Oldies vs. Whippersnappers!

Postby QueenOfHearts » 22 Apr 2010, 03:35

The plot has been flying thick and thicker, but no action is being taken!

The idea of a tournament has been thrown around. I think that's a great idea. Here is the sort of format I'm thinking of.

    I'm thinking it should be run like the doubles tournament...

    Each group will pick 3 of their (best) members to represent them.
    There will be 1 Civil Disorder (CD).
    There will be a total of 3 games played, with the total number of Tournament Points (TP) for each team deciding who wins.

How does that sound? I think that it will HAVE to be anonymous, otherwise it will result in meta-gaming.

Comments, suggestions needed and welcome.

Who let this youngster in?

Who's up for this triples game?

I've no problem with it being anonymous, but since you know who's on your own side it won't take even the inexperienced and callow youth to work out who's on the other! Clearly no rank, and perhaps we should play a complete series of variants - even including Fleet Rome!!

Why no rank? If it's anonymous we won't know who s who.

I think that the speed deadlines for the oldies should be every 3 days while the deadlines for the whippersnappers should be every 12 hours.

If we're teams of 3 the amount of metagaming will be enormous! See the Doubles tournament. And no way would Rick allow it ranked!

That's actually perfect for me. I'll take you up on that.
Do you hear the people sing,
Lost in the valley of the night,
It is the music of a people,
Who are climbing to the light,

For the wretched of the earth,
There is a flame that never dies,
Even the darkest night must end,
And the sun will rise
