Last month we added Play-by-Email (PBE) functionality to Battle Cry
so we are organizing a PBE Tournament of the game this month. Battle Cry is a commands and colors style civil war game.
The anticipated tournament launch date is November 28, 2011. While games can be played asynchronously, the intention is for players to find a common playing time within one
week of each match-up being announced. The purpose of running this as a PBE tournament is not to take advantage of the PBE game format but to run a tournament that is not locked into a single time period and to allow for the potential for double elimination tournament without forcing other players to wait online.
The tournament is a double elimination event with each round consisting of 2 match play with each player playing union once, confederate once and the player with the most combined captured flags advancing. Ties will result in a replay of the 2 games. Please post game results in this thread.
The prize pool for the tournament will be GTO Points equaling 30 times the number of players and that will be divided between the top 3 or 4 participants.
