As long as you have the [H] as a tag for the heavy division, then I don't care how you do it as long as I can see you are battling under that name. :)

It will still accept you, and I change it in the ini file. There is another way of doing it "in game" but the ini file is alot faster. :)

Edit: Be sure not to use the tag when not battling in a tournament everybody. ;)

For the Heavy division, does map size has to be 5x5? I don't mind it but for 20k a 6x6 map allows for more space.

Hmm...you're right...I should of remembered my battles with 20k being so weird on a 5x5 map. 6x6 for heavy then. :) I made the rules say 6x6 map for heavy just now. See Tournament Rules again. :)

Well, me and abyssion has some fun testing the Galactic weapons on a 4x4 map on mountains with a 30K point limit(we didn't actually go up to there) so you should have a heavyweight division with a small map

So when is this tournament going to start?

How people can make up "dates" in ufo server( when the battle is needed to be played), If we all live in different lands and theres timeZone differece between them, i think that is a problem.. have u solved that problem?

Is evryones opponent selected randomly or do we just play with the guy we meat up in the server with same tag as i have?

About two weeks from my sign ups topic.

I already realize this. The solution will be to set up times cooperatively in a new topic that I will create before the tournaments start.

Is evryones opponent selected randomly or do we just play with the guy we meat up in the server with same tag as i have?

It will be set up randomly.

Do every game means elimination for one team? Or you'll just sum all the points. Or combination of that.

you cannot keep track on points on scoreboard
it goes like this
People play
Kratos keeps score in tournament based on who won against who in division.... lets say [H] He compares other scores, and those who win(1 out of 1 or 2 out of three?) move on. those who lose take off their tags and play normally

Why not have progressively larger maps for each "weight" class?

Ie; 40x40 for 10k
50x50 for 15k
and
60x60 for 20k

40x40 maps can be a unpredictable outcome for all players, making them harder to win. Which doesn't fit the "Light weight" divison at all.

Questions from Leimrei

My username starts with an "L" so I wont be putting it in front of my username.  And one more thing: It appears that I have a very bad OS CD (windows XP), and it seems that it have some corrupted files, so my computer crashes very often (especially when I play UFO 2000).  Will you (the project leaders) get very mad if this happens?  :sorry:


You will need to put a "L" before your name. It goes like this for everybody:

[L]Leimrei
[L]Kratos
etc...

If your computer crashes...it is understandable. No I will not get mad, its understandable, but I am not a project Leader, I am a host of this tournament.

Only thing is I hav no idea about what time zone you guys will be in.. I am in australia, so let me know when you'll be meeting.

other than that, I look forward to it.. yay

Don't worry about time zone just yet. I am going to make another topic for cooperation with time before battles start. So don't worry...let me do the worrying ;)

We aren't using the beta. We will be using the latest stable. You can already find out who won on the ufo2000 server results page anyway. I can look to see if there has been problems...trust me, if anybody attempts to cheat...I will be likely to know. I have been down that path for testing and debugging purposes. :OhBrother:

Your posts have been moved because this is what this thread is for. Junking up the sign ups is not going to help me figure everything out. I am lucky to be able to run this tournament because I don't have as much time as I use to now. If I make a mistake, pm me or post here. It will be fixed asap. :)

To Tsereve: Please pm me next time. I will see to it that you get added in. What divisions are you willing to accept?

I need someone to help me with this. I would like to ask you Hobbes, to help me keep everything on watch and such. It would be greatly appreciated. Hobbes, if you see someone win something, go ahead and post it in the sign ups area if you accept my request for help. :)

To Neithan: the mistake is corrected. I have been rushing with things since of my little amount of time. Mistakes will happen. :)

Copybass just posted saying that he won't be able to play for at least a week. Perhaps Tsereve can replace him meanwhile on the Heavy division so that the tournament doesn't take that long.

PS - Me and Neithan played today on Heavy and I won.

I'll go onto the server around 3 EST, so noon for you, and just stay there for a while. If you aren't there I'll probably be coming and going but I'll stay logged on so you can see that I'm in there, and if I see you on the server then we can play. I would prefer to start before around 5 or so EST, since it is after all a Saturday, so hopefully that time works for you.
