Formula One M44 First Edition! Fri, 09 April 2021 19:56
Hello everyone,
I'm currently playing the official Memoir 44 Online League, a perfect way to have fun by facing players from all around the world!
Yesterday I had an idea: I aimed to become an active member of this fantastic community, so I decided to create a new soft tournament: M44 Online "Grands Prix Championship", inspired by Formula One.

How it works...
Well, the first edition will consist of 8 Grands Prix (4 classic well-known scenarios and 4 EXPERT-YOU'LL NEED EXPERT MODE!).
In each round-Grand Prix, you'll play a 4 game match on Memoir Online against your designated opponent on the indicated scenario (for every scenario, 2 games/battles as Axis and 2 as Allies).
All participants will get ONE MONTH to arrange a date with their respective challengers and to play their matches (basically, 1 Grand Prix per month.)
Pay attention, in each round you'll not play only vs your opponent, but against everybody...In which way? At the end of each Grand Prix, I'll prepare an overall ranking chart for that "race". The winner of the GP is determined as follows:
1) The winner is the one who gains the most medals across the 4 battles of the GP.
2) If the number of medals is tied, the player with the best medal differential in his 4 battles is the winner.
3) If the medals' differential is tied, the player who destroys the most figurines across the 4 battles of the GP is the winner.

Points system:
1st place-champion: 44 points
2nd: 38 points
3rd: 34 points
4th: 30 points
5th: 27 points
6th: 24 points
7th: 22 points
8th: 20 points
9th: 18 points
10th: 16 points
11th: 14 points
12th: 12 points
13th: 10 points
14th: 9 points
15th: 8 points
16th: 7 points
17th: 6 points
18th: 5 points
19th: 4 points
20th: 3 points
21st: 2 points
22nd: 1 point
23rd and 24th: 0 points

So, as a consequence, the winner of the "Grands Prix Championship" is the player who gains the most points throughout the 8 Grands Prix. And in case of a final draw? We'll check the total number of medals. Cool
Mmmh I miss something...The "Constructors", the teams! At the beginning of the Championship, I'll sort the players in 4/5/6/7 teams (depending on the number of participants...). So, every "driver"-player will race for himself and for his team: to determine the Constructors' Champion, I'll sum up the total points of the teams' members!
Last but not least here are the 8 scenarios-Grands Prix:

1- (1-31 May): BASTOGNE CORRIDOR EAST
2- (1-30 June): ON THE ROAD TO SIRTE by Hydrommel (EXPERT)
3- (1-31 July): THE MEAT GRINDER
4- (1-31 August): PAULUS' LAST OFFENSIVE by FFM44 (EXPERT)
5- (1-30 September): TILLY-SUR-SEULLES by Jdrommel (EXPERT)
6- (1-31 October): LINYI ONLINE by Nygaard (EXPERT)
7- (1-30 November): HELLFIRE PASS
8- (1-31 December): RED BARRICADES FACTORY

If you want to participate, add an "I'm in" to this thread. Enlisting is possible until 27/04 (April 27th).
Hostilities will start on 01/05 (May 1st).


We will all play not just to win the championships, but for the love of the game and to have fun. Please be sure to communicate with your opponents, and to play your matches on schedule!
I beg you...Obviously, real life is more important than Memoir, but, please, don’t drop out in mid-season, because that creates problems for other players. By joining the tournament, you are promising to play all of your matches.

Are you ready?? Let's start the engine! Very Happy

Ok, I'll play Smile My wife thinks I play in enough tournaments (and I'm inclined to agree), but I think I may have a bit of an obsession (some may say an addiction). So what's one more?

This is the point where the tournament rules become more complicated than the game. As this tournament will take some time, I expect some delay in holiday periods and drop out of players. But when you don't try, you don't know how it will turn out. Count me in.

Thanks to everyone!
Mrmanley, I see what you mean! I'm developing an "addictive" passion for Memoir 44...It's Richard Borg's fault: the game is too beautiful Very Happy

Hi Cpl_Uhl, have you any doubts about the rules? I'm sorry if they aren't clear enough: I'm here to explain them; ask me anything!
I'll be a bit more flexible during holiday-periods. I've seen that this is a common problem also for the other leagues. I'm confident and I hope that we'll find a solution in that case.
