Files are going out today for those who have responded. I may have to redo some pairing. :nervous: right now we have 4 so if there are any other volunteers, please speak up.

Please read the information in POST#1 of this thread. It will explain to you the process you will need to follow to edit the scenario file and how and what to do for each step.

ALL Preferences will be left as they are in the file (everything ON except for "Fast Artillery").

Any questions please email me at tournaments@combat-campaigns.com.

I reviewed them and they look good. I'll try to get the Pbem files out for John(txic) and dita as soon as I can.

Who is playing whom? Or are they "blind" matches?


Just curious.....
The matches for each round and players list is shown in the tournament pages. If you go to the Xtreme Area Ladder link along the upper screen menu bar (same bar as the User CP and search link) you will select the drop down box you will see the yournaments link. That will take you to the main tournaments opage. From there select "SP: World War 2". The select the The Phony War - WinSPWW2 [details] link. This will take you to the dedicated tournament page. Go to where it says jump to: and select the scenario you want to look into. 1st scenario would be "TPW1 - In Support of the Poles". Then if you look under Round 1 you will see the paired matches.

Here is the direct shortcut for the matches explained above - Round 1.

Scores and everything will be tracked on the tournament pages as things progress.

Ok, I still dont get this 'mirrored' term. Does it mean that each battle will be played by each player both as first one side and then the other side? i.e. I first play Dita (or someone) as Germans, and then after its done, i play him again as French?

Yes Vas, that is essentially correct. Each Round you play against your opponent 2 times and each round you play a different person. For Round 1 you will play once as the French, the other as the Germans. So you will have 2 Pbem's going with the same opponent, one game in slot 003, the other in slot 004.

Ah yes indeed, that was the other alternative I had in mind...

I sent my setup yesterday BTW, I hope they got through (?).

OK, I had to change up some pairing to keep this rolling. Kaki is now paired against tombell for Round 1. Remember, every player will play a different player every round until they have all played each other one time. I may have to re-arrange matches for a round as players send in their files for me to generate the Pbem's to keep things rolling.

Each player will play as the Germans in a different slot so they are playing each game twice/mirrored (once as the French and once as the Germans).

Pbem files for kaki and tombell have been sent.

Any questions please continue to ask.

I have sent out the set up files for ROUND 2. Detailed instructions were included in the email. Just in case I am going to add them to this thread.

NOTE: The subject of the email includes the term "Rookies". Please ignore that, it's a typo. I copied the template form the other tourney running using the same format. :cry:
