World Cup of Carcassonne Central - 2016
« on: September 21, 2016, 01:02:08 PM »
Yo dudes.

It’s been a fairly aggressive year so far in terms of the two expansion leagues that have been run. But hopefully we’ve all learnt a lot about how to play with Princesses, Dragons, Fairies, Magic Portals and Towers in the process, and hopefully most of us are still talking to each other (albeit only occasionally but I don’t think that’s anything to do with the tournaments).

So, with these two tournaments behind us it’s now time to face up to this year’s final challenge: The 2016 World Cup of Carcassonne Central!

As was the case in 2014 and 2015, the World Cup of Carcassonne Central this year will consist of a group stage (run like a mini-league with 4 or 5 players per group) followed by a knock-out stage with the top 2 players from each group qualifying to go through to the sudden death round. You won’t actually suddenly die if you lose a game in the knock-out stage (hopefully) but you will be eliminated from the competition whereas the victorious among us will progress through the quarter-final, semi-final and final-final!

A lot will depend on how many people are able to take part and I haven’t decided which expansions will be included at each stage of the competition yet either. But expect to see Inns & Cathedrals, Traders & Builders, Princess & Dragon, The Tower, Abbey & Mayor, Bridges, Castle & Bazaars, River 1 & 2 and most of the mini-expansions supported by the current version of JCloisterZone occurring at least once each! Stay tuned for more specific information.

Considering how long I’ve allowed previous tournaments to run on for, the plan is to get this one started before Essen which is now just over 3 weeks away. I will be being more ruthless about allowing slow-to-organise games to hold up the rest of the tournament this time as well, so be prepared to face losing by default if you don’t have time/ can’t be bothered to arrange your matches with your opponents (in other words, make sure you're read our Code of Conduct and are prepared to stick to it as closely as possible)

I’d also like to point out that this will be the last Carcassonne Central tournament that I will be responsible for organising. This isn’t to say that there won’t be any future tournaments  as these responsibilities will be taken over by our very own MrNumbers whose assistance to me has been of huge benefit over the last two and a half years and who has also organised and overseen several Carcassonne tournaments in real life.

That’s all I’ve got for now. Please feel free to share this open invitation with friends and family and encourage other people to take part if they could be a bit handy with the tiles. We had 40 participants last year and whilst I don’t expect to beat that this year it’d be good to see as many players taking part as possible which means players who are already taking part in the Welcome Tournament are very welcome to join this too!

I'm in, but go easy on me because I haven't actually played Carcassonne for a while.

Well, I didn't plan to participate in a further tournament this year, due to scheduling problems in the Tower league.
But since this is the World Cup, I'll promise to to everything to be available!
So, count me in!!

Of course, I want to participate. With the caveat, that I have very few time till Oct, 2nd, and possibly also from Oct, 20th till Nov, 2nd. If this is no issue, I'm in.

When you lose, do not look at what you lost, but what's left to win ..
