Pandemic Online Memoir Championships & Overlords: July 31-August 2 Mon, 29 June 2020 08:52
.
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 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 98 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

Great diverse turnout in the signups so far. Everything from past WBC champions to people posting their first-ever messages on the DOW Forums. I look forward to seeing you all!

You still have nearly 1 week to sign up.
