### Re: TOURNAMENT: Conquest

My original idea of the tournament system is:
• people that win Round 1 play for placings 1-18
• people that lose Round 1 play for placings 19-36
etc.
But that way people that lost could have a low motivation next rounds.
So I am thinking about a slightly different system.

--------------------------------------------------
For simplicity let us imagine a tourney with 8 players. The simple system (the original idea) is:

Round 1:
Group A: players play for placings 1-8

Round 2:
Group A is split in 2 groups:
Group Aa: players play for placings 1-4
Group Ab: players play for placings 5-8

Round 3:
Group Aa is split in 2 groups:
Group Aaa: players play for placings 1-2
Group Aab: players play for placings 3-4
Group Ab is split in 2 groups:
Group Aaa: players play for placings 5-6
Group Aab: players play for placings 7-8

Now if
• any winner of Round 1 gains 1 point
• any winner of Round 2 gains 1/2 point
• any winner of Round 3 gains 1/4 point
then the placings are determined by the total points gained.

A player who loses 1st round then wins all remaining rounds ends 5th (just under 50% among all players).

-------------------------------------------------
Now how to alter the system:
Edit: this system will be used. Maybe it will be slightly altered because in later rounds we will have groups with more players
• any winner of Round 1 gains 1 point
• any winner of Round 2 gains 3/4 of a point
• any winner of Round 3 gains 9/16 of a point
• ...
A player who loses 1st round then wins all remaining rounds ends just under 75% among all players.

Any comments, complaints?

### Re: TOURNAMENT: Conquest

Looks like it could work pretty well. No complaints either way. However, is there any way to create an opportunity for players who lost the first match but won all the others, to still have a chance at being a runner-up for the finals?

P.S. Has anyone seen Conrad on?

There are ways (like the swiss system), but that would be too laborious for me. If anyone is willing to maintain another tournament system then we can use it.

I have been off of Wesnoth since the beginning of the school year. Is there any way to get involved in the tournament now or is it too late?

The re-pairing will take place today at 22:00 GMT on the official 1.8 server.

List of players that will be paired:
KussMar,Gyudan,Lich_Lord,BLAST,Substitute1,Substitute2

The substitutes will be taken from these players (their order is important, because it is the order how they will fill the two "Substitute" slots):
1. Conrad
2. C4theslayer
3. Gwledig
Conrad was on the list of dead people so far, then BLAST told me he started some communication with Conrad. So I ask Conrad in this thread to confirm whether he lives and wants to play.
C4theslayer asked to participate in the tournament about a week ago.
Gwledig asked to participate in the tournament earlier, but he didnt respond to my PM, so he may be dead now.

I have a connection of sorts with Conrad, but he looks at/answers PMs about once every 7-10 days and he is really busy and cannot organize times for games very well.

Gwledig is in the process of moving and although not dead might not have the means to respond or play games.
