We are ready for the Beta for the first Fantasy General II Tournament.
We are in need of willing testers who will help us in making sure that the Slitherine Tournament system that we are adapting for Fantasy General II is working correctly.
What is the Tournament system?
It is an automated matchmaking system. Players who join a tournament will be automatically paired with their opponent, following Swiss tournament rules. Paired games will be created by the system, and players only have to worry about playing their rounds.
You can read more on the Tournament system here.
How can I join?
Fantasy General II is the first Slitherine game that allows you to join directly from the game's menu.
All you need to do is follow this procedure:
- Make sure you install the Tournament Beta version of Fantasy General II on Steam by right clicking on the game from your Steam Library, click on Properties, click on Betas, select "tournament" from the scroll down menu, and let Steam download the update. If you can't see the "tournament" branch, try restarting Steam and it should appear.
- Run the game, click on Multiplayer, then on the Tournaments symbol, and click on Join (you will need to be logged in with a Slitherine account; if you don't have one, you can just register a new one for free)
When does the Tournament start?
The Tournament Beta will begin on Monday 22 June at 11 am BST. It will consist of 3 rounds, each lasting 40 hours. Players will be notified automatically when the rounds have started, and when it is their turn to submit their rounds.
Please feel free to reach out to us if you are having issues with joining the Tournament. And good luck!
