Cap'n Brunson's Oops All Travel Cancelled Vassal Tournament! 9am EST Registration!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Did you block off Friday & Saturday for Worlds, but can't go?

Got a LOT of free time on your hands now?

Wish you could play against international competition anyway in a real-time tournament?

Somehow I got @Karneck to agree to be the judge for this, the most casual and REAL TIME of Vassal Tournaments!

D1 Starts Friday 27th at 10am EST.  D2 Starts Saturday 28th at 10 EST.

3 hour rounds (because Vassal moves SLOW)

3 rounds on D1, 2 Rounds D2, then cut to Top 4!

Standard Tournament Rules otherwise!  Casual AF so me and Karneck can play in it if we get an even number of players.

 

This is a gauge your interest post.  I'll get more rules and figure out the tournament list submissions or whatever when it's not after midnight.

 

 

Registration opens at 9am EST and closes at 10am EST

Perhaps, as long as we maintain the requisite two meters between us...

😂

We'll do it in my strata rec room, lots of space. I might even have hand sanitizer! :D

Even better, maybe if we get matched, we could play with real tiny plastic space ships!

I don't think its super fast or intuitive but I'm sure if you put in the time it gets easier. I wish more games were streamed over Twitch or Youtube though. Replay files are fine if you use Vassal but nothing is getting out to the wider community.

Okay, so here's what we're gonna do:

Fleet submission will be via a link that I'll put up an hour prior.  Entries will close at 10am EST / 2pm GMT.  First round will start once I get every entry into the system and randomize first round, with a timer for 3 hours.   We'll be doing Advanced Structure, but with a Top 4 cut regardless of the number of players, so up to 28 players is 3 rounds, 29-44 is 4 rounds, and 45+ is 5 rounds.

Day 1 will last 3 rounds.

Day 2 will take up the remainder.

Top 4 cut will be on Day 2 (but can be delayed until the next day if it's super late).

For Real Time Vassal Tournament internet rules - if someone is D/C'd for longer than 10 minutes this will count as a concession.

To discourage slow squadron play, please take the following steps:
- Activate the squadron / clone the squadron
- Move the squadron once
- Reposition the squadron once only if it was moved illegally (i.e. moved too far / overlapping ships or squadrons)
- Delete the original squadron

Is there a multiple-tool restriction in effect as well?

In my experience multiple tool restrictions slows play both in real life and on vassal.

Soooo...sticking with Friday as day 1 and Saturday as day 2, even without the rest of the con structure around it?

Couldn't slide that to...Saturday as day 1 and Sunday as day 2?
