I was watching March Madness today and was thinking it would be a great idea to have a tournament like in College basketball which would be single elimination. We would all play the same scenarios in each round and it would be a different scenario in each subsequent round. I think it should be scenarios nobody has ever played before and the armies should be about equal in numbers. At the end of the tournament the top three players would get points towards their promotion from their armies.

So what does everyone think of this ?

I like this, will have to discuss it with the Staff. Maybe a custom edited game on an existing map.....

Sounds good, I was thinking maybe custom OOB with large European style Mirror Armies maybe 30,000 men apiece. I don't know about using Cavalry or Light infantry/Indians etc you and the staff would need to decide that and also how many turns the scenarios would be...

30,000 might be a bit much, we'll see what we can come up with. Might have to be all 100+ battalions if we do that. Got to have cavalry & light infantry. Indians we might keep out.

We will see what everyone says.

I like the idea, myself. Sounds like it could be fun. You know, reading it gives me another similar idea. What about a World Cup type tournament? Split participants into 4-player pools. Conduct a round-robin in each pool. Top 2 in each pool advance to a single-elimination tournament to determine the champ. Bottom 2 in each pool could go to a "best of the worst" tournament (not part of the World Cup, but just to give even the worst among us an extra game). Depending on how many were interested, the tournaments could even be done as double-elimination, or as a detailed enough bracket to actually play games determining every single position (1st through x).

Interesting ideas. But 30000, does seem a bit much.

Keep the ideas and refinements coming.
