Let me raise my own reflection about dorcee drop out and taking her terts like no tomorrow by some of the players here who realized it long ago: it is the way we want to decide the big winner? By investigation who's playing/who's not and bugging those terts? Or by facing 1vs1 games, which all of us hate and love at the same time?

Not triing to create the great discussion, but just thinking on how dorcee terts must be changed hands. We could, as a proposal, reset them to neutral, so if you wanna conquer it you must beat a randomly choosen player on the tourney (as example, if I want one of his terts, I attack, and airwick (or myself, I can do so) tell you who's representing the neutral/dorcee tert. Additionally, attacker should créate the game, only in this case.

Well, Not 100% sure I agree with that, but the truth is, the simple lay of the land is favoring some over others in taking dorcee's terts. Sannheten in particular is positioned to make this a HUGE land grab, and in fact already is. Gaining 6 terts this round without playing a single game... Not sure that's really fair to the players who aren't lucky enough to be in position to take advantage.

MY solution, and feel free to disagree, of course; is to cancel this round and divide up dorcee's terts equally among every remaining player.

Thanks for posting Cards, always supernice to discuss different points of views. Actually, my point was on taking advantadge more tan in the solution. I also thing is not fair, actually if I had noticed that easy way I would have posted the same way. My point is taking, not a bunch but a single tert without battling, if majority is ok with that I'm ok, I'm not and is not the way I understand the game.

I also like your proposal to fix it, but mine would mean more games ;-)

I think that's fine the way it is. No need to change anything. Other players have dropped out in the past and those lucky enough to be nearby took the neutral terts. dorcee hadn't taken part last round, so the smart thing to do would have been to take a punt on her not taking part this turn too. sannheten was better placed to take advantage of this and did so. that's fine with me. not everything is evenly parcelled out in a real battlefield.

Dear all,
It is sad to see Dorcee leave. She's been a hero ever since I started playing, for so many years.
As to the tourney, I am open to any solution. I see that this gives me options that others dont have, so my opinion should not decide :)

I feel like reverting them to neutral is the right solution because that is how it has been played up to this point and is the status quo. I prefer Cards' solution if there hadn't already been precedence. Reverting to a random player would be more fun (every gets new reach in areas they may not be) and equitable than reverting to neutral, but would have been better had that been the standard from the beginning. My personal solution to any imbalance that occurs is to regulate that imbalance as much as I am able within the game.

First of all; sorry to see you leave Dorcee! I wish you the best!

Then about the terts... In previous rounds they turned to neutral when someone left the competition and could be taken by any other player that was next to the neutral tert. This time we are talking about a lot of terts. My suggestion is to cancel this round and make the next round about battling for this terts. I will set up games for every tert and invite all the remaining players to battle for the tert. This way we all have a equal shot on the terts and it makes it more exciting :)

Let me know what you think!

So, 23 6-player games for the terts? I like it
But 23 games at once might be more than some people want to take on. Maybe make it 2 rounds of 12 and 13?

I had a nice round and won 5 out of 6 regular games. But most were defending games so it does not make much difference.

Even 12 6-er games will be a lot at one time. Is there another way it could be done?

What about playing 6 games (since we are 6 players left). The winner of each game is awarded 4(3) terts.

Fun way to resolve this and to keep some fire alive in this tourney. And not that much extra playing really, relative to what we've already invested. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining about the time this is taking at all. This has been my favorite so far of all the meta-tournaments. Thanks again for all your time, air.
