2017 World Cup - Knock-Out Stage
« on: January 29, 2018, 04:20:20 AM »
Here are the fixtures for the Quarterfinal of the 2017 World Cup.
This year I have changed the format a little bit to avoid the situation, in which players could possibly play each other again in semifinal. This known problem was already discussed once.

Here are expansions that will be used during this final round. I have made some minor changes from last year (excluded Wind Roses completely, excluded A&M from final game etc.).

QF:
Traders and Builders + Abbey and Mayor + The Corn Circles + The Count of Carcassonne + GQ11 + The Phantom = 123 tiles (starting tile and 2 tiles from GQ11 are excluded).
GQ11 option "The Pig herd is present on the farm tile" is ON.

SF:
Inns and Cathedrals + The Tower + The Festival + The Goldmines + The German Monasteries + Mage and Witch = 134 tiles (cloisters from the base game have to be removed).

Final:
Traders and Builders + The Princess and The Dragon + Bridges, Castles and Bazaars + The River II + The Besiegers + The Flier + The Phantom = 163 tiles (starting tile is excluded).

Please, make appointments and play your games! Good luck to everyone!

I think there's been some kind of mistake: I distinctly remember you saying that if any of the second-place group finishers were tied on group points then the tied player with the highest PD would get an automatic win at the QF stage?

Is this still the case or do I really have to play Leven... ::)

Maybe I have said that if you need to play vs. acting World Cup champion then you automatically lose? ;D
Nevertheless, interesting games await us C:-)

Automatic or manual, I have a feeling the outcome will be the same!

I have just tried out the quarter final set-up, and there is a problem with the deployment of followers into a farm with a barn. JCZ allows you to do this, both when a farm is joined and at the end, but the newly placed farmers just stay in the farm and do not score one point per city.

With given information I propose to postpone all QF games until proper investigation of this case. Thanks, Steve, for testing and pointing on the bug!

I have posted a screen shot in Slack. It will help you to see the problem. The file was too big to post on here, and I did not have time to 'crunch' it.

On my second run through tonight, I have just deployed a follower from the Blacksmith's quarter (roads) onto an unoccupied cloister and successfully scored 9 points. I think that I was not given the option of deploying from the cathedral. This is the first time I have tried the blacksmith's quarter, as I don't usually bother with 'robbing' roads, but I don't think that this has anything to do with the Abbey and Mayor, as was the other bug.

I don't really understand this attitude by someone who won two leagues (out of three) last year, and had beaten me in the quarter final of the 2015 World Cup.
One thing is clear: there won't be any easy games in this stage of the competition. All participants are among the top 11 players of the recent Elo rankings. It's hard to predict who will be the winner.
