Tournament FAQ
« on: May 13, 2012, 03:25:31 AM »
Here, you may ask questions concerning the Tourney Setup, Rules, methods, all sorts of prettyful things go into this category.

If you have any questions, just shoot!  :)

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. How many commanders do you need/have?

Answer: Your team may have up to 3, but should pick at least 1. It depends on what is needed for your faction and how skilled your commander is with organization and strategy during the war.

2. Where should I post which territory my faction is going to attack?

Please post your attack plans in a new topic named like this:

Code: [Select]
Faction name (Player Name(s)) attack(s) #XX [map name]
Example:

Panzer Elite (Simuz) attacks #38 [Ruins of Rouen (2)]

How are we to submit replays for verification for wins? Do we go into our replay folder of company of heroes, pull the file out onto the desktop, and then add an attachment to a post verifying the win? Or could someone show us the proper format to submit victories for verification. Thanks for a prompt notice.

This is the correct procedure. Thank you for asking though. I will add a "How To" to that rule.

EDIT: I hope my edit to the post has clarified the issue.

Given Leningrad's reputation (bridge :P) will we still have to fight over that map or is there an alternative to it ???? I don't mind playing on it but I was just wondering

EDIT: I just saw that many capital maps have 2 maps associated with it. Does this mean you will have to fight on both maps in order to win or can you just choose either or ?

I could make an alternative version with undestructiable bridges if needed.

I could also do that, but I don't think a special "tourney patch" is needed. Either we will chose another map or people will have to live with it.

This is correct. Since these maps are best of 5, You'll play one match on one, one match on the other, so on and so forth.

As for Leningrad, likely, I might make a map change to it for that reason you listed, but I figured that if it was a Capital it should at least have it's own map. Plus it may give some the less experienced players in the tourney a bit of detene or relaxation.

You will know after Round 1. In this round, players will pick their sectors to attack, and then the Allies will pick who defends. From there, your positions are set. You won't be doing much moving around unless you're advancing on the enemy or requesting transfers.

BTW you said one Axis condition of victory was: "Fully Repel the D-Day invasion". Something along those lines. When D-Day kicks off exactly how much territory are they being granted extra or must they fight for every plot of land to take it ????

In the rules, it says this:
Quote
Push back the Allied Invasion of Normandy and hold at least 80% of former (1939) German territory

In this instance, if both D-Day Invasions (Sector 1 and 2, stacked in favor of the attacker) fail, and Germany retains 80% of it's original 36 territories, the tourney can be called into a victory for the Axis. (This is actually realistic, as Stalin had been considering a treaty with Hitler leading up to and even on the days of D-Day.)

If D-Day is successful, players will retain sectors 1 and/or 2.

Will the sublime crew be making shoutcast for the truly epic, pivotal battles of the tournament? Also, since only 5 sectors can be attacked, what about the axis and Soviet players who can't partake in the attack, will their positions be unmarked until they begin fighting?

There is :D. Crani and I will do a weekly shoutcast on Sundays which will hightlight awesome points of some games. Some Sublime casts may also contain the better games from the tourney.

If you get into an argument with me, you're wrong.
