Field of Glory II: Medieval - First Blood Tournament

Published on February 17, 2021


We are pleased to announce the first Field of Glory II: Medieval public tournament.

This will be played using the normal Multiplayer system and our automated tournament system, anyone who has the game can enter.  


To enter, go to the tournament page: Here

The general tournament rules can be found: Here 


The first round will commence on Monday 1st March at 10.00 am GMT. No further entries can be accepted after the tournament has begun. 


This tournament will involve five rounds. Each round will last 14 days. The battles will be Medium-sized custom battles:  

  • England 1066 AD: Norman 1041-1071 AD vs English 1066 (Anglo-Saxon). North European Agricultural.   
  • Flanders 1214 AD: French 1155-1319 AD vs German (Imperial) 1200-1319 AD. North European Agricultural.   
  • Estonia 1223 AD: Danish 1200-1319 AD with Baltic Tribes 1050-1319 allies vs Teutonic Order 1226-1319. (Representing the Livonian Brothers of the Sword). North European Marshy. 
  • Ukraine 1223 AD: Russian 1155-1264 AD with Cuman 1180-1394 allies vs Mongol (Europe) 1223-1241 AD. Steppe. 
  • Lower Austria 1260 AD: Hungarian 1200-1319 AD vs Bohemian 1200-1319 AD. North European Agricultural. 


Games are paired, so each matchup will be played both ways. Each player will be able to choose his forces using the normal force selection system. In each round, all players will be playing on the same randomly generated map for both games. 

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. 


The scoring system is as follows: 

If a game runs to the turn limit, each side scores points equal to the enemy % routed at the turn limit. If the game times out, adjustments may be made, depending on how far the game has progressed and who took longer over their turns – see below. 

If one army breaks, the victorious player scores 60 points plus the difference between the enemy % routed and his own % routed. The loser scores points equal to the winner's % routed. 



1) If Ben defeats Tamas's army, and has inflicted 45% routed on Tamas, and Tamas has inflicted 15% on Ben, Ben will score 60 + (45 – 15) = 90, Tamas will score 15.  

2) However, if Ben defeated Tamas’s army by inflicting 62% routed on Tamas, and Tamas had inflicted 56% routed on Ben, Ben would get 60 + (62 – 56) = 66 points, and Tamas would get 56.  

3) If the game is unfinished (or it reached the turn limit) with Ben inflicting 20% routed on Tamas, and Tamas inflicting 10% routed on Ben, Ben would score 20, and Tamas would score 10. (Provided that between them they have played at least 24 turns in all – see below). 

Note that this system rewards aggressive play over desultory skirmishing. If you rout an enemy unit then hide for the rest of the game, both players will get extremely low scores - lower than if they played hard and lost. 



If an odd number of players sign up for the tournament, one player will get a bye in each round. In the first round this is random. In subsequent rounds it will be the player with the lowest score. The score for a BYE is 75 points for each game.


Round times and timing out: 

Each round will last 14 days. Any battles that are not completed by the end of the round will be timed out. The player who has had the game in his “My Turns” box the longest overall will be the one who is deemed to be timed out. This will not normally incur any penalties, unless insufficient turns have been played: If the timed-out player has played less than 24 turns, his score will be reduced proportionately, and his opponent will be granted the BYE score if it exceeds his current score. If the timed-out player has played less than 6 turns, he will not be included in the draw for the next round. This is to prevent someone else’s enjoyment being spoiled by being drawn against someone who has apparently dropped out of the tournament.
