CCDL - League 'A' Winter 2018
« on: November 24, 2018, 11:57:56 AM »
Players and Chosen Expansions

Fingerwiggles - Abbey & Mayor

Kraftastic - Traders & Builders

Maj. Frost - Inns & Cathedrals

Piet_Agoras - The Phantom

Singing Dwarf - Crop Circles 2

Sinscerly - The Fliers

TheSteveAllen - Count of Carcassonne

Fixtures

Each player is to play a single two-person game of Carcassonne using JCloisterZone against each of the other players in the division. The starting date will be 1st December 2018 and all games must be played and the results posted on this thread before midnight GMT on Friday 16th February 2019. The starting player in each case will be chosen at random.

The tile set for each game will consist of the base game and each of the competitors' chosen expansions, i.e. two expansions are to be used in every match.

The Division

As a result of each match, each player will be awarded league points according to the following rules:-

Most game points for roads – 1 point
Most game points for cities – 1 point
Most game points for cloisters – 1 point
Most game points for farms – 1 point
Most game points overall (formerly referred to as 'a win') – 1 point
Tying any of the above with opponent – 0.5 points

This means that all matches have 5 points available to be distributed to the two players.

A league table with points gained from matches played will be maintained and regularly posted to this thread by the tournament organiser.

The top ranked two players after all matches have been played will be declared 'Champion' and 'Runner-up' respectively and will be considered as eligible for promotion.

In addition to the Champion and Runner-up, the following will be awarded:-

The Brave Brigand – the player with the most league points for roads
The Knoble Knight – the player with the most league points for cities
The Crafty Cleric – the player with the most league points for cloisters
The Fruitful Farmer – the player with the most league points for farms
The Triumphant Tiler – the player with the most league points for winning games

After each match, it is the winner's responsibility to ensure that the result is posted to this thread clearly showing the points awarded separately for Roads, Cloisters, Cities and Farms.

The full rules have been attached for you all to read at your leisure.

Please do not start playing league matches until 1st December, but it would be in all players' interests to try out a few pre-season matches as in my Freshers' Week post earlier today. http://www.carcassonnecentral.com/community/index.php?topic=4138.0

Link to main page: Start Topic about League and explainings

Hi all, as Saturday the league will start. Pls subscribe to this thread so you keep up to date.

Also keep in mind we are not all in the same timezone. So for planning keep that in mind, as it's not really funny if one has to wait an hour for another  :))
Here in the Netherlands we are currently in the UTC+1 as it is winter.

>>>********************************<<<

For as far I know. (UTC == GMT == CET-1):
UTC-5         - Kraftastic
UTC            - TheSteveAllen, Singing Dwarf
UTC+1/CET - Sinscerly, Maj. Frost, Piet_Agoras

Fingerwiggles  is somewhere in space ::)

>>>********************************<<<

I will be able to play my first match coming Sunday evening.
Furthermore I have quite busy scheme with things I do volunteer/work.

Through the week I am on internship so sadly I will not be able to play under work times...
Monday evenings mostly after CET(20.00 - 23.00)
Tuesday evenings mostly always / or I have gamegroup.
Wednesday evenings mostly after CET(20.00 - 23.00)
Thursday evenings once in the two weeks.
Friday evenings mostly  always / or I have gamegroup.
So Saturdays are a no go for me(work/volunteer).
Sundays after church (so sometimes midday, but always evenings).

Just send me a msg some days before and I will schedule something into my agenda O0.

Hope you all will have lot of fun in this competition, I love to play and not only play for the competitive part but also for fun.
So be prepared >:D

I have just noticed that I have somehow missed off Singing Dwarf!! Very sorry about this. I will add him tonight and correct this posting.

This means that League A will have 7 members.

This has now been corrected, and Singing Dwarf has been added. He is in the same time zone as myself (see post above).

Good luck everyone!

Thank you - I've never played the Count before, so I'm not sure that I used the best strategy - I didn't have one for that expansion!  ???

I think I lost on all counts, except for roads  :-[

I had my first game of the season against a very fine opponent in Singing Dwarf who was beaten as much by not knowing the program as he was by me in the game. The controls for the Crop Circles appeared to have us both confused.

I'm not going to go into any deep analysis, other than to say that this time I was going all out to win league points rather than win the game and it would appear that this task is not going to be that easy.

Well played Singing Dwarf, that was a very good backward and forward game and I had no idea who was going to win what, other than being obvious that you were winning all of the roads!!

I wish you all the best of luck for the rest of the season, especially as you have now had your first game 'on-line'.

Well, we have made a start to the League A winter season and the table is attached. Are there any more games planned for this week?

If anyone is having problems with organising matches please contact me. I am always available in the Slack chat room (The Pie Shed).

Anyone up for a game next week? I am a bit sick now and not up for a challenge. You can assume that I am available everyday after 8pm if you just give me one day advance notice.
