2nd Pandemic Online MEMOIR'44 Championships & Overlords: July 30-August 1 Sat, 08 May 2021 17:49
.
Because the World Boardgaming Championships (WBC) is again cancelled this summer, instead of running the big Memoir tournament there, I'm going to run an even bigger tournament online.

The 2nd (and hopefully last) 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 30 (Overlords only), Saturday July 31-Sunday August 1 (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.


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 ... Moyland Wood
Round 2 .... 9:15-11:15 .... 12:15-14:15 ... 18:15-20:15 ... Sword Beach
Round 3 .... 11:30-13:30 ... 14:30-16:30 ... 20:30-22:30 ... Dug in at Sidi Omar

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 ... Rzhev
Round 2 .... 9:15-11:15 .... 12:15-14:15 ... 18:15-20:15 ... Bloody Ridge
Round 3 .... 11:30-13:30 ... 14:30-16:30 ... 20:30-22:30 ... Breakout to Lisyanka


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; as of this writing, the current version of Vassal is 3.5.8, and the module is 10.14. For players who need training or help with installation, we'll offer help. (Please don't let me forget this later.)

Friday .... 6:00 .... 9:00 ... 15:00 ...... Assault on Ponyri

could you please check Game 3?
https://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=9 8153280#replay:turn=7

what happened there (after shot 5)? why wasn't I allowed to armor overrun? It told me to take ground!

I got disoriented and did the stupidest of all moves in my next turn, so lost the game. I never whine for losing, but not with bugs...
Unless i miss something?!

Hi Photios, because of the North African Desert Rules (Actions 9)
On successful Close Assault, Armor may move into vacated hex and move 1 additional hex before battling again.

The text of the option in online is different. You can then "take ground" move another hex (or not) and still battle.

The text got you confused I guess. But the programming is good and allows for the overrun (with or without the extra move).


So no bug, but you got flustered by not knowing how the North African rule is programmed online. Live and learn Smile

I have played so many games with these rules; probably I had never noticed it! Or I was too tired yesterday
Thanks for response
