City Tournaments

What are the City Tournaments?

The city touranaments are held every second weekend. Players from all cities can join the tournament and the city's aggregate score is calculated and cities ranked accordingly. The top ten cities in each tournament wins gold, the number of which is calculated as a percentage of the city's expansion costs.

How Do I Join the Tournament?

To join the tournament you enter the official tournament channel by clicking the mode button on the game screen in the tavern and choosing official tournament from the drop down list. Once in the tournament room you can join an existing game or open one of your own. Please note that for the Catan boards games, only four players games are permitted and you cannot join a game with anybody from the same city (Katimavik Bay city number is 15).

When Do I Need to Play?

The tournaments run for the full weekend, starting on Friday night and continuing until the early hours of Monday morning. In order to be ranked in the tournament, you need to play three games during this period, but you can choose when you want to play. Our recommendation is to try to play in the evenings as tournament games with players from the other English speaking cities tend to be more fun than playing during European peak hours.

How Many Times Can I Play?

You can only play three games. If you are unable to finish a game, that will still count as one of your three games, except that you will receive a zero score for that particular game.

How Can I See Where I'm Ranked?

Rankings for both individual players and each of the cities can be seen by clicking on the scroll in the tavern and choosing the option "tournament statistics". From there you can sort by player, by city etc. Please note that rankings are not finalised until the end of the weekend as other players may still overtake you after you have completed your games.

How are the City Scores Calculated?

Cities scores are calculated by taking the scores of the top 15 ranked players from each city and dividing their total aggregate score by 15. Where a city has less than 15 people enter, the missing scores are recorded as zero and the aggregate still divided by 15, so it is important to try to get at least 15 people to enter every tournament.

What If I Don't Know the Game?

Experienced players will be available to help you learn new games in the two weeks leading up to each tournament. We hope to formalise this arrangement soon, but in the meantime please send a message to waterboy or Vixter and they will try to set up sessions on an individual basis.
