  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

The tournament will start so long as we can get at least 16 players to sign up, but preferably up to 32 along with some reserves.

Prize
The winner will be given €40 (Paypal required), or can chose Steam content worth €40.

Required activity
To make the tournament progress smoothly, you have to be able to play at least one game per week. If a player in the first round doesn't show up for a week, his spot will be given to a reserve. If a player in one of the following rounds doesn't show up for a week, the player who lost to him in the previous round will be given the chance to take his spot. Ideally, no one will get a free win because his opponent doesn't show. For this reason, it's important to contact me if you are unable to reach your opponent, so I can either help you get in touch with him or determine who's fault it is.

Game rules
The games will be played on Conquest with standard settings. Each round will be a Bo3. Player A gets to chose faction or map in the first game, and player B gets to chose faction or map in the second game. If it goes to a third game, Cointossr will be used to determine who gets to chose faction or map.

Player 1 bans one map.
Player 2 bans one map.

Player 1 choses faction/map.
Player 2 choses what's left.

Player 1 bans one of player 2's divisions.
Player 2 bans one of player 1's divisions.
Player 1 bans one of player 2's divisions.
Player 2 bans one of player 1's divisions.

Replays
After games have been completed, the replays have to be submitted by the winner, either to me personally, in this topic or on Discord. You have to be able to prove that you won. Replays can be uploaded here: http://sd-replays.net/replay-list

Disconnects
Getting disconnected from the game will count as a loss if more than 1 minute has passed, unless your opponent agrees to a rematch. However, if it seems like the disconnect was intentional (because of a poor start, for example), it will be judged as a loss anyways. Finally, if one player has such a big lead that it's impossible for him not to win, he will be given the win even if he suffers from a disconnect.

Draws
If there is a draw, the game will be replayed with the same divisions on the same map.

I just hope that compared to Paradox tourney this time Fussel, the 6 foot 8, OH MY GOD,freak of nature will be coming down the water slide at 95 miles per hour, butt naked, fully vaselined from head to tippy-toe,ready to knock every single SD 44 top player out of the competition.

And btw,why Conquest,why not the official ranked mode ?

Fussel is in, and i'm sure he will enter tryhard mode not to disappoint you!

And btw,why Conquest,why not the official ranked mode ?

Because I think Conquest measures skill better than Closer Combat. It will also be fun to play 1v1 Conquest again (although I'm better at the Closer Combat mode).

I am no top player, but I'll watch :)

Feel free to join anyways, if you like. Anyone is welcome to sign up!

Just because of the 52% rule alone Closer Combat is the better gamemode in my opinion. Should be introduced for Conquest as well.

I'm adding another rule, which will be in effect as of round 3, to make it fair for those who are still in round 1-2. Each player will be able to ban one map each, with player 1 (the player who choses faction/map) picking his ban first. The map bans will take place before the division bans.

Congratulations to player for winning the tournament after beating Fussel 2-0 in the finals (there was a draw as well)! Third spot went to włochatypająkulec who defeated Dnestr in the bronze match.
