8 player round robin tourney (PS3 only)
Standard rules of fair play established in other round robin tourneys apply. there will be no oxford. X-raying is not allowed. If in democracy or opponent has great wall all peace offers must be accepted but opponent gets one full turn to counterattack. Accidental freezes will be handled by players in the match. If no clear winner can be decided after freeze, then the match will be replayed. each player will play 2 games against the other 7 members. all civs must be used once, with the exception of china and america. after the 14 games are completed the top 4 players will move on to the playoff rounds. the 1 and 4 seed, and the 2 and 3 seed will meet each other in best of 3 series. the winners will then meet in a best of 5 for the championship. civs used in the 1st playoff round will not be eligible in the final series. the higher seed in playoff matches will host the 1st, 3rd, and 5th games. ties between the 1-4 seeds will be broken via head to head record. if ties can't be broken in this manner the higher seed will be determined by a h2h matchup (ffa if more than 2 are tied). all ties in which to lower seed does not make the playoff will be determined by h2h or ffa play.
participation is open to all board members or chat room participants. all i ask is that entrants effort to complete matches asap.
any and all disputes will be mediated by the tourney host (me in this case).

I can play this. Have not played much on my PS3, but will be cool to do a tournament.
*Sigh*. I guess i'll join. I don't like playing without the oxford option but whatever. I might have to tie a string around my finger to remind me it's off limits since i'm so used to having the option. Gonna take some getting used to. I think you need to make it clear that X-raying, demo/GW glitching is a no-no. But, u also need to elaborate on democracy and GW rules. If u attack someone who is in demo they do get a full turn to counterattack, right? Before you can force peace on them. Similar rules for GW i assume. You also need to decide how to handle accidental freezes. As well as other types of freezes that aren't caused by players. What if you're winning and game freezes up? You get auto-win or u give opponent a rematch? What if u start on an island? You get a restart or it's just tough luck?
Every question you asked is covered in the rule section at the top of the first post.......

I thought newsgothic was going to sign-up.
I would, but my schedule isn't very flexible. If I were in a quadrant with Japya, xWise, Star, and Raven, it might work.
Anyway, have fun guys... it will be fun to follow the results.
Need one more and were ready to rumble. Any of you xbox guys who have a ps3 want to come and get destroyed? The door is open
You should ask MartinJones. The few time I've logged, he was always there playing civ rev and interested in playing player match. He also lurked the forum....

I think i played you a few times here and there, good to see you on the forum.
Seems we got 8
I, cbloyola23, the king of japan and spain, declare "LET THE KILLING BEGIN!!!!" GL to all. anybody thats not on the forums ill will be communicating with to coordinate games and give neccasary info. If your a forum member start getting your games in and post your results here with a little summary of the killing. Ill try to post chatroom members summary if possible. should be a lot of fun.
Anyone who doesnt have me as a friend yet plz add me, IN_DIA is my tag.
I will be around most days to play
Just played 2 games against aledeus.
Game 1: My russia vs. his arabs. Bad matchup. Anyway, i walk for 5 or 6 turns and find no AI caps. Even if i would've found one i only picked up 10 gold from a named tile. Spot i settle in isn't so great but it has wine. After i settle, next turn i see french borders pop-out from under clouds. I send out just 1 warrior to get gold/map knowledge before i start teching hbr. He gets enough gold for me to rush first horse when i do get hbr. So after getting hbr i get a HA formed pretty quick (within 4 or 5 turns). Though it's non-vet, unfortunately. I have to vet it up attacking AI as there are no barbs left. I get to Paris just as they get up their first archer (non-fortified). I take city around 2500-2200 bc. Aledeus takes out Greece for demo shortly thereafter. He tries coming in direction of Paris with a vet HA but i have a nice chokepoint set up already. I decide to put my HA on a galley and go after Tripoli. I get it easily and am able to easily hold it. (continued...

