Hi all.

Great, I will add your names to the list.

I can get you up and running for Rd 10 which is in progress. The official end to that round is not until Aug 26th, so there should not be a problem w/ getting the games in.

Oh, by the way, what times zones are you in?

The scenario for this round is Suomussalmi (East Front scenario # 38).

We use the Vassal engine to play live games on. It probably is a good idea to check the Vassal site to ensure you have all the latest versions of all the Mem 44 extensions.

What I can do for now is to add you three in the order you posted in.

So that means for Rd 10

Bayernkini vs Vangoce would play each other in Match 13.

Nemesszili will play in Match 14. If another new player shows up in the next day or so, I will add him to Match 14. If not, then I will have a another ladder player (as a proxy player) fill in and play.

For additional details, check out these links below. If any of you have any questions, post here (or after joining the yahoo ladder group, you can contact me through there.

Here are more details:

See here for the Ladder tourney details. This is the thread that kick started it all off...

http://www.daysofwonder.com/en/msg/?th=15265&start=0

You will see from the description of on the thread that you can join in at any point starting from the bottom of the ladder at the beginning of the next round or the current round (depending on how far along that round is).

We have already started Rd 10 but you may join in now w/ no problems.

Here are more details:

http://www.daysofwonder.com/en/msg/?th=15548&start=0

Best for you to sign on as a member to the yahoo group here...

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Mem44kingladder

Once you've joined the ladder group you can add your details into the Player database and post a message requesting to join the next round.

Good luck and welcome aboard.

John -- GM Mem 44 King of the Hill ladder.

Players do post such things in the chat window.

Also nemesszili, I do have an opponent lined up for you. He is already on the ladder but lacks an opponent.

Welcome to the Ladder, guys.

When you join the Yahoo group, take a look through the Database and Files sections. You'll find some interesting things.

John, be careful about telling Bayernkini to make sure he has the latest version of all the extensions. I think he's working on version 12 of the module and a UFO Pack expansion. Smile

If he is interested in playing against me, I'm in. Just name him.
Also, if I understood well, then all scenarios will be played twice, changing sides? And, of course, we'll play Soumussalmi...

OK, I have contacted him and he should be in touch w/ you shortly.

Yes sir. We play one scenario per round - two games - one for each side - you got it exactly right.

John.

In each match, the most medals wins.

Tiebreak is based on most figures killed.

If that is tied, too, then the person higher in the ladder is declared the winner. (As John said when announcing this policy, rank has its privileges.)

All the winners move (in order) to the top half of the ladder. All the losers go to the bottom half. In the current round, because of the way things worked out, we have a couple of new people joining at the bottom of the ladder, but playing an opponent in one of the middle positions. The pre-existing player's rank in the next round will be determined by his current position in the ladder. The new player's rank in the next round will be based on his position at the bottom of the ladder.

One of the players reports both the medal and figure counts from each game, either as a posting on the Yahoo group or directly to John, and he updates them into the Results table.

If one player clinches the match victory in the middle of the second game, we still prefer you to finish the second game, for fun and for the statistics.

We have just started Rd 42 and we would like at least one more
player. Currently we have one player slated to play against a proxy but I would prefer he face his own opponent. Any takers? If so send me a PM.

Thank you kindly.

John - GM

An update, we are now based on the BGG site here:

https://www.boardgamegeek.com/guild/2709

So disregard the Yahoo site as it is no longer used.

Yes, JayKay we are still using Vassal which Bart DeGroot has done a fine job of keeping up to date with the newest expansions. We would love to have you on the ladder but coming to England to play you F2F is probably not a possibility.

The change John mentioned back in August had to do strictly with our access to a calendar and PM's.

Surprised to hear that some computer would not run VASSAL. It is, at least in my opinion, very basic in the sense that there are no animations or other similar things. Or is it just the Memoir module?

Cue the music from 2001 -- in the opening scenes from that film, right next to the black monolith, is the small factory where your computer was built.

Well, the ladder will be there when you upgrade to a better computer Razz

Hi Tank Commander,

I have never played in a tournament, but would like to learn. Is this a good place to start? Also,I don't understand the reference to vassal. Is that a gaming platform? I am also ignorant of the title Memoir'44, the term "king of the hill", and "ladder". Sorry! This is all new to me. If you could enlighten me, I would appreciate it. I usually play on a tablet, but I also play on laptop using steam. I appreciate your advice.

Thanks
