Re: TM Tour Season 19 Sign up open
Good luck Robmonster in Season 19. This will be my second season, finishing 5th in my league in Season 18. We will both be in Division 8. The best thing about being in the bottom division is that you can't be Relegated to a lower Division if you score in the bottom of your league

Best of luck!

Jester - Try to sign up again, and it will tell you that you already signed up. That's how you confirm that you're in.

Re: TM Tour Season 19 Sign up open
You will placed in a group, and 4 games will be started for you within that group. Those games are in all respects normal games of Terra Mystica - you get to pick your faction, you play whatever strategy you want, and you try to win the games.

Sadly no fire and ice factions, though

Re: TM Tour Season 19 Sign up open
So why would you not sign up, if you have the time?
I wonder how weak are bottom leagues? Are there players who sit in div8 for years? Or do they just stop signing up and quit? What are the lowest points for non-droppers? In other words, do bottom leagues have fast turnover? Move up or just abandon the site? Is there an xp system for just playing for long time? Like planeswalker points in MtG where even last places get points for participating. Not that it matters...
Also, am I right to understand that to get the prize, you have to become number one in league 8 times in a row in 16 months period? Tough stuff for some plastic bits, no?
But I quite like the cute 1-2-4-8-16... system, and clever 4-7 combinations to make it all even. Now if there were 2,3 and 5 player tourneys, which might last shorter or longer.

Re: TM Tour Season 19 Sign up open
My perception is that there's about 15% turnover in the tournament each season - that is, there's 1000-odd players in the tournament each season, of which ~900 are returning players and 100-200 are new players. "Most" of the departing players are from the lower leagues, but that's also because "most" of the players are in the lower leagues to start with - 80% of the players in the tournament are D6 and below.

D8 is new enough that there isn't really anyone that's been stuck in it for an extended period of time. For a while it didn't exist at all, and then for a while it was small enough that it was exclusively new players - all returning players would fit into D7 and above. Its only been the past 2 or 3 seasons where its even theoretically possible to get stuck in D8.

That said, there are definitely people who've spent a long time in D7 - I know of some players that were in D7 when I started playing back in Season 11 that are still in D7. There's no xp system of any sort that will eventually let you advance just based on tenure - although you figure eventually you'll get a lucky season with weak opponents or advantageous factions and bump up to D6. But that can easily take a while.

As for why one does or doesn't sign up... I mean, ultimately, the point of the tournament is to have fun. I suspect a lot of the people who drop out conclude that they just aren't enjoying it enough to warrant the time commitment. And while there's probably some degree of correlation between "tournament success" and "tournament enjoyment", there surely are at least some people who just enjoy having some competitive games, independent of whether they win, lose, or draw.

Re: TM Tour Season 19 Sign up open
As of this moment, there are two people eligible for D3 or higher who are not yet signed up for next season: Halskov (6th place, D1) and iainuki (4th place, D3-3).

The highest-ranked returning player is dgrazian (5th place, D3-2, S17), who does not qualify for either of those spots.

Thus, as of this writing, there would be:

* No second-place promotions into D1.
* One second-place promotion into D2 (Mihas)
* Two second-place promotions into D3 (lscrock and kruppy)

However, there are still a few hours for this to change.
