To follow the brackets, use this link
http://challonge.com/tournaments/signup/7fYClU1qds

Current Challengers:
Sunrise Samurai, playing as elves-----Withdrawn
Midonik, playing as humans------Eliminated
Doomcarrot, playing as orcs
Ayush Tiwari, playing as orcs-----Eliminated
Constantin, playing as humans
Menselot, playing as humans------withdrawn
SacredNut, playing as elves------Eliminated
General Brave, playing as humans-----Eliminated
Stratego(aka Daniel, aka the dev), playing as undead
MikeyHud, playing as undead------withdrawn
KingLawrence, playing as humans------withdrawn

Rules:
-----To start, be courteous. This is a game, not a war.
-----72 hour turn limit minimum before skips are allowed. If you will be unable to play for an extended period, say something. We can work with you.
-----No AI players
-----The "all techs" and "no upgrade" options are not allowed
-----Population limit must be set to 200
-----TC quantity setting is "normal"
-----Map choice must be discussed with your opponent before a match is begun. Certain maps favor one race or another, and it would be greatly unfair for the map creator to have such an advantage.
-----If a consensus cannot be reached, post a request here for a map and settings to be selected by a neutral party
-----Race choice must be announced upon joining the tournament, so that no one can claim their opponent chose a better race.
-----Any other settings must be discussed between players before joining the match.
-----It is the responsibility of both players to contact one another to discuss and create a match in a timely fashion.
-----take screenshots. It allows proof of victory, plus a way for everyone to see the game progress

Further rules can be requested, if deemed necessary.

It has been over a lot of times(as my computer is no more working) playing those great games.Here is your answer

Select your army simple move and while moving keep pressing Spacebar.

Midonik has joined the brackets. Updating the player list. I apologise for the awkward setup, but it's the only way I found for me to set up and update brackets

You probably only registered on the site, not for the specific tournament. It's only showing myself and midonik so far. Try following the link again, after you log in on the challonge site.

Nice! I would like to play in this, although I admit I am pretty rusty with AoF. I suppose I'll go Orcs. :)

Op updated. Doomcarrot added successfully. Ayush, I found your profile and invited you on the site. Hopefully this makes it easier to get you finalized.

Also added race coloring. I'm thinking this color for undead?

Constantin added, Ayush added fully.

Constantin, I adjusted your display name to fix the 125 out. Check if it shows on your end. It's for the tournament, not the account name I'm sad to say.

Player names now show race color.

Nice I like this thread. Good idea with a bracket site/tool to handle that instead of manually.
Thanks!

One suggestion for the rules

why don't the management choose the avenue.It would be a lot difficult in getting a map agreement if one does not know many things for this.

Because I don't feel like picking a map for everyone's games, pretty much :lol: you can always ask for suggestions, but I suggest just letting your opponent offer one, and checking it out.

Features to note:
Water: favors humans, for their superior navy, though undead now compete in that regard. Also files as obstructing terrain.
Obstructing terrain: see the map "the mansion" for an extreme example. Restricted movement prolongs games, as well as increases the effectiveness of ranged and flying units. Starting positions may also be divided, resulting in unfair tc distribution.
Forest: not as bad, but a map like "forest run" can limit building space for anybody but elves.
Corpses: extremely advantageous for undead. A fast created lich can get an army pretty quickly if corpses are naturally nearby.
Animals: provide visibility to elves in fog/explored maps, but mostly are a way for undead to get some easy corpses.

Is there any recommended size? Playing 45×45 maps will take a lot of time.

Judge map size by how active you expect you will be. Smaller maps will finish faster, so should be played if you have less time to play. If you plan on playing 2-3 times a day, feel free to use a map large enough to fully research everything, even uruks level 3 if you like.

Actually not that bad for elves, since sentinels came around, as well as dodge and treetop archery. Scenery might bore me though.
