Is there a bonus prize for being undefeated in the group stage?  :green-meeple:

One thing that can be changed in future tournaments:
Now in QF we use this format: A1-B2, B1-C2, C1-D2, D1-A2. In this situation there is a high possibility that two players who played with each other in group stage will play once again in SF. To exclude that possibility it is better to use different format, for example: A1-C2, B1-D2, C1-B2, D1-A2. This guarantees that two players can meet each other in the second time only in "grand finale".

@MrNumbers - agreed. I had spotted that this was a possibility but didn't view it as a problem. Your proposal makes more sense though; next time we run a competition with a knock-out element to it we will arrange the matches as per your suggestion i.e. that winners and runners-up from each group are on different sides to each other.

¿No hay torneos únicamente con el juego básico? ¿Igual que el campeonato mundial que se celebra cada año en Essen?

The format usually changes every year, depending on all the participants wishes.

Are there no tournaments with only the basic game? Like the world championship held every year in Essen?

We have never run a Swiss-system tournament like the world championships but we have held competitions using just the basic tileset, such as last year's Basegame League and our original tournament in 2014. Plus there have been competitions like our Carcassonne Ladder, The Last Meeple Standing and Dream Teams which were never really completed.

Personally I'm most interested in playing without expansions but it seems most people here prefer to include them if we're going to be running an online tournament.
