How quickly should turns be played? I am very much interested, but I don't want to stall.
Ideally complete a game a week, as it is a competition, but obviously everyone has real life issues too. I'm terrible for this, so I won't sit in judgment! ::)

A game a week is something to aim for, and maybe sorted by arranging a time with your opponent to play several or all turns in one setting if time generally is at a premium.

As with all these things play it by ear. Some people will do quick returns, some not. If things become a problem, don't be silent, talk about it, we can usually find a solution. :)

Thanks Boggit.

If I still can I would like to sign up for this.
Kids are supposed to resume school next week, so I expect this will work out nicely.

However, if pilots would need to do daily what they are capable of doing, nobody would dare to fly anymore.

I've emailed Paolo for the Steam keys, and will DM them hopefully later today as and when I get them.

@Gus - Are you in and do you need a Steam Key?

Ground rules

Player Matching

We have possibly 11 players so far, which I have divided into two divisions

Division 1

Shelldrake
Matt3916
Sauron
Nelmsm
Paolo
Yskonyn

Division 2
Tripoli
Bardolph
al_infierno
Grim_Reaper
Gus (TBC)

1. Everybody plays everybody else on their division
2, The top three players in a division go into the semi final
3. The semi final winners play the final

Battles

All games are custom battles

Game size

Large

Maps

Map type  - "Pot luck" or by informal agreement with opponent

Scenario

Open Battle or by informal agreement with opponent

Army Choice

Up to the player. Allies are permitted if available to that army list.

The player army choice can be changed at the outset of each game with a new opponent.

Scoring

Win 3 points
Draw 1 point
Loss 0 points

Update your running score tally on your division table on this thread. (Cut and paste the latest division scores and then the winner/draw updates your their score. So for example...

Division 1

Shelldrake 3
Matt3916   1
Sauron      1
Nelmsm    0
Paolo        0
Yskonyn    3

I think I've covered the relevant points, but as usual if I've missed something, or there is an issue please don't be shy and let me know! :smiley6600:

Feel free to post screenshots/AARS.

In the spirit of the "Colosseum" - just for fun, we must have bragging rights! >:D

All participants can add "Gladiator" to their Grogheads profile.

Draws allow you replace that with "Retiarius";

Battle winners can replace "Gladiator/Retiarius" with "Secutor", and if you make it to the semi finals you can replace "Secutor" with "Myrmidon";

Competition winners get the right to "Rudiarius" on their profile!

Give it a try. If you find it gets to be too much time for you, withdraw with honour and allow your opponent to get a win. At least you will have had some fun. :)

Do you have a copy of the game, if not I'll ask for another steam code? No problem there.

Nice! I see I start with 3 points off the bat! Not bad!

Now come get some!

Oh.. how does the sponsorship work? I need to install the game before I can play. I assume it'll be a timed license of sorts?
