The tournament at Games2 Die 4 was successful and had 34 players from all over Indianapolis and the surrounding areas such as Kokomo, Muncie, Evansville, and Greenwood. There were a lot of great looking armies and dice rolling.
So as posted originally, we were trying a new scoring system in this tournament. We would like your opinion of how it went.
What are your thoughts. Yes or No. If you want to expand on why that is good also.
Basically, we tried a flames of war point system where a win was worth 5 points. If you achieved your own personal goal and won you got 6 points. If you stopped your opponent from achieving his goal, won, and achieved your goal you got 7 points. In the loss you got 0, +1 for achieving your goal, and +1 if you stopped your opponent from getting their objective. So you could get a max of 2 points for a loss.
There was a best general award that only had win/loss involved in the total points, and a best overall, or Renaissance man that combined sportsmanship, painting, and generalship. The following results are below.
Name Place Rank Pts
Aaron Aleong (Spaguatyrine) Best General overall 1 91.72
Jim Bennie 1st Best General Tied 2 87.23
Nick Mansfield 2nd Best General Tied 3 82.67
Jared Deremer 1st Best General Tied 4 80.73
John Brothers (Uberdark) Best Army 5 80.39
Luke Tansy (Luke) 6 76.32
Justin Curtis (Dodger3) 2nd Best General Tied 7 74.80
Stephen Kennedy 8 72.66
Bryan Lerg 2nd Best Army 9 70.79
Nik Maier (The Gravemind) 3rd Best General 10 70.78
