Pandemic Online MEMOIR'44 Championships & Overlords: July 31-August 2 Mon, 29 June 2020 08:47
.
Because the World Boardgaming Championships (WBC) is cancelled this summer, instead of running the big Memoir tournament there, I'm going to run an even bigger tournament online.

The Pandemic Online Memoir'44 Championships will be the same weekend that the WBC tournament would have been, but anybody in the world is welcome to participate. The dates will be Friday July 31 (Overlords only), Saturday-Sunday August 1-2 (tournament & Overlords). The details of the schedule will be all different from WBC, because (A) this will be online, and (B) we'd like to encourage as many people as possible to participate.

I will GM this event, as I do at WBC -- but I won't compete in the tournament. AGMs are gheintze, mrmanley31, and Tank Commander (and there may be more later).


TOURNAMENT

6-round Swiss System. Everybody who wants can play in all 6 rounds. Rounds 1-3 will be Saturday, and rounds 4-6 will be Sunday. Maximum of 80 players.

All games will be played on Memoir Online. We will use Official scenarios, so players don't need to pay extra for Expert Mode. (If you don't currently have Memoir Online, you get some free credits when you sign up.)

Two-game matches. We'll have a method for reporting the results of your match.

Schedule of rounds (with Pacific and Eastern times for USA, plus CET for Europe):

Saturday .... PDT ........... EDT ........... CET .......... Scenario
Check-in ... 6:00- 6:45 .... 9:00- 9:45 ... 15:00-15:45
Round 1 .... 7:00- 9:00 ... 10:00-12:00 ... 16:00-18:00 ... Saverne Gap
Round 2 .... 9:15-11:15 ... 12:15-14:15 ... 18:15-20:15 ... Vaumicel Manor
Round 3 .... 11:30-13:30 ... 14:30-16:30 ... 20:30-22:30 ... Into the Cauldron

Sunday ...... PDT ........... EDT ........... CET .......... Scenario
Check-in ... 6:00- 6:45 .... 9:00- 9:45 ... 15:00-15:45
Round 1 .... 7:00- 9:00 ... 10:00-12:00 ... 16:00-18:00 ... Japanese Counter Attack
Round 2 .... 9:15-11:15 ... 12:15-14:15 ... 18:15-20:15 ... Gates of Moscow
Round 3 .... 11:30-13:30 ... 14:30-16:30 ... 20:30-22:30 ... The Meat Grinder


Central Command: We will have a Zoom room open throughout the tournament. Check-in at the start of the tournament will be in the Zoom room. Standings and pairings for each round will be posted in the Zoom room.


OVERLORDS

We will have 5 Overlord periods: 3 on Friday, and 1 each on Saturday and Sunday. I've designated a Basic scenario and an Advanced scenario for each period. If we need more tables, we'll open up more tables.

Overlords will be played in Vassal, version 10.13.1. For players who need training or help with installation, we'll offer help. (Please don't let me forget this later.)

Overlord signups will be taken in advance, on a separate thread. I'll start the Overlord signups in mid-July.

Day ...... PDT ..... EDT ..... CET ....... Basic scenario / Advanced scenario
Friday .... 6:00 .... 9:00 ... 15:00 ...... Prokhorovka / [Tarawa] Bloody Landing on Betio
Friday ... 11:30 ... 14:30 ... 20:30 ...... Battle of Lauban - Action 2 / Rats in a Factory
Friday ... 17:00 ... 20:00 .. (2:00AM) .... Moyland Wood / Khalkhin Gol Encirclement
Saturday . 14:30 ... 17:30 ... 23:30 ...... Peleliu Landings / High Stakes at Bruyeres
Sunday ... 14:30 ... 17:30 ... 23:30 ...... Roi-Namur Landings / Twin Battles at Warnach & Bigonville



REGISTRATION

There is no entry fee for this event. Please sign up on this thread.

I'll cross-post this announcement on the regular Memoir English Forum for the players who aren't online yet.

Thanks Sam for this great opportunity; I will participate in both events (contingent upon availability of internet, if I'm not at home...)

From what I understand one may play less games than the maximum possible (namely not all 6 Swiss games). Is this correct?

Yes, you can skip a round. The object of the game is to have fun.

I haven't used Vassal yet, but I will try and see if I can get and understand it.

Signups for Overlords haven't started yet. When they do, I expect that to be on a separate thread.

When you sign up for Memoir Online, you automatically get 50 free credits. (They call them Gold Ingots, or "GI.") Each game costs 2 or 3 credits (I forget which), so the initial 50 credits is somewhere between 16 and 25 games. If you need more than that, you can buy 200 more credits for $8.

They did a great job with the interface - it's very easy to learn and to play. A tutorial explains a lot. You can right-click on any hex to see relevant Help cards, and click in "i" icon in the upper left to see the scenario Information.

Sam,

Thanks for the help last night.

I meant to ask you if you checked to see how many consecutive games the DOW online game can handle. You could be having 40+ games going on at the same time, in addition to their regular load.

Len, you weren't here back when they first released Memoir Online. They can handle a lot more concurrent games than we'll be giving them.

We haven't met yet, but I'll assume you're already registered on Memoir Online and know how to use it.

I'll send everybody a Zoom link -- via DOW Private Message -- for the Central Command room a day or two before the tournament. Go there during the 45-minute check-in period, so I can confirm who is present and make the pairings for Round 1.
