Paths of Glory (POG) fans will have an opportunity to play the campaign game for up to three days with a guarantee of three Campaign Games in the Swiss portion on Sunday and Monday. The top eight players will then advance to Single Elimination play-offs.
1.1 The Campaign Game Pre-Con (Sun., July 29 through Mon., July 30)
The campaign heat will begin on Sunday at 2 p.m., using a Swiss format designed to yield eight top players for the Playoff rounds. Players will bid for sides. We will determine the top finishers by
We will play three rounds (7 hours each) of the campaign game until Tuesday. Round 1 match-ups will be determined by AREA ratings. Subsequent match-ups will be random among those players having the most points.
1.2 The Playoff Rounds (Tues., July 31, beginning at 9 a.m.)
The Playoff Rounds will occur on Tuesday and Wednesday. Playoff round contestants will bid sides using the campaign game. Unlike the preliminary rounds, no draws will be allowed. Draws will count as an Allied win. Players should bid accordingly. Match-ups will be random among the players, with the exception of not matching up players that previously met in the campaign heat if possible.
1.3 Bidding for Sides.
2.0 Schedule: Notification will be given 30 minutes and then 15 minutes prior to the end of each round. For results to be counted, players must submit a completed score sheet (provided at the tournament) to the GM. Games with score sheets not in by the scheduled end of the round will be adjudicated on the spot by the GM and at least one assistant GM. Chess clocks will be available throughout the tournament for the GM to sample speed-of-play. Extremely slow play will be a factor should a game need to be adjudicated.
3.0 Tournament Officials: GM: Peter Reese. Assistant GMs: David Docktor and one other will also be drafted on Monday.
4.0 Special Tournament Rules: From rule 4.2.4: Remove one AH "at start" Corps from the Reserve Box and place it in Stanislaw. Remove one RU "at start" Corps from Reserve Box and place it in Lutsk. Players will use this setup unless both players decline. Recording with pen and paper the cards placed into the discard pile is prohibited. Players may refer to the event markers. Players may also review the dead card pile to confirm an event or war status if both players agree.
