DBA Online Christmas Open Tournament    

We are pleased to announce
the beginning of DBAOL

Christmas Open Tournament

    All players (members and trials) are invited to take part in Christmas Open Tournament.
    We made the tournament regulation as simple and fair as possible.

  Championship Regulations
  1. Registration starts from December 18 on until January 1, 2003 24:00 Eastern Coast Time.

  2. To register login to Web-based PCM and just click a corresponding link.

  3. The day championship is launched 12 battles with 6 different opponents will be automatically generated for you.

  4. You will be playing 2 battles with each of opponents: you'll switch armies and low/high scorer during this battles to make it fair. Armies are being chosen as historical enemies in a random way.

    If in 1st battle you are:
    1.Low Scorer
    2. Army 96 Arab Conquest
    Your opponent:
    1.High Scorer
    2.Army 73b Later Sassanid
    Then in 2nd battle you are:
    1.High Scorer
    2.Army 73b Later Sassanid
    Your opponent:
    1.Low Scorer
    2. Army 96 Arab Conquest

  5. The scores for each battle are being counted as:

    Winner will get:
    4 points - for win, 1 point - for each element killed, 3 points - for killing general, 2 points - for capturing enemy's camp. (For example, if you win by killing 4 elements, including a general and capturing enemy's camp, you'll get 4+4+3+2=13 points)

    Looser will get:
    0 points - for loss, 1 point - for each element killed, 3 points - for killing general, 2 points - for capturing enemy's camp.

    So as you might have noticed, even if you lost battle you still could score points for killing enemy's general, elements or capturing the camp.

  6. There's a penalty in our championship for not making bounds. It's necessarily to make new bounds within 24-hours after your opponent has made his/her bound during week-days. If you don't, you will lose automatically scoring 0 points for battle. Your opponent will be given 6 point as passive victory bonus. However, you may skip playing on weekends, it's up to you - no penalty.

  7. A special page will be generated where current results and scores will be shown. After all battles are done we will calculate final scores. In case several people are getting final winning score all of them will be given corresponding prize.

  8. The tournament finishes on January 20-25.

Concerning prizes and determining the winners:

    There will be 3 winners among trial players, who will get free 3-, 2- and 1-month subscriptions correspondingly.

    There will be 1 winner among members who will get a free 3-month subscription or one of the gouache paintings (at winner`s discretion) .


Good luck to all of you and Merry Christmas!
