I would have given the equivalent of a like to this topic if the forum had that.

Re:Online tournament Small world. Tue, 21 October 2014 13:26
Hello!

First of all, I'd like to say that it is a very good initiative to organize a Small World tournament!

Now let me share my thoughts about it.

1) I think that the tournament would only be fair if all participants played by the same rules, i.e. with the same expansions. Since Royal Bonus is not available to everybody, I believe that the other three digital expansions should be a must in creating a game. (Or everybody should agree upon the expansions for the tournament, anyway, conditions should be the same for all players.)

2) The first obstacle for those who holds a Small World2 tournament can be the fact that sometimes players can't see invitation from other players. It does not happen too often, but it still happens. Most likely it is a bug on the DoW server.

3) The second obstacle that the hosts will face is another bug on the DoW server wich happens very-very often. I am talking about the gaps in the game history. The game has ended but the game history misses it, as if there has been no game.

This problem can be solved by sending a screenshot of the final screen to the hosts. And my advice for the participants would be to make a screenshot of the final screen of each game.

4) SW2 is programmed in such a way, that players who accept an invitation, cannot see whether the turn order is random or not, so here there is a room for cheating. I really wish that the developers had made all the settings of an invitation game visible for those who are invited.

I agree about the common rules, but there are those who do not have add-ons. Therefore, as an alternative proposal to organize without additions. Suppose first amateur online tournament will be a classic. So this is the easiest way.

It is difficult to fight against bugs. We can publish here calls. When a player knows his mate, he creates the game, and writes here. To be sure, you can send a private message in the forum.

This is a very good idea can save a lot of time. Yes, let's agree to make a screenshot.

The easiest way is to follow the rules of fair play. We cant check.

There is an option to play up to 2 wins.No then there is a problem in the third game. Who will go first? This will complicate the administration.

Let's try to believe our opponents are. After all, we play for fun.

Thanks for the feedback! And then there is a silence ...

Prior to the start, we can make changes in the rules. But the event will not take place without the players. Smile So the biggest problem - who will play?

I propose to send private messages to those players who you know AngriMarine and write regularly in the lobby invitation.

Those problems that I have pointed out are serious enough to hold me back from participating in the tournament. If there is a situation when players don't see each other's invitation, then it will be a waste of time and energy. Besides, playing Small World on the 2 player map without expansions is not interesting for me. If one likes Small World to the extent of participating in a tournanament, then why not buy the three expansions. Let us be honest, they are not expensive! I would say that they are very cheap in comparison to the value they add to the game.
You say, that we play for fun. I can play for fun without any tournament. In fact, the only tournament that I would like to participate in, is the one held by Days of Wonder, and Days of Wonder are coming to an end, so...
