    I'll start recruiting soon methinks. If I can actually make it, which is doubtful.

    But we'll see.

    would you be available after? I really Really would like to have you on my team. I doubt all the matches will be in a single day, and maybe we can get an extension?

    The plan was to host the matches in one evening (as per earlier tournaments)...

    All matches in each round will happen simultaneously (otherwise it would take forever).

    Also I was planning on keeping the first round match simple (single planet) so it doesn't take too long. The later matches will involve more orbital. As it's only 4 rounds shouldn't take too long, as for the date- I'm avoiding clashing with any of the other tournaments so I'm not sure if an extension will be possible as there is something planned for the 6th.

    I'm also going to release partial specifications for each map prior to the event so people can practice on something similar (although I'm not releasing *the maps* themselves as otherwise people just learn the spawn locations).

    I've not had any teams registered yet- can people let me know if you're having trouble signing up on Challoge? This is the first time I've set one of these up so just want to make sure everything is ok :)

    Also - Why non-shared teams? It'll likely turn to 3 sections of parallel 1v1s which once a player has claimed a victory over a base their forces will just converge on another base - it'll be much more interesting if it is shared - surely?

    Sorry Tatsujb, this is the only date available due to other planned events. This is the first tournament of this style, however I'm hoping it wont be the last! The date is a bit awkward due to it being close to July 4th (a big holiday in the States). If I don't run it on the 5 th though I won't be available to host it again until mid August (and then I'll have to find another slot). Also not many people play non-shared team games really, so I'd recommend you get a team together and get some practice games in and you should be in a good position.

    We've done a shared army tournament before, I wanted to try something different. Also the idea is that to win you need to support your team-mates. Remember that non-shared teams can use each others Teleporters, and share excess resources. The key to winning this one will be keeping all 3 commanders alive, so if someone is getting hammered you need to either send assistance or get them out of there.

    Also to avoid this just being a set of 1 v 1 matches I'm going to include orbital in the later rounds.

    It will be interesting to see how it plays out- however I think if people practice a bit there could be some interesting plays develop from non-shared.
