It seems the St. Louis FanForce is hosting a Galactic Battlegrounds tournament this month, if anyone in the Dayton area plays the game and feels confident enough to play in a tourny with the best FanForce has to offer please sign up! ^.^ Just read the rules and conditions below, and erm... There was something else I wanted to say... Oh well. Here's the message I recieved from Jedi Dajuan concerning the tournament. "Hello! This is Dajuan CR from St. Louis. Our Fan Force is organizing and hosting a Galactic Battlegrounds tournament. Any two players from each Fan Force are eligible to play; they simply must be registered by August of 2004. The players should also be active members of your Fan Force. We want this to be a Fan Force only game, this way we each can cheer our own city/country. I have included the rules for the tournament. The game master is Jedi_Dajuan. She will create the game schedule, enforce the rules, and be the point-woman for any questions or concerns. All players need to contact her by September 12th to give her enough time to set up the schedule. The games start the week on September 20th. Please pass this information on to your Fan Force. I?ll be happy to answer any or all questions you may have. For official game updates visit the Official Game Thread on the FF community board or on the StL board . The Rules If more than 2 people from each Fan Force wish to play, a preliminary round will determine which members will be allowed to play. This way by the time the games reach the national level, each Fan Force has the same number of representatives, with out slowing down the tournament too much. Just must notify the game master, Jedi_Dajuan, by 9/12/04 via PM if you?re interested in playing. (A tourney bracket will be created by the start date.) Players must be a posting member of your FF since at least August of ?04 before the start of the games. You will need the Clone Campaigns Expansion pack to play. Also be sure to download the update from here. If you do not download it you will not be able to play. No cheats allowed. You may be any civilization you wish. All games but the final will have the following specs: Type: Random Map Map Type: Star Wars Local Location: Random Map Size: Normal (6 player) Resources: High Population: 250 Reveal Map: Normal Initial Tech: Standard Victory: Standard The final game will be a Death Match. You will be allowed a week in which to play your game. If a longer time is needed the game master will need to approve it. Both players will need to PM Jedi_Dajuan the result of the game. Be honest. If someone is found to be cheating/lying he or she will be removed from the game and banned for 24 hours. The host of the games will be determined by the players. Whoever has the fastest connection, and no home network, should host it. Players may forfeit if necessary. Be polite to one another. Friendly taunts are fine, but nothing board unfriendly. Prize is titles and colors for the winning team, and bragging rights for the winning city. Games start the 20th of September and continue until they?re done. "
