Hi! So we looked at the scores... The match was very tight and it was not obvious who should win it. In the end, judges decided Crusher got the victory. Congratulations to them. I'm going to edit the result and the roster. Please then edit the class/race.

Please note that, as explained in the past, the rule is not straightforward "victory for the team with the highest score" as explained in rule 1:
"The team with the highest cumulated score for non-eliminated players (dead players have 0 point) then wins the match. If scores are very close, the judges can decide that it is a draw and decide a replay the game with a shorter deadline (for instance 1 month), an extension or another solution (including awarding victory to one team), based on the circumstances of the march and the tournament. "

We did fall within the "very close" case for this game. Crusher won thanks to the capture of domain in the last 3-4 turns. We are sorry the game is decided like this but unfortunately round 2 cannot be delayed further if we want to keep all the players involved in the tournament on board until the end of the tourney.

Due to a misunderstanding, the turn notifications were not recorded comprehensively so this part of rule 1 can't be applied "In case of score victory, judges may require the “new turn notification” logs to all players to determine if the teams delayed the game by repeatedly breaking rule 3. A malus (e.g. -10% or more) might then be applied to the score of the rule-breaking teams.". In the future, please note that the player doing the recording needs to activate turn notifications on other players' turns (in the settings of the PBEM game).

Please get ready for next match!
And you're of course free to continue the current match for fun, for instance by doing a revert so that AlX replays his turn.

Good luck and have fun in the rest of the tournament!

Should be:
rickyroo (Nicolas)
Ezekiel (Imanuit)
AlX (Shaya)

@Ezekiel: could you please send me the turn notification for all 4 players for all round? I see 3 options:
- send screenshots of your mailbox with all the emails needed
- forward all the emails to me by email
- save all the emails and send them as 1 archive (.zip for instance)

As announced at the beginning, this will be used to check if some players played in more than 24 hours without having notified it on the game blog, and potentially giving a score malus to these players.

Sent the resulting scores to the judges. By the look of it - our opponents won, so congratulations guys! <smiletext0>

In theory you can play the turn since the deadline has not yet been exceeded. In practice, as Ezekiel is away, would be nicer for the tourney to stop now. But I think it makes sense to continue for 1 turn as rules allow.

Guys, it's been nearly 6 hours that I hold the turn for while we could be halfway to the next turn :/

Written by marcuspers
Hiliandan have the ultimate answer but since Ezekiel have already stated he is away to the 25th (perhaps even 27th) the best thing would probably be to surrender today, as today is the deadline of your extension.

So, please wait to finish your turn before Hiliadan have a chance to give his input.

Get rickys and lightforms opinion. Both options are fine with me, but I can probably first make my next turn on the 25th or 27th.

Published on 2018-12-23 11:25:23

Confirmed by AlXStormrage
Guys, I'm currently at my turn, do I surrender now or do I finish my turn and we all make 1 more turn? as there are almost 12 more hours till the end of the time.

I might not be able to take my turn during the holiday and will turn the timer off.

What do you need Hili, all of the emails or...?

Hi! Your time extension expires this Sunday 23:59:59 GMT+1. The usual procedure then applies:
1/ the current strategic turn is played until the last player in the turn order (AlX?)
2/ that player plays his turn, saves & quits, copy the save game to a backup folder
3/ that player re-enters the game and surrenders, then takes screenshots of all the scores. He does NOT end the turn. Instead he quits the game without ending the turn.
4/ he sends the screenshots to judges (Marcus, Jonny and me)
5/ judges check the scores and take a decision

@Ezekiel: can you please prepare to send me the email notifications of the turn, as requested at the beginning of the match. You're free to find the form that is the most convenient for you.

hey, guys! I was away from my PC whole day yesterday and will only be able to play my turn today late in the evening. Please postpone timer, if needed!

Published on 2018-12-09 22:31:10

Dummy admin report to be able to start round 2.
Will be re-reported with actual results when the match ends.

Published on 2018-12-08 12:47:35

We will commence on round 30 some arbitrary time of this weekend. Cheers.

Published on 2018-12-08 12:41:04

Hi! I'll do an admin dummy report of the match in about 34 hours (end of round 2) so that round 2 can technically start for other matches, but the report will be edited based on the actual result when we know it.

What turn did you reach?

