KAC Cup 5 Rules




1. Game settings (changes since KAC Cup 4 are bolded)
All games will be played in pairs (1 vs 1) using following settings:
Map: LD_Mirror_Inland_Sea2 http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=204146
Size: tiny
Climate: temperate
Sea level: medium
Era: ancient
Game speed: quick
Level: prince
Options: advanced start - 80 points, no barbarians, no technology trading, always war, no tribal villages, no random events, espionage on, if both players agree it might be turned off. Rest of options disabled.
Victories: conquest (if no one will win by conquest, count of points at end of game decides)
Separated turns (simultaneous turns disabled)
No AI overtaking
Anonymous leaders
Turn timer: medium
Game turn limit: 200
City elimination limit: 0

If both players chose the same leader, host should uncheck 'anonymous' option and start a game with the same leaders.
If both players agree, game might be played with simultaneous turns or with espionage.
Each player can use the same leader only once in whole tourney.

2. Tournament prizes

Prizes for the tournament where sponsored by KAC - http://www.civilization.org.pl/



Winners will get following prizes:
I place - KAC Cup T-shirt, Civ4: Complete, The Witcher
II place - KAC Cup T-shirt, The Witcher
III place - KAC Cup T-shirt
IV place - KAC Cup T-shirt

3. Tournament system
Tournament will be played using single elimination system.

4. Games dates
Each tournament phase lasts for one week - from Wednesday till Tuesday. Players will set up dates for their games in separated forum. If players will be unable to find a suitable date for their game during the week, game has to be played on mandatory day - Tuesday 19:00 CET (Central European Time). First round of tournament starts on 10th December 2008.
If one player will not show up in mandatory date, player who waits in lobby should post on forum in their thread 'I wait in forum'. After 30 minutes game is won by walk-over.
If both players won't show up, they both loose by walk-over. Then player who should play in next round with the winner of this game wins his next game by walk-over.
If both players won't show up for the final, they both end up with second place in tournament.
Game deadlines must be kept. The only exception is holiday season - Christmas, New Year, but players must warn in advance that they will not be able to keep the deadline.

5. Technical stuff
Player listed as first in pair is host of game and he is responsible for all game settings. Games should be set up using lobby. If players can not connect to each other, they should use hamachi http://www.hamachi.cc/ - network interface emulator. Game should be set up in lobby and second player should enter this game using option 'Direct IP' and supplying IP address of host, which is emulated by hamachi.
If one player suddenly quits the game, the other player has to wait 15 minutes. If quitter will not come back, he is considered as loser of that game.

6. Saving and reloading
If game is not played on mandatory date, then on request of one player game has to be saved and continued later when both players have time, but not later than on mandatory date. If game is played on mandatory date it cannot be saved and finished later. Player who has to suddenly finish and quit (during mandatory date) is losing the game.

7. Games reporting
Games should be reported on forum in the same thread in which players set up for that game. Winner should post information who played and who won. He should also at least briefly describe how the game looked like - which nations they used and how he won.
In case of conflict players have to send via email save made at the end of game to tournament administrators - this will be the only prove that game was played and how it ended up.

8. Setting of tournament pairs
Application period lasts till 9th December 2008. Applicants must use their nicks from civ4 lobby and should be posted in this thread: http://forum.civilization.org.pl/viewtopic.php?t=8286 . This is an individual tournament, however civ clubs members have right to apply as a representation of their clubs and/or countries (logo of club and nation flag will be displayed next to player's nick). Clubs have right to seed their players. Players applying individually will not be seeded. When application period will be closed a tree of players will be build up - players will know with whom they will play up to the final of the tournament. While building the tree of players we will consider all existing players' rankings to make sure that best players will meet at the end of tournament.

9. Other issues
Every aspect of tournament not described in those rules will be arbitrated by tournament's administrators: LDeska i Peter. Contact administrators using PM in KAC forum http://forum.civilization.org.pl/

Notes:
CET - Central European Time.
Official forum of the tournament: http://forum.civilization.org.pl/viewforum.php?f=209 posts should be posted in English or Polish.

Panda, u can post, that u want to take part and for which country and clan in any of the threads LDeska posted everywhere, though u still have to register at the kac-forum for the tourney itself.

LDeska, If I remember it properly, the biggest problem at registering is ur "I am no bot" verifying question, because the answer has to be given with exactly the right spelling and in polish afaik. I had to try some times till I got a question I could answer as well.

I corrected that issue long time ago - the "I'm not bot" question is both in English and Polish and answers are accepted in both languages. Here the problem was that Pandoras' email server didn't accepted emails from our provider (at least I think so). He has an account on our forum, I've activated it manually and he's in :)

To others: last day to sign up!

For now we have 56 players from 14 countries: POL, GRE, GER, RUS, UKR, KGZ, FRA, AUT, ESP, SRB, ITA, ROM, USA, NED

It would be best - as each game has to be played with different leader you should post in your game thread which leader you chose. It's also simpler to set up a game - each game will have it's separated topic.. so please do register on our forum.
