Seems like a spit in the face for the final tie breaker being decided by original seed seeing how both teams would have tried their best, i would have preferred to see bo 3 series where either team needs to win 2 series to advance and secure their spot (not counting their original matchup). This makes it more competitive between the two tied teams imo who are fighting for their spot.
But in the end i dont mind what the final format is.

found the first bug: You cant dock the shoreline on Windmill, since someone put only medwater along the coast instead of normal water, don't think it was planned that way (well assuming there is fish + extra Islands) 11

Can you guys make a map pack with all these maps for practice purposes?
I have just put this together in a few minutes but it appears to work fine :smile: Note that there is no map pack for the tournament but this does seem a good idea for practicing with.

It's not possible to include all of the maps in the pack, but most (25) of them are in there. I left out Arena, Black Forest, Hideout, Islands, Team Islands and one or two others I think.

Same as with Clan Masters: The Final Showdown. Seeding based on rating: current, average over the past 90 days and highest rating. After that team leader of the top teams will be asked to rank the teams. The combination of these will be the seed of the teams.

Both. Ranking will be leaning more to TG rating though, but 1v1 rate will still count for something.

Market technologies, Coinage moved to Imperial Age and removed Banking completely.
What is the effect of removing banking? Does Coinage reduces the base tax to 0% so basically achieving the effect of banking with just one research or there is no way to achieve 0% base tax in this mod?

There is no way to reach 0%
Thanks Robo. Elaboration for clarity,

  • Without Coinage: This is default till imp when coinage becomes available. Tribute Tax 40%, this means if you send 100 res the other player receives 71. Effectively losing 29% of resources.

  • With Coinage: Once coinage is researched in IMP. Tribute Tax 20%, this means if you send 100 res the other player receives 83. Effectively losing 17% of resources.

apparently the mod isn't installing itself when the host has selected it and players join that don't have the mod ... any chance that can be changed?