Published on 2018-11-25 13:35:35

Hi! The team change was confirmed on 28/09, about 11 days after the start of the round. After discussion between judges, we give you a time extension of 2 weeks to take that into account, so you have until 23 December 23:59:59 to finish your match (about 28 days from now). If the match is not finished, scores will be considered by judges.
Round 2 of the tournament will however start on 9 December as initially planned. It means 4 matches out of the 8 to be played will be on hold while the 2 delayed matches are completed.

Good luck with the rest of the match!

Rolling on turn 22 it seems like. Quite decent pace imo, too bad we got started late.

Published on 2018-11-20 22:15:01

Guys, please postpone timer till tomorrow's evening- I am not able to play my turn today 😓

Published on 2018-11-19 21:33:04

Hi there! What turn did you reach?

Published on 2018-11-09 08:48:40

Hi guys,

I'm a bit stuck at work last few days, please postpone timer if needed until today's evening, should be able to clear my turn.

Published on 2018-10-27 10:09:26

Marcus: I did plan ahead, but just wrote my team mate on steam. I didn´t have the time also to notify him through this platform which might have helped.

Nevertheless I will switch to a 2-day turn timer.

I only collect the turn notifications for myself.

Published on 2018-10-26 22:43:29

Yes, sorry but reverts are not allowed on tournament games, except really exceptional circumstances.

Ok for turn timer at 48 hours but really just for exceptional cases when you can play in 26 hours like this time. Ezekiel is keeping the records of time needed for turn if needed at the end of the math.

Good luck for the rest of the game!

Published on 2018-10-26 22:35:42

I am pretty sure judges won't allow it simply "because".
Either way, it's a bit frustrating to check for the turn on the Thursday 21:00 and then see the Friday 23:00 that it' s already next opponents turn. (I'm leaving my home around 6:00 in the morning)

Either way, please put 2-day timer, just to eliminate such situations. 

Published on 2018-10-26 22:22:07

I can revert turn tomorrow, like 10-12 hours from now, if judges allow it. AlX might have missed a turn. Dunno.

Published on 2018-10-25 23:04:55

For your information, I confirm your game is fine on the main branch. The "beta" displayed is because you hosted it when the name issue was still there and the mod name displayed in the PBEM lobby remains the one from when the game was hosted.

Please remember to put highest priority on this game. Other games are about turn 20 now.

When players do not show up for their match, the Tournament Judges have the right to change the match!

Yeah - I can do that. Currently the game is stalled as Lightform has problems joining due to GoG issues. I haven´t contacted him on Steam to check.

Published on 2018-10-09 00:24:28

Hi! What's the status of the game? I haven't received any news from AlX regarding the turn notifications. Ezekiel, could you please confirm you can save the turn notification emails to be able to forward them to me at the end of the match if necessary?

Published on 2018-10-02 22:54:39

Hi! Settings look good, you can start.

Have fun & good luck to all! Please put a high priority on this game (even higher than the finale of the other tournament for Ezekiel & AlX) as you have only 68 days left.

I need someone to save all turn notification for all 4 players and send them to me by email, so that we can check rule 1 ""In case of score victory, judges may require the “new turn notification” logs to all players to determine if the teams delayed the game by repeatedly breaking rule 3. A malus (e.g. -10% or more) might then be applied to the score of the rule-breaking teams."

rickyroo, could you please do that?

Screenshots of the hosting process. Game is "Eskild´s Game" password "moliwood".

Pobez and Elio replaced and relegated to reserve team #s.

Ezekiel and AlX should now play this match, please send your class/race ASAP and let's start this match.

@rickyroo & Lightform: you can change your class/race if you want, please resend it to judges (and then rehost).

Also, please note that for this match, I need someone to send me all the turn notifications (sent by Triumph's server when the turn of a player is ready) to be able to monitor rule 1:
"In case of score victory, judges may require the “new turn notification” logs to all players to determine if the teams delayed the game by repeatedly breaking rule 3. A malus (e.g. -10% or more) might then be applied to the score of the rule-breaking teams."

Hi! Still missing Pobez's class/race. Giving him 48 hours to provide it by PM to Marcuspers and me before their team is replaced by a team from the reserve list, as the tournament started about 11 days ago and we need to complete the round before 9 December.
