Dear AOE II friends! I am arranging my first 1v1 tournament, one I hope will be entertaining, and not too serious, but still of interest to many players in the community.
My "Pre-Christmas Nomad cup" will have two 16-player brackets: One for 1200 ELO and lower, and one for 1200-1500 ELO.
Sign up by November 25th in my Discord channel: https://discord.gg/yRAKuCrKJ8
The tournament will start November 30th and is to be concluded by December 20th. Details and brackets will be provided after the sign-up deadline.
To sign up, post the following info in the Discord channel "nomad-signups" (my info as template):
Current 1v1 ELO: 1275
Map pool from DE's Nomad starts, excluding Steppe: Nomad, LN, Mountain Pass, Water Nomad, Nile Delta, Pilgrims
All sets BO3, single elimination:
G1: Random civ
G2: Loser picks HM, civs reversed from the random of G1
G3: Hidden civ, picked, but not to be repeated from G1/G2
Random map settings, victory: conquest. **TREATY LENGTH**: 5 minutes (to avoid villager fights early on)
Otherwise standard settings.
A selection of the matches, and obviously the finals, will be streamed at my Twitch channel https://www.twitch.tv/akkalno
Others may stream as well, but if you do, I would very much appreciate a shout-out and a link to my Twitch channel.
Last but not least: The prize! This event is meant mainly for fun, and to engage the Nomad community for some entertaining games, and to compete in their favourite game mode. I will, however, gift a sub on Twitch to their channel of choice to the winner of each bracket, so that there will be at least some extra little incentive to win, afterall.
Hope to see you around for some eventful Nomad action!
