Yo yo yo what's up my dudes!

Faust and I are happy to announce the 1st Faustmann 1vs1 Tournament. We have been planning this for whole 3(!) days now and believe this is the right time to announce it. It will start on 29/10/2016 and will presumably end on 12/11/2016.

Our vision is for a tournament that rewards all aspects of what makes a good Wargame player. Not just an ability to play the game well, but also versatility in deckbuilding and a solid grasp of the map pool. In order to challenge the players in each of these aspects, we came up with the following rules:

  • Every single match will be Bluefor vs Redfor
  • No map can be played twice in one set of games
  • Decks used by the players have to be sent in before the tournament starts and can’t be changed throughout the tournament

Complete Ruleset

We have a list of 16 very strong players:

  • Benosyo
  • Nandemonai
  • Mike
  • Stauffenberg
  • Kangaroo
  • AmberT
  • Valh
  • Patton
  • Firestarter
  • ML_Alexandr
  • Greyhound
  • Putin187
  • MrGhosty
  • TrySail
  • Captains
  • Zerydal

The bracket: http://challonge.com/1st_Faustmann

There will, of course, be a prize.
Prizes for participants reaching certain places are the following:
1st place: 135$ + 1 Key for "Squad"
2nd place: 50$
3rd place: 30$

♂Faustie♂and I will be casting the tournament upon its completion, and possibly livestream some of the casts as well.

Also, everyone can win a bit of money by predicting the outcome of the tournament, find out more here: viewtopic.php?f=155&t=58491&start=40#p987090

If you have any questions, feel free to ask (but please read the rules first).

Good luck for the tourney. I can't wait for the casts.

Isn't there a dedicated subforum for that kind of thing ? :geek:
