Hi Everybody,

Read this the third reply of Sandy Petersen in the page 5 of Ask Sandy 3 thread:
https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1420112/ask-sandy-3/page/5
For the laziest, the main point is here:

Sandy Petersen wrote:

Q) what do you think of a second season of a CW PBF league?
Sandy – are you asking me to provide a prize for the final winner? Okay, I’ll do it. TBD later. Here is my official vow: if at least 25 people participate in the CW PBF league, I’ll provide a prize
for the first-place winner. If at least 50 people participate, I’ll provide prizes for first & second place. If at least 100 participate, I’ll provide prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place. How’s that?




So Again with the support of Petersen Games (https://petersengames.com)

a SECOND Cthulhu Wars Online PBF League is organized devil.

The purpose : fun , tentacles and fun !


In the first season, we were focused on the core base game with factions from the expansions only coming at the FINAL Table.

Our very first World Champion happens to be: TH Lim

He is the Supreme Old One of Earth (as all games were played on Earth) !
but yesterday the world, now the whole galaxy !! devil

Let's be more serious. I propose that the principles of this new league will be :
- to play only on non-Earth maps (Yuggoth, Primeval and Dreamlands) (It will also help all initial backers to celebrate the coming of all the expansions we were waiting since a so long time ) ;
- N Tables of X players each will be organized
- to play with Neutral GOOs and Neutral Units: X-1 GOOs will be choosen for each table with X being the number of players in a table.
- All monsters will be recruitable in all the tables.
- Only the winner of each table will pass to the following round of Table.

IMPORTANT: If more than 24 players enlist for this second season, Sandy Petersen promises to provide us a special prize for the winner of the second edition of the League !
If more than 49 players, a prize will be also provided to the second best player, and if more than 99 Prizes will be granted for the four best players !!

Other important thing: I maintain and develop a Tool PBF manager that will help to manage very easily PBF game with Excel so that any one can launch and manage a PBF game. And that's a good new as
this league will of course needs players but also referees who will manage the edition, publication of map updates and more important Elder Signs. See the PBF Tool Manager Michael Dursch and i publish in File section of the Cthulhu Wars Forum to see that
even my 3-years old little daughter or a Gug can manage !!


So ENLIST !!

Now let's talk about organization !


1. ENLISTMENT PHASE

a) At least until the beginning of Cthulhu Wars Onslaught 2, enlistment of players (and referees!) is opened with the objective to have at least 25 players enlisted and 5 referees.
Depending on the final number of enlisted players, organization will be adapted !!

b) Assuming, for the example, the number of 25 players, 5 tables of 5 players will be created :


- Table 1 : Yuggoth 1;
- Table 2 : Yuggoth 2;
- Table 3 : Primeval 1;
- Table 4 : Primeval 2;
- Table 5 : Dreamlands 1;
- Table 6 : Dreamlands 2.


c) If the number of players isn’t an exact multiple of 5, either we wait for enlisting to reach one exact multiple of 5, either with the courtesy of Petersen Games, some extras players from the staff of Petersen Games will fill the list of players (Existoid, Sandy or others for examples).

d) TO ENLIST : any member of bgg is allowed to enlist and has to provide :

His BGG name / BGG Pseudo / a valid email address by geekmail sent to me / Time Zone / Country

When the league will begin, the players will be randomly distributed between all the tables.

2. PLAYERS COURTESY

By enlisting in the league, any player takes the commitment to play the game at his table until the end even if he considers his cause lost. An valid email will be asked to each enlisted player in order to the organizers that to communicate with lagging or missing players.
If a player misses to reply to the organization team, in accordance with all players of the corresponding table, a substitute player will be found and this one will finish the game instead of the failing player (and eventually the substitue can qualify for the final table).

The language of play for the league is the english. Of course, use of any other language is allowed if all players of the corresponding table can handle it. devil Cthulhu Ftaghn !

No private bargain is allowed just like if you were at a real life table. But don't hesitate to bargain on the thread of the game in the PBF section of the forum

3. FIRST TABLES ORGANIZATION
a) Referees : We will need a undetermined number referees, one for each table, it means :
- manage the rightful course of the game in accordance with the rules of the game ;
- solve rules issues as they appears in accordance with CW’s FAQ, last edition of the rules etc.
- Managing the value of Elder Signs earned by player as soon as they earned during the course of the game. The last version of the excel PBF tool manager will be used (see the file section of the forum) ;
- being able of managing the regular publication of the most recent state of the map. Note that referee can also be a player in the league. Of course, a referee/ player may not play a game and be the referee of this game.

Note that referees have also a real life besides any tentacle matters and so be kind with them...

b) For this first season, all tables will play with all the factions coming from the base game and ALL the expansions with all neutral GOOs and monsters with a limit of X-1 neutral GOOs by game (X being the number of players at the table). [/u]
The 7 factions will then be :
- Yellow Sign ;
- Crawling Chaos ;
- Black Goat ;
- The Great Cthulhu ;
- The Sleeper;
- The Opener of the ways;
- The Windwalker;

devil BE AWARE THAT YELLOW SIGN and CRAWLING CHAOS just crush all factions in the first turn of tables of the first season (4 victories for Yellow Sign and 2 for Crawling Chaos) devil

c) In each table, the faction played by each player is set randomly and no swap of factions is allowed between players (A good player is assumed to know how to play well ANY faction).

4. FINAL TABLE ORGANIZATION

Only the winner of each table will qualify for the FINAL TABLE.
The organization of this final table is the same that for the first game.

So in this FINAL table, players will play again a random faction and no swap of factions is allowed.


5. FINAL WINNER AND SPECIAL PRIZE :
The winner of the FINAL table is the World Champion of PBF Cthulhu Wars :

« The Supreme Great Old One Player Year 2015 »

(If anyone know how to create a mini-bagde for that…devil)

Special Prize : a cheer place beside Azathoth with his own carved flute AND maybe a special

6. DURATION OF THIS SECOND SEASON OF THE LEAGUE

The organization team (join in as referee !!) expects this second league to finish in 4 months in the worst case :

Enlistment of players and referees : 1 month ;
Play of first tables : 1,5 months ;
Play of the final Table : 1,5 months

Total : 4 months


SO TO ENLIST, POST :

His BGG name / BGG Pseudo / a valid email address by geekmail sent to me / Time Zone / Country

in this thread. I will update the list of enlisted players as soon as they join in the thread posted in the General section of the Forum.
finally i do it also here

Cthulhu Ftaghn !

BTW, the recommendation posted by Petersen Games is to have a mix of Neutral Monsters and GOOs totalling the Number of Players minus one. Having THAT many GOOs and ALL the Monsters in addition could be a bit too much.

Also, are we going to play with the Neutral Spellbooks and/or the High Priests?

Should have added this, I'd like to just referee - as I'm guessing that'll be more in demand.

I'll referee again for this lovely world championship :3

And believe me, I'm glad you're clipping the number of GOO's/Neutrals... If you saw my last PBF it was a fun experience; however, super grueling in modding, players getting swamped by so many things going on, and one of the reasons my uploaded pbf tool had to add so many photoshopped baddies

No worries, I'll have the added benefit of learning to mod and play the new maps at the same time

Wish I knew all the rules better to play, but I certainly will follow these matches.

By the way, Pit isn't your time zone GMT+1?
Or do you really live out of time and space?
