The August 2020 1v1 EPIC Tournament - now with a Second Chance Cup [2CC]!
As discussed in the main tournament thread, I wanted to offer a second chance for players who missed the sign-up period or were out in the first round - to play and gain further experience in this unique 1v1 setting.
G7 W5 vs W6
To ensure round congruency the number of late-joiners was limited to (8 - x) * 2 where x is the number of main-joiners.

Although the game is turn-based with a 48h deadline, please make sure you have enough time to keep the game moving along at a steady pace, i.e. at least two submits a day, preferably more (as it’s 1v1, the game will move forward in absence of your opponent after you submit and you can submit your next turn already.
Here’s all settings deviating from the default:
- Stars For Victory: 66%
- Turn Based: On
- Tick to Jump Each Turn: 6 Tick Jumps
- Turn Deadline: 48 Hours
- Dark Galaxy: Disabled
- Stars Per Player: 64 Stars, Epic
- Home Star Distance: Far
- Starting Stars: 1
- Starting Credits: $2000
- Starting Ships Per Star: 100 Ships
- Starting Economy: 20
- Starting Industry: 20
- Starting Science: 4
- Cost Science: Cheap
- Cost Experimentation: None
- Cost Manufacturing: Expensive
- Cost Banking: Cheap
- Cost Weapons: None
- Starting Weapons: Level3
Each map will be mirrored so the two players will have the exact same starting position. Some of these maps may play very differently than others and have weird quirks, but that main point stands
Looking forward to some good competition!
