April/2021 1v1 EPIC Tournament with Mirrored Maps

Its all good. I wanted to play, but my future(play ability) is a bit uncertain right now. It’s safer for me to be on the sidelines as much as I want to be in the game.

Roger all that @Solfyre - the “disadvantage” of being the #1 seed - thanks for being gracious - please DO sign up early for the next tournament so someone has a chance to break your perfect record! :wink:

With a LOT of assistance from @Dysp and @Trucriot, I think we are ready to begin the carnage!
I want @Dysp to double-check my work on his tournament tracker, so I’ll post the link to that tomorrow.

Tournament Brackets and Round#1 games are now in the OP (and below) … please join your games as the SAME name as your Forum name. Let me know if any issues with the params and/or/maps.

Hi. Sure I have missed it somewhere, what’s the password?

1v1 should be the password. Have fun playing!

Quick question, is there an option to spectate the other games in progress in the tourney?
Just curious to see some of the other strategies out there without learning the “hard way”

The best way to get an overview (with clickable links to the games) is @Dysp’s Tournament Tracker which is now LIVE and also added to the OP.

You can only see an overview of the stats - you can’t see carriers and other details until the game is over.

First, good job @Lex and @ignaloidas who are already at Tick #126 … now THAT is how turn-based can be played if you aren’t too busy in RL.

The following players need to join their respective games - please see the first post.
@BelSon - @kinghuang - @TheLastHero - @Keeves

I’ve joined my game against @Macomber. I’ll send all two renown that I can offer for your speedy join. :slight_smile:

Such speed doesn’t come without downsides though… I’ve made quite a few sloppy mistakes handling my finances early on and now have to deal with the consequences. But my next few moves pan out, I might be out of the woods for a bit.

Haha, much appreciated - I am excited to play!

Me, too! Though, I realized during the first turn that I’ve completely forgotten how the 1v1 scenario is set up. :sweat_smile:

I’ve joined my game, will try to get my turn in soon.

And we’re off! This one has a really cool map- should be fun.

I’d like to be on the sub’s bench if you’ll have me.

Can someone give @Zatoc a nudge pls

@LeDazz - Good timing on asking to be on the Sub list since @Keeves hasn’t joined his game yet despite a couple of messages to 'em … so he might be super busy in RL. So if I don’t see him join in a day, I’ll have you take his place against @Sneferu

@suedenim - I can only “nag” players so much … and the opening move does take a while to figure things out … so hopefully he’ll submit before the 48-hour timeout.

Perfect… I dont know how often i will check back on here, but you can always drop me a message on discord if that’s easier! :slight_smile:

FYI that I have created/loaded games for Round #2 in the OP plus visible in the Tracker.
The Random Generator seemed “difficult” today so I had to generate a LOT of games to get eight that looked semi-decent. Those of you who have byes in the first round should join your respective games. And let me know if you have concerns about the map.
