7 game gunboat tourney?

Postby cspieker » 17 May 2011, 23:35

Hey all,
I know there is a gunboat tourney already going on, but I am seeing if there is any interest in this.

I saw there were some 7-game tourneys in the past, but gunboat would seem perfect for this. Here is what I would envision

7 games - 7 players (or multiple of 7), each player gets each power.

Start all 7 games at roughly the same time.

All games no-rank
All games DIAS
All games 24/24/24

Scoring will be detour98 but then there will be a normalization at the end, normalizing for country so that you will get more points if you do better at a certain country than everybody else.
So for example, say the detour98 scores for Italy for each player are I1, I2, I3, I4, I5, I6 and I7. Then player 1's "Italy score" will be I1/(I1+I2+I3+I4+I5+I6+I7) x 100.




We will add all the country scores up for each player and see who is the winner.

Any interest in this? Post here or PM me.



players expressing interest:

Seve
zebb
palin
posiduck
Lucifer's_hammer
EasyRider
Maucat
Mal
Peanut

That's 11 so far. Yay! :P


We could use more. I figured out that there really is no reason for having a multiple of 7. You just won't play the same 6 others in every one of your 7 games, but it should all even out pretty well.

I'll send out pm's to get people to confirm this next week. Hopefully we'll start soon!

I'm up for any chance to spank that Monkey (but for free, yeah). I mean, you think I would pay for that? It's not even fluffy!

Splendid!

The way I am envisioning it I realize now that it doesn't need to be a multiple of seven players.

But so far, we are not very close to seven! Anybody else out there interested?

What would be really cool is if we could start off at least one game with a live segment. Even an hour would be cool.

That would be the perfect way for me to start gunboat games. I'm in - someone has to take the last place...
Sooner or later the man who wears two faces forgets which one is real... and thus a stabbing occurs!

Thanks for the interest guys. Just a quick update. I thought I should check with Rick to make sure this wouldn't interfere with other tournaments he is running. He hasn't answered yet. He must be really busy or something lately. Anyway, once I hear back or a couple of days rolls around I am going to try to advertise this tourney a little more vigorously and see if we can't fill it out (7 or more players).

Oh, and I updated the original post to include that it will be DIAS.
