    Default The Macedonian Ruins 10k Tourney (Sunday, February 17)

    *UPDATED RULES: DISREGARD*

    "When this was reported throughout Macedonia, city gates were closed and the whole country was filled with lamentation. People grieved for the loss of their sons, were fearful that their cities faced destruction, or called out the names of their kings Alexander and Philip, imploring their aid as if they were deities. Under them, they said, they had not merely been secure; they had also been the conquerors of the world."
    - Justin (from Epitome of the Philippic History of the Pompeius Trogus)


    (Unrelated to the above quote, but this is a coin of Perseus of Macedon. After his defeat at Pydna, the Macedonians had completely lost their former prestige)

    The Macedonian Ruins 10k Tourney (Sunday, February 17)

    I thought we'd use the Macedonian Ruins for the tourney map with no restrictions on rules or factions. It's 'anything goes' on the Macedonian Ruins! The map has hills and some trees to hide in. So it should be fun!

    Totally agree!

    It worked the first time fine but the second time no games had the same version that I had.

    But the tourney is in one week so I have time to fix it

    *UPDATE: Sorry for the confusion, but I changed my mind (again), and I'm going to keep my tournament "No Rules"*

    Ok, I think you're right. I want my tournaments to remain "No Rules." So, I'll let everyone keep their artillery.

    That said, I won't explain why I want to ban artillery on a hilly-map like the Macedonian Ruins (as opposed to a flat map like the Syrian Flats). I'll let you guys find out the hard way.

    In any case, artillery does suck (on flat maps).

    Hopefully I'll perform better than last time, though that won't be difficult cuz it can't get worse than losing everything.
    On the plus side I have played about ten battles with 9 HV's. Little boost of confidence.

    I'd like to join but I don't think I'll have time this Sunday, generally don't in the afternoons.

    Do you hold these tournaments every two weeks? If so I think I'll give one a try. Do you ever have them at different times, or is it always Sunday afternoons (EST)?

    That's my current trend (to hold them every two weeks), but that is not a definite schedule. As far as times go, it's almost always going to be 7pm (British time). And Sundays seem the best because that's when most people have nothing else to do.
