ANON. SUPER PASTIS 01-07 Tourney RULES & SignUp Closed

Postby dib » 03 Jun 2019, 12:46

Hi

*** Newsflash
ADD YOUR NAME TO THIS THREAD TO BE CONSIDERED FOR ROUND 2 - we will probably need some help to get back to our quorum of 21 players. A good result could still get you in the final.

Its interesting how the variant affect tactics and was used this year at the WDC in Marseilles so if they use it again it best not to go in blind...

***



THE TOURNAMENT HAS STARTED... anonymous random invitations will come from Caladrius for Round 2

SINCE we have had some auto-surrenders - we have amended the RULES

For avoidance of doubt and make it clear that players in other games in the tournament are ineligible to act as replacements.

[*]AutoSurrenders mean disqualification from tourney
[*]No joining tournament games for those already participating in other games.

Please add your name if you would like to play in round two/ THIS WILL BE A BIG HELP

The ROUND 1 Games are here
159267. PDT 01-07 A 7/7 https://www.playdiplomacy.com/game_play ... _id=159267
159268. PDT 01-07 B 7/7 https://www.playdiplomacy.com/game_play ... _id=159268
159269. PDT 01-07 C 7/7 https://www.playdiplomacy.com/game_play ... _id=159269


I made 3 quick videos of the games you can see here (4-5 mins)

Round 1 Game A- https://youtu.be/HV1xyvMfqyQ
Game B - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXcFbnOSiqQ
Game C - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulyIUO1hNyo

My suggestion is that you follow each game. As you may wish to temper your strategy according to the qualifying rules.

We follow the rules of the FTF variants.
At the WDC in Marseilles these are the rules ( Modified so its TWO ROUNDS)

Summary :
Each game will length 7 years, including 7 turns of Spring and 7 turns of Fall. AND RETREATS
The scoring system is the Super Pastis.
Qualification for Top board : Best score 100% + Second score 80%
Tourney ...World Champion : 1st of the Top Board
Final Score : Best score 100% + Second score 80% + Third score 60% (DOES THIS CREATE TWO CHAMPIONS WE WILL SEE)

Add an extra NICKNAME to your handle for extra fun!!!

ALL GAMES END AFTER RETREAT 1907

Scoring is as follows

1. Scoring System

The scoring system is the Super Pastis
If a player solos (18centres or more)
The player who solos scores 102 points (the double pastis). The other players score 1 point per year played.

For games without a solo where there is a single player who tops the board
All eliminated get 1 point for each year before elimination.
All survivors receive 10 points plus 2 points for each center at the end of the game.

Bonuses:
- The players within 3 centers of the highest center count get a bonus of 3 points
- The players within 2 centers of the highest center count get a bonus of 6 points
- The players within 1 center of the highest center count get a bonus of 12 points
- The player with the top score get a bonus of 51 points minus the second highest point score in the game.

For games without a solo where two or more players share the top center count
All eliminated get 1 point for each year before elimination.
All survivors gets 10 points plus two points for each center at the end of the game.

Bonus are awarded as below with x equal to the number of players sharing the top center count :
- The players within 3 centers of the top center count get 3/x bonus points
- The players within 2 centers of the top center count gets 6/x bonus points
- The players within 1 center of the top center count gets 12/x bonus points
- The players sharing the top center count get 48/x bonus points

1. SuperPastis has kindly put up the scoring system in this thread. Added here.
2. We will score games in Fall 1907 after retreats and then game can carry on or end naturally or the admins can end game. Hopefully DIAS end of game.
3. Sign up here we should try and get 21 players + to run a tournament we could have two rounds then a final top board and maybe a 2nd silver medal board UEFA cups style-y.
4. Sign up here with your self appointed nickname I would love to play anonymous as it makes it lot more fun but we need to check with site owner if this is ok
5. Round 2 invitations are going out this week 23 Sep /19
6. To keep things moving I propose 2-1-1 deadlines but no move weekends
7. Games are unranked.
8. We will get someone to act as gatekeeper and they are not in it to set up so its anonymous_players. (CALADRIUS has kindly agreed to help LOOK OUT for mail)

I would recommend you set up the games here as Unrated, as the Super Pastis system is very different than the scoring system here. You don’t want people pushing for a “3-way” or “4-way” when draw size is supposed to be meaningless.
