Hi there! SleepingDog sent us the scores and we confirm the victory of Bastards of the North. Sorry that it had to be won by score. Please hurry up to prepare for round 3 to avoid that in your next game.
Please also edit the report with the actual class/race.
@SleepingDog, dude seriously? You and Personian are the ones to build the forts all across the map to increase domain and now you're blaming me and Eskild for going for multiple cities?
I have not seen the overall score, but I did see your (and Personian's ) armies marching towards us and dare to say, that the forces he and I have are no less than the ones you had So I believe military scores should be close.
Hi! SleepingDog, it's apparently your turn and personian quitted without sending us the scores (same for Ezekiel). Could you please follow the process as I sent in the chat and send the scores to the judges by private message WITHOUT leaving the game? (when I say "quit", I mean "save & quit")
31 hours left until the end of round. The deadline is 2019-03-31 9:31 PM GMT+0.
So personian, please follow the 5 steps listed when it's time. In particular, remember to save & exit before you surrender, back up the save, then surrender, then save & exit again WITHOUT sending the turn to the next player.
Hi! SleepingDog sent a video of his turn which we were able to check.
Round 2 ends in a bit less than 7 days (see the time count here: https://www.the-battlefield.c... It seems very unlikely that your match will be won before the deadline. It will therefore be decided by score. The procedure is as follow:
1/ the current strategic turn is played until the last player in the turn order 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
Could you please confirm who is the last player in the turn order? Can this player please confirm he read this message and understood?
SleepingDog gets a warning without adequate proof. Unfortunately, there is no other choice, since even if it is possible that an Ironman notification was given by the game for no reason, we have no way to know for sure.
@SleepingDog: please get in touch with me on the chat, we'd need you to record the next turn or equivalent.
No there wasn't an Ironman notification as far as I remember. Even if i think about resarting my turn accidentally, I would have to do my temple fight again which was definitely not the case. This just doesn't make any sense.
Hi! The game says there was a restart so apparently something strange happened. SleepingDog, you don't remember getting a window when you entered the game saying you were going to have an Ironman notification?
I sent a PM to SleepingDog, copy other judges. I'll send another one this evening EU time, depending on the answer.
Reminder of rule 4: "4. In the event of a crash (from your PC or from AoW), reloads are allowed BUT the player who crashed needs to take appropriate screenshots, pictures or videos (with a mobile phone for instance) and sends them to the judges. The player who crashed must not re-enter the game after the crash, he must wait for feedback from the judges allowing the game to continue. The turn timer must be turned off by the host while waiting for judges’ feedback (see rule 8). Reloads should be counted by all players and reported to the judges. If no proof of a justified crash or in case of repeated reloading (during one match or during the tournament as a whole), the judges have full power to disqualify the player."
If the mouse was frozen, I wonder how you killed the app? And in any case, you can take pictures with a smartphone.
I'm sending a PM to other judges to decide what we do.
Hi - you should post whatever evidence of the process you have, pictures or videos or alike, to the judges, and await with progressing/taking your turn until you have heard from them.
Best thing would be if you had run the game in debug mode (under the "Miscellaneous" tab in the launcher) and had the log-file from that (though I don´t know how to recover that, when the game crashes in that mode).
Cheers - hope for a quick decision from the judges.
Hi! So after discussion among judges, we conclude that Ezekiel gets 2 warning equivalent to "with proof" for 1/ the crash for which he provided pictures which we judged adequate (though next time, please try to make a video with your smartphone and/or show the message saying the program crashed) and 2/ continuing to play in breach of rule 4.
We requested him to play in debug mode and to send a video of turn 17.

So Ezekiel, you should not have finished your turn...
@all: please stop the game for now. I sent a PM to the other judges today, should have an answer soon.
Game crashed due to a power failure on my computer (charger wasn´t plugged in). Somehow the game still runned after plugging power but have halted in it´s process and was non-responding. I tried making a dump file but it seemed nothing happened.
I got some shitty mobile photos of the issue (snipping tool wouldn´t open) - sending them to the judges.
Perhaps you should wait with proceeding with your turns until the judges have reviewed the issue sent by PM to them.
