher



The First Round (16 Players)

1. The first round games will begin no later than December 14, 2015, and must be completed by January 4, 2016

2. Each player will be matched randomly with an opponent for the first round

3. The top 4 players from the first round will be determined by comparing the total number of points scored during both games as a ratio of friendly points to enemy points. The players with the 4 highest ratios will advance to the semi-final.



The Semi-Final Round (4 Players)
1. The player with the highest ratio from the First Round will play the player with the 4th highest ratio, with the 2nd and 3rd highest players playing each other.

2. The semi-final round will begin by January 6, 2016 and must be completed no later than January 26, 2016.

You have provided the proper impetus for me to go ahead and buy Torch before wrapping up my ongoing games.
Count me in.

If both players agree to play with the latest Beta version is that OK or must it be latest official update? Sorry if I missed this point somewhere.

We expect that the current public beta will become official before the tournament starts. The next public beta won't be due until January. So we expect to be using the .12 version, at least for the first round.
