Preliminary Round - Battleship

Post  Nearco on Tue May 10, 2011 11:47 pm

Welcome, players, to the Preliminary round for Revival Round 4. Like earlier games, Revival Round 4 will be played with smaller groups, but this time, we will allow you to have some control of your opponents. For this game

In this game, there will be a 10x10 grid. The rows will be labeled A through J, and the columns will be labeled 1 through 10. Each player will have 48 hours to PM us with their starting battleship location. This will consist of three consecutive squares in the same row or column. For example, "B3, B4 and B5" and "C7, D7 and E7" are both valid starting positions, but "A4, B4 and B5" is not.

After that, each day, each non-eliminated player will PM me with the square they wish to bomb. This will eliminate that square. If that square is the last of a players battleship squares, you have eliminated that player. You will join his group for round 4. If you are the fourth person in that group, you will also be eliminated, since that team is formed.

If two people eliminate the same square, and by doing so, would create a team of 5, the eliminated player will choose which player is on his team.

If a player eliminates two players (since they both share a square), the eliminating player chooses which team he will be joining.

At the end of the game, there will be 3 teams of 4, which will be playing the next game.

Rules Question:

Q1) Let's say player A has eliminated player B, and player C has eliminated players D and E. Player C then eliminates player A, which would cause a team of 5. What happens?

A1) Player C would select a team of four from players A-E. Player C must include himself. Whichever player is not selected would be re-inserted into the game with a new battleship location. The battleship location must be legal.

Q2) Player A and player B eliminate themselves at the same time, creating a group of 2 (or possibly 3). What happens?

A2) We will randomly decide on one player to be eliminated and one player to reselect his battleship location. If this creates a group of 5 or more, then the reselecter will get to choose the team, as mentioned in question 1. Sorry for adding randomization to the game. Stupid corner-cases.

Q3) What happens if a player does not submit his battleship location?
A3) We will decide one for that player and PM it to him/her.

Q4) What happens if we eliminate ourselves?
A4) We would reject any bombings of yourself.

Q5) Will all "attacks" be anonymous or publicly stated?
A5) Yes. Attacks will be stated publicly.

Q6) If a ship is hit, will the fact that a person was hit and/or who it was be revealed publicly or to the attacker/victim only? If neither, what will happen?
A6) If a ship is hit, we will state the square that was hit and who owned the ship. The attacker will be revealed indirectly. (e.g. Player X attacked G5. Player Y's ship resided in G5, which was attacked this turn.)

We considered it, but this gave some ability to target people. If you wanted to play with someone, or avoid someone, this game gives you that chance.

so what your saying is its team vs team? or groups playing games and the winners of each go through? also as far as yen transfers, is there going to be a time/date where that gets cut off?

There will be 3 groups of 4. In each group, there will be 1 winner. So, Round 5 will have 4 players: LSRose and the three winners of RR4.

As for yen transfers, you can continue to do that until you are eliminated. We'll inform you of the date/time closer to the date/time.

You send the co-ordinates of your battleship within the next 20 hours. You send bombing co-ordinates in the 24 hour period after that.
