World Cup of Carcassonne Central 2017
« on: November 06, 2017, 12:58:19 PM »
Hi guys!

Another year passed by and I am sure you are ready for another challenge, which is know as The World Cup of Carcassonne Central, 2017 edition.

Previous World Cups were hosted by Danisthirty, but I always was "behind the curtain", so the fact that I am hosting it now doesn't change much :)
For whose, who isn't familiar with the format, please, check out 2014, 2015 and 2016 World Cups.
Like in previous years, competition will consist of a group stage, followed by a knock-out stage with the top 2 players from each group qualifying to quarterfinals, winners advance to semifinal and the most experienced ones will play in Grand Finale!

A lot will depend on how many people will be taking part, but be sure you'll 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.

One thing I want to change (as much as it is possible) is following the terms, which will be given for playing your games. I already had made some difficult decisions about disqualifications and forfeiting games in the past and World Cup won't be an exception. Of course, everyone of us could have some force majeure and it is totally understandable, but you need to be at least in contact with your opponent or me, so we could find a solution together. Long story short, if you feel you won't be able to play all your games till the end of the competition, think twice before applying to World Cup 2017 C:-) And, of course, make sure you have read our "Unwritten rules" -  Code of Conduct and are prepared to stick to it as closely as possible.

We had 40 participants in 2015 (unbeaten record), so why can't we beat it this year?
One more thing - I have some prizes to choose from, so be sure your win won't stay unnoticed :D Maybe even, prizes won't be for the first place only... O:-)

Needless to say - I’m in! :(y)

Let's see who's going to be the next owner of the World Cup trophy which is currently standing in my living room ^-^. I'd like to make an attempt to keep it there, so I'm in. :(y)

Is there an entry deadline and/or proposed start date?

I am not sure!  I have not missed a competition since the beginning but the last couple led to me not really enjoying myself because of my frustration with how bad I was playing so I will think about it!

I enjoyed the last 2 Leagues a lot so i'm keen on giving this one a try as well!  (hopefully, I'll do better, though)
But same question as Jungleboy: any idea of start date and the timing of the different phases?

I'm sure that many of us would really miss you. Even if you had some bad luck recently, I felt that you were always a tough opponent, and we played very exciting games.
By the way, is there anyone other than you who took part in all competitions since the first world cup? (I suppose MrNumbers and danisthirty are two candidates for that.)

Very well said Leven; I agree 100%!

I think it's just the three of us left... :'(

If it is only us three, I can't leave the fold! I will play but I am going to play for fun - no pressure on myself.
