    Battleship Dueling Tournament!
    "You sunk my battleship!!" ~ A spinoff of the famous hashbro game.

    1st Place Prize: $1250 nuffies

    2nd Place Prize: $500 nuffies
    3rd Place Prize: $300 nuffies

    Entry Fee:
    $0! Completely free!
    (but if you'd like to donate to the gold/silver/bronze pool to make the prize bigger and more fun, it would very much be appreciated! A $15 donation is recommended!)

    How to Participate:
    Post in this thread! You'll be added to the tournament bracket~
    The deadline to express interest is January 13th!
    We're looking for 12 players!

    How the Game Works:
    Most of the game will be conducted over PM.
    You can read standard Battleship (board game) game rules here.
    In this tournament, we play with several twists though. The most important change is that if one of your ships sink, they stay sunk forever and you can't use them in future matches. Instead, it is recommended to "retreat" when it seems like the match isn't going well in order to forfeit this round.
    Note: Damaged vessels do repair entirely between matches.

    The tournament occurs in two phases.

    Phase 1: Group Stage (Round Robin)
    12 Players are randomly placed into either Group A, Group B, Group C.
    There are four players per group, and you must finish top two in your group to advance in the tournament.
    Each player will play exactly 3 matches. The time limit for each match is 48 hours.
    Match points are determined by: sunk enemy ship = 5pt, each damage dealt = 2pt
    For every turn played = +1pt to each player.
    We use FIFA rules for distinguishing between group-stage ties.

    Phase 2: Elimination Stage (Double Elimination)
    This is an 6-player seeded double elimination bracket.
    In order to win, you will need to play at least 2-3 matches.
    Match time limit is still 48 hours, but it is not possible to tie.
    After 48 hours, we play with sudden death rules. The next person to make a hit wins the match.

    The ships available to each player are:
    Aircraft Carriers (x2) - 5 units long
    Battleships (x2) - 4 units long
    Cruisers (x4) - 3 units long
    Destroyers (x2) - 2 units long
    However, you can only field a maximum of 5 ships per match.

    If you make it the Elimination Stage of the tournament, you will gain 6 ships as reinforcements:
    Aircraft Carrier (x2), Battleship (x1), Cruiser (x2), Destroyer (x1)
    The top two overall scorers in the Group Stage skip the first stage of the Elimination Bracket, and they receive 4 ships as reinforcements:
    Aircraft Carrier (x1), Battleship (x1), Cruiser (x2)

    We are also playing with SALVO rules.
    If you have 5 ships in play, you can make 5 shots on your turn.
    If you have 4 ships in play, you can make 4 shots on your turn.
    If you have 2 ships in play, you can make 2 shot on your turn.
    (In other words, number of ships = number of shots)

    The board is a 10x10 board.
    The coordinates span from A1 to J10.

    To @villain (in private PM):
    I'd like to bring 2 cruisers and one battleship to this match.
    Place the first cruiser from A1 to A3
    Place the second cruiser from D10 to F10
    Place the battleship from J1 to J4

    (it's a good idea to get a piece of scratch paper to mark out a grid!)

    My turn! Salvo at E2 I7 D10!

    Gahh! I7 was a hit!
    Well, I'm firing back with A1 B2 C3 D4 E5!

    They all missed!
    Fire at I6 I8 H7!

    Noo! You sunk my destroyer with H7!
    I'm losing too badly! I'm going to cut my losses and retreat! Bye bye!
    Former tournament rules:
    The the first part of the tournament is run similar to a swiss tournament system. There is no elimination and everyone plays at exactly three matches. You can pick your opponent (which is why it's called a "duel") so long as they have played the same number of games as you.

    The second part of the tournament is elimination-style. There are three brackets:
    Gold Sea: Players who had a 3-0 record (whatever the best record is).
    Silver Sea: Players who had a 2-1 record (2nd best record).
    Bronze Sea: Players who had a 1-2 record (3rd best record).
    Players who have all their ships sunk are eliminated.
    If you lose on the Gold bracket, you drop down to the Silver bracket, Silver drops down to Bronze, etc.

    Spectator Betting System
    As this game is operated by the Casino, obviously we have a betting system in place.

    At any time, any spectator (or participant) can purchase a betting ticket. You can purchase as many as you like by paying @villain.

    The price of one ticket will vary at the stage we are in the tournament:
    • Group Stage Price: $10
    • Elimination Stage Round 1 Price: $20
    • Elimination Stage Round 2 Price: $40
    • Elimination Stage Semifinals Price: $80
    • Elimination Stage Finals Price: $160
    A betting ticket represents a share of the jackpot if your candidate wins.

    1 ticket = 1 share.

    For example, if the jackpot is $500, and 5 tickets have been bought for @iampsyx (the winner), then each ticket is worth $100.

    Current Jackpots:
    • Jackpot Pool: $160
    Jackpots will increase as tickets are purchased!

    Does that mean you're interested in playing? xD

    EDIT: I'm assuming yes since you made a donation.

    Yep! I'm poor! But I kind of made the game for the novelty of it (not necessarily because the prize is fantastic)

    Donations are most definitely welcome though!

    @StormHawk @DRECK

    Thank you for the donations! Do you think it's best to put it towards the grand prize or the silver/bronze ones?

    Also, does that mean you were interested in playing?

    It's a PM conversation. It happens as quickly as your partner responds.

    The Jan-Ken-Pon tournament has a 24-hour activity rule. No activity in 24 hours = forfeit.
