2020 Basegame Knockout League

After the almost finished Basegame League. There is a new concept in the race for an amazing league. Thanks to Halfling for proposing it: The Knockout League. Please read further and understand the concept before joining :)

Maybe, when this will be a thing that will work out great. There could be a serie of knockout leagues.

How does this league work?

As in the title this will be a knockout league. The players that win will survive and go on to the next round. Until there is one player left. He will win the league.

How do we play each other?

Matches will be played online using the latest version of JCloisterZone (currently 4.4.2)  or could be played on BGA (BoardGameArena, as some members here play there to and are premium). Both use the old version of Carcassonne and that means there is no abbot in play.

Please ensure you have downloaded this and can run it on your chosen device well in advance of the start of the competition. Technical advice, general guidance and practice opponents can all be found on the Forum or Carcassonne Central Slack channel (see link at the bottom of this post). Or by posting here of course, but it's recommended and helpful to be available on Slack if possible.

How are games / matches arranged?

As this is a knockout league, no one would play against everyone. So that means, this will be a very short league compared to the ones before.

--- Code: ---For example p1 and p2 play a match, p3 and p4 play a match. p1 wins and p4 wins, they continue in the knockout league and will be matched against each other.
--- End code ---

For matching the players I am going to draw straws (with names). There is not a start player specified, as there is only one match between two players. So the game start will be at random.

May it be that in an odd change there will be a draw, there should be a rematch between the two players. In this case the player that was second in the first game, is now required to start! (note, this is not possible on BGA. Thus you could try to start the game multiple times again in there or play it through JCZ). Please post both games in this case!

Posting Scores

It has become a Carcassonne Central tradition that the victorious player will usually post screenshots of the final scores and end-game landscape back to the forums, along with a short writeup of the game(s). However, it doesn't really matter who posts what as long as the final scores breakdown from the game is posted. So please ensure that either you or your opponent will take responsibility for this once your match has been completed.

Anything else?

- JCloisterZone (external link): Downloading this is a good place to start if you haven't already downloaded it.

- JCloisterZone FAQ: Carcassonne Central hosts the official JCloisterZone FAQ, a guide for people taking part in CarcC tournaments. If you have any questions or difficulties related to starting an internet-based game through JCloisterZone you might find the answer here.

- Slack: "Boardgaming chat/ banter/ tomfoolery/ nonsense with intelligent, fun people" might sound like the sort of thing you'd have to call a premium-rate phone number for. But not anymore! Slack is a great way of connecting with others, and is very handy for chatting in person rather than via emails/ private message to arrange mutually convenient times to play matches.

- The Unwritten Rules: This is recommended reading for anyone taking part in any of CarcC's online tournaments. Most of it boils down to courtesy and common sense, but it's written down because sometimes common sense isn't as common as we'd like it to be...