....but he galleon drops 1 of my crappy 2 pop cities with fish. I try sending a spy in to his free trading post city but for some reason the spy comes back out without completing her mission. I try sending her in again next turn but he rushed a counterspy. Even though i had 3 caps i could see the handwriting on the wall. He had like a 14 or15 to 5 tech lead with CoL, Dem, and fundy. I hadn't even got CoL yet. I built couple of non-vet legions to try to take back my crap city but his single pike held city. I forgot to mention he already got 7cities early and he got SoC late. No artifacts for me. Very little gold and only 3 cities. He wins.
Game 2: My romans vs. his aztecs. Got a walk-in on London for monarchy. Was nice since my cap was on dye. I got out 6 cities plus free settler really fast. Around 2500 i estimate. He must've had bad luck moving his settler cause he didn't settle until around 2500 bc. When he finally settled he tried taking out usa but i had already sold them BW. So he failed. I win this 1.
just played 1st game vs wise. my egypt vs his france. settle 1st turn get hanging gardens. pump out 2 warriors and get 40 gold from 1st hut 30 from second hut. run into romans and aztecs. threaten aztecs for 25 gold and take rome with horse army for code of laws at around 3000 bc. go take out aztecs and block of wise at 1 square penninsula. I have most of the map. expand get industrialization build cruiser fleet and cat armies. drop em off. he calls it. gg wise
Got in 2 games vs civstar. Went 1-1. Nothing really to tell. My aztecs win vs his spanish. Walk find friendly then walk in on him. Second game my japs lose to his arabs. Horse army kills me. I keep building warriors waiting for him to get wounded but he attacks me 4 times and never gets wounded. I run out of money and have to try desperate 4.5 vs 4.5 warrior army on hill vs vet horse and lose. Game over
Nice job for you guys getting this together and actually going, well done
Doesn't sound desperate to me. Seems like horses usually lose in that situation—just bad luck.

Sec game My russian vs his zulu.
I get an amazing start, pick up 2 friendlies, 1 for HBR and 25g, and spot 7cities.
I settle take a 1flag barb, get 50g, and then Japyaknees gets a freeze.....so we redo it.
This time i can settle between Japan and rome. Pick up 25g from a friendly walking there but miss the walkin on rome. A WA 2 turns later still grabs it. Walkin on Japan around 3200 aswell. I tech archers and set up some def on the north. Never really get any gold going, only 3 barbs in the whole south half. Gotta hammer out the def and he galley drops Kyoto, and drops his 100g city on a 1 tile island next to it.
I hammer out a galley and put my WA in it, next turn take his 100g city with my WA, beating a single warrior. From here on i should take control of the game tbh. He appears to get 2 GP from artifact, not sure never got any message. he GB Eitc and GS Nav, thats bad for me.
Anyway due to lack of gold i cant get anything going much, he gets a CA, takes his 100g city back, although it doesnt show me any image of it. But hes nice enough to tell me.
He makes it elite at my cap 2 turns later beating an AA 50/50. And takes the match.
Nice played Japyaknees.
Mario09 has replaced woody keller. He also goes by martinjones. hes a veteran and a very solid player. tourney just got a little more competitive.
Can the guys who is not added by me add me?
Got both games in against Mario09. Both were very quick.
First my mongols vs his romans.
I get a speed start, pick up a hut and a nametile for 35g, and settle on a nice spot next to the arabs and take them 2 turns later for fundy. get 2 barbs and another friendly for a caravan. I meet the romans at 3200 or so, when i already have a HA and 1 single horse. I move my single horse close to his cap and he kills one of my warriors
Next turn i gallop around his warrior and walkin. 1-0 me
Then we got english vs Col egypte.
I settle very close to him with just 10g from name time.
We get some warrior skirmish in but 2 barbs i manage are both giving me techs. He gets a walkin on me after some end turn moving so this one goes to him. 1-1
It sucks when u get an amazing start like that then have to redo it cause of a freeze. Were u frozen too or just jap?

