A. Tournament Administrators
If you are plan on running a tourney, you MUST
do the following:
1.) Pass your idea through the club president
GreyWolfBoB and the tournament director DrVonCool, prior to sign
2.) Administer your own tourney and keep
3.) If you want pages for it, then you
must organize them yourself and keep them updated.
4.) If you want to have your own forum,
then you must contact GreyWolfBoBor DrVonCool !! Tournaments will have
only one forum. Campaigns may have multiple forums.
5.) If you want to keep the results on
said forum, then please keep it set up in a sticky thread at the top of
said forum, so everyone knows where to look for it.
6.) Starting date is set with one of the
tournament directors' and GreyWolfBoB's approval.
Any member may participate in a tournament The
tournament organizer may limit the number of participants in which case
the participants should be selected on a first come first served basis.
Note: The Band of Brothers Club Champion Tournament
is exempted from this participant rule. Some special competitions may also
Guideline: One week should be allowed for every
five file exchanges (roughly 3.3 turns) in a battle, plus one week
for contact establishment, troop selection and setup. This schedule should
allow more than enough time to get the battles finished and even allow
for a few minor delays. Example: a battle with 28 turns and variable ending
should end after 35 turns latest (= 28 + 25%), which means 35*3=105 files,
or about 52 file exchanges. Thus the deadline should be set to 52/5 + 1
= 11.5 weeks.
When a tournament deadline is set it needs to
be a hard deadline, no extensions can be expected, especially with the
ample time the above schedule allows. A tournament organizer may deviate
from the above schedule but any deadline set should be hard and fast. This
also means that the tournament organizer should define (in advance!) how
he plans to deal with unfinished battles and their players. A tournament
organizer can weaken up this hard deadline requirement but he must have
good reason! For instance, if greater than a pre-specified number of games
are not finished... Extensions should be no more than 1 week! Extensions
beyond two weeks are not acceptable.
Both players involved in a battle are responsible
for getting the game finished by the deadline. If your opponent is not
carrying their weight you should notify the tournament organizer as soon
as possible so they may look into the problem. It is every player's responsibility
to check with his opponent after three days at latest, and to inform the
tournament organizer no later than a week after the last file was sent.
Should a game not be completed by the deadline
and the tournament organizer is able to single out one player as the cause,
then that player should get some sort of punishment according to the rules
announced by the tournament organizer (in knock-out tournaments this means
he is disqualified and his opponent advances).
D. BoBster Reporting of Tournament
All tournament battles must be reported on
!! Exception: Unless the Tournament Administrator
states otherwise prior to the tournament or tournament round getting underway.
It is the responsibility of all Tournament and
Campaign Administrators to ensure that an appropriate scenario or QB entry
is made on the BoBster for their Tournament prior to the start of each
round, with the scenario or QB name including all the relevant details
so players can easily submit results and that players in their Tournament
or Campaign know which particular entry to select when submitting results!
(Questions or queries regarding BoBster entries
should be refered to GreenAsJade.)
E. Multiple Tournaments
Unless otherwise specified or permitted, 'new
or inexperienced' Tournament Administrators will be restricted to running
'one' Tournament or Campaign at any time. Experienced TA's, or those with
a proven track record will be permitted to run up to or including 'two'
Tournaments or Campaigns at any given time.
Once your Tournament is approved, please stick
to the basic rules you submitted to the Tournament Directors.
Part of our responsibility is co-ordinating multiple
Tournaments & Campaigns by multiple Administrators.
This means, if you start changing commencement
dates, the number of players you are signing up or the number of rounds,
or other major alterations, this can impact on other Tournaments and Campaigns
that are either being generated, or starting a new round.
It can mean that other peoples Tournaments or
Campaigns don't get enough players for that round or struggle to start.
Part of our responsibility is to make sure everyone's
events run as smoothly as possible, that they are all a success!
Thanks for your co-operation.
