Gelato The Hunters Top tonnage tournament II.Recommend
Welcome fellow U-Boat Kapitans.
Each player will start with a Type VIIB U-boat, with the first patrol starting in September 1939. Starting rank will be "Kapitänleutnant" with a trained crew. Play will continue until June of 1943 or until sunk, scuttled, captured or removed from the tournament by other events.
2. Sunk, Scuttled, Captured
The Tournament will run till June ´43 (= 4 weeks playing time) or till there are no more Boats available to send on patrols. Players whose Crew was sunk, scuttled, or captured during the first week of play are allowed to re-start with a new Boat. After that, if you´re sunk, scuttled, or captured your campaign ends.
3. Winner and Prizes
The Tournament is a Top Tonnage tournament - the player with the highest number of sunk tonnage will be declared the winner, even if sunk, scuttled, or captured. Player that dropped out of the tournament due to other reasons will no longer be part of the ranking and are not eligable to win.
3.1 If you fail a scuttle attempt and thereby surrenders a working Enigma machine, you can not win the tournament.
4. Ruleset. Optional Rules
The game is to be played with standard rules, including their most recent updates as linked on the GCL 142.

6. Deadline for submitting your mission report
As stated by Stig Morten and in the format shown in Stig Morten's comment below.
Keep your geeklist entry updated to ease Stig Morten's job.
Players not reporting in time will suffer the following penalties:
1: Their tonnage for the week will be zero.
2: Crew advancements, promotions and decorations received this week will not be applied.
3: All possibla patrols for this week will be treated as failed patrols with all consequences.
4: The Captain will be downgraded one rank (lowest rank possible OlzS)
7. Assignment Process
Book-keeping and rolls for patrol assignments will be done by Stig Morten. For each U-Boat there will be 6 assignments rolled, since this is the maximum a player can play wihtin 12 months. The patrols must be taken in the order rolled / listed and can be played as long as their starting date is wihtin the time span of the current period played. Based on Refit time you might not be able to play all patrols you´ve been assigned. Just ignore patrols that cannot be taken.
An additional d6 will be rolled for each Kommandant to determine if he´s allowed to choose his own patrol depending on his rank. Remember when you´re allowed to choose your own patrol it must be a legal patrol from the list of the current time period.
8. Special cases:
Rank increases wihtin a week will be taken into account for the rolls of the following week.
U-Boat upgrades work as described in the rules you may start your next patrol with your new U-Boat right after you received it. However the effect on the patrol assignments will be taken into account in the assignment rolls for the following week.
Captains permanently assigned to the Mediterranean or the Arctic may return to regular assignment procedure when they receive a new boat and crew due to a refit time of 5 or more months. If this happens contact the tournament director and he´ll provide you with new assignments for the rest of the week.
There is no cheating in the Gelato Tournament.