My English is poor, but its easy 4 me talk about my 2 matches vs weismuller. 1st my japan vs his arabs: i founded my cap, then i saw borders of his cap, i went desesperate with my warrior throw his cap, he made and army and i lose. 2nd: my english vs his russian: again very close, i sent my archers to asfixiate him, beats me with his ha. Then i send and archer army and a horse army i put them in a galley, after i put in a mountain beside his cap. I use a gp for feudalism, i made a knight army, and he abbandon (concedes). He said he had worst start ever, not my case: 2 cities including 2 dyers and 1 fish and a lot of hut and barbs.
I know. I wasn't suggesting he caused it. I've played him many times and he's never cheated me in any way. I just think it was very sportsmanlike of u to give him a restart when u weren't frozen and had such a great start.
Just played forum twice down here the results.
My aztec vs his aztec. He finds 7cities in 2 turns nuff said.
My spain vs his zulu.
I get blocked by arabs on a hopeless south point of the map and Forum starts in the middle of nowhere aswell far away from any AI. Both get a slow start but madrid is on whale so i can start pumping out some settlers. Got quite abit of gold from sailing around with a few galleons. Forum tries france but when he gets to them i declare war on them and its way to late to still grab them. We both did not bother with any AI much, more focused on eachother i supposed. I find pyramids, shift into republic, and pump out some settlers. I sailed the whole world around withmy first 2 settlers and i swear the amount of whale was countable on 1 hand. Anywayz i just decide to settle at random, after 13 cities i go into demo and get 3 barrack cities starting. At this time i got a slight tech lead esp after taking atlantis. Im first at Monarch, and he goes into demo aswell. Steal a ga from arabs and my first gp was also a GA. I see some blue cities pop up and i flip one of them, next turn i flip another one next to it.
I steal a GS from the french and tech cruisers, after that i GS indust. Switch to gold and start building some cata's. My cities were everywhere on the map and i got my 3 barrack cities nicely positioned for a 3 side attack. He managed to take back both flipped cities with a KA abit later but by that time i got my armies ready. I get a GS through culture and use it on corp. I switch to fundy and after i got rid of his 2 KA that were roaming his lands it was quickly over. 1-1 again.
Just played 1 game vs Civ star.
My indians vs his Japan.
We both walk quite abit and i settle on a 2 tree spot close to the aztec with just 10g. I send my first warrior to a barb and my sec warrior to attempt the walkin.
He makes contact on a hill next to it at 3200, and it seems like i got a good shot. Im teching HBR in the meantime.
My warrior kills his Barb and i get a sweet caravan, i can just drop it off at the aztec before the walkin. I sell them the caravan and walkin. Then i notice a japanese warrior standing next to the aztec cap, it seem i beat Civstar to it . He attacks but loses. I gain HBR from taken the Aztec, so im guessing he is already horse rushing.
I can rush 2 horses now so i send 1 ahead to check him out, while barricading my sec warrior on a tree to hold him off, since i dont have an army yet. I move late but he was waiting with his HA, and he kill my single horse. Next turn he attacks my warrior and i rush another horse, still only 2 now, my warrior manage to wounds his HA though. I leave him aztec cap because im outta gold, he takes it next turn with his wounded HA. I try all or nothing with the 2 single horses i got, and kill his HA on the sec try, 3 vs 3.
My leftover warrior finds another barb, and i can make my first HA wich i move towards Civ, i see that hes not playing with the end turn button anymore so i reckon he went on def. He couldnt have much gold after rushing a HA.
I get 2 more horses, and get a caravan wich i sent to the english from the barb my warrior found, with 2 HA heading towards his cap i feel pretty confident.
I attack his cap wich has a WA in it and i cant win 9-7.5. I manage to withdraw before he kills my HA though. He uses his single wounded WA to kill my first HA and now has a double wounded WA. He moves back in his cap the next turn whereafter my sec HA finishes the job.
Played my 2 games against Civ_Star. Went 1-1. Game 1: My french vs. his egyptians (stonehenge). Walk settler, get hut. Settle in 3700ish on hill next to barb. Rush warrior & take out barb in 2 turns which shows me AW. Tech hbr. Another hut shows me 7C on opposite side of mainland. Take it with galley i got from barb around 3400ish. Get a HA out almost immediately & send it to Delhi. Rush galley and get AW. Switch to fundy. Start hammering another HA to take Berlin on a 5-6 tile island at north pole. Take Delhi around 2800ish. Take Berlin a few turns later. Put that HA on galley send towards civ_star. Send other HA to Athens. Hoping they only have single pike when get there. Also spotted SoC soon after getting AW but i decided to guard it until after i got my first gp. Which was a bldr, btw. I probe Civ_star's territory a little with my HA but never actually see any of his cities just his borders and a few of his units guarding them. I decide not to risk my HA going after his cities...(continued... )
...as he has IW already and has been sitting at 4 techs a very long time (in fact he was at 4 techs remaindr of game). I knew he was preparing a surprise attack somewhere. I seize SoC after getting my first culture gp GB. It gives me a GH and GS. Take out 5 pop greeks for a lesser tech (not demo). He surprise attacks and takes empty delhi. But i rushed a settler out of it few trns earlier for double fish spot. I tech masonry so i can use bldr on Great Wall. I get GW just as he starts threatening my free trading post city and he decides to give in. 1-0 me.
Game 2: My greeks vs his mongols. Very slow game for me this time as i wasted several turns moving settler and wound up in almost exact same spot i started in. He took 1 of only 2 barbs close to me. So it took me forever to get 100 gold. I decided not to horserush this time cause i figured it would be take to long to put a HA together and he already had hbr and located me so i decided to play defensive game early. I put couple pikes in Athens...(cont...)...
...send out warrior to west away from his area. Build galley which turned out to be a waste of resources this time. He takes out japan and gets in republic while still in ancient. Already has ton of cities while i have only 2. I grow AThens to 4 pop with library. Put my 100 gold city on whale then he gets 7C. I concede. 1-1.
